I'm not a fan of the milestone dragon prizes but I do love the 1st place dragon. I don't think I'll get close to getting her, may stop at the habitat.

I just want to point something out; most people have things planned ahead and/or use a boost out of the gate just because they have so many things ready at one time. I had stored up over a million apples in anticipation of feeding some of my Ultras when the event started. I also had an Ultra egg ready on my Arctic Isles. I don't plan on using any boosts in the next 10 days or to buy the special statues so even though I'm over 2k right now, I highly doubt I'll even come close at the end. I have found that there's no guarantee of your placing until the very end of the event. My only goal in these things is to win the final milestone :)

That's usually me as well. Boost early and have everything ready, then sit back and relax. I like the final prize but after winning the last LB I have a really bad feeling about my grouping. We will see how this plays out.

Am I seeing this correctly that we do NOT get the smaller point-earning statue as one of the first prizes this time?
Can someone confirm? Or am I just not seeing it bc of all the junk (obsolete items) in my storage?

Right, I understand that. And, maybe things will shake out. I have things planned out, as well. I only have 2 nests, but each had eggs ready to hatch. Only one roost, but the breeding was complete. Arctic isles had 12 hour evolution completed, a super rare egg ready to hatch, and a breeding complete. I have plenty of apples, but don't plan to use the amount that it would take me to get anywhere near 2,000. Even with a 2x boost....that's insane. I suppose I don't plan well enough. Any way you look at it, I have no intentions of finishing in the top 50% of my leaderboard this time. I'll work towards the milestones. Meh.

I was making a comment on the grouping of individuals more than anything. Nothing against anyone who spends real money on the game or uses gold like it's sand on a beach. I was just saying that I wouldn't be giving these folks anything to compete against.

Havent see right a way that are champs in the game,but Im in the group where first place player allready have 6300 points and boostin,second 2200 boostin.I was never in this kind of group so I dont have a chance even if I want to win this prizes.

Well there's not a chance I'm gonna get the 1st prize dragon. Hopefully make it to the last milestone prize but I'm not busting my butt for it by any means. Good luck guys and gals.

01-17-17, 12:43 PM
Good, I can skip this as I have all the milestone dragons except the last one. My goal is 2600 points because I wouldn't mind another King Dragon. As usual they put me in a bad group with no chance of winning 1st or 2nd place. I would like the two champs at the end but I'm not trying and I gave up from the onset. Thanks Storm8. Good luck to those trying...

I'm confused, I assumed the groups were done automatically using whatever game logic was coded in. Are you telling me that instead someone sits down with the list of players and manually allocates them a group?! Makes doing seating charts as a teacher sound like a breeze!

Honestly, I think I had 1.3 mil at some point and then fed Ignis for the event so had around 1.1 going into this LB event. I have been hoarding apples for several weeks. The only crops I ever plant during non-event times (so whenever points don't count for crops) are Rushrooms (1 hour) and Diamondates (5 hour). IMO they have the best possible yield for the time to harvest. I constantly plant on all 7 farms.

That's not correct. Right now you can buy the Winner's Banner for 325 gold and get 60 LB points every 2.5 hours and/or you can buy a Heraldy for 145 gold and receive 20 LB points every 2.5 hours.

piggene; I don't want us to get off on the wrong foot :) I was just responding to your comment with another point of view. Also, to let others know that not everyone who starts out strong will continue at the same pace. Believe me, I know there are folks who must spend tons and tons of gold on these events, and I'm sure not one of them either :D

You're right, there is a code that works to group players together that should have relatively similar chances of earning leaderboard points. I'm not sure exactly what criteria are used to make these groups. I imagine player level, number of nests/breeding roosts/evo temples, wins in previous leaderboard events, etc.

I was actually mistaken in my first comment - my high points #1 on my board is on my daughter account.....I won the last leaderboard (1st or 2nd place), which may explain my place in that group. :)

Wow, 6300 already - I was excited to get just over 1700 with my boost. I'm not counting on doing well this time around, I won the last LB so I'm guessing that this one is going to be really competitive. I'm all about the milestones and getting them over with, then letting it play out.

No wrong foot here, of course! I was just further explaining my original comment. :) Also, I'm really glad to know that you can have more than 1 million apples. I got up to around 980k last week and was wondering if there was a limit on apples.

Oh yay, happy to help with that info :D I must warn though that it's bittersweet to have all that food and then go down to 79k, it's a bit sickening, lol. However, I now have a fully evolved Valiant & Glasswing :)

Can't even imagine. I got a knot in my stomach going from 170k down to 4 (yes, 4). I wait until LB's to feed anything up other than for Tales, so I need to get planting again. I'll need to start planting upgrapes while watching movies at night.

