The Curator Posted October 28, 2017 Share Posted October 28, 2017 The first few times it's like, wow this boss is hard. Clearly we can't win because we aren't good enough yet. Eventually it gets to, this boss is so hard that we really are only going to win if we have the right team composition. Then it goes to, alright we need the right team composition and every member must know the strategies to fighting him. Finally it ends up at, doesn't matter how good we are if the game decides we lose well then we just lose. It really doesn't feel like the Boarrior is a real boss fight once you've realized that the "challenge" comes from him massively spamming his half-health hitting long range instant smash once he's reached low health. Have gone into the fight with multiple good teams and we lost just, because. There's no substance to countering the Boarrior or improving your survivability and there's no substance to why a team loses or succeeds. Outside of learning the basic strategies of spreading out, luring him away from dead players and letting him sleep on the heal that's it. That isn't enough to win yet there's nothing else that you can do to actually win, the boost which allows you to win is just random chance. Does he randomly swap targets to your Healer or Wilson, does he randomly swap targets to somebody attempting a revive, does he land an attack off before he falls asleep, does he walk off of the heal before it puts him to sleep, does he camp on some corpse, does he precisely strike when two players randomly are close to eachother and gets the double hit, does he target the DPS instead of the tank when they're both the last ones left alive. In the end it just feels extremely arbitrary. A normal good team isn't actually enough to kill him consistently, you need a good team in order to roll the dice to have a chance of winning.
