Patch 2.1 wasn’t perfect by any means (yesterday was an absolute mess in terms of deployment, patch notes discrepancies, and bugs) but as those are being fixed over the next couple of days, I’ve been thinking: is this the most balanced the arena has been in a long time?
With Maxima nerfed (a bit too hard) and a few other creatures re-balanced, there doesn’t seem to be anything that is blatantly overpowered. There are still a lot of strong creatures (Tryko, Tenrex, Magna, Pho, etc.) but I don’t see anything currently that is actually over-powered. Maybe some things will come into the meta, but for now it appears we may finally have an arena meta that is free from broken monsters.
(Note I say this in terms of arena from high library to shores. Obviously below that Nitro Thors and anything with lots of boosts will be strong.)
The arena isn’t perfectly balanced, not by a long shot, but it feels better than it has in months.
