It's time to get out of the house and explore the world! Travel across the arid outback, the ornate east, or the colorful northwest coast! Work together to win!

Ok so I won a battle & hatched a dragon, the system said I received passports but they r not in storage anywhere. Is this normal, or should I report it to support? Aaahhh i see they r not in storage they r above the event banner. I think i got confused when 1 won a battle & screen said"you have received....view in storage" but only the Mail used to craft a dragon shows up.

I missed this thread yesterday and so was not prepared for this event... So am starting the event on a Blackfoot.. Will have to do some aggressive diligent farming and hatching to make up for lost time.
Needing 340 passports a day is quite a tall order. Won't be possible without spending some precious gold.

08-09-16, 12:57 PM

I'm really happy to see a World Event, but the last dragon could be a part of the "Forbidden Love" Dragon Tales. They look really similar. And I don't like the designs of the other dragons either. Apparently that's a good thing, though. I haven't calculated anything yet, but from what I read here it seems like the points are ridiculous again? :D Well, that means I won't need to waste any gold and time :)

I was just thinking the same...also to add to insult we have less time to try and reach the last prize. We're getting 10 days when it used to be 14 days from what I recall.

I know even if "something fun is in store" I can't see it being more then a double point weekend and even then 340 a day is still a ton of points it might not be so bad if you have 2 temples plus the artic isles but I don't think many players have that luxury...

EvieandIzzie
08-09-16, 04:43 PM
This was the same as last event where if you have a single nest it was impossible to get the last individual prize without spending gold.
It seems this is the way forward and I no longer look forward to these events unless "something fun" is really going to be fun and challenging.
I only look forward to the tales now but my interest in DS is waning anyway.

Weird, right? I mean: both the Community Event and the Leaderboard Event are basically the same in mechanic (doing in-game activities to collect things/points and get prizes) but one count the Arctic Isle and one don't, which I can't help to think that it was purposely done to make players spend their gold.

Plus, the raise of points in the Individual prizes part make it feel like the Milestones from the Leaderbroad now :(


To Flatfoot: I'm happy to see the Community Event again I hope that the "fun" things is gonna be real fun, because if not, this will be the most disappointing event ever.

WhisperingFeathers
08-09-16, 09:56 PM
So apparently, planting Impruberries and Buffbeets don't give points. Event Info says I can get points by "Harvesting food at your Farms". Can your event info be any less informative? -_-

Just to give others an idea:
Firapples = 1 point
Scalypears = 20 points

Haven't tried Pumpwings or Eliteleeks (I only have Large Farm) but I'm guessing they only give 6 and 9 points respectively. So 35 food per point?

PS: Planting Impruberries/Buffbeets over and over to reach that 35 food per point theory doesn't work

Every hour your crop harvests equals 1 map, Pumpwings will give you 5 maps and Eliteleeks will give you 8 maps.

S8 is going to be bankrupt pretty soon at this rate..
No players = No money
It's not even a challenge anymore....
Sorry, I've always took the side of the developer with this game but this kind of makes me want to hang it up!
Oh well, at least I can spend my money on something that's real....

08-10-16, 12:49 AM
Agree that it's pretty much an unrealistic goal for most of the players to get the last individual prize. Very sad about it as I was eagerly waiting for another world community event and I am sure most of us do.

Oh well....

Glad to see we have a World Event again. I'll do my best to collect but not going to spend gold (since I spent everything on a 3rd nest :)). This time I'll track my and the community's progress in a graph to see if we're going on track

knj00
08-10-16, 03:47 AM
Haha, no, stop it. You'll see, we have something fun in store.

I hope it's something that lets the players earn a lot of Dragon Passports! The only World Events that ever required this large amount of materials for the last prize were the 8th and 9th release and for both of them we had 21 days to earn materials, not just 10.

I have no problem spending cash now and then on this game because I enjoy playing it and I know in order to keep it going the company needs money. However, when the game starts requiring large amounts of money every update in order to get anything new it becomes a problem that turns people off....

