I wanted him nerfed from the beginning even though I own it but after playing against Grovo and using it against the AI I can’t in good conscience say that it needs a Nerf.
It isn’t that hard to deal with and the AI does surprisingly well against Grovo. The amount of posion and armor piercing attacks is prevelant enough to handle the little green Namekian as well.
I think Grovo is perfectly balanced. If we are going to start nerfing monsters because newbies are complaining then we should Nerf some of the truly OP monsters that obliterate newbies beyond recovery.
The fact is he isn’t a top tier monster in PvP. And is now usable in PVE.
Also the TU on Spriggolo’s attack is HUGE.
I don’t get what all the fuss is about. I’m not a veteran player and it doesn’t bother me.
When I see Penguinator, Dolphreeze, Gyo, Magama, Goldtail, BB, Malwing, ect ect coming in next in the reinforcements I’m on higher alert then when I see Grovo.
Take Goldtail as an example. If you let it in without having your monsters at low TU… Buckle up for torture and frustration of the highest order.
Good luck to all the newbies that aren’t prepared.
Do I want Goldtail nerfed because it is tough? HELL NO
How can newer players get better if they don’t face tough monsters and players?
From day one of PvP I faced the unstoppable(for me) BB spam that Kei was using. Instead of complaining about it because my team got obliterated without killing more than 4 monsters I LOVED the experience and looked for ways to counter it. Finally beat that team.after many months of learning more about this game and getting new momsters. I can’t describe the satisfaction.
If you guys nerfed Delugazar back then I would have been royally pissed even though I didn’t own it. Because as I said here: Delugazar AOE, should be 1 target attack..!
It’s bloody fun facing it and finding ways to kill it.
These are my thoughts. Others can tell you that I almost always oppose nerfing monsters. 90% of the time I have argued against nerfing monsters I didn’t own said monsters. My opinion is honest.
