Think this is absoulty unfair to those that don't have and feel sorry for those people. How can TL bring out a tree dragon which takes 26 HOURS to breed and which it will undoubtably give you multiple times as a fail on trying to get a quetzal!!! If they wanted remove this dragon then they should have done so before releasing the tree dragon so at least you didn't have to be the luckiest person in the world to breed one. I am so glad I got my 3 before the tree dragon came out but I really don't think this game is being fair to its loyal players and just wants to extract gold/money in any possible way. Very disappointing ��

So not fair! I have been playing this game since it came out and I still don't have a diamond dragon! I have gotten almost every limited dragon now other than the passion and now it looks like I'm going to miss out on the quetzal because I have been unable to breed a diamond and I'm not willing to spend $100 USA dollars on a picture! So I guess I'm gong to miss out on this dragon. I guess this is one way to make people jump and spend money to just get the dragon outright. I'm not rich and can't spend that kind of money for a picture on my phone 😒

If I'm reading the genius' mind, we're gonna get a red single colored dragon with a long breeding time that's gonna be seasonal.. Crusader will be a hard breed with this release with longer fail times.. And den before that seasonal red dragon goes LE, TL does the same thing by first making Crusader LE..

Genius..

Well this STINKS. I am one of those "lucky" level 94 players who STILL doesn't have a diamond. Therefore, no quetzal, ever.

I agree with a previous poster who said this game is just getting stressful. :(

I sure hope these 3 are gonna be LE.. Hahaha.. I'm pretty new to the game.. But I can say these 3 breeds probably make up 30-40% of my breeds.. It's magical, such that as long as they are one of the possible dragons to be bred with whatever combination I throw in, one of these 3 bound to appear.. Oh, and coral and fruitful.. Probably these 5 make up 50% of all my dragons breeding..

But fat hope I guess..

The short answer: to keep the Market clean with all the new Dragons we have been releasing.

We can't really go into detail about that, but a lot of it is based on player feedback.

I call for TL to make a poll with all the dragons listed where you can only vote once and see which dragons we would like to be removed. Can almost bet ya the fruitful would be first to go.

I wish I have read about quetzal going LE. I have just placed my night and pearl in the breeding den. I don't want to rush it. I wonder whose feedback did they read about getting rid of quetzal. I know everyone was expecting dawn tree next on the timer. I'm on the verge of quitting this game. I'm so disappointed.

Quetzal Dragon is now limited. Hopefully, everyone will be able to hatch one before it's gone! We do appreciate your feedback on the decision to make this limited and we will pass it along to our game team. Thank you! :)

Past like that's possible what with the splitting and the difficulty of getting a diamond to get this one it'll be impossible unless of course some one wants to spend hard earned money on a game for something super difficult to get in the first place. Not to mention that passing on info to the game designers helps for anything other than TL profit since android and kindle still don't have parity.

Its just plain dumb to make a dragon limited that never was any sort of seasonal release. Bet they see a decrease in gold buying with tactics like this. I have one but the move is still boneheaded. Lets just start removing all dragons after 3 days so we can get some consistency. Hey why not just make dragons never intended to be limited, limited now.... Oh wait. Dumb, dumb, and dumb

This diamond hybrid not suppose to be not a limited dragon and i'm so sad for this, until now i haven't have diamond and it means i will not have all the dragon hybrid

RotomGuy
04-29-13, 10:06 PM
What. The.

Of all the dragons TL could of chosen to "stop clutter", a Diamond hybrid was possibly the worst choice. This being my favourite of the lot, and me not having a Diamond yet, knowing ill never get it this one is a really hard kick.

I have always tried to keep playing but this might be the notion to make me quit.

This is rather disappointing, I'm level 55 and one of those unfortunate ones who haven't joined the diamond club (despite my best efforts) so I have no way of acquiring this dragon except with buying it and at a price tag of over $100 when others have got it for free is a bit of a no brainer decision. If this was an attempt to increase sales of gold they need to take a look at their marketing team because this is a bad idea. When you could spend $5 here and there to speed up the last few hours on a dragon you do it more often. When that price doubles you tend to go "I think I'll wait for this one". If it's a decline in gold sales that has driven this limited edition of an otherwise permanent part of the collection (as now there will not be a Diamond/green hybrid) then maybe they should have a look at the comments, people are more willing to part with dollars when they can justify it, a few dollars here and there at an attainable goal is ok. Big spending for one dragon that is not a necessity is an unrealistic way to think this will encourage loyal players to part with their hard earned money.

I thought that the forum players was the only place where users could say what they like and what they dislike. I m wondering where could you see that players dont want quetzal anymore instead of here? just asking.


