Extra Information:


Note there is a small display glitch :

The pop up announcing the bonus points for successful breeding appears right over the pop up for the breeding time points. You do get all your points, you just don't see both pop ups.



Elsa;1289921']The little pop up doesn't show the full amount of points when you get the bonus, but you do get all of the Leaderboard Points that you're supposed to have. This is a known issue, which we plan to resolve in a future update.








(IOS)- Arctic Island breeding does count.

(Android)- Event is not showing up on Halloween Version.

Mama Dragon- Pink and Blue, Ultra Rare, 16 hours.

Dragon Ages- You can purchase in the market for 150 gold


Wildflower Spring

Already having issues.... I got the first milestone and I originally got some amount of food, I think around 5000 or so. Before I could take a screenshot, I got the Fruitful loading screen and *poof*! No more food...

The bar on the side scrolls, so you may need to scroll down to see the Leaderboard event icon.

05-03-16, 02:15 PM
Oh goody! I don't care for any of the milestone dragons. The habitat would be nice though if I can get to 1700 points which I doubt since I didn't even prepare for the event.

hestiarulez
05-03-16, 02:15 PM
Yay!!! A bunch of eggs hatched; but already have 4 people ahead of me. Easy decision - not to spend much gold on this.

05-03-16, 02:17 PM
Also, Leaderboard doesn't show on Haloween version. Unfortunately original version crashes at the moment the news list is supposed to be shown, I can see the Leaderboard icon on the side, though :(

I've got no clue whether or not Arctic isles counts, but I'm already breeding something there. If you guys would like, I can check back with the results

Same issue here. I guess I'll try to get some things done that count toward the event but anything else will go on the Halloween version

One further suggestion is to have the groups done by number of nests. Someone with two nests will always have an advantage over someone with only one. Happy playing everyone! I will not spend gold on this event but good luck to those who try to get that beautiful Mama dragon.

JCG812
05-03-16, 02:19 PM
In a group with some pretty large islands, 3 nests etc. Yikes! Good luck to everyone in my group, and to everyone in the community.

Milestone dragons are nice.

I am not sure it is practical - since a player can add additional nests and breeding-den at any point in the game.

@Hawk

You should only be able to see your own. The others should be Island names.

The leader on my board already has 358 points. I have 51. Not even sure how its possible so soon out of the gate. I really do not enjoy these leaderboards so if i get the habitat and snowfall dragon I will be happy

pernmagic
05-03-16, 02:29 PM
Mine has just clicked in, 10pm uk time.... And a tourney and everything else as well ..... Habitate useful but not bothered about the dragons, have the first one anyway ..... Mixed levels participating but I'm 7 th already Oh well I'll do what I can but going to conserve my rather low gold stores and look after my resident dragons for a week ;)

I have 2 nests, but all the leaders in my group have 4 nests and all the gold type dragons. The top two have 3200+ and 2000+ already and the event started less than an hour ago. I guess I should thank them for letting me know right away that there is no point in trying for Mama. It makes things much easier. Sticking to the milestones and my normal playing style without reservation.

ETA: the leader now has almost 4000; 800 in the time it took to write this post. Yeeeesh!

freshfunin2008
05-03-16, 02:34 PM
I didn't have it on my account after 3 hours so i hatched my nests and harvested my food when I saw the tourney and no other update. Now I have it only in 1 account. UGH!!!!

How is that even possible? I couldn't even reach the last milestone in the last leaderboard.

05-03-16, 02:37 PM
I'm just going for the habitat, as I have snowfall, duchess is breed able and I don't like mother :) lots of time to focus on breeding and growing food in 7 days

They are spending gold and lots of it. I would guess speeding breeding/evolving.

Lol I did not think of that. Well they can grey out the buying option once the event starts so you can't buy any more while the leaderboard is on. :)

Does evolution in Arctic Isles add to the points?

05-03-16, 02:46 PM
there's already a battle going on in my group ... the top 2 players both have boosts going right now :(

cdreams1980
05-03-16, 02:47 PM
I don't like to complain, but how is it fair to have Arctic Isles count? And I checked, I'm grouped with players from ios and I'm on Android.

jjblueyes
05-03-16, 02:49 PM
Yes ma'am! Some people last time had leaders already much much higher then that. Hope you enjoy that you can get out of the event but even if I win something I truly hate these events. I won't go on and on. Most folks don't like it. Have a good tourney and event!;)

So with a few hours shaved off we have to have even more points for the last prize then last time? Sweet game

noah1164
05-03-16, 02:52 PM
WTH? I double boosted. Took my Sea dragon off nest. Got milestone 1 of 133 points. Took my dragon I was evolving off. Got milestone 2. It put me ahead at 509 points. Then the stupid fruitful dragon processing screen comes up and rolls me back to only 373 points!? And dragon still off evolver. I'm seriously not happy getting ripped off right at the gate!

