Hmm I wonder if evolution will be a part of the tasks since IOS got a second evolution temple but those of us on Android did not. Good luck everyone...however you decide to play.

Well...now I can say for shure that we can put a Community World Events in history of DS game.it seams that TL works agaist the players and make only what thay want and not makeing players wishes.ahhh well..."that's really smart".

I don't feel joy for this event at all,its 100% unfair event for android players,especially sice IOS player have now 2 evolution temple,....what's next?
I can understand for main dragon to get a first place,spend gold and try to win it,but at least milestone should be doable without spending any gold,but beeing android it'is really really hard to make the last one.

Sooo disappointing. I really don't enjoy leaderboard events at all. I wonder if developers ever read the forums. I can't believe that they keep doing these events, knowing the strong dislike for them. And the leaderboard certainly didn't have to replace the community event. They could at least give us one of those once in awhile

People constantly express their dislikes for Leaderboards but they continue instead of World Events which are fairer to Android users (with the exception of the last WE that cheated people out of the Blossom Dragon). If the Leaderboards continue at least make it a fair playing field sheesh.

It doesn't look like they read the forums because this goes on and on. So sad because they're losing players because of the Leaderboards favoring the iOS users and the rich who pour money into it to still finish below 3rd place anyway.

Ditto, I might even achieve the milestone of being 20th this event by not participating but playing normally.(LOL)

AM feeling blessed at the moment as 2 days ago I actually bred a new dragon, 1st for me In I don't know how long!:)

I agree with most of the sentiments expressed here so far... I'm disappointed that there will be another Leaderboard event and even more disappointed that it seems like World Events have been discontinued (last one was released May 10th).

Yet, I know some people like these Leaderboard events. Good luck to those able and willing to participate in the event.

i will see what dragons we are having for the milestones : if there is an habitat, i will try for the habitat and may be for the dragons i don't have .
but no way to be stressed by leaderboard again :D

I found that during the leaderboard events I was able to breed new dragons that I really wanted. I hope the trend continues. :)

07-28-16, 01:27 PM
yep. It wouldn't shock me in the least for evolution to still be a part of the leaderboard, and or android not to get the second temple for until after the event. Between this game and several others, this company is going downhill drastically, part of the reason I don't get on the forums near as much as I used to...

I refuse to participate in another Leader board Event. When the put getting what gives me four hour collecting right at the end of the month for us seniors that means we lose three days of collecting it is not worth participating. I am extremely angry now. They've taken my favorite event. The world events, we're about community this is about competition and about money.

Only saying this so storm8 has to give more prizes out breed dino and dino you will always recive a rare or super rare or 2 commons less then 30 seconds 8) or diamond and forest for ultra rare bonus but can be many fails before you get the quetzal

Well, leaderboard usually comes with free boosted breeding so something good might come out of this. Not too hyped for the prize dragon nor the competition itself.

Guys, this is just dragon story which we play everyday to have fun.... If you don't like some events just pass them. I think you don't need to be so serious and get mad just because of them.

I participate leaderboard event just to collect what I can get without using gold. To me it's like a challenge in this game. And I like to visit the island of the top list in my leaderboard group.
What I found there sometimes could really amaze me. All habitat are the ones which could have 4 dragons in each which cost 500 gold.
But I enjoy my amazemrnt. You know sometimes the top leader is just a rich kid... Lol

I hope you all can still enjoy the game like I do

07-28-16, 09:38 PM
Looking forward to it. Every other leaderboard I seem to end up in a modest gold spending group and have done well when that happens. This time should be modest, not crazy spending group. ☺

When I see a Leaderboard event I breathe a sigh of relief. It lets me know exactly how many days I get for relaxed playing to stock up on food, and breed/evolve dragons I want. 🙋🏻

I will participate in it , play my normal game without spending any gold to see how far I can go. This way is more enjoyable.

Werekatze
07-29-16, 01:32 AM
Agreed. I stopped buying gold when the last leaderboard came out instead of the World Event. Have not bought gold since, which I used to do fairly regularly. Not even to help me squeak by the last Tales step when I couldn't get the last lvl for Adventure dragon. I am over it. I fervently hoped to see that long hoped for WE to lessen the sting of such frequent leaderboards. I can understand why they are implementing leaderboards, but that doesn't mean they have to give their customer's favorite event the axe. I am going to hold onto hope that after this one we will get the WE. Maybe WE and Tales will be taking turns after each leaderboard.

