Win the new Tropic Tide Dragon!



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.
If you are still missing points, please send an email to support@storm8.com so an agent can check your game.

Within 20 minutes #1 is at 1,170 and #2 is at 635.

I actually didn't mind the last event because even though it was competitive it was still close. This is just ridiculous and won't be participating.

I think the leaderboard is broken, you can spin every 45 seconds. This can't be the intended plan.

I can participate in those without going out of my way for the main prize. Won't boost my participation for duration of event.

I participate for the milestone prizes.

I am with you, I do exactly the same thing, I gave up trying to keep up with people who have money to spend on the game and just shoot for the individual goals. That said, I still believe this is an error and so I won't be participating in the things other than the spin until it is sorted as I prepped a few things for this purpose.

Kinda glad I don't like the grand prize in this one all too much because even with 795 points already, I'm #5 in my group, with #1 at 1064.

That said, I do like the habitat.

UPDATE (2:07PM): In the last 3 minutes, #1 is now at 1682 points, just to give people an idea of how fast this event is moving.

The last milestone dragon is 8500 points. I barely got the Mother Dragon on the last leaderboard event, and I spent a bit of gold. This is ridiculous.
Never mind the fact that the top three in my group are using the double boost...

Exactly.. this is ridiculous.. how can anybody get upto 700+ points within minutes?? I also ended up winning the mother's day event spending a little amount of gold.. may be some 20 or 30.. actually wanted to be at third place to get food and maps.. no use of the dragon and the trophy:-(:-( but this time it seems people are spending gold left right and center.. what for I don't know.. I don't even like this dragon..

I just noticed the points needed for the milestones - I'm thinking that's why the constant spinning? Also, at this point, I already have enough palm trees for a few islands full of them.

I'm in it for the habitat! The short spin intervals are imho leveling the field if someon really wants to do this all day long... Be my guest! It's fairer than spending gold. Also like the reward for feeding dragons. Thanks for the improvements! Still not liking it, but less disliking it now

They added feeding to the list of things to do to get points, now it's breeding, hatching, evolving, and feeding 500 food.

I got over 200 points in 5 minutes. I had eggs ready to hatch and move to nest and take out of evolution temple. Then I spun for over 100 on the wheel. I went from last to 5th in my group. How long that will last....probably not long.

Oh it seems the short spins were a glitch. Because making it fair is the goal of the game. Not. Well 500 points toward my habitat... Yay?

Looks like they fixed the spin. This is definitely going to be individual glory only as there is little way for someone to catch up to a player who go a bunch of points before they fixed it.

amerirish

Dang :mad:

BTW, sometimes you hate to be right....I posted this in the discussion thread before the Leaderboard started:

"I have a sinking feeling that the milestones will be harder to get than last time It seems too many players were able to get all the milestones last time with spending little or no gold. They're probably going to tweak the numbers just so it's harder this time "

8,500 for the last milestone is definitely much, much harder than last time :(

45 minute update: #1 = 4,264; #2 = 1,857; #3 = 1,475

These events are starting to be less fair every time... Now it just depends on your food stock... low level players don't stand a chance, I'm on 812k apples (3648 points with 2x boost), but I know some players have millions of food... Really unfair :(

sipland
06-03-16, 11:29 AM
Darn, didn't even notice the short interval until a few minutes before the fix. Seems like many in my grouping took advantage of it though. A few have boosts going already. My goal is to get the Coral Canyon habitat. Based on the last leaderboards I won't even get close to Tsunami.

Feels like this new "feed your dragons" thing is intended to make you waste your food so you have less for the tales...

I honestly don't think Storm 8 cares what we think or how we feel about what goes on in the game. obviously They don't take into consideration what we say when planning all they care about in planning is how can we get even MORE money from this event over how much we got at the last one. with the leaderboard the majority here say we don't like and to stop. we have also said what they can do to improve and they take what we say and do just the opposite. For example the number of items needed to get the final milestone prize we said the number is to high there is no way the average player can even come close to getting without spending gold. so what they took from this was " huh the first event we made the top prize needing 3,900 and people complained it's too high so let's increase to 4,400" we again said it is too high so what did they take from that " hum lets double it with the 3rd leader event. this now tells me ether they don't read what we say, they read but just see blah blah blah, or they just don't care!
Sorry just needed to vent even though they still wont hear us.
Now I will still play as normal breed dragons ( there is always limited dragons to try for), keep hatching and evolving and so on. I will not spend gold on boosts or anything else which means I won't get many of the milestone prizes again. :(

I never waste food, I just might feed the dragons I was already intended to feed...
And we just had a tales, enough time to replenish on apples ;)
Not going to waste it right now, first lets see how things develop. Looks like the prize habitat is new, won't have any difficulties reaching that milestone. Already have Tsunami and Puffer, never seen Clownfish before... New as well?
Got 333 gold to spend at the moment, maybe I'll try to get to it. But 8500 points is A LOT...