In their dreams....

So charms, corals, the original magic, island, firestorm, etc couldnt be removed to make room for the new dragons? Such baloney. I used to come to these forums for humor. Now with each passing day and mishap, I'm walking away with indigestion.

The short answer: to keep the Market clean with all the new Dragons we have been releasing.

There's a lot of factors that go into deciding which Dragons we choose to become limited. We can't really go into detail about that, but a lot of it is based on player feedback. While there may be plenty of you out there who may not be happy with the Quetzal Dragon now being limited, just remember that the forums represent only a small fraction of all of our players. Best of luck in getting the dragon while you still can! :)


I have to laugh. No, really I do. I don't understand what "keeping the market clean" means either. You know a great solution, would be to go back to releasing 1 dragon per week, instead of 3.
Maybe finishing a feature or 2 and releasing to everybody ontime.

I also don't understand what feedback you could possibly have received that said "PLEASE TL, GET RID OF THE DIAMOND HYBRIDS" unless people are emailing support with this absurd request?

If you need to make room, Why not get rid of stuff like magic? or island? or poison? the list goes on.

This is just something else.

Yeah and this fraction is getting smaller and smaller. Keep it up.
You guys continue to disappoint your players on a weekly basis now.
Don't stop now. You're doing a great job.
Hi-fives all around.

I have been lucky enough to get a diamond, then all the new dragons came, so I didn't have time to breed hybrids (expensive habitats need to come from somewhere), and now I find out that a ultra rare hybrid is becoming limited. Great choice team lava. Keep this up and you will get a lot of 1 star reviews. Pour choice of timing!

Ok ill remember that the forums represent only a small fraction of all your players, so could you tell us how the large fraction who fed back to you that they want this dragon limited actually voice their opinions to TL...

Is there another forum somewhere that holds votes on which dragons to limit next?

I thought the official forums was the place to ask questions and provide feedback but seems that's not the case

This large faction of players that are happy to see the Quetzal leave the game are they by any chance all IOS players who spend hundreds of dollars a week to keep ahead of the changes they secretly vote for?

Maybe people NOT buying Quetzal from the market is how TL collects information that people want it removed? lol

Sad thing is there wil be a lot of people who will buy Quetzal.

Yeah I know, but I won't be 1 of them!
Suddenly I think the diamond temple was a sign for this. I mean think about it. they release a temple that increases chances with 6x... (still no garantee and it only lasts for 7 days -_-' ) and now this.
Just feels like this: ""Oh look they're not buying our diamond hybrids, lets release this building. Oh they're not buying that either?? Start removing the hybrids! That'll teach em!""
If I don't have a Diamond by the end of his week, I'm going to quit... Seriously. I wanted a quetzal - dark angel - unicorn - anubis dragon for so long. And now they're starting to limit hybrids...
Team Lava. You're losing players like this. End this money pit scandal and give all the players the same chance on obtaining dragons. Make diamond easier to get.

04-30-13, 01:04 AM
As someone who still doesn't have a diamond, this is rather upsetting. Unless the dragon was supposed to be a reference to the 2012 would be doomsday, making it limited doesn't make a lot of sense, especially since its simply a diamond/primary color hybrid.

kis1
04-30-13, 01:08 AM
Who knows how much next weeks limited dragon will cost...

It's just a vicious limited dragon circle that must end...

It started with seasonal dragons being limited, and up to a point I could see the sense in that, and players knew when a Halloween or valentines dragon came out it would be for a limited time.

I guess a lot of money was made out of people panic buying the limited dragon when they realised they weren't going to be lucky enough to breed it...

So a Diamond temple appears, then a gold sale appears, then WHAM diamond hybrid limited...

This is the start of a very slippery slope, and the ONLY way to stop it is to NOT buy gold to get the dragon...

If you do then you are saying, it's ok to do this, and lets be honest it isn't ok :(

04-30-13, 01:20 AM
This is just RIDICULOUS!!! and possibly all diamond hybrids going LE as well.Another bad move TL! They said theyre doing this to make

space on market because they know that there`s so many dragons but how come they dont increase the habitats?!!! Why quetzal how

about that ugly dawntree instead?or the ugly magic,coral,fruitful! TL you guys are making your players very unhappy!

MonkeyMomma76
04-30-13, 01:24 AM
I think it is categorically unfair to make a standard issue dragon suddenly "limited" in the market. Any dragon that has a short availability should be CLEARLY identified as such when it is introduced so players know which ones they need to focus on. I have been trying to get Mask ever since it came out, but with the ridiculous splitting rates of pink and black I am really starting to lose hope :-(( I only started doing Quetzal because all my purple habitats were full and so I needed a break.