I feel disenchanted by DS these days and sometimes slack off now, whereas before I was obsessed with the game, taking notes, keeping track of my pixel friends, giving them swaggy homes, and bouncing around neighbor islands. Since the last two leaderboards, I have noticed that my ton of neighbors have been playing less. Neighbors Isaw every day hardly show up now. I am trying to find a healthy way of accepting leaderboards by just playing stress free, look at it like a break from the Tales (which I enjoy as long as they aren't too close together), enjoy the fact that there are things to work towards always, and if there is a milestone prize I want then I will try to achieve it - without buying gold, more nests, or the statue that only works for this leaderboard. Unless it's a gorgeous decoration and my 4 gold dragons have earned me enough... which I am dismal at saving... but I miss seeing the neighbors I used to see every day. =(

Anyway, just hoping they reward us with a WE afterwards and that the milestones will be fun and not grossly out of reach without a heaping pile of gold.

I'm excited for the event because it gives me the opportunity to get new dragons and a great habitat! Breeding is frustrating because I rarely get something I don't have, even though I choose breeding pairs that should yield dragons I don't have at least a third of the time. Instead, it's mostly the same fails time after time. I've bred maybe 4 new dragons in 3 months. At least Leaderboard assures that I get new dragons. I've come to the conclusion that events, battles, and mining are the way to build my dragon collection. Breeding is the least likely way.

I don't really try to win the top prize I Leaderboard unless it is feasible. No crazy spending though! If I want to spend a bunch of gold, it will be to just buy what I want.

FieldsLikeB
07-29-16, 08:43 AM
Changing my mind due to two other cokments about just playing game as normal. That way I'll get one maybe two of whatever the goals are. I just wish they'd be another We. I miss them. Don't actually like the Torch and that's not sour grapes. But I will try for any black dragon they put out.

MarijeMig

Wouldn't it be the best joke ever if we al get the same points? That would make a tie for everyone so everyone should het first price. Probably impossible to do though...

07-29-16, 09:03 AM
It isn't worth stressing over leaderboard, last one I never did anything different from normal play...although those darn tree swings from STW were kind of annoying. S8 is obviously making a lot of money from leaderboard so it is not going away. My choice is to stockpile food and try to breed something new during this event and not think about ranking, and if I hit milestones that give me a dragon I don't have then it's a win for my island. Winning this event means nothing to me. Good luck to those who need/want the top prize

07-29-16, 10:52 AM
I don't have any of the milestones so I'll see how many of those I can reach. Why don't we get habitats as milestones anymore? Those were my favorite. I would be much more motivated by habitats than dragons.

Can anyone tell me if breeding/evolving on the Arctic Isles gains points for the leaderboard as well? Or do only the main islands count?

Jennerwein1
07-29-16, 11:05 AM
Playing as usual. The only reason I care about leaderboard is that my Arctic Isles appear to be GONE! What' s up with that S8? I have spent resources there and now it is GONE! They were there earlier. Par for the course with this company, I guess.
And the "Prize Dragon" is an ugly rehash to boot. Come on now...
No more $ from me until this is rectified.

stashlova
07-29-16, 11:11 AM
I will play normally but not spend gold like in previous ones. I already have all the milestone dragons, didn't see a new habitat. The 8600 milestone dragon isn't worth the hassle imo.

Burrymillz
07-29-16, 11:13 AM
Very lame milestones I see this leaderboard making the least money thus far for storm8 I said it before and will say it again I will never spend any money on this game again iOS gets the advantages that android pays for

Niire
07-29-16, 11:31 AM
Yup, not wasting any gold on this leaderboard at all. I have all the milestone dragons but the new one, and it's not worth it to me. Also..I freaking called it, lol...they increased the amount needed to get the final milestone...so, I'll play as usual in my closet with the lock on the outside and wait like a good little red headed stepchild for my next meal. :(

Ilsadrago
07-29-16, 11:42 AM
It's game on in my group! They are boosting like crazy, lol! I don't have any of the milestones, so I get a double bonus: new dragons and watching people spend like mad to win a bunch of colorful pixels! I will only spend gold to reach milestones. I am sad there's no habitat.

After one hour, the leader is at 4K. Second and third not far behind! all three have gold boost on. Thanks guys for making this easy on me, i will be a growing food and getting caught up for the next 11 days. I don't have any of the milestones so I'll go as far as I can but that's it.

People already going mad i see... Well, that would be the reason why there are so many lb-events in such short time. Not much happening in my groups. I myself will check once and again how far of milestones I'll be and maybe speed things up a bit if I like the milestone. I'll probably get stocked up on soccergoals aswell. Like I have any use for them ��

nyrrem
07-29-16, 12:53 PM
There is no point in going for anything but the milestones. I just looked st the top 3 in my group and all look like the love to spend gold and have at least 4 gold habitats with dragons. The person in #1 has an Arctic Isle -so much for ios and android being separated.