Does anyone remember how many days the last leaderboard was and how many points were needed for the dragons? I am trying to figure out if I will even be capable of attaining Tsunami.

Werekatze
06-03-16, 11:44 AM
I knew the 45 second spins had to be a glitch so I didn't take advantage of it for more than a couple spins before I realized it had to be a bug. Figured they would find a way to retract the freebie points, as that's a pretty significant head start!! 5 people in my group popped boosts immediately and first place has almost 2k already. I really like that coral statue as a decoration but I can't justify the cost of 150 gold for a decoration, even if it can help me get the last milestone. As it is, last leaderboard I had to cave and spend gold just to nab last milestone and now they are making it twice as hard? I'm stressed out already and there are 11 days of this event to go! Cause, you know... want that clownfish... Want a second gold dragon... Real life expenses...

06-03-16, 11:46 AM
So wow, last time if you were able to get 4400 points during the leaderboard event you won 3 dragons. This time, that same 4400 points will win you ZERO dragons. And you pretty much had to spend some gold even to get the 4400 (or at least I did, and I'm a pretty dedicated player). But hey, don't worry, you can earn more leaderboard points by burning through all your food so you won't have any left for the next Tales! Thanks guys! An event that a majority of the players didn't like the first two times just got even worse. Well done!

Currently at 2nd place in my group. After last event I figured out that if I keep my stored data as empty as possible I have more time till the app crashes which gives me time to do stuff on my island and get points to reach the milestones. Also means that not all images have loaded yet and I have no idea what those milestones look like lol

TwiWoods
06-03-16, 11:46 AM
Looks like 773 points/ day to get to 8.5k for the last milestone. I'll have to check some numbers to see if that's doable for me.

And...WOW...with the increase in points needed I may JUST barely hit the habitat. I didn't think I could like this event any less but amazingly I do!

It's only noon here PST. In my group two leaders are at 4,368 & 4,122. I would love to play but I don't have a chance. I feel like I should not have started to try for Tropic Tide. It's rediculous! Hoping for the milestone fish Dragons.

06-03-16, 12:23 PM
In the first Leaderboard event a TL person posted that they were playing along with us. Since then they have changed the way they paired us up. The second event they paired the gold players with each other. Could there be a possibility that they put a TL member in to bait those that spend gold & push it so that if someone wants to stay in the lead they will have to buy more gold? In the second event it kind of seemed that way. Now so far in the first hour the first place player was already in the 3K range. I feel that it is unfair and conflict of interest that they should be allowed to play. After all this is a cheating event but is it fair for them to cheat us? Even Contests like Publishers Clearinghouse don't allow those that are affiliated with the business to enter the contest.

Are boosts supposed to work on wheel spin points? I used a couple of 1.5 boosts last time, and never got boosted points from spinning. ...if it does, explains why ppl were using them with 45 second spin glitch. I didn'the even spin then, too many things going wrong in my game to add another possible problem. Hope the points can be adjusted fairly.

Good luck all!

I can't remember but do "not found through breeding" dragons give you points now? I remember the first event it didn't. I was able to get second place last time but my group wasn't very competitive. I have two nests this time but first place has 4 nests. I just really want to get the habitat and the Puffer dragon since I couldn't breed hom before he left.

Yes, they are supposed to. At least, on my account they did for all prior fleaderboard events ;)

I've never used a boost and probably won't this time either. Lol I'd no doubt mess it up some how and then be mad at myself for wasting gold...Think I'll be happy if I only get the habitat and if I get a dragon I'll count it as a bonus.

I'm glad that glitch with the spin wheel didn't last. I wasn't about to spin every 50 or so seconds, I would have to sit and be on the game all day if that were the case. I have like 529 points. I don't really care for the dragon and probably have no chance of even getting it due to my group being so competitive.. I'm playing the habitat & I'm gonna try to get as many individual prizes as I can.

06-03-16, 01:05 PM
I'm debating whether it's worth it to buy the Coral Sculpture....for 150 gold I could gather about 140 points a day (give or take, depending on my schedule) so approximately 1540 points gained overall. The only things I want are the milestone habitat and the Clownfish dragon. I have no delusion that I would be able to win the grand prize. Any thoughts?

Some picked up a lot of points from the spin glitch... My only spin has been 2 Palm trees haha typical and I doubt very much that I can get 800 points a day.