TL is seriously making their customer base very cranky with all these changes. Instead of just flooding the market with tons of new product every week, they should focus on improving the general quality of gameplay experience for ALL their customers. They should address parity before all these other "improvements" (and I say that with total sarcasm!)

Good luck to those who haven't gotten theirs.. well, I guess ios users can try to use the diamond temple to increase their chances. Android and kindle are getting hit harder.

Is it hard to craft ?

I am breeding diamond with forest . Ok i got forest 3 times but who cares, in 30 sec it is ready and you can start again . On 4th attempt i got dawntree. Now i speed up dawntree and wonder on which attempt i should get quetzal

Thanks for the reply, but I doubt anyone wanted Quetzal to go so how TL got that from our feedback is hard to accept... like you said,

''just remember that the forums represent only a small fraction of all of our players''

Not one person on this forum can believe Quetzal is next to go, we all thought and wanted Dawn Tree to go next so that Quetzal was easier to get. A lot of people were actually waiting for Dawn Tree to go so they could try again for Quetzal...

TL never listens to us and this move , along with TD buy/breed and not increasing habitats is going to make a lot of players quit! I think it's about time JakeStorm8 came here and gave us information.

I don't want to hear about a new type of dragon next week if it means we have to lose another Diamond hybrid! We want android up to date, all iOS features to everyone and breed cost same with half the hours. This game is not what it used to be, the person in charge needs to think really hard about what he is doing to this awesome game.

Totally agree with everything you said

Unless you're trying to get a Treasure because you like the way it looks, it's a terrible deal. Even at epic level it will take months to break even. And I wouldn't want to bet that I'll be here very long. I don't want to tell you what to do, I'm just saying.

Anyway, I have another theory. I do believe that they are making this difficult on purpose with Dawntree.

But think about the Diamond Temple. What good is that thing once you have all the hybrids? That's why I didn't buy one, I knew it would eventually be useless. Maybe they're going to release a new Green/Diamond hybrid to address that problem.

I'm not saying that's an especially good reason, but it makes sense in a way. They could believe they're actually helping keep the game interesting. Unfortunately, players aren't taking it that way.

And one more thing.

Guys, I know the idea of removing common dragons has become popular with this news. But taking out all the common dragons would ruin breeding. I know you may be thinking about how frustrated you are with that millionth Fruitful/Firestorm/etc, and that's understandable. But without common dragons, breeding wouldn't work. If only rare and super rare dragons existed, then they wouldn't be all that rare.

Okay I can mostly agree with that. And if they behaved like seasonal dragons, then once they're gone they won't be in the album anymore if you don't have them. Then it would still be possible for players to get a full album.

This is so unbelievable that at First i thought pop up was introducing sale on Quetzal, Its so sad that It soon will be gone, there are lots of people who does not have it, TL makes unfear decisions lately, but removing Diamond hybrit just in 3 days is the best them all, brilliant. Seriously do u believe people will manage to breed it, especialy with tree out? Its your game TL, your rules and we all have choice not to accept it, but be honest to us, give us appropriate time to breed ultra rare dragon

To be blunt, this is bull. Making room for new dragons?? That's a load of lies. This is purely another TL gold trap. "Oh no!! Quetzel will be gone! I have to buy it and spend real money" is what they want you to say. And why? Because TL has been spending more than they are making. STOP!!! TL, make one new dragon every other Thursday - 2 dragons a month. Then you will spend less and have more satisfied players.

I have quetzal already, but if other diamonds that I don't have go limited them I'm out. It's a joke and why woukdninolay some pathetic game where I am unhapp? TL doesn't care about its players - they only care about their player's bank accounts.

This is unfair. How can i get an ultra rare in 2 days time with a failure chance of 26 hours (dawntree). This is not cool TL. Quetzal is not seasonal dragon nor limited in the first place. Why you guys intend to remove it? I see a lot of my neibours quit playing this game. Maybe they are fed up with the way you twisted things lately! Pls TL bring back DS to normal.

Quetzal Dragon is now limited. Hopefully, everyone will be able to hatch one before it's gone! We do appreciate your feedback on the decision to make this limited and we will pass it along to our game team. Thank you! :)

I don't understand why this is being eliminated, but my biggest concern and complaint is that even though I've had my diamond for a few months now I kept concentrating on all the seasonal and limited dragons that ended up being available for months longer than originally thought. We should at least be given a couple of weeks to get Quetzal, not just two days. This is not at all unreasonable! I buy gold off and on but in large amounts when I really want a dragon, so I can speed up breedings etc. I don't buy the dragons because the whole point of the game is to try and breed them. I would spend a lot less gold just buying them than I spent actually playing the game. Please give us a reasonable amount of time to get a dragon that you all of a suddenly decide to randomly get rid of. Otherwise there is no reason to play this game if we don't have reasonable notice when a particular dragon is leaving so we can concentrate on it.