Well, I'm tired of back to back to back events. Feels more like work than fun. Between here and FFS it just takes up too much time. I spent gold when I wanted the cute clownfish dragon but I wouldn't even have come close without spending it. I'm taking this time to rebuild my food and evolve my gold dragons and some others I haven't gotten to. I'll play my usual game and if milestones come my way, that's great, but I'm not bothering to work at this one. Good luck to anyone participating. :)

Anyone else only getting 25 points from chests on the spin? Every single chest I've spun has given 25 points.

Mods, is this intentional or is it an issue? If this is intentional it will make an already ridiculous 8600 milestone even that much harder to reach. The last leaderboard could give over 200 points at a time on a spin.

Anyone else only getting 25 points?

WHY are IOS and Android on the same Leaderboard? I thought that was the one thing that was going to be kept fair for us lowly Android players, now I look at my board and of course 1st and 2nd place are IOS players! Can we please get confirmation on this, I see I am not the only player this is happening to.

Some of us have switched devices, my iOS device has a stability problem, even though my android device is slower I have no crashing issues with it. I only use iOS to rarely and then I have to delete the app and reinstall it and it will run for a couple of days and then back to android!

Have found a bonus to being in a group with people with insane number of points, my chest from the wheel are 8x better than previous leaderboards. If things keep going the way they have been, I'll get the last milestone without a single gold bar spent. Btw, I don't think it's your place on the leaderboard that determines the amount you get from chest, rather than the amount of points behind. Example, someone in 10th place but only hundreds of points behind might not see a huge difference in chest points but, like me, someone thousands of points behind would get more points. Just speculation, though.

Yuck.... Have all milestones dragons except the last .... So happily sitting at 19 /20 ....

Even newer players are sayin they have them all. I'm used to it- playing as long as i have I've had most of the milestone dragons and I can't even place any habitats because I'm maxed out. The recent adding more has done nothing to help because they are adding one per level. At my level, even playing a lot it takes quite awhile to level up. Each LB event gets more difficult to get the final prize and I'm not enjoying them at all. Each one less and less. It's the same everytime with huge points being put up fast and furious from hour one making most of us out of the running from the get go. Not sure why folks post here all day with the results of their groups. It's all the same for the most part, except those few lucky groups where everyone plays nice...it's a messed up event. I wouldn't even log in yesterday but I apologize pern- I forgot that meant I would be neglecting my dear nbrs of the daily gold gift. Please forgive.i sent today. I was just so annoyed I didn't want to look at it.
The saddest part of this whole nonsense is the removal of our world events. My favorite event of all and the biggest reason I played. This makes me crazy and I will continue my lack of spending money for this game. I won't support it any longer. I can't seem to get my feelings across or heard so I only have my pocketbook left. Sorry for the rant/Complaining over.
Thankfully I have great friends and nbrs like you.....

Sooo disappointing. I really don't enjoy leaderboard events at all. I wonder if developers ever read the forums. I can't believe that they keep doing these events, knowing the strong dislike for them. And the leaderboard certainly didn't have to replace the community event. They could at least give us one of those once in awhile

I'm not sure if the decision makers read the posts where so many players want Community Events & not Leaderboards! As I've said more times than I can remember, the game is more fun when everyone's working together rather than the cutthroat LBs where competition is against others! Android players will never be equal to iOS with all the additional features! I've sat out the last 3 Leaderboard events & am out of this one, just carrying on with my normal game! Any milestone gifts will be nice but the cost to win the prize is more than it's worth to me. New players may never be able to enjoy Community Events since it seems they are over. Would appreciate it if we could just be told by S8/TL so we would know not to anticipate one! Thanks!

Anyone else only getting 25 points from chests on the spin? Every single chest I've spun has given 25 points.

Mods, is this intentional or is it an issue? If this is intentional it will make an already ridiculous 8600 milestone even that much harder to reach. The last leaderboard could give over 200 points at a time on a spin.

Anyone else only getting 25 points?

When I get a chest, it's always 25 points! Has been same in last 3 LBs for me! You're not alone :-) I have every dragon except last one on milestones & will never see that one!

Only saying this so storm8 has to give more prizes out breed dino and dino you will always recive a rare or super rare or 2 commons less then 30 seconds 8) or diamond and forest for ultra rare bonus but can be many fails before you get the quetzal

Thanks for the info. I will note that for the future. I am pretty low on totem pole so I don't have any of the "better" ones yet. I am so mad though, because I was tired of getting love from light and virtue, so I chose boosted breed and what did I get? LOVE! I thought boosted breed would at least give me a rare one.