I'm iOS and I don't even have Arctic isle unlocked. :rolleyes:

Bastiaan0
05-03-16, 02:56 PM
15 points on the wheel, 3 Mists hatched, 101 points for the first milestone, Valiant done evolving (to epic :))... 386 points and leading :)
And another 75 coming up from the breeding den, never thought I would be happy with a Penumbra fail :p
1 neighbour in the list, so far no ridiculous amounts of points, but that could still come...
Have neither of the milestone dragons, so going to try to get to 4400 points, but won't be spending to much gold on that.
Have the habitat already...
Will try to get Mama, but only if she's in reach in the end...

05-03-16, 02:56 PM
soooo when is android getting arctic isles cuz this is completely unfair

Hawk1
05-03-16, 02:56 PM
Bad start, first milestone was 5000 food, but crashed and when I logged back in in gave me those ridiculous tiles instead. Bleh why am I always hopeful that this game will stop stabbing me in the back :(

I thought that our IDs were not to be posted on our Leaderboard. Well, mine is but most of others look like their island name. PLEASE CHANGE THIS! !! I'm sure I read this on the thread with all the complaints & frustrations about 1st LB event. Thanks!

05-03-16, 02:59 PM
What the heck!!!??? I just hit the first milestone, got awarded 118 crown things, showed up as raked #2 on the board, then my game did "processing" and my bonus disappeared and my rank dropped down to tenth or something. Thanks loads. :confused:

Edit: actually 13th

freshfunin2008
05-03-16, 02:59 PM
So I have the same problem I had last time. I spun the wheel. Got a chest. It said I won a certain amount of points and now it says spin again in 3:59 or what not and my total points is still 0. Last time I sent an email to support and 15 days later they said the problem is fixed. I never got my points. Oh well. I see how it is going to be this time. Just because you get points don't believe it. Check the total. I got points but my total is 0 still.. Hmmmmmmm

Same here. I lost 136 points!? Because it rolled back. Went from 509 to 373. I'm seriously ready to just quick this game. It's enough I spend gold all the time, but don't play games with me. Grrr.

Iloveasherbuns
05-03-16, 03:03 PM
Ok so the leader in my group keeps going up and up and yet they have 0 dragons in the one nest they have 0 dragons breeding and 0 in the evolution flower... How is this possible? They're almost at 1,000 points.

05-03-16, 03:09 PM
I have a decent score after doing some quick breeding for starry night and getting everything up. But I posted on my wall, I am sorry my points seem to be upp-ish, but I am only going for the milestones. :) I SO want a baby starry night! :D Hopefully folks in my bracket check my wall, I am not trying to start any sort of war. Didn't even check the leaderboard. I wish it would start off on the milestone page instead of the leader, cause my silly self forgot to write out the totals I need. I don't have a snowfall or a mother, and a habitat as a reward makes me SO happy with the milestones! <3

Didn't see it asked, no quest this time, correct? I'd love to run a lunar core quest. :)

Leader in my group had 1000 points in the first few minutes, okkkk milestones is really the only way to play this event and S8 pfffffft.

Bastiaan0
05-03-16, 03:12 PM
Forgot to mention... had a rollback on the second milestone prize... it was 4 royal roads, ended up with 5000 apples :)
But it's too bad these rollbacks still happen, S8 really should have a look into that!

Oh, and L......, thanks, but we'll see how things go ;)

DisposableHarlequin
05-03-16, 03:14 PM
My game is glitching and rolling back like crazy. Thankfully it's just been for collecting coins but if this keeps up I'm pretty sure I'm going to lose out on points soon. I feel bad for everyone who already has lost points.
Last leaderboard I collected coins before I attempted to collect points from tasks in case of rollbacks but right now it's glitching and rolling back even if I've been doing stuff on the game for the past few minutes.

05-03-16, 03:19 PM
I boosted, then it was gone like "poof".....it said it lasted for an hour but it was more like a minute.

Yeah, after it rolled back I now got 5 maps instead of the 130 points and a double boost. Wow.
I don't like complaining but that was a lot of points I just lost.

You're going to have to contact S8.

