As some of you who read my comments may know (I do feel like a stuck record sometimes) i have reached a point where I have set myself my own goals - that of getting all non-hybrids up to 20th and only using the two canon hybrids.
With that in mind I have set myself another task for the fun value. Starting a few weeks ago I decided to play theme teams. I would include the two big bads just in case my theme for the week was not going to be good, as they would help prevent me falling too far and then hammering lower players when i changed theme. But the other six dinosaurs/animals would be put to that theme,
Week 1 was Commons. I fully expected to get squished playing this but the Common team actually kept me about the same trophy level throughout that week’s play. It actually made me think that perhaps Commons are underrated.
Week 2 was Rares. This team did not do me well at all and I had to make some frequent changes. I found there just wasn’t the variety in Rares and nothing really gelled together. Even with the big bads supporting me I dropped from the top of Sorna Mashes to the bottom of Lockdown.
Week 3 was Epic week and this changed things round nicely. I quickly climbed back up to the middle of Sorna Marshes. The only disappointments here were Pyroraptor and Spinosaurus G2. Neither of these held up as decent Epics during this week.
As I don’t play hybrids outside of the canon two I skipped Legendary and Unique (not sure I have enough for a team of Uniques anyway). Currently I am playing a Carnivore only team this week. I’ll update that on Sunday when I change teams.
