A question for people who claim that skill is more important in this game than luck; what game are you playing? Because it certainly isnt this one. The dinos you are able to raise to a sufficient level are determined by luck; which dinos spawn what dna you get from incubators, etc, etc. Random team rolls at the beginning of battles basically determine who is going to win, only the fact that the rolls are hidden deludes people into thinking otherwise. Matchups are often decided by lucky crits, and then of course there’s the fact that the vast majority of overused dinosaurs in the game make use of either stun or dodge; two very rng dependant mechanics.
This isnt a question of whether rng is good for a game or not, as that is a personal preference. I can personally tolerate a certain amount of rng in a game if it’s implemented correctly, i.e; it’s not obnoxiously overt and it is possible to compensate for bad luck with skill. That is simply not the case in this game; no amount of skilful play will compensate for being stunned 3 times in a row, for an indominus double-dodging for a cloak rampage, for your opponent’s last dinosaur being one neither of your remaining dinos can defeat even though you have such a dinosaur on your team that wasnt rolled. This is a question for people whose advice to people struggling in arena basically amounts to ‘get better at the game’, precisely how do you get better at getting lucky?
