Alright, to the devs

you need to fix the adult night lights bumping

while racing, if you slightly touch a wall the adult night light comes to a complete stop

this makes it extremely hard to win the race especially on mobile

however this is not the case on the baby night lights 

please fix this issue 

thank you!

Goony posted about the bumping issue and said they're aware of the problem and he said he's suggested a couple different kinds of fixes and he's waiting to see which they choose. He said whichever fix they choose will take time to implement. I hope the issue isn't forgotten about and they continue to work on fixes for it because it is annoying. I also hope that when the fix is implemented it will help with the shield glitch some dragons have. Using a shield when racing some of the dragons will cause you to come to a stop.

If you're interested in joining, let me know even if all the spots in the clan are full. I might be able to find a spot for you. If you put in a join request in game and you don't reply on the Recruitment thread, if you could please put a brief message stating you've seen the Recruitment thread on the forum instead of the standard "Hi. Please let me join your clan." that would be greatly appreciated. :)

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

Hey there!

Hi there,

 

Nope, didn't forget! In fact, my adjustments just passed our first QA pass, so next time the team is together for a playtest session we'll see how it feels. I'll make more adjustments based on the feedback from the team, then once it goes through QA again based on those changes it should hopefully be good to go. Hopefully we won't see any major regressions from the change. If we do, then I'll have to adjust it again and wait until the next release.

 

The shield issue is a new one for me, I've never heard of that happening. Do you have any examples of shield and dragon combinations where it happens? If so just let me know, I'll ask QA if they can test it more thoroughly to replicate it and I'll try to roll a fix for that into my other bumping adjustments too.

Thanks for responding Goony! I'm glad to know it wasn't forgotten(I figured you probably wouldn't forget but with Summarhildr going on I know things are probably really busy for you guys so I wasn't sure)and I'm also glad to hear the update on where the fix stands.

 

There's a lot of dragons the shield issue happens with so I probably can't remember them all but I know it happens with most of the Strike class dragons in the game. The Strike class dragons I remember for sure that this happens to are the Night Lights, Skrill, and Woolly Howl. I think it may also happen with the Snow Wraith and Deathgripper but I'm not 100% sure. The Razorwhip and Ridgesnipper also have the shield issue. I know for a fact that there's more dragons than what I've listed that are affected by the shield issue but I unfortunately can't remember them at the moment. Thanks for trying to also fix the shield issue!

 

Edit: It also happens with the Silver Phantom.

So, I'm going to say this knowing that it's mean and selfish, but personally I enjoy the issue because it levels the playing field between the Nightlights and me and my Sand Wraith lol. Seriously though, hope it gets fixed, that sounds annoying.
