I’m level 10 with 11,000 coins, and 35 dinos waiting to evolve. Only 2 are on my time, but I’m waiting on 11 DNA to evolve my lvl 15 stegoceratops to 16 (takes 10,000 coins).
The struggle is real, but if it weren’t where would the challenge be, or the appeal to pay? Ludia has to make money some way. There is a bit of a grind but I’m finding if you are hitting enough supply drops and activating incubators constantly you can get what you need. Don’t waste coins on evolving dinos you won’t use on your team or in future hybrids. That number 35 of waiting dinos will most likely only keep going up for me.
