Honestly, 80% of dinosaurs can’t even be considered for any team. It’s kind of sad.
Half the dinosaurs are low health, low damage, and have no interesting or useful abilities. Styg gen 2, for example (which Ludia has clearly put an emphasis on styg gen 2 DNA since that’s almost literally the only thing you get in incubators anymore).
The meta is so raptor and counter raptor centric. Every battle goes pretty much the same way. Every team is mostly raptors, Rex/i-rex, and tanks/raptor counters, with the occasional utility dinosaur (ouranosaurus). Battles only vary by first dinosaurs put out and by who has the stronger raptor.
Would definitely like Ludia to make some changes to most of these completely useless dinosaurs. It’s boring always seeing stego, stegocero, ankylo, raptors, einiasuchus, Rex… Ludia needs to make more dinosaurs viable or at least even near meta-strength.
There’s essentially 3 tiers of dinosaurs
Tier 1 – about 10-15 dinosaurs that literally everyone uses
Tier 2 – maybe 10 off-meta dinos that are okay at best, and rarely seen in battles
Tier 3 – the rest of the dinosaurs. Completely useless trash cans, with no survivability, damage, or utility (why even put these in the game if they are completely useless to everyone who is higher than a level 1 player)
Tier 1 should be much more open. And it could easily be more open by giving most of the dinosaurs some buffs and actual abilities.
PS. Don’t come in here flaming like a little keyboard warrior. We’re here to talk about the meta and hopefully get Ludia’s attention.
