I want to talk about the mistake of gross miscalculation on Monomimus. Bruce Lee once said “mistakes are always forgivable, if one has the courage to admit them.” So, first, thank you for admitting your mistake. I really appreciate it.
However, here comes my questions and I do not understand how you were trying to correct your mistake.
Your explanation “Monomimus was way too powerful when considering its component ingredients and rarity” is not true. One is a local epic and one is exclusive from Arena incubator. It is definitely harder than some other hybrids.
Even let’s say alright it was too powerful, I do not understand how you let your players pay the price for your mistake? If the dinos are your products and we players are the customers to buy your products, don’t you think, as the seller, you should be responsible for your products? If your products were mistakenly produced, our customers have the right to ask for compensation. Of course, I am not saying all the dino adjustments need to be compensated, but only those mistake ones.
Furthermore, we invested so much time and coins into creating and leveling up Monomimus and why should we suffer from your mistake in the next update? I clearly remember I walked in the rain for two days and each day I spent at least THREE hours to find Gallimimus during the fast dino showcase week. There weren’t too many special event drops and I had to walk for a long time. The rain did not stop me because I knew Monomimus was powerful and I wanted it on my team. Also, I did not level up other dinos but spent all my coins on Monomimus. Have you thought about us players when making such a decision to nerf it?
So, please consider:
Either compensate the players who leveled up Monomimus (for example, giving back half of the coins),
Adjust the move (most compliants of Monomimus came from its dodge, you can change something like cool down after one dodge etc.)
Make a unique if you think it was too easy to create or level up.
Just leave Monomimus alone
Or at least,
Make a post addressing such issue, how to avoid it in the near future, how to assure our players that our investments can be somehow guaranteed, and what if such happens again, etc. Please just do NOT ignore us.
Thank you for your time.