Something like this happened to me on the last leaderboard. People were boosting like crazy and I consistently got around 100 points on the wheel. I was always around 10th place during that one.

Exactly. They must rake in the money on the leaderboards. The # of people who post here is low compared to the # of players so a vocal minority doesn't really matter. If the majority of players stopped buying boosts and ultra rare eggs (and whatever else they are buying to get such high numbers) then things might change, but until then I doubt it.

lLeaderboards are obviously huge money makers especially compared to the community events where everyone could get multiple dragons without spending/buying much gold.

I think buying ultra rare eggs to hatch wouldn't rake in as many points as speed breeding/hatching would.

Which, forgive me, I find incredibly pathetic. We are just over 2 days in, my goodness. I could see a little further in...actually I can't. The gold point ratio is not worth it if you ask me. The last leaderboard was my first & we all had fairly regular gameplay. I spent very little gold, 1 here, 2 there 2 clear my nest or evo chamber for the next. I won with somewhere around 4500 pts. Relaxing and good fun. There is nothing fun about a competition with what I consider unfair advantages. I think I can safely speak for a majority of players when I say "Alot of us cannot afford 2 spend upwards of 100's of real $ on a silly game. I mean, I avoid paying full price 4 my console games whenever possible & @ least I can re-sell those lol.

I think you are correct. On the last event I was way behind and would get 100+ from many of the chests. Now, I'm in first place and if I get a chest, it's 25 points. But, I get the decorations a lot too, which I hate!

I haven't boosted at all and am still in first place (for now, but will likely change) because I have Arctic isles, 3 nests and 2 evolution temples. Many below me have been boosting. When I checked earlier, #13 have used 30 gold to boost. For what???!!! That's just silly! I can see 1-5 boosting, but why the lower players? Just use that gold to buy the few apples you will get.

Just some general tips that I'm sure you all know, but as a reminder...

Make sure to mine during this event. With all the evolving you're doing, it's a lot of bombs and those bombs not only work toward the 300 for this dragon, but can yield 500 apples for feeding. I love when I get so many apples from mining!

Any dragons you hatch, even if you have it, feed it the few apples, evolve it to level 4 (takes so much less apples than levels 5-10) and then trade that level 4 duplicate dragon for gems. You will need gems another day for other events.

And, battles are worth 12 leader points. I think that's a lot more than in the past? It helps the points a lot.

Good luck everyone!

I agree. Like I said I can see near the end if it is a close race but to use so many so early is crazy to me. Lol. How sad for them if they are using all they have now only to end up low later. I have spent my time growing food so luckily I had about 13 dragons in line to evolve and 3 eggs in storage. I am currently in 6th place with a little over a 1000 pts between myself & 1st place, but like I said they are boosting away so I do not see me catching them lol. My goal is mostly the Torchlight dragon, sad right? If I get better, than that's good too. :-) Keep up the good work and good luck to you. (Thumbs up)

Those are some great tips, thank you. I only just received the option to mine and having a lot of fun with it. As I have so many dragons in line to evolve I don't have an issue with duplicates right now. I am not a big landowner right now, lol, so I do a lot of trading.
I did the battles last time which was a huge help but my best dragons are only maxed at 10 & are the usual suspects, fire, forest, air and water. I have tried several times but cannot get past round 5 the gilded knight dragon and so am really looking forward to the battle tournament ending ahahahaha.
Good luck to you and everyone else, and I must say I love the forums:-)

According to Elsa," You're matched with the platform you start the event on and your group doesn't change for the duration of the event." So there's still no real answer as to how this keeps happening. Im an Andriod player, ive never used iOS for DS, Yet I've been placed in groups with iOS players. Also, as others have stated, IOS players can now purchase (on sale ) a 2nd evolution temple which isn't available for Android players giving iOS users yet another advantage.

It's pretty obvious. They start the event on their android, then play the event on their iOS. Pretty scummy, and probably not preventable. The real solution would be to nullify the extra ways to get points on iOS so it's fair and no need to separate .

I play my main game on my iphone and yes have switched to android and bred unique dragons for android, bit sneaky of me, but my other games I solely play now on my Android as my old iPad does not handle the game. I do not agree with players switching devices to help them get an advantage but that is a choice they make but I do believe both operating systems should be on a level par with each other ie dens and Arctic Isles.

