When hatching eggs you can either place the dragon in the habitat or sell the egg from the nest to collect point.

If you purchase the fountain , you can only use it for this event, not any future events.
Please do not post pictures of your leaderboard showing other players ID's. You can post a picture of your leaderboard, but please mark out the ID's. This is to protect other players privacy.

Update for players that lost items from the Skylord Spin the Wheel.

I have this on my ipad but I can't figure out "what" to do? I did send out my fire dragon on the outpost. I have an egg ready to hatch, so I guess I will try that and hope I don't loose whatever points I may have earned????

It says rank. I read it as meaning the top players will be ranked 1 and the lowest earning players will be ranked 20. Who knows how many players will be in each category.

amerirish
03-29-16, 10:48 AM
I don't like this new gimmick. I hate the idea of competing against other players; that's not the kind of game I signed up for. I like when we work together in community events but this set up makes me uncomfortable. So this means that only one player will win the grand prize dragon? I don't like this at all :(

There are prize dragons for collecting like world events. Personally I'm just going for those. The grand prize is.. Whoever spends the most money gets it.

AuroraLava
03-29-16, 10:49 AM
Ok so they say we can collect from the Skylord Fountain..but that costs 150 gold...is there any other way to get one? If not, this seems like a way for only those who spend cash to progress.

Clark_Wayne
03-29-16, 10:53 AM
i don't like this event neither : you need to compet with other players so those who can buy lot of bonus will have more chance to win :mad:

amerirish
03-29-16, 10:55 AM
Are you going against everyone or neighbors?

Pretty sure it's everyone because there are some unfamiliar names on my 'leaderboard'. I hate this event because there's no possible way for me to win since I refuse to spend gold on this and there are plenty of players out there that will.

belarica
03-29-16, 10:57 AM
Is this our punishment for saying we were getting too many events? Now it's pay up or don't get anything?

my point exactly. I don't like this compiting stuff.there's no fun here,just enger one to another.

Oh, and this updated version still crashes after loading, so I'm going back to the Halloween version, which crashes too but after I get some things done

HuckBellery
03-29-16, 11:01 AM
If you decided to make only 2 players get the main dragon, could you change the milestones so there won't be dragons we already have? I'm not sure about others, but e.g. I already have all the dragons from milestones and I have no chance to get Skylord >.< Maybe something that will possibly give us dragons we don't have, please?

lenasdinner

One other thing that stinks is that we don't get any credit for hatching the new eggs we just won in the community event because "not found through breeding" eggs don't count. This is stupid.

Under "Info" table you can find out how can you gain points. Also, if you click "FAQ" button there, you can read everything about this event :)

Niire
03-29-16, 11:06 AM
No. i hate this type of competition. Blatently supporting "he who has the most money wins"? I am NOT happy...

okay I have to amend a bit. I see we can earn dragons along the way as well. Tanuki and Galaxy are two I don't have...might not be as bad as I initially thought, lol.

cocauina
03-29-16, 11:06 AM
This has a logic that doesn't make sense. They create Dragon Tales and World Events so the community unites in order to help and now they create this thing so the community just fight against each other. Oh well.

blueangel826
03-29-16, 11:07 AM
I was on regular DS collecting last minute clovers & as the Community Event ended, a wheel & another icon appeared. I spun wheel & read instructions & we've started the big event! The final dragon was awarded on Comm Event even though the full amt was short more than 300,000!! Put mine on nest & began breeding newest dragon in market. Colors are white, blue, & green. Forgot his name. ..OOOPS! Ck it out & I thought I should download Birthday Bash now. Good luck to all! !

Sandybellee
03-29-16, 11:13 AM
I'm glad we can earn Tanuki and Galaxy since I don't have those. But I'm with everyone on the compete against each other aspect - don't like it at all!

But the event only just started so I'm reserving judgment until we see how this plays out. I started pretty well - bred Diamond and Banshee and got 1 hour so that must be Mercury! :)

mbyte68
03-29-16, 11:13 AM
hmmmm not sure i like this maybe have top 10 people for dragon not the top1 SMH least in the other dragon game thats out its more then top1 that gets the prize in events like this HINT HINT theres :/

synasuga
03-29-16, 11:13 AM
ok as everyone can see first rank player is PLAYIN HARD !!! allready have 228.that means that no prize for those who dosent spend any cash.



There must be different leader boards because my 1st rank player has 123 and I'm level 153. Maybe it goes by the level you are for the rank's? Not sure

Edit- I was correct- Per the FAQ's everyone is "paired" with community players who are similiar so there is a chance there may be more than 1 overall winner and will be 1 winner per "group"

silverybunny
03-29-16, 11:15 AM

If you click on the leaderboard icon then click the 'info' tab you see what the rules are. Basically breeding, hatching, adventuring, and collecting from the fountain (which costs 150 gold). Breeding and hatching rare, super, and ultra only.

I have to add my voice to others here, this has always been a community game and I like working with other members of the community so we can all earn prizes together. I do not like competing against members of the community so the two top $ spenders can win a dragon that nobody else gets.

dangerb0y
03-29-16, 11:22 AM
I have the option to quest and to buy the fountain, but I don't see anything to indicate an event is going on. There is nothing for me to click on.

My baby account has it, but not my main account. Fishy.

Two things:

Everyone seems to be be split into groups of 20(?). I just hatched the new Henna dragon and got 91 points, putting me into first place with 2nd place at 19.

This appears to me to be just a way to reward the people who spend actual cash on the game. People who spend gold buying dragons and who spend gold speeding things up are going to be the ones who finish on the top.

(TL/S8: I'd prefer if you just gave people bonuses when they spent money. For instance, spend so much money on gold & we'll gift you this dragon.)

