As long as i can remember, racers believed that those with a flight suit were faster. Or that some vikings are faster than others. And that those unbeatable-racers (EagleWatch for example ) are glitch-racers. Has anyone ever bothered to look whether they were using a hard drive? Thats the key. My sister and i performed a couple of tests to rationalize this. I raced on using Wifi, she raced using Hard Drive. She won, i lost. Then we switched places.( Btw were pro-racers so we know what were doing) I raced on using Hard Drive and won, and my sister on Wifi and lost We did this MULTIPLE times and the dame results came through. Then, using the hard drive, my sister ,Hannah the Wise, raced some racers that were basicly impossible to beat(im not doing names)and crushed them. Hmmm this should get an admins attention now shouldnt it?

Wolf

 Art done by Fireflash

Wolf is my in-game character. Her full name is 'Wolf and Star'. She takes on my own personality, which is quite similar to that of Lynx. During quests Wolf loves to muck around and try to break the system by utilizing glitches- just for laughs, but she always produces reliable results. She is a fair viking and  she never uses glitches for her own personal gain. Some of my profile info will be listed below:.............

Lynx

 Art done by DuskDayBreak

Lynx is bold and loud She is like Luna Lovegood in the sense that she is rather... odd. Loud, shameless and weird. She is more animal like than human. Lynx enjoys being flashy, showing off her skills. Once she sets her mind to something, she is natrually good at it. The problem is that she loses focus easy and doesn't like setting herself to standards. She craves adventure and can grow bored easily. She is particularly fast on her feet, but has low stamina levels. She is strong and tall for her age. Lynx is stubborn and laid-back most of the time. She does not like to follow orders. Some of her skills include: being double jointed, the ability of being able to climb almost any surface, very good at mimicking animal sounds and is EXTREMELY good at sneaking around. However, there is a side to Lynx that she does not show very often. She is very lazy and selfish at times, mainly because she lacks compassion twords humankind, caring more about dragons and animals more so than humans. This tendency causes her to be merciless in the face of battle.

 

 

 

........Lyra

 Art done by xXSadieKaneXx

Lyra is very concealed and secretive. She rarely shows emotion and looks down on those who do. She is insanely obervative and could possibly rub off as edgy. Lyra can be rudely scarcastic, and may accidently hurt you. Don't expect remorse.  Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. She WILL kill. Lyra is willing to do anything to ensure her well being, and the well being of her mother. Which could be a weakness. she values her self preservation. She doesn't talk much either. She usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face and long hair

To clear things up a little, one, im not a pro racer. Second the hard-drive is nothing but a drive that doesnt run on wifi. Third, when i do win against really good racers in a race, it doesnt matter whether i used the hard drive or not-it depends on if my dragon hits something due to the jerkness of the game (which is a 99% chance on the drive that runs on wifi and a 1% chance on the hard drive)

Personality Description (Hannah)

 

                                                        ~She has a good soul, but a dark heart.~

 

 

   

                                     She can be quite fierce sometimes,and be stubborn about things (not great if it  is for the wrong reason) but she is understanding and has kindness sowed in her. She is touchy during racing though-and can be rude (she runs on pure fury during races) if you pis her off...Although she may not always admit  it (and fix it) she will try to make things right when she makes a mistake. As for mistakes, she makes a lot of them ("try to be wiser next time" she scoulds herself).

 

She loves all her dragons very much, as they are as close to her as family and friends- and would go out of harms way to protect them.

 

She absolutly enjoys racing, wandering around the wild areas with her dragons, and flyingn upside down (rules are ment to be broken)

 

Favorite things to eat and drink are cremesoda,  ice-cold water, and apple cider ; chicken, pinneapple, celery, and anything with bread. Anything with chocolate is her favorite desert.

 

Favorite color- very deep, rich, purple.

 

Favorite places in the world-anywhere with mountains, and trees, and snow etc.

 

and thats all i have to say!

