I tend to use Dio or Rinex myself but I’m more willing to send Rinex if I have them both and save Dio for a guranteed good match up.
I never subscribed to the idea of sending your best Dino out first… unless you plan on swapping into something else. Your sending your first Dino out to die… hopefully it either kills your opponents Dino and prevents an easy revenge or creates an easy revenge itself. But either way it’s being sent off to die.
Unless your hoping for a 3-0 which in this meta is unrealistic why would you send your best Dino out to die.
If it has a rampage and run and can take out a Dino and replace itself with a fresh Dino that’s even better.
Playing Max last means your playing him at a point when you’ve depleted the enemy team to a point it has no answer for his high health and high damage.
Early today I played a game where my magna got draco’d but the rend resistance kept magna alive and the draco ate a rampage the problem for me was magna couldn’t kill draco that round and couldn’t take either impact. So I swapped to a full health Max… now My max was given up 4 levels and both were boosted but my max was able to eat 2 impacts and deliver the fatal rampage.