My success rare, pairing diamond with forest:

3 forest dragon
Then a dawntree
6 more forest dragon
Then the quetzal

I agree. 3 or 4 days is not enough. Especially with the Dawn tree fail. I could see it being quick without it, but not anymore.

Yeesh, TL really wants all the free players to quit, that's for sure. I've been losing interest since the impossible night hybrids came out and haven't even bothered trying for mythic or cosmic and their dumb 6 million habitats that only hold 5000 coins (I have 45 million coins but it's the principle of the matter). I have a quetzal already so I'll be trying for the gold/mercury/angel dragons for the foreseeable future. As soon my dark angel wizard fail gets out of the den, anyway.

This is my first time coming to this forum in eight months of playing Dragon Story. I literally, finally, just got my Diamond Dragon over the weekend. Now you're discontinuing an end game hybrid, a REGULAR SERIES DRAGON, not a seasonal, but a REGULAR dragon that players strive to have after finally breaking into the diamond class. This decision makes no sense, nor do your explanations. Eight months to get my diamond dragon and now you cancel the regular diamond hybrids? You've churned out far more new dragons than necessary lately, PLEASE don't get rid of the end game dreams of so many players.

I got mine after clearing 5 Dawn Tree fails and clearing out my nests and breeding den ( which had the cosmic dragon YAY ), cost me around 300g to do it. I would've been able to buy a Clockwork Dragon, which is not obtainable to me otherwise. Ugh, TL really screwed up making this limited with such a short timer. I shouldn't have had to do that, I should have been able to get the Clockwork Dragon ( I have a problem with this as well as I should've been able to obtain it somehow, but this is another issue ).

Poor communication once again by TL. I really wish they'd let us know what they are trying to accomplish, right now they're accomplishing confusion and frustration.

04-30-13, 08:54 AM
From everything I have read about this, my understanding is that the reason is because the quetzal was evaluated as being the next best choice. But on what grounds? Because it has a low bred rate? And would that be because it's so difficult for people to get the diamond dragon to be able to breed any of its hybrids?

Why take away a dragon that was not limited or seasonal? What makes anyone think it is fair to take away a dragon that was NOT labeled as limited?

Does this mean that with the release of all these dozens of pointless dragons, such as the dawn tree dragon, that you're going to get rid of the forest dragon? Is the peacock replacing magic? Does this sound ridiculous? Because to me, it sounds the same as getting rid of the quetzal dragon. There isn't even another diamond/forest hybrid. Or is that coming with the 52 new dragons you'll release in May? Or maybe you'll remove diamond altogether!

Why did you change the pace of releasing dragons? Months ago, it used to be fine.

04-30-13, 09:03 AM
Does this mean Anibus will be the next do go? They added Dawntree as a new Quetzal fail and the only other element like that right now is Magic with the new Peacock fail.

Exactly how I feel, I've yet to get my diamond and obviously looked forward to breeding the hybrids but now what's the point if they're going to be discontinuing diamond's hybrids, ....makes no sense to me. What's next to go, because it's obviously not just seasonal content anymore? It's all very disappointing to say the least.

krissy5000
04-30-13, 09:17 AM
I don't think this move has anything at all to do with customer feedback, that just makes no sense at all. What, have masses of players been emailing TL to ask them to remove the Quetzal dragon? I really doubt that's the case, and that's not why this is happening. I think some players probably got it right earlier in the thread, that it's about switching these diamond hybrids out for new ones that are lower-earning and need lots more food, to keep the game challenging. That, to me, makes a ton of sense and is actually pretty reasonable. I just wish they'd tell us as much, or even something close, instead of treating us like we're stupid.

Also, the way they went about this was really terrible, in giving us no notice at all. Before this one we didn't even know it was an option to lose dragons that didn't start out as limited, so to have this sprung on us now is pretty unfair, and just seems like a gold grab. The sad part is, it's gonna work.

This is just RIDICULOUS!!! and possibly all diamond hybrids going LE as well.Another bad move TL! They said theyre doing this to make

space on market because they know that there`s so many dragons but how come they dont increase the habitats?!!! Why quetzal how

about that ugly dawntree instead?or the ugly magic,coral,fruitful! TL you guys are making your players very unhappy!

Dairenna
04-30-13, 11:30 AM
I tried for most of last night getting the Quetzal but I'm lucky enough to have a diamond.

