FYI, this is a rant post for me to fume about my frustrations with those who may be in a similar boat to me. Not all of us have giant wallets or swathes of dinos to pick up each day.
I know this game is mostly centred around the battle system and clearly having a good team is the way to win, but the matchmaking lately has pissed me off. My team is by no means useless (full team of legendaries - was in Badlands but got kicked down two levels today). I was consistently winning more than I lost, but lately, every match is a loss, no matter how smart I play.
Everyone I face seems to have the perfect team, while RNG gives me my most incompatible dinos. I try my best but I stand no chance against stegoceratops (haven’t seen a blue triceratops myself, in over a month) Perma stunning, level 20 instakill raptors and level 15 instakill rexes. I don’t spend much money on this game because I feel I should be able to play without opening my wallet (foolish notion I suppose). I pick up dinos around me, although lately, all the quality ones have gone. I just have apatosaurs and useless commons that lead nowhere. I wouldn’t mind if the odd blue appeared, but it doesn’t.
How am I supposed to have a flying chance of winning a game if I can’t level up my dinos or even make new hybrids? Only a certain set of dinos are viable at current meta, so anything else is just setting you up for failure.
Yes, I know I need better dinos, but am I seriously expected to either purposely lose every game until I go to the starting arena, or simply just give up. Without those incubators, I can’t find anything remotely useful.
On a side note, I’m sick of all these dumb glitches, which just further exasperates my issue. I had one dino get stunned for two turns instead of one, losing me the match. It almost feels like people are hacking, but must be a glitch…I hope.
I’m close to quitting at the moment because I’m losing all enjoyment for this game. It’s supposed to be fun, not an irritating chore.
Rant over and sorry for complaining so much, just needed to vent somewhere and tbh I feel Ludia deserve it as of late.