That's what I was thinking. They must be using gold 2 speed through the breeding, incubation & evolving to get those kinds of numbers, right? That would take A LOT of real $s I would think. Funny, I won't pay $10 for a 2nd nest & some prob spend $100s.
Also, I keep accidentally spending gold, like @ the mine. I had so many bombs, was just cruising along next thing I know I hit buy for 8 gold UGH! Lol I also do it when planting. Maybe it's just me.
I emailed about a couple issues I had & brought up a confirm button & they threw the line "...we will consider the idea of a confirm..." People have been asking for how long? They aren't considering, they are raking it in on those accidents.
I am in 12th place w/over 1500.:-)

Those are some great tips, thank you. I only just received the option to mine and having a lot of fun with it. As I have so many dragons in line to evolve I don't have an issue with duplicates right now. I am not a big landowner right now, lol, so I do a lot of trading.
I did the battles last time which was a huge help but my best dragons are only maxed at 10 & are the usual suspects, fire, forest, air and water. I have tried several times but cannot get past round 5 the gilded knight dragon and so am really looking forward to the battle tournament ending ahahahaha.
Good luck to you and everyone else, and I must say I love the forums:-)
The mine is giving out coins a lot at the moment and is there a pop up when u win a battle as I did not seem to get any points and did not see a popup

That is utterly CRAZY!!!! I don't understand why some players spend so much money on Leaderboard. I'm playing like I normally would and not putting any effort into Leaderboard this time around. The milestones are lame and to be honest the dragons aren't that desirable. First in my group has about 1950 point at so far and second has 1900.....they go back and forth.
I don't even understand how you can get up around 4000 this early in the event unless you are throwing gold away!!
Just sayin'!!! 😁

Well...now I can say for shure that we can put a Community World Events in history of DS game.it seams that TL works agaist the players and make only what thay want and not makeing players wishes.ahhh well..."that's really smart".

I don't feel joy for this event at all,its 100% unfair event for android players,especially sice IOS player have now 2 evolution temple,....what's next?
I can understand for main dragon to get a first place,spend gold and try to win it,but at least milestone should be doable without spending any gold,but beeing android it'is really really hard to make the last one.

Have to say I agree with you somewhat Lena and I am an iOS plAyer, however I do believe the groups were split although I may be wrong on that. What I do find a tad unfair tho is I completed Arctic last go round and so I cannot even evolve dragons there now. I could buy the second temple, butI choose not to as most dragons I care about are evolved far enough along at this point that having a second is now pretty much redundant. I now only really want the very very hard to breed dragons and the remainder are sold from the nest.

As far as this being a horrible event, yes it is a clear money maker if you choose to participate but if you decide to just go for the other prizes as I am doing this time it's actually quite relaxing and gives you the opportunity to stock up food to get ready for tales or feed very hungry faces, whatever your goals may be. So to sum up, while I have participated in the last few events, the first one cost me an insane amount of gold with our group topping out at 35k and I came in second. mama was a little easier at around ten thousand and patriotic ,I never worked for really and won by default with just using a bit of gold I had in hand. However it still took enough of my gold that I couldn't buy the last habitat I really wanted and I refuse to spend any more cash unless it's a gold dragon. So that being said unless I have a non participatory group, I will never do the leaderboard to win again. Besides, even tho I like all three dragons I have won,I have never used them in battle and that is generally my criteria for keeping dragons as I hate crowding. In fact I recently got rid of about twenty duplicate diamonds that I wasn't using and I no longer find them beneficial for the coin, but the relationship was nice while it lasted!

Good luck to anyone that chooses to participate at any level!

1st place has 3900 points, I've not seen them boosting but I don't know how you can earn that many points just through regular play,probably using Gold to speed things up, which is fine by me but it seems like a waste , 2nd place has 1200 and the rest of us are still between 100-800 points.

Agreed it does and I can't even evolve there anymore so even with just one out of three evolution temples I'm at 4000 as well and no boosting or speeding whatsoever. I posted earlier about why I never bought the second temp,e although if you haven't been playing long or have many dragons in line it's a great investment. I'm down to the ones I don't care about for the most part or newbies so they can wait. When or if I am truly in a hurry and the only reason I could think of would be to battle, there is always gold.

We're a marry bunch of android players so no arctic or 2nd evolution temples lol. I'm not a diligent player during the leaderboard events, but I can see if you're dedicated and consistently playing how you could earn that many points as of now, either way gold , no gold it doesn't matter much to me. This leaderboard event is exceptionally dull, the milestone prizes aren't appealing, no gold on the wheel and no habitat for milestone prize. So I'm just getting on to spin the wheel and hope for food ☺...so far just 2 soccer goals or whatever it is and points.