What about the players that DON'T? I know when I first started and saw how difficult diamond and it's hybrids were to get it gave me cause to want to breed them. I thought it was cool that there was this special color that you could focus on at the end of the game. END OF THE GAME, meaning once you had all the duel color, non-splitting types. Meaning once you had the extra gold to spend on habitats and food because it's darned expensive. You know, END OF THE GAME.

Quetzal WAS NEVER marked as seasonal so should NOT be the next one going. If anything it should have been Dawntree.

Besides, if you want to keep the marketplace clean, STOP MAKING A NEW DRAGON (or two) EVERY WEEK! There are still TONS of people on here who are working on getting the full set (114 for IOS, 84 for Android), we don't need a dragon every week. It takes long enough to breed one a month when it's new.

What we NEED are features across all platforms all being up to date. That means Kindle and Android players being able to do what IOS players can do. What we NEED is a less stressful, money-grabbing game that's fun again. Every time a new dragon goes limited I have to drop whatever I'm doing to try and get it. that's NOT fun. It's freaking annoying.

STOP LIMITING DRAGONS, especially when they're part of an actual set that's not even seasonal. I can understand Easter and the Passion set because both those holidays are gone. Heck, I understand the Halloween and thanksgiving Dragons being gone.

What I can't understand is breaking the set of a dragon only SOME players have. This is THE WORST decision made by TL so far, espcially since we're only given TWO DAYS. People who don't have the diamond have to hope they can breed one first try, speed it up, then hope they DON'T get a Dawntree. How is that even possible?

And a question, if we're a small percentage of players, where are all the others? Do you have some super secret website out there where people can leave feedback? BTW, even the SMALLEST percentage of players should count for something and I find it hard to believe that ANY player (besides the guy with six of the Quetzal up there) would want a diamond hybrid to disappear.

TL is just money-grabbing. First they overlapped the timers on limited edition dragons and started sweepstakes, then they re-designed the timers ( stopclock ) and market to be MORE of a gold trap. It's extremely shady business tactics to trick you into spending gold / real money, instead of genuinely offering content that is purchase worthy. Definitely sad the game is turning out this way.

My Diamond dragon won't even be able to breed by the time the Quetzal is gone.

I agree with you! I would love to have this dragon. I'm just so tired of trying over and over just to get the same ridiculous long fails. I'm just not going to stress about it ever again. I feel if they are going to retire a dragon they could at least make it easier to get in those last few days. And I don't want to spend another dime on something that I have no chance of breeding. I refuse to buy the dragons because that just takes the fun and the challenge out of it. So frustrating

I feel like I'm having d?j? vu.... where have I experienced this before? Oh yeah! Back when everyone played FarmVille! Haha It was once the most popular game on Facebook; now I don't know anyone who still plays it. Seems like DS is following in their footsteps. FV also started out challenging, but fun; with goals that required lots of game play but were attainable, much like DS. But, when they started to constantly release new content that took forever to earn or required "hefty" amounts of real money for limited edition items, it didn't take long for the popularity to die. It was criticized for "being designed to create an atmosphere of negativity, requiring an unprecedented commitment to the game, and encouraging users to exploit their friends." I'm so sad that DS seems to be doing the same thing! :( at least games like FV have objectives that can be attained when the required actions are taken; in DS it's all "luck", and no matter how much you play you may NEVER reach your goals. Suddenly, the goals that some of us have been working towards for more than a year are being taken away (and with little- to no notice)! It doesn't seem like a good business strategy to me, but I'm not a game designer. I guess we'll have to see how this plays out for them.

No real addressing of the massive amount concern, frustration, and anger. No taking on of the numerous well-constructed arguments contained in these pages. No engaging with the public, except to delete posts that they find troublesome. I do not understand how you can do this and think it a good practice.

04-30-13, 01:25 PM
Dear TL,

I'm gonna start off by saying thx for all the new dragons, they're coming in a bit too fast though and considering they eat as much as they do I'm suggesting you're adding them all so fast to get more people to buy more gold. I think you could check your records and see that I'm one of those who bought alot of gold at times. However I'm gonna critizise you (TL, Storm8) for exactly what the topic of my thread says; you're removing dragons as fast as you're adding new ones. Now of course the seasonal dragons which were the ones you removed first was logic, absolutely no harm done there, but now you're removing the Quetzal Dragon which is the only diamond-forest-hybrid; so it seems like you will remove all the diamond dragons? It doesn't really make any sense already even before I've gotten down to the point, does it?

