This weekends tourney is a skill based one with the best creatures other than apex, and for me it sucks.
Is it because the skill tourney formula is so stale now?
Or that I’ll never win a speed tie?
Or that the predictability of a swap in is just so meh?
I don’t know, but I was kind of looking forward to this one as I thought it would take me back to the pre boost days. A time of pure skill rather than who has the most boosts. Well I’m here to say something that I never thought I would be saying - I think the battling is crap without boosts!
I was so vociferous with my condemnation of boosts when they were added, but I honestly think I was wrong. I would have stopped playing ages ago if boosts weren’t a thing. How long can exactly the same creatures with exactly the same moves, speed, attack and defence keep you stimulated? About ten minutes for me with this tourney is my answer. As dull as dishwater, I can’t remember the last time I was this bored with a tourney. Well actually I can, it was the last skill tourney! But that wasn’t t quite so boring as it was using less used creatures I suppose.
So I will say it, boosts were the best thing Ludia ever did for this game. They aren’t perfect, but I take back everything bad I ever said about them.
