I think Gree may have inadvertently added to strategy in this game. As long as you dont worry about power numbers.
So I have decided rather than remain peeved with last two updates (c2&3). Im using the last two updates to win against any mindless upgrader and to upgrade other toons which have been low on my priority list along with a few that are better at c3. I can also stockplile c2&3 items for a time when (shudder) c4 or whatever means certain toons improve.
So a mindless upgrader (not those above) who thinks loss of dodge or massive skill increase to physical damage types etc. Might be complaining about my underpowered c1 or c2 teams kicking their expensive c3 lines.
