I have a lot of problems with the ongoing patterns in Heroic Races including in the newer, updated version.
I am tired of pure heroics, there have been so many in the last several months. Please create more primal (especially primal as first element) dragons to combat this. SP has basically required all primal dragons to have some design elements hearkening back to dinosaurs, which I think has severely limited SP's ability to provide quality primal dragons. Legendary and pure dragons don't have such limitations on design so please give up such a limitation for primal dragons.
The drop rates for breed and hatch are so low compared to progressive race which makes all breed/hatch missions so long, annoying, and arduous. This compounds with the fact that most of the breed/hatch missions require many more items than many progressive levels. It makes those missions feel grueling and demoralizing. It isn't enjoyable. Please increase the drop rates for breed and hatch to match progressive event.
The drop rates for food are also really bad. I spend 10 min to get 20 food items using all 14 of my farms, it's just too long. Please adjust the drop rates for food to not require so long.
These experiences have made heroic races a drag rather than a monthly culminating event. Please consider changing them.