We "every now and then" spenders are a drop in a bucket when it comes to revenue from these events, they simply don't care as long as the big spenders ($300+ every event) keep on doing what they do. Which is why I imagine the long missed event is back with a vengeance and impossible to obtain without some sweet sweet cash dropped.

Well 340 a day will be impossible for me I have 310 1 day into event with 3 nest...I would have less then that but I had about 20 hours on my eggs done before the event started. 340 is a lot of points

You get points based on breeding time, there is no bonus for rarity like in the Leaderboards

Edit: I just harvested my first batch of Scalypears. Currently the graph suggests that at this pace (246 pieces per day) will land me at 70% towards the final individual prize. It will probably be a bit higher because of hatching and quests (which I forgot the first day) but it won't make that much difference.

250 passports with 3 nests and it was an easy day so i could connect often. Goodbye final prize ...

Hawk1
08-10-16, 11:22 AM
Since I don't have 900,000 food planting scalypears is counter productive and I can't be on hourly for battle arena, not to mention most people don't win every battle. 3400 points in 10 days is not looking possible for me and probably most players, I'm trying to give S8 the benefit of the doubt here, but I have to wonder why they would make everyone's favorite event not fun? Could it be because S8 favorite event is their moneymaker "leaderboard" and want a lot of us to now dislike all events? Sad that I'm finding fewer reasons to continue playing DS.

I can't begin to imagine how this community event looks to newer players with one nest and small farms, well maybe I can ...it's called what a friggin' nightmare. Good job S8

340 a day is literally impossible for the non-gem spender. What a scam. Until the Blossom event, I felt that with enough logins a day, the final dragon was always POSSIBLE. It's very sad to know that I could stay on this game 24/7 for the next nine days and have NO CHANCE at getting the last individual prize.

Could someone please answer my question what happens to the Travel Map after the event? Will it remain on the isles and take up place, will it disappear or can it be sold/stored?

And also: is it enough to score 850 points to have a chance for all 3 community prizes? Or will 850 only unluck it and is it necessary to score more for those 3 prizes?

Hopefully you would like to help me! Thanks in advance!!!

sleepygs
08-10-16, 06:41 PM
I think your message just got lost among the rest. After the event those types of items just become decor and you can store them just like anything else. Once you gain access to the community prizes, you'll get what everyone else gets, but we all need to get as much as possible to help unlock those higher community prizes!

You will be able to store the Travel Map.

After you get to the 850 points you will be able to get the last items as long as the whole community scores enough points for each prize to unlock.

It IS quite the nightmare... I started playing DS thinking it'll be pretty neat and fun, even paid real money for some stuff because so cool... then I found out about the Gold traps the hard way, wasted my money, experienced bad customer service and just finished experiencing my first event: the leaderboards which was I have to admit, quite stressful eventhough I got 3rd. This new event seems even sillier though thankfully it isn't competitive... Seriously, 2 points per battle won? Not worth getting on to battle if you have a busy life. I would laugh if I weren't stressed...

Golly gosh it is going to take me 5 days just to get on the community wagon as this is now close to my end of day for the second day and I am just over the 400 mark and they have been days where I could log in often, not so for the next couple of days when life kicks back in. Hopefully as a group we can atleast succeed in gaining the community dragon.

Well 340 a day will be impossible for me I have 310 1 day into event with 3 nest...I would have less then that but I had about 20 hours on my eggs done before the event started. 340 is a lot of points

Same here, I only got 280 today, pretty sure I won't get the last individual prize, maybe not even the 3rd prize either

Has anyone found out what surprise was Flatfoot talking about in regards to this event?

D_Raho
08-11-16, 06:39 AM
Let us see if one could do this without spending any gold, past or present. Meaning only one nest. And this is in a magic scenario where you can Battle, Breed, Hatch, Collect, Plant, Harvest, and send Outpost Mission simultaneously without any loading. Because seconds turn into minutes which turn into hours over 10 days.

