I went to send you a PM thank you note for your kind post in the DS forum today, but your inbox is full. So posting for you here instead!
Hello, Sure, I would like to hear your theory about the Arena and Colosseum.
Not sure what is happening in FFS. It is definitely my preference over DS, and they do seem to be winding it down. I am enjoying these Tuesday "Darling Doorbusters" sales. I have the Egyptian animals (currently on sale), but I'm tempted to buy them for my baby account, but then the idea of starting my baby account was to get everything *new* that comes out as well as older animals that I don't have on either of my older accounts, not old animals or ones I already have. I really wish they would let us know what is going on in that game. I bought 2 of the newest habitat for my baby account. Now I kind of wish I had waited and got the Magnetic Mesa while it's on sale or the Egyptian habitat if I do decide to get some of those animals.
How are the Tales going for you? I'm plugging along. Now our games will be out of synch because DragonTales is 10 days and FFS Leaderboard is only 7 days.

Since I have 18 GPDs, I can, should I tighten my belt, save 800 pieces of gold over ten days, and spending 700 gold in the manner described above, I would bump up my score by 14,000. And that's just the tip of the iceberg that is the "trick" the Synchronizers use. Add in the use of the Breeding, Hatching, and Evolving Boosts, and you'll find your LB points jumping up even more. However, as I've mentioned many times in the forum, a lot of gold, and in the case of those 1st-placers, money, has to be spent, not to mention effort, hence the relaxed attitude by the developers
FFS seems to have one foot in the grave and the other on a banana peel. I'm now at the stage where I'm merely playing for food and fooling around in the Arena and Colosseum where I think that I may have stumbled onto something. Let me know if you'd like to try it and I'll describe it in greater length; it's 100% legit, no loophole or dishonest actions involved
Estimates back in 2012 put the number of DS players at well over 3 million; I kid you not
For the placing on DS' GLB, I pick a prize level that I'm comfortable with and play to barely get into it by a nose so I won't use too many resources. To get into the 50-100 placing, I have to spend the gold that I accumulate from my GPDs together with several 10x Farm Boosts. The trick here is that I would activate a boost, which would give me one hour of 10x speed boost for my farms. In the first 30 minutes of the speed-up, each Diamond Date farm plot I have can be sped up with one piece of gold instead of the usual 10. So, with seven plots, this gives me 70 LB points for just seven gold spent; and if the LB Booster is on, this action doubles the points I get to 140.

I replied to a post by Angel using Chinese. Just to let you know, the post actually means:
You have been struggling (with the group). I hope you will not be discouraged by OUR pig-headedness, quarrels, and fights.
I hope you are able to find a way to persuade the high-scorers to lower their syncing points for us.
Google and Bing translators did a hash job of translating those words and made it look like my purpose was to insult the others. But I may not want to publicly translate it. More fun perhaps? LOL
Me, too. I was so glad someone said green and white in DS. You seem to know a lot, so I thought I'd ask you. 😀 Thank you!
Sorry, I haven't quite figured it out yet. Both FFS and DS are going with the Mythical Creatures theme and even the combination for the DS dragon threw me for a loop