Well you do have over 14,000, so ya ur a pro racer. Also you never beat the good racers unless you use direct connection. I should know cause im your own sister! Direct connection makes things go smoother. Wifi can be kinda shifty. Thats why sometimes your dragon stops and even tho you didnt hit anything. Or all of a sudden the game gets jerky. Thats the Wifi's fault. With direct connection you get nothing but smooth gaming, meaning less jerkiness and glitching.

I see that the hard drive thing has already been cleared up, so :þ

Wired connections are always more stable and much faster than Wifi, hence the reason that so many people recommend wired connections for videogaming. I don't see why anyone would race over wifi unless they have no other choice!

 

This has nothing to do with SoD; this is just how it's always been.

-insert subject here-

Hmm...

 

I have asked my internet provider -who is also my friend- if wired connection is truly more reliable and faster than WiFi and he replied it was a myth, nothing else. There is absolutely NO difference between WiFi and wired connection speed/reliability. If your router coughs and you lose wifi connection, you also lose your wired connection at the same time.

( Your ISP is a single person? :0 )

 

But no that's not true at all. It is true that you might not notice a difference if you use the 'net moderately. (aka someone who only browses and checks e-mail won't notice, anyone who plays online games that depend on short response times will notice.)

Wifi oftentimes has a crappy data speed limit whereas wired connection have a higher data speed limit. This does depend on the bandwidth though- but most people still use 802.11n.

 

More speed == quicker everything and shorter response times. Within your home network, this matters. Wired connections don't get interfered with in normal circumstances whereas walls, phones, microwaves, lead, wireless devices, your neighbour's wifi, electronics and much more can all interfere with your wifi connection to the modem/router- and they will. Wifi technology just isn't what it should be yet.

 

The connection TO the modem matters in this case. If the connection to the modem is bad, there'll be lag. If you have speedy internet, say fiber, you won't get your money's worth out of it by using wifi either. The maximum speed is simply lower when it comes to the connection to- and from the modem to your device.

If both your wifi AND wired connections drop at the same time, you might need a new router and/or modem or there's some other problem that needs fixing.

To this day

Written by Shane Koyczan

 

I'm not the only kid who grew up this way

Surrounded by people who used to say that rhyme, about sticks and stones

As if broken bones hurt more than the names we got called and we got called them all

So we grew up believing no one would ever fall in love with us

That we'd be lonely, forever...

That we'd never meet someone to make us feel like the sun was something they built for us in their tool shed So broken heart strings bled the blues As we tried to empty ourselves so we would feel nothing.

Don't tell me that hurts less than a broken bone.

That an ingrown life is something surgeons can cut away

That there's no way for it to metastasize It does

 

She was eight years old

Our first day of grade three when she got called ugly

We both got moved to the back of the class so we would stop getting bombarded by spit balls

But the school halls were a battleground we found ourselves outnumbered day after day

We used to stay inside for recess Because outside was worse

Outside we'd have to rehearse running away or learn to stay still like statues giving no clues that we were there In grade five they taped a sign to the front of her desk that read "Beware Of Dog"

To this day despite a loving husband, she doesn't think she's beautiful

Because of a birthmark that takes up a little less than half of her face...

Kids used to say she looks like a wrong answer that someone tried to erase but couldn't quite get the job done And they'll never understand that she's raising two kids whose definition of beauty begins with the word mom! Because they see her heart before they see her skin, because she's only ever always been amazing!

He...

 

...was a broken branch grafted onto a different family tree...

Adopted...

But not because his parents opted for a different destiny...

He was three when he became a mixed drink of one part left alone, and two parts tragedy

Started therapy in 8th grade

Had a personality made up of tests and pills

Lived like the uphills were mountains and the downhills were cliffs

Four fifths suicidal a tidal wave of anti depressants depressants and an adolescence of being called popper

One part because of the pills, ninety nine parts because of the cruelty.

He tried to kill himself in grade ten when a kid who could still go home to mom and dad had the audacity to tell him "Get over it."

As if depression is something that can be remedied by any of the contents found in a first aid kit.

To this day he is a stick of TNT lift from both ends.