The leader in my group has 3,387 pts with 1 nest and 1 den with no gold bearing dragons, I am on 933 pts but have sped up and evolved Kintsugi to lvl 7 just to have my gold dragons in sync! I normally take new gold dragons to lvl 7 straight away so nothing new on that plus 3 nests and 2 dens. Point being my leader must have dumped an awful amount of gold to get to that level already, just an observation!

I have found the only way I can deal with these events without getting annoyed at the blatant revenue gathering is to just play as normal, and leave the leaderboard placings race to those that are happy to spend gold. It is NOT a fair competition, because it completely depends on the group you are in. I was placed in the last one with someone with 11 gold producing dragons, and 4 nests. No one else stood a chance. This time the leader on my board is 1200 ahead of second place, and we are only a couple of hours in.

Also this time you are encouraged to use up your food. I save my food for the dragons I absolutely want to level up, and take events I want to take part in.

So good luck to those that want to go hard and win at this event. But I will be trudging along behind, happily playing my game as usual, and not going grey worrying about it :)

These events are starting to be less fair every time... Now it just depends on your food stock... low level players don't stand a chance, I'm on 812k apples (3648 points with 2x boost), but I know some players have millions of food... Really unfair :(

I had almost 400k food until last week, when I decided to feed a bunch of dragons and levels one up to 15. Now I have under 100k. I have such great timing.


It's only noon here PST. In my group two leaders are at 4,368 & 4,122. I would love to play but I don't have a chance. I feel like I should not have started to try for Tropic Tide. It's rediculous! Hoping for the milestone fish Dragons.

Wow. The leader in my group has 800 or so and is boosting. I thought that was bad. Lol.

Oh, for crying out loud...i was keeping as much of a positive outlook as I could on this. Who is making the decisions up high that are about to ruin this game? They're jacking up the world events, and now we need almost double the points just to make the first dragon? The ONLY redeeming quality to the leaderboard events is the milestones. i don't care you put a new dragon at the end. This is ridiculous.

Oh, and Arctic Isles still counts yeah? Ridiculous.

PS...I'm not ngry for the arctic isles counting toward leaderboard points because I want the tidal whatever dragon either, as I don't participate for that (though technically that's still a huge issue for those that do)...it's because all of these points are set so high, and android users are the red headed stepchild once again...

tuffyjkitten
06-03-16, 03:31 PM
Well, we get points for evolving and that required feeding dragons, so now we get points for both the feeding and the evolving. Don't quite see how that's wasting food unless you weren't evolving anything to start with.

Since your an academic, I am sure you know that one should make statements like this supported by facts and that the source of that data should be either comprehensive or randomly sampled. Please elaborate.

As for all the early jumps, I considered that strategy. Spend some gold upfront to get many on your board to give up early. Could be less gold intensive than waiting until the end and racing many more people who thinkthey canwinfor that final push.

It seems like they've randomised the group selections. Previously you used to get lumped with a lot of people at your level (similar number of gold dragons, nests, level, etc) but I've noticed there's no real heavy weights in my group so far. Like some half half as many gold dragons as I do, or less. In the last leaderboard (which I didn't play seriously) a lot of the people in my group had won the previous one (had skylord or trophies) and so it was a pretty heated race.

I think they've realised that if they keep lumping their most dedicated players together, all the collectors will be forced into a situation where they can't get the next dragon to keep their collection complete. Once they miss a dragon, well, what's to keep them trying so hard for future dragons to maintain a complete collection? Meanwhile, baby accounts end up getting the top prizes without even trying hard.

I think this is a good move. It keeps their long time, dedicated players happy. The only issue might be how high they raised the bar for milestone prizes. Doubling the max is pretty steep. I don't think most players will get the Clownfish dragon. I don't think the ability to earn points from feeding makes up for this.

JustKay
06-03-16, 05:09 PM
I'm debating whether it's worth it to buy the Coral Sculpture....for 150 gold I could gather about 140 points a day (give or take, depending on my schedule) so approximately 1540 points gained overall. The only things I want are the milestone habitat and the Clownfish dragon. I have no delusion that I would be able to win the grand prize. Any thoughts?

From memory of my calculations during Skylord, if you can regularly collect, this haul is better than switching on the extra breeding den (as long as you can keep your nests busy hatching). The target for the milestones are pretty high this time around so I'm only going for the milestones, but have bought a coral already. It's a nice decoration regardless.

JustKay
06-03-16, 05:15 PM
I can't remember but do "not found through breeding" dragons give you points now? I remember the first event it didn't. I was able to get second place last time but my group wasn't very competitive. I have two nests this time but first place has 4 nests. I just really want to get the habitat and the Puffer dragon since I couldn't breed hom before he left.