08-02-16, 01:10 PM
Well due to the unbelievable limits that some players are willing to go or spend for 1st and 2nd place, is one reason why the points needed for the final milestone dragon will CONSTANTLY be increased with each leaderboard events. This WILL eventually make it impossible for most players to reach at some point UNLESS gold is used. If Storm8 can clearly see that so many are already over 10k( like the 1st player in my group) then the leaderboard events will only be difficult for players like myself who REFUSE to spend ridiculous amount of gold just to compete for the final prize,against players simply wanting EVERY dragon. In my opinion that's what makes this event so UNFAIR for so many of us!

I purposely stopped once I received the first milestone dragon(torchlight) I already have the other 2, and not interested in the last milestone dragon. Very much similar to sorcerer(which is still in storage) so don't need another version!

20,000 is just insane. This behavior makes it impossible for "normal" players to enjoy the competition. Although I understand the more advanced players do not care for the leaderboards. Too bad the game couldn't track, within the first 48-72 hrs, this kind of game play & adjust the groups.

The Arctic Isles can easily give iOS players at least 72 points every 4 hours, which is over 400 event points a day without spending any gold/money, and with very little effort. Android players don't have the Arctic Isles, so that makes the milestones much harder to reach, never mind actually finishing in one of the top 2 spots. Android players don't stand a chance against iOS players- unless they are willing to spend money, and spend more money than the iOS players in their group. Plus, the new evolution temple isn't available for Andriod, so that just widened the gap even further.

I'd love to now how you can get at least 72 points every 4 hours.
Almost all the all the dragons up there take 4 hours to breed and evolve (some Abominable types take 8 hours, and the Blizzard types take 12 hours to evolve). If you plan right, you can create an assembly line: breed>hatch>feed up to level 3 and evolve>sell off, every four hours. The wheel is ready every four hours, too, so that works out well. You get 24 points for each step, plus any bonus points. 72 points is actually low-balling the total because it doesn't include the bonus points, and since there are only three common dragon in the Arctic you almost always get some bonus points.

I've been keeping all my Arctic dragons at level 4 so it's no big deal to sell any of them when a duplicate is hatched, even super rares (except Diamond hybrids, of course those will never be sold). So, if the baby that is ready to hatch is a Sasquatch, I sell off my existing level 4 Sasquatch and replace it with the baby. Keeping the dragons young also saves a lot of coins, because growing food up there is stupid expensive. If I breed an 8 hour dragon or a Blizzard type, I wait until bedtime to evolve it. I've got two of each habitat, so there is space to hold a duplicate or two, if necessary (I'm still missing 4 dragons- Alpine, Penguin, and 2 diamond hybrids). The Ice Age Dragon gives no evolution points since it only takes 1 minute to evolve, but you still get 48 total points for breeding and hatching it (I sell those right off the nest).

That's exactly how I've been playing except my dragons are all level 10 so I hatch the extra blizzard for evolving (12 hours)and sell off the rest. I make 5 hour crops too because they give 2400 experience points. Easy to level up and I have so many coins that I don't need them.

I'm in first place now with 5,989. 2nd place is very close. The rest are off by 500 or more. Second-5th boost constantly. I haven't boosted once yet, but I think I'm in first because of Arctic isles. I will boost when half price sale starts so I can make sure I get this dragon.

Until today, I didn't see anyone boosting. 2nd, with 3495 points, boosted earlier today. 3rd has 2742, so I'm hoping I can actually get the Torchbearer dragon without having to boost/spend gold since it's the first one I've wanted with these leaderboards.

Almost all the all the dragons up there take 4 hours to breed and evolve (some Abominable types take 8 hours, and the Blizzard types take 12 hours to evolve). If you plan right, you can create an assembly line: breed>hatch>feed up to level 3 and evolve>sell off, every four hours. The wheel is ready every four hours, too, so that works out well. You get 24 points for each step, plus any bonus points. 72 points is actually low-balling the total because it doesn't include the bonus points, and since there are only three common dragon in the Arctic you almost always get some bonus points.

I've been keeping all my Arctic dragons at level 4 so it's no big deal to sell any of them when a duplicate is hatched, even super rares (except Diamond hybrids, of course those will never be sold). So, if the baby that is ready to hatch is a Sasquatch, I sell off my existing level 4 Sasquatch and replace it with the baby. Keeping the dragons young also saves a lot of coins, because growing food up there is stupid expensive. If I breed an 8 hour dragon or a Blizzard type, I wait until bedtime to evolve it. I've got two of each habitat, so there is space to hold a duplicate or two, if necessary (I'm still missing 4 dragons- Alpine, Penguin, and 2 diamond hybrids). The Ice Age Dragon gives no evolution points since it only takes 1 minute to evolve, but you still get 48 total points for breeding and hatching it (I sell those right off the nest).

