The new dino zoo game Jurassic world evolution will have an update this friday which will introduce the indoraptor, carno,… So i believe they wanted to introduce everything together simultaniously with both games.
I do agree it is pretty reckless as you mentioned; they only went for epics so far and no additional details on anything above. Seeing an unique all of a sudden is quite strange. It would be cool to see commons rotate which aren’t available to everyone; raptors, einio,… Are pretty much available all the time. And we clearly are having major raptor discussions on the forum; hence my confusion of introducing even more raptors and making them even way more accessible while they are already plundering and pillaging their way up the ranking. There are more raptors available than there are decent counters available (especially more then 1)… 4 raptor teams are scary but… 6 raptor teams, a tachy and an indo? How are you even going to counter that. Indo already got a major mystical unannounced buff in which you can’t remove positive effects anymore (cloak - a week ago or smth my dilo was doing just fine recking indos, oh well GG wp immunity). Raptors are all cool 'n stuff but maybe we need more raptor counters before you buff the raptor meta even more.
Switch between the 4 region specific commons (not global spawning commons). Add more rares; also region specific, and in the weekend / wednesday maybe an epic to start legendary crafting so people can start ‘catching up’ with major incubator buyers in top 500s. Grinding gold for anything level +16/17 related will take ages anyway; gold cap isn’t helping.
I find it pretty disappointing to see uniques in top 100; they should be ‘unique’. If someone can insta-buy it in the first couple of weeks how ‘unique’ is it truly? Let alone release it in specific incubators and especially an event. Make them unique again.