You'll get nest and evolution time credit but no bonus for being rare, et al.

Are you sure? Even "not breedable" dragons have a rarity for the sake of battling. I remember hatching eggs from storage to get my points up massively. Enough to win Skylord and to make the milestone numbers for the Mama event.

Pretty much resigned to not getting the last milestone. I cannot believe they did that. 8500 points. After all the negative response from players, they make the leaderboard event even worse...not better?

So he spent gold just to gain 600 points? That's a waste of gold

Not to mention spending gold in the first place for this is already a waste lol

I'll spend my gold on the new Kintsugi Dragon when I have an empty nest, not on this event

Yah, this was exactly why I was so angry earlier. The one thing they did right in this event was the milestones. Will have to see how the extra days and the feeding factor in with this. Not good with numbers, but it feels like they messed up the only thing good for the community in this. ><

Totally agree. 1 point per 500 food isn't going to amount to much unless you have hundreds of thousands of food to sling around your Isle and don't care about getting the last dragon in the next Tales. Sound great, right? Ugh. The wheel glitch was another nice kick in the pants for those who missed the chance to exploit it. Some of the people who did use the glitch should be able to reach the milestones, I suppose. Yay. How fun. And how fair.

The wheel exploit points people gained should be removed. They can do that easily assuming they are using any normal relational database to store data. It's not fair to people gunning for the prize. I'd be irate if I was a serious spender like that.

Not sure who is going to be interested in the leaderboards outside of heavy gold spenders anymore given the ridiculous milestone for the last prize.

On page 2 or 3 of this thread, someone reported getting 500 points from the glitch. Nice and fair, huh? Not that I blame anyone for exploiting the glitch, I would have, too, if I wasn't sleeping at the time. I'm annoyed with TL for their sloppiness in allowing a easily detectable glitch like that to go live, especially during an event where points matter so much. What are they going to do to compensate the players who didn't exploit the glitch? Absolutely nothing is my guess.

That is NOT COOL!, and yes I know I am shouting as there is no other way to react. I used gold to buy Kintsugi and have taken it up to lvl 7 but normally I would take it to lvl 10 straight anyway but I didn't! I am currently 2nd but not participating, feeding Chess and thinking about Porcelain as I have needed the battling lately.
I really think this game has changed to a cash cow, can't actually think the last time I actually bred a dragon, oops can, since trying for Valiant I have bred 4 Dapper, couldn't get 1 before this and In that time I have bred Anubis, Mercury, Black Diamond which are double. I have been trying to breed Valiant non stop since it arrived!

Interesting, I am the only player in my group of top 4 gaining points but as I have said that is my normal play with new gold dragons, makes me wonder if we are playing against dummy games as competition for revenue! Now receiving gold from Kintsugi and not spending to lvl it up to 10.

BTW, sometimes you hate to be right....I posted this in the discussion thread before the Leaderboard started:

"I have a sinking feeling that the milestones will be harder to get than last time It seems too many players were able to get all the milestones last time with spending little or no gold. They're probably going to tweak the numbers just so it's harder this time "

8,500 for the last milestone is definitely much, much harder than last time :(

And I said you were probably correct. Darn it. Why did you have to go be right. I don't even enjoy logging on. I really can't stand any of this event. Yes the peeps are already thousands ahead and boosting their little bank accounts like crazy. I have most of the dragons. I will be happy with the habitat that I can't place till I level up. :/

Lol, my idea too! Anyone else notice the tournament dragon is a Blue Tang? Dory, to match Nemo!

I so want a Nemo and a dory, I want to do a " finding Nemo themed area I want/Need to get the sculpture not for the points but for a decoration.

Personally I don't want to win the leaderboard dragon because I personally think he is ugly and do not want on my island.

What annoys me about the leaderboard events is how much of it is up to chance. You're not always guaranteed points from a spin, and if you do, you could get as few as 10. These groups don't seem to be divided fairly either (level 86 sitting with a bunch of level 120s). It's frustrating when TL doesn't listen to us and decides to make the event harder.... 8500 points for the last milestone... I've said this earlier but I still can't believe it...

Am I crazy or are the milestones set much higher than previous Leaderboard events? I could be mistaken but I think the habitat for the Motherly was set around 1.3k ? The current is 3k!! Also, the 1 POINT FOR 500 APPLES IS SO ABSURD! Almost laughable really. In previous Leaderboard event we could Quest for points which was great, now it's 1 point per 500 apples hahah really TL, REALLY? As if the Leaderboard event wasn't already a thorn in the side of nearly all players, you went and actually made it worse..didn't think it could be done but TL proved me wrong. Congratulations! Hahahha

Yep, I am level 75 grouped with 110 and higher. When I first got on yesterday the leader who is level 115 already had 1500 points. Guess he spun the wheel a bunch before they fixed. He has two nests, only one has had an egg and one den with nothing in it.

