In the last tourney (Spinoconstrictor) we saw few epic hybrids completly dominate the game leaving the rest completly behind.
I will talk about 3 categories:
The most used:A must have,among the strongest!If you made a team only with it,the victory is sure
The barely see:Sometime,some original people don’t play to win,but for the pleasure to use average power dino,they are not bad,not good either
The “Do not pick up or you loose”:Among the worst in his category,when you see the opponent using them,you think:a free victory
The most used were:
-Sarcorixis::The clear number 1,without it,don’t expect to be part of the top500,literally a must have because of his devastating 2950dmg in 1 turn ,the double stun and the no escape combo.On advantage tourney:With enough Speed and Dmg boost,you can do 3-0 without even getting hurt.
-Thylaco : Probably the number 2 with the recent buff ludia gave her in 2.1 .Really strong with the best bleeding move of the game ,the rending takedown and the immunity to slow.
-IndomG2 : One of the best fierce creature in the epic hybrids.
With 2 ability to increase his damage and all the immunities,Indominus was a really great addition to the team ,as it could aswell be a counter to thylaco and sarco (Only on skill tourney)
-Purrutaurus : A good traper,completly obliterate by sarcorixis but is efficient enough to trap his victims and play mind games with them.
-Entelechops : One of the rare sarco counter even on advantage tourney,is with indomG2 one of the best fierce creature,the stun immunity is really helpful to deal against sarco and the swap in dmg/stun.
-Velosrhacos : The newcomer is really good,and well balance.The stun immunity allow him to be a nice revenge killer and to punish the swap in stunners!The double rampage hurt a lot and can be spam forever.One weakness:Resilient which can kill it.In advantage tourney,too young to have an opinion.
-Erlikogamma : Erli was really good to shut down quickly velosharcos (even if the speed tie made people scream a lot),a nice turn one rampage,a swap resistance.It suffer from the same weakness of Velosharcos.
The barely see were:
-Postimetrodon::The first twin brother is nice but not powerful enough to do his job,his immunity is a really nice addition as his 4500hp pool,but the damage done are too weak considering you can be destroy by any cunning creature.
-Stegoceratops:The only swap in stunner of his category :A bit underwhelming,people had prefer to use wooly rhino which is not a hybrid surprisingly.
-Procerathomimus:The recent buff made yoshi stronger again (instead of monomimus),it suffer from the same weakness from erliko and velosrhacos ,but it get an horrible turn 1 if you face a resilient,and is too slow for a cunning (127 speed only).
-Majundaboa:I have seen 3-4 players using it as 3td pick,to be comfort a victory:if the opponent swap out,he became strong.The problem is ,itself he is weak,too slow to be dangerous and to set up his shield or ferocious ability and too squishy to survive more than 2 round.
-Gorgosuchus:The second twin brother,Probably the icon of the fierce in epic hybrids,he was in the same spot as postimetrodon:Seen sometimes but it lack something,too weak to be efficient.
-Brontolasmus:If the last patch didn’t nerf it,it would be in the most used,now brontolasmus is too squishy to be an efficient tank,completly shut down by sarcorixis,thylaco,entelechops and on a speed tie win ,by indomG2
The “Do not pick up or you loose” were:
-Dimodactylus:Dimodactylus have really cool design and abilities ,but it will always be used for the swap in bleed oftenly resulting into a kamikaze move ,resulting in loosing a dino.
-Edmontoguanodon:A past beast i used to lvl to 30,when it was a health and runner ,now,it is good to use on Pve,a complete disaster on tourney,one word:Unusable.
-Armagocephalus:Completly unseen,it lack everything:If an opponent draw velosrhacos and you point him out?just ignore it and swap to sarcorixis,this guy make me feel he is sleeping on the battlefield,when you face it,you just have no pressure.
-Megalogaia:Fast for a resilient,even if its the best of this pool (or the worst of the barely seen),it lack something to be really strong,he was almost unseen.
-Nodopatosaurus:Completly unseen on the last 2 tourneys:The rework made me think it was cool to bring him back,but it seem this is still not enough.
-Scaphotator:Scaphotator have the same curse as dymodactylus,a kamikaze which flight ,i don’t understand his kit since he his too squishy to use it and have not enough punch to be a threat.
-Spinotahraptor:The last hybrid with a simple strike,Too squishy (less hp than procera and erlikogamma which are cunnings.)
What are your opinion about them?
If you don’t agree,feel free to categorize them.
