Ludias own current strategy isnt beneficial to them thats why this game is so far down on too grossibg charts.
The whales in this game have 1.6 top dinos at level cap or close to it with the exception of magna for some. But a few have it at cap too. Which means the coins they currently have accumulated are will continue to accumulate dont have to be spent on anything and can be saved for leveling next patchs top dinos
Unless they decided to work on a side project they have little to spend coins on. With more viabale dinos we could develop a meta like we do now and and the ability to develop a counter meta teams… and if were really lucky a team that beats the counter meta teams but loses to the original meta team.
Thats what a healthy meta would be… and we would need 30-40 viable dinos to get there.
Stuff like what the op is suggesting and stuff like team synergy bonuses would be a great way to help get us their.
Team synergy bonuses is something I think could be real cool. Say 1x counter attack synergy where if your whole team is 1x counter attackers they gain 10% health… 15% damage reduction 15% counter attack bonuses.
Pretty powerful stuff… but the flip side is do to the random nature of team selection youd have to be running 8 1x counter attackers.
This allows you to get a diverse meta without addressing the unique vs everything else power levels. It would need to be done to a point that team bonus are on a equal level of the current meta teams. This way teams of full uniques are still an option. Uniques could also add to their team set bonuses to give more incentives to make them rather then just power creep. Say having indo on a team of evasive stance dinos increases chance to dodge to 60%. While having magna on a team of immunes gives every dino a swap in nullify effect. When magna or indo dies during the battle all other team members lose the unique bonuses.
Add the ops idea along with mine and we have a ton of different team building options… how many more coins would we need to be able to play with all these bonuses.