Speaking of the milestones, I won't be getting the last prize since I've decided I won't be participating, so I only play when I have free time and not watching the clock at all, so I think I'll just get the habitat and that's it

Not interested in anything else, despite I would like the other dragons, those high points required just discourages me

It's bad when YOU are discouraged, you're like the Bill Gates of Dragon Story seriously lol, you're the "target " players they're depending on to bank roll this type of event. ...hey TL looks like you just lost one of your Whales! ☺

Thanks! I'm surprised by how far I am already. I think all the boxes are random prizes but I got this at the 3.8 k point that I just hit.

Haven't been using gold except for one 7 gold boost but I had a lot of food stashed away and an ultra rare snow angel ready to hatch on the Arctic Isles and another one being bred when the event started. And of course both nests and breeding den ready on the main island and evolutions ready on both islands.

Good planning pays off ☺. Unfortunately I'm a step child, Android user so no artic for me lol. Plus I only have one breeding den and 2 nests ( by choice ) so that makes for very s-l-o-w progress haha. I'm aiming for the habitat, I'd be more than happy with that ☺

Yes, thankfully they announced the event the previous day - and I got very lucky with the timing of the ultra rares. :)

But they should definitely have equal features for Android - as it is, it's very unbalanced for you guys. :(

It's a messed up advantage, no offense to you IoS users, one day I'll join you...but it's not just DS, CS and FS2 are really bad to android users, I think droids miss out on 40% of the content on FS2 at least. Seriously, if you're gonna discriminate like that, why even offer the game to users other than IoS to start? >< Gah, sorry, a bit off topic. I am crawling as well, building up food to do a mass feeding and do a boost to see how much I can get on the milestones. Stuff is double the price now, but we have more time and the silly food added. So we shall see how this goes.

Ugh, I hate getting angry. My only living granddad is 2 states away, I can't travel and he is to the point hospice is calling the family in...:/ So i do apologize for a little rant i had to get off my chest so i can decompress.

You don't get almost 4000 points by only using gold for one 1.5x boost at this stage. Nobody is judging here (well most people don't) but let's at least keep it real.

Also, Kennedward is a long time forum member who has contributed greatly to the community. He is discouraged with the way the game has headed as many others are. He's in the majority.

Yes it WAS, lol! :D I had been collecting them for months. I usually don't feed anyone anymore except to get bombs. And for bombs I evolve from level 3 to 4 so it takes hardly any food. I also don't do all the tales to be able to keep collecting more food faster.

I despise the Leaderboard event BUT I decided to play it MY way, I'm not competing with anyone, if there is a milestone prize that I like and seems worth the work, I'll shoot for it but I won't spend a single bit of money and I wont invest resources outside of what I WANT to, i.e. feeding for points, an insulting "reward" of 1 point at that! I have no problem or hard feelings towards players who spend gold, be it a little or a lot because I'm not going to let a competition over a pea sized animated dragon get to me. However what I do have a problem with is the grouping of players...it's in no way an even playing field, not even close. Also the IOS and Android players being tossed together. .everyone is aware of the substantial advantage IOS users have in this so I won't beat a dead horse. I think you misinterpreted my reply to Kennedward, my point is that he is obviously a dedicated and ambitious player, when events discourage players such as him you'd think TL would get the hint.

Just saw on the community board of another team lava game that there is a hack for the leaderboard events. I don't care to partake so I'm not, but maybe that's why they have so many? It's sad when people learn how to hack these games. I also missed the first half of the convo so I don't know how they are hacking or I would report it.

2 people in my group have boosted since my last post, now the points are roughly:

1. 3000
2. 1500
3. 700 (same player with 600 in my last post)
4-6. 600
7-9. 400
10-14. 300
15-18. 200
19-20. 100

Just realized I made a typo in my previous post, should be 8 to 20, but doesn't really matter anyways lol

To my surprise, just checked now and everyone's points are pretty much the same with very little increase, all of which are around 100 or so increase, so that's reasonable, considering there's the spin, as well as evolving, breeding, and hatching, all of which can give you some points, 100 increase is fairly normal.

