Okay so, I have a newly hatched Stormcutter I named TeChalla (in hommage to T'Challa from Marvel's the Black Panther since I named my first Stormcutter Ororo after the X-Men character Storm's real name and these two characters are husband and wife in said comics). So I go over to the lab to play a few rounds, get some XP for him try to at least get him to level 5 before doing the whole battle swap thing, as per my usual ritual when I have a hatchling dragon to raise. When suddenly I realize... Not only have the dragon's max level increased, but also the amount of XP we're getting from mini-games, Eel Roast included, I checked, has been

 

SEVERLY NERFED!!!!!

 

And I mean it has been cut TO THE BONE!!! I am super pi$$ed about this, in case the blood red highlight, large letters itilicized and in bold font didn't adequately indicate that. Usually, you'd get about 80 Dragon XP if you at least scored 18000 pts (points), 90 XP for 20k or so, in the lab minigame, which after about 7-10 plays, depending on game lag affecting your scores, maybe would get your dragon to teen... well now if you score 20k+ pts in the lab mini-game you only get... wait for it... a measly

 

10 FREAKING DRAGON XP!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!?!?!!?!!!!???! This is absolutely ABSURD!!! It's outrageous! I'm pretty sure the amount of Dragon XP you get from Eel Roast has been cut too because once I realized how little XP I was getting from the lab game I decided to check it out. I played to level 15 and had close to 50k pts (that's probably on the low end of scores at that level I'm sure) and only got 67 XP pts for my dragon. I am absolutely furious. There is absolutely NO REASON, AT ALL, WHAT. SO. EVER for this rediculous Dragon XP nerffing. If anything, with the level limit increase, the amount of dragon XP we get from these minigames should have INCREASED not decreased. This literally makes the lab game not even worth playing anymore. Since it's only giving out 10 XP for 20k pts scored, this minigame is now completely useless. It's not even a very good time-killer to be honest.

 

It's bad enough that the glitch at Auction Island, which only I seem to be experiencing, hasn't been fixed, but this? There are not enough words in the English language alone to truly express how livid I am nor how much of a frankly d*ck move this is.

Switch to your baby dragon right before battle ends... This is how I've always leveled my dragons, even before the XP levels were raised. You'll have an adult in no time.

Yeah, I found this out yesterday. I posted about it in the Bug Report section because I'm hoping it's a bug. Here's the link to my thread if you would like to add a comment there. I'm just as mad as you. I used Alchemy Adventure to get my dragons to the next level when they were almost at the next level. I could usually achieve this with 1-4 games of AA. I tried it out yesterday and it took me 6 or 7 games to get my dragon to the next level when before the update I would've gotten them to the next level in 1 or 2. It's absolutely ridiculous if they did this on purpose. Alchemy Adventure and Eel Roast gave out more xp than they do now before they increased the xp they gave after they fixed being able to shoot fire pits to get xp. I'm planning on pming Brynjolf on Monday to ask him if this was intentional and if it was ask for an explanation for this. It's not really even worth playing those games right now with the ridicuously small amount of xp they give.

Neara... burned my subject...

I certainly hope you're right and it's just an accidental glitch. If it's intentional though, I'd say we have every right to be furious. I mean there's not any reason for these games to be nerfed unless they're trying to encourage, or rather force, us to spend money to buy gems and purchase the adult-up for our dragons.

I agree that there's no reason for them to be nerfed. They can't claim that they were being abused like they did with the fire pits because people put a lot of time and effort into playing those games in order to earn the xp. That's definitely not abusing the system.

Not only that, but...

It's impossible to "abuse" ER, as the exp stops after a certain level. There's no "I got to level 100 and got over 1k EXP!!".

Exactly. They already had a "cap" of sorts in place for ER so why decrease the amount of xp? This whole thing's just frustrating.

