Haha - we have a new trait type coming out which applies extra armor to troops of matching type… “Divine Shield” will give armor to all Divine troops for example… so poor old Celestasia had to get her trait name “buffed”.
Unfortunately, though we discussed it, we decided not to put her up for refund this week
I’m not sure it’s devour itself taking center stage, as these troops only devour a certain type of troop. Two of which (Goblins and Dragons) are general banes to people at various levels. So these are more just very niche counters, unlike something like Kerberos or Kraken who can devour any kind of troop.
We’ll have to see what this change entails as I feel it will affect how we perceive these counter troops.
Terraxis is one of my favorites, and I would dare say criminally undervalued in general. I’m looking forward to seeing how these changes are going to affect my teams with it. At first-blush slightly more loop-able and slightly more damage. I like it a lot!
edit: Isn’t it technically accurate to say you actually lowered the ratio, not increased it?
I think it depends on how you read it? If you look at it as a decimal, then it’s gone from 0.333 points of damage per gem to 0.5 points. So if you’re looking at the ratio from a per-gem perspective (amount of damage per gem), it’s an increase? (as opposed to the number of gems needed for 1 point)
Yeah, but that’s not how ratios are expressed, not at least as I have understood them thus far in my life. If you want to express damage-per-gem then the ratio would be written 1:2. But as it stands it is gems-per-point-of-damage so its written 2:1
Therefore my original point stands? 3:1 is a higher ratio than 2:1, therefore correct to say lower, no?
Yes I’m being totally pedantic but I’m also genuinely curious.
True, though having both a 1:2 and 2:1 format in the game can be confusing at a quick glance. Hence why we have the x2 format.
Also I think it might come down to the over all result? The overall damage has been increased, so it’s easier to understand a “ratio increase” as a buff, and a decrease as a nerf. Not technically correct in pure ratios I suppose, but in terms of conveying the message its better?