You aren't the only one that has lost an Arctic Isle Dragon. It seems to be somewhat common of an error, to be honest.

seisurreal, Technically you can't opt out, but if you play in the Halloween Version the leadership board doesn't show up and nothing you do counts towards the event. I'm going to log into the main version ever 4 hours to spin and hope for food, but otherwise I'm not participating.

No way I'm gonna win this one, the top two have 9-10 gold giving dragons and they are already using boosts and at 2XX points already.
Whelp, guess I'll just focus on the tournament instead.

I'm just going to try to get all the milestones, not even going to try for first place. (Currently 12th in my group with 143, #1 has 540.) There's no way I'd spend gold unless I see that a small amount would mean the difference between getting the prize dragon and not getting it as the event is ending.

Lvl 137-200 definitely a large spread there between islands on my leaderboard . About the only good thing I can say is everyone that wins Mama has to reach a goal, not just highest score on the leaderboard. Interesting change if they really follow through, not that I didn't want people to win with 250-2100 totals. Oh well back to the tournament which has been more fun than leaderboard.

Good luck to everyone with their hearts set on Mama dragon

As much as I'd love to have that adorable pink dragon I'll pass, Not buying gold when I had a 24 hour sale was difficult but I managed not to cave in to S8.

There are so many glitches with this event it isn't even funny, and S8 knows it but doesn't care because they know people will grump about it here but continue to play.

There's no way I'd spend gold unless I see that a small amount would mean the difference between getting the prize dragon and not getting it as the event is ending.

This is one of the problems for those players in timezones which make it difficult for us to be there at the end. These events finish during the night for us Aussies, and there's just no way I'm willing to forgo sleep for a game. At the end of the last leaderboard event, I went to bed in first place (a reasonable distance in front of second place), only to wake up the next morning in third place, missing out on the Skylord dragon. It left a really bad taste in my mouth, and is one of the reasons I won't be participating this time around.

There's just no way I can see to make this kind of event fair for everyone, regardless of where they are playing from or what device they are playing on, and I'm really disappointed that S8 is persisting with them despite the backlash from players!

I go into this event knowing that I will not be in the top two. Not even CLOSE! I accept that.

So here is my plan...

Breed 20hours/day = 60 crowns
Hatch 20 hours/day = 60 crowns
Evolve 20 hours/day = 60 crowns
Spin (based on last event) 60/day
Bonus crowns avg 10/day

250 x 7 = 1750 total crowns.

I bought the thing that gives 20 crowns every 2.5 hours hoping to get another 100+ per day. Why? I want the habitat and 150 gold for a habitat is cheap! And I might be able to get the first dragon milestone as well. :-)

Relax and enjoy the chance to breed what you want, hatch what you want, evolve what you want - and save food for the next Tale! :-)

However it is run you will always have 80% missing out on the 1st/2nd place prize, it is s8's game and they can develop it how they want, and we can give them feedback on how we view it but ultimately they have to look at the bottom line --- I personally am not into the competitive side of the game so will go for the milestone dragons, play the tournament and watch the competition from the sidelines

Did this start earlier for some? There was nothing about 2.5 hours ago, and when I went in maybe 20 minutes ago, it was up and the high score so far is 150. since I only just started I'm at 0 and thus really far behind.
Also, how are groups made? I'm at level 68 and most people over 100.

I think any score can win. As long as no one in your group was playing technically you can win with 1 point. According to the milestones the final prize being the Mother dragon and not Mama dragon. And the top two scores in the classes win the mama.

The first milestone is 50 points.

Confirmed lie by a strom8 representative we are in fact mixed with Android and iOS

Not sure where you received your information, but there was no lie on this subject.

When you begin the leaderboard event, you are matched with a group of other players with the same platform. When you're matched, your group doesn't change for the duration of the event.

The problem is players starting the event on android can switch over to their iOS devices. Storm 8 does not have control of this if players decide to log into their iOS device.
Feedback has been passed on to the team about the issues of iOS players having the arctic island extra advantage.

Welcome to my Leaderboard world! Haven't dared to look at rankings yet. Had same exact thing on the leaders of both of my games last time. I calculated that even with gold on sale, the diamond dragons purchases alone amounted to more than $1700 on one of the games. (I didn't factor in the cost of rush hatching them.) I can't believe someone would continue to spend like that when they are already 20,000 ahead of 2nd place.
The only reasonable assumption is a hacked game. I could be wrong though.
I am sorry to see this. Perhaps it is from the last leaderboard event?

