Thanks for the NSO family membership, it looks like I'll get to play this online after all.

After playing solo for over 35 hours so far I'm looking forward to starting online co-op from tonight after work and finding out if it's as fun as Monster Hunter Tri's online used to be back in the day.

Nice. Ping me and can try and play together.

Not sure if our timezones will line up, I play after work from like 5:40-7pm AEST. But if you're on then, why not I guess. I warn you though, I'm not a great player haha.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

No worries, maybe during weekends? Let me know if that works on your end.



General gamer, fanboy hater

Controversial tier time. 

I rank high Most of the stronger new monsters, they are great. The weaker ones tend to be a bit boring IMO. 

Pukei Pukei is a personal favorite of mine. 
Zinogre would be S tier if I didnt feel they made him easier. Minus a few exceptions, most old monster are honestly easier. 

Diablos has always been a major annoyance to me so I automatically place him in the bottom, but admitedly in this game its probably the easiest its ever been.
Jyuratodus is plain boring and bland. We could've had Legiana or Bazel, but nope, they brought Jyura back.

Crap, then I assume the update wont be coming this month after all. 



Just beat the first Apex Rampage and reached High Rank; while they're a chore in single player I actually find the rampages great fun in a group and a cool addition to the franchise.

Yeah, I'm online most Saturdays and Sundays during that timeframe.

It could still be coming this month, could be a "and you can  play it now/tomorrow" shadowdrop kinda deal.

As for your tiers, shame on you, how dare you put Bishaten and Anjanath in C class you monster.

Zinogre was harder before? Well, damn, maybe I'm just too bad at the game, because while the thing doesn't trash me too hard, it's not a comfortable fight, either. It feels as if it was always on the attack, especially when it goes Super Saiyan, making it very hard to catch it. 



My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first.

Bishaten is very original and its sure is a fun fight, but its one of the easier monsters, hardly a challenge. So I cant really rank him too high. Maybe it does deserve to be in B tier just for the enjoyability.

It was harder only in MHW, because it was added as an endgame monster in that game. It was even more agressive. Its usual dificulty its like in this game. 
Overall its one of my fav. monsters in any entry. 



High rank is less punishing than I expected, though I am definitely not complaining. Should finish up the rest of the 4 star tier tonight. 

I wonder whether the updates will just add 8 star and 9 star tiers of super hard endgame monsters, or some others as well.

Fair enough, for me I don't mind if a monster's not too hard so long as it's fun to fight and a cool design.

Just a personal opinion but I find Tigrex more difficult than Magnalomo



Eh, I think Zinogre, while still not too challenging, is actually still one of the harder monsters in the game if you do him solo. I feel like if I'm to solo monsters in the highest rank, the only ones that put up a challenge are Diablos, Nargacuga, Goss, the final boss (because I've fought it very little), and to an extent Zinogre given how it can punish the player if they aren't careful (which is how I play most of the time lol). However if you're doing multiple players at once, then the only one that is really hard is Nargacuga, and maybe the final boss (Diablos might actually count here too).

For me, by far the hardest is Nargacuga though. Which is a little weird given how I always heard he was one of the lower tier flagships. He feels like the only one who can actually kind of match a 4 man team, given his quick swipes and constant moving around, as well as his compact-but-still-large size, means he's always bound to hit someone usually.

In general, I think the biggest problem this game has, and something they'll probably address in the expansion, is that while monsters certainly do a lot more damage than they did in base World (at least from what I remember, base World was very unpunishing, and this is a welcome change), monsters in multiplayer don't seem to account very well for how much stun multiple players might inflict at any given moment. About half the match in any multiplayer game becomes ping-ponging the monster from one stun animation to the next. Hopefully the elders in the update don't suffer from this.