Could Rank 1 mean a group of people at Rank 1 instead of just one person? Could someone answer that because that's what it appears to be.

Guess here. We just don't get bonus points from common and unbreedable dragons. We always gain them from hours (e.g. Pot of Gold is 20h so we should gain 60 points from hatching) :)

it is not a big deal because - as many others here - i don't like this kind of competition, but still i'm curious... i thought this event is for everyone not only for some of us ;)

Yes it's unfair that those who spend money will get everything but all events are like that. Some people buy the expensive community collection deco to finish faster. Some ultimate their way thru battles or speed the arena. Some speed breed to be certain of having enough time to breed the limited dragons. People will always spend money on such things. Is the new dragon cool? Yes. Do I have anywhere to put it if I won it? No. So I will play pretty much as normal and win what I can. No stress. No anger. No one is forcing anyone to compete for anything.

What is with the forums this week.....so much anger and complaint across the board! It's sad. :(

Yes Tuffy. exactly. :) I was reading posts wrong, so I'll apologize in advance. bad day getting a bunch of injections followed by a visit to the hospital for new xrays, gah...so I am very sorry i came off that way at first.

Now that I see how it works, it's not that bad. In fact, it's a bit like a world event where you can earn stuff you couldn't get to before instead of new stuff. :) That aspect I definitely dig! :)

Now..I do have a question, maybe Kooky or FlatFoot know...if we were to spend the 150 gold on the fountain..will it work in other leaderboard events? Or just this one? :)

I'm not happy with this event, I play this game because it is a non competitive game unlike most games I've played in recent years.

Thanks S8 for sucking the life out of a game I was enjoying even though I can't seem to breed any of the new dragons.

LocalNews
03-29-16, 11:54 AM
I agree. This has never been a competition. I am out. I will not get the fountain unless I can earn it some way. I am not in this to outspend anybody. I have given them plenty of money over the years.

I have a very strong feeling that near the end of the contest a new 'contender' will rise. Either S8 or someone will make an unlikely push to force people to spend gold. Brutal brutal event. I'll play this one maybe.

Yes it's unfair that those who spend money will get everything but all events are like that. Some people buy the expensive community collection deco to finish faster. Some ultimate their way thru battles or speed the arena. Some speed breed to be certain of having enough time to breed the limited dragons. People will always spend money on such things.

Yes, but with those events, anyone who works hard can get those prize dragons without spending gold. I've got all the community event dragons & dragon tale dragons, and I've won every tournament* dragon without spending gold to do so. But this event is designed in such a way that there is no possible way to win the grand prize dragon without spending gold. (I prefer spending gold on premium habitats.:))

*I actually lost the very first tournament since I hadn't seen any reason to raise my dragons to lvl10 at the time. After the 1st tournament, I raised my ultra & super rare dragons up to lvl10. The 1st tournament dragon was Yin Yang which they thankfully brought back for a flash tournament later, which I happily won the second time around. (Yeah!)

I don't like this new gimmick. I hate the idea of competing against other players; that's not the kind of game I signed up for. I like when we work together in community events but this set up makes me uncomfortable. So this means that only one player will win the grand prize dragon? I don't like this at all :(

I completely agree.

Agreed. I hate it when one wins something only at the expense of others. That's not why I played this game.
Also, it's not even because of the fact that one has to spend gold. I'm fine with spending gold, but I'd rather spend it on something that is fun instead of on something that gives me anxieties. Besides, gold doesn't even guarantee a win, so....yeah
But I'm sure some people enjoy this event, so good luck to anyone that's trying:)

Just looking at the leaderboard makes me feel bad. I'm into collaboration and achieving things together and events where everyone can win the prize, not 20 players competing for 1 dragon. :p

I'm only collecting to get Tanuki and Galaxy. Not spending one bar of gold on this!

I'm intrigued by this event. I'm guessing the fountain is in the second or third treasure chest. I like that you can get points for eggs on the nest and the breeding roost.

I'm also excited there seems to be an incentive for breeding Ultra dragons. I have diamond and crusader, but due to all the events and needing the nest open, I've hardly tried to get any other diamond dragons. This is a great opportunity to focus on getting some of these dragons. I'm wondering if it is only unbreedable dragons that won't get the extra bonus.

I have a bunch of dragons from wheel spins that at one time were breedable, but now aren't. Also, 2 out of every 20 people will get the winning dragon if I am reading the instructions right. Not bad odds really. I probably won't get it because I won't spend any gold, but maybe no one else in my group will either and I'll have a chance.

Who knows! Good luck everyone!

I'm tied for 8th place with 0 points! Lol! I already hatched my new henna today before this appeared. And put my new Hidden Gem Dragon from crafting on the nest for the next 35 1/2 hours. I'm not sure if that will give me any points or not. I will just play the way I normally do and see how many points I get.

I do have some questions. Are the milestone prizes for this week only or are they cumulative over multiple events?
This new dragon is definitely beautiful! Will she be for multiple events or just this week?

It says rank. I read it as meaning the top players will be ranked 1 and the lowest earning players will be ranked 20. Who knows how many players will be in each category.

I think they're randomly selecting 20 players for each group and the ranking is within the group.

My other account, level 113, has the icons and is already in first place. I switched over to my main account on that account's device to see if it was just a device issue, and the icons still aren't showing up.

FYI- I can still earn points on the main account, since the little notification popped up when I collected from the good leader quest. The market also has the fountain available. I just have no wheel and no leaderboard icon/total point count.

03-29-16, 01:11 PM
The number of points required to get Tanuki is 3,900 that's seems an awful lot. The only good thing I see with this event is that we could possibly spin 3 gold every 4 hours on the wheel! Not interested in this event apart from the gold on the wheel.