Update on messaging Brynjolf:

I messaged him today and he messaged me back and said that he would reach out to the team to see if this is a glitch or something they've added with the new update and he would let me know when new information became available. It's just the waiting game now. Hopefully we'll know something soon.

not only are there not enough words in the english language to express your outrage, but theres no words you can use that wouldnt get censored for the kiddys, lol

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

This is just....

If this was intentional, rather then a bug, it was a VERY bad idea! Like many others, I used AA and ER for exp for baby dragons, as well as teen dragons. Taking exp away from the trees, and from the fire pits I can understand, but from the MINIGAMES? They'd better be replacing them all-together with something that gives Bewilderbeast-sized exp if they're intentionally making the exp of the current minigames non-existant. I'm not using babies or teens in battle events, as I'm trying to get high enough scores for gems (since eggs might as well not exist with it being impossible to get them). Also not using them for quests, since I'm aiming for gems and runes since I'm not made of money.

I agree. If they intentionally nerfed AA and ER then we should get a minigame or something that gives us a reasonably good amount of xp(something that would make up for AA and ER being nerfed) and it shouldn't be something we have to wait hours for like stable quests and battle. Since they compensated us by increasing the xp AA and ER gave when they removed getting xp from fire pits, it would only be right that they comepensate us this time too.

And I thought I just didn't get the XP... I had a level 1 Nadder, did around 10 levels of Eel Roast (or Eel Blast, as it seems to be called now) which usually gets them to level 2, I stopped earlier because I didn't have time and wasn't sure if I actually got XP or not... looks like I did.

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

@AlexCheshireThunder: yeah that's a good way to level them up. Unless the game decides to lower the dragon's happiness and not giving it energy when I feed them eels for whatever reason.

The fastest way to level up any dragon is the battle events... Gold place gets you 500 or 750xp.  Use the dragon you normally battle with until the boat has about 700-1000 life points left... then quickly land and switch to your baby dragon before the battle ends. 

 

At first, it might be a little tricky to time it right... but it's not hard. Even if you end up with bronze, it's still worth doing. You can't earn that much XP in 2 minutes anywhere else. Even though I stop firing a little earlier than everybody else in order to switch dragons, I still earn gold place 99% of the time.

!!!BUG FIXES BEFORE CONTENT!!!

this shouldnt be the only good way to level up dragons though, i think the mini-games are a bit stupid and there should be more world content for us to use to level our dragons up but at least they helped get past the baby stage

 

also, bronze is not worth it, you have to wait two hours for each event and to do that only to get bronze is the equivilant of having a scooter slam against your ankles, not fun

I meant that if your priority is to level up a dragon, than switching them out during a few battles is going to be your best bet right now... There's a lot of "shoulds" about this game, I get that. But I'm just talking about what your actual options are. I mean, I don't know how skilled you are in battles... but it's fairly difficult to score low enough for bronze unless you're new/unexperienced or have issues with lag on your device. In which case, you're already scoring bronze.

 

As for "waiting" 2 hours... just do whatever you'd normally do for XP in between battles... or just log back in at battle times... lots of ppl do this. You don't have to "wait" around for 2 hours and do nothing...

i rarely get bronze, but even if your priority is to level up a dragon there should be other options that arent mini-games in between battle events

 

either way your still waiting for two hours, whether you do something else which gets you a horrendous amount of XP compared to battle events, especially after the last update, or just go off the game entirely, which yes, i do do that, your still waiting 2 hours, and even if you rarely get bronze its still the equivillent of a scooter being whacked against your ankles, its still waiting two hours for p!ss poor results and having to wait another two hours before you can try again to get better results

 

and besides, you shouldnt have to go off the game and wait 2 hours to go back on it in the first place, thats something you do on games like rise of berk, its not something you should have to do on a game like sod because theres nothing to do on the game while your waiting

Battles are a good way to level up dragons but the problems is I have 127 dragons to get to level 50. I liked using AA to get my dragon to the next level when they were almost at the next level because then if I sent them on a stable quest or did a battle with them they might be almost at the next level again and I could repeat the process of using AA to get them to the next level. I leveled up dragons pretty quickly doing that. That's why I'm so upset that AA and ER's xp have been severely decreased.

