The battle events are fun and I'm always excited to see what I get from the mystery box you earn, but I always know I have a small chance of getting something good from them. I have been doing the battle events for many weeks now and the only really good things I've ever gotten are 2 dragon eggs (Groncicle and Hobblegrunt and I already had 3 of each) and 1 stable. I used to get 20-100 gems a lot, but now I hardly get gems. What I usually get now are saddles and warpaints I already have 3 of. I wouldn't be as mad about the saddles if I could sell for half the price. The saddles I get are always defenders (I'd be a lot happier if it were the sleek saddles). Here's a list of things I've gotten:

 

Gold Mystery Boxes- Defenders saddles, Gems (rarely), dragon eggs (very rare and always ones I never want or need), and stables (very rare and always something I need)

 

Silver Mystery Boxes- Farm decorations such as Friendship Arches (I already have 10 friendship arches and they are no use to my sister who doesn't have any access to decorating her farm), and sometimes fish (fish are more common in the bronze, but I also get fish from here, too)

 

Bronze Mystery Boxes- Fish (I always get these from the bronze boxes, but there are sometimes dragon eggs in there I never get)

 

The one thing I really want from one of these boxes right now is a Speed Stinger egg. I already have 3 Speed Stingers but I really want another. However, it seems almost impossible to get a Speed Stinger egg, but it's not like I'm asking for a rare egg I don't have. I was thinking that it would be cool if they put a small amount of saddles in the gold boxes and put in dragon xp or UDT points. That way people are getting things that will help them or their dragon. I'm not really mad about the fish in the bronze because that seems fair, but why add the other good stuff no one ever gets? I think what I said about the dragon xp and UDT points would be great and would really help someone out, but that's just my opinion.

 

Thanks for reading and I really hope they add in the xp and UDT points.

Sounds Good

I agree. I always get things I don't need to. Rarely have I ever gotten gems, or something I didn't already have. However, you already get good amounts of Dragon EXP and UDT points from the battle, depending on how good you did.

 

It would just be really nice to be able to sell some of the things that we have. I have a ton of dragon eggs that I don't need and farming things too, like pens.

I wish we could sell items, too

I wish we could sell items, too. I made another forum about trading or selling not too long ago, but nobody responded. I agree with what you said about how much dragon xp and UDT points we get from the battles (battles are my main way of growing dragons now). However, I do think it would be great if I could get dragon xp or UDT points from a battle event box instead of a saddle I already have. What's so annyying about getting the same saddles and warpaints from the battles is that I wait 2 hours with almost nothing to do and then after all that waiting I get a saddle I already have.

PLEASE STOP COMPLAINING!

i really wish everyone would stop complaining about what they get in these mystery boxes.  THEY DON'T HAVE TO GIVE US ANYTHING!.  please just be thankful that you got something.  if you get something good, be happy about it. if you get something you have 3 of, just let it go! its not like they HAVE to give you anything! i get disappointed too but then i realize, ITS A GIFT! i bet those that complain about these boxes also complain when they get something they don't like at Christmas! get over it and just play the game!

 

so sorry for sounding rude but i have had it with all this complaining about these GIFTS that you get for FREE! in the words of my husband, it really "frosts my britches"!  its a free gift, so stop grouching!  please! especially in-game. there are sooooo many that get really MAD! about a gift!  a GIFT!?! really?!??

 

grrrrr! >:(

Hey everyone! Big John is comin'!

When you look past the part that sounds like complaining they actually have a pretty good suggestion. Adding UDT points and xp to the mystery boxes could be useful for some people and when you do get an egg or saddle it can make it that much more special.

 

P.s. There will always be someone who complains about something whether it be gems being hard to get, dragon eggs being to expensive, Toothless being a membership perk, or other people complaining.

But we already get such a

But we already get such a massive amount of XP from battle, why should we get even more from the boxes? Once upon a time people had to do months and months of shearing huge flocks of sheep to get their XP up to the single platinum star. Now it's so easy to get those UDT points that the platinum star barely holds any prestige anymore. The quicker a person hits their level caps, the more likely they're going to lose interest in playing further or doing more of those activities. It's not good for a game to be too easy, though Jumpstart does indeed seem to believe in taking out everything that makes the game challenging.

Just because there are always going be ungrateful people doesn't mean that they shouldn't be called out on it.

I concur. Every time SoD

I concur. Every time SoD gives us something for free, people just get even more ungrateful and demand even more free stuff. Before battle, the only free thing we got was the daily rewards. Now with battle we're absolutely spoiled. Oh boohoo, you got a saddle you've already got. So unfair after doing a whole five minutes of work. We should be able to sell it for gems. On top of the gems we can win from Gold boxes in battle and the easy gems from on quests and the daily reward gems.

Oh and they should give us free eggs for Easter. And our birthdays. And Christmas. And New Years. And we should be able to sell the duplicate eggs for gems. Gee whizz, talk about greedy.

Where did someone say that we are not thankful?