Very well could be. There are people who use exploits. It would be an easy check to prevent by S8 but I don't think it's a concern to them when money is coming in. They'd have to refund money in many cases.

Leader on my board is already well into 4 figures with a couple people also boosting. The leader's egg, evo color and Arctic isle has not changed yet the score goes up. Curious. Could be lagged island update... maybe.

this pop up comes with a GO button.. but the GO button disappeared after that and i was roped into a group already. any battles or hatching gives me the credits which are recorded as a thumbnail and on the leaderboard.

my acct has been pre-grouped.. the top leader already is at 12,699 credits at 6 days 14 hr 56 min of event!

everything has been tracked in the leaderboard even if you choose to open the alternative Halloween DS app or don't check status!

Hi Deede99! :) just wanted to let you know in case you didn't already that Duchess is still breedable! This made me happy because she is so pretty but I knew I couldn't get that many points. I still have a chance to breed her. Is it sad my personal goal is the habitat? :)

It's more than possible to jump up 340 points that quickly. That person either planned out timing with long breeding, hatching, and evolution times so they could gather everything at the same time or was speeding things up by spending gold, with or without a boost. Good planning and/or spending gold isn't cheating.
Because we knew when this leaderboard was going to start people could prepare beforehand. In preparation I had looked up the evolution times of all the dragons I wanted to evolve and had the longest one evolving before the event even started. I also looked up the hatching times and rarities of all the eggs in my storage so I could plan those out, and I had things ready to go in my arctic isles as well.

Whelp, that was supposed to be a reply to kimandamelia.

Thank you for posting your math. With a second nest, it looks like Snowfall should be a milestone I can reach without a lot of extraordinary effort. From what I remember about the first event, I think your bonus and spin numbers may be a bit low, but then we're talking about whether we can get to Duchess or not. So far today, the spin numbers are optimistic as only have collected points once on 4 spins between two accounts.

chuckyt888
05-03-16, 08:07 PM
Those two things aren't mutually exclusive. There is recourse for someone ending up with a banned account they've spent money on... might not be something S8 would bother with.

Yep same situation here. The last leaderboard I was in did not come anywhere close to escalating this quickly (though it did the last few days). Big point potentials on this one. Figured it would be this way due to the dragon involved. There might be 10 people in my group with over 1000 soon... with that being the case a few thousand points wont mean much to them despite the leaders trying to mark their territority early.

I'll just sit back, laugh and go for the milestones.

In order to get all milestones at 4,400 points, you need to get about 630 points every day! I don't have any of the dragons and will always accept a habitat as a prize, but don't think I can get there without using boosts. I don't seem to have very good luck with breeding lately, so I may end up with a 'Mother'-less Mother's Day.

Yes, I know Duchess is still breedable, but I tried and tried and no luck. So I moved on to other dragons - but not much luck lately breeding anything, I have to say. Hoping I'd get Duchess as a fail for something else, just like I got Cupcake.

Android and iOS players are NOT separated like we were told they would be.

This event is the most poorly camouflaged attempt at a money grab I have ever seen in an online game. Great job, TL. You have really outdone yourself.

Despite all the negative feedback on the first leaderboard event, and despite all the reasonable suggestions for improvements made by players, TL did absolutely nothing to make this event more fair and more fun for everyone. It is obvious they care nothing about player enjoyment and satisfaction- just money and more money. That's a sure-fire way to lose player loyalty and income, so TL might want to wise up by the time the next LB event rolls around. I've already noticed a lot less event-oriented action happening on neighbor and community visits than last time, so I'm guessing many, many folks realize this event is simply a money-making scam.

I have no problem spending money to support the games I enjoy, but this event, which is obviously set up to push gold sales and to reward those who spend the most money, makes me NOT want to spend my money.

You made it impossible for me to participate in a competitive way, so at least let me throw in the towel and spend a calm, relaxed week getting more than four of my dragons to lv 15.

She is a beautiful dragon and I was surprised she was still in the market. Haven't tried for her before but just might have to now! Holy moly you got all three! That's pretty awesome! I just squeaked in to get the first one who alas is still in storage. I really hope you are able to get her! :)

Has anyone noticed that only 1st and 2nd get the Mama grand prize dragon? I thought last time it was the top 3? (Maybe I'm remembering incorrectly??) With all the complaints, I can't believe they are awarding even fewer places with the grand prize!!??!! I hate this event.

It was only the top 2 who got Skylord in the last event. I think third place got a trophy.

