    I'd ask why, but figure everyone has their reasons based on personal play style.

    I chose the Panda because I could use another source of non-boosted T2 goods aside from the Trader, traveling merchants, and the small Spire prizes I've gotten so far. When I have more space and if more artifacts come my way in the future, I'd probably go for the Brown Bear as well. The tournament bonus on Polar is nice, but I don't need the extra Magic Dust as the Carnival set already gives me about 16K of it every day.

    None. Since I cater everything, I had demoed my armories a few months ago. Then I got a troop quest, and producing them 30 every 30ish minutes became too much of a grind. I despise having to rebuild my armories again.

    I cater too when I'm low on units or between chapters and they're not strong enough to fight. That's another reason I went for the Panda, despite seeing that it's not the most popular of choices on other threads. Catering + researching is a constant drain my T2's and there's only maybe 4 people in my world that regularly fulfill the trades, even though they aren't cross-tier.

    I have been fortunate enough to max my Polar, and I might place a Brown if I can get it to at least level four (so I can generate a type of unit I'm far off from producing, the frogs), but I like each bear, really. I have a compulsion for completing all six rounds of however many tournament provinces I decide to compete in, and that's often tough to swing every week, and being able to condense a tournie is great for me (the Maze is far off, too), along with magical goods and portal profits. I produce more first tier than second and more second than third, and I'm still in the process of balancing my output.

    I love all three of them, but I am just not sure which one I want or should place!
    I placed the brown bear in one city to help for tournaments, but have only evolved to stage 2, but I want all 3, but I can't because of space! :eek:
    Ideally I'd place all 3 and evolve them all the way, is that even possible?

    It's possible, but you'd have to be very dedicated or spend diamonds.

    Brown Bear with Polar a distant (but still useful) second. Panda really isn't that great. No amount of goods production will keep up with a 100% cater/negotiate playstyle; no matter how much you're producing, you're always going to run out of goods before you run out of stuff you can use goods for. I'd never be able to cater 50+ tournament provinces a week even if my entire city was focused on producing goods, but that's easily doable with fighting especially now with the Brown Bear. So I always spring for anything that boosts military in some way while I consider anything else to be basically worthless.

    Brown bear is a must at 10. I like the panda as a couple of these helps out with tier 2 goods, which is my shortest in all my cities. Polar is nice if you don't have a timewarp. Increasing it doesn't get it much better. You get a 10% cooldown just for placing it, but it takes 9 relics to get another 10%. Why bother?

    I still like the Panda too. The running out of goods before running out of stuff to use goods on argument doesn't make me regret my choice, if that was the aim and wouldn't deter me if I hadn't already decided. The goods are always needed for research techs, where strictly focusing everything on military boosts isn't helpful. Some people's cities don't revolve around fighting or Tournaments, so it makes little sense for them to focus everything on their military.

    Nonetheless, I did make space for a baby (Stage 3) Brown Bear, which I hope to be able to upgrade fully in the future. I'd try to get more artifacts for it now, but am out of time for this event due to IRL obligations.

    I just don't understand why the panda is sitting on a toilet.

    LOL! Or why stage 9 also looks a bit um...wrong...

    Also I'm personally keeping my polar bear at 9, the last couple % tourney reduction won't make a difference and at this point (start of amuni) I'd actually rather have a 5% supply instant over another portal profit.
