    Bugs And Concerns

    Good say. I recently purchased The Following and have been really enjoying it. This is also the first time back playing the game in a few months. During The Following I encountered a few bugs. The most noticeable bug is enemies clipping in to walls or buildings. On a few occasions where I had to either kill a zombie or human, or had to talk to someone in order to progress with a mission, the Zombie or person bugged in to a wall or building leaving me unable to interact with them. I had to reload the game to fix this, or hope to hit them through the walls. Another issue I have, although I may only be misunderstanding the system, is the new Legend Rank system. I do understand that the Legend Rank is an endgame system for you to work towards, it seems to be taking a very long time gaining decent amounts of experience to get to the next level. Given the fact that with each level more and more experience is required to to level up, it really starts to take absurdly long. I feel that some adjustments need to be made to the Legend Rank system.

    Be The Zombie Improvements?

    Alright, so I've seen some other people posting suggestions on how PvP can be better. Techland is fixing the matchmaking process which will make it IMMENSELY better! And while I think this game is amazing overall, there are a few things that I think could be done to make gameplay more fair and fun! What I'll do is post some suggestions for an improvement and a few reasons why I think that's beneficial. Then you can comment and say "yay" or "nay", a reason why, and add your own suggestions! If I and other people like it then I will edit this original post to include it! That way all of the good suggestions can be easily seen. Likewise I will edit out my ideas if they don't seem very popular, or change them as needed! Please leave a comment below of what you think, and hopefully we can get some good idea's that Techland will see! Thanks! Edits will be done in red Additions will be done in green A few of my suggestions (in no particular order): 1. Players can no longer abort immediately. Now this may seem a bit ridiculous since you would basically be making the player play. But here's my logic; - If a player does not want to be put in a BTZ match, then they can turn it off in the online menu, while still leaving multiplayer on for adventures with other players. - Doing so would help people playing as the Hunter find matches with players who would actually be willing to play. - It would help stop people from just leaving their console unpaused at night with the zombie invasion on. Many a time have I found that a player has left the console to do whatever and now I have to wait or abort because I just don't find it sporting to kill a guy who's just standing there My guess is if people are aware that if they leave it on they will be entered into an un-abortable match, they will be less likely to just wander off, at least without turning off the invasion mode. - I would suggest only allowing players to abort if they are going to quit the game. If they abort then they get sent to the main menu. I feel this would make people actually think about if they want invasion mode turned on, and make the matchmaking more effective. 2. Nerf Survivor's drop attack and dropkick. I thought this was nit-picky at first and I haven't had too much trouble with dropkicking, but it's become pretty apparent that this is an issue. I think this would really even out the two sides, and here's why. - A Hunter's pounce is a one hit kill, but can be deflected with UV light, quite easily in fact. A player's drop attack is one hit kill, apparently unavoidable.. - The drop attack has a weird knack for locking on from too far away. This means it takes no real skill or aim to use it and what's worse is that it can be performed off anything, even a park bench. The Survivor can even perform this move after jumping over a Hunter's tackle. Trust me, it's happened to me. - The dropkick seems really OP to me, doing more damage than it should, stunning the Hunter for too long, and is also too easy to chain preventing the Hunter from having a chance of escape/defense. - This would be fixable by a simple button mechanic (such as using the base hit button, perhaps a juke similar to what the survivor does, or a jump). It would be the same thing as the brief second available to deflect a pounce or jump over a tackle. 3. Spit recharge time. It might just be me but it seems like with the new patch they made the recharge time on the Hunter's spits longer. By kind of a lot. Now while some may think that the spits give the Hunter excessive advantage, I don't believe so. Here's why; - The Hunter relies on these to make effective assaults. Given that the Survivor has a UV flashlight and as of right now no limitations on flares, the Survivor can pretty much always deflect a Hunter's pounce. Hunter's need the UV Block spit in order to be able to prevent this, or try to since Survivors can always throw down more... flares... - Hunter's also have the ability to tackle, ground pound, and slap! However tackles can be easily dodged and cause the Hunter to stop running giving the Survivor time to UV and kill it, ground pounds do minimal damage and if miss for some reason make the Hunter stand there like an idiot while he gets chopped up, and slap is about as effective as a Magikarp's splash... All these can really mess up the Hunter, unless he uses the UV shield. Giving him time to make a move effectively and get away. Unless it takes 5 minutes to recharge; another reason why the recharge should not be as long. 4. Survivor Sense. It's vitally important to the Survivor, but maybe too vital? Many a time has it led to awkward staring competitions between the Hunter and the Survivor. And quite frankly I have no idea how to fix that! A comment below explains a bit how NOT having it would probably be unfair to the Survivor, and maybe nothing needs to be done at all. Opinions?? - Someone suggested giving the Hunter the ability to not be detected by Survivor Sense when crouching and I think that's a really cool idea! It gives incentive to the Hunter to be stealthy, the Survivor will still know it's location when it's on the move/attacking, and it would just make the whole think a little bit scarier. The threat of the Hunter stalking the player methodically rather than just relying on combos for kills on skilled players. 5. Hit points & aggression of zombies around nests/Hunter. I noticed this immediately, and it only took a few minutes to annoy the chupacabra out of me. I like the fact that they made them more aggressive and harder to kill, I just think they went a bit excessive. It once took me about 20-30 hits with a machete (dmg about 1800) to kill TWO viles (fast running zombies). My suggestions are pretty simple: - Aggressiveness around the nests should be high, but I don't need to be chased by 30 viles while I go from nest to nest. It doesn't make the game difficult or make you think, it just makes you take longer having to repetitively hit 30 zombies 10-15 times each! I have a Hunter to worry about between nests. At the nests, you can make it rain zombies. - The hit points of regular wimpy Viles should not be 10x more than the Hunter's. I've played a long time to get the amazing weapons I have, and now it seems like I'm hitting them with a teddy bear. I like that they don't get killed in one hit because it makes the game more challenging. But the amount of hit points they have is crazy! It should take me no more than 3-5 hits to kill those zombies. Because while they're attacking me I can't keep on the look out for the Hunter, which makes me an easy target. That... kinda sucks... in like a not well balanced way... - I DO like that the Hunter doesn't take that much damage to kill. It makes it so it's more about the skill of the zombie than just being The Incredible Hulk. I don't really think that needs changing as of now. 2-4 hits on the Hunter is a pretty good number, especially since he can regenerate health. *Footnote: If you type "S-C-R-E-W over" it will replace "S-C-R-E-W" with chupacabra. In fact, I didn't even type chupacabra it's just replacing "S-C-R-E-W" with "chupacabra" as I type. Just a fun fact!

