… Or the second dumbest idea ever?
A clear cataclysmic design of what happens when the combine play time of Gems of War staff is maybe… At best…2 hours a week.
I’ve done my best to avoid it since the update. Being the fool that I am. I thought it was reserved for those who “choose” to use Essence of Evil for now. (Or any troop that causes a random status effect.)
To a certain extent I suppose I still made the choice to use “a random status effect” troop in the arena just now.
- of course the 4th troop was close to dead before the transformation.
- of course out of all the negative status effects Lycanthropy was chosen.
- of course a Mythic stat beast would be chosen
- of course a worthless Mythic beast would be chosen so the dev fan boys/girls can be "What’s the big deal here, that troop wasn’t going to beat you. (Completely ignoring the extra time needed to defeat the extra stats from the opponent.)
In a better Gems of War. Lycanthropy would have no place in the Arena. But I’m sure that’s just the first mode of many modes I feel that way about in regards to Lycanthropy.
Lycanthropy can’t be all blamed on lack of actual play of ones own game though. Development pressure is clearly in play as well. The notion of every major update has to give us “Something” (other than new microtransactions). Well in this case… Nothing would of been better then something. At least nothing doesn’t severely nerf Essence of Evil. 🤷
