Now I remember why I stopped playing...

I originally started playing the game back in 2015, and I was really addicted to it. The thought of being able to train dragons from one of my favourite movie franchises ever made me really want to get into this game. However, after about a year or two, I stopped playing altogether.

 

The fun soon comes to an end when you realise just how broken this game is. For ages I put so much effort into this game and tried to ingore all of the connection errors, quest errors, farm bugs and just have hope that they will get fixed in the future. I think that's why I quit playing for a while, because the bugs became way too much to deal with and I wanted to just wait until the game was 'fixed'.

 

I came back in 2019, having hope that things had changed. The loading times are way quicker I guess and there are more features, quests, expansions and dragons but that's pretty much it. I am still encountering the same bugs I experienced back in 2015 (and to others, upon the game's release). I am fed up of having to restart my game 5 times within 10 minutes of playing. I am fed up with it continuously logging me out during a particular quest, leading me to have to start that quest all over. I am fed up with the chat system and how I barely speak to anyone because of it. I hate going to the farm because it is pretty much guaranteed that I will have to restart the game at some point whether it be stuck seed bags or controls freezing upon walking out of my farm or the 'your process failed to sync with our server' error.

 

I REALLY want to like this game and play it daily to get the most out of it, but I am struggling to ignore all of these issues to the point where I avoid certain places to avoid running into bugs. THAT is terrible game design, I'm sorry. I understand that making games is hard and coding is hard but PLEASE make fixing these bugs a top priority. When you're losing players because the bugs are becoming way too much to handle, that really isn't a good thing.

 

I appreciate everything the developers have done to make the game the best it can be, but please, fix this.

Stormy fetch the subject!

I can relate, I started playing in 2013 and loved this game, played it all the time. But around 2015 I stopped playing and then continued to play on and off for short periods of time until this year (Watching the Hidden World brought me back). I don't get connection issues too often but I have experienced other glitches. An example being the other day I tried to get rewards from the job board in the farm (10 eels for gold) but everytime I selected it, after I closed it I got no reward and after checking the job board again it was still there and wouldn't let me get rewarded.  I've also had the same seed bag problems with planting crops. As for the chat I don't even bother to use it anymore. Being a long time player of the game I would love to see some improvements.

no gold after selecting a completed job from job board

For what it's worth - I found the way around the "no gold for completed job" bug was to exit the game then go back in by clicking the farm icon. The reward would then show up.  I had no problems with the job board or the gold showing up until after this latest update.  If they get this game working again - currently I can't log in and it appears that it is being worked on - I hope this gets fixed.

Garenth stole my subject

I was playing since practically the beginning - can't remember when that was. I even have a yearly membership. You'd think they'd focus more on the bugs than the expansions! I barely play anymore nad just let my gems pile up each month so I can save them for later. I figure maybe I'll go in and binge spend on something special, but the game won't even let me log in without the password that you get when you reset it! I can't even use MY password! Ugh, so annoying

Hi! :)

They also don't do many updates anymore. They used to have a new dragon every Friday but then the game was so buggy people requested they work on fixing that instead. They then went and fixed a couple of animations but they started to update less and less that's when I stopped because a) I didn't have anymore quests to do b) the rewards were no longer rewarding c) the bugs stayed mostly the same with a few fixes here and there d) there was a disconnect from the game from not being able to truly interact with the dragons (Wild Skies was probably the best HTTYD game that I played so far).

Yeah, well... I cannot truly

Yeah, well... I cannot truly relate to this, cause I’am very rarely experiencing bugs and they are never the important ones.

But, before you ask why I came here, let me tell about the ones I do encounter.

 

I started to play somewhere around 2013 maybe 14. As I didn’t knew English back then, playing the game was hard for me and after half of a year I quitted.

Came back in 2016, finally being able to play and interact with others. I played till now. But this days, in 2019 I’m thinking of retirement.

Why?

