    I totally agree with both of you. The GLB is an even bigger joke. At first I thought that the players who have had to win every time we’re going to let other players have a go, but I should have known better. I hope one day they run out of money, they are not winners in my opinion.

    Account 1: 14,009 points and in 6th place, but that's ok because I don't need maps anymore. Currently between 500 and 750 globally.
    Account 2: 12,796 points (somehow I let this account down. ) In second place for now, and have a comfortable lead over 3rd place. Top one in my lb has over 35,000 points. I'll be happy if I get the dragon but also ok as long as I place 6th or above for food and maps. This poor account is just outside of the top 1000 global players, which sucks because I was really counting on getting the 100k food.
    Account 3: 14,429 points and in 3rd and hoping to hang in there for the maps!! I was in 2nd place for days and thought I'd get the dragon, but a couple other players blew past me, and more probably will in the final minutes tomorrow. Currently between 250 and 500 globally, so this account only has 420 points more than my first account but is in a different (ummm, I can't think of the word), so the points must be very close between many accounts. Too bad there aren't better prizes for being between 250 and 500.

Also the wait times in bingo don?t allow for what your saying cause I?ve tried it and not everyone is lucky enough to get the boosts required from bingo.

    I do however appreciate all comments and wish anyone good luck and congrats that can complete these events.
    I have been playing this game since 2014. I have never spent any real money but I do hoard my gold. I have bought gold dragons with hoarded gold when they went on sale. I have 8 gold dragons and 7 gold habitats and over 13,000 gold bars so it would be very easy for me to use some of it and buy boosts for the leaderboard. I have never done that and never will. I will, however spend some apples, but not that many. From the first day of the event, I try to breed the dragon but always try and craft it as quickly as possible. Usually, I don?t breed it but can craft 2 in time to raise the second one to level 10 while continuously sending the first on quests. That?s what I did this time and have over 13,000 points. I have been very lucky with spins.
    The thing that I don?t like about it, and the reason that I refuse to use the boosts or any gold for that matter is very simple. It is not a level playing field. Some, like me, can easily use gold for an advantage and some others, are somewhere in the middle, where they can spend some gold, but they have to think long and hard whether to do it or not. Then, there are those who cannot afford to spend real money on a stupid game and have not been able to accumulate enough of the fake gold, for whatever reason, to use it on the leaderboard. The one and only reason that I do play the leaderboard is that for me, I like to challenge myself to see how many points I can get without using gold. I don?t like to compete against other players here, because the entire concept is unfair.

    squigglish, I play exactly the same way you do, and like you, I never buy boosts, and rarely if ever spend gold, except a couple here and there if I need to hatch a dragon with only a couple hours left, because I need sleep, lol.

    Thanks deadpixel
    Comment on gold producing dragons - no level playing field here. When I checked the high scorers on leaderboard almost all of them had 8 - 12 gold producing habitats. It is no longer possible to acquire this many so those who started playing later are very limited in amount of gold we can produce.
    Just saying .......

    The maximum number of Treasure Terraces (GPD Habitats) we could own, before a recent update, was eight. S8 has recently increased the limit to nine because of the soon to be released new GPD. Players who have previously reached the limit of the number of Treasure Terraces can now purchase another