I have 30 dragons (if you count Toothless) to get to level 50, and I can't do the insane grind with just battles. Now if I had like a few dragons, and they all were good for battles, this would be possible. Unfortunatly, if you're aiming for certain prizes, it's just not a good idea. Plus, better exp comes from higher rankings, and with some dragons that's not going to happen even if you switch out. Without AA or ER to help out, it's a painful grind.

I could only ever play AA/ER maybe 3 times in a row before getting distracted, maybe that's why I prefer the quicker battle events. lol I'm usually online racing anyway.

 

I also don't have young dragons anymore and since I don't hatch duplicate breeds, this is less of an issue for me, but I hope they implement a better XP system soon for everyone. As of now, other than the few dragons I use in Dragon Tactics, I don't plan on raising any others to level 50, as I see no incentive in doing so. There should be some sort of benefit for all that work. Higher energy or something.

 

I'm more frustrated about them raising our viking levels to 50... there's nearly nowhere to earn viking XP. My UDT has been maxed for years and of course I have no quests. The only place to earn more than 10 viking xp is Dragon Tactics... and even that renders very little.

My only reason of leveling all my dragons to level 50 is just to say that I've done it, basically just to complete the "goal". XD

 

I agree. We need more ways to get viking xp. I wish they would add viking xp to the rewards you get from battle.

There shouldn't be one good way to level up dragons.

Congrats for getting gold place 99% of the time. Some of us don't enjoy having to compete against other players to earn xp. Any GOOD game has different methods available for players to earn xp. Evidently, SoD no longer wishes to be even mediocre.

Bad news everyone: Brynjolf pmed me today and told me the change was intentional. I pmed him back and asked if he could tell me why. I'm really hoping there's a good explanation for this because the way it is now they may as well just get rid of AA and ER because the crappy xp they give does not make them worthwhile to play.

I haven't been playing ER at all and I haven't been playing AA as often as I used to. I wait until I know I can get my dragon to the next level within 2 or 3 games because playing it 7+ times just to get a dragon to the next level is not my cup of tea. Ever since this was done, most of the time my dragons end up on the next level without me playing AA.

 

I hope we get an explanation too.

I've only played ER (why is it even called Eel Blast now?) twice since that update and didn't even try AA. ER is pretty okay at times as long as I get XP, but AA is just not my thing, I don't like it xD but I did use it to level up baby dragons at times before the update. But I've been playing less in general due to reasons that have nothing to do with the game so I haven't figured out how to level up my babies now, apart from my usual method, stable quests.

I like AA and ER but there does come a time when I've played it so many times that I'm like, "Well, definitley time to move on to something else." Of course, I like them less now that they've nerfed the xp.

 

Stable quests and switching to baby and teen dragons near the end of battle are the only 2 good ways left of leveling up baby and teen dragons if you don't have any quests.

I hope that it's to replace it with better stuff, and that if that's the case, that it's not locked behind some membership gate.If the reason's not good, well...there's going to be a good chunck of players leaving, I'm afraid.

Sadly...

I've seen such decisions in the past with other games and people tend to react negatively. Revenue from subscriptions/memberships decrease from cancellations and players in general just leave. This is why if one has a feature removed, they should have a new one almost immediatly. Sure, there can still be negative feedback, but it's better then nothing.

I was right when I expected a ridiculous explanation. Brynjolf messaged me and said that "the team wanted to encourage students to to explore more of the School grounds as there are still other exciting methods to raise dragons."(These are his exact words.) This explanation makes no sense. AA and ER were all we had to help us level up baby and teen dragons that we didn't have to wait hours for. Stable quests and battles are fine but you have to wait hours for them. With AA and ER, you could get baby and teen dragons raised quickly. I'm beyond frustrated right now. I just don't understand at all.

