Seeing as tho a lot of players see Velociraptor as one of the strongest dinos in the current meta even to the point where saying it’s “overpowered” I am here today to defend the statement that raptors are not OP and do not need a rework.
Point 1- 8 slots.
Every dinosaur has a different kit and with the variety we have in the game it is easy to put in counters for every archetype. Raptors main weakness are slowing dinos. You have 8 slots and a multitude of Dinos to choose from. Stegosaurids can lower the speed of raptors then finishing them off with a Strike. Sauropods have slowing moves and can take a hit from a raptor. Use your own Raptor to draw out battles and make it even more exciting. Erlikosaurs can speed up then Rampage on the next hit. The point is you have to build your team that covera the bases in the meta and not just throwing in every available Rare and Epic you have.
Point 2- Bots
We all know how annoying bots are in the arena. They’re overleveled in accordance to our strongest dino and in higher arenas that’s what we fight most of the time. Sometimes even having a 10 level gap between them. This causes a rift in if we battle Raptors they have higher stats resulting in a sweep. Fix the bots.
Last point- Glass Cannon
Raptors before the global update were sitting at a low tier in the meta. They were reworked to have lower health and notch up in attack and Pounce was just a reskin of rampage. If they were to nerf Raptors once more then that would dratiscally put back the raptors down to the point where its usage would be at an all time low. Their roles are glass cannons, they can easily be taken down due to their lower health pool and if they don’t enough damage then that defeats their purpose.
Yes they are annoying to fight against, strong but not overpowered by any means.