Could describe you in detail the way the sky bends in the moments before it's about to fall

And despite an army of friends who all call him an inspiration

He remains a conversation piece between people who can't understand that sometimes, becoming drug free Has less to do with addiction and more to do with sanity!

 

We weren't the only kids who grew up this way...

To this day kids are still being called names.

The classics were "Hey stupid" "Hey spaz"

Seems like every school has an arsenal of names getting updated every year

And if a kid breaks in a school and no one around chooses to hear do they make a sound?

Are they just the background noise Of a soundtrack stuck on repeat When people say things like

Kids can be cruel?

Every school was a big top circus tent

And the pecking order went from acrobats to lion tamers from clowns to carnies

All of these were miles ahead of who we were we were freaks..

Lobster claw boys and bearded ladies

Oddities

Juggling

Depression

And loneliness

Playing solitaire, spin the bottle,

Trying to kiss the wounded parts of ourselves and heal

But at night! While the others slept, we kept walking the tightrope

It was practice and yes some of us fell

But I wanna tell them that all of this,

Is just debris...

Leftover when we finally decide to smash all the things we thought we used to be

And if you can't see anything beautiful about yourself get a better mirror!

Look a little closer!

STARE A LITTLE LONGER!!

Because there's something inside you that made you keep trying despite everyone who told you to quit.

You built a cast around your broken heart and signed it yourself, you signed it

"THEY WERE WRONG!!!"

 

Because maybe you didn't belong to a group or a cliche

Maybe they decided to pick you last for basketball or everything

Maybe you used to bring bruises and broken teeth to show and tell but never told

Because how can you hold your ground if everyone around you wants to better you beneath it

You have to BELIEVE THAT THEY WERE WRONG!!

 

They have to be wrong...

Why else would we still be here?

We grew up learning to cheer on the underdog because we see ourselves in them

We stem from a root planted in the belief that we are not what we were called

We are not abandoned cars stalled out and sitting empty on some highway

And if in some way we are don't worry

We only got out to walk and get gas

We are graduating members from the class of we made it

Not the faded echoes of voices crying out names will never hurt me

Of course... They did...

But our lives will only ever always continue to be a balancing act that has less to do with pain

And more to do with beauty...

Hmm, I always race using wifi because (confession) I stink at steering with arrow keys. XD The iPad controls are easier for me. Yet I almost always manage to make 1st-2nd place, and I've beaten some VERY skilled racers.

  • Violet, Female Changewing- Named after Violet from The Incredibles. Fond of swimming, and up for any adventure.

Other Dragons

  • Oddmund and Dinkly, Male Zippleback- When I first hatched these guys (this guy? who can tell), I took them to practice their fire skills at a fire pit. They lit it successfully, then promptly laid their heads in the flames and went to sleep. True story.

  • Tony Stank, Male Armorwing- Iron Dragon? No?

Apparantely the use of flight suits does matter somewhat. Near the end of January, Brynjolf posted a thread about people reporting that using flight suits in racing was giving them an advantage over others. He said the team was looking into it and would be trying to come up with a fix for it. So apparently, that issue does exist.

 

I don't know who's been accusing EagleWatch but she's not a cheater. She's on my friends list and I race with her quite frequently. She's never cheated, ever. She's simply an excellent racer and I think she wears some clothes that improve stats as well as usually racing on Toothless. I will defend her to the very end because she's a friend and I can't believe someone would be accusing her like that.

-sigh-

please understand that LilyStark does not speak for me and i am not accusing anyone of cheating-infact, i wasnt even expermenting with her at all-i was just randomly racing for fun. As for the wifi and computer stuff, i dont know enough about that (more or less i dont really care ) to determine if it makes your dragon faster or not.

I'm not sure if you're replying to me or not, but I wanted to say I didn't mean to imply that you were the one accusing EagleWatch. I just wanted to make sure that everyone who reads this thread knows that I've raced her before and she's not a cheater. I didn't want the rumors to get worse than what they already seem to be.