Please leave a comment below of what you think, and hopefully we can get some good idea's that Techland will see! Thanks! Edits will be done in red A few of my suggestions (in no particular order): 1. FLARES!!!! Sorry, got excited. But it seems people have used the duplication glitch to get ungodly amounts of flares and then just making an endless flare trail! Even when spit on with a UV spit they can still IMMEDIATELY place another. So, basically, they're invincible! Tackle, ground pound and slapping them around only does so much damage, and usually if they've duplicated flares, they've done the same with medkits. My suggested improvements are as follows; - Flares do not last the entire game, they burn out in, say, 30-45 seconds? About as long as it takes for your UV flashlight to recharge, maybe a little longer. - A player can only go into a BTZ match with a set number, if available in their bag. Maybe a cap of around 10? That should be plenty, as you really only NEED them if you've been hit by a UV spit. - It also may be a good idea to fix that duplication glitch if it hasn't been already. Even with a patch for that however I would still suggest a cap on the number of flares usable because people who had used the glitch pre-patch would still have an advantage.. 2. Players can no longer abort immediately. Now this may seem a bit ridiculous since you would basically be making the player play. But here's my logic; - If a player does not want to be put in a BTZ match, then they can turn it off in the online menu, while still leaving multiplayer on for adventures with other players. - Doing so would help people playing as the Hunter find matches with players who would actually be willing to play. - It would help stop people from just leaving their console unpaused at night with the zombie invasion on.

If they abort then they get sent to the main menu. I feel this would make people actually think about if they want invasion mode turned on, and make the matchmaking more effective. 3. Give the Hunter the ability to avoid the player's drop attack. Now this one is kinda nit-picky, but I think it would be only fair. Here's why. - A Hunter's pounce is a one hit kill, but can be deflected with UV light, quite easily in fact. A player's drop attack is one hit kill, apparently unavoidable.. - Mainly an issue because the player can do it very quickly and basically after jumping off anything. The player can even perform this move after jumping over a Hunter's tackle. Trust me, it's happened to me. - This would be fixable by a simple button mechanic (such as using the base hit button, perhaps a juke similar to what the player does, or a jump). It would be the same thing as the brief second available to deflect a pounce or jump over a tackle.
