    This new format is wonderful! Keys were a massive obstacle that didn’t need to be there, and the rewards were massively generous. A single, no-restrictions path with so many battles and a whole week to finish means we can fight on our time and finish the event without having to constantly check back. And I found out dragons rank up during these fights as well! This is a great way to train lots of dragons at once. The early food rewards are too generous, but other than that, this is a great rescue. Never liked these events, but this one is nice!

    So, I came back from hiatus a little over a week ago to a massive streak of luck.
    On the first day back, I bred the Wind dragon on only my second attempt. (I know it’s air now but I’ve been calling it wind for at least 5 years so nyeh)
    0_1580269858897_DBF598B2-9A1B-423E-AEFF-6B29F524B688.png
    I’ve gotten duplicates of every breedable legend before and have been breeding for years but got not one wind before this, despite her being the only legend I actually wanted. Cool, what a nice homecoming gift!
    But that was not it. The next day, I bred Burglar on my FIRST try.

    Sorry for terrible cropping. Small forum file size upload limits.
    After posting my lucky breed in the temp breeding thread (I named my Burglar Hamburger and he is making legend arenas that much easier for me) I decided to joke around and said “take my luck, I don’t need it.” DragonLove had caught my luck, successfully breeding a Vicky. For a week, I seemed to have lost that luck.
    But yesterday, I bred a Neumon on my first try as well.
    0_1580270722688_27F5A7DD-2709-48A0-BC91-5CB317F83969.jpeg
    And today, I watched a few videos to try my luck with the Toy dragon. Got it first attempt as well, and a confirmed 3% chance (roughly 1 in 33)
    0_1580270780319_76903612-C5C9-4455-A833-794F223D1F09.png
    Not as lucky, but I also managed to breed 4 dreamcatchers in 3 days for a little competitive experiment.
    So, if yall can’t get lucky with breeding, videos or just anything, feel free to make a post here (and tell me if my fortune has infected you.) May the RNG be ever in your favor.

    I managed to get Burglar on only my second try! I was surprised that the combo was two commons and even more surprised it worked. Air dragon yesterday, now a burglar. Take my luck, I obviously don’t need it.

    A few months ago, somewhere between september and october, I kinda grew sick of the game. Depression and real life began to drain my will to play as well and I took a hiatus. I’ve been bombarded with mobile game ads during my time away from the game which made me think about the low quality of mobile games, and made me return to DC just to see if it was as bad as I remembered.
    First off, I instinctively tapped on my breeding structures, and having forgotten what I’d been breeding for, just hit rebreed. 50 hours! A legendary! Probably just another legacy or droconos or something else I already had, but having apathy towards my gem-spending and much curiosity, I decided to speed up anyways.
    0_1579579741448_B43250C5-F7EA-42E9-8E73-88A33DC2C9D2.png
    It was a wind dragon.
    When I first started playing 7 years ago, that dragon was my only goal in the game. Breeding nonstop for 2 and a half years straight gave me duplicates of every other legend, but no wind. Now returning after a hiatus, when I cared the absolute least about the game, when I had no clue what I was doing, was when the RNG gods decided that now was the perfect time to give me my greatest draconic desire.
    This was the greatest homecoming gift I could have asked for, and after finding the arenas rid of hacked VIPs (and other stupidly high level dragons), the limited-time offers and microtransactions becoming more tolerable, an event that seemed much less punishing than usual and video offers that were actually worth the brain-numbingly stupid mobile game ads, I welcome it with open arms and am happy to return to DC.
    There were, however, far fewer dragons added than expected, an some of them, I noticed, were reskins. I also noticed some glaring anatomy problems. I’m starting to become better at art, improving a lot in the past year or so, and I’m considering returning to my previous aspiration of becoming a DC artist. So maybe I’ll be able to become an artist by my next birthday and help bring more dragons to the game.

