Given the run of the last 5 weekends of tournaments for unlocks (which has been great for progress), it has become very evident that the “PVP” battles take way longer than they should.
I would say on average I take about 3 seconds to make my move. I’d say the average battle takes about 3 minutes (from choosing dinos to getting the prize for a victory).
Let’s also assume the average battle each team takes 10 turns.
This makes about 30 seconds of me playing and the 2:30 rest of the time is just waiting for animations and the other player to move. This is a horrible ratio (1:5), and makes it way more time consuming and boring, and does not make me want to invest more time.
The obvious first candidate for reduction in wasted time is the time it takes the bot to move, often 15+ seconds and pretty much always 10+ seconds. I think this could easily fit down a minute.
The second is the animations and time after a victory. First the trophies count down, then the leader chart takes way too long and then the dumb wheel spin. This process should take 2 seconds not the 15+ seconds it currently does. We all know the prize is determined before and the wheel spin doesn’t make a difference.
The Dino animations are good, but really all other animations are just a waste of time (I’m looking at you, fusion chamber blinking).
