Sorry, this is incorrect. The event will go live at a later date. There have been some changes at Storm8 and this went out incorrectly. Apologies for the inconvenience.

Are you kidding me... I had 2 nests, breeding and evolution ready yesterday, but finished them when I read the leaderboard would start at a later date... now I have an empty evolution temple, 1 empty nest and 1 with 12 hours left to go and 6 hours to go on breeding. Since when do events start on Saturday :(

There are a couple of mystery boxes (at 50 and 500 points). I got 8000 coins for my 50 point milestone. Then at 1200 points you get Fireflower Garden Habitat.

For real, on a Saturday?!? I already cleared all my prep work off the nests based on the other closed post. Shaking my head.

I'm not a huge fan of the grand prize, and 7600 points in 13 days is very doable. Milestones only for me, saving the gold for something I really like.

Same here! And I had a few dragons I wanted to grow up so I was waiting until the next leaderboard, saw this one was pushed back, so I spend the 250,000+ food...literally a few hours before the leaderboard popped up. Really annoyed.

Not cool... when the announcement came out that it would start at a later date, I cleared out all my long duration dragons that were breeding, ready to hatch, and evolved. Everything (2 roosts, 3 nests, and 2 evo chambers) was set up perfectly and ready to boost. Now I am in 20th place with zero points and everything has random times. VERY annoyed! :-(

I have a question. I have just enough gold to get the caretakers statue or keep the gold and use it for boosting as I hatch the nine dragons from two events and a tourney.

Which do you folk think will assist me more in the milestones?

They clearly did this on purpose to counteract people who prep their islands ahead of time. They wanted to catch people off guard. He could have easily said "this starts tomorrow" but instead purposely left a vague "later date" message so no one could be prepared. Disgusting way to run this ship, S8.

Same. I had a super rare egg ready to hatch but finished it as well. I think that would have been the first super rare I'd have hatched during a leaderboard. Oh well.

I like that there is a habitat in the milestones.

Am I the only one who anticipated that this would happen? I left everything untouch including my farms, basically took a break from DS yesterday b/c A. I was anticipating a leaderboard event coming soon and B. was kinda pissed off at myself for not getting the last dragon in World event due to work (could have get it with a lil gold spent, but didn't), was only 1 minute shy from getting the prize.

But anyways, all this wouldn't matter b/c I'm gonna be on Vacation...so yay....doubt I'll get anywhere far in these events even if I have a good head start.

Interesting comments..

What I am bothered about is they gave the "Its coming" blast, so people tried to prepare and put themselves in a good position and then the mods here say its not happening, then it happens the next day.

I dont mind if the thing was delayed but what does S8 think will happen when they send out a blast and then fail to start it on the blast date?

Its another example of players vs storm8 failing again. I also do not recall so much animosity as I am seeing now, it is obvious that players feel the game is turning away from a fun enjoyable experience and into a money making against the players game.

I find myself not participating as much as I did in the past due to this being the case...the spin the wheel being a joke, the onslaught of new new new and eliminating the gold benefits etc etc...it isnt as fun when the changes seem to be against the player AND pitting players against each other.

Somebody's Golding it up in my group too. I just wish I could be placed in a group where I would have a chance to win. It's sad and unfair. I guess I'll just get the milestones again as usual.

Ditto to all of this. I am definitely participating in less events. There is far too much going on at once, and new dragons don't have the temptation factor anymore because they are thrown at us from all directions. It's just too hard to keep up. And too costly.

unless you are able to collect the points every 2,5h i don't advise you to buy them.
imo you better keep your golds for boosting at the end if you see you can win ;)

same for me :) since i didn't need all my nests, i let the eggs (especially the one with a virtue egg !) stay there, only clearing the one i need.
same for the evolution temple.
i was expecting them to start soon but i still was surprised when i got the pop up :)
for once i got big time eggs and evolution waiting for it. now i will see at the end of the 13th day what prize i will get : last time i ended 3rd because there were 2 people who boosted like crazy so i didn't need to boost a lot, just enough to get the milestones prizes and stay 3rd :)

I just put everything on hold. I had so much setup that it would have been a waste to do anything else. With a 2x boost, I'm up at 2480 points from the get go. Closest competition is 386, so am hoping its another easy group.

If you're tight on gold, you should remember that about halfway through event some of these points giving statues do go on sale (makes sense since you can only collect half the points if you buy halfway through the event). Maybe you should get it then, if you just need a small boost towards the end. Waiting will also give you time to assess the other players in your group. Are they serious, or just playing along? Is there someone there that will spend gold at one point to jump up the leader board quickly later on. Are you keeping up with the leading pack and just need a boost to get ahead? Who else is buying the statues that will nullify any advantage? Better to know your group before you invest your precious gold.