I was worried that this event was going to look like this. I don't feel the love for the long time players. Every rerelease I have all the dragons, the sales bundles-have them. This event-have them all. I've worked hard for my dragons and I totally get its probably exciting if you are a newer player or missed an event but why not throw us older islands a bone? Oh the final prize, where only 2 can get, and only if I spend a bunch of money? I was hoping that I would be excited on this birthday event with a reward for my 4 years of loyalty and all the money I've spent over those years.

We all know the folks who spend their way through the game, we get the play by plays daily. I'm so excited to see the posts that are coming about how well it's going spending the most money. Some people can't buy the gold and many might be able to but won't anymore for many reasons. No need to go into why people have decided to stop. I don't need the lecture about the need to make money, I've made them a fair share and as a customer I can express my feelings on the product.
I will just play my game, I've got nothing new to go for. I'm not buying this prize. It's a bit of a let down, boring for me. That's my opinion.
I've also heard from friends that the island pairing isn't done in a way that feels fair. I've not delved into that since I saw all the prizes are dragons I have.
I'm happy for anyone who is going to enjoy this event. Clearly you can't please everyone. I think they could've got a little closer to fair for folks like me. Again...IMO.

The unbreedable dragons have a long hatch time... and you still get the points per hour (x3) but not any additional bonus points on top of that. The spin-to-win is every 4 hours and could change things quickly...
I don't like this either, promise, but am excited for Tanuki because I don't have him and hate breeding these days.
We all have kept our food but really needed long times on our nests...

If anyone is keeping track, I am currently a level 112 with 81 points ranked at level 5. Just hatched Pot of Gold and it took me over 50.

GL everyone. Even if we are against each other.

P.S. - I definitely think for a 4 year anniversary new dragons should be involved. If they would have released one less event and saved those dragons for the birthday, then I think it would have been better received once everyone had a couple dragons and the shock wore off.

Completely agree, I haven't been playing since the beginning like you, but I have spent real money for fake gold. When I discovered I was one of the unlucky people that get a gold sale once or twice a year I decided I wouldn't be spending money on DS any longer. That is S8's loss and since I don't speed up or ultimate very often my gold last a long time. Well, except for the 500 gold trap I stepped into recently:(

You or someone called belarica is on my leader board in the 3rd position with 162 points. The isle in the first position, babebrach, currently has 370 points. Are you that belarica? If so, is that the same isle in the first position on your leader board?

S8/TL should use this event as a mechanism to detect cheating/hacking. Theyre fools if they don't. Break out the permaban stick.

Like most mobile games it would come down to money though... they won't want to refund money if the cheats also spend money. Lots of ways to combat stuff like this though.

I know I could buy her, but I, for some reason, like to bred as opposed to buying. :) Basically, with this event, I decided to go with the flow, do what I normally do (try for dragons etc), and see how it pans out.

I haven't got the last 2 dragon prizes yet, so that is definitely an advantage for me, as I love getting new babies. :D

Hey FlatFoot, you all should put the time travel dragon, along with that tales' dragons up on this thing. I think i would faint if you would! LOL

I was worried that this event was going to look like this. I don't feel the love for the long time players. Every rerelease I have all the dragons, the sales bundles-have them. This event-have them all. I've worked hard for my dragons and I totally get its probably exciting if you are a newer player or missed an event but why not throw us older islands a bone? Oh the final prize, where only 2 can get, and only if I spend a bunch of money? I was hoping that I would be excited on this birthday event with a reward for my 4 years of loyalty and all the money I've spent over those years.

We all know the folks who spend their way through the game, we get the play by plays daily. I'm so excited to see the posts that are coming about how well it's going spending the most money. Some people can't buy the gold and many might be able to but won't anymore for many reasons. No need to go into why people have decided to stop. I don't need the lecture about the need to make money, I've made them a fair share and as a customer I can express my feelings on the product.
I will just play my game, I've got nothing new to go for. I'm not buying this prize. It's a bit of a let down, boring for me. That's my opinion.
I've also heard from friends that the island pairing isn't done in a way that feels fair. I've not delved into that since I saw all the prizes are dragons I have.
I'm happy for anyone who is going to enjoy this event. Clearly you can't please everyone. I think they could've got a little closer to fair for folks like me. Again...IMO.

Jen

I absolutely, positively agree with you. Omg, this just doesn't make sense. I have 18 (including me) in my group. How are they even ranking people. I'm level 182 and 6 in my group are 138 and below...how is the level 122 in my group not going to feel "intimidated" when they click my Island and see my island?!? This is not good...not good at al....

This event definitely targets "whale" players. The players who buy gold at an incredible rate and must have everything. I'm sure a lot of us would be shocked at the amount of gold some people buy.



Clearly this event isn't for the casual player who is F2P or buys some gold on rare occasions.


Oh man, I'm sure you are correct. I can't imagine how disappointing this is going to be for folks really trying to compete without the gold to back it up....good to know I'm not crazy, well maybe I'm crazy but not alone!

I received 53 points at the 1. Milestone, and for a couple of seconds I was the leader of my group, but then there was a rollback, and I lost my points ...

03-29-16, 02:23 PM
You or someone called belarica is on my leader board in the 3rd position with 162 points. The isle in the first position, babebrach, currently has 370 points. Are you that belarica? If so, is that the same isle in the first position on your leader board?

Yes that sounds like my group. I spied on the leader and noticed they do have a couple treasure dragons after all but definitely not enough to afford all gold habitats unless they've been playing forever.

I'm just disappointed this event is just another cash grab. Hopefully I get enough for tanuki anyway, I've wanted it for a long time!

jjblueyes
03-29-16, 02:23 PM
Completely agree, I haven't been playing since the beginning like you, but I have spent real money for fake gold. When I discovered I was one of the unlucky people that get a gold sale once or twice a year I decided I wouldn't be spending money on DS any longer. That is S8's loss and since I don't speed up or ultimate very often my gold last a long time. Well, except for the 500 gold trap I stepped into recently:(

Yikes. Yes no matter the time played many have huge investments.

