Hi everyone,

As you may have noticed today, "The Party's Starting" Leaderboard event will be ending earlier than scheduled in the game. We deeply apologize for the scheduling error and will be making adjustments to the game to help players progress in the event.

* For the remainder of the event, Leaderboard Points will drop at 2x the rate.
* A special quest "Take the Lead!" will reward 1,200 Leaderboard Points. Please visit your Goal Book to accept this reward.

We are excited to celebrate Dragon Story's 6th birthday and sincerely appreciate your continued love and support for the game. As an expression of our appreciation, we have a gift for you! Please visit your Goal Book in the game to accept a special Dragon.

I gotta give them credit - this was a decent way to handle the situation in my opinion. I love getting special dragons for free :)

I didn't get the Stormie Dragon but I did put in a ticket to support. Hopefully it'll come to my collection.

My nests were full at the time and I clicked without thinking. I was sure I'd lost him but after I force closed, he was waiting in my storage.

Just a heads up: my nests were full when I collected Stormie so I chose "View Nest" and the egg went into storage :D

You have to go into your goal book. It's at the bottom of the list and marked "New".

Got the guy in storage. Freed up a nest and put Stormie in there and it was an instant hatch. I wonder what the evo time is on this one and is it a Super Rare.

It will auto correct when you collect points...mine did the same.

So how will boosts figure in on this change?

2x boost before collecting 1200 for a quick 2400.

Yes, don't forget to buy the boost first!

Darn I didn't know I was collecting it I would have 2x boost. Shaking my head. These crazy changes are truly unfair. I'm sure I'll go from first to 9th. This is ridiculous

Oh yes it's booster points magnified: one can really get ahead in LB if you visit this forum page first :D ★

Evolution time is 8 hours.

I legitimately thought I was going crazy when I saw there were only 21 hours left because I thought there were days left. I am glad this has been clarified. Thanks for the free gift!

Even though the time was shortened this was a nice surprise to get in the game. Thanks S8.

I know I have been busy the last few days and not playing as much as usual but I didn?t think I just missed 4 days of my life lol

Well, I had a whole plan that involved evolving a Diamond type dragon. That's not going to happen now. I kind of appreciate the additional points but I'm not sure I will get to the final milestone in time. I may if I buy boosts but that's gold and requires money. I will willing to use gold before but I am getting increasingly leery. I used to mostly spend gold on new habitats now I find myself increasingly needing gold just to complete goals. So many goals are impossible to achieve without gold - not hard, impossible.

As an android user, even if I breed 24/7, I will not get the second monthly dragon because I need to breed for 33.3 days and of course the timer for that is never correct - right now is says we have 33 more days but I know that's not right because it no longer allows you to collect until the timer runs out. Storm8 will try to tell you that's how it has always been but I KNOW I got the Klaus dragon with about 4 hours left on the timer.

The World Event is impossible to complete (get the last dragon) without gold. I have one breeding den, two hatching nests and two evolution temples, along with 7 farms and that plus fighting dragons plus collecting from the item still has me falling short by about 400 points.

Now, randomly ending a Leaderboard event early? I am just about done paying to play this game. It was my one guilty pleasure to spend money on but it is no longer worth it, especially not at the level I used to pay at.

Great job with the compensation! Shows that S8 really do care about their players and are sorry for the mistake. Keep up the good work and hopefully no more glitches in future!

Will it end in about 19hours just before the next event starts or are there chances time will be shortened again?
Actually it seems it will end an hour or two after the other starts right?

Don’t really mind about having less days, but why did the end time have to change Elsa please tell us. Now it will finish in the middle of the night this is unfair and I hope it is not going to stay at that time next time. The leaderboard was the only event worth playing now that the others have become too hard. My chances now are lousy, when I was in second place, I am very disappointed.

Thanks so much for this. I was able to catch your comment and ensured I used a boost first before doing anything! Really impressed that S8 managed to finally do something great like this to make up for the poopy issue!

So will the regular update start when this LB is over? The timing is kind of wacky. This event ends at 4:00 PM EST but typically it's 1:30 PM EST.

serpentray

Don’t really mind about having less days, but why did the end time have to change Elsa please tell us.

I'm also very curious about this... My expectations are starting to go up that the next event might be special instead of just another 350k-apple-requiring Tales!

So, we lose 4 days off the leaderboard then there is no regular update today? I?m confused

Same here! Just now noticed the button for more points ... missed the boost but I wasn't in contention for 1st or 2nd anyway. I did get the final milestone dragon so happy overall :)

ETA: darn, after a closer look, a boost would have put me in second. I'm thinking many players have not figured out the gift yet.

Nada on my game either... perhaps they're going to force an update?

Typically the update hits a half hour after the previous one ends.

The gift is nice, but what means most to me is S8 acknowleging their mistake and apologizing. Thank you for that

04-07-18, 06:57 AM
The gift was nice, but if every player is given the same amount of leaderboard points, then it doesn’t help much. I guess to get the milestone prizes, but when the top people are getting 20-30k points anyway, that doesn’t matter. I just don’t care for theses events!
