I know there have been a couple of threads on this already. Been playing for a little over a year,
For the most part the opinions so far seem to be split between those pre-boost and post-boost. Would love to get more feedback from those who were ‘premies’ like me. Sorry post-boosters, but would love some 1.6 or earlier opinions.
Having been in the preboost era I like the change in many ways. I do NOT like the loss of investment in boosts, however, and feel that this needs to be rectified. I like the idea of limited boosts per dino, but the 100 HC cost - seriously??? Seems like a cash grab by Ludia.
I dropped DC a while back and did not look back - even though I sometimes take a beating. Given the new meta Draco may have to come back though. Will hold off, like I am with boosting though. Been great using Dinos with better kits.
Have lost 200+ trophies so far with the changes. Gone from Library back to Aviary. Honestly I am fine with that. Want to settle into a proper level.
Dodge does not seem to work for me at all despite the reports I hear from others. Have attacked others with zero damage but my team seems to get at least 50% damage every time… I am sure it will work itself out, might just be bad luck.
So, good news… Boosts are no longer worth much. I certainly won’t bother buying them anymore and it makes it less interesting to complete the daily for the incubator. Why bother?
I LOVE that I am having battles in the arena now with ‘unboosted’ dinos! Yeah, I still run into the overly fast Thor and the high damage DC, but it has been great battling against people who have not applied any boosts (thank you Ludia - though I doubt this is what you had intended as it seems like another cash grab on your part).
Thanks Ludia as well for the spontaneous spawns! I have seen more cool dinos appear over the last couple of days than ever before. I applaud that!
So… In summation… I think this was a much needed change. Hate the way Ludia handled the boost issues (make it limited per dino and cheaper to encourage innovation) and love that it has made collecting DNA relevant again.
