This is a request/request for discussion regarding not releasing a new tier dragons in the next couple of weeks. I know there is a new tier designed already, but could you perhaps use those dragons but implement them at obsidian level? Or hold them back, and design some new obs ones instead?
Now, I understand that there is a need for content, and a need to have certain players that have unlocked all content, have an avenue to spend. This is fine of course,
What I’m pleading for, is that instead of launching a new even stronger tier, is that you instead release another 3 dragons in the obsidian tier.
The main reason for the request is the inevitable power jump that occurs with new tiers, essentially making the previous tier nearly worthless, except maybe 1 dragon per tier, and one tier further back completely worthless.
E.g. Look at Emerald dragons vs level 60 towers - pointless. What this comes down to is you are basically excluding everyone not in the latest two tiers from high level gaming (diamond).
The idea behind diamond as far as I’m concerned, is to have the highest skilled players compete, not artificially limiting it to the highest spending only
(once again - I’m not anti-spending, in fact I spend a lot, but I do want team members that don’t spends thousands a season to still be able to compete on skill basis, not quit cause it doesn’t matter how well they fly their emerald dragons, they can’t dent 60s defended)
Mythic obsidians, worth of the name mythic.
The tier has some serious shortcomings
- most of the dragons are breed and drop dragons
- most of them aren’t really up to taking on level 60 towers
- the three mythics only one is really worthwhile, one has some serious shortcomings (mafic), and one is utter rubbish (girasol) ---- we had seperate threads on those two, and I assume some balancing will be done.
Would it be so bad, to release 3 more mythics? And maybe just have some input from higher teams/players regarding the usefuless of certain spell combos?
There is a glaring gap in obsidian
Hunter - finisher dragons/wings (last good one was Ferga)
Warrior - both lead and wing
Sorceror - Finisher dragon
As discussed elsewhere, you really need a sorceror that can blow stuff up as long as the base is prepared properly. In other words one without a minion leading that unsands and unlocks all disabled towers.
For hunters - there is a need for a dragon that can finish off defended bases that are well prepped (tweaking mafic might be sufficient)
For warriors - you need a tank. Thats useful vs defended bases.
Anyways, although I have some ideas on HOW these dragon skills could be combined etc, its kind of a moot point to discuss unless we can somehow get a discussion going on not releasing another tier.
Could you please provide some input regarding PG thoughts on why a new tier is better than say adding more dragons to obsidian? In turn I’m sure myself or many other players can provide input on why adding a new tier is not good, and why adding more obsidians are better?
