My problem with the game at the moment is, that I do not know if there is any long time strategy.
For years I thought the purpose of the game is to get and evolve as many dinos as possible and I did this for more than two years. At some point events became almost impossible for me to win. I accepted this as long as the ‘exit battle bug’ was active but this was not much fun.
After it was removed I had to make a decision and with help from @Sionsith I decided to sell my lvl 30 Indoraptor and almost all of my stronger lvl 40 hybrids.
From that point on I only failed in one event, the one were Tyrannosaurus played a key role. Tournaments are no problem for me too.
I now have again 5 lvl 10 Indoraptors, a couple of lvl 10 and lvl 20 strong hybrids and many many lvl 40 VIPs.
From time to time I ask myself now what to do.
Leaving everything as it is would be boring.
I could try to make my team stronger at a very low pace, but why should I do this?
Only to see how a lvl 40 Gorgosuchus looks like? I did this for it and many others and it ruined my lineup.
There would be absolutely no benefit for me in events or tournaments in doing so.
Because legendary hybrids have a ridiculous cooldown I would need many of them to stay as competitive as I am at the moment.
Worse would be that all my VIPs, which are still the spine of my team, would become more and more useless.
I absolutely do not understand what the strategy behind all this is. Creating a game with the possibility to collect and evolve dinos and then punish a player who does so.
If I should give an advice to a new player I would tell him to never evolve a VIP beyond lvl 20, never evolve a legendary hybrid beyond lvl 10 or 20 max and, if he wants to hatch an Indoraptor keep it at lvl 1.
But then again the questions remains. What is the purpose of this game?
It can’t be that a relatively new player with a weak lineup compared to an experienced player can have more success in this game at the end.
Apologies for my bumpy English.