    I think the gold limits on the earlier habitats are in place to keep newbies from advancing too rapidly. Once you have a habitat at level 4 or 5, though, there’s no reason not to take that low limit off, since you’d be far past the point where those restrictions would apply to you. They should definitely raise the caps on terra and flame, since those are two of the most common elements and they are handy for housing a variety of dragons. I also would like a raise on nature and sea, I find those ones very versatile as well as beautiful.

    For adding the restrictions on the general chat. I was sick of seeing kids sharing information and saying and doing things they shouldn’t be doing, good thing it’s now 13+. Can’t tell you how many 9 year olds used to be spamming and doing questionable stuff on there, thanks for making the general chat more filtered and restricted. It’s much more tame and the people seem to have gotten more mature.

    @vlad-dracul I’ve also seen some big youtubers who obviously hack. Dragons at level 99, in the wrong habitats, obtained before official release, etc. If these people are the DC representation on youtube, this might encourage or even normalize hacking if nothing is done about it.

    I couldn’t help but notice that a lot of dragons (coyote, friendship, everest, zhu, grove, heaven and gel barrier, just to name a few) all have some sort of critter holding onto or flying around them that don’t seem to actually be considered other dragons. I wondered why these creatures were there and if they helped in any way.

    Familiars are said to be spirits or demons taking the form of an animal, person or entity that assists in magic or daily life in some way. These little creatures surrounding the dragons might be spirits summoned to assist the dragon in combat, magic and general life, much like a familiar. In some media, familiars and spirits are also said to be tied to those who summon them and will weaken or die if they leave their summoner (if they are able to leave them at all.) This helps explain why they seem to be so attached to the dragons, as they would die if they left the dragon’s side.
    I think it’s reasonable to say that some dragons summon spirits, fairies, animals and demons to act as companions and enhance their magical abilities. This is giving me tons of ideas for potential dragon designs. I just think it’s a cool idea that these dragons are accompanied by other creatures.

    I wish we had more time to just breed what we need to get and catch up on things. If we did, my boy Poccy, who is my apocalypse dragon that is at level 30 and 3 stars, would be 5-star and level 70 by now. I usually get apocalypse and not abyss, and because it’s just a slightly less appealing apocalypse, I’m not empowering abyss. I’d rather work on more unique elemental combos. If only blizzking was easier to empower, he’d be a monster.

    I’ve had no luck with wind (which I refuse to call air.) I’ve bred duplicates of each legend, but no, guess I’m not allowed to have this one because RNG hates me. It’s my favorite legend, too...

