Ever considered taking a month off from the Heroic Races? And in place of it allow for there to be a Freebie Island like you guys always tend to do and/or have mass video rewards(like gems, money, and food but more than just the normal two every 7 hours) for the app users like myself? Or maybe even allow Tournaments to earn more dragons like a series of Tournaments like what you did for the Legends of Deus(which I just LOVED btw), except it each tournament is around 7 days long instead of 3. And maybe the last dragon can be the strongest one you face; well something like that. It's just an idea after all. Just to try something new and spice it up a little bit. Lemme know what ya guys think of my idea? I mean I love Heroics and all but jeez laweeze I need a break from them. Lol.

So you want them to give up a major revenue option while giving away lots of free stuff? That's not going to happen, after all they are a business to make money.
I too find the races exhausting but then i choose to participate in them, so it is what it is.

I'm with Nyn on this one. The Heroics have been one of the most successful campaigns going. Social Point would be foolish to put a lid on their cash cow. Especially to promote freebies.
While free is always welcome, we all have to remember there are people behind these games that like feeding their families. To expect everything to be given away is just not realistic.
You can always do a "self imposed break". I've done that more than once. I get to qualifying and then just go about my game as normal. Gives me a good chance to build up my resources.

I mean, I can certainly see the value in a freebie island.
Maybe have a weeklong event that adds a third currency (like they kind of already do with maze-space events, like the current comic book one). This third currency is abundant, and can be bought. At the same time as the event, make this third currency able to do everything gems can. Give consumers a taste.
Let them buy those dragons (maybe bump up prices the week before so you can knock them down during the event) they've been eyeing for awhile. (You can also get this third currency from the island, the island is basically like an always wins slot machine that recharges every hour or so).
Let them become addicted to the power of this third currency that acted exactly like gems.
Then after a week, take it all away. No more third gems, but you still have your normal gems.
Then, have a 3 day long sale on gems.
Those who became crazed by that power now see an easy and cheap way to experience it again.
Then take a 2 day break.
Then for another day, have the same discounted gems.
Then another 2 day break.
Then another discounted gem sale, but this time it's not as low as it was over the last week.
After this event, you should have a lot more people hooked on Gems, and it would probably do better financially than a Heroic Race.
