Pounawea: Hallo Bettinaaaa!! I was so looking forward to sitting with you and have a little chat about DC and our amazing Dragon Masters.
But most importantly, I also wanted to share with our community how's the person behind this name, Bettina, our great forum moderator.
All right! Let's get ready! But, before we start, let me thank you again for agreeing with on answering a few questions about yourself. After Nyn's interview, I'm sure the community is super excited to find out a bit more about you!
Without further ado, let's begin!
Pounawea: First of all, please tell us a bit about yourself: What's your in-game name?
Bettina: My in-game name is Bettina Löffler.
Pounawea: Heeeeellooooooo Bettina! and what's your nationality?
Pounawea: Do you have pets?
Bettina: In the past, I had dogs, cats, horses, fishes, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, and rats. At the moment, I enjoy an animal-free time with many vacations. I only take care of my sisters' dog, a sweet and very intelligent Jack Russel, and her 2 horses when she is on vacation.
Pounawea: What are your hobbies?
Bettina: Spending time with my family, traveling, horse riding, collecting mushrooms from the woods, reading, and Dragon City game, forum and groups!
Pounawea: How did you get to play Dragon City and how long have you been playing for?
Bettina: My son asked me to start playing because he needed neighbors for the game. I started playing in September 2012 - so almost 7 years now.
Pounawea: What's your fav thing to do in Dragon City?
Bettina: My goals and what I like changed over the years. First of all, I wanted to get all breedables, one is still left - Tin Woodman. And I wanted to get all dragons. But since SP comes up with all these new dragons I just try to collect what I can get for free.
I like to see funny animations of the dragons when they fight for example. And I like doing some of the events. It would be nice to have a break sometimes.
Pounawea: How many Dragons do you have?!
Bettina: I have 916 unique dragons but many of them are still eggs in the storage. 804 are hatched and on the islands or in the dragonarium.
Pounawea: Boom!!! That's amaaaaaaziiiiing! Congrats, Dragon Master!
All right, let's move on to the next question. Shall we? What’s the dragon that represents you the best??!! and why??
Bettina: I think Child Forever would fit for me. I often refuse to behave like an adult person.
Pounawea: And…. how did you name it??!!
Bettina: I named almost all of my dragons with the English name they are. So when I change the language to German I still have the English names there. That is very helpful with guides. Some special dragons I named after fellow players.
Pounawea: What about your Alliance? What’s its name? How did you get to this one?
Bettina: When alliances started we made one only for admins and mods of the group DCP. But since then many longtime players stopped playing. So for the race, we made a new one with the active admins and mods and some active players. It is called DCP Alliance and we are doing good.
Pounawea: How/When/Why did you become a mod for dragon city?
Bettina: That is a long story. When I started playing I searched for groups for DC. There were many and most of them were not organized well. I started helping others with tips for breedings and other stuff. After some time I was admin of many DC groups. I think my max was around 15 groups. I often reported stuff and became a special VIP email for reporting. Later that was called gold members. Because people often had problems with the support I started to ask for help for them there. That's how I could help with some major issues in the past. Last year I had a video chat with some managers and in the end Ricky asked me if I would like to help with the forum (never been there before). I said, "why not?". They laughed - I don't know why. So that's how I came here.
Pounawea: Tell us about your tasks as a Mod! What do you have to do as a mod?
Bettina: The most important thing for me is to help people to enjoy playing the game. I try to help with questions about the game, event guides and whatever is needed. And a big part is keeping the forum organized by moving threads and editing and deleting stuff that is against the forum rules.
Pounawea: Share with the community tips and hints! What would be your TOP tips for other players?
Bettina: I think the most important thing is that this is a longtime game. All you need is much patience. There is no money needed to play. You can spend money but don't feel forced to do so. Just say goodbye and see you later to dragons you can not get from an event. They will come around again.
Pounawea: And…. what is your Top Breeding Tip?
Bettina: Besides Pure + Pure for legendaries and Legend + Legend for any other random result players should know that many 2 element dragons are much easier to breed in Ancient World. For breeding events: NEVER use the sanctuary for breeding events. There are so many other possible results. And let one parent below level 10 that also reduces the number of different results.
Pounawea: What’s your life or DC motto?
Bettina: Enjoy things you do. If you don't enjoy them, stop doing them. We can not have everything immediately. But with patience and perseverance, we can go the way we want step by step.
Pounawea: Last but not least… Say something to all Dragon Master around the world!!!
Bettina: Dragon City is very addictive. Always remember that it is "only" a game. If you are about throwing your phone, tablet or laptop out of the window...just close the game, go for a walk and calm down.
