Free Dragons on the run

Brief summary:

I open up SOD on windows, participate in a battle event, and close out. Come back on 2 hours later to prepare for another battle event but... I get a message about successfully training a baby Death Song? After being able to choose its colors and name it, the armorwing pops up and i now own both these 2 dragons. I've been told that this was just a glitch by other players and the dragons would go away after i completely log out and back in.... 

 

Note: I didn't say log in/out that often. I don't actually hit the log in/out button to play on an everyday basis. 

Note 2: I am NOT currently a member. Only 1 time in my entire history with SoD have i held a membership plan. That was back in 2016, when they gave out a free month coupon. During that membership time, i got the groncicle, death song, armorwing, singetail and eruptodon through quests. 

 

I don't want these dragons. I've got my share of the death song and armorwing. I don't want more. Can you take them back? I'll gladly trade them for a couple more stables.

Missing the full roster of my dragons happened in-between....

I should mention that after the baby death song was named, the roster of all my dragons popped up and all but my scauldron (my active dragon at the time) were gone. I logged out, and back in. Armorwing pops up. Named armorwing. checks roster, all dragons are on the roster, the baby death song and armorwing are there. Logged back out and in, baby death song and armorwing are still there. They haven't left me yet.

You might have to e-mail support to get those dragons removed. Once they're there, they're there to stay.

A workaround for the next time it happens: Close your game once you get the 'you just tamed' pop-up. The dragon will not be added to your list.

I did that for the armorwing,

I did that for the armorwing, which prevented it from being added to a stable. But for the baby death song, it just swooped into an empty stable without my consent of where to place it
What's the email?

That's odd. So you didn't even reach the point where you can name and colour it? That's a bit different from how the bug normally acts.

That's where it went wrong. You have to close your game before you accept the dragon. Naming and colouring it means you accepted the dragon.

Unfortunately, I don't think you'll be able to get those dragons removed. This glitch has been around ever since Icestorm Island was released and as far as I know, no one has ever had dragons that have been glitched to them removed from their account. In fact, if I remember correctly, I think someone once posted that Brynjolf told them in a pm that the SoD team is unable to remove those dragons.

 

When you got to the viking selection screen, was your viking alone, your active dragon nowhere in sight? If so, then never enter the game when that happens. You will definitely get a dragon glitched to you if you enter the game when your active dragon does not appear next to your viking on the viking selection screen.

Oops.

It's such a minor detail but yes. That is exactly what i saw on the viking selection (or login screen part 2). I only saw my viking (totally normal) but on the right side where the dragon is SUPPOSED to be... was empty. Unfortunately, I entered the game unknowingly, and with confusion, "Congratulations, you have successfully trained the baby death song" (or something like that) popped up. There's no other option but to hit the green ok. And now I'm stuck with 2 dragons, that I don't want. Luckily, only the baby death song has stolen a stable from me (yes it was actually stolen since i didn't tell it to "move in" to a stable slot. Somehow i have the armorwing on my roster, without it stealing a stable from me. Yes, i am able to swap the armorwing with other dragons. No, i have not sent either of them on any quests yet. 

 

If you think getting free dragons are cool, this actually sucks more than you'd think. I essentially lost 75? gems of a stable to a dragon that isn't very valuable to me. I'm also running out of stables too (I have 1 left before i need to get more to suit a dragon).

I thought maybe the reason you got dragons glitched to you was because of the whole " active dragon not by your viking on the viking selection screen" thing. There's a lot of people who don't know not to enter the game when that happens and then they get dragons glitched to them. I know the information came a little late since you now have 2 dragons you don't want but I guess on the bright side at least you know for the future.

 

I understand the frustration with getting dragons glitched to you. I've got 5 or 6 Groncicles that were glitched to me before I figured out how to avoid getting glitched dragons. For the longest time I didn't use them because I hoped that they would eventually be removed from my account but when they added the dragon name change feature I decided to just change their names(I had named them things like Mr Glitchy, Glitched, Glitched again, ect because I hadn't planned on using them), recolor them, and use them because I figured they were never going to be removed from my account.

