Re-read the patch notes. Have a few thoughts on Boosts.
I wonder what the storage capacity will be. I will not be boosting anything right off, I will wait to see how things settle in. Will I be forced to use them or lose them at some point? How long will that take?
If I do not boost anything, will I be match against players who have boosted? Will there be an option for those that choose not to, to opt out by not boosting? Not a manual opt out choice, but done in the new match making process. It states it will be using a new “matchmaking score” when searching for an opponent. Or will it be only those who have boosted to a certain point, as in the example: “(such as a level 21 unique among a team of level 13 epics)”
The first line of the matchmaking notes states:
“Now that you can modify your creature’s strength, it becomes imperative that we consider each player’s creature team when attempting to match users together.”
I remain optimistic but see a possible issue if I choose not to use this new functionality and face an opponent who does.
Example: At what point will a boosted lower level creature be matched against a higher-level creature?
Say a level 20 Rex with stats boosted. Will it be matched against a team of level 20 non-boosted, level 24 non-boosted, Level 26 non-boosted opponent? It could tear up even a higher level non-boosted team if it is faster. If I choose not to boost and it has a speed of 133, it would be faster than anything I have.
