First of all: Share that popcorn, both of you. :t_rex:

As for boosts… Had potential to be useful and a real game changer in a good way. Completely wasted it in favour of a lazy money grab.

Idea was good but the execution was wrong. Speed Boosts, shouldn’t even exist.

@Ludia_Developers if you read nothing else on this forum, read this thread.

They won’t. They’ve got sniper vision for only things that benefit players that weren’t intended. Like yesterday’s premium incubator for a lucky gamer segment. Want their attention? Make the title, “OMG, spinning a green drop at exactly 2:45 pm GMT causes it to drop 1M coins!” They’ll read that thread lickety split.

I love all the Boosts I can get.

I hate all the Boosts my opponents can get.

My opinion: the hp and attack ones arent too bad, but the speed ones definitely need to go. God let this game rest easy if the crit and armor ones get added in 1.9

Could you imagine the Rat with armor and crit boosts? It never dies, then it leaves and comes back in to BAM crit strike you into oblivion.

@Ned @Ludia_Developers if those two boosts get added, this game is done for, just so you guys know. The boosts have broke the entire arena, and we all complain daily about it

I’m not a fan personally.
I’d rather just have higher level dinos or incrementally better dinos with each patch.
Once everyone is max boosted they may as well be unboosted.
Everyone will be on level playing ground again and it locks players to dinos.
If there’s nothing worthwhile next patch dino wise… May as well boost current team to T8+

Boosts need to go. They have destroyed the well thought out balance

i understand why everyone is so upset. I am upset too. and the balance is gone, the decisions by ludia dont make sense most of the time and we come on here and complain and fight amongst ourselves.

the arena is stuffed. but the only real battle occuring is between Ludia and the players. We are fighting for a fair game, yet Ludia have no intention of providing a fair game. they are creating a game that drives players to spend.

even coming to this forum and complaining doesnt really bother them. it shows we are all still emotionally attached to the game and thus engaged.

engaged players will spend, sooner or later, or quite often. especially when they are distracted with a new update or new features. then the high dissipates and we get angry about being taken for a ride and this cycle goes on an on.

only when people stop playing, when the forums go quiet, will Ludia realise they pushed us all too far. but i doubt this will occur so i think we have to put up with making the best out of a deliberately broken game

Have I mentioned Ludia started out with casino games too?

opinion of boosts: @$#&£€@₩!&#$$#
this way filter doesn’t hide my post, hahaha.

  • ruined all hard work of developing creatures logics.
  • boosted only profits and community rage, plus rage for already polemical creatures like draco and thor.
  • it’s a false solution to a pseudo issue created by ludia itself.
  • it’s like cheat code to hack characters stats, that you pay for.

many suggestions we have posted after 1.7 like boosts proportional of creature rarity, or temporary boosts instead of permanent. etc, etc. but nothing changed. because even disliking boosts we keep playing because of game concept is way good, and some hope to things get fixed someday.

who knows…

Boost ruined the game.

I’m staying unboosted.

Elendil was a great king friend of the Eldar and Valar. Elendil fought against Sauron without status, but with the strength of his body. He certainly died, but Sauron (Ludia) was destroyed. He carries that name high and we fight like mother nature says. And how to watch a race of doped greyhounds, doped sportsmen. What is the taste of winning like this? Good day…

Boosts are by far the worst thing they added to JWA
Totally destroyed arena balance and killed the fun of it
Remove that crap and we will be happy like we never had before
Iff ludia is a litlle bit inteligent they will not add crit/armor boosts but we all know what will happens unfortunately they are not smart at all
A bunch of donkeys have better ideas then those guys

While I do like using boosts on my critters, the distribution was poorly executed. If they were just rewards and nothing else, I wonder if people would have been as angry about them as they are now. I think the main problem with boosts is that you can just buy them from the store, in packs of 25 or more recently, including with real money since you can buy HC that way fast.

I’ve acquired my boosts through only battle means (and I am not sure if the boosts we got back after the reset were more than we had or not, but it somehow ended up making my Kaprosuchus even stronger after I’ve reapplied them). All of the HC I’ve gained from in-game and daily reward link was never spent on any boost packs, but instead on rare / special scents.

Though an alternative to boosts would have been more interesting, such as gene splicing, to add stuff like spikes and armor but each addition will cost you some stat in return, which would be real customization that requires some strategy to use.
