Basically I was racing, everything was just fine and waiting for the next one when I'm suddenly told I am being logged out. Find it no big deal, I've heard plenty of people say they experience this even though it rarely happens to me tbh.

So I log back in. It takes forever to load to my viking, and usually closing and reopening the game when it does helps me, but when I did, it just loaded forever for the Play now to be clickable and while I did, this appeared

 

 

Obviously I couldn't do anything but just close the game or click okay and see what's up. Once I did, the Play now just finally became an option, so I went ahead and clicked it. Ended up taking forever to load again so I decided to close the game and everything and start restarting my computer while I went on to check on my phone (having it for the extra daily 5 gems and speeding up quests) if it was having any issues while it was off my WiFi. It ended up needing to download a ton, and this appeared for a second while it was.

Once I clicked okay though, it just kept downloading, and once it did I just closed the game before reopening it.

After this, my phone has managed to get to my viking, and have yet to try on my computer. I just have never experienced this nor have seen this before, expecially the failed to download part. Anyone know what's up with it possibly?

I had that two or three times on my old phone, I assumed it was because of the small storage.

Things you don't need to know about me and my dragons to stay alive: My viking's name is nightrainOfSummer. She's not really a character, rather a version of myself. I do have a story but it changes a lot so I don't write it here. My second viking's name is HighwayMintOvO. I named both after amazing songs (Nightrain by Guns N' Roses, Highway to H.ell by AC/DC and Highway Zero by Izzy Stradlin), Mint, our almighty goddess and OvO, the one and only stalker king Psycho Boneknapper.

Outside of game info: I love listening to music, most of my dragons are named after songs. I'm watching One Piece (finally at the current episode) and what I like the best about HTTYD are the dragons. My favourite dragons are the Skrill, the Stormcutter, the Triple Stryke and the Moldruffle. I also play Rise of Berk and I read Warrior Cats (in German). My favourite movie is Into The Wild (no, not only because of the soundtracks... but they're a big part of it too XD)

My characters
Those are documents mainly about my dragons, but also adoptables and own characters. I'd like to thank everyone who made art for me, I'm always happy to see others' interpretations of my characters. I'll link them soon. I will also link the songs I named them after, if there's no music video I'll link a live video because they're more interesting to me. If there's no decent quality live video either I'll try to link an audio XD

Probably a file got corrupted during the download somehow, so the game had to re-install or they're just being buggy again.

Both are equally possible.

Please SoD developers, fix your bugs first. While the community may be overwhelming at times, in the end, most of the time they simply want what's best for the game. In terms of population and overall development process, SoD is by far your most successful and most developed creation. I feel that part of the problem is that you are running other games and overwhelming yourselves. These games are basically dead and few people play them anymore, with the exception of Neopets, where some players are still active for the nostalgia.

Also, I am aware of times where the community is desperate for certain updates or dragons. But I beg of you to strive for a clean, bug free game first before pursuing these updates. Doing this will make your company appear more reliable and trustworthy. I agree, new content is needed to help keep players. But so is fixing bugs. Many of your bugs can be game breaking as well, causing potential customers to leave.

This is why I believe your team should consider fixing bugs more than doing updates. I can wait for an update, but game breaking bugs I can't.

Everything luckily ran fine around after making this post, so looks like it was SoD being SoD with the bugginess
