Part of the 1.6 announcements was. Migration and World Balancing
- In the previous update, we started to take into consideration the value of each creature when doing the world balancing. In this update, we also considered the value of the hybrids that can be created from them.
- As usual, we welcome your feedback on this subject in our forums!
After 1.5 L2 was still not a bad zone to be in for end game hybrid making. You could get Dracorex generation 2, Gorgosaurus, Dracorex, Tenontosaurus, Ouranosaurus, Pyroraptor, and a hybrid of Stegaceratops. You are inundated with Einosaurus.
What 1.6 did. Dracorex Gen 2 was nerfed. Utarinex was a combination of Utasinoraptor with Dracorex and was considered one of the top dinosaurs. Tenontosaurus has made himself scarce and is his place is more Diplocaulcus Gen 2. Then there is of course Einosaurus, whose upgrade with Sarcorixis is not an upgrade with a loss of 5% armor for rarely used skills.
It appears the megalosuchus path way is now bottlenecked for the use of the Gorgosuchus DNA because Megalosaurus is a park rare now and left Area 1. (Edit: After some have said Megalosaurus was gone, it has now shown back up in Area 1. ) On another note Megalosuchus is outclassed and there is a better use for Kaprosuchus DNA.
So that leaves Pyroraptor and Ouranosaurus,
Pyroraptor is bottlenecked by the arena exclusive Irritator DNA… but it does lead to MagnaPyritor which appears upgraded.
Well at least L2 still has Ouranosaurus… I hope.
