    I started this race early, figuring I could get to lap 15 for 40 to 50 gems like I had done previously. Around lap 3 I realized this race was different and after looking at the requirements I though I would qualify and then stop. However, everyone else slowed down also, so when I got to lap 5 I was in the lead. At that point I decided to keep going, but not spend any gems. When I hit nodes that had insane requirements I would make 50 attempts then take a break for a few hours. In the end I made it half way through lap 9, node 5 (36 PVPs!) and ended up in the lead by less than a node.

    Along the way I kept track of attempts required for each breed/hatch. In previous races I averaged 10 attempts per success; this time it was close to 15. The message from the producer which said they made it easier was either a lie or one of their programmers made a significant error.

    It took 84 attempts to get the 8 breeds required for the first part of L4N5, which matches with the 10% chance listed on dragoncityguide, which is the same as it has always been. If they did something to make it "easier" to get items, it is not by much and certainly less than the increased requirements. At 10% L10N1 34 breeding requirement would take an average of 340 attempts! That's work, not fun.

    I am going to join those of you who are qualifying and stopping. After that I will probably take an extended break to wait and see if SP fixes some of these issues, or continues to make the game less fun causing more people to leave.

    @Nynaevelan I'm sorry that I'm being so dense but this is my first race and it is very confusing. What do you mean by 30 second ones. The shortest grow time for my food is 30 minutes

    You have to scroll in order to see all the options; the 30 second ones are on the bottom.

    Note that the PvP leagues at laps 10+ node 1 are now 8/5 instead of 6/4 (as they were in the last races). So it is not longer fitting with that "wait about 6 hours" scheme, you'd either have to wait 12 hours - or carefully time the PvP nodes around the level breaks (as combats refill when you finish a level).

    And, one must do 16 PvP matches when crossing from lap9 to lap10. Shame on you, SP.

    The normal schedule for PvPs is alternating 3 and 5, so that will work with a six hour wait time since no PvP requirement node immediately follows another. If you only have 3 PvPs when you start an 8/5 it will still work because the pool of 5 will be full after you wait the 6 hours.

    @Bettina-Löffler How did you get a one gem fight speedup? The wait times I am seeing on fights are two hours with two gems to speedup. Did you wait an hour then do the speedup? For the 5 fight encounters I have been spending 4 gems: fight, wait 2 hours, fight, speedup for 2 gems, fight, finish node for 2 gems.

    This race is going to be more expensive than previous ones. The wait time after the first fight on lap 4, node 3 is two hours and it would take 11 gems to finish the node. On previous races fight wait times were one hour except the last one which was two hours, so you could complete the node for 3 gems (2 for speedups) after waiting an hour for the first wait time. Now it will be a two hour wait and 5 gems (2 each for 2 speedups).

    Thanks to the videos it looks like I will have just enough to get Frightening, although I will probably have to give up a little sleep.

    I didn't think it would happen, but thanks to the luck @Nynaevelan sent my way I got all 3. Pigheaded just hatched. It also took about 80 gems.

    @Nynaevelan congratulations. Can I borrow some of your luck? I am at 25 gems spend and no success.
