Am I imagining or does every single rare Titan I get the worst boards
Not really. It is just your imagination.
It feels worse since you can’t stun it with the color it reflects.
My scores do go down a lot in rare titans
They’re always crap, whether they admit it or not I think they nerf rare boards.
The rares are tougher in several dimensions that an standard. The boards aren’t worse, you just have more limitations on who you bring and they have specials that can impact your ability to do damage and they can hit harder. If you aren’t killing your titans before the last 5-6 hours then you will have big issues with a rare titan of the same * rating because they are just plain tougher.
