    That's interesting. The five Gold Horizons have been there for the longest time, but where are the four hidden Treasure Terraces? I've never noticed them before; otherwise, I'd have taken a snapshot of it for my collection. I love collecting unusual island "designs" and have an album in my devices where I hold such.

    But I'm currently more interested in the GLB cause I'm wondering if we'll see a repeat of last season's all-out war. Not being mean or anything, just looking out for something to ease the boredom.

    Oh! And yes, if she does have twelve Treasure Terraces, then that is no longer merely an exploit, and the "H" word can be used liberally.

    They were probably where the big open space is on the upper island part

    Yes! Finally! Trees and Woods

    Let’s say (just as an example) that we accidentally found that putting a limited dragon into the stable and force-restarting the game, suddenly allows you to buy/craft another of that dragon. If you get rid of that dragon and report the exploit, that closes the loophole. But if you quietly keep the dragon, then you have exploited the loophole, even if you do not continue to do it. This goes even for simple actions like quietly buying dragons that have been accidentally priced at zero gold/coins or purchasing large amounts of gold marked at prices you know should not be possible.

    But, if you deliberately root or jailbreak your devices to make changes to the stored data or application (some likelihood), or if you snuck into their servers (quite unlikely) to manipulate your stored data, that would be hacking and is illegal.
    "purchasing" animals for 0 gold/coins?!? I can't imagine what kind of MyMonta Oops! *cough cough* I mean what kind of **monster** would do such a thing. 😀

    I found the island one of you was talking about with all the GPD habitats hidden behind the castle decorations. I had to just laugh at that. It's funny because of the sheer slickness they were trying to do like no one would figure out what's in the habitats.
    I do think S8 has started cracking down on the islands with multiple dragons they're not supposed to have because the same islands that are usually on top of the Global Leaderboards aren't there, lol, plus I've been in the 250-500 rank for a while and usually I would've fallen below 2500 by now. The fact that this is happening and I'm not even putting much effort in this (because I don't like flower dragons) is telling.

However, the event had been over a coupe of days and only a couple of people saw that post .

    Hi, alivepixel

    I was a bit wrong to just consider for players.
    Because I used to hear players? voices about game difficulties around this forum.
    I have helped players as many as I could reach.
    I have even tried to reduce sync points so that could increase the number of GB winners.

    Now, this is time for me to help Team .
    Balance is needed everywhere. DS need players.
    Elders and some cancer patients also need DS to make them feel alive.

    So keep enjoying DS the fullest.
    Team is working pretty hard on that super loophole now.

    Best wishes to all and DS

    Angel



    Always thinking about to quit DS 
    Something unknown keeps me coming back .

    Yeah, I did post a few of these screenshots with the hidden Treasure Tarraces a while back, but since that was considered an infringement on privacy and they were being taken down, I knew the score; woods and trees

    I'm not sure if the lack of activity in the GLB is because of any action. As I mentioned, it would be interesting to see if the same free-for-all happens again because if I was one of these Synchronizers, I would be wary of pouring in all the gold just to have one high-strung, disgruntled player go ballistic again killing all my efforts
