    An advantage to this, if you haven't thought of it already, is to pick the dragons you're trying to level up and name them something specific like "C1" and then you can search for C1 to pull them out in the arenas instead of scrolling.

    I didn't even attempt the Hard path because after the previous Dragon Rescue where we needed specific dragons to progress. On those I spent gems rushing the last few key quests to get myself the needed keys, and then couldn't proceed because of the cooldown on the one specific dragon I needed. I wasn't going to do that again so I skipped it.

    The annoying part of an event like this is that it pulls gems/money out of you early to get one thing, thinking that's all you'll need to get. Then you learn progressively about the other things you need. It takes advantage of the sunk cost fallacy to make players keep pushing out gems/money to get the next piece of it. Since they already spent 900 gems on the dragons they needed and 500 to get the orbs to empower them, because it's not clear if they need to be empowered or not, and then 250 more rushing all the quests to get the keys. If the game had just said it's 1650 gems to get the keys and all the dragons at the beginning, nobody would have done it.

    I like the new things you can get from watching videos, like collectables that build do something decent. But I seem to have a lot of trouble getting it to actually play videos.

    I'm playing on an iOS device, and frequently I will either get a spinning wheel that never opens the video or, rarely, the video will play but I won't get any reward. Sometimes it just says no video is available at this time.

    Is everyone getting this or just me?

    The way I read this we can get Fire Knight, Nature Knight, Electric Knight. We need to win three quests to get three of the swords and watch vids to get three of the swords.

    That means we need to pay to get Holy, and we need to do something else, unsure what to get Dark and Ice.

    So ultimately we won't be able to complete the Dragon Rescue unless we're willing to pay for enough coins to grab the Holy dragon, and even if willing to do that, make sure the Ice and Dark are somewhere available, and even if we're able to get those, get lucky enough to get the three swords from the videos, and even if we're that lucky we have to be able to complete three quests which, based on past experience, we won't have time to complete without spending a lot of gems on the last few steps of each.

    So I think I'm skipping this dragon rescue as well. It's a shame because it's one of the more enjoyable parts of actual gameplay.

    @bettina-löffler said in Event Types - Discussion on Pros and Cons:

    Also I dont like that rescues are like blind dates. Often players spend money or gems just to find out that it is still not possible to finish it.

    Still laughing at this. That's exactly right. I don't even get involved in the rescues now unless there's a clear system for obtaining keys and it will be possible to have a satisfactory resolution.

    For similar reasons I also don't do blind dates.
