I played this game when it first came out, and one thing bothered me at that point. I noticed raptors were dominating the game (Hence the Raptor-Meta.)
I’m not sure why I deleted the game, or why I thought about it earlier this year, but even after my return, after I reached a mid-point, I realized two creatures were ruling the game, Procerathomimus and Indoraptor Gen 2.
Two Patches later, Procerathomimus were nerfed into oblivion and Indoraptor Gen 2 was seen less and less, even though it was still a good cunning creature. However, two creatures I have commonly faced for no apparent reason were Trykosaurus and that dreaded Ardentismaxima who I couldn’t unlock for weeks because I didn’t dart it.
Anyway, I came to notice why I was always beating them: I always had Thylacotator and Alloraptor whenever I faced one of the two. Then it hit me.I was there for 2 past metas. But now a new one began. Why does this happen?
Why can’t every creature play a part, and everyone’s team not just have the same dinos over and over on every team? You have a select few cunning creatures, yet the best are Magna and Zorion. Utarinex to an extent. But why shouldn’t Erlikospyx be good for something? Why can’t Erlidom be useful? Why can’t Indo at least have a role instead of being your quickly replaced starter unique?
Basically, can’t everything have a place and be special instead of 2-6 creatures dominating the game? Is it REALLY fun to face the exact same creatures instead of facing opponents with different preferences and playstyles?
I know it’s not happening, but if we had TRUE balance the game would be SO much better.