I'm not sure about those things, when I first got to join in with these I had people 50 levels above me and multiple dens and nests when I didn't have. Although maybe that's just to inspire new players to get those things! I would be interested to know the logic behind it. I did win the first one I could do, despite having less stuff than at least some of the other people.

Nice job! Maybe inactivity is factored in there, somehow. I've never written code for a game, but it would be interesting to see the code behind these types of things. As with every code, nothing is perfect. Maybe my placement in that LB group is Storm 8's way of telling me that I'm a cheap hoarder. I already knew that, though ;)

katali119

What I see on my accounts;
-We are grouped by level, only 1 break at level 100, so you're in a group with 1-100 or 101-200.
-The moment you first log in the leaderboard makes a difference in what kind of group you get. If I start last day with my 2nd account, I'm in a very lazy group and can feed myself without any troubles to 1st or 2nd to get the grand prizedragon, but it also means I don't get the final individual prizedragon...

And that final milestone is AWESOME! Champion and green hybrid! WOO HOO! I am definitely trying for the final milestone, too!

And congrats on saving a million apples! Lol! Am at 308K, myself. I tend to stock up during Leaderboard evens, and hope to feed Glasswing a bit closer to a 15 and finish with 500K. Well... we will see how it goes. Lol!

I think you are grouped by how much time you spend on DS and how much overall gold you spend.

I almost always finish in 4-6th place.

Mine tends to be a pretty fair grouping (fair defined as being with others who play similarly to my gold and spending habits - NOT based on whether I finish in 1st or 2nd place).

I would like to note that by gold spending, I mean overall - not just on Leaderboard events. Some people spend a little here and there, others focus more on one event, like the Leaderboard.

I like both of the main prize dragons, they're very nice! I'm gonna try my hardest to, at the least the 7500 points needed for the harmony knight (I have the other milestone dragons already which is a first for me). I don't know if I'll be able to make it into the top 2 places by the end of the event but I'll be happy if I just end up getting harmony knight.

Really?! I wasn't aware of that.... I'll keep an eye on my future spins. :rolleyes:

1st-3rd place usually only ever get only 25-45 point chests, and very occasionally a 71 pointer.
The lower ranks get the higher point chests, especially the people in 5th-10th place. I guess S8 thinks that makes it more competitive? (Or, more likely, it's so the top people think others are gaining on their lead and S8 hopes they'll spend more money to extend their lead.)

The only times I have gotten the last milestone dragon have been when I am in a group of big spenders. I've even come in 1st place a few times but didn't reach the last milestone- because I got all low chests while running in 1st or 2nd place.

There is some randomness to the points, but a clear pattern can be seen if you write down the number of points you get in every chest, plus your rank at the time, over a few LB events.

Okay, maybe they changed it from time to time...
Or the break is not at 100, but something around that, why I was thinking it must be 100 (lol, I like the round numbers)...
Or I was simply lucky to get this groups... (My level 200 accounts have never seen some lower then 100. My last account is level 40 or something like that, never someone above 100.)
Also possible in this is the level someone started a leaderboard... If you have enough coins it's very easy to level up multiple levels a day. I did it from level 100 up to level 200 in a month or so. Buying and selling the Fruitful fields (highest exp /coin) with all my coins I didn't need for planting food that day... 😉

I would be really interested in knowing why you wanted to level up so quick, if you don't mind? What benefits are there to being higher levels? (above the 80 mark, lol, I know that one!)

I have to respectfully disagree with being placed with similar players. I have 2 games, currently between levels 136 and 145. Both have 2 nests, 1 evolution, and 2 roosts. I've been (and am currently) placed with players at L200 and maxed at nests, temples, gpd's, etc.
I've never placed in the top 2 and the few times I've reached the final milestone, I didn't even qualify for a food prize. I've had more than 8,000 pts and was in 18th place. Typically, I'm at LEAST 20K shy of 1st and 2nd. Once my leader had 50K more. I really wish it WAS based on similar games. The only positive is that I know straight away not to even try to compete. Good luck to everyone who has a shot!!

30 minutes..........this leaderboard event began 30 minutes ago and someone on my board has over 2,000 points. I feel like I'm doing great and have only 150. Haha! Good match up!!

Yes the same here how is that possible? Even if you feed your dragons a absurd amount it doesn't match up. 2000x500=1000000 food who has that? Especially after the last events my food amount comes to just 60000

I cant imagine, the 2 players at the first and the second place in my leaderboard has reach 27000 points (27 thousand) after 1 day only. How they can make it? I only reach nearly 1000 points at 9th place with all my preparation.
How we should play with such the players?

