Battle Event - Glitch on the ship's health ?

Hello fellow dragon riders !


So, second post I write about the battle event... This time, well, as the title says, it's about the ship's health point. To be clear, I'm talking about the normal boats, the ones from the Berserkers and Outcast Island, not the event's boats.


Firstly, I'll be only talking about the defeats (this possible glitch doesn't appear when winning, you'll see why). Secondly, it happens with both kind of ship, Berserker (12000 HP) and Oucasts (9000 HP). Thirdly, when we lose, we receive as nomal a mystery box, an XP that's still ok.

So, let's go to the point. When there's a defeat and we were a lot of dragons, and we don't win nonetheless, I've started calculating the dragon's points. And the thing is, sometimes, the sum is higher than the ship's health !

For exemple, here's the numbers for the last battle I played at :
Number of dragons : 24

Outcast ship : 9000 HP

Sum of the dragon's damages on the ship : 16 880 HP

Difference : 9000 -16880 = -7880 HP

Average damages : 16880 / 24 = 703 HP

As you can see, there's a huge difference.

So, I've noticed this pattern for few days, and the difference is usually around 1000 or 2000 HP in addition to the ship's health, so I thought it was just the sum in the programming that went somehow wrong. But with this battle, it's the first time ever that the difference between damages and the ship's health points are this important.


I don't know if it's a glitch or if there's something else, I'm not an coding expert. But as frustrating as this may seem, I have to admit that if this is a glitch, I prefer this glitch to the one when the ship simply stops at the end of its path and there's no win nor defeat (there, we don't even got a mystery chest and XP at the end ^^)


So, discussion is open if you have noticed that too or if you have any idea of what's going on !


Fly well !

It's a really annoying thing

This issue you said about has been happening to me since the Dreadfall update, no matter if there was any event or there was a gap between Snoggletog and Dreadfall (ships were normal then). Also I've been having a problem with ship's health - it's not going down, it's just frozen when I and other people are attacking the ship. I'm sure it's a glitch, existing since the glitchy Dreadfall update. The question is why it hasn't been fixed for over three months. To be honest, I think it might be intented.


P.S.: The sum of the dragon's damages on the ship is always wrong, believe me. I checked it. I shot three times and took 19 points with each shot. Guess what. The scoreboard showed I took around 30 points instead of 57. I think that the system makes some mistakes in counting. To sum up, never believe the scoreboard ;)

That error has been around so long. I understand why you think it might be deliberate.


The scoring, however, always worked that way. Every (normal) hit you land in the center of ship scores 10 points, regardless of damage done, so 3 shots = 30 points is perfectly normal.

Critical hits score more, I think it was 13 points per hit some time ago. Hits on the fringe of the ship (prow, top of the mast) score less.

That´s why lot of people use a Scauldron in ship battles. 14 shots and high recharge rate. The damage doesn´t matter. 


I wasn´t born a cynic - life just made me that way.

I know the glitch isn't new, it just happens more often than before the events. I'm new only to the forum, not to the game :)


I knew it! I knew the damage doesn't infuence the scores! It was too suspicious XD But it raises a question for what the damage is. I mean, it's totally useless if it doesn't make your dragon better in battles.

The damage your dragon does determines how long it takes to sink the ship.  If you have a lot of people using high-damage dragons, it probably won't take as long as having a few people with low-damage dragons.  The ship has a set amount of HP, and every hit scored decreases that HP by the amount of damage your shot does.

You're right!

I've just remembered a weird situation. Once I was doing a battle completely alone - you know, the battle got glitched and the ship was stuck, but its health could've been taken. I was defeating this ship for around 45 minutes and I saw when its health was being taken away. Every shot took 9 points (I was using a Scauldron). I know I was alone, bacause I was the only one on the scoreboard, but it showed I took about 3000 points when it was an outcast boat. To sum up, the scoring is just weird in this game.


P.S.: I tried to edit my previous post and put this story above in it, but when I accepted changes it occured that Dragonriders Fury had just answered, so I couldn't do that. I'm saying it because I wanted to change the part about the damage - I'd realized I hadn't agreed with tirsdottir, so the comment would've been completely different.

I am having the same problem

Few it wasn't just me who is having this problem it's soooo

sad to see players also having this problem. If this happens to you here's how to fix it visit a friend who is also doing the battle when it comes through boom glitch gone and you 

start attacking the ship Warning when you do this you will see the glitched ship on the other side but do not worry after you destroy the non glitched ship,the glitched ship will also be destroyed. Hope this helped. Have a great day.