I'll reserve judgement. This is a new type of event and the first run may not be perfect, innovation rarely is perfect.

Some good aspects:

No food requirements, we can keep feeding whatever dragons we like (something many complain about re Tales events)
Our Evolution Temple is not required, hence we can keep evolving dragons of choice
We don't have to try to breed anything in particular, so can breed whatever we want
There is gold on the wheel

I'll wait until it is over then assess from an overall perspective.

Humans are notoriously resistant to change and this is change.

I play Star Wars GoH and asked some of the top players what they put in. It's thousands. Would not be shocked at all if the same occurred in this game.

Clearly this event isn't for the casual player who is F2P or buys some gold on rare occasions.

I've never had issue with anyone spending money on whatever. I don't enjoy the bragging that can go on or the ones who clearly spend the money but say they don't..…I've also never seen an event like this where only the big spenders will get the big prize. I'm not willing to put out what's going to be needed.

03-29-16, 02:38 PM
It's a way to generate income from whales. Nothing wrong with that, but not much there for longtime players who don't spend gold at an incredible rate. Glad there is something for you in this event.

There isn't anything here fundamentally changing the game so I'm not sure I'd classify it as change.

Makes no difference, my assessment is on par with yours. People that have the money will win the final prize. I feel for some of the islands in my group that are barely established.

There are 4 "treasure chests" on the wheel. Looks like a wooden, bronze, silver and gold. So, my husband just did his spin and hit the "basic" wood treasure chest and got 20 points. 30 minutes ago I hit the same one and got 36. He's level 130 and I'm 182...does this mean the people in my "group" at level 130 are only getting 20?

At first glance I was interested because I have never done this type competition until I went to the market for the Skylord Fountain. ..
150 gold ! Obviously this event is designed to target a subgroup of players who are willing to burn through gold in the name of winning. Good Luck to those participating, but I will sit this one out, if I earn points great, if not that's fine too. I may be jumping the gun but not my cup of tea, the juice is NOT worth the squeeze ☺

Any word yet on why some accounts do not have access to the leaderboard/wheel?

To recap, my main account has the two new quests and the fountain available, but no icons for the event or the wheel. My other account has everything for the event. I have switched to the main account on the device for the other account to see if it is a device issue and vice versa, but the problem still exists. I have also closed and restarted the game (birthday version) several times and restarted my device. But, since the event is working on the same app on the same device for one account and not the other, it is an issue with the account, not the device or the app.

Thanks.

Count me on the "I hate this event"-team.

Not only 17 out of 19 people won't have any chance on getting the final prize, each and every point I make does make it more difficult to others, and vice versa.

I'm in a group with 18 other players! Lvl 124 to 200! In what universe is this fair???

Really, TL, S8? Is this your way of "celebrating" the fourth year? By denying 17 out of 19 people any chance? By competing against each other? By making is know that, when I get the final prize, someone else won't because I already got it? By making me feel horrible to keep those prizes away from my fellow players, who helped me in the past, so this is how I should thank them?

No, I do not want to participate in this event, is there, please, please, any way I can remove myself from the leaderboards?

Not playing for 6 days is no option, my neighbors expect gold, I want to breed new dragons, I need a food-stash for the new tales, and I'm sure a tournament will come. I have never ever skipped aan event, always made it to the last prize, even of I had to spent some gold, but I do not want to play this event.

My suggestion to all: ask TL/S8 to remove you from the leaderboards. Of enough people do this, they will get the message.

Minutes later, without doing anything, it says I have 75 and I didn't even exit the game! :mad:I also don't have the fountain and it's only available through purchase with gold.

@chuckyt888 she obviously didn't read the FAQ'S which state: How you earn points can change from event to event. One event may require you to breed and hatch dragons to earn points while another may have you harvesting crops from your farms and feeding your dragons. Make sure to check the Info during the event to learn the specific details!

Makes no difference, my assessment is on par with yours. People that have the money will win the final prize. I feel for some of the islands in my group that are barely established.

"Nobody would pay for that much gold!"

Oh, how I wish I could believe that. I say those very words looking at the prices of basically every single item and "deal" in Dragon Story. But these days, with all the latest money-grabbing currency-trap spending-inducing tricks and updates of Storm8, anything is possible. My respect for them as a company has plummeted, particularly with the latest updates in Castle Story that are aimed to make you accidentally spend gems.

I also lost my points earlier. I hit the 50 milestone and won something like 57 points, then I won another 25 on the wheel. It put my up over 130. Then my game went to "Loading" and I was back down to 50. It took away both my wheel points and milestone points and my wheel shows no spins available and my milestone is checked off.

You are awesome!

This event is riddled with glitches, rollbacks, and a complete shift in attitude (the competition aspect) and I don't particularly care for this feature. But, I really do appreciate your big picture approach and patience. Allowing something to prove or disprove itself in time is a wise and measured stance. Thank you for reminding us to step back and not judge right away. I shall try to do the same. Perhaps not so successfully as I keep trying to find a tactful way to say this feature is bleep, bleeep, and bleep.

Lol, I feel you, although in my personal opinion, it is not entirely impossible to have that much point. Remember that breeding & hatching hours are multiplied by 3 when they are converted to points, so that player probably only spent a few thousands of gold. And if he or she has all 11 gold producing dragons and has been saving gold, then he or she probably doesn't even have to purchase gold...it's sad but yeah...I have pretty much given up on winning at this point, lol

I am a fan of change but do not enjoy events or 'challenges' where I know right off the bat I have no real chance of earning. I do mean "earning" not 'winning' or 'getting'. I don't mind having to work for a prize but without spending real $$ there's zero chance of me earning this prize.

