So lets get back to the topic. You want everything that does more then 400 dmg per round nerved?
Cause you guys being playing dodgeball all a long crying darkness teams have to be nerved....

Sorry as I stated before I dont watch vids likes yours. its to boring to watch and most of the ones I seen people only show themself only winning which makes these videos even useless as a teaching video for new starters...

Is there a reason why you ignore questions like:
#1 You want easy wins instead of a challenge?
#2 You want a boring 100% predictable game?

You're referring to the bone Serpent doing over 400 damage each turn? It isn't for that sole reason it's strong having a weather change and bone barrage in combination with doing that high damage makes its strong.

I not after easy wins like some people are ;) ;)

As I said I would rather make better choices than have a game decided by rng. More rng doesn't mean more exciting.

Drudatz you bash everyone on these forums what do you expect back?

Nice try to imply I am after easy games but contrary to you I prefer long lasting games with 15mins and more.

If the game is MORE predictable you have LESS choices.
So to sum up you want short and easy games but dont like stuff like RI, Traps and Darkness Teams.
The game is full of RNG as it is now. Traps, Demolish, Stuns, etc.
Predictability makes for a damn boring game

No I dont.
Having a different opinion as you does not mean I bash you. If you feel offended by someone having a different opinion than thats on you.

Your interpretation is way off.

Your games last 15 minutes or plus as you run heal heavy strategies using tier 1 pets. Dah, idol, crawdad, teroclaw and ba are some of the best pets in the game. It doesn't make it any harder to win a match if it's longer. Generally long matches are caused by low damage output on one or both teams not tactical moves and swaps.

Ok in basic terms, I want good choices in a match to decide the outcome not lucky crits, stuns, % hits. You mentioned increasing the rng in pet battles but that would reduce the importance of good play.

I don't mind darkness teams I play them just not all the time.

I think like the majority of the community traps, bone serpent & righteous inspiration are too strong. I also think sunnyday/photosynthesis, natures ward, and Wish are all slightly too good at present. In some cases still is the humanoid racial. This is probably due to the aoe nerf not taking into account how strong backline healing would become without strong aoe. I don't believe strong aoe should return but reduction in those healing abilities to reflect the aoe nerf would be good.

Maybe you don't intend to offend people but most of your comments certainly come across that way. If you don't care about offending people that's up to you.

Agreed easy wins are boring too but longer doesn't necessarily mean better.
Some of the most boring, painful , plain annoying fights I have had are long ones.
Specially if made long by the other player stalling and using a heal team.
Those are the worst pvp battles.
Generally I do enjoy a longer match if longer due to it be challenging and competitive but stall or healing teams don't make pet pvp any better
