One of my favorite Dino.
It has been nearly a year since the Dinosaur of the Day discussions started and I thought it might be nice to slowly revisit them and see how things have changed.

Greater Stunning Impact.
Swap in Stunning Strike.
Since release Monostegotops has seen a drop in health and a complete reshuffle of abilities. At the time I really liked this hybrid and it was one of my favourites when I used them. Since the change to ceratopsians, I find I’m not a fan anymore. This used to be a good nullifier and counter type dinosaur. Although it used to be annoying, without a nullification ability I think she has now become a lot less useful which is a shame. I still see her from time to time in the Arena but not as frequent as she used to be.
What are your thoughts on Monostegotops in the modern meta?
Monostego is more an annoying dino, sad if he keeps his stats and Nullifying impact he’ll be good against Indo gen2
It took me nearly a year from Monosteg’s release to actually gather enough ingredients and make it. But once I created it, I decided to give it a go. Man, it did not disappoint. I was so happy, so I brought it up to team level. And when boosts came around, I boosted her up to become a monster.
But then the rework came around not too long afterwards. I was so mad, cause it seemed that I did all this work on a legendary that has actual power in the Arena just went down the drain, and it didn’t matter what I felt about it.
I still use it, but I’m sad to say that it is more of a… Pity usage? Or maybe frustration. I mean, before the rework, it was actually my highest leveled dino at the time. I guess I just felt that it didn’t feel right to put all that coin back in the deck unused. So I boosted Monosteg again. The attack is left to be strongly desired, but I think that I’ve somewhat adapted to the moveset.
I’m afraid my post a few months ago in the “Opinions Of: Monostegotops” thread jynxed her! (Opinions of: Monostegotops). Before she was indeed nerfed into oblivion she was one of my favorites with her nullifying ability. I boosted her and used her often with great success. I had her up to level 27 before the nerf hit. I’m still leveling her just in case she’s ever returned to her former glory as a nullifier in addition to distraction and stun. She now level 28.
Real shame. I’ve loved monostego for a long time… it’s a shame it got nerfed for no reason.
Possibly it got the nerf hammer due to Income Raptor. It would have been a great counter and most users already had one at a reasonably high enough level to deal with it. Users were less likely to spend on Income Raptor if everyone already had the counter to it.
Monolophosaurus never spawned around work or home, so I was very excited to finally get enough of its DNA in order to make a team-level Monostegotops (this is WAY after the Monomimus nerf, mind you, so I felt completely safe using the component DNA for Mono-tops), only to have the Ceratopsian family get their “Dig-In” overhaul. Even though I hear good things about its new kit, the old one was just so much fun to play bc it felt like it would win match-ups that it probably had no place winning - that said, the previous statement is likely why it got down-tuned so much!
