I just wanted to say thank you to devs for dealing quickly with the OP Ardmax problem. For not waiting to do it for 9 months, like you did with Prorat or Indo G2. You did is as quickly as you could (first update after 2.0), I admire it. Nerfs are an important, neccessary part of this game and will always happen, sooner or later.
Before y’all start saying that I don’t care about your effort and grind, know that I do care about it. Not only I care about yours, about mine too. I used, leveled and boosted an Ardmax too.
But it’s not true that the nerf made Ardmax useless. No, it’s still perfectly useful, without doubt in the better half of uniques. There were way worse nerfs, this one isn’t that bad.
The nerf was slightly too big indeed. As I said, nerfs are neccessary (don’t even try to argue about it), but buffs are too if a creature is underpowered instead of overpowered. Both underpowered and overpowered creatures are unbalanced and need some kind of a change. Ardmax was very overpowered and needed a nerf, now it’s slightly underpowered and needs a slight buff. It has to happen quickly, just like the nerf had to. Do not wait with it please. Whenever you see that something is unbalanced, do something about it asap. Do not wait for months like you once did with indo G2 and Prorat. Act swiftly, do not fear to do balancing when it’s neccessary. Don’t care about people complaining that a nerf happened. It’s the sacrifice we all have to do if we want to have a balanced game. Balance for all is more important than the work some players had put into unbalanced dinos. We should all understand it.
A boost refund would be a fine compensation tho