So I won't bother writing them down as the placement are basically the same, the same players in their exact same spot. Just glad I'm not in those groups with crazy high points, mine is just a few guys who boosted, and that's it. For now, that is

Oh definitely, there's a hack for any type of play you can imagine. I encountered this during the 1st leaderboard event, player 19 went from 100ish points to 14k in minutes, went to their island and absolutely no movement, no breeding, no eggs in the nest, no fountain. ...nothing so it's obvious what was happening. I reported it, and nothing, they could have cared less but there are "some" games that have been known to create Ghost players. .it's done to ensure that other players begin or continue to spend money to get or stay ahead.

This event is just gambling by another name. Anyone who spends gold has NO idea if another in the group is going to make a last minute dash for the finish line. ANY money/gold spent is a gamble, pure and simple. I don't gamble in real life, not about to start in a digital game.

What I find odd is the psychology of it all. Such gambling style game activity will inevitably attract a different type of player (and drive others away). I'm not sure that is beneficial to the longevity of the game, frankly.

S8: could you make it possible for us to send gifts to each other besides gold, especially tiles ? They are sooo much better than gold. A collector's dream.

The top 7 or 8 in my group are all spread from 2,100 down to 1,000. I'm 5th on 1,274. I've noticed a few boosts being used, but no-one seems to have rocketed ahead as in some of the other groups mentioned here.

I wasn't going to buy that darn coral thing, but I just saw it (3 of them actually) on a group member's island and I have to say it is a beautiful decoration - would go perfectly with the habitat. NOW I'm tempted to buy it, not for the points, but for the aesthetics! It is really pretty.

I'm using the "down time" to evolve some of my duplicate Diamond hybrids that have been languishing at level 3. Actually, right now my primary Anubis is going to Level 10, but I did do little Crusader to 4 before that and young Miss Gold can go in next.

Not feeding for points because my current food objective is to get to a base line of 200,000 apples and I'm sitting on 180,000 right now.

@DeeDe99 I know! The Coral is so pretty! I would buy it as a deco if the price wasn't so steep.

I bought a second 7 gold boost because my nests, breeding den and evolution temple were ready and I wanted to feed more dragons (it's hard to stop once you start, lol!).

So far during the event I've fed:

- Battlesteed to level 15
- Diamond hybrids up a level or two
- the following darlings to level 10: Galaxy, Moon, Nouveau, Spirit Queen, Amphora, Mistmoth, Kitsune, Firefly
- various others a few levels here and there

It's so refreshing to have a line of dragons for the temple waiting for their epic evolution instead of just babies! :D

I would love to take Rainbow to level 15 but I'm starting to be low on apples so I'll have to save that for another time.

One thing is for sure - after this event my dragons are fasting at least for the next 3-4 months! Apples are currency after all so I will be saving any and all I can until I have enough so I can put them to good use like this again.

@Sandybellee yes, I really love it. Think I have to get it, but will sleep on it and decide in the morning. I have enough gold, but I was determined NOT to spend gold on this event. I just like it SO much. Kudos to the designer!

You've done well on your feeding! All that stockpiling you did has paid off. You were my inspiration to build up my stocks. i figured get to 200,000, then go for 300,00, etc. Having Warrior Prince already at 15, I'm in no hurry to feed up a second champ. Diamond and Infinity already 15.

We have some of the same darlings: my Nouveau and Spirit Queen I took up a while ago, but Galaxy is a must for me too. She may get up in the coming days.

I haven't used boosts in any of the Leaderboards to date, as Kennedward says, anything can happen in the coming days, too much like gambling for my tastes, especially given we "down under" are asleep in the last hours and have no idea what others will do. I will get the habitat and if I get any dragons, well and good, but I'm just playing my normal game.

Im so glad I'm in a group with ios users and people who clearly spend vast amounts of moneh. No skill needed in this , just a fat wallet an Arctic Isle and enough time in the day to be able to set and use alarms.

Pretty dragons that I'll never be able to home.

Arctic isle has a maximum capacity of 6 habitats. If you want to complete the album, you can only have one of each unique dragon. The breeding time for everything in there is 4 hours and it is a common dragon almost every time. If someone has had arctic isles a while, it is doubtful they have a bunch of dragons waiting to evolve. While there is a slight advantage, its not that huge.

True re the evolution. I am breeding (trying for the Diamond hybrids), but all my existing dragons in the Arctic are epic, nothing to evolve. Certainly not feeding and evolving for points, to then sell it off!

I haven't used boosts in any of the Leaderboards to date, as Kennedward says, anything can happen in the coming days, too much like gambling for my tastes, especially given we "down under" are asleep in the last hours and have no idea what others will do. I will get the habitat and if I get any dragons, well and good, but I'm just playing my normal game.

I may make an exception for that coral piece!

Thanks! Yes, I'm glad it paid off. It was mentioned in the info during the first leaderboard already that feeding dragons will be a way to earn points in the future so I was waiting for this.