The top two in my group are already up to 7642 and 3210 points, so at least I know from early on that I have no chance of winning in my group.

How is it possible to get so many points in such a short time?! :eek:
I had four eggs ready to hatch and finished breeding when the event started. I got 390 points when I hatched them and I was first in my group. Now there are three people in my group that have a similar number of points as me. Last time the situation was similar at the beginning and I was fourth at the end, so I do not hope to get the main prize. I am not going to spend gold, even if I could.

At first I wasnt going to participate in this event, then I saw the milestones!!! YOU CAN GET A HABITAT! AND THE MAMA DRAGON!! I'm giving this all i got... Forget about the leader board, I'm going for the milestones!! I'm coming for you snowball dragon....:o

You can't get the mama dragon from milestones. You get the mother dragon for 4400 points. Idk if you know that. :( I hate to be the bearer of bad news. I just don't want you to waste a ton of gold and be disappointed. In any case I wish you the best of luck on the event.

Anybody else having trouble with points posting? I'm collecting crops and involving dragons and points aren't posting. I logged off and locked in several times and no help. Any ideas?

We get points for Crops????? I dont think so, i never got any, and i have collected several crops since last night (for us in UAE it was night 9:30 pm)

Last time I didn't even get any of the milestone dragons. All I got for my hard work was a bunch of balloons. And I was third in my group. I'm not sure why I had such a hard time getting enough points for at least one dragon. I'll give this a shot and see how points go...I would at least like the habitat. Wouldn't cry if I got a dragon too. :p I do think the mama dragon is really cute but I'm just not real competitive, for one, and I'm realistic and know it's out of my reach. Good luck to all on achieving whatever goals you set for yourself. :)

Can someone from TL/S8 please explain how somebody can get 6074 points in 12 hours legitimatly??? We really deserve an answer.

In my group the top 3 have 6074,5502,5070 respectivly, the fourth player has 541.

So much for balancing the leaderboard event, it really does take any fun out of it.

It doesn't have to be rigged. You just spend gold on speed hatching eggs from the market.

For example, if you buy 241 water eggs and speed hatch them, you get 8,676 points for hatching them.

Total cost:
241 x 10,000 coins = 2,410,000 coins
241 x 12 gold for hatching = 2,892 gold
241 x 20 seconds to buy each egg and speed hatch it = 1 hour 20 minutes 20 seconds total (if done nonstop)
Cost of 2900 gold at 30% off = US $69.99

Note that this requires only one nest and would have the effect of looking like the nest is empty most of the time.

I had not thought of that, but I find it hard to believe that people would spend that sort of real world money for one Dragon (or 4 fi you have none of the milestone ones). Maybe TL/S8 should try to find a way to keep the big spenders/speed breeders in seperate leaderboards. But I guess it is the luck of the draw.:rolleyes:

I agree, but Dragon Story WAS not and SHOULD not be that sort of game. It is shame that TL/S8 are taking this route.:(

I do not mind a little competition, but it should be a level playing field, not who can throw the most money at it to win.

How have we been grouped? I'm on level 69, there's another 60+ level person, a 70+, 2 x 80's, 1 x 90 and the rest........ 100+. I came 9th in last event, been up at 2nd this time but not expecting to get anywhere near there again. Would seem fairer to group similar levels together

05-04-16, 06:17 AM
So far it seems my group seems pretty normal, places 4 to last only have around 300 points each, 3rd has 600, 2nd has 800, and 1st has 1600, I'm one of those at the bottom because I'm not participating

Kinda annoyed so far6 people are boosting all6 practically 2000 almost 3000. I thought we were going to be grouped differently... Just because i have gold and money to spend doesn't mean i was going to use it... I decided after the first leadership i was apart That i was only going to go after milestones because it sucked for the people who were against me now I'm playing with no boost and spending and it sucks for me..i even mentioned that a bunch of times in chats ... Thanks s8 you assume how we play and group us cool whatever happy moms day to me sure know how to alienate your customers

Same here, but it seems the 1st place in my group is determined to get it, as I see him with 2000 points now with everyone else pretty much the same as I last checked, so there are still players who are willing to spend, despite being a group where nobody else has points that comes close to his.

kimandamelia
05-04-16, 07:35 AM
It's more than possible to jump up 340 points that quickly. That person either planned out timing with long breeding, hatching, and evolution times so they could gather everything at the same time or was speeding things up by spending gold, with or without a boost. Good planning and/or spending gold isn't cheating.
Because we knew when this leaderboard was going to start people could prepare beforehand. In preparation I had looked up the evolution times of all the dragons I wanted to evolve and had the longest one evolving before the event even started. I also looked up the hatching times and rarities of all the eggs in my storage so I could plan those out, and I had things ready to go in my arctic isles as well.