1 nest working 24 hours a day = 24 Passports
7 farms working 24 hours a day = 168 Passports
Collecting from the outpost every 3 hours, 8 times a day = 64 Passports
Collecting from the Travel Map 6 times a day every 4 hours = 30 Passports
Battling every single hour a day and winning 100% of the time instantaneously = 48 Passports

That's a total of 334 Passports a day.

So if you never slept and constantly play this game whilst also having a flawless battle record you would still end up short of the final goal by 60 points in the end.

Please point out any errors I've made. I've been up for a few days and really should be sleeping at this point. But this doesn't just seem unreasonable. It feels close to impossible. If you fall asleep, as I'm about to, that gap just widens. If you wanted to sleep for 8 hours you would need to buy all 3 extra Nests. Adding 72 Passports a day from the Nests but losing 24 from the Outpost, 16 from battling, and 10 from the Travel Map. You would still need 16 perfect wins in a row in the Arena. 334 + 72 - 24 - 16 - 10 (tel:+ 72 - 24 - 16 - 10) = 356 Passports.

So spending Gold at some point and never losing any battles would just get you to the final individual prize. I'm not a happy camper. I'm going to bed.

this is discouraging for many who don't have 4 nests, 2 dens, and 2 evol temples. If they don't play, then it makes it harder for the community to win. Whether the fun comes tomorrow or next Tuesday it may be moot by then.

Isn't there a spin the wheel starting Friday, I'm sure I saw it somewhere? However, if I have my usual terrible luck then that's going to be no fun at all (20th Olympus on the nest despite getting the diamond temple )

Edit(KP) Yes there will be a new spin the wheel.

Without those points, there is no way to come close to getting enough to earn all dragons. Even a spin to win starting Friday won't likely be enough.

Thanks D_Raho this scenario describes my set up.
Last community event was the same where you need at least one extra nest and nearly an hourly play to get to the final goal. I stopped trying after I got to the community target and just played normally.
I am no longer a fan of the community event, I now prefer the Leaderboard event where I can spin the wheel and also get a food bonus at the end, I do not have a hope with getting top 2 but last one I surprisingly placed third. New dragons hardly interest me, I have too many in storage waiting to be hatched.
I see that there is a new spin the wheel starting this weekend, it better be more than a spin a day, if I have a hope of getting the last prize, otherwise I will give up my efforts and just accept what ever prize I get and the 3 community prizes we will inevitably receive.

Oh, that's what I expected. World Events used to be so much fun and pretty relaxing. It was this contrast between a casual World Event and a Dragon Tales Event where you had to plan ahead that I actually liked. Now even the World Event is stressful :(

Double the passports (except during tournaments).... does this mean---

-double the passports on all passport-giving activities through 8/15 EXCEPT arena fights (in which case you just get what you get, not doubled) ???

If so, will the arena fights give double passports after you win the tourney and get Aphrodite (because there will no longer be a tourney on your isle)?

If this is the case, I gather this 3-days of 2x-passports will get about an extra 750-900 passports for a player who logs in frequently. I'm not sure how many passports I'm getting a day, but I would guess around 225. Even with an extra 900 passports added to my total (and 900 is highly unlikely), I still don't think it will be enough to get the final prize w/out spending gems...

08-12-16, 02:01 PM
It's 7 days double passports except for arenafights during tournements (I think only while it's going on your isle, but not sure). Passports are only given out when harvested food that lasts at leat an hour. Impruberries, bufbeets and upgrapes will not give you passports. I think now there is a challenge. Still not easy, but with strategising a bit it seems possible now. Thanks flatfoot. I hoped my trust wasn't going to bite me in the .... and I think it didn't. I must say I was having a hard time believing but I did give s8 the benefit of the doubt.
During the latest tales I truely didn't believe I was going to finish, because I thought I had to raise adventure to level 14. In the end it was "only" to ten so I made it. Next time might be different, I went over the border :-D (above 90)

I am assuming 12:30 central time because that's when double passports started for me. I think this is TL's day-change. Maybe it's later at the end of the day, that would be nice, but I doubt it.

I'm really surprised at how much double passports has helped me. I'll be around 2300 by the end of the night & I'm set to collect 306 passports of food/quest/decor-map before noon (central time) tomorrow.

