I noticed that everyone is starting to talk about the current state of the games and its bugs. I actually agree and I think SoD needs to fix this. However, I don't think the occassional thread here and there will fix this problem. Therefore I propose, again, a little "signature riot" as I'd like to call it. I have already put an image in my signature and you are all free to use it, but you may also make your own.

 

It seems the development team, or really anyone on the SoD team, read much of the forums (with the exception of Brynjolf the admin). I don't know if Brynjolf has any actual power in the company, but I hope he can notice what we're saying and attempt to bring it up to whoever has power if he doesn't have that himself.

 

Here is the direct link for my signature image so you can put it into your signature as well:

Well, thanks.. I don't know if anyone will go with this plan, but if I'm the only one doing it, I hope I post enough that someone notices.

oh yes

im so down for doing this, the whole reason i started using the forums was cause i was having problems with the ice bridge in icestorm islands "the golden room" quest, and i heard if you PM the admin youll be able to have it sorted out, which ended up not working as i was only told that the team know about it and are working on it, so im all for doing this as a way to get attention, even if it doesnt work, at least we tried

dear dev team, you have a great game here considering the type of game it is, the size im assuming your team is, and what type of game your trying to make, but you cant keep pushing out new content when theres so many game breaking bugs that prevent players from doing things in the game, for example, how are we supposed to enjoy new content, and expansions, when theres multiple bugs across multiple expansions that cause you to not be able to progress? my prime example being the ice bridge in the quest "the golden room" from the icestorm island expansion

 

im the type of person who plays things in order of release, so until i can get past this quest and finish icestorm, i cant move on to the expansion that came out next, and in turn, any of the expansions after that, i cant enjoy all the content the game has to offer, and it feels like all you care about is pushing out new content instead to make money, your a company, you need to make money, i get that, but you also need to keep your playerbase happy, and right now, thats by fixing all these bugs that make us unable to progress in quests and expansions

 

despite what we might say out of anger or annoyance, at the end of the day all any of us complaining about this want is for the game to be the best it can be, we want whats best for it, but that isnt happening while you constantly ignore the bugs and work on making new stuff

 

i feel like one of the issues here is the amount of games your trying to run, most of if not all of your other games are dead, school of dragons is your best and most popular game, and your overwhelming and overworking yourselves trying to keep all these other dead games up and running, so i suggest you shut down the other games, minus maybe neopets, because ive heard people play that game for nostalgia, and focus on school of dragons

 

new content is important to keep players yes, but so is keeping your game bug free, and a lot of these bugs are game breaking, like i said, how can i keep playing if i cant progress because the archaeologist is too stupid to cross the ice bridge on the second to last quest of icestorm island? fix bugs like these and then you can create as much new content as you want

 

oh, and even if these are small bugs, maybe fix bugs that have been in the game for over a year now, like the no dragon firing animation while flying, i personally can live without it, but if this bugs been in the game for over a year im pretty sure it needs to be fixed, but not before the quest bugs

                                                                             

 

toothless is NOT a titan wing

 
reason 1: that glow that people love to mention when they say hes a titan wing? thats just the glow he got from challenging the alpha, no dragon has ever gained a glow upon becoming a titan wing (from my understanding anyway, even if they have this still isnt that)
 
reason 2: the fins on his back, a lot of people love to think hes a titan wing because he can split his back fins now, but the titan wing stage is permanent, it has a rare chance of happening in a dragons adult years (lore-wise anyway, obviously it has to be different for a game) and it is a permanent change, so those fins cant be part of him "being a titan wing" because he can control them, they arent permenantly split in half, and this isnt even something he learned to do on his own, valka (hiccups mum) "unlocked" this ability by pressing 2 fingers behind his head and moving them around in circles, then his back fins split in half, ever since then hes been able to flap them open and closed at will, so thats reason 2 why he obviously isnt a titan wing
 
reason 3: when a dragon becomes a titan wing they have a lot of noticable differences to them compared to the normal version of the dragon, and they get a fair bit bigger than the dragons normal counterpart, reasons 1 and 2 aside, toothless has no changes to him at all, and even then the glow and his back fins dont really count as changes, because a glow isnt a physical difference and his fins are just split, and toothless isnt any bigger than he already was
 
so no, toothless, despite what you might think, is NOT a titan wing

Yeah, thanks for the support.  I do hope it kicks off :/ At the moment I'm stuck on Icestorm Island, with no way to progress. I have no quests there, but I know the expansion is not complete because I don't have the Groncicicle yet and you're supposed to get a teen one from the expansion for free.

where are you stuck at? theres some quests that you just have to look around for, for example i didnt get the groncicle until i found a knocked down tree with a quest marker above it

Hmm, well I think I left off at where I'm supposed to go into the ice caves or something, but there's nothing in there except for a slippery place where I can't walk into, since the place is locked for speed stingers. Also, I still have a baby groncicle sitting in a little snow nest.

Ok, nevermind. Apparently I was supposed to find speed stinger footprints. That was pretty subtle, but at least it's a problem solved.

*Edit: The problem was that I had not played in Icestorm for a while since I played it a bit while I had membership. Turns out some things must have been added or changed, so I was placed a bit back in Icestorm's storyline or something.