You only need one free nest and one free evo chamber to keep playing the game, not really sure why you would go and clear everything and spend saved up food just because the event was delayed. They adhere to a pretty tight cycle of event types so it's unlikely the next event will be anything but the scheduled LB. To their credit whatever went wrong, they fixed up pretty quick to get the LB up and running. They probably didn't really have time to re-communicate a new start time.

Yep it's pretty crazy alright, I was only going for milestones and growing food. I wish we were in a normal group but this is not the case, I will be lucky to finish in the top 10 and I refuse to spend gold. Good luck Newzealander, you are ahead of me on the table!:o

I missed the start last night and this morning I took out a dragon from the evolution temple before the pop-up with the LB came and the game restarted.

But, with the remaining food after the last tales and with Lovers in the nest (i had enough mind not to take her out yesterday) I manged to get the first two Milestones. I got about 4k food on the second and some points on the first.

On the Spin I got some point the first time and I think coins on the second.

The good news is that it seems that I'm in a normal group. at least they behave normal until now.

After the Tales and the last Word Event I should be more optimistic about my chances of getting the last milestones but I just hope for maybe the 4.6k milestone and some food prize.

Personally I thought the start date had just been miscommunicated and the event would start on Tuesday. That's why I cleared everything.

Anyway, I've moved on and am now focusing on collecting points. I like the three prize dragons but won't get them, unfortunately. I noticed the event is 13 days long instead of 10 so I may get to Samurai. Fingers crossed.

I m pretty patience when the last announcement were given. This was the first time this has occurred but I am very sympathized with you, S8!:) Additionally the event lasts 13 days( increseses 3 days) so approximately you have to collect 580 points a day to get last prize in milestone!

I'm really curious about what the points are going to look like when this leaderboard ends. I was on a super crazy leaderboard where people were competing for the gold trophy itself because it was obviously cheaper to purchase the grand prize dragon directly from the marketplace.

the higher i saw in forum was about 45000-50000 points but 98000 ! so in the end , will probably pass 100000 points !

Am I just missing something here, instead of spending huge amounts of gold to finish 1st why not just buy the dragons and let others have a crack at the top prize or is it the 1st place trophy to display is the real prize?

When you have a row of golden trophies, it's very hard to not want to keep that streak going. Plenty of people who think they are the bomb in the world, just look at some of the whacky names on this forum :p The trophies are guaranteed not to ever be purchase-able by gold or coin in future, so you have only one shot. It's about the only way in DS to set yourself apart from the rest of the pack. I don't even have a very long gold streak, but danged if I'll not try my best to win the next one. I have a ton of food and gold saved up to put up a decent fight if I ever have to. I probably won't spend oodles of real money, but I have at least 8000 points worth I can cash in at a moment's notice. I think I actually appreciate the trophies more than the dragon, since I have stopped hatching eggs to keep the game load on my device down. So even though I win both, I only really display the trophy and leave the egg in storage for later.

LB & Bingo are the only two gameplay features in DS that truly pit player vs player, and that's where the money is. I'm glad there are crazy matches going off every time there's a LB since that means that DS is paying the bills :) I just hope I never end up in one of them :p

But, who cares about the trophy?! :confused: LOL I rarely visit other islands anymore, due to crashes etc., and even when I do, I never think "wow, that guy is awesome, look at all his trophies." Very odd.

In any case, I'm happy that I've never been in a crazy points obsessed group during a leaderboard.

We all do what makes us happy, and strange as it might be, I feel pretty pleased with myself when I see my trophies. I worked hard for these and came up with some pretty unique strategies too. A bit of gold to boost here and there, but I didn't spend ridiculous amounts. I don't actually care what other people might think or even if they visit. It's also a form of goal in the game for me. I've given up trying to breed specific dragons, most eggs are in storage to keep crashing down, I sped bred a whole bunch of diamond hybrids for about 2k gold and I already have most of the GPDs (including gold horizon), so filling in my little message on my island with trophies one LB at a time is in a way a long term goal for me during the game. I've missed one trophy altogether, and have two silvers, so even if I don't win the next one, I can still keep my goal going.

Clark_Wayne
02-19-17, 08:14 PM

i don't care about the trophies even if i display them : my pleasure is to collect the dragons.
i got them, good for me, i lose the leaderboard , well this is just a game and anyway if i don't have the dragon, i still got the food
i play the bingo because i want the GPD and the food that bingo provide to me , so i can feed the dragons :)

Thanks Random. Good luck to you too. I'm going to try to stay in the top half because I want the food prize! But with the top of our board at 17,000 and 15,000, I'm not even considering trying to get in the top 4-6. Ridiculous.