Even with all the double passports I only have 1718...just got my Thai Dragon. If I'm figuring correctly I still need 374 passports a day to achieve the last dragon. They're suddenly making everything so out of reach. :/

I can get the last gift without using gold

08-15-16, 02:49 AM
I guess that i can't make it - currently 2106 passports. I got now only 8 passports for questing - but still 10 passports for collecting from the Travel Map (after collecting the questing passports). But i fear without spending of gold the last individual prize will not be to reach. That makes it very unattractive for normal players that can't spend much money for gold. I don't want to spend gold for the last dragon and take only what i can get from this events. In the first time i played i spent lots of gold but now i don't still want to give so much money away only for this game. It`s disappointing that normal players can't reach the last prizes even if they work hard and breed and plant, battle, evolve and harvest very busy around all the days.

It's nice to have something Southeast Asian for once, but I'm just really losing my enthusiasm for all S8 games lately, because failing to complete almost every event despite putting in effort is just no fun. I've better luck going out to catch pocket monsters, which uses less mobile data too.

I agree and tbh 2x the points really wasn't all that "Fun" not even giving 2x points on battles and we thought they were being cheap when they took gold off the leaderboard wheel

Lasts until the 15th... Need to remember that means 'until the very first second of the 15th' :rolleyes:

Anyway, on 2520 points now, so basically I'm well on track for Northwest. If needed I can get another 97 hours of farming done until the end, which would bring my total to 3199 points. But I hate growing scalypears, just a waste of time and food. I hope I can skip at least 1 of 4 rounds scalypears, maybe even two. Lets see how things go later this week.

Really nice to see some Aussie stuff, but have to add my voice to the unrealistic final goal of 3400... I don't really bother with leaderboard events now other than to try to hit individual milestones due to some crazy high points from some people (26,000?!??) so was really happy when I saw this pop up...

A challenge is one thing but people have work & lives and even with double points for two days, 3400 is ridiculous!

Hopefully the powers that be are listening to the growing number of unhappy customers of such an otherwise AWESOME game, before it's too late...

I think "Lasts through the 14th" would have been FAR LESS DECEPTIVE on TL's part. I'm at 2512, haven't done any numbers yet, but I think with regular logins (i.e. 5+ a day), I should be able to get Northwest.

I too am around 1800 so 1500 in 3 days? No way so I am back to not fighting in the arena (I have Courier Dragon), Quests will be for food/maps and I will no longer buy Water Dragons for my nest.
The only thing keeping my interest in DS is the Tales, I build up food for that, but I am reducing my playing and think I will eventually stop like I have already done with 4 S8 games.

I am not sure how long I am going to keep playing. Perhaps if android get some updates soon it may be better, but right now, it is a game I am loosing the will with. If it weren't for the pretty dragons, I would be off.

Not a problem just wanted to clarify its easy to misunderstand. I still have to out in insane hours to do this and I don't feel the average working person can manage it which again brings me to the point that I believe storm 8 develops this game primarily for players that are able to play full time. Others just cants always meet all the goals and have to make choices. I stayed up all night two nights in a row during the double passports. I doubt that most people can or would even do that, but my back pain kind of makes it happen as often that is when I am awake. However by the same token I often crash and miss things such as spin to win like yesterday, I missed by eight hours due to being dead.

it's funny what you say about the close mines as I noticed recently that I seem to get more food now from the left mine than the right mine. I do go thru streaks where I get a good batch from the right side and I wouldn't want to not have it but I actually think the left may be better for the most part. It seems that if I were to close it, that it really would not make much difference and would be less aggravating when the dynamite piles up. I have no clue why I bought dozer as I was finished at the time. I guess I thought he would be useful for arena. I sure wouldn't get a second, way too many coins I don't need and I maxed out parts months ago.

