I’m going to cut off the small speak and make it as breif as possible : the new tutorial is an excellent entertainment, but really underwhelming at teaching newbies critical stuff such as :
- Finishing downed enemies.
- Medic basics (that were outright removed from the tutorial for whatever reason).
- Repair stacking (EV repair is handled, but there’s no information about “repair conga” in the tutorial itself).
- Prioritizing targets.
Removing the whole Aura part was a terrible move in my honest opinion, it should have been added as well. As for the objective play part, maybe it should introduce the player to Bushwhacker as well. A few video tutorials has been added to the game and do speak more about the correct way to play DB, but if so few players played the tutorial, don’t expect them to take a minute of their lives clicking on those tutorial videos, even if those are really fun to watch.
The humor of the tutorial was really on point. It was a pleasure playing through it. The CDA announcer has been given some more character as well which is always good. Sadly, that tutorial almost feels like it fails even more at teaching players basic stuff than the last ones (who was less fun for sure, but more informative thanks to the big medic part).
The current atmosphere of the tutorial definitely needs to stay, but you really need a dedicated part for each starter merc in order to shine. Don’t forget to speak about how important finishing up enemies and attacking the right persons in the right situations is.
