Bugs, OP Dinos, Excessive Nerfs, Unneeded Nerfs, No boost Reset, Constant Powercreep, Bad Pvp, Horribly long and Annoying Raids, all of these issues have been discussed and everyone knows most of them by now. However, I feel there’s a problem that keeps getting glossed over every Update, but constantly gets worse: The overabundance of Strong Cunnings
Back in 2.7
Since 2.7, there have been 4 Updates that have dropped. All four of which, along with 2.7, have gotten mostly Cunning, or Part Cunning Creatures in them, and they’re oppressing the Fierce dinos, which are the least represented and the worst of the three Main Classes. Here are a couple of screen shots indicating which dinos are Cunning, and which ones aren’t. Those who are Part Cunning, Cunning, or have Cunning features will be marked with a Red Checkmark.
See the issue here? So many dinos with Cunning in them, yet so little representation of the other classes. Plus, a lot of these Cunnings marked are quite good, and some are viable in the meta. There are so few dinos that are of Pure Resilient or Fierce. Phorex? Fierce CUNNING. Parasauthops? Resilient CUNNING. (Though it should be a Wildcard) Rinchicyon? Fierce CUNNING. ALL of 2.9? CUNNING. With so many Cunnings and few Pure Fierce, the Fierce getting pushed out of the Meta, leaving only Cunnings, Resilients, and Wildcards to dominate. Plus, not only that, but most Fierce are pretty underwhelming unless they are part of another Class. AND there are so few options to resort to when it comes to Chompers. Only Thor and Mortem work as Big Damage Dealers. (Indot is also a Big Damage Dealer, but relies on the Counter and Cloak, so not just pure damage.) We need more Fierce to be introduced, strong and BALANCED PURE FIERCE to help diverse the meta and help represent the Fierce Class. Please.
