NEW ABILITIES

New Ability Mechanic: Devour

Devour is a new ability mechanic attached to some Fierce creatures. Devour abilities deal damage like regular Strikes, Impacts and Rampages, but also heal your creature with a percentage of that attack damage over a specified number of turns!

These powerful abilities will help your Fierce creatures stay in the fray longer, but use them wisely. If your attack damage is reduced by Shields or debuffs, your heal value will also be reduced! All Devour abilities released in 2.15 bypass Armor and Shields.

Look for the T. rex gobbling down health on Ability icons to indicate a Devouring ability!

RAID MATCHMAKING

Want to play in Raids but don’t have enough Friends or Allies online to build your Lobby? Use the new Raid Matchmaking features: Auto Join and Auto Fill!

To use Auto Join, visit a Raid you want to play on the Map. Tap AUTO JOIN, next to the CREATE button. This will automatically add you to a Lobby with other players from around the world looking to fight this Boss!

Have a few friends you want to play with but not enough to fill your Lobby?

To use Auto Fill Visit a Raid, Create a Lobby, fill it with any teammates you are looking to play with, then tap AUTO FILL! This will fill remaining empty slots with players looking to Raid! Only Lobby leaders will have access to this button, and only players fully in the Lobby (not just invited) will keep their slots.

Auto Join and Auto Fill are available for Raids of all rarities. Auto Join and Auto Fill have replaced Public/Private join settings in Raids. Using Auto Fill may cause leaders to be moved to a new slot as Lobbies are linked together, but teammates selected before Auto Filling will always remain together!

Happy Raiding!

WHAT'S IMPROVED

CREATURE UPDATES

Troodoboa

Troodoboa has slightly lower Stat values than other creatures in its weight-class, and was underperforming in Battles. We’re giving it a bit more of a fighting chance by changing its basic attack to one with Priority.

Abilities:
Shielded Alert Strike becomes Instant Decelerating Precision.


WHAT'S FIXED

Bug Fixes & Known Issues

About 136 of those pesky bugs have been squashed for 2.15! Here are a few of the most notable fixes that you are likely to enjoy:

  • Apple device players may receive offline / push notifications while online.
  • The Progression Info cards available after a level up in the News tab of the mail are only available after the next time the game is launched
  • Resilient Strike, Resilient impact and Resilient Rampage vulnerability now last 2 attacks.

We’re currently working on solutions for the following known issues:

  • The tooltip stats information is not updated as soon as the associated buff/debuff has ended during a Raid.
  • Apple device players may receive offline / push notifications while online.
  • Raid invite push notifications are only in English.
  • Icons and buttons are all displayed on screen after a drone session or opening incubators on a 1 gig Apple device.
  • Expired DNA Donation Requests Remain in Alliance Chat.

A note on data collecting
We’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who has been participating in our numerous surveys and providing us with constructive feedback on our forums and social channels. We believe in player feedback and although changes rarely occur immediately, the very tangible data we collect, especially from our surveys, help guide us on our roadmaps and future optimizations.

T. rex should have devouring abilities. It is literally the symbol of the icon

I’m a little mad that this Albert Unique seems better and I spent all my DNA in the other one…

MY BOI EDAPHOCEVIA GETS A HYBRID YES!!

Gonna do a full creature review later, but this stuff looks pretty darn interesting.

Ok. Hooray for allorap getting a hybrid! And its a fierce flock. (Shouldnt it be called a pack) but also… not on love with the shillouett. Guess its a plus that the new ingredient is wild spawning.

And i already dont like auto join/ fill. Yall couldve kept the public and private options. Jsut because im waiting on someone to get on to send an invite (cause yall cant seem to.fix those bugs) does not mean i want someone to auto join the lobby. They will be kicked and there will be complaints about it

Did more expect them to look like little t rexes but overall nice design

Not quite sure if this is an furry baryonx or a marsupial lion with a barry head. Overall interesting. Can’t wait to see him

Although I would have preferred alloraptor getting a non flock hybid he looks interesting

Hold on - cunning attacks only last for 1 turn, 2 attacks. And fierce of course only causes damage, no effects, so also are 1 turn only. Does this mean that resilient attacks are now 1 turn, 2 attacks? Because otherwise, that feels like it’s unbalancing the classes again.

It’s also listed as a bug fix, but the in-game tooltip literally states 2 turns, 1 attack, which would mean it’s working correctly?

Hope their stat not bad

All the Tarbosaurus DNA that I have left unused will finally be useful for something.
If I can get more Compy G2 that is :laughing:

Really nice update, not really up to my expectations but hey ho. Its a good one

90% sure it’s a floofy baryonyx.

Such disappointment, the new devour and raid matchmaking could be interesting, Alloraptor and edaphocevia hybrid is nice but… what about the other hybrids like Alankylosaurus and Dimodactylus? Those should be priority of getting a hybrid… and the creature rotation, really just saying we can find the new rare on the map and like all hybrids you can get them from fusing or from events, was really hoping some already existing creatures would rotate their availability (Exclusives being wild and vice versa…) and only 1 creature update, basically now Troodoboa can have a priority shield now anytime, good for Troodoboa but was really hoping for some other creature changes.
Well, really hope all of this can be in the next patch :disappointed:

Seriously another Albertosaurus hybrid already?

Yeah. Like alloraptor was overdue, but dimodactylus is far more overdue

Like the DNA isn’t hard enough to get…

I’m glad that some older dinos are getting love. Compy G2, Alloraptor, Edaphocevia, all getting hybrids this update. Although you guys should definitely begin working on a Dimodact and Alankylo hybrid, we’ve been waiting on them for years now… The Devour mechanic seems interesting, hope some old Fierce get that mechanic to be a little more relevent.