Wow! That's a lot of points already - I think that is the most I've finished with after 10 days.

@maryamhjm - If you feed your dragons 500k worth of food that is 1,000 points but if they are boosting that is a quick 2,000 points in minutes. Then add in the double points boosts for being prepared in advance you can get a lot of points at the beginning of the event. I'm sitting at just over 3k right now with one boost at the beginning of the game due to being prepared.

So far, lots of boosting in my group, mainly bronze a couple of gold. But the points aren't going crazy yet - first is at about 3500 and second just over 3000 and third with a boost currently on is at 1845 - no one has really broke out yet, but there are gold spenders willing to boost. It's going to be curious how my board plays out this time.

Wow, and I thought I was going to come here and be the only one wondering how some players get thousands of points within hours of the boards starting! I know they are spending gold, but I wonder how much it takes to get over 5,000 points in 4 hours? I can't wrap my head around it.

Wow! That's a lot of points already - I think that is the most I've finished with after 10 days.

@maryamhjm - If you feed your dragons 500k worth of food that is 1,000 points but if they are boosting that is a quick 2,000 points in minutes. Then add in the double points boosts for being prepared in advance you can get a lot of points at the beginning of the event. I'm sitting at just over 3k right now with one boost at the beginning of the game due to being prepared.

Good advice just a shame most of my food went to the last world event, and bingo's.

I cant imagine, the 2 players at the first and the second place in my leaderboard has reach 27000 points (27 thousand) after 1 day only. How they can make it? I only reach nearly 1000 points at 9th place with all my preparation.
How we should play with such the players?

Perhaps they're the staff members of S8??? Hope I'm wrong because I dislike all kind of dishonesty in these games.

Read alot of disappointment here ..sorry, but I just have to throw in a positive brag ... I have been. Playing for about a year and have not won a leader board yet but done pretty well. This time the timing was perfect for me to get a jump, (though I still may not win,). I had built up food to level up GlassWing to 12 and Metal to 14 etc. Then I saw on the forum a leader board was on the way so I threw a 3? In the Evo tmpl and 20+ eggs on nests (I have 2 ) diamond in the den. When all was full and ready I treated myself to a 2? boost and ...Wham!!! Quick 1700 + points. Woo-hoo . Drained my food coffers but it felt great for the first time I might actually get to the prize. Hopefully. Lol. Now I am going to have to plant rushrooms and Diamond dates like a mad woman. Luck to all who are trying.

before i breed a limited time return dragon, and by the time i finished hatching that egg (from breeding den, not from buying from market), no bonus pt for breeding "rare/ super rare" for that one too. so, even for limited come back dragon, i think they count whether if that is breedable or not from the time of hatching that egg. so, if you are able to get that limited dragon just before it goes expires, further time required for hatching will take the extra bonus pt away from you

i think i have posted (/ whinned on) this in the thread of earlier leaderboard.

I'm gonna play devils advocate here and say that's probably not the case. I don't care for all the changes in the game lately nor the delays in fixing important issues. However, I don't think they would create a game just to dominate it and tick all the other players off. Doesn't sound like good business.

Everyone is chill except for guy in first, but whatever. I usually play these for the milestones, but I already have a number of these ones, so I'm just playing my regular game. I was going to feed Dark One up to 15, but I might wait for the next leaderboard to see if the milestones are better for me.

Can someone please explain, how can a person jump from below 3k points to over 23k points within just 4 hours? Especially with just 2 nests? This is not fair to others in ours group, unless the 1st place person spent REAL thousands of gold at this 2 boosted hours. Can storm8 staff look into this? Thanks. I will attach 3 photos to prove.

olgatt
01-21-17, 08:12 AM
If you got extra 50 quid to throw into the game pretty much everything is possible really. It gives you 1400 shiny gold bars, so two nest, two dens, free boosted breeding and double points boost and some saved apples -lets say 500k... and If you get lucky to hatch some Ultras one after another.
In my group out of nowhere a lady went from the bottom to the top. She is first with about 12k and the second is about 3 to 4k pts.
If there is people keen enough on the game they could spend more money just for fun and to get what they want. Champs are very tempting so this event is that way I guess.
Good Luck

You're right, there is a code that works to group players together that should have relatively similar chances of earning leaderboard points. I'm not sure exactly what criteria are used to make these groups. I imagine player level, number of nests/breeding roosts/evo temples, wins in previous leaderboard events, etc.

