I have a 2nd account going I started a month before the Alliance thing started.
I started it to play for fun where the white and blue strike towers were a challenge. I also used it as a help for doing duo epic strike towers for my primary account to see which dino came first and what their move sets were. Of course at first I would die 1, 2, 3.
Then the Alliance thing came unexpectedly so on rare occasions when my primary account is right at leveling a good dino, I could request and give enough DNA for a bump-up sooner than waiting to find and dart that specific dino.
Well now things are turning around. My primary account is strong enough to comfortably take on the duo strike towers without the need to know who comes first for better tactical planning. I have enough different 20 to 25 dino’s to use and some of those odd ball lethal wound guys to do the job.
My second account has now beat the last 4 of 5 epic strike towers. So now instead of putting my second account out to see who comes first, now I go out with my primary account to see who comes first for my second account for better tactical planning as to which dino’s will go first and what moves they use first.
The Ptero duo today was a success with my second account base on seeing that the dino I expected to come first came 2nd which changed my strategy as to who I would put out first and what their first move would be. So I beat 2 level 30’s with level 17, 17, 10 and 19 dinos.
Another use for a second account is darting. I find I always dart better the second time on a same dino. So I use my little account first to dart something and then go to my primary where I tend to dart a little better, depending on which account I want more DNA for. I may go the other way around.
As for scents, I do scents for both at the same time and just go back and forth. This keeps things moving along and not sitting bored between spawns.
Friendly battles: Depending on who need them between mine or my wife’s accounts, we can do those quickly.
Also for testing out dino’s or understanding the swapping, impacts and runs, and how the moves go and when. I also set up the friendly battles with the strike tower dino’s to experiment with their and my dino’s move sets. This helps to set up a strategy.
For beating these duo strike towers with my second account, it comes down to the math. Who goes first, how much damage, what moves, when to switch, and who to switch with, who to sacrifice. Basically, who can do more damage quick enough to take out the opponent dino before it takes out mine. There is some crossing your fingers and hoping that there are no critical hits on me but planning to win without critical hits on the opponent dino’s. If a stun works, that is a bonus but don’t plan those into the math. You need to be able to win with 1x, 1.5x and 2x hits. If your opponent dino has a shield or armor, you can figure that into the math.
Anyway having a second account handy is useful in many ways.
