    I am sure SP decided to put lots of the arena fights into the race to showcase how effective they were in weeding out the hackers. The pictures below, just from this morning:

    1. Two High Snow dragons, it was only offered in one race so far.

    2. Empowered High Snow dragon. Impossible for the same reason as above:

    3. Two Drummer dragons - only one is given for reaching the Primal arena:

    In fact, I was paired with the very same player with two high snow dragons three times and had to skip each time.

    I have reported them to support. But I don't expect the support will reimburse the gold/food/gems wasted to skip past them, because screw you players, SP doesn't care about bugs and hackers so long as these force players to spend more money give us your money SP is short on resources.

    If they did care, though, they'd (a) make reporting the hackers much easier - e.g., a "Report this player" button right in the arena screen; and (b) provided some bonus if the reported account is confirmed as been hacked. E.g. 2-3 free skips one could use instead of gems.

    We've been paying gold to produce some food... and getting the food back from the farm... but we have never seen who is working on the farms! Who, you ask? Dragons, of course!

    I suggest to add a slot on each farm to which a dragon is assigned. The level and the elements of the dragon would then determine a benefit it gives to the farm. A dragon with multiple elements gives multiple benefits. A dragon is marked busy and cannot be reassigned while the farm is producing.

    Here is an example list of bonuses I came up with:

    • Terra: grants bonus experience to the player, 1% per level (i.e. 40% at level 40)
    • Flame: has a chance to reset the cooldown on a random tower (Midarian, Jewelem, ...), 0.25% per level per day (i.e. 10% at level 40)
    • Sea: reduces the cost of the farming, 1% per level (i.e. 40% off at level 40)
    • Nature: increases the amount of food produced, 1% per level (i.e. 40% more food at level 40)
    • Electric: reduces the time for the farming, 1% per level (i.e. 40% off at level 40)
    • Ice: increases the time for the farming 2.5% per level and increases the amount of food 5% per level (i.e. food growing takes twice (+100%) longer but brings three times (+200%) as much food food at level 40) - think "winter crops"
    • Metal: Increases gold production in habitats during farming, 0.05% per level (i.e. 2% at level 40)
    • Dark: has a chance to immediately complete a random breeding (Sanctuary, Mountain, Tree), 0.25% per level per day (i.e. 10% at level 40)
    • Light: has a chance to immediately complete a random hatching, 0.25% per level per day (i.e. 10% at level 40)
    • War: a chance to add more fights to the Arenas, even temporarily exceeding the limit of 6 fights; 0.5% chance per level per day (i.e. 100% to add a fight on a "Super Producer" farming job with level 20 dragon). A chance that exceeds 100% means it guarantees one fight and has a chance to add a second, e.g. level 30 on a "Super Producer" would guarantee one extra fight and would have a 50% chance of providing two extra fights.
    • Pure: a chance to obtain chest with 20 random tokens, 0.5% per level per day (i.e. 20% per day on level 40)
    • Primal: a chance to obtain a chest with 20 orbs of any random non-heroic, non-VIP dragon, 0.5% per level per day (i.e. 20% per day on level 40); the chest could have common orbs (30% probability), rare (25%), very rare (20%), epic (15%), legendary (10%).
    • Legendary: a chance to obtain gems when farming, 0.5% per level per day (i.e. 20% per day on level 40)
    • Ancient elements (Chaos, Dream, ...): could provide bonus platinum/ancient gems (rubies, saphires...) but who cares? the ancient world is all but forgotten.

    This enhancement would mitigate the shortage of food that we have with more and more dragons and slightly speed up upgrades of the habitats to levels 3+. It would also encourage specific uses for the dragons we leveled up for specific events/arenas. It also encourages creative strategies during events such as heroic races or breeding events, as in - do you time your food collection for a chance to hatch some dragons and save the time on a node? or do you hoard up some extra arena fights to quickly sail through the next node? or if your alliance doesn't need the extra food right away, maybe you should take the extra time and grow even more food for a later node which needs it?

    I don't think the rewards are too excessive - for example the legend-element bonus would only provide an average of ~3 gems per day with a 40 level dragon with a legend element (0.2 gems per farm, 14 farms = 2.8 gems/day on average). But of course, the probabilities I gave above are just examples - they could be tweaked as needed.

    CS sent an egg of Frankie to one of my daughters, but not to the other and not to me (yet).

    @maunikaraju said in Hallo-Muertos Island 25 OCT - 5 NOV:

    @Bettina-Löffler I got around 132 orbs of Frankie through Freebie island. I summoned Frankie for the collection. After I summoned it, I got a message saying ‘something went wrong with the game. Please restart’. When I reloaded the game, Frankie was not being summoned and looks like I lost 84 orbs of Frankie. It only shows 48 orbs now.

    Is there anyway I can get those orbs back?

    Exactly the same thing happened to my and my daughter's account. To start with, getting 7x12 orbs (out of 8 videois - first video yielded food) of Frankie in this morning's batch of videos looked like a bug, too. My other daughter started to watch the videos this morning, then the game restarted in the middle of watching videos - and after the game reloaded, the videos were no longer giving 12 orbs each - it was back to a regular mixture of gold & food.

    I sent support tickets from both my and my daughter's accounts, and also reported by a few people in our alliance. But it looks lile their servers were improperly crediting the orbs to begin with, so I wouldn't expect them to give the orbs back 😞

    Oh well didn't get my Skeleton or Reaper eggs, but hey I stopped racing on the first day...

    6th & 7th laps were easy actually, with only one node requiring quests. I spent exactly one gem in this race and ended up at L8N1.

    @Nynaevelan said in Kumk'u sale (or steal) in the shop?:

    Sorry but this is nothing new, each limited sale has been the same...have you not seen the complaints of others mentioning that you will only be able to get 50 orbs when they go on sale?? And how is it stealing gems, you CHOSE to make the purchase? In fact there have been many complaints about the orb shop itself and the low stock that it has, both in permanent orbs as well as limited sale orbs...guess you just learned the lesson that others, myself included, has learned...never buy if you need or want more than 50.

    FYI I am waiting for the next Steal of Shielded and Wisdom orbs, I need 10 Shielded and 4 Wisdom orbs in order to summon them!!

    1. No, I haven't seen the complaints.

    2. The previous time-limited were on top of other ways of earning the same orbs in the game (e.g. the tree-of-life series of dragons that were earned in the heroic race and in the even right before it). So it made sense, at least, as a catch-up purchase for the next star if you're just a bit short. I don't think there have been Kumk'u orbs in the game, have they? What sense does it make to have 50 orbs?

    1. There have been several.

    And SP's reaction to those complaints? The usual, "screw yourself, our dear players"?

    The orbs of Kumk'u dragon were on sale in the shop - but after buying 5 batches of 10 each, it doesn't restock. There orbs have refreshed twice, but Kumk'u is still out of stock.

    I guess it is another method of stealing gems by SP (well, at least, tricking players into wasting them)? Who needs 50 orbs? It is not enough, neither to summon nor to empower.

    Nope. Yet another "feature" to extract the money from the gullible ones.

    Also, why is the Reaper shown as "NEW" in the rewards screen?
