Release dragons option

I doubt we'll ever get the option to get gems back for dragons, but it would atleast be nice to have the option to release them and free up some stable space. I have quite a few I don't want, some of which are duplicates I got because of a bug, and would love to be able to release them and free up some much needed stable space. I'm sure other players would like this option too.

It's what I said, I DON'T CARE ANYMORE if they don't give us even 50 gems to free a dragon, I just want to REMOVE dragons that I don't like or that is repeated.
I have a many that I no want to have for give way to those that is in next.

My personal opinion

I think they are scared of having a lot of players delete dragon on accident or just change their mind and flooding support with emails about recovering dragons. I know a lot of players here are mature enough to understand the consequences but a lot of kids don't.

Obviously, you have to think about what dragon you want be sure to eliminate.
And I think that another fear could be if you get hacked, if the hacker ends up deleting all the dragons regardless if you later recover your account, you would not be able to report all the dragons that be eliminated. I mean...

To solve the accidental release problem, the devs could just put up a couple prompts that goes "are you sure you want to release the dragon", "if you release this dragon you cannot get it back", etc to make sure people understand. Nobody, not even kids, could do it accidentally then.

 

As for hackers, they can delete your viking. Why would they bother deleting each of your dragons individually when they could just delete your viking?

I want cheesecake!!

I understand. I don't want the Armorwing AT ALL. A lot of these free dragons that you don't want sucks but you just have to deal with it. You might click or tap on the wrong dragon you don't want anymore and you message the devs to get your dragon back. If you have an egg that you don't want, don't hatch it.  Only thing you can do is do battles and hope you get a free stable. Ohhh, I just thought of this! On the next event they can give out a free stable!! You have to work for it of course. It can just be a boulder stable or whatever that they have in the store already. Or something that'll match the event like they did for Dreadfall. Again, its a free stable for the event ONLY! It'll never be in the stores. Just get enough cookies/coin to get it. It would be great to put my dragons in a cooler stable.  Pretty sure they don't have a Snoggletog stable. Seeing the groncicle, snow wraith, any dragon that prefers living in the cold, to fly around the stable (like the flightmare in the dreadfall stable) would be cool! What do y'all think of that idea?

That would be great.

Hello!

Thank you for the suggestion, I have seen multiple other users note that this is a feature that they would want to see within the game. I've gone ahead and made a note about this so I can bring it up to the team in the near future!

 

Best,

Sunny Sage

Hey there!

Hi there,

 

Thanks for the suggestion! This is something that comes up in team discussions from time to time when we ask how we can improve the dragon training experience in our game. As someone else mentioned, yes, offering the option to release dragons would be a total nightmare for the customer support team. No amount of warnings or confirmations will stop players from deleting a dragon and then sending a ticket asking to restore it because they regretted doing it.

 

For reference, at the end of the Night Light expansion you're asked to select either Dart, Ruffrunner, or Pouncer to keep as your companion. It's a simple task, just pick the one you want. During the first Summarhildr when the event was first going on, we were absolutely flooded with tickets because players said they picked the wrong Night Light and want one of the others instead. Even after the event ended and it was turned into an expansion, we still get several tickets a week about it. We look at this every time we think about letting people delete dragons, and we just can't risk the sheer volume of requests and angry players for letting them delete their own dragons.

 

Now, that's not to say that we're leaving it as-is. Early on when I joined, I proposed a new sorting system which allowed you to keep your "favorited" dragons at the top, and then sort the rest of your dragons by name, type, stable, and so on. This would also enable you the option to "hide" dragons you don't want to see in your main list of dragons, and only show them by opting to show the hidden dragons.

 

There are other, more pressing issues we're trying to address first, but this is something I've really wanted to do to help make the overall dragon collecting part of our game a better experience (maybe even selfishly, being a dragon collector myself!). There's no ETA on this and there's no telling when we'll be able to slot it into our production schedule alongside the events, but I'm confident it'll be sometime soon since we recently brought it back up.

 

Thanks again for the suggestion!

I can definitely see why letting people delete the dragons would be a problem, and I'd definitely be all for the sorting system you suggested, especially the hiding part. I've got lots of dragons, some of whom I'm happy with in terms of their level, etc and some I'm not. It's a pain to have to manually sort through the ones I'm happy with and the ones I want to work on, and would be much easier with the hide option.

 

I'd like to see that, and the other stuff you mentioned, get added to the game someday. Either way, thank you for your response. It's nice to be heard. (:

Possible idea scratch

After some thinking i got this rough idea: let's say, in Dragon Island (or somewhere else) there would be a "wild dragons cave", where players could leave unwanted dragons. Later they could re-visit location, and get dragons back (any moment or with some cooldown). That might solve issue, in case player change their mind.

 

Edit: from technical perspective it's just a remote, isolated dragon stables in wilderness. Maybe, to prevent some "curious minds" from abusing make 4 slots available by default, with option to expand it with gems.

Thanks!

I like that idea too! It might be a happy medium between releasing dragons and still having access to them. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll bring it up to the team and see what they think.

Kinda confused with the night light expansion

The thing is, when the official night light expansion came out, something weird happened when I finished it. I already had baby pouncer and I took ruffrunner as my choosen one.
However, when I adult aged up pouncer I looked in my backpack and it showed ANOTHER adult age up.
So, does the expansion adult age up any night light you have and if so, if I get dart, can I adult age her up with normal age ups?

Once you finish the NL expansion you unlock the ability to make the NLs adults which means you can make any NLs you already had and any future ones you buy adults if you wish. You don't have to use age ups if you don't want to though. You can get them to level 10 and then take them to the hatchery and make them an adult like you do any other dragon.

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

What if instead of releasing the dragons, we release the eggs?, I say, to avoid a repetition. I have eggs that I don't want to hatch because I already have that dragon at least 3 times.