Oh no! I'm so sorry! That's nuts! Goes to show that the two biggest spenders in each group of 20 get the dragon.

My First place player has over 5,000!!!!!! I have 24. Really? Just a few hours in...and it's already over. Knew I'd not come close, but out already takes the fun away. I'll try for goal dragons as I don't have them all. Super disappointing tho.

You can spin it as positive as you want. It's not popular and it has nothing to do with anyone not being able to handle change. If you like it great. I'm honestly happy for anyone who finds it enjoyable. For me not so much and Vermilion was pointing out that some of the good things we don't have to deal with now, will be coming. Maybe not today but they will be coming and that's a reality.

Maybe as people complain things will get tweaked.

Sorry! But ROFL and thanks for that! I know EXACTLY how you feel. It's a joke that my nbrs are all going to delete me because my flooring luck has rubbed off onto them! I didn't even like the flooring enough to craft more when we could, now it's all I ever win! (Coins sometimes, about as useful as tiles).
Agree with event strategy too. my #1 has like 2,000 times the points that I do just a few hours in. Clearly they have loads of extra gold to spend.

Hammer meet nail, Jen.

I'm surprised nobody is talking more about getting points rolled back from winning chests in the spin to win and meeting milestone requirements. It's happened to me and many others already.

At what point is this event going to be fair to anyone when what points some people can actually get are stripped away?

Maybe not today but they will be coming and that's a reality.

Maybe as people complain things will get tweaked.

Jeez. I am a developer and completely understand deployment issues etc. but I haven't seen many parts of this event that have actually gone right at this point.

S8/TL: it's OK to yank a bug ridden event and call a redo. It's better to do that than let it go on like this. We are beta testing at this point.



P. S
I inadvertently bought a one hour boost for 6 gold (tapped the Info button, was distracted and not paying attention & proceeded to tap the Get button, was totally my own fault) and the one hour boost lasted for 21 minutes!!!
Just a heads up to anyone planning to get a boost.

Sorry! But ROFL and thanks for that! I know EXACTLY how you feel. It's a joke that my nbrs are all going to delete me because my flooring luck has rubbed off onto them! I didn't even like the flooring enough to craft more when we could, now it's all I ever win! (Coins sometimes, about as useful as tiles).
Agree with event strategy too. my #1 has like 2,000 times the points that I do just a few hours in. Clearly they have loads of extra gold to spend.
Same for me, except it was usually coins, which I do not need. At all. Or a measly amount of food.
I do not like this kind of pay to win competition at all. For me that is not gamesmanship. I usually get the prizes in the events, because I work hard, not because I spend gold. Which I do spend, but on fun stuff like special habitats or gold dragons on sale.
And how do we know the "leaders" are not artificial to stimulate spending? Not making accusations here, just saying that it would be definitely good for game economy.
So I will just play as usual, enjoy the game, level up some dragons and get what I get. That is fine with me. No stress.
I am not complaining, just providing feedback.

I had a feeling this event would turn out like this when the update teased a 'Leaderboard Event'. You can't have leaderboards if no one is competing against someone else. I'm just happy it's not for the Gold type dragon that was also teased. Mark my vote as 'dislike' for this type of event. I'll play as much as not spending gold will allow and save my gold for the upcoming (I hope) gold dragon.

Good luck everyone!

Hey Flatfoot or other storm8 staffer trolling in the evening here. We like the events but we hate the bad code and glitches. I have two accounts where the points earned from the milestone chest were deleted / not added to my total. Don't even get me started on sending a support ticket in they are useless for most in game events. Did I mention don't get me started on that one. Anywho, can you please credit my accounts and fix the glitch. The game / event is hard enough without issues with how the game works. Thanks

See post 121 reported over 4 hours ago. Milestone #1 totals when you win points are not being added in. This happen on 2 of my accounts and I am sure it is happening on others. Kooky can you check with the team on this. I have not seen any update / resolution on here since I first reported it. Thanks

The milestones seem to be random. I just got 3 gold on my main account for the first milestone.


I got the 1st milestone prize, opened and got 71, fine. but... glitch ! roll back ! ok i'm opening my prize a 2nd time : 51 :(
then glitch again ! :mad:
open 3rd time : balloons ! argg !


HELP. My first milestone prize was just taken away from me. I had over 110 points including the milestone prize and now I only have 51, with no prize at all (even though it shows I'm over 50). How do I get them back? Every time I've written to S8 in the past about a glitch, I've gotten a form-response and no actual help.

Those of you who got points should consider yourself lucky. I got 5,000 coins for my first milestone "reward". Talk about a slap in the face. :rolleyes:

Must be random. I guess Lurker2 is right.

03-29-16, 07:17 PM
You're better off actually getting something. I got points for the milestone and it was immediately rolled back and I got nothing. I got two chests on spin to win and it rolled back and I got nothing.

Most of the things that award points are getting immediately rolled back.

For all you 80's kids out there I can only quote Judge Smails from Caddyshack: "You'll get nothing and like it!!!"

Awesome!

Yep it's happening to many including myself. I got burned twice already on Spin to Win chests getting rolled back as well so be on the lookout for the screw there.

I think they should back out of this entire event at this point. Or hey here is a novel idea: give everyone the Skylord for anniversary 4 and wait to deploy these leaderboard events when the devs and QA tell you it's ready.

My suggestion: let's all ignore this event, and ask to be removed from the leaderboards.

Can we opt out ? I just have no interest in participating in this . Atleast during tournaments you can avoid the arena, I feel like I'm being forced into this and that doesn't fit right for me. All else, I will play whatI can without contributing to points.