Yes, I love the dragons too and that's keeping me here right now. But I am honestly burning out on this game with the back to back to back events with goals out of reach. I have no time to build up food. I have gold dragons I haven't leveled up yet and now I managed to breed Achilles and I got a soccer dragon and can't level any of them up either. I'm only at 2177 right now and really love the last dragon but I've already spent money I shouldn't have just trying to keep up with things. I had just gotten to a point in the game where I was starting to be able to complete events and get dragons I couldn't quite get before and I was really excited about that. Then BAM! They suddenly made all these changes and everything is unreachable again. :( I'm also on Android and would like to catch up on things we miss out on. Or maybe get some of our own perks just for Android. I'm going to really be bummed if I can't manage enough pieces for the dragon in the mine.

I think the two of you just proved its possible to get this done and I know I will definitely finish. I am not sure why the the others have so much trouble but I don't do anything different than normal really. Just plant dates when I'm sleeping or napping which is a fair bit, rush rooms throughout the day and grapes if I'm paying attention or watching tv. Grapes seems to work out really well with between 1 and two every ten minutes in most harvests. There are a few where you get stiffed but heck it's only ten minutes! You still seem to get more in the long run than with anything else if you have the coin which most of us at higher levels do. I've been planting them since about level forty off and on as I never did like the cheap crops and will do almost anything to avoid them. I sometimes even pay gold to skip planting them in tales if it's going to save me a lot of time and I have a big crop goal. Anyhow I digress. Well done to you both again!

Not everyone can fit all that planting and harvesting in between all their other activities. If you have a job, most bosses wouldn't appreciate spending working time in DS, even for a few minutes. And of course there is family time and other social activities when it's not quite so social to start playing. Grapes don't give passports, so there's no point doing those to gain passports. I was really happy with those double passports but I had a really crappy tournement. Besides that I have been playing almost on the hour. Except for one day where I lost 5 hours. I even set my timer a couple of nights to send my air out for another quest. Still... I'm not going to finish. I have about 800 points to go and I really don't see that happening unless another surprise comes up. Congrats to all who made it though!

P

The point of the matter is I have 3 nests that I keep active, always have food growing and have battled continuously! I don't play ar work but I plant 3 5 hours crop, a 1 hour crop and an 8 hour crop. I must admit I have fallen behind the way on a couple of planting sessions but the only way I may make it is because of bonus double points plus I had planted 20 hour crops to harvest just after this event started so I was just ahead of the game from day 1.

I said earlier it's difficult for people that work but you are wrong about grapes they DO give passports. they just don't drop every single time. But the ratio is at least equal to rush rooms. If they didn't give them I would not have jumped from 2659 last night all the way to over 2900 because that's all I planted for several hours. I don't mean to be rude to anyone but I have worked just as hard as anyone else. I am lucky I guess in that I don't have to work but at the same time I wish I could. Like Random, I have three nests that are always growing something and I always have food planted. The gardens are never ever empty so to speak. I often stay up all night long during events simp,y because u get wound up or want to finish., tonight being a case in point it's well past 430 am. I don't think anyone deserves flames for finishing or by the same token having trouble. Nor does storm 8 deserve it for being a money making company as without the people that pay once in a while (and I am one of them, even tho it's no longer frequent) we wouldn't have this game mainly because they would not be able to pay people like flatfoot and Elsa. There are lots who I believe give up there time for free. And yet many people complain constantly about anything and everything. Off my soapbox now, p,ease forgive me if I offended anyone as that was not my intent but merely to clarify. Like Random, I have also battled compntinuously so even tho our methods are slightly different our end result is essentially the same. He finishes a bit faster using the twenty hour crop due to the bonus your I think I get more food which is good ask I want to get valiant to fifteen before tales if possible.

I understand where you're coming from. I don't judge people without a job. In fact, I'm an artist working at home, so that's not an issue for me. I don't want to spen gold on a third nest. I just don't have that many dragons in storage. I save eggs for when I need then, but l just don't have that many. I didn't meen to say you didn't work for it. You must have. As for complaints to s8 about making money. It bugs me too. It's a company and they need to make money in order to make this happen in the first place.
I think S8 would make more money by making the goal a bit more realistic to finish without spending any gold. In that case I think players would be more likely to spend some. Right now the goal is so far out of reach to me that I probably would have to dpend about 100-150 gold and that isn't just worth it to me. I'm not complaining, just spwaning my thoughts about the event. I'll keep on going till the end and I would hope everyone would so the community dragon would be obtainable. I'm sorry to see that so many give up. I've learned to never give up. It ain't over till it's over.