Except that I am playing Bingo, too... and I need every roost every second possible (and the corresponding nsets to keep every thing rolling). Fighting hard for the 10 ticket range of winnersin the gold league. Was hoping for enough bombs (from the evo chambers) for a second Spirit Crystal because Bingo keeps having spots to raise a gemstone type to level 6.

It all depends on your game play. One of each might help you reach your goals, but I want the free gold dragon, and am chipping away at the pile of tickets needed. :-)

You need 585 points per day to get the last milestone. I'm not gonna make it, cos my group is getting more points than me, but not by enough to be getting lots of points on the wheel to make up for the lack of getting them any other way. Just enough that I can't win. Which is a little frustrating. I was hoping to be in a high scoring group so at least I could get the milestones.

As part of their new lean strategy, maybe they've cut down on unnecessary actions. If you're playing the game you will see the poster, no? That might explain why they also didn't warn about the removal of certain crafting dragons. Save designer time doing those one off posters that never get used again that don't really generate interest in the game.

Do you have any boosts that you won from LeaderBoard? You can use these boosts to get extra points in LB or World Events if you're just short. I used up a few of my 10x boosts for fruits to close a gap to finish off the Valentines day World Event.

I stand corrected. That makes total sense. Am not playing Bingo actively anymore since I got my Gold Horizon already, so wasn't thinking about that at all. I'll sitting it out at the bottom of the pile this round. Good luck!

Love love the Japanese dragon! This is by far my fav leaderboard dragon... Though I may be partial since im Japanese!
Leaderboard events are definitely not my forte, and lately I have not been doing well, always screaming away the last day or two. 😞.
Keep my fingers crossed that I win this beauty of a dragon!!!

As part of their new lean strategy, maybe they've cut down on unnecessary actions. If you're playing the game you will see the poster, no? That might explain why they also didn't warn about the removal of certain crafting dragons. Save designer time doing those one off posters that never get used again that don't really generate interest in the game.

I kinda like those posters :) At least I get to see the epic form of some beautiful dragons I cannot win. :p

Except that I am playing Bingo, too... and I need every roost every second possible (and the corresponding nsets to keep every thing rolling). Fighting hard for the 10 ticket range of winnersin the gold league.

about raising a gemstone to level 6 : why don't you simply craft ruby or emerald ? faster than spirit crystal ;) ruby need 16h to evolve and emerald only 8h if i remember right
and you sell it once it reached level 6 ;)

Interesting, at 6:40 I had 3772 points. Now I have 3728. How does that work? I haven't won that many on a spin for it to have retracted, and I haven't got a spin now as if I've missed one (as if my game reset or something). None of my actions seem not to have happened. So where are those 44 points?

Did you spin for points? This may be where the game recalculated. It may have redone your spin and given you a different prize. Just speculating on ideas here. I still think that's unfair. With all the money they're making from LB you'd think they could pay to run a tighter ship. Throw a few extra machines in to help run the game smoother.

I did, but I'm pretty sure I only got 30-something points, not the 44. The spin was still gone and I didn't see anything different in my other amounts :'( Oh well, I'm sure it's just one of those things, like the bomb where I won a piece and then at the end it told me I hadn't. My game must just have been super glitchy last night.

I do not yet have enough info to answer this. Bear in mind that we had 2 weeks of boosted breeding just before this, so it will definitely seem like there are a lot more commons around now. I only started to track my breeding a couple of weeks ago, so don't have much data. It is something I plan to track. To be sure though, you'd need a fair few people to track all their breeds for several months at least to see if there's any statistical difference.

:( My game has been repeatedly resetting/rolling back since the V-Day update. The reset doesn't affect every item, so it's not the usual synching issue. My game will freeze up for a second and reset the past 10-20 seconds worth of coin collecting. If I have done a spin or battle in those 20 or so seconds, that will roll back, too- but not breeding, evo or crops. It's very weird. If a spin is rolled back and the prize disappears, you don't get to redo the spin like you would be able to with a 'normal' synching roll back. I've tried all the typical remedies (hard reboot, reinstall app) and nothing has helped. The freeze and roll back happens so fast, if you look away from the screen for a few seconds you can easily miss it.

I have also had this problem on too many occasions, and it has played havoc on the bingo game. I had two squares to complete for three lines. I completed one squares, got the points, soo excited as one more to go as I completed the last squares it resets, last squares was started and the second last squarevwas open again!!!! And because the last squares showed it was started there was no way I could get my three lines!!! Two days of work ruined!!!

Is it me or is it harder to breed super or ultra rare dragons during these events?

