I’m genuinely baffled by this decision, as both a longtime player and VIP member. Would it not make more sense to either make Amber more easily available if the costs are so high, and/or significantly reduce the costs so that they’re at least half the price tag of the DNA cost?
Because otherwise, I don’t see the point, and I already didn’t feel much compelled to complete the Boss only events before and tbh I still don’t feel any real desire to do them.
No you only need 1 boss to compete in boss battles . The boss vs boss can be tricky with 1 boss but it’s possible.
Those creatures can no longer be unlocked since the shuffle . If you don’t have the unlock yet you can not buy them with dna for the foreseeable future.
No the amber isn’t worth it. It’s pretty useless for endgamers and too difficult to acquire for newcomers.
I liked the boss vs boss battles before last update. They gave me forever locked creatures plus some dna. It was kinda fun when it was new .
Now i don’t bother. The fun has been lowered with time. May be once in a while i play the strike team but no battlefield domination anymore.
I kinda doubt that, at least nowadays since the opponent AI will put points into their special abilities if it means getting ahead. Maybe before the update, and even then I can’t imagine anything weaker than a lvl 30 Omega 09 or Salamander has a legitimate shot at it.
The boss v boss is dependent on your boss level and number.
If you have 1 boss you face 1 boss of appropriate level. When boss v boss first came i had 2 boss of lv31 and lv5/6. I used to face 2 bosses with levels between 10-25.
I agree with this, but amber isn’t THAT useless for low lvls. Carnoraptor can be a very good hybrid, followed by dime shybrid which helps them increase their lineup, but pyro is a hard part to get. Carno can be unlocked, so amber might be good for lower levels. Idk tho
Even then, no. The amount of Amber you need is ridiculous. If you need all 8 copies of Pyro then thats 88,000 amber. IIRC you can get a max of 750 amber from the final league of boss vs boss battles. That’s 118 times you need to win amber as the prize. Since it only has a 40% chance, that’s roughly 188 battles. Now times that by how long it takes to finish a battle, and now the grind is so excruciating it’s not even worth it.
It’s a route to obtain copies, but tbh I’d rather invest my time elsewhere and just wait an eternity for an unlock to come around…
No, 750 is from boss waves final stage, from boss v boss you can get 9500 nearly every day with the 2 battles one, meaning it may be good for low levels still.
And that’s an 80% chance, and with one boss that low levels have, omega, the whole event that’s 2 battles (and needs 2 battles to unlock) that’s about like 5 min, and for 88k, that’s like 9 battles, 45 min that’s spread out in a few days, meaning you can get max pyro in like a week.
If you are a post-reshuffle player, Amber may be the best way to buy those permanently lock creatures. On the other hand, grinding for Amber costs a lot of Dinobucks, so are you really saving anything versus buying the creatures with Dinobucks? I don’t know. @Sionsith 's analysis back in November suggests not
But the rewards have been tweaked since then, so his math may or may not still apply.
If you have Amber and need to buy one of those creatures, it saves DNA for more expensive purchases, so there’s that.
At some point hybrids and tournament legendaries may become available in the Amber market. While that may not make grinding for Amber worth it, it may open up a good place to spend what you do aquire
for me, it was impossible to have a single copy, I had to wait millions of years and climb mountains and no I’m kidding of course it was until it was super hard to have a copy because at every time I opened a package I got an unayasaur or a shunosaur!
I don’t think there’s a need to make so many threads at a stretch to highlight minor subjects such as these. I’d recommend making a single thread to post all queries, or posting them in appropriate existing threads (such as off topic).
