Doesnt it feel weird that even you got first place in the battle but sometime you get a friendship arch?

What I want to tell you is it is so unfair for someone who are good in battle and end up in getting a first place in the battle then you got some very awkward reward like 800 coins, friendship arch, the warpaint you already had etc.

My suggestion is the battle should have gived the 'guarantee' prize, example like 10 gems for sliver or like this

: 1st -75 gems

  2nd-50 gems

  3rd-30 gems

  4th-the last gold rank- 25 gems

I think it would be so much better to have a guarantee gems prize rather than using your luck..

Thanks for reading >S<

And

And it could be even worse that you got like sixth, fifth or fourth but then you are super lucky get a 200 gems then look back at the poor first place that got friendship arch or warpaint.

Ghost Light the Flightmare froze my subject. Deal with it.

I'm not so sure about gems for only people who got gold. The people who get gold in the battle events mostly have many dragons (because they have more shots), and if they get gems, they'll be able to buy even more dragons, while the people with not that many dragons won't get any gems, so they also won't get many dragons.

I think that the idea of giving everyone gems (so gold gets like 20 gems, silver 10 and bronze 5 for example) is much better. But one thing: I don't think the SoD team will give that many gems as a reward for battle events. It already is really hard to get gems with the events.

 

But I agree that it can be kind of stupid if you got first place and get an awkward reward. Today my sister got gold in the battle event and she won a fish... Really. A, fish...

Yes

But if you are trained, Gronckle can get first too, by flying in the yellow light thingy then aim to he ship and shoot the ship like Scauldron do. My friend do that quite often and they always end up getting first but yes, its hard to get the gems in this game TT

Well, you normally battle flying a nice battle dragon with a lot of shots and throw what you've got at the boat and fly to the yellow rings to regenerate your shots, so people with a Hobblegrunt outfight people with a lot of weak dragons. And there are people who fight from the ground, but it is very ineffective because changing dragons take time and only one dragon of each species actually shoots (at least that is what I've encountered)

 

But I like the way we get stuff from battles. It is like a chance for getting gems or warpaint or saddles. Even if the chances of you actually get to use it is slim, it is still there. Or would you rather they don't give anything to people who rank low? (You can get a Hobblegrunt egg from Bronze, I tried, twice)

 

Battles prizes are sometimes extremely annoying, but when you finally get an egg, does anyone remember that? Arrgghhhhh!!!! ALL THIS TIME I HAVE BEEN BATTLING AND I GET FRIENDSHIP ARCHES. Ooh! I got a Stormcutter egg this time! BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? I WILL NEVER FORGIVE THOSE FRIENDSHIP ARCHES!!!

 

sorry if this offended anyone

Ah, but I have to disagree with you. Mind if I engage in a friendly debate?

 

 

I shoot from the ground,it is safe to say that I have never encountered the problem where only one of my dragons shoot. I have actually timed it as well. Switching dragons take significantly less time then flying back to regenerate. That is, if you know where your dragons are located in your list, which I do. Anything that I have found that is similar to the problem you've mentioned is that you cannot use two of the same dragon species. If I use a scauldron and I switch to another scauldron,  that second scauldron will not work. But that is fine with me because I have enough dragons to substitute. I also have a hobblegrunt and a screaming detah which I can switch to in 3 seconds. When I collide into the shIP to refill my shots, it takes over 10 seconds.

So, I conducted an experiment. First, I fought the way I normally fghy, on the ground. Then, I fought the way most people fight. And I scored around 600 points and 3rd place. The first time I fought I scored over 700 points and got first. Now, I know it is not too accurate seeing as we cannot mimmick the exact happenings of the battle in the rounds after, so, I am searching for a person to battle with me using the other strategy and see how we do.

Also, it is known that firing at the deck is much more damaging than firing at the post. But if the blue bar on top of the post refill, the boats health would return. Flying in the air does allow you to switch from deck to post, but in the long run, firing at the deck constantlyraises your score, as long as others are firing at the post.

 

However, because of my research, I have come to the conclusion that it is indeed more efficient to shoot from the ground rather than the air because you deal out more damage, spend less time regenerating and get a higher score. 

 

 

 

 

I feel like I just wrote an essay for my English Teacher. LOL!

Wolf

 Art was 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:.............

Characters:

 

 

 

 

Lynx

 Art was 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 naturally 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 to be 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 towards 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 was done by Marg The Loony and Chameishida

Lyra is very sheltered and shy. She suppressed her emotion and looks down on those who do are emotional. Lyra can be rudely sarcastic at times and accidentally offend someone. Don't expect a public display of remorse. This does not mean she is feelingless though, she feels emotion, but, she is just very insecure about it. She does not like showing weakness or personal attachment, more insecurity, and less sociopathy. Though in fights, she doesn't appear to have a sense of honor and isn't afraid to fight dirty. 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 usually has her hood masking her pale delicate face, which sunburns easily and long hair.

