With two major updates since April, the meta now looks very different compared to my first post back in January. Below are the Top 100 team compositions on June 23rd compared to April:
Draco, Thor, Dio and Magna have continued to fall out of favour and have now almost completely disappeared from the leaderboard. Tryko, once the queen of the area is also increasingly scarce as are Tenrex and Spyx.
In their place are some fresh additions with an improved Skoona alongside the new Scorpius Gen3 and CompyC all featuring regularly. Smilonemys, once considered too weak, has risen like a phoenix and now features on nearly half of teams.
The elephant in the room (aside from me) though, is the apex class and the dominance they have acquired now that their levels have increased. Remarkably, the top 6 is the only place you won’t find the main 3 apexes on the same team. Gorgotrebax is struggling though, with only 6 teams running it, however this may change as levels grow.
Combined with Monolorhino and Grypo, the top 5 appear together in 65% of all teams, meaning there are very spots up for grabs for the other 259 creatures in the game.
However, it’s worth noting that the top 10 dinos back in January accounted for 654 out of the overall 800 creatures on teams. And now, with the apex setting up a permanent camp in teams? Now the top 10 account for 653 of the total 800 creatures. So the variety of creatures is actually similar, albeit with a highly-concentrated top 4.
So, how does the arena feel when compared to April or January? Will new creatures like Scorpius G3 and CompyC see their presence grow further and will any of the existing apex be pushed out as a result?