You are very welcome and I'm glad you are not giving up, you might make it yet. I was astonished how many passports I got just from grapes and the quest last night. In all honesty I think that third nest helps a fair bit at times but I don't really need much any more either. Another thing I do that I believe helps is I plant light dragons instead if water which gives nine hour turnarounds instead of twelve. Actually makes a difference!

I know that I spent far more money on this game when every event was doable without spending gold. when I felt excited for every update to see what was next I felt much more inclined to buy some extras because I was having fun. Ever since leaderboards came out the unfun has been seeping into every aspect of this game and I can't remember the last time I bought gold.

I just collected my scaly fruit and now have 3269 so I should have the last dragon tomorrow.

Can anyone tell what speeding gives the most points? I almost always win in the arena (Rainbow Sentinel FTW), so that's an option for me, but I don't know if that gives the most bang for the buck.

It must be quest. 8 passports for 3 gold

You are very welcome and I'm glad you are not giving up, you might make it yet. I was astonished how many passports I got just from grapes and the quest last night. In all honesty I think that third nest helps a fair bit at times but I don't really need much any more either. Another thing I do that I believe helps is I plant light dragons instead if water which gives nine hour turnarounds instead of twelve. Actually makes a difference!
I just realise I could buy an egg instead of breeding and speeding with gol to fill in the gaps. I' fairly new to the forum and I think now I spent some precious gold for the wrong readons. O well, my bad... I can't afford light for every gap, but air and water would do just fine :-). Thanks again. This is very helpfull.

I agree! I spent 15-21 gold in my 2 baby accounts to get them to 2400 points before the double weekend wore off - 3 gold giving 16 points was the best return!! Even without double points/passports, the quest is the best return.

Nest - 1 point per 1 gold
Battle - 2 points if you win per 4 gold to speed up between battles
Quest - 8 ponts for 3 gold. Or on average 2.7 points per 1 gold
Crops- 1 point per 2 gold but even at the poor 0.5 point per gold rate, it does give you food too...

I know that I spent far more money on this game when every event was doable without spending gold. when I felt excited for every update to see what was next I felt much more inclined to buy some extras because I was having fun. Ever since leaderboards came out the unfun has been seeping into every aspect of this game and I can't remember the last time I bought gold.

I just collected my scaly fruit and now have 3269 so I should have the last dragon tomorrow.
Right? That is exactly what I ment. Bring in the fun element by making challenging but realistic goals. Almost anyone will be prepared to spend miney on the game and I bet they could make more money that way. Just business for dummies :-D. Congrats in advance to making it to the finish!

I just tried upgrapes. 6 x 7 upgrapes gave me 4 passports. I would have been sattisfied with 7, but now I'm going back to rushrooms at daytime and leeks at nighttime.

I wish I understood Dutch good thing you translated and I'm even half Dutch but I don't speak the language lol. Glad that helped. You will be able to afford it soon. I have even used olympus a few times!

Four is pretty good lol I usually on get one or two Es h planting very rare to get more. But it still averages out to a very high yield. I use it primarily when I'm after a lot of food like right now.

Lol! I just want passports AND lots of food. I got my upgrapes and that helped quite a lot, but not so good for passports. Savest is rushrooms for me.
My translation even was a little of it should have been the sun rises for free, but I guess anyone wwouunderstand "goes up" aswell :-D

08-17-16, 11:50 AM
Ok?, I just made a new calculation... If I play on the hour, leave no minute unturned, then I can get the points. I have 2817 points right now, wich leaves me 583 passports. We've got 46 hours to go, so I need 12.67 passports per hour. If I win every battle, I'll need 10.67. 7 of wich come frome harvesting food. So there's 3.67 left. 2 of them will be from hatching eggs. That's easy! So I have 1.67 left and I get those from questing and the table. Looking at these numbers it's not THAT tight.. If everything goes as I hope, I will make it :-).