My point is you're evening out the number of dragons in the game instead of increasing them, and I'm sorry to say that it's not only a bad idea, but in fact the thought behind it all is also bad business ethics. Now you'll probably think I'm some dumb-*** kid, but that doesn't matter because we all know that's not true. Then again, I'm also one of those customers you really don't wanna lose.

So after all this whining (but also with questions I would like an answer to) I'm gonna get down to my last point.
Goodbye & thank you for the time when Dragon Story was well worth every penny.

That's even MORE disappointing statement to me then the sudden abrubt removal of Quetzal to the game! What you are basically telling the fanbase is that TL is intentionally deceiving it's customers in order to attempt to get MORE gold purchases from them(By stating it is limited edition and to get it before it vanishes), and then will likely boost it's cost and feeding when you bring it back to make additional money from those who didn't bite on the first invite.

If you wanted to be honest with your fanbase, the banner could have said Quetzal was going on a "relaxing vacation" instead of trying to manipulate people into buying the dragon ASAP.

In a way that's slimy too. They let us believe that it's going away forever, which means more people panicked to snag one.

Or maybe they actually listened to us and revised their original plan.

I don't know which I believe.

I don't think they expected so many of us to be annoyed with this and decided not to take it away completely... I hope they don't do this to the other Diamond hybrids too.

Hmm. So now the question is, was Quetzal always going to return or is this a course correction due to overwhelming negative feedback?

It is a response to feedback. We didn't quite realize how much Quetzal would be missed! We hope that Quetzal's vacation is good news for those who want more opportunities to earn this Dragon in the future. We don't know when the vacation will end, so those that don't want to wait may want to snap him up now. But, he will eventually return to the game.

Yeah and I've never done it before either but this one wasn't seasonal or tied to any holiday. What are we supposed to believe? Do I assume the pop-up saying that Quetzal going away is a lie and won't return? And really... if it's going away when would it make sense to bring it back? I'd probably say since it's Mayan looking, then it will be brought back once the new Mayan calendar comes out...

They let us believe Quetzal was leaving forever. What if that was never the plan? It's a win-win for TL. They get the initial panic purchases AND they get to pat themselves on the back because they listened to the community feedback.

Why does it NEED a vacation? Not only is it the sole Diamond + Green hybrid, but it's not linked to any holiday at all. It's been around since "Ancient History" so why on Earth would it disappear now? Use your head once every hundered years or so, Team Lava.

As long as the breeding has begun before the timer runs out, you're ok. You won't loose it. Even if it's 1 minute til the timer runs out when you see the 32 hour breed time, you still get your quetzal.

Have a nice vacation Quetzal, hope TL treat you a trip to Cancun, because I know TL could afford it & you deserve it :) Enjoy your vacation & don?t worry about rush back until the **** tree ? Dawn tree? is gone :P Just make sure you are coming back.

Whatever the excuse is. I?m applaud the decision that you are making TL. Like I said before I don?t really care about Quetzal 1: I already have this dragon. 2: Personally I think Quetzal is the worse designed of all the diamond hybrid, however some player find it loveable. Anyhow this dragon never mean to leave DS since it was introduced so we like to keep it that way.

I can?t speak for other, What I want as a player is I want to trust a company that I been put my real money in to supporting it. Well it?s by choice, it?s a free game we all know that. But without a group of true loyal $$$ supporter, there won?t be too many free update to keep the free player entertain. There for I hope this is a lesson to be learn from all of us. If there is a change like that ever happen again I truly hope TL will communicate with us, maybe there?s a programming issue that need to make those necessary change who know. Just give us a chance to voice our opinions.

We can?t complain about if we can?t get a limited dragon in time. Because it is what it is, limited means limited if we can?t get it too bad. However, if a dragon introduced as a breedable & is not a limited dragon please keep that way. TL just need to keep their words & stand behind their products that?s all we are asking.

Last but not least please look into the Double cost for some of us. We never got a good explanation about it. Is it going to stay that way or there is a chance it going to reverse? That?s all I need to know. I just don?t get how TL going to benefit from doing it. Because I already stop speed breeding since the cost went double, it taking 40 gold for a Magic failure is just insane?Maybe there is people could afford to do so, but not me & I believe there?s not too many.

Wow....Quetzal is been removed, now it's gonna be returned, eventually...due to feedback! I'm sorry but I have to say this, after 130+ pages (if I remember correctly) of feedback regarding the price hikes in Bakery Story nothing *absolutely nothing* was done by TL to fix that, our feedback must not have been good enough at that time but 42 pages of feed back on Dragon Story is enough to get things sorted? I won't hold my breath for Quetzal's return, is a matter of fact it doesn't really matter anymore to me, trying to decipher and second guess everything is just getting old. All very unnecessary if you ask me, this all just makes me feel tired of the game/s and doesn't entice me to play. I feel like these days I just log into the games, get what I need done and get out....what a shame.