03-29-16, 07:41 PM
The rewards for 3-20 are absolutely minute. I believe 1st place should receive slightly more and 3rd place should receive the dragon. The top 10 should be rewarded nicely with food/gold/maps/other lesser rare dragons.

Considering that we're supposed to be celebrating the 4 year 'birthday' of Dragon Story it is really, really odd that they give us the first ever competitive event. How is that even relevant? It's so weird, especially with all of the point glitches. I wonder if any of the developers even play this game :confused:

You're right! It's not even 12 hours in and already a number of technical issues have surfaced, I'm sure there's plenty more to follow and from reading the posts across the forums, there's no remedy coming. Cut your losses and relaunch the right way, as for players. ..RUN lol it's a trap

jaymieb2
03-29-16, 07:48 PM
I know I am not getting the Grand Prize super-cool new dragon. I accept that. Moving on...

I get:
- the opportunity to select my own breeding pairs
- the ability to save food or choose to level my dragon choice
- the possibility of spin to win gold every 4 hours
- hatching dragons from storage
- the opportunity to win all of the milestone dragons, which I don't have.

On the downside, I won't be a top pick on the leaderboard, so I will miss the new dragon. I have no idea how to get enough points for the milestone dragons without spending gold. Not spending gold because I recently lost 250 gold on coins when there was a glitch (I have ~75,000,000 coins - would NEVER buy more - and they wouldn't let me swap the glitch purchase for the on sale habitat or apples. Tech support said that I could only have one correction, which I had already used.

Not sure how I feel about the "Earn your own prizes" concept, yet. The community events have that voncept, too... the Individual Prizes, which are attainable without gold, if you can do Diamond Dates on 7 farms, breed/hatch dragons, do adventures, collect from the individual prize periodically, etc. It is essentially just regular game play with some twists... But the requirements for these individual prizes seem crazy high to someone who is just starting this event.

If I get any of the milestone dragons, this event will have been a success for me.

Not everyone feels that way. And a lot of players already have those dragons. So I see some drawbacks. . .

I thought the same thing! Within the first 45 mins of launching the posts started coming in about rollback and glitches, I hate to see what's next. I'm not participating, I don't have any desire to spend a small fortune just to beat the next guy, I don't play like that .

I just spun the wheel on the leadership event for the second time and was really pleased to see it land on 3 gold. It then jumped forward to a lesser prize, a whole 15 leadership points.
I know there can be glitches, but this is incredibly irritating. What is going on?

All technical issues aside, here's another beef I have with this event: my 'results' are publicized to random players....I never agreed to share any info with anyone who I didn't approve as a neighbor. If I don't spend money to collect as much as possible, am I a loser on the bottom of some ranking list??

I really, really don't like that I am forced into this event. It's not fair and it's definitely not fun. The fact that it is simultaneously running with Limited Time dragons also makes it confounding. What the heck are we supposed to try breeding for.....Ultra Rares which will give us more points or the dragons that will disappear in less than a week? As a very logically thinking person, I feel like my head could explode from the complete lack of common sense this game continues to produce.

YIKES! You're right, my s8id is out for all to see, it's not listed by Island name it's your S8ID! Great! Personally I'm just carrying on as if there were no event. I'll proudly be the loser , matter of fact that's MY goal, to earn as little points as possible. I have no shame in the fact that I'm not spending outrages amounts of money and jumping thru hoops for ignorant tasks like a circus monkey. Let it be known Ladymakay WILL be the biggest loser☺

The direction the game has taken is extremely disconcerting to me as well. My gut tells me that they aren't getting many new players and those players they get are probably not spending much money on gold to chase a carrot that gets dragged further ahead of them each day. They are catering solely to big spenders at this point which probably means things will only get worse until the game hits it's end life.

I'm genuinely interested in how much progress any of you have made with upgrading dragons in the last year. I haven't done much in that area since Dragon Tales started gouging food. How about successfully breeding new or limited time dragons? Everything is built/timed/overlapped so that you'll constantly be chasing the carrot that disappears further into the distance. I won't even go into gold traps, manipulated winning %'s in the arena for tourneys/DT or this leaderboard event.

This has only got worse and worse in the last year. I've made the decision to not subsidize this at all until it changes.

When I started this game it was fun to meet challenges. Sometimes I had to spend gold in order to finish a tournament or to buy a dragon/habitat that was only offered for gold. That was fine and acceptable because I had a choice. Lately it seems that the developers are trying to change the game in such a way that older players will give up and new players will just accept that they have to spend money to enjoy the game. I will be deeply saddened if this path continues because this is my favorite TL game and do spend money from time to time. But I will quit before I allow my hand to be forced. There are many other games out there and I will get over it if I have to quit this one.

I'm level 182 and 6 in my group are 138 and below...how is the level 122 in my group not going to feel "intimidated" when they click my Island and see my island?!? This is not good...not good at al....

Yea, you can say it again, totally agree with you, dear. You know, when I saw people in the same group, I really feel "intimidated" as they are all high level players. My level is far away from them, lol... :D I don't understand the grouping was based on what...

100% with you. IMO they are making it seem like a second job to get anything accomplished anymore. With the rate they release new/limited dragons, events...and now even take old dragons off the shelf... along with gold making ability greatly reduced...its too much. They should give people more time between events to enjoy upgrading and maybe even miraculously successfully breed a rare dragon.

It's all money driven. It must be working better for them from a financial standpoint or they wouldn't be doing it. It's just a shame that it's come to this as most people I know who play the game aren't willing to put any money into it if it's going to be like this from here on out.