Was the "Fun" ever explained?

Because I am not going to get the final individual dragon, and the additional free spins for iOS players is tough to take. Could use some fun!

3164. I should get the last dragon, which was a nice surprise to figure out just now.

I got the northwest dragon couples of hours ago, I spent minimal amount of gold during the double bonus weekend, such as speed up hatching before bedtime, my three nests always occupied with either air or water dragon eggs. Now working on the community final prize.

All in all this event was pretty discouraging for me as a new-ish player. I did reach level 30 during this event, though, so at least I had two days of my battles giving passports. With only one nest and no room to expand my farms, no chance for me.

There are lots of events don't be too concerned. It's hard for everyone at first. Once you get ,pmore coin, space etc you will find things much easier. Ut would be really helpful for you to invest in a second nest as soon as you can and if you can afford it a third is very helpful. Also, they now have a second evolution temple which will help new players a great deal although I never bought it as I don't have much that can't wait.just bide your time, prioritize and you will do fine. Feel free to add me if you wish and I will help you as much as I can. You have battles coming up which are Duffy ut but lots if fun. You have already found forums which is a great resource. Try to stay positive and font fall into the trap many do of using this place as a whine place but as the resource it was intended to be and you will have a great time!

I agree! This forum is very usefull. And... things do get easier when you wait. I couldn't finish my first events, but now I'm level 96, don't have to watch my coins all the time and ahead with space. Just a tiny bit though. I like to buy more then needed habitats so I always have enough space for new dragons. Always keep 1 or to spots open for surprises though :-)

Similar situation with me, I'm really surprised at the huge difference of points just to get last prize, the 4th prize only needs 1700 but the last needs double that, at 3400

08-18-16, 09:09 AM
I'm 3067 now. I doubt I can make it 'till the end... Still need 333 passports and one more day left for me to get the last individual prize... :(

08-18-16, 09:14 AM
They are getting really greedy. 3400 is impossible without spending a bunch of gold which I refuse to do for a single dragon. If they made it a tiny bit out of reach some people might spend a bit to try to reach the finish line. Personally when I see this kind of tactic I just shut it down, I'll just take what I get going about my normal course of play. I'll make sure I don't spend a single bar of gold until this event is over.

Right now I am doing a bit of speed breeding as I *really* want Blackhole. If I am going to spend gems, I want to get something for it like more chances at a limited dragon.

This is pretty ridiculous. I didn't manage to get a single dragon and I didn't even join the Community Prizes. I don't play that active anymore and it was my choice not to participate in this event, but in the past I still managed to get at least one dragon without any problems. I'm not mad that I didn't get one because, as I said, it's been my own choice, but it still shows how much this event changed. It's pretty sad because I used to enjoy the World Events a lot.

This will be the second world event I couldn't make it 'till the last individual prize after the previous one, Blossom dragon (May World Event)... and I am pretty sure I won't get all the last individual prize dragons anymore in the next/future world event... It's impossible for me to complete even I tried my best though... :(

This will actually be the first event for me that I wouldn't get the last individual dragon without spending gold. Less than 24 hours to go and I'm still a bit more than 700 passports shy of the NW dragon. And the only reason I'm even that close is because I got an early jump on the double passport thing last weekend with my farms. This is ridiculous. If they're always going to make the goals out of reach without spending gold, then just put the dragons up for sale because that's essentially what you're making everyone do - buy these limited dragons.

I didn't get the last dragon in the May event (Blossom) despite having two nests and playing all the time. That was the first time ever for me and I have participated in every world event except the first two. I got the NW dragon this time only because of the double points weekend.

There has definitely been a shift recently. Between the leaderboard events I will never ever win (I easily earn all the milestone dragons - most of which I already have - because I am not willing to spend the gold to get 60,000+ points) and the world events that require gold spending, I am losing interest. I have to stop caring about completing events and it is causing me to withdraw from the game overall.