    I wasn’t here from 2013-15, and my memory of the game from 2012 is very fuzzy. Although that might be because I got my first pokemon game in 2012.
    Come to think of it, DC is a lot like pokemon. A small game launched on a platform on its way out that got popular quite unexpectedly, that is now very, very different from what it originally was.
    Both started out very humble. Everything was made to fit together, and were built mostly from the ground up. They were trendsetters. How many “raise, collect and fight with dragons on your journey to be the best while keeping them in habitats on islands” games (it’s pretty much a genre at this point) can you think of that are as popular as DC? None. How many mon games are as popular as pokemon? None.
    Both original DC and pokemon were something I was barely around for, yet still get nostalgic and wistful whenever people talk about it. They both had a clear vision that they followed and that was pretty much all they were. A while later, they changed. They added new elements/types, new dragons/monsters and new features. They started to do more event stuff. And those, in my opinion, were the haydays. Ones I was not around for, but still get very sentimental looking back on.
    But after the haydays, major changes were made. They lost some of the original vision, and slowly became much more corporate. Yeah, the influences of the originals were still present, but if they were made with the current vision in mind, they would be wildly different. Sure, there were some golden bits here and there, but everything seemed so stagnant for a while. Special things were no longer so special, the legendaries felt less legendary. It was losing its soul, and eventually realized it. They tried to praise the originals without realizing what made the originals so great, and yet still kept insisting its new stuff was so much better. All the old and new stuff was integrated so strangely, all the designs and gimmicks that don’t fit together.
    But what do you do in this situation: reverse the changes you made, good and bad, to maybe have a second chance, but lose a portion of the audience along the way? Or continue down your road and just stick to what you know, continue doing it, and ride it into the sunset? It’s less of a risk and, hey, you’ll always have SOME die-hard fans willing to splurge no matter what, and the eternally loyal who will stick with the game until the day it dies.
    Pokemon did this. They eventually couldn’t keep up with what they were doing. They couldn’t meet the deadlines. The quality started dropping, and now they can’t continue supporting all of what they made. Now 90% of their fanbase is against them, old and new fans alike.
    Pokemon has deadlines. They have an anime, a card game, and merchandise that they need to get out on time and they simply can’t sacrifice punctuality for their quality. But DC can. They don’t have these restrictions. They have altered and removed dragons and features a lot, and when they handle it right, they don’t make 90% of their fanbase angry. So much of what they originally stood for is still left intact, and they can go back to it without abandoning all of the good things they’ve made along the way. They’re still able to improve and please, and unlike pokemon which needs to do everything within a timeframe and is the only thing keeping gamefreak going, DC can put much more time and resources into improving.
    That’s why I love posts like this. It’s like finding a bunch of old coins on the road, or a vintage toy at goodwill. It’s a reminder of the greatness of the past, but something we can still integrate into our present without sacrificing some of the things we’ve made in the meantime. Something older players can look back on and smile, and something new players can discover.
    That’s how I think DC should be. Still remembering how it started and what it is, but still making improvements and new additions while preserving the greatness of the past, leaving behind their mistakes and growing pains. And, unlike pokemon, I think they can accomplish that. I’d go as far as to say they’re even on their way.
    Sorry for such a long post. I’m not ranting here, just explaining why I love this thread and how it relates to the current state and history of DC. Also, I’m kind of tired right now and I might have messed up some stuff. TLDR: Posts like these make me realize how much potential DC has to become better, and how, unlike most other games, they can do that.

    Sometimes, it says there are only one or two surveys and I get kicked out of both of them after answering two questions. I usually don’t get my gems, either. If surveys are really based off location, how come I live in a relatively normal and highly populated part of the US and barely get any surveys?
    I also sometimes go hours without any surveys. I only think one survey ever actually let me complete it, and it was VERY long.

    Though most would say that the strongest dragons are obviously heroics, an empowered (3 stars or more) four-element dragon (supersonic, promethium, apocalypse, abyss, mirage, forge and millennium) will outperform a heroic dragon at the same level and are much easier to get. Keep leveling up and unlock the breeding sanctuary and you can breed enough to empower them. It will take a long time to breed, recall and empower them but it’s worth it.

    @faerie-starv I think the linework could’ve been more consistent, as it is in places that don’t particularly need it but absent near the fins. The highlights are in places that they probably shouldn’t be on the tail and arms. I do like how you did the color gradient on the tail fins and the shine on the jewelry and would like to know how you did that, if possible.

    I’ve had an anonymous account for 6 years on mobile that I’m ready to transfer to Facebook. I’m afraid I’ll lose my progress, though. I remember one time years ago, my mom made a dc account on her Facebook and I asked if she could hook it up to my anonymous account for the free gems (the account was a different one than the 6 year old account I have) and it erased my progress and replaced it with my mom’s Facebook progress. If I do this with a new Facebook account with no dc account linked to it, will it erase my progress and go back to square one or will it safely transfer the account? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

    My DC account is on a hand-me-down IPhone 3 or 4 with almost no space left on it and barely any functionality. DC is the only this that still functions on it, but even still, it functions awfully, crashing every few minutes and prohibiting me from doing arena fights and videos due to the crashing. It runs at an ungodly slow FPS and struggles to load the game in under 5 minutes. My birthday is coming up in a month in a half, and at that time my mom will allow me to make a Facebook account to transfer my progress to a functional device and ditch the crappy phone forever. The game is becoming so painful to run on the crappy device, and with no means to transfer the save data until my birthday, there’s no other way to play. Should I spare myself the effort and go on a hiatus until my birthday, since my trashy phone can’t run most things without crashing every 10 minutes anyways, or should I keep playing regardless?
