I can see what you are saying @W1ckety, but surely they could do something that wouldn’t make players who have spent time, effort and money on building a creature so upset?
Like not creating op dinos in the first place. That would be a simple enough ask wouldn’t it? One would kind of hope by now they would know what balance is.
They could create new dinos that were worth having, that give us reasons to continue playing. Instead we get updates that buff dinos that don’t need buffs, and nerf others that are already useless. This creates understandable frustration for the players.
Actually Spinoconstrictor was used as a counter to Thor by some people. It’s wounding counter managed to put enough pressure on it and take down enough of its health to put it in an uncomfortable situation or even kill it. Even a lethal wound as a last resort meant Thor could die in 3 turns. Whilst bleeders aren’t an ideal choice they definitely provided some form of insurance in arenas where you can find a Mega Thor that’s faster than all your cunning creatures
Not saying people didn’t use it just saying its an odd choice given that spinocon needs exclusive DNA to create/level. Easier more cost effective options are out there why choose the one that doesn’t have that great a match up?
If your playing unboosted or have very few boosts to spare, you look for creatures that are good for multiple scenarios and dont require a massive amount of boosts to do the job. Spinocon was one of them. It takes a massive chunk out of most of what it fights or outright beats it while needing little to no boosts to do the job. And do it well enough that she can be a good bit underleveled compared to the opponent.
Is spinocon the best option? Probably not due to her wierd class and type casting. But she did work wonders against thors and had ok match ups against the unique tanks.
Since thor got that bleed resist, she isnt going to be a good counter to it. And since the rest of the match ups your try to use her for dont really go in her favor, why would you bother making her? An indirect nerf that makes not only spinocon, but some other bleeder-cunning/wild cards not worth the effort to get them.
I take it as you’re saying the game is never balanced. It never will be because of boosts. That’s why they keep buffing or nerfing creatures. I see both sides of the coin. If boosts were never introduced and all creatures were fairly balanced then the game would get stale real fast. I hate boosts but I think they are a necessary evil that we all have to deal with. Boosts do help keep everything in check. They do force a rebalance every so often because once a creature becomes too OP (because of boosts) then nerfing it will bring it back down to earth. Yeah, that would surely piss off a lot of people but it’s the choice we made at that moment to boost it. The one time boost reshuffle was ok but that should be it. No more. Ludia didn’t have to do that but they did. Keep the current penalty for moving a boost of 50%. Boosts are available everyday. It may take time to get them but they’re out there.
I was thinking this too, but I think tons of people are gonna skip this raid though because it just isn’t worth their time (daryx is such a niche situational creature people just won’t be willing to put in the time for get 15+ DNA a week)