There's only so many quests, to "explore" the game with. Unless you count the bugged Scientific Theory quest, there's no other "repetitive" quests you can do. Stable quests don't count, as you're not running around the maps. With stable quests, you need more then one baby to have the baby-only quests work.

I think it's a thinly veiled attempt to either make us so frustrated we'll buy age up tickets or my theory on my thread was right and they're trying to get us to spend more time on the game by pushing us to play DT and other mini games that make your dragon lose energy. If they're trying to get us to spend more time on the game then they forgot you can't use baby and teen dragons in DT and they forgot to give us ways to level up baby and teen dragons that don't take forever. I don't like speaking out against them like this but with no good reason for them nerfing AA and ER, it sounds to me like they're playing dirty pool.

Who would spend $2-$5 just to age up their dragons? That's a complete waste. DT doesn't even offer that much exp, even in higher levels. It needs serious rebalance with the exp and the insane dodge rate of enemy npcs. Yeah, it's a waste to take away methods for baby/teen dragons. No one in their right mind's going to try the flight school method to level up a teen dragon, and most (including me) can't aim on FF to make it a worthwhile exp grind. Overall, it's a waste.

I agree. There are so many more things I'd rather spend my gems on than an age up ticket. In my opinion, it's a complete waste to buy one when you can just be patient and wait to until your dragon is the appropriate level to age them up.

 

I agree. The dodge rate of the npc's kills me.

 

I have a feeling that the more people find out that this was intentional, the more the admins are going to get flooded with pm's about it. I hope the devs take notice of how unhappy everyone is and decide to do something about it. It's very unlikely but we can hope.

There's a LOT of stuff that could have gem speed ups (more like waste ups) removed. Who would spend like 1-2 gems just to water a plant? There's no longer a need to refill a watering can then water the plants every time. That was painful.

It needs fixed. Badly. x_x

Yeah, and there's probably going to be quite a few cancelled memberships, like I mentioned earlier.

Unhappy doesn't even begin to describe what I'm feeling upon finding out that this was intentional and for such a bull s#!t reason. More like angry, infuriated, outraged, livid, furious, enraged and outrighted pi$$ed the +#&k off. I've got half a mind to send them a multi-page long email calling them everything but a child of God because this is just... it's unbelievable. It's a disservice to us all and just it's...

Oh that is some grade A BULL S#!T!!!!! No there are NOT other methods to raise our dragons! This is absolutely outrageous! I am ready to quit the game at this point because I have had enough of this! I am so angry right now I can't even see straight! As if their having pulled this s#!t on us wasn't bad enough they gave us such a non-answer that it makes me want to call these idiots and give them an earful! I am absolutely livid right now!

I agree. Those "other exciting methods" don't even begin to cover what AA and ER gave out. I mean stable quests and battles do but you have to wait hours for them. I just don't understand their thinking on this.

Drums R Round. Pi R Cubed... Because the volume of pi is so good

You can send your dragons out on Stable Quests, there are ones for all different ages, classes, and types of dragons.  Usually the quests average about the following:  100 Dragon XP, 400 DXP, 800 DXP, 1000 DXP, and 2000 DXP.  These take real time to complete, so you can send them out on quests, come back on later in the day (because they can be between 15 minutes and 24 hours depending on the number of rewards) and see your progress.  This is the biggest way I earn XP for multiple dragons because you can send up to 4 dragons on the same quest and they will receive the rewarded Dragon XP for each dragon on the quest.  Some quests have only 3 or 2 dragons for a quest.  And you can have up to 6 quest going on at a time, if you have toothless and are a member.  Otherwise, non-members can do 4 quests at a time.