Glad I inspired you! :) It's a good approach to have manageable goals like you do - and you will be surprised how easily you can reach 1 million apples if you make some sacrifices (skip a few tales events, don't feed anyone, etc.). And after that it will be even easier to gather more because it's so exciting to cross that milestone! :)

I used the two boosts this time to make sure I reach Clownfish. Haven't even thought about the grand prize! :D Will have to see how that plays out. But yes, the end time is awful for you guys down under. Good luck with the rest of the event!

Oh that sounds fabulous. Great idea!
S8: could you make it possible for us to send gifts to each other besides gold, especially tiles ? They are sooo much better than gold. A collector's dream. Sometimes I open my storage just to gaze at my tiles. (Since I have no room for them in my island, all taken up with those pesky habitats) Makes my day! :p

I suspect you would unfriend or unneighbor the first person who sent you a tile instead of gold. 😂😂😂😂😂 Hilarious thought though! I don't want this so you take it. Kind of like a virtual garage sale or donation.

Arctic isle has a maximum capacity of 6 habitats. If you want to complete the album, you can only have one of each unique dragon. The breeding time for everything in there is 4 hours and it is a common dragon almost every time. If someone has had arctic isles a while, it is doubtful they have a bunch of dragons waiting to evolve. While there is a slight advantage, its not that huge.

Actually, most of my event points come from the Arctic Isles. (I just had my system all typed out but deleted it after realizing it would be stupid to publish it, lol! It's really just basic logic, not hard to figure out).

Android players are at an enormous disadvantage. It is ridiculously unfair. This event sucks, and I say that as someone who won the Mama dragon and is currently in 1st place, with no gold spent on either event. I've been very, very fortunate in being placed with mellow groups of people who don't boost and go nuts- and I play on iOS. I just don't like the feel of this event, I like it when we all work together to earn a prize for everyone.

Yup. Being on android it feels alot like s8 loves to spit in our faces. All I ask for is some form of fairness, but that'll never happen most likely. :(

06-05-16, 09:26 AM
I kind of like that the arctic isles are included, although I can see how it would be unfair. I don't really play on the Arctic isles so it gives me a chance to breed and evolve some of those dragons. I just managed to get an alpine dragon but then my game crashed and it has disappeared. I also prefer when everyone works together, but I guess some people like to be competitive. The element of competition does kind of get lost though when some people spend gold and others don't.

I'm on target (1961 points) to get the last milestone. To get to the Clownfish, I need 773/day and at reset time I wanted to be @ 1546. So, I did use a 7 gold boost since I had 2 nests, 2 dens and evolve ready on main island and den and evolve ready on Artic. Plus, got a lucky spin for about 225. I figured that I had to activate my 2nd den and use Artic to get enough points to meet my daily goal. I keep a base of 200,000 apples for tales, but may go below that to get my new Gold dragon to 10 ASAP for max daily gold. I make about 25k- 30k apples a day and so should get 50-60 points/ day for that. I feel for those that are lower level or on Android - don't see how they can make the final milestone.

I really don't mind this leaderboard thing. As long as they keep offering free habitats I will be happy. Plus all the extra food I have been getting from the spins. If you don't take this too seriously and don't spend gold you come out ahead. I know some people don't like how the groups are set up but we do get a lot of good stuff offered for participating in this event.

I sell unwanted decor, too. I think I've sold all the tiles I've ever got, lol. The only things I've kept are the little blue/purple flowers we got a few world events ago, the kissing dragon statue, and I think I'm gonna keep a few of the palm trees. Btw, the palms are worth 15,000 each. I'm still in a position where coins are still needed so that was nice to see.

I think they should design a recycle dragon that could use any old parts from past crafts/events. They could release him for Earth Day, maybe? Heck they could do 3 dragons...Reduse, Reuse, and Recycle. :p


Anyways, 2 peeps in my group have staked claim on 1st and 2nd place. I'm just after milestones and I'm on track for them. Just got the habitat, yay.

Third place is 5,000 (and change)

I don't understand why somebody needs 15,000 points to be in the lead when 2nd is so far behind. Why pay more money than you have too? I wish they found a way to balance the groups more. I got lucky for the past two but the first time I was in a very competitive group. I did buy a second best for this event though. I've been wanting a second one for awhile now and I figured it would be a good time to get one. I have 25 dragons in storage and that's not counting extras of ones I already have.

Yeah I have people in my group using boosts now and one has done so twice already.

Why boost now when the only time that matters is once you get closer to the finish?

I wont spend gold on this, the reward is nothing special and who cares if you are first or not.