Whelp, that was supposed to be a reply to kimandamelia.

349 points I can certainly see, but over 1,500? In a matter of minutes? Don't see how any planning can make that happen. However, being on Android, I don't have the privilege of having the Arctic Isles, so I'm not sure how many nests and breeding roosts you are allowed to have.

What a joke. First place has over 6,000. All seem near level 200 while I'm level 130 something. I did not set up anything before the event as I was disgusted we were doing this again so soon and it turned me off the game. This morning woke up and was in last place. I don't care a bit but wish I hadn't been so disgusted that I didn't even want to play so I could at least get a habitat. We'll see. Have more important things I'm worried about at the moment.

05-04-16, 07:50 AM
As of now, the top has over 3000, boosted right out of the gate, the next 4 are over 1000. I am in eighth position. Got Skylord last time with a little gold. Now he is just one of the herd. Will just play for the milestones, which is fun. What a liberating feeling to not compete. :) saving my gold for something worthwhile.

05-04-16, 08:06 AM
Now my group 1st place has roughly 3900, the rest are roughly the same, as 2nd is still 800, 3rd has 600, then everyone from 4 to last are at the 300 to 400 points with very little differences between each one

I find it funny how 1st place boosted to increase the lead when he had more than double 2nd place's points and nobody seems to care as everyone pretty much got the same points after 3 hours

05-04-16, 08:52 AM
People like to try and stake their claim early in these leaderboard events. There are a handful who tried it and are going to get stung for it on my board. Leader yesterday had 3000+ within a couple hours and is now almost doubled up by 1st and 2nd. A few others are in the 2k range and had boosted early to try and scare people off.

I don't like saying it but the more people who get turned off by how these leaderboard events go the better.


Now my group 1st place has roughly 3900, the rest are roughly the same, as 2nd is still 800, 3rd has 600, then everyone from 4 to last are at the 300 to 400 points with very little differences between each one

Just smart planning & continuous breeding, hatching and evolution. I have never gotten any rollbacks so thank you storm 8.

05-04-16, 11:02 AM
Maybe someone can explain to me the rationale for some spending so much including speeding, buying, extra roost, 4 nests going, boosting all to get a nice but normal dragon as limiteds usually go for 250. I'm not fond of the milestone ones either. I guess I don't have the 'proper' mindset for this Motherboard ;) event. Sucks if it's taking the place of any other Mother's Day event and not sure why we have another 30 round tournament either ( not participating ).

As those in my group jockey for first, they will probably go nuts at the end. That's all well and good but how about having this be opt in so the rest of us don't need to see it all the time. Do it separately. Seems easy enough!

So odd it was going up over 13 then down. Not that 11400
Isn't a huge number a day in. The whole thing is odd. I really don't like the event and as the polls show I'm not alone in that. Long week this is gonna be. Tournament has been the toughest I've ever done in all my years. I might need to take a dragon break. If my game isn't at least a little enjoyable I'm not sure why I'm playing it.

Why has the last milestone increased by 500 crowns, honestly don't get it! This is going to sound uppity but why only have expired dragons as milestones what is in it for the player who has all these already. God forbid there be another event like this but how about have new dragons, leave the older dragons to the wheel and drop decoration and coin!

Edit - 11-15600. My bad.

I'm laughing every time someone posts a crazy amount on their leaderboard. Hopefully mine gets spicy soon, the two highest here are only 1.8k and 1.6k

We don't get bonus points for common and unbreedable dragons. You'll be able to find this under the info tab in the leaderboard event.

I'm only focusing on the Milestones for the habitat, Snowfall, and Mother dragon only cause I don't have any of them.

My top 3 players in 1 account are constantly leapfrogging each other using boost but they are all still under 2000 points so far. They have not gone ballistic yet.

I finished day 1 with about 400. This morning, 1st place in my group has over 14,000. I think I'll just work on the milestones!

That makes me laugh! Thank you for this! I'm in your boat too. I have 700 and am in 11th place in my group.

Runner up is at 810 points, feels far more exciting than having 10k+ points leaders, doesn't it? :p;)

Does anyone know if you use a boost, do you get the boost on the extra points for hatching a super rare or rare?

Yes you do, the only thing that doesn't boost is the wheel
