I want to start this off by saying that I am still new to this game and DBGs in general (saw an RE game and had to buy it) so I don't know all that many strategies.
I would like to ask you guys how you feel about the Hunter in this set. I'll admit, I just lost a game because of it but I feel like it was completely unfair and I guess I'll explain what happened and hopefully you guys can give me some insight on how you deal with it.
So I bought Nightmare earlier today and a friend and I had time to sit down and get a game in. We used the standard "Nightmare" setup for our first game. Anyway, as we were going through it I had a bit of a head start because I got Luis as my starter (two snipers) and my buddy got Leon (two handguns). I was able to get a few points on him before he got going. We had about 3 points between us for the most part. Problem is he revealed a Hunter, I take 20 off the top, unfortunate but not enough to upset me. We continue and he reveals another, I am still in the lead by a couple and I get hit by its effect again, down to 40/40 health. He didn't kill it though so it went back in. We continue and I get unlucky and reveal the boss when I only had an incendiary grenade (but it was dealing 75 dmg!). I get downed, and now have 20/20. Anyway, immediately after I get flipped up he reveals the Hunter again. I am dead. Out of the game. He has 27, I have 30, I give him the win after peeking at the top card and seeing it is worth 4.
At this point I am pretty upset. Games, I know, I wasn't that upset though. So, what do you do in this situation, do you slow down, let your opponents get more decorations then you so that you can stay safe? I don't like that idea because then I have to stay behind until both Hunters are killed. Do you not play with it? (or is it just me thinking it is too powerful?)
Or did I just get really unlucky, having the Hunter go back in and getting hit by it's effect 3 times? I don't like the idea of getting blue shelled in Mario Kart and this is pretty much the exact same thing. I feel like it should knock 20 off the character with the most Health.
Thanks for reading and I appreciate any insight, even if it is pointing out something stupid I have done.
