Well, technically it’s more like 1 year and 5/6 months. I got the game when it came out and played until I reached the level cap at the time, which I believe was 50 but I stopped playing as I actually got stuck on a battle stage of all things, ha! Therefore, I have all of the base creatures unlocked which helped me on this journey and I didn’t realise how big of a flex that was until I joined the forums.
So I returned to the game 1 year ago today, close to my 1 year anniversary of joining the forums too so I felt like showcasing the difference in my lineup a year later. Bear in mind, I’ve always been a non-VIP player (apart from the trial week) and I played every day religiously for about 9 months - I’ve only slowed down recently because I got a new job, a few frustrations from Ludia being Ludia and I’m at a slow point in the game where I’m just deepening my team ready for Indoraptors.
Anyway, here was my lineup 1 year ago. I had 0 cenozoics and aquatics as they weren’t in the game when I played before.
Here’s where I am at now:
I’ve put zero effort into my cenozoics / aquatics, just hatching what I get. I need to move my Jurassic team forward - at least to VIP 20 ferocity. It’s either that or I pull a @Jurassic_Fury and dive into the deep end to make Indoraptors now (which is much more tempting) - I have 170,000+ DB saved to breeze through any necessary speed ups and the story missions that include the Indominous at L31 and L40.
Overall I’m happy with the progress. I could’ve been further along but life gets in the way (in a good way). Despite this, I have enjoyed the journey and I still plan on playing and dropping in here occasionally. I do want to give thanks to certain members here who have helped me both directly and indirectly throughout this year in the game. 2020 / lockdown was a rough time but the community here and our mutual love for this game helped a great deal! In no particular order, big thanks to: @Sionsith, @Bandeezee, @Timmah, @Jurassic_Fury, @Andy_wan_kenobi, @Subxero11, @Aether_12, @MirrMurr, @Cagkan_Coskun, @Mary_Jo and others.