I was actually mistaken in my first comment - my high points #1 on my board is on my daughter account.....I won the last leaderboard (1st or 2nd place), which may explain my place in that group. :)

I wish they would take time zones into consideration, at least some of the time. It makes it harder for both leaderboard events (bingo as well) when you get to start late and don't get the last 4hours as well unless u can stay awake until 4am. Kooky, do u know if this will ever happen?

Well, this is the first time I haven't been in the top 3 of the leaderboard, (first time being in a spendy group) and also the first time where I might make it to the final milestone dragon! Shame I can't get both, but those extra points for not getting the pretty prize will really help getting the milestone prize. Seems an odd setup, but 1 champion is certainly better than none lol.

I'm in a strange position on this one..I'm coming in pretty clueless. I play farm story 2 so, I know what a leaderboard event is and roughly how it works. So far I'm winning with a whopping 450 points. How long has this one been going on? How do they match us up? I'm competing with islands that are in there 20s, mine is 104 but dead for a few years. It's all just strange as I'm just trying to figure out how to play again,what is new, and hoping to breed dragons that I don't already have (not working yet even with loads of new ones). Would it be safe to say that my whole groups is all just logging in? Maybe they put me in with the "not interested " group? Is there a not interested button I could click and opt out on this event?

I think group placing is based on your finishes in prior leaderboard events. Since this is your first one (?), I'm thinking they put you in a group with other players who are also doing their first LB event- which would be mostly new, low level players (and maybe some inactives or people who just dipped their toe into the game). Level seems to have little bearing on the groupings.

When the LBs first started, I noticed if I finished in first or second place I would get put in a hard group full of big spenders the next time. Or if I finshed low, I got put into an easy group the next time. That hasn't been happening the past few events. Instead, most of the people I'm grouped with play similarly to how I play (as far as gold and boost usage and total points scored at the end of the event). The groups don't feel quite as random anymore.

I think this means there have been enough LB events that S8 can compute useful, average LB scores for each player and use those averages to create the groups. Of course, this is just observation and speculation on my part. Makes sense, though. :) I bet your placement will get more appropriate as you complete a LB or three and create an average LB score for S8 to work with (or maybe mean score is the better term?) I hope that makes sense.

I finally got my Metal dragon on the nest. Was planning to raise it all the way to 15 since I heard he's good against Champs and Diamonds in arena (and I don't have a single ADIPPS dragon). But the current leaderboard I'm in, the first two players already way pass the milestone. 1st place 19,000+ points (still doing x2 boost atm), 2nd place 15000+ points, and 3rd 9000+ points (also x2 boosting).

Me just sitting at 8000 points, at 7th place. Even if I raised my Metal all the way to 15 with the x2 boost, I don't think I'll be able to get the prize dragon. Thoughts?

Btw, I was casually doing x1.5 boost once a day to see how far I go since I was having a hard time reaching the milestones in the past, but stopped since the group is giving me high points on the spin. Now I reached the final dragon on the milestone, but I don't think it's possible for me to get the prize dragon.

wow. your group is very competitive.
i have not even reached knight dragon yet. should reach today, and currently doing some calculation to see if i should use gold to speed things up and boost to get the last milestone.

i also tried to make use of the pts i would get from feeding during LB event. as i also saw i do not have chance to win lb event in the past. so, my metal is still at level 11
haha

but even without level 15 metal or diamond, i managed to finish tournament generally. just sometimes might stuck at champs
(my level 10 diamond sucks at battle, so i do not use him/ her that much)

I had a fairly easy time reaching the milestone for the very first time b/c I kept getting 100+, 200+ points spins, plus points chests. I could've saved a boost or two if I knew my group was this competitive a lil more earlier.

1st, 2nd, and 3rd still doing x2 boosts: 21,000+ points, 18,000+ points, and 10,000+ points. Me: still 8,000+ at 7th place.

I also manage to win a couple tournaments, but yes, with Champs, I'll be stuck for days and have no good fighters to go against them. Sometimes, I would run out of time to take out that one Champ whom I was stuck for days in the last 3 rounds or 2. :-/

I got 7364 points and almost have enough for Harmony Knight. My intention was to just play enough to get the King Dragon but, strangely, I'm almost to Harmony Knight.
I learned my lesson from the last Cheaterboard and not spend any gold - no dragon is worth wasting money to be undercut at the last minute. I'm not even trying for Gentle Knight and I know I won't get it because I was, once again, placed in a group where I didn't have a legitimate shot at placing first or second. I'm hoping this time I finish 10th or below. Unfortunately I'm at 7th, lol.