I do see your point because so many people use this forum to vent their in game frustrations and sometimes it the way it's worded can be infuriating however just because someone makes a post about something that they would like to see improved or changed completely does not mean that they are a complaining, ungrateful, spoiled brat no matter what it "sounds" like. As you must be aware on this forum anyone can discuss anything about school of dragons including the deluted battle even prizes.  Actually I agree with your statement that they don't have  to give us anything but infact that they DO bestow battle event prizes on us and they do not live up to being useful items which is a valid point that the original poster has made. 

 

BTW: it's not a free gift, it's compensation for destroying the ship. free is when you do nothing and get something anyway.

Not Complaining

We are not complaining. I understand that they don't have to give us these mystery boxes, and they are doing great in everything.

 

We are stating something that we simply don't like, which is what I would think game makers would want to hear, so that they can improve their games. Many people make this suggestion because it is irritating. I don't like having an inventory filled with stuff I won't use, especially if I can give it to someone who will. (Which at the moment we can't do, which is why we are stating it.)

 

It is rude of you to call us ingrates when we are stating our own opinion and trying to help improve the game. It is also rude to apologize but defend your rudeness. If you know what you are about to say is rude, then rephrase it to where it is not rude or don't say it at all. (There are gray areas, where you didn't mean to be rude, but someone took it as you being rude. At that point, you should be able to say that you were not being rude, and then clear up the misunderstanding.)

 

Now, back to the topic at hand. Let me show you a post of someone complaining. It isn't real mind you, it is just making the suggestion to this topic sound like a complaint.

 

"I'm so sick and tired of having all of this junk in my inventory! It's so useless! Why don't the developers just fix it already. I hate waiting for things! It totally messes up my game about not being able to do anything. On top of that, wouldn't it be better to just make the prizes better in the battle event?! I mean, if the game could just give me the things I needed, it would be so much better."

 

See? Complaining is often occompanied by being rude. The center of the paragraph is completely about me, myself, and I. Nobody else's opinion matters but my own. That is the difference between a complaining post, and a suggestion post that has the person's opinion in it.

 

It is okay to have opinions. That's what makes the suggestion threads so unique! Everyone has ideas and can show them to everyone else. They can give their reasons for wanting these ideas and changes. It isn't a complaint if someone wants to change something about a game. It just means that in their own opinion, they can say that another way might be better.

 

In that respect, I'll wrap up with a quick summary.

 

Please be mindful of others' opinions. They may not like a certain feature of the game, but that doesn't mean they are complaining. If many people comment about the same thing and want the same/similar changes, they are not complaining. It is just a highly popular opinion.

thank you for elaborating on

thank you for elaborating on your opinion. it does help to understand your point of view. 

 

that being said, i too, have an opinion that i am sharing. this just happens to be the post that closely relates to my point of view.  i hadnt meant to offend you or anyone else that shares your opinion. thats the beauty of this forum, we CAN share our point of view even if it is the opposite of someone else's opinion. 

 

i simply said that im frustrated about the number of people that DO complain about the items in the mystery boxes. because i shared my opinion about this on your post, you automatically felt like i was targeting you. since this is not the case, i would hope you would accept my apology.

Mine Too

You were right. I had felt targeted about your opinion, as well as the others who posted about the complaints, and that was my mistake. It felt like I was targeted because the comments were on this post. Just the same, like you who is tired of actually seeing these complaints, I too am tired of the similar situation that we saw here.

 

Person makes a suggestion, someone replies agreeing, and then a slew of other replies saying how tired they are of people complaining, whether or not they actually are.

 

Either way, I too am sorry. Like I commented about the gray area. This stuff happens. It is hard to get meanings across over printed words.

gray area frustration!

i see your point about the gray area and i agree.  i too have to be more aware of what i type before i do. your comment triggered a reaction in me that should have been worded in a way that your opinion wasn't overshadowed and that you wouldn't automatically assume i was referring to you.

 

i find i do the exact same thing in dealing with people irl. they make a comment triggered by what i say and i immediately take offense tho they meant no offense to me. its so easy to do. i just need to be aware of how i chose my words in expressing my opinion as to not cause the one making the comment to feel as tho i am targeting them.  again i express my sincere apologies.

I’m fine with the prizes. Yes it seems like I always get something useless, but that’s to be expected after a while. I would rather see new quest, mini game or event that will give different items.

You're right BittyBirdy.

You're right BittBirdy. It would be better to get new quest with awards rather than Battle Events with better awards. I just at least wish I could give away all my extra saddles to people who aren't as lucky at getting saddles as I am. I also agree with what everybody said about already getting dragon xp and UDT points from Battles, but it would be nice if I could get some extra xp or UDT points, but I guess what I get now is fine, too. Who knows, maybe they'll add in a selling/trading feature that will allow me to give my saddles and other items to people.

I know the feeling.

I know the feeling. The problem with trading and selling is that this isn’t a hugely popular game and they need all the money they can get to keep it going, so they would probably need to take away a lot of the free stuff to keep people buying.
