And this is what should have been fixed in my opinion - they shouldn't be super wary any more. Did you try it after today's update to see if this still the case?

Yes the same, unfortunately. Right now I can say they are still more scared animals in the whole Evergreen Hunting Reserve.

I can’t speak to the grizzlies yet, but I hunted Polar Bears yesterday and absolutely struggled, and today they are much much better. Can you run after them? No, but you can crouch and get close enough for a shot. I even got within bow range quite easily by comparison to the recent past. When you sneak close enough quietly, that’s when the polar bear would attack, but you couldn’t just run after them , and I wouldn’t expect to be able to either. Like I said that the polar bears, I’m gonna try the same tactics on grizzlies tonight, but polar bears are def fixed imo

Even previously it wasn't like that. In my crazy races through TT :mrgreen: In the past I saw many Grizzlies scared, but there were also many not scared and very aggressive. Now they are all like fleeing deers, no worse.

It’s been stated by myself and others many times that Polar Bears should be extremely aggressive, as they have no fear of humans since they view us as prey. The stalking mechanic has been broken for quite a while now, and it needs to be brought back and the PB aggression levels brought up.

About this I totally agree.

I would prefer to stalk them in some manner, instead of running after them and waiting for an attack to shoot them. I had to stalk the polar bears similar to the like I would a deer, only difference I found was when I got close they would be aggressive. I found polar bears very much like the brown bear. If you put a good stalk on them getting close for a shot wasn’t like it was in past weeks, I’m on grizzlies now, it polar bears imo are very good

Ok, but try to understand each other, if we look at realism, then these Grizzlies are too much scared and the Polar Bears if "feel" you, they attack mercilessy, 'cause you're food for them :mrgreen:

had an opposite experience; grizzly spooked from over 100m when walking; after that it spooked again at 100m when crouching. so still the same as before on my side

Idk about real life, but they are much better to hunt now than they were, both species, and the patch was successful imo, but be aware, running after them nonstop and expect them to hold their ground prob isn’t a good tactic no longer, treat them like a deer species when stalking, except they will def attack once they know your to close.

And here is the vid. This sow Grizzly came meandering my way across the water, so I got out in the open to where I knew she'd be able to see me as I crouched. You'll see that she gets to about 40m to me, give or take, and she does the new animations (alert). She then did exactly what I thought she would, she got into attack mode. The only reason she didn't charge was because she could not pathfind to me, across the water. I've seen them do this on numerous occasions, all the dangerous animals that attack actually. If they do not have a straight path to you, they break off the attack and flee. So as you can plainly see, they are fixed and are reacting as they should, some will flee, some will attack. Which was not the case before this patch, as every one of them would flee from great distances.

If you are still having this problem, I have no idea what to tell you then.
