I don’t know why Ludia insist on nerfing her (maybe she’s the new Monomimus?), but it feels as though whoever keeps making that decision keeps overlooking several factors, many of which have come into play since the addition of raid bosses.
- By Ludia’s own words, Carnotarkus should be very powerful.
The harder a creature is to obtain, the better it will be compared to other creatures of the same rarity.
Carnotaurus - Global Friday
Purussaurus - Park / Fishing only
Wuerhosaurus - EVENT ONLY
Not one of the ingredients is a global, always available dino. All 3 of these rare dinos require more effort to be put in. Compare this to, say, Monolometrodon who currently requires an anytime, anywhere common plus a zone all day common - yet somehow, Monolo is much more powerful than Carnotarkus.
Carnotarkus is a super hybrid.
These are again supposed to be the best of the best in their rarity. Sarcorixis is a good example of a powerful super hybrid, as is Thyla. Both are arguably better than this legendary superhybrid.
Ludia added rend resistance.
I absolutely detest it in all honesty and now that I’ve had time to watch it in action, I still hate it. But it’s there, and it’s absolutely decreased Carnotarkus’s worth, made even worse by the fact that so many rend resistant dinos already had distraction techniques. She needs a buff to compensate for this.
Purutaurus isn’t that much worse than she is!
With a cleansing strike that can remove DoT, vulnerable or speed decreases, more health plus the “No Escape” ability, it’s not much of an upgrade when you consider that Wuerho is now exclusive.
So there we go, by keeping Carnotarkus at this strength Ludia are pretty much going against everything that’s they’ve said (granted, this isn’t the first time, but I like to think that they have fixed most of these problems eventually).
