Clarification on Gambit's Primeval Slayer Buff

Everyone knows that death heals Primeval, but not everyone knows all of the intricacies of how the Primeval Slayer buff works. The Gambit Design team wanted to clear up a few misconceptions. [quote]There appear to be some misconceptions about the “Primeval Slayer” buff in Gambit, particularly with how the leading team’s buff count affects the trailing team’s, so we’d like to take this opportunity to shed some light on it! • Our intent for the Primeval phase is that the team that summons first gains advantage. • The number of Primeval Slayer stacks held is unique to each team. • If one team is significantly advanced in their Primeval Slayer stacks, the team that is behind receives ‘bonus’ stacks when spawning their own Primeval. However, the number of bonus stacks received is always going to be less than the leading team’s current total. Think of it as a tow cable trailing behind the leading team. • There is a limit to the catch-up mechanic’s generosity. Even if the leading team is at Primeval Slayer x10, the lagging team will never start out with more than a few stacks when spawning their Primeval. Our twin goals have been hitting the right balance between elasticity and competitiveness and fostering close, dynamic games. Now that Gambit is out in the wild, we’re closely monitoring the conversation around the Primeval phase (and playing a ton of it ourselves). Happy Hunting, The Gambit Design team[/quote]

  • I get the intention of this, but I’ve seen very good arguments against this idea, the best being that the ammunition it takes to build those stacks is precious. With the trailing team being allowed more invades to heal the primeval, and then having free stacks... it actually causes the leading team to waste a significant amount of ammunition compared to the trailing team, which will begin their primeval with a buff and nearly full heavy and super for most of their team. This unfortunately is very abusable and should be looked at further, I think.

          • I am enjoying it quite a bit regardless. Have had some of those close matches where I have come from behind as well when the other team has. Its intense and enjoyable. Great game mode.

          • Anyone getting killed extremely quick compared to last week? I don't really understand the buffs, but I know some parts. However, I was getting one shoted by the ads multiple times a match. The invaders were even worse.

Happy Hunting, The Gambit Design team[/quote][/quote] Alright, this is some BS. Either remove the buff, or make it to where the opposing team does not get any buffs for trailing. If they fall behind, it's because of their own incompetence. Don't reward them for it. I've lost matches because these players manage to summon a Primeval, and then Insta-melt it. Is that fair? Hell. No. Get it right, Bungie.

              • I can honestly say I didn't know that and also how fin stupid that is. After you do all your work this week, come do mine and give me your check. Pretty much the same dam thing. Must be part of the way things go now. No ,loser everybody wins,thats what they teach the kid's now. Shame they don't learn the truth, in life there are winners and losers, you have to pull your OWN weight. The real world is going to be a shocker !

                • I only hate Gambit because of a few choice things. 1: Sleeper Stimulant 2: Sleeper Stimulant 3: Sleeper Stimulant 4: Sleeper Stimulant 5: The obvious lack of the Chimera boss.

Because if any of these folks did they wouldn't need us telling them. Someone find me that *hello fellow teens *gif That's what I picture. Can't wait to see how Luke Smith shits down my throat and sells me D3 at the next E3. God let Anthem be the Killer of D

                            • Why is it that when we get something awesome from you guys its always tainted with something awful? Gambit is awesome. But it is completely ruined by these mechanics and 1 weapon.

                              • Please ignore all those saltbags... I think that it's good to get a few stacks, even if you are miles behind! And if we're being honest, if you can't kill the Primeevil with x5 before the enemy team kills theirs with x1, you're generally a bad player! Hate comments incoming...

If you say you like the game some lvl 1000 fagass will call you a fanboy. Very pathetic. If you dont like D2, have you tried uninstalling it? The community will be better without you :))

                                  • Why dont you just remove being able to see the oppositions names when you invade IF your primeval is up? That way it's more high risk high reward and you dont even need to nerf sleeper Or if that's too hard you get 3 seconds of true sight upon invading so you can see where everybody is