How unfair that the quetzal dragon is now limited. I've wasted nearly all my time on the diamond temple TRYING to get this dragon. I've also wasted 250 plus gold to skip thru all the annoying dawn tree dragons I keep getting & I still haven't gotten my quetzal dragon yet. The only dragon hybrid I got with the diamond temple was the crusader dragon & that took me 134 tries. It seems like everyone else except for me has the best luck in getting rare dragons. Every time I breed for something I want it always seems to end up taking ten times longer than everyone else...and now that this dragon is limited it just further makes me even more disappointed with this game. I was so excited to start breeding for all the diamond hybrids once I got my diamond dragon(which I unfortunately bought btw) & it now seems like I'm going to waste even more gold trying to get this dragon before its gone. I guess they're probably going to make all the other diamond hybrids limited too. It honestly doesn't even make any sense because these dragons are almost impossible to get in the first place.

Some people just have gold to spend. The announcement isn't going to be updated and even if it isn't going to updated, who cares? We have our answer and if regular players have a brain, they'd check the forums first before buying random []. Otherwise, their loss.

Well, 650 gold later of speeding up dawn tree dragons I finally got my quetzal dragon. I'm so happy I could cry! I only have 2 hours and 49 minutes left on my diamond temple. That was very frustrating dragon to obtain I must say. It seems like I always have to work so hard for my dragons. I've never gotten one of my dragons easily like where my friends have gotten theirs on their 2nd or 3rd try. I wonder why I'm so unlucky? ;-;

So I guess it's lucky for me the quetzal wasn't still on vacation, or they'd be hearin' some feedback from me too!

You learn to be patient or lose gold unnecessarily. The instant I got my diamond several months ago, I started making Quetzals. I currently have 8. Instead of trying to make Quetzals now you should have been working on making Crusaders before they depart. They, too, are very easy to make. They likely targetted Quetzal first because it earns the most coins and I suggested breeding a park full of them for coins.

Your actions are far too predictable. Quetzal will be back and you have pointlessly wasted gold that would have sped up 20 Quetzals.

Good to know our (irate) feedback has reached the team. :)

Thing is, like someone has stated before (who was it? i would quote but don'trenember) diamond hybrids are that ultimate goal, that you go for after you have managed to get all others - or almost - because they're supposed to always be there and be very, very hard to get.
They're supposed to be quite a challenge and a nice reward.
especially with the annoying one-element extra fails, I have a feeling there will be more single-elements

Besides, Quetzal has a cool design, in my opinion.

Indeed the best - to "make room" for new dragons - would be to get of the seasonals, which have been fairly predictable (&thank tou for leaving them on for longer than the Halloween ones), and then some of the more common dragons with overly-seen designs, like island, fruitful, charm, coral, love, etc, and bring in a new bunch of commons.

That's ultra rare pony. Don't mess with the ultra eared. All for making firestorm a limited dragon say "I"

I'm more for island and fruitful and charm and coral. At least firestorm looks pretty cool as epic.

I am just wondering, Has anyone gotten a quetzal since it became limited?

For example, me. After One dawntree i made One. Currently One more dawntree is "under construction", then should try further until it goes away (for a second One).

I am just wondering, Has anyone gotten a quetzal since it became limited?

About 3 hours ago I bred a diamond and forest and got 2 days/ 32 gold. So I was very excited because I thought it was a quetzal. But when I just went to check it I am now getting 23 hours/24 gold. It's only been three hours since I put the egg in the nest. I don't know if it was a glitch and now I'm not sure that its a quetzal.

It's a dawn tree. That's what mine says whenever I get dawn tree. 2 days because it takes more than 1 day to breed (1 day and 2 hours). 32 gold because of the double gold price increase for speed breeding (26 x 2).

I was lucky, my gold prices never increased. When I paired the diamond and forest I checked the egg chart to make sure 32 gold=quetzal which it did. But three hours later when I went back in to collect coins I checked the breeding den again and it said 23 hours 23 gold. I was so mad because I feel like I had a quetzal at first but then TL took it away because the dragon is now LE. I don't think that's fair and I no what I saw as for the breeding time when I checked it 2 times!!

You learn to be patient or lose gold unnecessarily. The instant I got my diamond several months ago, I started making Quetzals. I currently have 8. Instead of trying to make Quetzals now you should have been working on making Crusaders before they depart. They, too, are very easy to make. They likely targetted Quetzal first because it earns the most coins and I suggested breeding a park full of them for coins.

