Pygmy Giraffe is now up, and there is a quest for it. Problem: the instructions in the quest say to breed Dark+Nature, but the store indicates the elements are Dark+Earth!

Given the coloration I would guess Dark+Earth is correct, but I'd like some confirmation.


Elsa;1064414']Hi guys. The wrong word went into the hint on the quest. It's been resolved. Please accept our humble apologies.

If you were speed breeding for this animal between 11:30am - 2:30pm pacific, please email support@teamlava.com and send me a private message with the ticket number. Please do this asap so support can try and help you before the weekend. Thanks!

I'm guessing another Dark-Fire on account it's got pink in it and pink is as close to red/fire as one can get.

Not a fan of giraffes (especially pinkish-purple ones), to be honest, so I'm not sure if I'll halt my Citrine breeding attempts for this one on Friday... :\

02-24-15, 04:38 PM
Yay for more pink in this game! Very boyish looking animal though.

Vodelle
02-24-15, 04:47 PM
Dark-fire or dark-earth? I'm kind of meh on it, but I love that it looks quite unique! (Probably won't have a chance to get it if it's a limited breedable since I'm still failing left and right on the matripony...)

02-24-15, 05:51 PM
Yeah, I looked at this and was like - I love it. It's great to see a unique animal. I'm very concerned it will be super hard to get. I'm also jaded enough with TL to be concerned that the more we like it, the harder it will be to get. I would absolutely love to see this be a tournament prize. Or maybe, a PERMANENT animal. I really hope it is.

Me likey!

I really really really really really really REALLY hope it's not going to be a FIFTH limited animal at one time. If it is, that may just be the last straw with me for this game. One or two limiteds at a time, and animals that it makes SENSE to be limited (related to something on the calendar) are fine. But if this is another palmeranian or chimpala bullcrap screw it.

If this one is limited also I'll be shocked. This game is about breeding new animals and if we're forced to constantly breed limited animals, well it's obvious that TL is plain greedy and playing unfairly.
If this really turns out to be limited, I would gladly submit a review and rate them poorly just based on their method of doing business.
With that said, I have absolutely nothing with the designers which has done a great job with the game itself, the graphics, the cute animals, the adorable animation on battles etc. but I guess it takes more than good designer to create an outstanding game.

If I understand the description properly, it could be a tournament prize. I hope it is to breed, I want 2 have, it's really beautiful and extraordinary. :D

readysetgo888
02-25-15, 08:25 AM
I'm hoping it's a permanent dark-earth animal. Dark-earth has got to be one of the most neglected combos in the game... I believe there are only 3 permanent dark-earth animals and there's only ever been a single other one (the Scarecrow back in October). I believe this will be a permanent dark-earth super rare. It's too soon for another flash tournament, they've never done a full length tournament starting on a Friday, and if this is a limited animal for no reason, I think we should all quit. I suppose it might be dark-fire, but I hope not, as there are already two permanent dark-fire super rares.

Yes I also love the tournaments, it would be nice if it could confirm Kooky Panda or team leader that there is a tournament give shall

It's out... dark-earth. No indication that it's limited, so who knows. There is a 7 day goal to breed it for 10 gems. It's on sale for 200 gems. The sale will probably last until close to the Tuesday update.

Also, the Snowpossum is now limited :(

Got the Pygmy Giraffe for 200 gems bought, it is super rare and normally sell it costs 1000 Gems

readysetgo888
02-27-15, 11:46 AM
Yeah... this "sale", with the other limited animals that are out, makes me think that buying it is probably the best option.

It's only 200 gems, no real need to speed, buying is definitely better than that. I might even buy it myself. I really like the animal and I have the saved gems.

Again, though, this is another step in the trend toward animals being for sale for real money, and not actually intended to be bred except by a lucky few. I am not a fan of this trend.

