We have had movie weeks far more than can be realistically justified. They are almost entirely boring with minimal variety. The only saving grace to them is when we get one of them that has exclusive DNA like Baryonyx G2 (which I was thankful for but one creature in a FULL WEEK is hardly worth the excitement).
I clearly, CLEARLY do not have the numbers Ludia does but something is gnawing at the back of my head and saying, ‘I don’t really think we’re getting a huge influx of new players that don’t have much of any of the base starting DNA that is comparable to people who have been playing for any significant amount of time’.
With each new creature update, we get our hopes up and think we might have a chance at making something team-level in any kind of reasonable time frame so MAYBE the ever-constant boost problem is minimized (that is, not having nearly enough to break minimal thresholds on a full compliment of our respective teams to make them even worth using, given the competition).
Then with that we are, time and again, proven wrong as we wind up in this situation where even the sanctuaries are pitifully underwhelming for just how long it takes to get any kind of measurable progress because YOU, Ludia, won’t actually provide the DNA in any considerable measure.
I understand; really, I do! We’re not supposed to be running around with a super-hybrid at level 30 under a month after a new creature is patched into the game. That is perfectly sound reasoning. What isn’t, though, is having any hard DNA to come across be locked away behind event weeks that are so infrequent that they’re practically in the running to be as bad as the similar situation with the whole ‘it took me two bloody years of playing to get a 30 Magnapyritor!!!1!111!!!’
I mean, would it kill you to at least have a few weeks thrown in where, for example’s sake, be creatures that…say, I don’t know…only spawn in Dawn/Dusk hours? For crying out loud, even with that, it’s sad that when Titanoboa G2 was on the docket, there were more event-specific spawns for that than I’ve seen TO THIS DAY in the gosh-darn wild since you put them into the game!
I am not claiming to know what a solid balance of events is but what you’re doing right now for how rare it is to have a, quote on quote, “good” week? You’re not even on the same plane of reality the rest of us are and it’s incredulously frustrating that we cannot actually expect y’all to realize that on your own.
So, please, actually stop and think about these events moving forward. Stop it with the movie weeks, ESPECIALLY.
