If you were to ask someone what the meta was for 1.2, theyd say raptors. 1.3 and 1.4 would be stegodeus.
But 1.5? Ive heard all of these:
Its the tryko meta!
Its the bleeder meta!
Its the speed meta!
Its the indo meta!
This, along with my current arena experience (someone that battles dozens of times a day, top 500), tells me the meta is the healthiest its ever been.
Same for the leaderboards. Gone are the fixtures of 1-10 (mostly). No more do I see friends fight hard to get to 6k, then zoom to 7k in a few hours- putting them out of reach.
Now the leaders have to fight for it.
As they should.
Finally, wait times are better than theyve been.
Do we have a long way to go? Yeah. Still too many disconnects. Battles still take far too long to calculate (try lethal wounding each other sometime as spinos and tell me how long it takes the game to figure that out). Dmg calculation and speed calcs are still wrong. Etc etc etc.
But overall I am glad this was prioritized. It needed to be done. Kudos Ludia.