02-27-15, 11:52 AM
Is this a joke TL

So i have kitten and pony limited 3 days remaining

Mardi limited for 5 days which no one can confirm if its here to stay longer or not

Snowpossum now its also limited which i dont get why couldn't it wait 3 more days till it goes away after Valentine

Am not even excited for this animal

Cuz i tried 3 weeks breeding with 300 gems and no success for snow
And Valentine animals only got dove been trying since they were released
This animal probably also impossible to breed unless bought straight
Why i even bother

02-27-15, 11:54 AM
I will check on this.
Looks like TL is gonna have to reimburse those that spent gems speeding Dark + Nature instead of Dark + Earth today :\ That is IF they're gonna be nice enough to try and correct the mistake they made...

Any info on if they'll do this for their customers that were misled? Thanks, Kooky!

P.S. In the end, I just broke down and bought the darn thing after speed breeding around 150 gems... why not when today has been horrible to begin with? >.<

I would think they should definitely reimburse those gems.

Marti Claw will probably be around after the goal to breed it expires, and this one should be too. We don't actually know that the Giraffe will ever be limited. That feels overly optimistic, though... but I would say it will probably be around for a month, and the Marti Claw as well, so there is time to work on them... at least they share one element, so breeding dark-earth-electric will work. I was doing this anyway as I still don't have a Gargolem. That would be a really nice fail for me... however, I may just buy it for the 200 gems if I don't get it this weekend.

Yep. Not happy. I too sped bred some until I noticed the discrepancy pointed out in the forum posts :(

02-27-15, 12:29 PM
Just updated my goal to Dark-Earth! Glad I waited to breed until I saw what the forums said. But only 200 gems maybe I'll buy it lol feeling lazy today.

02-27-15, 12:29 PM
Does anyone know how long this 200 gem sale is going to last for the giraffe? Is it 7 days like the quest?

02-27-15, 01:14 PM
think ill just buy this one for gems considering that i still dont have pony and if i get that on the last day only have 2 days to try for mardi -.- far too many at one time, and all different elements, i just cant do it all !!!!

At least Dark/Earth falls within my current preferred combination for trying for a Unicorn along with the Mardi Claw sand Snowpossum. I will be using Earth/Water/Dark/Electric attempts to get a Unicorn. I am missing 9 of the possible 25 outcomes from this combination

So now that the details have been released, is it just the goal that is limited - or the animal itself.

I won't expect a reply from TL, they didn't give one the last time I asked this exact same question for another animal (which did indeed become limited a short time later).

If they refund people's lost gems, we'll know it was merely an honest mistake on their part that they're willing to make right. If they, however, do NOT reimburse users that lost gems because of their OWN mistake, then we'll know for sure.

I hope they reimburse. It would go a long way to showing the community (their paying customers) that they actually are willing to make right something in their product that they messed up in the first place, not the customer.

If I go to a sports shop and buy what the owners of the store claim is a tennis ball machine and find out when I get home that the product I bought was not what was advertised, I go back to the store and get the CORRECT product that was advertised with the owners of the store happily exchanging the faulty product with the right one with no fuss (and most often times the customer is given a discount for the trouble the owner put them through from their mistake). That's just common business sense and any honest business owner would happily right a wrong they themselves unknowingly thrust onto a customer.

If TL doesn't refund the gems lost on their own mistake, it would be akin to the sports shop owner saying, 'hey, sorry, you should have double-checked the product in the store while you had the chance (even though I told you up-front the box you had was what you'd specifically asked for). You bought it and while it's my fault I sold you the wrong product, you're just gonna have to live with MY mistake for the rest of your life and there's nothing you can do about it! Hahaha! Better luck next time and make sure you double-check EVERYTHING from now on, lol!'

So, TL... is the joke on us, then?

