The real problem is poor matchmaking.
It always felt bad to go up against some overboosted monsters with your mildy boosted team. The thing is… that is still going to happen. It won’t be as dramatic, but the same algo that matched you with teams beyond your power level will continue to do so.
And that’s not even the worst part.
Most people who actively played and did some tapjoy etc were able to reach into tier 7… some even touching tier 8s here and there without swiping for extra cash to buy boosts. And tier 7-8 was fairly powerful. Obviously not so much as tier 10 some people were rocking but you could have a fighting chance.
Now in the new system that tier 8 lvl of boost only gets you to tier 5… tier 7 is only worth tier 2 in todays boost math. Now take someone who dropped a little RL cash and was tier 10… thats worth tier 20 in todays math. So now you’re going to be fighting tier 20 stats with your tier 2-5.
Yes, yes i know “but they capped the boost tiers to the dinos level!” Yea, thats not going to save your tier 2-5 dino from getting detroyed by somehting with 20 tiers of boosts. Because lvl20 on a dino isn’t exactly hard to get.
This update did nothing but allow people to spend more RL cash and quiet some folks who were focused on boosts being the issue rather than the poor matchmaking.
