This is just a small thing that I think should be changed, but I think it would be nice to see.
After placing a hugger trap down, the hive will be notified when a marine activates one, just like with acid traps. This is nice and all, but the hive has no way of telling whether the trap actually hugged a marine.
My suggested change is to let the hive know if the hugger from the hugger trap actually manages to facehug a marine. I don’t think this would impact balance all too much, but I think it would be really nice to know whether or not my traps are actually doing anything to help or if they are just getting shot out.
As a side note, I’ve heard the argument that this wouldn’t make sense cause huggers aren’t part of the hivemind or whatever, but the game already notifies the hive when a *player * hugger hugs a marine, so I don’t see why that wouldn’t also be the case with trap huggers.
