Here’s the basics of why you got so owned so hard:

Difficulty settings are a level relative to yourself and the minimum number of people to spawn. It doesn’t matter if you’ve set yourself to x1, if you go into a mission with 8 people, it’ll spawn for 8 people. Which means 1 spawn of Longbow is 2 warden bosses, 4-5 lieutenants, and 6-10 minions.

When an ambush spawns, they always know where you are and will run directly there to try and kill you. This makes it a bit hard for, say, stalkers to solo ambush-heavy missions.

At various points in your progression through a mayhem mission map, an ambush of Longbow will show up to dispense justice with their guns. There can be multiple Longbow ambushes in a single mayhem mission, and they will all pursue you forever. Sometimes people will just run to the bank ahead of ambushes and use the entrance as a convenient kill box. But if you get four ambushes on you and you can’t deal, well, all 8 bosses, 20 lieutenants, and 40 minions will be with you forever.

As far as time in mayhems goes: dropping a set of cops is +30 seconds for resisting arrest. You also get +30 seconds when a Longbow ambush shows up. Breaking individual things, like cars and crates and dumpsters and cardboard boxes, will pay out in bonus time once per type of object, but the number of things you need to break to get that bonus increases with the size of your team. Some maps might not have enough of some things to actually give the bonus to an 8-person team.

As far as the demon powerset goes, turning most of the summon SFX blackish will be generally less obtrusive, but their tints are all positive colors, not variable-intensity. (also, demons are kind of big and have somewhat obnoxious idle noises)

grrr i remembered last night around 10pm, need better front page placement, like something in top right doesn’t have to be big just a tonight at 8 blurb kinda thing, and when there is no stream don’t display, had i been reminded yesterday i would have planned to be there live like last time, “i’m a busy guy got stuff to do” :) i know you can go here and there or whatever but i don’t. Just throwing it out there as i’m sure i’m not alone.

Mayhem missions are the best missions… and the best mayhem missions are the ones that go terribly wrong.

We had a static villain team and at one point it became our modus operandi to get on the mayhem map and once we knew everyone was loaded we would scatter across the map at top speed to aggro every single longbow unit on the map and then quickly gather in the lobby of the bank where we’d unload every trap and debuff patch possible and then simply start unloading AOEs like it was a Mothership Raid. The Longbow effectively walked into a woodchipper. Our favorite was the Talos Island bank. :)

I love those missions, especially with MM pets as they go nuts on the vault door! So good that we can talk about this game in 2019!
