One of the regular complaints on here (no not Draco … one of the others) is that everyone uses the same creatures and therefore battles are boring. But with the odd exception everyone who makes the complaint is using the same creatures as well - they are part of the very problem they are complaining about.
Is Ludia holding a gun to your head forcing you to embrace the current meta and go with the crowd? No. Ah - but they are, you argue - if you don’t use the strongest creatures you can’t compete! But for what exactly - season rewards? That “everyone” says aren’t worth it?
Pick a team you want to battle with - yes, you will take some pain initially but you will drop to a trophy count appropriate to your team where you can enjoy the battles. If you really want to keep in touch with the top, just mix it up a bit - I probably have 20+ creatures that could be on my team without sending it into freefall.
I’m bouncing around 5,000 trophies - is my Draco on the team? Nope. Tryko? Nope. Magna? Nope. They may well be tomorrow but so might Stygidaryx.
If everyone did this there would be a lot more “balance”/variety; but people won’t - and if they won’t then perhaps everyone just likes playing the same creatures after all …
