So yes, it's all about the gold.
And no, you can not choose not to join: you will be put in a leaderboard-group, and you will get points. You can only choose:
How much gold you want to spent
If you want to play, log on, breed
If you want to go on quests
If you want to spin the wheel
But you will see how much points you have, and wether or not you ignore it, you will compete against 18 community-members.
DS : Dragons de Pern (level 200) 826/882 dragons (168 still in storage)
(sorry but i no longer accept or add neighbors for DS)
FFS : Pern forest (level 200) 496/524 animals (120 still in storage)
(stopping FFS on 2017/12/31, so don?t try to add me)
FS2 : Campagne (level 73)
My group only has 18 people, and only I am above 1000 points. Was never a competition in this group. No message board posts, no island visits, just dead silence. Definitely not worth coming back.
I'm wondering how crazy the last couple minutes are going to be. I'm guessing it will be more like an auction to the highest bidder.
Got tanuki today, which is what I really wanted
Just over 2200 points, less than 2 days to go. Still on track for Tanuki, still don't know if the initial double boost was a waste of gold or not. We'll see...
#1 has 2330 points, #3 is on 1798. Looks like I'm going to get that Skylord. We'll see...
I'm actually really looking forward to watching the craziness of the last minutes unfold on my board - get the pop corn ready, it's going to be quite a show!
You can pretty easily gain a thousand points in a minute using a boost and speed breeding.

Active Dragon Story player.
In the future, I would keep the 1st event as is (with tweaks), and the secondary event be a community one where everyone just gets free dragons. Or have an opt in choice of which event to participate in. One where you get free dragons for planting food, or this one.
That way, some users can feel good about getting to a common goal and pat each other on the back. And the other users won't have to feel ashamed about buying gold, spending gold, get accused of *****ing, get accused of "playing with themselves", gloating, and/or playing normally and accidently being in the running.
Edit: This one of the reasons I quit coming to the forums for awhile, all this animosity. But the events in DS and CS make it impossible not to come back to the forums for hints or help.