I suspect more are boosting for the milestone prizes and not as much first or second place. It's impossible to get the milestone prizes without boosting.

jacksusa
06-05-16, 04:31 PM
I have thought of boosting once or twice to help me get to the clownfish dragon, not to intimidate others in my group. If I have a couple of things ready to finish at the same time, it would help with getting 8.5k in points, which is going to be really hard for me (probably impossible). But, I'm hesitating to do it, because it makes others angry and tempted to spend gold that they didn't want to spend. And I'm guessing that is the reason to post if someone is boosting, to intimidate the others and encourage them to spend more. Seems to make more sense than spending a ton of gold to speed hatch, etc. though.

I have some advice for you in this event
1) Prepare all your things: 2 18hrs-44hrs egg on the nests( or 1 egg), if you got crusader or quetzal( 2 easy-to-breed dragon) you even can get more points
- Evolve your longest-timed dragon
- Try to breed a long-timed dragon( easy as magic or island)
-Repeat all of those on The Acrtic Isle
- Prepare food to feed dragons( In case)
2) In the event,
- First you should look everything carefully on the description part
-Then stated use the 1.5( for cheap reasons) or 2 Boost-> Collecting
-During the event, you should repeat all the above( you can get over 1k in just one day - that is what I did)
- If your nest is empty, get all of your storaged-dragon and water in:)
After this you can get up to 8k if you get 772 points everyday

Same thing here. All my milestone prizes have been useless water tiles. Yay. If I'm not going to get event points or gold, I'd much rather get apples. At least apples are useful. Tiles should not even be called a 'prize' or 'reward.' Gah.

My milestones have all been different. Points, palm trees and if I recollect correctly, the first was food. My spins have been mostly points, with one that wasn't, but can't remember what it was. Maybe the palms came from the spin......I forget. Anyway, I'm not getting the same thing over and over (other than points, just spun 135) which is good.

I think people who are way ahead boost sometimes when they have a perfect storm of points lined up- all eggs ready to hatch at same time, and the breeding den(s) also ready. They maximize their points by boosting at the best time possible in their game because there is no way to know if others plan to boost during the event. I imagine many players make a gold budget for the event, like 'I'm only going to spend 100 gold on this event,' and then they try to spend it in the smartest way possible.

Congrats on the second nest! I bought one about a month ago and it's been awesome. Easily the best purchase I've made in the game. I've been able to finally hatch all the prize eggs that have been sitting in storage, and it comes in very handy when you breed an egg with a super long hatching time. I wish the nest were priced more reasonably so every player could have two.

Exactly. I paid 7 gold to boost yesterday when my Crusader was done breeding, both nests ready to hatch, arctic isles ready to hatch and evolve. I was only missing the evolution temple on the main island. Plus I had a bunch of food stored up so I used up most of that on dragons that I've been wanting to evolve.

I went from about 860 to 2500 and 16th to 2nd. I'm not playing to win, just want to get as many milestones and prizes as possible.

If I use any other boosts it will be when Crusdaer hatches if I have other things ready at the same time.

I'm seriously stressing this one, as an android I don't have the arctic isles to help, yet still have to do the same amount of points as people who do. >< *Sigh*...doesn't even matter what feedback we give either, or that's how it feels. I don't even try for the leaderboard stuff because I know I'll NEVER win that. All I like to do is milestones, like most of us here...and yet how the heck are android people expected to keep up? I'm coming close to not playing anymore.

Don't let it get you down or stress you out. At one point I was a focused player eager to win tournaments, events and whatever else they threw at us but I realized it was causing a bit of stress. I didn't quit playing but I really don't care if I win or lose, there will be another and another and another ☺. The differences between android and iOS have been and will continue to be an issue especially during events such as this. I probably won't get the only prize I'm interested in, the habitat, because the points are just too high and to be honest, I'm not willing to dedicate the next 8 days of my life to this game in order to get it, just not worth it . I'll play, only as I normally do and roll with the punches ☺.

I'm only going after the habitat, but I did spend gold on the previous leaderboard. When I did, I ended up with 8000ish points. I just logged on this morning and the new leader in my group has over 11000 points while the next 3 all have 3000ish! I checked out the leaders island, the only gold producing dragon they have is the new one! I can't imagine how much money they spent to get to where they are at, and still with over a week to go.

If I use any other boosts it will be when Crusdaer hatches if I have other things ready at the same time.

I made a similar decision for the cheap boost yesterday when Anubis was ready to come off the nest, a replacement egg was ready and the Arctic Isles were ready. It generated an extra 150 or so points. Got me that much closer to Tsunami which is probably going to be a stretch to earn.
