It seems to me that I should not use a carnivore in the first slot as meat shield. In that case the AI thinks it is dangerous and does not attack with all it got. In those cases I nearly always lost the fight in the end.
If I use a herbivore or amphibian who can survive his first attack in the first slot, he attacks and gives me time to build up enough reserves for the rest of my team.
I’ve tried the old boss strategy some weeks ago but it did not work.
I now used my lvl 20 Monostegotops as meat shield, Spinotasuchus as 2nd who was ready again and a Metrialong as third.
What should I say…I won.
