It seems like every time I've been in a server where the majority of players are aiming for the boat from the healing points, that we don't win anymore. Is there something to this? Did they change something about battle events? Or is it just coincidence, and the lack of damage being done to ships is some other issue? I'm mostly upset at the losses since battle events are one of my main ways of getting candy for this event, and I'm nervous that I might not get enough by the end...

I feel like I should note, before literally anyone asks: yes, I am using a Scauldron. I had been saving gems to get one for a long while. However, ever since the recent update (which fixed the sync errors, thankfully) I've been having a lot of problems regardless. 

 

Haven't seen anyone else mention this, so I thought I'd see if anyone else experienced similar. Might just be my bad luck, though!

Hi, you can call me Saturn. I'm a college student who has been spending a bit too much of their free time tearing up the tracks in Thunder Run Racing. I'm an INFP, polytheistic, and I'm also on the autism spectrum. I talk a lot, and I'm not the best at taking jokes, but I guess that people always have room to improve!
 
A few fun facts about me in no particular order:

1. I'm a huge music nerd!

2. I adore Ghost-type Pokemon.

3. I eat a lot of peanut butter despite having a (minor) allergy to it.

4. I ardently refuse to wear blue during April. (#RedInstead)

5. I was born 2045 years after the assassination of Julius Caesar.

 

In-game, for the most part, you'll either find me fishing, racing, or partaking in battle events. I've been working on collecting Titan Runes, now, but when I'm not refreshing my Stable Missions every ten minutes, I'm racing.

And I'm pretty good at it, too: you can find my comprehensive list of Singleplayer TRR racing times here. Or you can find me in multiplayer and race me yourself. Just know that I will forever remember your name if you are the kind of person to use a speed boost at the very end of a race. It won't kill you to get second place, sweetheart. Some of us are raised on table scraps.
 
Finally, on a bit of a lighter note, I'd like to add that I'm always looking for new friends and racers who will keep me on my toes. If anyone would like to add me, just message me for my friend code!

There's more health...

There just seem to be less people there sometimes, either that or they get logged out at the start. I myself have not had a problem with firing from the regen points.

My luck is bad too, so we're in the same boat... Or firing at it.

Flightingale the Steaming Stormswallower

Backstory: Flightingale never used to be a dragon. She used to be a farmer's slave, beaten, bruised, toiling away in the heat of midday. One night, she was standing by her window looking out at the moonlit mountains, when she heard a small scratching in her tiny room. She turned to see and sitting on her bed, looking quite pleased with itself, was a baby Stormswallow. Of course she was frightened, but it soon became apparent that it wouldn't hurt her. It leapt down to the floor and ran to the window, glancing from her to the window and back. She opened the window for it but it just stood there, looking at her sadly. She realised it couldn't fly, and in sympathy she picked it up, crept down stairs and quietly let herself out. Putting the dragon down she said; 'go on, young one, be free like I wish I could be.' It  started to scamper off but then it stopped and turned back. She waved it off and began to make her way back to the house, then pain blossomed in her shoulder. The young dragon had scratched her.  but it wasn't a bad pain, it spread through her like fire, kindling a dragons spark in her. That night Flightingale flew free as a dragon.

 

Ka Ledasio, the skradder, by the amazing Speedyleaf.

Backstory: She is the mysterious leader of the mysterious Whitetalons, a group of dragons who all have the middle claw of their right foot white. She is feared among people, respected among dragons. Like a shadow upon a shadow she soars through the night, like a phantom of fleetness she swoops through the day. Any who meet her bow to get regalness, her strong will, her quick, clever eyes. Like a ghost of a story she flits on the edge of memory, always there, somewhere, yet just out of reach like a dream. She saw Flightingale's first flight, the young Stormswallower grow, Gabryall's loneliness broken. She was there for them all, leading in dreams, thoughts, small whispered words in their ears. Is she real? Or is she just a fantasy? Flying at the edge of minds. Maybe you will meet her, maybe you won't, who know but her and Whitetalons. Maybe, just maybe, she is with you now.