Not sure if this has anything related to the glitched dragons...

and i didn't want to make a new thread about this: 

Logged in, and it brought me to berk docks, with the system saying my membership was expired? Holdup. As far as I remember, I don't have a membership. I've tapped on the fish trap in the farm a couple days ago, saying I'm not a member. I've clicked other stuff that are exclusive to members in the past month saying i wasn't a member. What's up with everything? I was just on the game when it unexpectedly closed out on its own (laptop) and now when i hop on, i want to hit the map and go to training grounds (ugh, missed another battle), but it's saying i need to finish my first adventure before i go exploring.

PS, is there an easier way to upload images/files/whatever? I guess i'm just gonna have to use lightshot

also... visiting my stables

also... visiting my stables because my dragon roster was all saying move in and not "make active" this happened:

https://prnt.sc/roiqph

All my dragons are here on the list though. 

 

Gave me tutorial on the stables, replayed the tower falling down at the school creating the infinite waterfalls. I wonder if the devs are working on my account?

 

Edit: All of my stable names have resorted to normal. How do i get the Boulder Stable UDT? Assuming that was bought in coins as all the other stuff with UDT are priced in coins.

The membership thing, the "you need to finish your first adventure" thing, and the cutscene showing the Hidden World Annex being discovered is likely due to the fact that the game hasn't been working very well since yesterday. I'm assuming that others are experiencing problems as well because I saw someone in the chat talking about how their game wasn't working correctly and doing the usual things to fix the problems I'm having(relogging, uninstalling and reinstalling) haven't worked. Since yesterday, I've had long loading times trying to get into the game, frequently get hit with the "create new viking" glitch when trying to get into the game, my dragons keep getting kicked out of the stable quests they're doing even though they haven't glitched out of their stables, my daily rewards keep resetting to Day 1 and I can't count how many times I've received the Day 1 bonus yesterday and today, it takes forever for the game to register that I'm feeding my dragons, and just today, the game glitched and my farm is showing that I have 241/400 decoration points(or whatever you actually call them) when I only have 208/400 so I've been cheated out of some decorating space unless it gets fixed. So yeah, the game is running like crap for me. lol.

 

You can't make your dragons active because they have glitched out of their stables. You'll have to move them back into their stables in order to make them active again.

 

You can buy the UDT Boulder Stable with coins once you reach a certain UDT amount. You can only buy it once per viking and I don't remember what UDT amount you need in order to be able to buy it.

 

I upload pictures and screenshots to Postimage in order to post them on the forum. It's free to make an account with them and pretty easy to use.

Ya know, this entire thing just summed up what i face on an everyday basis. I'd just assumed that the count resets if you swap devices in between the 24 hours.

Oh... So i must've impulse bought it and not realized that it is a one time transaction..... forever. Honestly though. Stables are not cheap.

 

 

Edit: Remember when i said the 2 freebies flew into me and only the baby stole a stable? Well, both of them are on my roster... but they aren't ever getting a stable! Which also means they will never ever be able to become active but pshhh i dont need them.

The daily bonus is definitely not supposed to reset even if you swap devices. I've had problems on and off with my daily rewards since they did the Dreadfall event but the last couple of days have been the worst. I've gotten Day 1 so many times I've lost track of how many times I've gotten those 5 gems in the past 2 days. XD

 

I did the same thing with the Groncicles that got glitched to me when my dragons would glitch out of their stables before I decided to use those Groncicles. I'd just skip over them when putting my dragons back into their stables. Even though you have to put all your dragons back into their stables at least the stable spot the Death Song was taking up will be open again.

Yeah, i remember most of where the dragons were but not all. It's fine though. Kicking that baby death song out was definitely fun. Though, i cant seem to think of a time where a player would purposely do that to a "main dragon," this bug should get fixed. Since they dont want us to be able to release the unwanted dragons, this can be seen as a way to "release" the dragon(s). 

 

I've got a speed stinger ready, Not 100% on the name yet. I'm thinking Rogue. I'm going to wait to hatch it to have it to commemorate these guys