Your actions are far too predictable. Quetzal will be back and you have pointlessly wasted gold that would have sped up 20 Quetzals.

I highly doubt I will ever get 20 quetzals. My game seems to be messed up in the fact that every dragon I try to bred I only ever get ONE of and they ALWAYS end up taking weeks and weeks to breed where as my friends end up getting several on their 2nd or third or even fourth try. Quetzal says limited. Who knows when it will come back. With all the unfair moves TL has been doing lately I doubt it would be anytime soon.

I already have a crusader dragon, that was my first hybrid. It also took me 134 tries to get. I counted every single time. My quetzal dragon was around the same, only it was worse because of all the annoying dawn tree dragons...

It doesn't matter what I do, I have to try REALLY hard for all of my dragons otherwise I DON'T get them because they always end up disappearing. Example the zombie dragon I wanted more than anything, but I have to wait all the way til Halloween for another one.

While I think getting rid of the quetzal dragon is majorly unfair and in appropriate by TL...I'll be happy to have my quetzal when they are unfairly removed. Again I say it's absolutely Rediculous to move the ONLY GREEN DIAMOND hybrid when there ISN't any others to breed for! Not to mention not all players have a diamond dragon let alone its hybrids. They're trying to take away the one thing that WAS sure with the diamond dragons & that was breeding for its hybrids! SO VeRY wrong of them to do so.

Time to me to say that I dont care about quetzal. I dont have the diamond and with all the new dragons I m not sure that I will have it once. For the moment the game is attractive for me because I m not level 94 and I still miss about 30 dragons.
I DONT BUY GOLD ANYMORE so I take my time to breed something everyday and wait to see what happen.
Some weeks ago I was logging in several times / day and was really acting in the game (visits, comments on walls, maps, apples...) now I dont care anymore. I still visit some nice neighbors but if I cant log in one day I m not mad about it.
more and more of my neighbors are saying the same than me : game have lost its interest.

Are the others going away too? Why was it necessary to force players to buy a Diamond mine and then take away the hybrids? There are a few i'd like but not if they're going to go away, so not point in buying a mine. Either that or TD I guess.

Ok I have some weirdness happening in my DS.....I was trying to breed Quetzal before it goes bye bye, using Forest and Diamond,both epic. I was getting forest after forest and then I got a Dragon with a breed time of 26 hrs.....well it will cost me 26 gold to breed now, although the timer reads 13 hrs. I thought you could only get a quetzal from diamond/forest, not a dawntree or Pegasus? Help!

Sounds like you have 1/2 breeding times with 2 gold per hour. Lucky! Shoot for 16 hours then. 13 hours = Dawn Tree , 16 = Quetzal.

I'm pretty sure dawntree is 26 hrs. So your gold stayed the same but time is halved. You are one of the lucky ones :)

May be unrelated tp the topic, but the Flower dragon is on sale. I'm taking it's an omen of it leaving? I remember seeing some sales for certain dragons (I think they did for Quetzal too, correct me if I'm wrong) and some "package offers". But Flower is 40% off so I am wondering if it means anything?

I've bred Diamond and Forest resulting in a Dawn dragon, then a Forest dragon ... And Dawn dragon again. I'm boned as to getting that Queztzl dragon now before the deadline... Not fair when it takes so long to just get that Diamond element for combos. Maybe it'll just become a random vector in future combos?

The only hope I see is that Dawn Tree becomes limited (it was a special occasion dragon) and it goes away, then quetzal comes back.
I am only getting the Ent too. very frustrating.

I've sold two tre fungus dragons because like peacock it's useless, unless it have something special. Unlike peacock it's hideous. So thankful I got this dragon beforehand. Someone posted on their wall a prediction that fire and gold will get the magic and forest treatment. I'm afraid they may be right. It's annoying.

I'm glad he is just taking a vacation. I think limited dragons should be limited to the colors that are easily attainable by all players, that way everyone had a fair chance of getting it. I still haven't gotten a diamond and I was very upset when I saw the announcement on my game that quetzal was going away, so relieved when I came on here on saw that he'd be back.


I just got one from epic plant and epic diamond. Breeding time is 32 hours ! =)) :p:p

26 x 2 = 52..?

I'm sorry for my wrong calculation. I was thinking of 16 x 2. Contemplating now if I should speed up my dawn tree so I can try for another quetzal whiie there's still 12 hrs left on the timer. I don't trust that vacation thing.

I think it's nearly impossible to get quetzal now. I got first one months ago. and then tried once more now. For the first one, it was like one hundred of forests and finally quetzal. Now I tried and got only forest and dawn tree.
Shame.
