Black ant changes

Right now, black ants feel very outclassed by fire ants. Not only more expensive, but they do not have a selectable ability (pervasive/vigorous) and Invicta brood can support two ants at level 3.
I get that they should be simple, but fire ants are more cost efficient and Atta and Rufa ants have better dps. I don’t think buffing their stats would work because of this. Maybe make it so that they can have a third ability slot, or be able to pick between any combination of their four abilities (example: self repair and self preservation at the same time). One idea for another ability is doing more damage to enemy ants specifically, so you could use them as their own little hit squad to mess with enemy supply lines during free play. Or, they could be able to have a ridiculously high harvest amount, like 30 or something, so you can use them to gather food quickly. Either way, Fusca need to be more independent from other ants, as they are a sort of all rounder but still need an incentive to using them.

Perhaps but that is kind of the point. They need to bring something that the other species cannot, and so I think having a broken ability with bad combat stats would work out

black ants are essentially the tutorial ants & so being simple allows you to focus on learning the game rit large. I get that there is a sunk cost with your persistent colony but as I remember there is a point in which you have a chance half way thought to restart your colony where in you are free to not even use black ants at all.

In the formicarium? Of course you could not use them (the first experiment has an achievement tied to not using black ants) but my idea was to give them a use.
