So as promised, here’s a topic for discussing the dilemma of when to create the Indoraptor. For tournament plan, we know that having a deep bench of Jurassics is a key to success, and they can be around VIP level 20’s and work in Dominator pretty well. Those run about a ferocity of 4400. Once you are able to start leveling those up higher, and add in some of the s-hybrids and tournament hybrids, you’ll have ferocities approaching (and exceeding) 6K.
Problem is, the Indorator even at just level 1 has a ferocity of 9K. That’s a pretty serious bump up to be dealt with, basically going from level 30 VIPs and/or legendary hybrids to level 40s. Besides the reduction in numbers, it takes the cooldowns on VIPs from times that allow for 2-3 uses a day, to 1 or maybe 2 (for the glass cannons). Legendary hybrids can go from 1 day to 2 day CDs. Tournament hybrids will typically need lvl 20 or better to compete… going from a CD that allows for 2 uses a day to at best 1 turn a day.
So the question becomes, how many dinos at these kinds of levels do you need to deal with the impact adding a bunch of Indoraptors will have? I can currently make 9 indos and soon will be able to make 10… but have nothing higher than a level 10 Yudon, which is a ferocity of 6260… but I have a pretty deep bench near that level, at least 5-6 pages all 6K or above. I would LOVE to get those Indoraptors made and get to play with them especially in tournaments… but the issue is the daily PvE events (and infinity level) so the goal would be to leave as many of my Jurassics at the tournament level as possible, while leveling up what’s needed to deal with the difficulty increase in PvEs.
Thoughts? Anyone been in this position recently and made the transition? I’m thinking in particular of events that don’t allow the use of carnivores at ALL like the herbivore and pterosaur events we had this weekend.
