Lol, when I picked up Freedom Unite (my first MH game...amazing game, I've clearly been missing out) I was wondering about this too. Yeah, they probably do this to lighten the network load, and it seems later in the game it doesn't really impact the game as much when you are hunting elders or 2 large monsters anyway since the lesser monsters don't spawn often if at all anyway...and if anything it makes for some amusing moments...completely missing on a swing and saving your buddy's life on his screen, or my fav, rapid firing a monster on your screen that isn't there on your friend's and inadvertently lighting them up...good stuff!
Heya guys, so I recently caught this guy on YouTube who roasts summer movies...I'm not going to lie, its pretty damn funny. Seems new, but so far so good, though headsup, it may seem a bit offensive...heck, the name of his series is "I'm Not F---ing Around". Anyway, thought I'd share with ya, its pretty good stuff! Later!