 

 

 

Nyx

 Art was done by DuskDayBreak

One of Nyx's most defining traits is her brash and sarcastic attitude towards everything that breathes. She is the type of girl who does not have to do much to stand apart from the crowd. However, Nyx is no way an extrovert, the reason why she puts herself in social situations is purely one of two reasons, the first one being is that she wants to go people watching. Where she sits in some corner and watches people, how they react and their social cues. She just observes them, untangles their motives and finds their interests. The second reason is that she wants to show up the competition, along with being stubborn, Nyx is a show-off. The problem is, natural talent can only get you so far. Because of her years from people watching, she has become very keen on observations. Smarter than the average person, she is able to look at any given Viking and deduce a thing or two about them. Sort of like Sherlock Holmes but not nearly as skilled. With her great intelligence, comes social anxiety. Nyx buried this under layers of brashness but, this insecurity can be sorted out by the way she avoids social and emotional get-togethers. Due to her inability to express her social anxiety, Nyx finds herself at a lack of friends. She usually plays this off as her not wanting any friends but sometimes, when a dragon is your only friend, you can get lonely. The result, she makes a lot of enemies. Usually because of her showoff-ness and Brash attitude, and sarcasm. In reality, Nyx wants some friends, but she sees this as a weakness and as part of her insecurities which she buries deep inside of her and does not let anyone see. She's not edgy, she's just misguided.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aeryn Nyght

 Art was done by Tosilohi

Aeryn also has a sense of show-off-ness, an over-the-top, dramatic character. She takes any given situation, brandishes it with a flare of sarcasm and performs, drawing attention to herself all the while managing to act edgy or sweet, or however she wanted to be perceived. This need of hers to put on a show made her invaluable to the man while she was on his side. Like the theatre kid she should be, Aeryn has expertly crafted this skill of taking on different personas, and she isn't afraid to add in some cliche drama to her dialogue and actions. Constantly referencing pop-culture, Aeryn is interesting, but the tiring person to be around. The problem with her extroverted, boldness is that few get to witness the actual Aeryn, not one of her many characters. In a sense, it is quite similar to the multifaceted personality disorder, only, Aeryn recognizes her many personas. She chooses not to show anyone her true colors due to some insecurities. These different personalities are the shields she has put up for emotional protection. With Aeryn, you never know if her reactions are genuine or just part of the show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gail Cyrek

 Art was done by Katarile

Gail is very softspoken. She does not like attracting much attention as people have a tendency to stare. She is very insecure about her face and does her best to conceal it. She gets very annoyed if someone asks about it. However, with this silence comes the ability to listen. She observes the world around her and is able to spot even the tiniest of details. This silent brilliance has made her a stellar judge of character. She reads body language very well and has a certain flare of stubbornness about her. Still, she is very dark. Generally, when she speaks, most people cannot hear what she says, which is probably a good thing because what she does say is usually pretty dark or gory. She often says random and slightly disturbing things and speaks extremely softly anyone can barely hear her. Gail seems to be pretty timid but is generally ruthless. She is a bit of a pyromaniac and will do almost anything to get her way.

The other way

Im not gonna write the essay because Im suck at it XD But If you use 1 dragon in the battle, you could use this rlly rlly common way but it takes more skill. You might also know it that the light ring regenrate your dragon shot continiously and the ppl use that as an advantage by stay in that ring then shoot the ship without stopping, in the Alvin you dont have to stay in the spot where the ship will pass by but you stay in that ring and if you have a good far-aim dragon like Scauldron, it can shoot the top of the from the red target thingy which is easier but then after the red target gone you need to aim to the bottom of the ship which is not rlly easy but not rlly hard. But if you have more skilled, you can even use your gronckle to do this method for Alvin and Dagur(But Dagur use more skilled) I also be the one who get beaten by Gronckle so often..

Ah yes. I've seen people doing that, but dragons fireballs are never true. Your facing one direction and the shot flies off in a complete other direction. You'd have to rely on chance to hit the thing, which, is a risk, I'm not willing to take.

"What you get isn't your choice, its what you do with it"

Wow! Xanidu Just summed up what I was gonna say! That was actually an accident too!

So yeah, I think battles are great tthe way they are.when you fight you gets prize, sometimes its gems and other times inpts arches.but if you think about it those arches can be used in access to make a really cool fence! And you don't have to buy the games super expensive ones!

And yeah, battling on the ground is how I win my gems. I always do it with my character who has enoughdraghons. I have a new one two, so she will fly until I have enough dragons to ground fight. But still, fighting in the ground is always better. You really only need like four or five dragons to do it too! And it works great if most of your dragons are teens, since they can fight too!

Changing dragons takes less btime then renewing energy, and it often gives you better playing and prizes. I never won an egg until I did it that way.

 

 

And yet, on the whole egg thjing, my first egg from battle was a changwing egg, my sisters was a harder. I was thrilled that I could actually win one! Since then I've won a sandwraith, wholly howl, a second groncicle, and most recently a scouldron. And like a thousand gems in all. Which helped me get all bthe expansions! So yeah, ground battling is gepreat, and prizes? Just try and fupigure bout where the gems are, wat h the prizes and remember their places, then compare what you get with where out was, you'll get gems sooner.