Thank you. I definitely need to get my act together as I'm not getting anywhere near those types of numbers.

Same here. Which I think is too bad, since it is the only one I don't have, and it looks cool.

ETA: I have about 4000 points and am inn 4th or 5th (My phone is updating, so I can't check :rolleyes: ).

The leader on my board has close to 9000 I think, so it isn't nutso, but people have been boosting and I doubt I will be in the top 10 at the end. More importantly, I don't think I can get enough for the final milestone.

I have similar points with you, but I'm placed at 12th because the top 3 players in my group all have over 10,000 points now, with 1 having 16,000 with boost active right now

I will no longer bother writing down the points cause top 3 are leading with more than double the points of most players in my group, only 4 is closer to them with 8000 points or so, but 5 only has 6000, so yea, none of us are even close to top 3 below that.

That's why my previous post I only mentioned about milestones, won't bother competing, and won't bother if I miss some milestones either, I'm just playing casually here

I really hope I can sit in 20th position, but breeding and evolving dragon actively everyday made me got those points and rank 15th, but honestly I don't need those point, I am happy and proud to myself even I get 0 point and place in 20th position. I need peace, I play games for fun and stress-relieve, not vice versa.

I'm just cruising along as well and don't try to get anything but the milestones, and I haven't spent much gold. This time I'm in a pretty relaxed group and is sitting on #4 with 7000, #1 is only 8100 so it's nice to see the score doesn't run wild for once

I'm comfortably and happy to sit in 3rd/4th on my leaderboard group. Without spending gold.
Though I just got a 44hrs breed, so hoping that's my first diamond dragon on its way. 😄

I'm not even going to try or bother. So far spinning the wheel has given me SIX soccer nets and FIVE temple ruins, both with no connection to the event and totally useless. I can't even delete them from my ever increasing storage. When can we have a tidy up? When can we have useful and relevant prizes on the wheel? When can use the dynamite to get extra space?
Go on S8 give the chance to blast out some space and I'll put out a soccer net.

Same here

That's what I tell a lot of players whom I know in person, don't worry about this event too much, especially when your group, like mine, has at least 3 players with over 15,000 points right now

I hope this hasn't been asked, I haven't seen this question, but might have overlooked it. Do we get bonus points for breeding or hatching? Thanks to my Diamond Temple and Boosted Breeding I have 3 Ultra Rare eggs incubating! I haven't boosted or used gold beyond my regular play, but have been fluctuating between 2nd and 3rd. If bonus points are awarded when eggs are hatched, I might boost to ensure 2nd when they're ready.

Hi there. I am on about 11 500 points but only boosted once since the boost sale. I am not actually after the lead - just playing normally. I accumulated my points by having 3 nests, 2 evolution temples and the Arctic Isles. I am really not spending much gold at all. I am also not leading my group so you can have high numbers without much gold spent - it all depends on your game level. :D

Thats the thing, people may not spend gold directly on the event but have done on their island- their choice obviously. 3 nests- that will have cost gold at some point (250 then 500 if i am correct) and 2 evolution temples -again would have cost gold (is it 500 for the second?) and not available on android and AI is also not available to android.

Still the event favours those who spend on the game whether before or during the event and those on iso.

One day left to go! I should be able to get the last milestone. I've only used one 7 gold boost for the leaderboard so I'm very happy with that!

The second evolution temple makes a big difference! (I bought it with saved gold so it didn't cost me anything and I didn't buy it for the leaderboard so I'm not counting the price as spent for the leaderboard).

I'm at 7775 and 1st in my group; 2nd is at 5740 and 3rd at 4243. So I'm not worried about my ranking. However, because I have Infinity breeding and Achilles on one of my nests currently, both set to finish after the leaderboard event is over, I realized I might have to spend gold to get the final milestone prize. Going to see where I am around this time tomorrow and make a decision about it. Kind of want the Contender Dragon...

Sitting at 8599 points, now. I'll get the last milestone within the hour. Have done shut down the Artic Isles, I'm hate having to go over there. I wish s8 would just stop using it with the leaderboard. I'm sure the iOS users are sick of their main island dragons being taking hostage over there and their Artic Isle dragons disappearing into thin air, plus the droid users don't even have it. I will end rant there before I go off topic. Anyways, mystery boxes was pretty good this time. 5,000 apples, 16,000 coins, 16,000 coins, 20,000 apples, 20,000 apples, and 95 leaderboard points. Should finish 6th, all the food had been great. The leader is at 29,000, the next two at 22,000. Not even a chance for the rest of us but like I said before the chest on the STW have been very generous. Overall, very uneventful and unenthusiastic leaderboard for me but still manageable.

