Magna and monolo need 100% decel resistance or they wouldn’t work. End game wise they are already pretty balanced. Both are countered by faster speedsters or very high HP tanks like well, Maxima. Gemini can kill magna too. That’s why they don’t need any nerfs, they have enough counters. And sure, having that distraction resistance is better than nothing but they are partly cunning creatures too. They function as a counter to some resilient-fierce creatures, like Thor and Tryko, sometimes Dio, but not all of them. We could remove their distraction resistance and It wouldn’t affect their matchups too much, but changing their decel resistance to anything other than 100% and they become pretty much irrelevant. Out of the meta. Having them being outsped by maxima and Tryko would be terrible, they are designed to counter something like Tryko, and can at least get 2 hits on Maxima. Them having few resistance weaknessess is irrelevant when they have enough counters, not to mention, their stats distribution is their “hidden weakness”. They don’t have the bulk of a chomper nor the speed of pure speedsters, this is something that balances them.
That’s not the case with Maxima and to a lesser extent Tryko. Maxima doesn’t really need that much distraction resistance to defeat speedsters since It has resilient strike, so i thought It was a good way to balance It without It losing it’s use on raids. But maybe having 50% is better than removing It completely. I’m not sure, balancing It without compromising raid use is complicated and for that we need to rework other creatures to be counters, not just change maxima. Something that @Qaw did really well.
For me the reason Tryko is considered unbalanced is precisely the resilient impact. It was perfectly balanced when It couldn’t cleanse distraction. I like the new slowing capabilities but cleansing distraction is what’s breaking It. Personally i hate that It lost HP, I’d take a Tryko with slowing impact instead of resilient impact but with 4500 HP back over the current one any day of the week.
