After a cumulative 50-ish hours over the course of the past 7 days that Alatreon's been released, I've gone through at least 60 attempts with very little to show for it. That's at least 7 hours a day for the past week going into the Gathering Hub and trying, and failing, over and over again, and it's been wearing me down mentally. And that's on top of my busy 35 hour work week. I'm starting to realize that this much effort for what amounts to something I'm simply not enjoying doesn't seem at all worth it.
And when I say that, I mean that doing all this for what ultimately boils down to a new weapon and a suit of armor is something I'm not considering as a decent trade-off for all the blows dealt to my ego over the course of a few days. Yes, Alatreon is a fantastic and completely feasible fight even solo (as shown by the daily speedruns being posted), and I've even managed to break both horns and clear 2 Judgements solo. But like I said, I'm not suuuuuper inclined to keep trying when it's taking a lot of time and mental fortitude just to beat the thing.
I've seen all the tips and tactics and tried a bunch myself, but at this point I've convinced myself that whatever I'm working towards wouldn't give me back whatever I spent on the way. The thrill of just winning isn't really an enticing prospect to me after all the failed attempts, either. At this point, if I won, Alatreon would be a trophy and that's kind of it. I'm not too interested in the rewards as I was the hunting experience, and I like to believe that I've gotten at least that much under my belt.
Another thing that nobody seems to have brought up anywhere is the amount of speedruns being posted in an attempt to inspire other hunters, and it's appreciated, but… Your average hunter isn't CantaPerMe. Not a lot of people are going to manage levels of success like that, and in contrast kind of deals the opposite effect being "wow, look at them go. no way in hell i'll manage that". It comes off as condescending for someone who's struggling even with help.
Yeah, I think I'm just gonna let this event slide for the time being and focus on other things. Things I actually would have a better time doing or are more pressing. Eventually I'll try the fight again like I did when Extremoth happened, but most likely I'll hold off until Frostfang comes out.
Ghost of Tsushima just recently released as well, and that looks fantastic. I'll probably be hanging out over there for a little bit.
Not good enough to solo, not fortunate enough with groups. I'd rather spend my time doing something that I enjoy.
