Hey there all,
Just wanted to share something so it can be understood and hopefully settle all the angry posts happening so often lately. I’ve been very fortunate to never have complained about nerfs or buffs for one main reason: this game is better than the others I’m playing. Now back to the topic.
Ludia collects stats on battles via bots and usage by users I’m sure. No decision is made on impulse. Complaining may seem to work at first but it was inevitable. So hear me out and tell me what you think or what else we can add so it can be a reference for the newcomers ready to bite some heads off.
When does a buff occur?
•No one uses a particular Dino and it should be based on its status (unique, legendary, etc)
•Too many counters or dinos can wipe it out in the arena (in two moves?)
•Stats of losses in battles exceeds wins (not due to user related errors)
•Textbook reference based predatory/superior level
•Lvl of Dino fares worse than its counterparts at lower lvl or parent hybrid
When does a nerf occur?
•When everyone uses the same Dino because it happens to be the “OP” of the season/meta
•Dino can easily take out an entire team (i.e. wiping out another Dino in 2 turns)
•Stats of wins in battles exceeds losses
•Lvl of Dino fares too well against those of higher level or its offspring
My advice is to work on your team overall but strategize (better to have multiple dinos of capable levels rather than keep chasing that OP Dino just to start all over with the next updates). More usage of a single Dino means more angry eyes, wins/losses stats, so changes are bound to happen. There will always be a shift in power to balance out the dinos so that there can be some diversity in usage. This game isn’t about one or two OP dinos even though it appears like it at times. It takes time to rework the stats but with more battles and players in time I’m sure there will be a Dino everyone likes of his/her own and not because it is the must have of the season or meta. In regards to the RNG, well it’s RNG. I know this is a sensitive topic so I’ll leave it at that.
What do you all think? I am not defending or supporting any positions as I try to stay neutral so let’s keep it that way below please.