This is so unfair, S8 is favoring iOS players too much.
I'm playing like I did during last fleaderboard event, but this time I can't seem to get enough points for the last milestone. I'm on 7145 right now, so basically running over 700 points behind. Biggest difference is the wheel, last time I got 200+ points on several spins. This time my max was 139, which was the only one over 100 points. Got food only once, rest were useless coins and decoration. Same for the milestones, no good prizes at all. Best were the first two, which gave me water walkways both. At least I use those to decorate my diamond garden.

I know S8 asked us androids to be patient for the second evolution temple and 'apologized for the inconvenience' but in my opinion it's a bit lame. At least they could have discarded evolving from getting points, also I can't believe artic isles are still included after so many complaints.

I'm a dragon collector, after all that's where this game is about, right? So probably I'll find myself speed breeding for Achilles (still don't have it) tomorrow to reach the final milestone, but I'm far from happy spending about 150 gold to get there. Not to mention the grand prize, although I'm in a quite relaxed group, #1 is at 9685 points at the moment.

So S8, please rethink about these upsetting events.
Normally I don't criticize S8, after all it's only a game, but I believe they're crossing a certain border right now. I'm sure they're very proud of all new features (2nd evolution temple, color selecting in the breeding den, timeless habitat) but why can't they wait bringing these out until android has been included for these features? Or give both platforms an equal chance?

Hi Nyrrem. Yes point taken. I must admit when I began playing the game - about 3 years ago, I realised the trick was to get the gold producing dragons. I therefore bought my first one with the free gold from downloading games. I then just built up my stocks of them. I now have all 12 so get 60 gold per day. i suppose I regard that as free gold as I don't actually pay real money for it. So yes, i do spend gold but you can get to where I am without spending real money - it just takes time. Re your comment on Android - I totally agree. Android players should not be forced to compete with iOS players as it is not an even playing ground. I personally really don't like the leaderboard challenges anyway. I would have liked to see an Olympic style community challenge - world unity not competition I say! ;)

Just got the final milestone dragon. No boosting, no radiant flame . I do have 3 nests, 2 roosts and AI. Bought stable and second flower mainly for overall gameplay. Sped breeding a little to take advantage of boosted breeding. Major flop !!!!! I am number 4, and that is fine by me. I am done. First is boosting, 98xx. Has ca 900 lead. Will be fun to watch :)

Well guys I let the team down I bought a boost and then it was still going to be iffy if I would reach the last milestone dragon. Low n behold I got to breed achilles dragon after so many tries so I parted with gold to speed it along and that sealed the deal for the milestones.

ahhh Bas...,In my case, you should be happy for getting at least 100+ points from the spin.I am so dissapointed about mine,can you imagine only 25 the most or sometimes 35,and that's it.that is so lame TL.Im mean the weel like had a magnet and when he stoped on one reword let's call it good one(gold chest) it wil jump on wooden chest and getting only 25 point,I mean really???I use to also getting last time 100,150 even over 200+ points,but 25???
so at the end there is nothing for me from these event,the last milestone is way far,and the only dragon I was playing for its Kung Fu(allready had the others),and I wont getin it because I have lousy 5540 points.

and yes,....I agree with you with everything you said,especialy about waiting for new features to release at the same time if thay planing doin it, for both platforms.

08-09-16, 07:27 AM
well this time I will report the renkings in my group of ANDROIDS.witch is very "suprizing".

we all where exchanging places all the time,depends when we had to make points from den,nest and temple,arena.any way no one dident boost not even once in all 10 days,just today the 1st place so she can reach the last milestone,and she stoped at 8609.she speed something at the begining(nest,temple or something),and that made her first.the 2nd is on 6140 points.I'm on 3rd right now with 5697. and 4th is with 5553.(I was with 4th up and down all the time,from hour to hour). 5th 5465...from 6 to 13 place players has 5434- 5190 so these are very close.from 15-20 place are all little under 5000 points.

so my point is,like I said before,this event is impossible for androids to reach last milestone without spending any gold.
first grand prize depends on players,no need to reach a certain number of points to win it,someone can even win it with 1000 points or less.at the end, like that is easier to win the grand prize than the last milestone if you are in that kind of group of androids,... offcorse...
