This latest update was overall pretty great in terms of buffs and nerfs. The SS overhaul was a breath of fresh air in my opinion. Both Tryko and mimus got the buffs and nerfs they deserved. I’d argue draco2 was the only “what were you thinking Ludia" change. But that’s an entirely different topic…
Overall, the changes brought more balance to the game.
However Magnapyritor was just lost and forgotten. It didn’t receive a buff or nerf, but because of this neglect is in far worse shape than it was in 1.4. Considering the work and money it takes to level this guy up with how rare imitator dna is, you’d think this guy would be tyrant status. There are a number of dinos now that straight up destroy magna. Spinotasuchus, Erlidominus, Dilracheirus, Monomimus (even after losing all the HP) and indoraptor just to name a few.
His health is so low and is slower than most of these relevant dinos that it’s extremely hard to find a niche for him. These are two solutions that I suggest.
Option A) Keep his health and damage where it’s at, but boost his speed to 130. He’d still be incredibly vulnerable, but being 130 would make that compromise a bit more fair.
Option B) Boost his speed to 129 so he matches the other 129 meta dinos, and also increase his health a couple hundred HP so he can compete a bit better.
Be it one of these two suggestions or something else entirely, something needs to be done.
