I haven’t read about the boost reset (no notice showed up in the game) so today I’ve faced the arena with the ordinary grim determination to minimize impact on my trophies.
It has been a total failure.
I’ve lost 11 battles in sequence, something never happened before, even in the worst arena crisis, not realizing that my dinos have been totally reset and so they were no more as I have hardly shaped them for months.
Worst, all 11 battles were against teams composed by lvl 23-25 dinos, while mine are basically 17-20.
In addition, I’ve faced practically only Thors, Tragodistis, Diloracheiros and Indoraptor.
I’m in the Lockwood arena.
In addition, they have dodged, stunned and obtained critical hits with almost 100% efficacy (a Tragodistis obtained 5 crits in sequence among counterattacks and ordinary attacks, wiping out my team).
Of course I never dodged anything and stunned 2 times on 11-12 attempts.
It seems that this game is simply not able to be fair or balanced in any way.
I’ve accepted it in the past many times, I had my moments of glory, including a surprising cavalcade through 3 battle arenas against stronger opponents, but now I have not the energies to stand another who-knows-how-long period of totally unbalanced play and probable utter defeat.
I saw they have re-introduced the possibility to play against IA if no opponent is available, and what? I have to face an IA team of lvl 24 best dinos around (Erlikodominus + Utarinex + Magna)?
Are you serious?
I have many boost points back, of course, but now it costs 100 pts to obtain a minimum increase in a stat.
How I am supposed to win something now?
I’m sorry to say, but I think I will not play the arena any more.
Just too tired of all this.
I care not about trophies, I just played the arena daily to gain a handful of boost points I have no other way to obtain. But the effort is not worth the price.
Also I hope arena battles will not be included anymore among daily missions.