Kooky, any word on the possibility of reimbursement from TL from a mistake they, themselves made that robbed us of many, many gems for the 'wrong product'? :\

If they don't refund me the gems, obviously I'll stop playing. I'm already pissed that some of us didn't get the sale, but if they don't refund the gems, I'm absolutely done.
I do think however that this was a honest mistake on their part. I don't see them stepping this low and do such a thing on purpose. I mean they are an established company by now.
Anyway I will write to the support as soon as I get a chance. I think I was out of a bit more than 400 gems by the time I figured out the goal description was wrong . I took a pic of my gem count at that point and of the goal description so I'm hoping that will help

Edit: I spent 389 gems to be exact

Here's the pic of the goal with the wrong description

On another note, while I see TL staff online, a simple yes/no question: is this animal going to change from the "new" / permanent marking to become a "limited" animal? Please, just an honest straightforward actual answer for a change. Please.

OK first of all, I'm not lost in the forums (not playing the game (even DS) due to issues at home, and haven't been on the phone either) due to constantly getting fails in breeding a Mardi claw, I brought this creature for 200 gems!! Now hearing those who had issues with breeding him I feel really bad and glad TL is helping everyone out!!! But my issue here is this gem sale, for I didn't get a sale, and I could of used one this week!!! I do wish everyone lots of luck in breeding this one If your not buying him!!!

I sped several times unsucessfully when this showed up, then bought it because it was a good deal. i am not going to email TL because I don't keep records about every breeding so I can't give them an exact amount for reimbursement. If TL made the mistake they should man up and reimburse everyone for the wasted speed up, not just those who keep records of every breeding so know what to ask for. It is a money making mistake for TL because they only reimburse those who see this forum and know to ask for reimbursement. Yeah, they correct the mistake, but only reimburse those who spend the time to email them. They still come out ahead on those of us who sped and don't email them. They could fix the mistake and reimburse everyone who sped the mistaken combination, but where is the profit in that?

I love this lil guy and the sale is a good one so moving on as always at my expense for TL's mistake. I have come to the conclusion that to play this game in peace I must accept the fact that TL is going to make a good profit from me on these frequent mistakes and I just figure it a cost to play the game.

I do love the Pygmy Giraffe!

I do thoroughly agree that it's ridiculous that people who don't read these forums get cheated - not just on this but on many other things.

However, I just wanted to say that you don't have to have an exact count of how many gems you spent - TL can go into your account and see exactly how many you spent on various things. So, definitely email them... all you should have to say is that you used gems for speeding during that time and they can figure out how many.

I used the skyger and the rhino several times but that?s not going to work I suppose. I got the dreambat and I didn?t have that yet. I?m going for skyger and gargolem, maybe that will work.

I was lucky to breed this using scarecrow and Gargolem. Not sure if this is a coincidence or not but my scarecrow is level 10 and my Gargolem was level 7. I had several fails. I leveled up my Gargolem to level 9 and bam, got it, first try using those levels. Either way, it ended up being relatively painless for me to get which I am grateful for. I'm still stinging from not being offered a gem sale. Good luck to all still trying!

So was I ... But they did deliver excellent customer support. Same thing when some of us spend extra runes for Treent and Hareon.
So I'm impressed with support team recently.
I had different experience with them 6 months ago

As long as you can see it in the shop, you can breed it.

They have yet to ever remove an animal when the goal to breed it ends, without previously labeling it limited. I can't 100% promise they never will, but chances are pretty good it will still be available for a while without the goal. We don't even know that it will ever be limited... but if it will be, it probably has a month. Most of the new animals they've released recently have been around for about a month (aside from the special case one week limiteds, which were labeled limited from the start).

I bought one. The sale on gems + the sale on the animal + not knowing if it will suddenly disappear after a week + knowing the mardi claw WILL disappear in 10 hours meant I have to try for the mardi claw and just buy this one if I want it. Which I did. It's in my flower now.

Wow - they not only give European players a hugely unfair disadvantage in flash tournaments, but also don't bother to correct things they correct for Americans and other English-speakers unless separately brought to their attention, and days later. I'm glad they eventually did correct this for you, even though they clearly will never make flash tournaments fair for all time zones.