In case it hasn't been mentioned (I haven't noticed it yet) breeding in the Arctic Isles counts. I got 24 points for hatching an Ice Age egg, which seems odd as it is 4 hours, but I suppose they have equated it to the mainland where it would be 4 breeding + 4 incubating = 8 to hatch. 8 x 3 = 24.

So I collected the prize for the 50 point milestone and then the game reset and took it away. I had 199 points and it dropped me back to 85....keeping the points I won on the spin wheel AFTER I collected the prize. That's not happy! :(

Edited to add.....just got back from work and posted this before I read the previous posts. Guess I'm not the only one. If the prizes are different I guess those points won't be added back....sucks to have glitches!

As a long time player who started 4 years ago, I totally agree with you, amerirish! When I started it was fun and exciting, and I looked forward to days when new dragons came out. Now it is too much , what with space issues and land limitations, and the whole habitat thing. Not to mention new dragon on top of new dragon, it's all too much! Now I'm competing against the community instead of all working together to obtain whatever prize, which I didn't mind as it meant we worked together, not against each other, which I hate. Anyway, sorry if I'm ranting, but I gues the TL;DR is that I add my vote to the "dislike" basket.

Something weird just happened....I just decided not to be competitive with this one, and to just carry on focusing on crops to level up my dragons.....and I felt RELIEF! Giving myself permission to let this one run without me (and possibly miss out on a couple of dragons when I already have over 400) felt great!

Good luck to those that choose to compete. And enjoy the ride for those that dont!

I'll reserve judgement. This is a new type of event and the first run may not be perfect, innovation rarely is perfect.

Some good aspects:

No food requirements, we can keep feeding whatever dragons we like (something many complain about re Tales events)
Our Evolution Temple is not required, hence we can keep evolving dragons of choice
We don't have to try to breed anything in particular, so can breed whatever we want
There is gold on the wheel

I'll wait until it is over then assess from an overall perspective.

Humans are notoriously resistant to change and this is change.


I applaud your optimism, but I don't feel lucky to be able to simply play the game and do normal things.
Let's not forget that all change is not good change and if people don't speak up.....

I'm new to this, started in January and immediately spotted the suspect "game play options" they've turned this in to basically a low key pay to play
Speaking as a new player, if they think new players could or would be able to fill for the long term players who are ready to stop, theyre making a big mistake. As a newb I have no attachment or invesment in this, so it's not even a thought to delete and care less, compared to people who have been playing since it was released and invested so much more along with making personal connections with others. Perhaps TL has death wish for DS ,because they sure act like it.

03-29-16, 09:27 PM
I tried to put some math to the event. Broad strokes assuming normal play with a minimal expenditure of gold...

Figure I have two nests and one den. I ought to be able to keep them busy a minimum of 20 hours a day. Should do better. That's 180 (maybe more) a day. Send my dragon on 6 hour adventure 3 times a day, maybe fit in an extra 1 hour quest at night. Call that 85. May try to send several 1 hour trips in evening rather than a single 6 hour. Could be another 10-20 per day. Assume over 6 days that half my dragons bred are commons which gives me an average 10 bonus points a day. Also assume I get 25 points from one lucky spin (so far I've collected over 40 today on each account & kept them).

With these assumptions, that puts me at 300 points a day, with a realistic upper limit of 350. By the end of the 6 day event, I will have between 1800 & 2100 points. I won't even reach the first dragon which I already have. There's something wrong with the goals if these assumptions hold up over the event. Maybe there are better bonus points for reaching the milestones as you progress. The spin the wheel is the kicker in the calculations. But still that probably only raises me to the 400 per day mark which means I barely qualify for Pinata.

So... I passed the first milestone and the game crashed. It still says I got it but it's not in my storage. I have force closed the game twice, still no change. And yes, that's looking in the 'ALL' tab. Hope that doesn't happen when I get the the Dragon prize milestones.

Wow this is just crazy madness! It is a blatant cash grab by S8/TL once I realized that no biggie my biggest complaint is that my storm id is how I'm published in the leader board! I never consented to allow my id to be published for all to see! Who knows how many people I will have to decline now no in the future because they just decided to invade the little privacy we have. That to me is the worst part about this event. Why would they even do it that way? We have never been classified by our id just our island name. This is so not cool at all and must be changed not that a thousand people haven't already written them down by now. A half hour into the update I realized I definitely wouldn't win and I'm ok with that. I would like the Tanuki as I don't have it but again not that big of a deal. So I guess for me this will be a break to try and breed the dragons there has never been time for and feed some of my starving dragons. I won't even try to win or revolve my life around this event only to lose because I won't spend the gold. I think it's time to find a new game which is sad because I have some really great neighbors and enjoy the people I talk to here for help during the tournaments. Bas move TL with so many people already having one foot out of the game!

I have no problem with spending money on the game occasionally. After all, the folks that work there don't do it just for the thanks. I do, however, dislike being tricked into spending gold. I also agree with those who have said that the current trend with this game is a nightmare--constant events and unlike most, this time your privacy is invaded. I've seen many unhappy comments about those at the top of leaderboards. While undoubtably some are buying their way there, many others are not and this just creates animosity towards other players. I've enjoyed this game, but I'm really starting to get tired of the constant frenzy. Just might be time to put this down and pick up a good book.

I've got the gal in my group named Grammie "_______"
Grammie must have some time and money on her hands. She has 3 or 4 nests, both breeding dens going and every diamond producing dragon you ca buy. That's a bit intimidating as she sits at a nice bunch of points but for the 30 level below me (and I'm lower the Grammie) this must seem completely jacked. Hard not to say that Grammie isn't getting what she wants because she can afford it.
The only thing that has "changed" is how in our faces, blatant this event is. Seriously sad for the future of this game.

Hi TL/S8 ★

I play DS because it's a game of "me versus the server" and oftentimes in collaboration with the community/ friends to achieve a set of common objectives.