That is always my biggest fear in every leaderboard. Especially when people fall behind and are still boosting after they get the final milestone prize. So far no one has made a move yet, but I'm watching, very closely. I've been in 2nd most of the time with 3rd about 4k points behind, yet I still don't feel confident that it will hold.

The rankings/points are obviously not updated in real time. I was in first for a few days and then held 2nd for the rest of the time. I watched the clock count down and I was still in second. I closed & reopened and found that I had been bumped to third by a few hundred points in the last moments of the event. Had the counters been accurate I could've done some last minute feedings or something. So completely unfair :mad:

I am so happy that I FINALLY won a leaderboard event. Since I came in 14th place in the last one, my group wasn't very competitive(thank God). No one in my group had over ten thousand points. But I was determined to win this one, I watched closely in the final hour to the last second to make sure no one didn't sneak up from behind and win like what happened 2 events ago. I'm especially excited since it's a champ as the grand prize!!

I know that I'll be in a more competitive group in the next event,but it's fine, I'll just be playing for the milestones anyway!!

Congrats! I must have got an amazing group then, because I came first with only 5,845 points. I was above 2nd place by 600 points. I didn't buy any boosts and only sped up a few breeds/eggs with a small amount of gold. 20,000+ points is crazy!! I've never won an event before, guess I just happened to get lucky this time.

I finished 2nd with 17,045 - I used a few boosts, sped up a couple of things when there was less than an hour remaining but that's how I play all the time. I'm so impatient. Nothing different than usual. The leader had just over 19k points, every time I would inch closer, she would boost to get 2k-3k separation.

My son also finished 2nd on his board with about 7600 points. I had to use a gold boost this morning to put him over 7.5k for the last milestone prize. I had it all ready and timed really well for him.

Neither of our boards had any last minute issues, those last 10 minutes are pure torture!

Though I feel for the player who came in 3rd, they and 2nd place (boosting all the way) almost lead our group for the entire event.
They had 18,000 and 13,000, however in the last 3hrs (when I went to bed) someone went from below 8,745 to 24,045.

Why is the habitat gone already? That's really lame. I finally came in first place and I wanted that habitat. Makes no sense that is already gone.

It wasn't me, but I can understand why. If you're going to spend money then best do it at the end or you will just end up starting a gold throwing fight. Letting someone lead for a long time also breeds complacency so they are less likely to be watching in the final hours of the leaderboard. I've both done and experienced the last minute attacks on the first position and it's pretty exciting, but i guess not as much fun when you lose...

The leader board doesn't refresh in real time, it simply can't for so many active players. You have to lead by a thousand or more to be safe (depending on how cashed up your competition is. At the start of the game, with some prep work I can turn one 2x boost into about 2000 points, so people can prepare for a big jump at the very last minute if they time and plan everything right (ie. load up their nests and temples to finish at the right time). That's without spending any further gold to speed breed/hatch/evolve or even do much feeding.

Probably cos' it is "unbreedable".

OMG! They've changed it. In the first few leaderboards, I was winning trophies by popping my eggs in storage to fill in timing gaps between boosts and rack up the bonus points. Now that strategy won't work anymore. What a bummer. I have absolutely no reason to hatch my storage eggs anymore. Luckily I figured out new strategies to keep winning gold trophies, but it's sad to see them tightening up the game to remove a trump card you've always had.

★ the event has always been a big disadvantage for those from Oceania n Asian countries.

It's simply wee hours in the early morning to be able to stay awake and boost n watch for the scores.

It's pitched as a 7-day LB event, but nothing else mattered except the 2x booster at the eleventh hour and minutes.

But good for those from European n American side cos it's still evening/ day time respectively.

They didn't change anything, I can assure you. Even in the first LB Event, some people asked why they weren't getting bonuses when hatching eggs from storage. They were informed it was because you don't get bonuses from unbreedables. You can even go back and check the first LB thread. Complete with screenshots that clearly show that you get no points.

You could argue the opposite. If it's during the day, people have commitments and can't sit there and watch a phone for an hour or so. If it's at night, yes you do have to set alarms and disrupt sleep, but at least the rest of your city is asleep and not demanding attention from you.

Strange. I don't think I would have had the advantages that I had to succeed in nabbing my first few trophies. I remember seeing the separate pop-ups for hatch and bonus points. Those first LBs were all out points wars, before I figured out easier strategies to score the trophies. Most exciting wins, but I had to work hard to plan everything. Either way, being able to control the hatching timings across all your eggs was a big boost in advantage, which I guess I still have if I ever need to rely on well timed boosts again.
