Playing unique’s on my primary account lacks the ability to use the strategy I use on my 2nd account with all the new creatures. The unique’s and older creatures just don’t have the swap in abilities as a way to get an edge on an opponent to not let them take out your current creature.
I played both accounts today and both me and my opponent on my 2nd account each used strategic swap-ins/swap outs as a way to try to win in the mid arena with the newer creatures. My primary account with unique’s, was just fastest dino’s win. Mine were faster and I won.
2nd account, I used strategy to take out my opponents Procera by anticipating they would use a specific moves. They used instant distraction and I used the basic cleans distraction to get a full hit. It took my dino out the next hit but I had it low enough to get it the next dino. I did win but not till after they swapped in Thylacotator with instant distraction on a small finish off hit and got it with a big hit the next move. It was a good game.
The high, high players miss out on these newer creatures. The unique’s are more just a fast and hard hitting back and forth. They have hit and runs but bad strategy if your not taking out your opponent dino on the hit -n- run giving your opponent a free hit. Some of these swap in creatures can dodge or mitigate the damage if not stun on entry to stop the damage completely.
On my primary account, my mindset is who to put out first as the sacrificial lamb to be taken out by a rat leaving my fast-fast Thor or Utasino or Erlidom as the rat exterminator as my 2nd choice, if my opponent has a rat… they all do but I get lucky when they don’t have it handy and can enjoy a real match.
I don’t go into battle on my 2nd account with a defensive mindset that I need to prepare to have to defend myself from any certain creatures. The cards flip and I make a quick decision what to use first leaving a good swap in creature for my 2nd or 3rd creature and go from there. My first creature generally has a hit and run on it’s 2nd move if I have one of them available such as the “Terror Bird” Phorasaura. If my opponent doesn’t have slow or distraction, their first creature is doomed on my 2nd move of hit and run. I then bring it back as a finisher.
I don’t play much on my primary account but I play much more on my 2nd account in the mid arenas with all the new creatures for the fun strategic battles. They really need to give the old unique’s and even the old legendary’s swap in abilities.
