There has been an issue with players facing much stronger or weaker opponents in the arena. This has been addressed with a new matchmaking system.

Players who have lost 500 or more trophies will receive AI battles that will reward or take away trophies until they have regained their footing in the arena.

I feel like imperatosuchus was gutted too hard. You nerfed half it’s moveset and the creature itself. Probably do one or the other

Put it’s health back to 4650 and kept the bleed resistance. Should I do anything to bask to make up for the nerf it got or is imperato ok now?

This update addresses quite a lot of issues with the current game, which I like. Lots of creatures toned down to make them balanced, and the addition of 3 new rare hybrids is something the game really needs. My one problem with it is that I feel like Albertocevia was nerfed a bit too hard. It lacks the huge damage output it had before, which makes it worse than Andrewtops. Maybe bring the damage back up in exchange for lower speed, and bring back a non-damaging non-cleansing version of the counter?

I guess Acevia should be better than andrewtops, I’ll fix that real quick

I think 1500 damage should be the most it will have, but yeah hopefully this keeps it usable without being the total monster it is right now.

Your fan update is better than a lot of the official updates which says a lot about the game. You put great care in making the creatures balanced and added some canon creatures like cerato which people have been asking for for years.
Good job

Imo you should be able to get coins from these battles, though I do understand it would maybe be to easy to farm coins as JWA’s AIs suck.

I was debating whether or not to keep the coin reward for AI battles, and honestly there’s good points on either side. Players should be more inclined to progress through the arena and earn better rewards, but at the same time that can be very difficult and frustrating right now.

Quick question. Just, why?

1 Like

Because Determined Strike is way too strong

2 Likes

I suppose there aren’t that many creatures that have resistances to either but you say that like all those abilities that can cleanse all negative affects aren’t enough to mitigate those combined effects.

It’s not that Determined Strike is overpowered (though it is really strong), it’s more about the fact that it outclasses Daring Strike and Heavy Strike. Heavy Strike cleanses 2 effects, removes 1 effect, and bypasses armor, Daring Strike cleanses 2 effects, bypasses armor, and distracts, but Determined Strike cleanses 2 effects, removes 2 effects (3 if counting crit), distracts, reduces crit chance, and applies vulnerability, despite Daring Strike not removing effects and Heavy Strike not applying vulnerability.

What’s makes this all the more head scratching is that both Daring and Determined came out at the same time and yet Determined carries both effects of Resilient and Cunning Strike except with Precise instead of removing Dodge and Cloak. So what happened behind the scenes to leave both Daring and Heavy to be so half completed would be a million dollar question here.