Ok, between the Tales and the LB, using non-boosted breeding, I bred 5 times, 3 common, 2 super-rare. Since the LB started I have bred 11 times, 6 common & 5 rare. I have another on the den, could be either a rare or super rare. If it's super rare though, it's landworm, which doesn't appear to actually be super rare given I have more of them than I think any other red/green mix. So, on that small sample, yes, it's harder to breed the rarer ones during lb's, but that is a very small sample and statistically not important :)

Edit: no it was wild, another rare.

I swear once you breed a super rare, that dragon becomes less rare on your Isles. Off the top of my head, I breed Nymphs, Honeybees, and Landworms as often as commons (maybe the slightest hair less than common- so somewhere between common and rare). There are several other dragons that show up in my den waaay more often than a (supposedly) super rare should, even ones it took me ages to breed the first time. Just an observation.

Edit: Ugh. I just thought about my 3-month stuggle to breed a Mythic Dragon. I was absolutely inundated with supposedly super rare Honeybees, Clockworks and Fireflowers, as well as Firestorms- but couldn't breed a rare Mythic to save my life.

Yeah, i feel the same way too. It's like the difficulty to breed is related to how many dragons of that type you have. So I was breeding heaps of Nymphs and just kept collecting them since one of the Bingo tasks was to feed Nymph dragons (which was limited at the time). Had around 4 or 5 at one point. Same with Elder and Bride dragons at another point. The game seems to more easily give you what you already have.

I haven't tested the alternate theory of removing all your common dragons and seeing how it affects your breeding fails.

This LB has been very interesting to watch for me. There are six people currently vying for second place, all within a 200 points gap. There is a little 1.5x boosting here and there, but nobody is trying to break away from the pack. A number of them have top prize dragons on their islands, but everyone is stealthily hiding their trophies... and not many have gold producing dragons, so I know they are capable of spending real money... so the question is when will the action start. I'm sitting pretty with a 4500 point lead on the nearest one, but if things get crazy at the end I may have to use my points reserve.

I am happily hanging at 11th place during this one with 9,xxx points.Top 2 players have 18,xxx and 17,xxx. Then a few with 12,xxx. This should be fun to watch. I have won several trophies, but don't care for this one.So I am just enjoying the ride and replenishing my food and gold supply. And I am getting a slew of night dragons, which I can trade. Interestingly I have had a night dragon value pack for quite some time now.
Forgot to mention: I now have 48 Japanese wave tiles. I feel so lucky, ;)

Edit: 52 tiles and yet another night dragon deal. They always say they last for an hour. No idea how many of them I have had. Marketing ploy to create urgency?

I know it is said that the breeding algorithm doesn't change during the Leaderboards but I've noticed in the last 2 I played that I would get no more than maybe 2 rares and 2 super rares, 0 ultra rares and no less than 10 common dragons in each one. Currently I'm in an 11 common dragon streak in breeding with only one super rare (Social), no rares and definitely no ultra rares. Something's weird about that. Maybe a mod could help me understand this because it's unnerving to see a streak of Magics (3 in a row at one point), Waters (3 in a row at one point also), Corals and Islands littering up the nests.

Here's a different idea. Maybe the breeding algorithm draws from a shared pool. So maybe the game only ever releases a certain number of rares or super rares over any given period (maybe 5 minutes, maybe an hour) and if that limit is reached it reduces the chances of getting those. So during these intensive events, maybe all the speed breeders racking up points (with the extra roost enabled) for the LB are depleting these shared pools resulting in everyone getting fewer rares and super rares. In theory, this helps everyone playing Bingo since commons are what are usually required for goals.

We don't modify breeding rules for events. The pool can adjust subtly depending on what Dragons are available. If there's a new Dragon for that color that's breedable, then you could possibly get that Dragon in addition to what already exists or if we retire a Dragon then it's no longer in the pool, etc.

Getting a bunch of Magic or any other Dragon in a row is just luck (good or bad depending on how the player sees it).

There isn't a shared pool. All your dice rolls are the same as any player, with the exception of Boosted Breeding or Diamond Temple which improve the odds a little bit.

I enjoy speed breeding for some of the Limited dragons that come up from time to time. I'm glad they often seem to come at reasonable intervals (barring the Future Dragon and a disturbing number of the Valentine's Period dragons. I guess we all imagine that our luck gets tampered with, from time to time...or maybe it's just glitches. I'm probably not alone in feeling like there are some pretty tough dragons in the arena since the end of the Marionette was announced. :/

Normally, they cut price these LB points about halfway through, which makes sense since you only get "half" the points from the building if you buy it later. It's a good time to get it if you want just the decoration. They didn't do it this time, which is probably a sign of changing times. I remember they used to half price the boosts near the end, so maybe that won't happen either.
