    Feature Overview: Dragon Battles [iOS]

    [UPDATE (6/3/13 - 3 PM PDT): The Battle Arena is now available to all iOS players with Dragon Story 1.4 and above!]

    [UPDATE (5/3/13 - 8 PM PDT): The goals for the Battle Arena have been turned back on. Please let us know if there are any issues. Thanks!]

    [UPDATE (5/3/13 - 4 PM PDT): We've turned the Battle Arena back on for the test group. The goals related to the Arena will be turned on in a few hours. Please force close your app and restart the game in order to see the feature, if you are in the test group. Thanks!]

    Greetings Dragon Aficionados,

    It is my pleasure to introduce the biggest and most exciting new feature ever released in Dragon Story: Dragon Battles!

    Over the last year we've welcomed players to send dragons on epic quests, store them in the Dragon Stables, trade them for powerful gems and use those gems to craft Gemstone Dragons, and now we invite you to send your favorite dragons into the Battle Arena to match strength and wits against dragon opponents!

    How it works...

    • After you update your game to Dragon Story 1.4, if your account was randomly selected to participate in the test release, you'll notice a new building floating to the Northeast of your main island. This is the Battle Arena!


      The Battle Arena!

    • Players levels 30+ can enter the Battle Arena and select a dragon to compete against the displayed opponent.

    • Several factors determine the strength of your dragon, including level, rarity, colors, and opponent's colors. I'll leave it up to you to determine which color combinations are strongest against which!

    • During a Dragon Battle, players can select from 3 attacks each turn. The battle is turn-based, meaning your opponent will only attack after you do. Every dragon has a magic attack corresponding to their primary element (each with a unique particle effect!), a bash attack, and the Ultimate Attack.


      Dragon Battle!

    • The Magic and Bash attacks are your primary weapons. The Ultimate Attack costs gold and does massive damage. This is for players who want to pay to assure victory.

    • Losing a match will Exhaust your dragon. Exhausted Dragons can be healed with the new Healing Spring Building available in the Market. While exhausted, dragons cannot participate in breeding, trading, evolving, questing, or battling. They will still produce coins, however.


      The Healing Spring

    • Winning a match awards you with 1 Leviathan Pearl. What good are those? Leviathan Pearls can be combined at the Spell Shop to craft the new and exclusive Leviathan Dragon! Periodically, we'll release a new reward with a corresponding new craftable dragon!


      Collect Leviathan Pearls to craft...




      The Leviathan Dragon!



    We had a great time putting this enormous feature together and think you'll have a great time playing it. I'll update this post with FAQs as your questions and comments come in, so check back!

    Play (and battle) on!

    -Jake.

    FAQ


    When will this feature be available on Android/Kindle?
    All I can say at this time is that it will be available on Android/Kindle, along with all of the backlogged features. We're working on a way to catch things up and keep them caught up. Your patience is appreciated.

    I updated and I don't see the Battle Arena, AHHHH!
    During this testing period, we're only releasing to a small group of players. Stay tuned for the larger release!

    Why are some of my dragon opponents higher than level 10?
    To challenge higher level players. Keep in mind though, the most important factor in determining your chances of victory are the colors of your dragon in relation to the opponent's colors, not the level.

    Note: Battle Area is available at level 30
    Battle Tournaments are available at level 32


    If you use Ultimate, you will win. You can use it on any hit.

    If you use it on the first hit, it might not be a One Hit Kill. You may still need to make additional moves, but you will always win.

    Since we don't know the strengths and weaknesses (assuming there are any) of the three Arctic elements, the PURPOSE OF THIS THREAD is to gather information on island champions that have beaten Arctic challengers in the arena.
    Bear in mind that victors over these challengers are not necessarily the champions with the best colors or odds. We are only seeking to MAYBE recognize some pattern of dominance, and offer suggestions to players who prefer not to randomly select champions.
    Please don't ask for suggestions on specific dragons. Just post your NON-ULTIMATE victories and search the thread for any Arctic challenger that's bugging you.

    Note: Dragons currently living on our Arctic Isles are not enabled for battle, although the arena is presenting us with Arctic challengers.
    Many players have noted that odds of winning in general seem to have been reduced since the debut of the prize dragon, Gladiator. This may be one reason that Arctics seem harder to beat; the other reason is we just don't know which colors are best against them.


    Below is a starter list of victories that I've gathered from the Gladiator thread, general Battle Arena thread, and in-game communications:

    ICE ELEMENT
    IceAge (C) < Diamond, Forest, Titan
    Meteor (C) < Diamond, Forest
    Fossil (R)< Crusader, Fire
    Cave (S) < ???
    Bedrock (S) < BlackSwan, Landworm, Leviathan

    ABOM ELEMENT
    Abominable (C) < Fruitful, Honeybee
    Sasquatch (R) < Leviathan
    Yeti (S) < Aether, Eagle
    Sabretooth (S) < Angel, Crusader, Elf, Parakeet, Storm
    Icecrown (U) < Crusader, Diamond

    BLIZZ ELEMENT
    Blizzard (R) < Athletic, Eagle, Landworm, Parakeet, Planet
    Snowflake (R) < Athletic, Diamond, Planet, Scarecrow
    Alpine (S) < Crusader, Forestfire
    Polar (S) < Lightning

    Zombie[11]{13} -> Eagle()[8], Parakeet(M)[10], Easter(MB), Diamond(MBB){10}

    --------

    To clarify how it works I want to take out a few examples:

    Crusader[11]{13}<14> -> Fire(BB)[10], Coral(M), Mindvolt(MB){10}, Atlantis(B), Crusader(MM)<9>

    This one says, that if you are currently battling a Crusader dragon of lvl 11, it has previously been beat by another player by a lvl 10 Fire dragon with a B+B combo(matching the [] brackets), if you are battling a lvl 13 Crusader draon, previously a player has been successful with using a lvl 10 Mindvolt with the M+B combo (by matching the {} brackets) - you get the idea.

    If there is ever an empty set of brackets, it is because someone forgot to put down the level/combo he used, but I added them to the list for completion.

    So if I have a popup telling me to battle, but hitting "compete" does nothing and I don't see an arena in my island area, what do I need to do?
