I am experiencing difficulty connected to School of Dragons. While I can get past the login screen, I can not pass the Viking Selection screen without getting the message, "Server call timed out. Please try again later." I know of one other person having this issue, but I am unsure if it is happening on any other players' ends.

 

I am currently on the Desktop Version of SOD.

Hi! I'm Brynhildd! So, how in the world did I get here, on Berk? Well, let me tell you.

I lived on an island far west of Berk. We didn't have a Viking status of dragon trainers, nor beserkers. We were just a village who was out to survive. Although the occasional killing of a dragon happened, it was never something the tribe focused on, since most attacks from them were aimed at Berk. We were more into the trading business; finding treasures and all of that. It was one of my favorite things to do, at least. I'd always go out on my little canoe to a smaller, uninhabited island to search for rocks, gems, anything that looked cool that I could pick up. On those deserted islands, I'd find the occasional smaller dragon, like Terrible Terrors and even Smothering Smokebreaths. Even though they'd steal my stuff sometimes, and even make me feel like I want to kill them, I don't. That's because I understood that they were just animals trying to live. I don't think my tribe really understood that.

I was a teenager now, and I was able to go farther places now. But, that led to recklessness and stupidity. It wasn't my fault that it's an occupational hazard to seek danger. I went out during a storm trying to find somewhere to go. But once I got out there, the fog thickened and a storm brewed. I was stuck, lost with no sense of direction. Luckily Toothless and Hiccup were there to save the day. They led me back to Berk for some food and water, and it was there that I met a whole lot more dragons than I've ever seen! They were working with the Vikings, and it clicked into my head. I wanted to be like them. I wanted to be a dragon trainer. So, I enrolled in the School of Dragons, where I got and raised my very own dragon.

Evergreen | Monstrous Nightmare

I enrolled in the School of Dragons, so I was going to need a dragon to begin my training. Like all of the other new students, I went to The Hatchery to receive a dragon egg to hatch. Gobber had given me a personality test to determine which dragon would be best for me. I had gotten Monstrous Nightmare. At first, I was doubtful of that choice, thinking that didn't fit me at all. But, Gobber insisted that that was the one who fit me. He said I could choose another, but I didn't want to make the wrong decision. So, I got Evergreen. I went on the school missions offered for Evergreen and I while also learning to raise my dragon. I was still doubtful of Evergreen though. He was different though, very calm, not the fire-like personality of the usual Monstrous Nightmare.

I raised Evergreen until he was an adult. With that, I learned the value of him and how he actually was one of my best friends. We raced, explored and even more and now we're to the point of becoming a Titan Wing. We're working hard now and learning even more. One big thing I learned though, it doesn't matter the dragon you get, anyone can be like you and your friend.

Turtle | Sand Wraith

Wow! How long had it been by now... let's see... probably 2-3 years I'd been at The School of Dragons by now? Evergreen was such a big dragon now and I gained friendships with some other dragons by now. Adventures galore still awaited though amongst all of the many, many others that had happened.
 
Tons of dragon species are being discovered, and the discovery of the Sand Wraith came! It was all the rage when eggs were being shipped to the school by Trader Johan. It seemed as though everyone wanted their hands on one, and so did I. I thought it would be cool. So, I got my lovely little guy and called him Turtle for the way his green spots against his black body resembled that of the animal.
 
Time went on but I noticed something throughout the school. Blotches of black paint surrounded the island and I saw Sand Wraiths all painted up in black. "Hey, look at my Night Fury!" they all seemed to chant. I looked at Turtle. I didn't paint him at all, yet I still felt compelled to call him a Night Fury. Oh, that wretched Bandwagon I hopped on. For a while, I called him that until I started seeing the light and error; he's a Sand Wraith and proud! Come to realize, the natural color of my Sand Wraith wasn't even the black! Sometimes, animals desire companionship, and Turtle I believe felt the need to fit in by changing his color. But, when he realized he had me, well his true colors shone! I'm glad he's not trying to use his camouflage anymore to disguise himself as a Night Fury.

I usually can't get even to the login screen before a timeout.

       Hello everyone! My name is Sigridd, fellow Viking of Berk and trainer of dragons. I attend the School of Dragons to learn the history of dragons and how to train them, using "The Scientific Method." I love to make new friends at the school, whether Viking or dragon. All of us together can have a new adventure and learning experience. 

       The world of dragons just keeps growing. After years of being at war with this species, it seems now that the Archipelago is centered around these reptilian creatures. Every day, we can learn something new about them. I make it my goal to learn about dragons, using techniques and information to bond with them. Each dragon is different and requires different care patterns. I've learned a lot on my journey thus far, but I still have so much to learn. I hope to become a great dragon rider, just like Hiccup Haddock III and the rest of the Dragon Riders.

The Dragon Racers is a clan dedicated to the art of dragon racing in Berk. This community is very welcoming and very passionate about the traditions of the school and Berk's community. The Dragon Racers is one of the top clans on the leaderboard, and they are very deserving of their spot. So much has been put into this clan; the leaders and elders have worked very hard to create a welcoming and fun community that everyone can enjoy, even if you're not in the clan. They wanted to create a message; that if a fellow Viking sees the Dragon Racers logo, they can associate it with positive feelings. Happiness, friendship, and leadership. It means so much to see this logo, and it means so much to me to see this logo every time I open SoD. Thank you!

I'm using the desktop version and this rarely happens to me, if ever.

I wonder what's causing this for some people?