I would not imagine if DS goes competitive like Kingdom Clash, I would go for such platforms if I want a Leaderboard.

Please allocate prizes based on Tier and not just given to the person ranked first. Ty :p

I also hate this event. Also tired of the same old value pack and re-releases of re released re-releases. They know plenty of dragons not released once to android. TL can't make everyone happy, ha, they know many things many people ask for, yet they just do what they want and keep adding different new stuff that almost nobody wants, plus they continue adding without fixing issues too. Im about to be done. I'll give my time and money to another dragon game, that's always and continues to be equal between platforms, plenty of space and habitats, and where I can actually raise all my dragons if I have the coins to buy the very high producing crops.

I also hate this event. Also tired of the same old value pack and re-releases of re released re-releases. They know plenty of dragons not released once to android. TL can't make everyone happy, ha, they know many things many people ask for, yet they just do what they want and keep adding different new stuff that almost nobody wants, plus they continue adding without fixing issues too. Im about to be done. I'll give my time and money to another dragon game, that's always and continues to be equal between platforms, plenty of space and habitats, and where I can actually raise all my dragons if I have the coins to buy the very high producing crops.

Hi friend. I know, I was trying to be diplomatic but clearly, as I said they could do a lot better by the long time players! This event is off putting at best...

Ps. And I agree with your post!

As it seems there are many insane players who will want to win this...its theres money, can do what evere they want....but......what happens when 2 or 3 or more insane people get in one group and compete to win it its very possible that player who spent so much money can fall down last second of event .....and guess what drops at 3rd place and wins only food maps and coins....I dont think that he will jump of happyness.I would go out of my mind.
I am allready missing tale event,hope it will be next after this.at least we at the end get one or two new dragon if someone dosent have enough food.I think thats much better than this when we get.....NOTHING.

Quite agree Jen , don't think I can be as diplomatic as you so not saying too much .... I'm NOT impressed in anyway ..... Best I can do is just play my own game till this debacle is over ....... It's crazy and how real do we know the leader boards are anyway :(

It would seem that unless you're prepared to spend gold or cash on this event you have little chance. My leaders are 3 thousand ahead of me already!! This gives little or no chance to anyone else. Not enjoying this new challenge

Thank god I am not in this team

removed photo- privacy

That looks very similar to the group I'm in! Anyway, just won 3 gold on the wheel and now it's gone. This whole thing is so laughable and a complete disaster!

Also not happy about the invasion of pricacy, showing our IDs instead of island names on the leaderboard.

If I could, I would opt out. Maybe I just shouldn't play for a week.

Edit: Currently I have 271 points (without spending any gold) and I'm in place 12 in my group! Lol! :D

How come there are some real pictures before the names?
I thought we can only choose between blond girl or darkhaired boy?!

Anybody else seen this?

Edit- I was correct- Per the FAQ's everyone is "paired" with community players who are similiar so there is a chance there may be more than 1 overall winner and will be 1 winner per "group"

Well, not that similar. I am competing against 3 players that have 11 gold dragons each, and they are in the top positions. I only have 4 gold dragons, so they have more gold available that I have. I don't have a chance unless I spend loads of gold.

Even if I buy the fountain, I am not sure I can make it to the top 2.

It does not look like that insane. The top on in my team has already 462 points.

EDIT: After reading some other comments, It is not that bad. There are people over the thousand points already.

They took back the three gold I won at the spin too :(

400 points is okay from now, imagine you have just breed/hatch diamond hybrids just at the beginning of this event

I'll go for milestones prizes too, don't mind the rank thing even I'm in a group with "users who don't seem to throw their money into the game" but we need so much points...And I don't "love" the first prize dragon too so not a real problem for me, if it was Henna it would be different 😁

Good luck to all !

So... whomever spends the most gold, wins. GG. Thoroughly unenthusiastic about this "event", sounds like more busywork and more desperately trying to make people spend gold.

I have the sky lord fountain available to buy but nothing else of the new game showing up. Restarted several times and no update available. Playing iOS and have never had an issue before. Any ideas?

I tried to put some math to the event. Broad strokes assuming normal play with a minimal expenditure of gold...

Figure I have two nests and one den. I ought to be able to keep them busy a minimum of 20 hours a day. Should do better. That's 180 (maybe more) a day. Send my dragon on 6 hour adventure 3 times a day, maybe fit in an extra 1 hour quest at night. Call that 85. May try to send several 1 hour trips in evening rather than a single 6 hour. Could be another 10-20 per day. Assume over 6 days that half my dragons bred are commons which gives me an average 10 bonus points a day. Also assume I get 25 points from one lucky spin (so far I've collected over 40 today on each account & kept them).

With these assumptions, that puts me at 300 points a day, with a realistic upper limit of 350. By the end of the 6 day event, I will have between 1800 & 2100 points. I won't even reach the first dragon which I already have. There's something wrong with the goals if these assumptions hold up over the event. Maybe there are better bonus points for reaching the milestones as you progress. The spin the wheel is the kicker in the calculations. But still that probably only raises me to the 400 per day mark which means I barely qualify for Pinata.
Im no math genius and have been hoping my broad strokes was just REALLY off. It wasn't. I've been coming up with the same. Too bad, because the one thing I was hopeful for were the goal dragons. Thanks for jotting this down.

Yep! my #1 is approaching 6,000. My 3rd is over 700. On the plus side, I have over 200 now! Lol

That was exactly what I was thinking. I have two nest and one breedig den. I am breeding constantaly but only have 274 and currently at 17th place in my group. I don't know how i am supposed to get any dragons from the milestone prizes. It seems impossible unless i decide to use gold... I have been playing for few years and i am not happy with this event at all