 

The second biggest thing about quests is they are a chance at completion; meaning, with a certain arrange of dragons you may have a 75% chance of having a successful quest.  Whereas if you try to match the requirements for the quest (age, dragon class, type of dragon) with what the quest wants, your percentage chance to complete goes up.  I have failed a couple 99% chances to win over the course of time I have been using quests since they came out, but have never failed a 100% chance to win quest.  (I bring that up because if you search for the game XCOM and look at the memes for the chances to hit a target, you could be standing right next to your opponent, flanking shot, 99% chance to hit... And Miss.  Then from several yards away, shooting into full cover, with an opponent that has very good defense, only have 30% chance to hit and 10% to crit... Hit the target and get a crit.  I have even missed a couple 100% chances to hit in that game... Ikr... Not possible, but with RNG and XCOM, anything is possible.)

 

This has stayed the most consistent way of leveling up my dragons through any update or patch to SoD.  Plus, you can sneak a few lower level dragons on the quests that have 1000+ DXP and enough of your other dragons to make it a good enough percentage to win the quest.

 

On every quest, you will get gold, Dragon XP, and Viking XP.  There are some quests that have Gem Boxes and Mystery Reward boxes, but for me, seems like those only appear if you have done several quests recently for a few days.  But I may be wrong about that.

 

If they do not change back to the way you used to earn Dragon XP, might try doing quests in the future.  Racing still gives the same amount of DXP at the end of a race, but that is only if your dragon can fly.  Otherwise, your last resort could be doing quests with your dragon.  Right before the quests ends, switch to the dragon you want to earn the XP with and the XP will be rewarded to that dragon.  You can track your quest progression in your journal so you can be sure when to switch your dragon.

 

Hope this helps

The only problem is...

You need to have the right dragons for each quest, and the right amount. Not everyone has enough babies for the baby-only quests (there's 2-3 of them that need FOUR babies). Plus, with new players, this is VERY difficult, because they may not be able to get high enough scores in battles for the tiny chance of winning an egg, or don't have the time to grind for sheep in races for a free stable, and so don't have the space.

If you wanted, you could send just 1 dragon on a quest.  You can have up to 2, 3, or 4, but you need at least one to complete a quest.  The more dragons you have the better the chance to win the quest.  Even if you don't win a quest, you still get Viking XP, gold, and Dragon XP.

 

When I first started out, I failed a ton of quests, but still got dragon XP.  It just takes time, but once you are able to do multiple quests, then it goes very fast.

 

Then there's the chance of getting Gem boxes, a farm item, or Mystery box item.

 

If you have enough UDT points, I thought there was a stable for UDT points.

 

There are multiple quests that you have to get dragons with the quest.  But even then, if you constantly get on each day, you will eventually have enough gems to get a dragon.  This is how I bought the Icestorm Expansion pack when it first came out, some gear, and a couple of dragons.

 

There are several ways to do things in SoD.  All it takes is enough time, remembering to keep up with it, and work.

 

You can save enough gems to buy eggs and stables.

I know about stable quests and have been using them to help level up my dragons since the max dragon level was increased to level 50. The problem is that I had a certain method I used to level up my dragons that included AA and ER(mostly AA) and I could level them up pretty quickly using this method. I'd send my dragons on a stable quest or do a battle with them and if they were almost at the next level I would play a few games of AA, usually 1 - 4, and get them to the next level. Then I'd repeat that process. I haven't been able to do this since they nerfed AA and ER and it's really hindering my progress.

 

Another thing I thought of recently is that there's little to no incentive for players to get a Speed Stinger or broadwing Terrible Terror now, other than the fact of just having one. You can't really do anything with SSs or broadwing TTs now so what's the point? Before they nerfed AA and ER, you could spend some time with your SS or broadwing TT by playing ER with them. Now you can't. What's the point of wasting gems on an egg if all you're going to do is send the dragon on stable quests to level them up and that's it? You never get to see the dragon you spent gems on that way. Since I've been aiming for a male and female titan of each species as well as a dragon for each paint/skin, I might eventually get some titan SSs but they will probably be the very last ones I get if something doesn't change. I'm not fond of the idea that I wouldn't get to spend time with them at all.

 

Thanks for your suggestions though. I know you're trying to help.
