First off: don’t insert words into my quotes
Two. Neptus was able to hit +1 on decent bases, requiring a fair amount of skill.
His white spell could not kill +2 due to its inherent dmg restriction, in fact it failed to kill defended farms on release due to not enough dmg. Even then, he did not clear max bases defended without being maxed tier. On top of that he was released at a point where towers trailed dragons by half a tier. The base meta had little to nothing to do with it- it was simply a powerful dragon, which required good timing to do well vs n, and less good timing on n-1. To round it off - you almost always needed two, very very occasionally could someone clear.
Regarding “two being good enough”
Nope. Two perfectly flown perfectly executed should have a reasonable shot. “Good enough” is 4-5 dragons.
Especially true since Atlas is in play
Also I think some who perhaps aren’t at the base lvl we are talking about are missing the significance in power difference here.
JLs base is kinda interesting.
The difference between a lvl 450 base ( with maxed islands for island 4-5-6 ) vs a lvl 1 base
JLs base and that lvl 450 - the difference is bigger for JLs (power wise)
That’s how big the base is. I think the middle to late 300s have no idea how big the difference is between a lvl 550+ and a lvl 370
