Seemingly, it may be time to rename the game from JWA to JWE for evasion. Most, not all, but most of the battles I am playing are decided by the worst thing possible, RNG of evasion. I think this is bad. Matches should be determined mainly by player choices with RNG elements thrown in, not mainly RNG with player choice elements thrown in.
There is no battle being had here…it is pure and simple coin tosses to see whose evasion would hold and then that person wins. This is not fun. I can draw some dinos on some paper and flip a coin and say one is the winner…that may be more fun than going through loading screens waiting for a battle only to find an outcome based on the RNG of evasion.
If you are removing definite rampages from the dinos being used to counter evasion, then its time to rework evasion again even though you just changed it. Imagine going up against a team of all evasion dinos…I would have to call Samsung to see about replacing the phone I just threw into the wall.
Having said that, evasion is not unbeatable. But, beating it boils down to having enough positive effect removal dinos or hoping and praying the RNG goes in your favor. Many of the effect removal dinos are not good enough in other situations to merit having on your team. This evasion move is defining meta based on RNG…that is not the right direction to take this game. Meta should be defined by the dino kits and how they are used, not the RNG of them working or not.
I voted for the change of evasion to be better, but that was prior to having more dinos using it like Indo G2 and Indom 2, and less dinos that could beat it.
There is a big difference in the unpredictable surprise of the old draco (surprise was up to the player when to use it, a player’s decision) vs the surprise of if a move I play or the op plays is even going to work (the surprise is based on RNG). This is the wrong type of unpredictable. The problem with the old draco was being able to leave regen cleanse and leave…its unpredictability was exciting…its not exciting rolling a dice to see if I win or not.
