So, I’m not sure where to begin with this,
An update or two (maybe three?) ago, I vividly remember Ludia mentioning that unique hybrids will be power-scaled based on how hard they are to make, but I can’t disagree more with this sentiment.
Looking at the past few updates, looking at the new uniques that have been released, I cannot help but feel that nearly all of them have been terrible. Poukandactylus has horrendous stats, Skoonasaurus is easily outclassed by the other two unique sauropod titans; there are most certainly a few more to add in this category, but I digress.
Then you have other unique creatures, with all their materials being quite easy to obtain (no event exclusives) and absolutely decimate the arena. Some examples of this include Magnapyritor, Erlikospyx, and Mammolania, to name a few.
So my question to Ludia I suppose would be: Why haven’t these creatures been balanced to mirror their difficulty in creation? For clarity, I will present a list of creatures that require event exclusives VS those that do not, just to show that some of the best hybrids in the game do not reflect the message given to us players.
Unique hybrids that require event exclusives:
Unique hybrids that DO NOT require event exclusives:
To clarify: I am completely aware that this statement has been true in regards to some uniques, such as Geminititan and Tenontorex, but the inconsistency of said statement is my main grievance. Some of those super difficult-to-make hybrids will most never likely see any play, whether it be a bad move-set or horrible stats (sometimes even both).
What do you guys think? It’s just been a thing that’s been bothering me for a while now and I had to voice my opinion at some point or another.