 

Firstly some bugs.

The chat - something everyone has mentioned; I don’t bother with trying to talk to anyone, I play MMO off most of the tome cause of that.

 

Random crashing of game. Seriously, they are weeks when everything’s fine, and then one day the game can crash several times, or even not let me to log in.

 

When teleporting to visit a friend, who’s on the same map that me, the selection screen where I click ‚visit’ never goes off my sight, so I can walk normally, but talking to anyone, flying and thing’s like that are impossible.

 

Everyday I check the Forum, to see what problem’s people encounter in SoD and try to help; but as I look at it, the pile of bygs and glitches is just growing and growing.

 

SoD admins, before you elease a new expansion, or any other update, fix those glitches that I and the other players have mentioned. Even If  I still quit, maybe some other of those people will stay, when the game ix fixed and playable.

Sadly similar experience here. I started played more recently than you, not sure how long exactly but more than a year ago. Now I can barely start the game before it throws me out again. I had hoped it would become better after the last update but no.

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)
This is my dragon cave account.

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

As now I look at SoD, It

As now I look at SoD, It seems to me like the admins focused on getting rid of hackers and stuff from the store, instead of fixing this pile of bugs...

Yes!!

So I too joined this game a long time ago!! I joined the forum after I played the game but even then, I’ve been on the forum for over 5 years. I haven’t logged in for two years into this account until now, I stopped playing the game for a very similar reason to you. And honestly at the time, the new constant dragon releases were getting tiring. I just logged in to agree with this post because the game hasn’t changed that much and you’d think it would have.

tldr; SoD has always been a mess and I hope they fix it

Unfortunately, this is the case. School of Dragons as a game had a ton of potential, but now it just feels like an abandoned husk full of promises of what could have been. I haven't logged in for a while, and don't plan to. SoD is the buggiest game I've ever played, had hacker issues for far longer than any game managed by a company like Jump Start should have had, and has a painfully annoying chat filter to boot which will mute you for not managing to bypass its strict whitelist. On top of that, I feel like they don't really have many updates either, at least updates that don't result in you needing to buy something. I understand that they need money, but the game has always been a mess of bugs and has been for years. Sorry, but most people will not want to buy a broken product.

 

Anyone who has stuck with this game for its life cycle and continues to pay truly has the patience of a saint. I salute you, but also question your state of mind at the same time.

 

I do hope one day, someone with enough power within the staff team will step up and get everyone to fix their bugs, perhaps update graphics, and start actively advertising the game. But, at this rate, it feels like this is simply wishful thinking.

I know that you guys might be experiencing financial difficulties right now, and I know it might be hard to get yourselves off of your feet. But this game is a mess. I really want to believe that the developers are not at fault for this--I don't think any videogame developer with a real passion for their trade would allow this in normal circumstances. Maybe what I'm asking for is too much for you, your team, or your budget. If so, I'd really love if you guys just focused your manpower onto fixing bugs in SOD, then try selling it to some other company.

 

Your game had a really great concept that was honestly original. The expansions are great. The story is nice. The dragons look cool. Everyone's main gripe is that everything is just broken. So, please. Whatever you need to do, please do it, if it's gonna help this game. People liked to play this game. And it would be wonderful to play it again without bugs.

 

Heck, at this point, if you need to re-make the game from scratch and reset our progress, I don't care. Just make it good.

Agree

Couldn’t have said it better myself tbh. It’s hard to see this game seeing a significant improvement, especially since I don’t think it’s all that active anymore, and with not many people willing to spend money on a broken game I can’t imagine it’s well funded.

Anyone who’s still around really has a lot of patience lolol.

Also your signature, I love it hsjsjshshs

Thanks! And yeah.

I don't mean to come off as harsh either, but this is the reality of SoD. I highly doubt the developers are at fault--probably someone else who is calling the shots is. As far as we know, the devs might be just as disappointed about the game as we are.
