I figured I could throw in some suggestions? (;u; )

Note: Don't "It's not gonna be as good as the tournament itself! Why bother?!" me. I'm merely here to throw around some ideas. It's not gonna be the same as your racing event, and I can't hope it'll ever be as big.

 

So basically the ideas I'm throwing in here are mostly Clan-directed that SOD may perhaps use, that's both for forums and in-game.

 

Clan month - SOD should make a clan month where it celebrates clanship.

 

In-game

  1. Fishing - Can be "The most fish" caught, "The most salmon caught", "The biggest fish caught", "The most eels caught", you get the idea. The system is there, all we need is a way the game can count fish being fished per clan.
  2. Farming - Same idea with fishing. I do wish we can farm crops that would have varying sizes. "Biggest pumpkin grown" sounds like a fun clan achievement.
  3. Flight club: flight suit - Looks like SOD would impliment a flight suit feature soon in flight club. Why not make a clan competition off it? 
  4. Flight club: Gliding - Same concept, but with your dragons losing their abilities to fly!  Though I think speed stingers dominate this type of flight club gameplay?

 

Forums

  1. Clan cheer - I'd like a competition where clans are given the chance to show off their group. It could be from making a video featuring their clan and how proud they are in it. Poster-making contests. Cheers and music. Poetry and writing. Anything you can think of!
  2. Clan involvement in forums - I don't want that clans are only an "in-game" thing. It'd be nice if I see clans being very active in here, and that the "Best" clan is not only the one that has a lot of good racers. It'd be nice to see clans dedicated to crafts and music, to guiding newbies in-game as well as in forums, news, specific dragon species, heck anything under the sun.  
  3. Admins/ Moderators being more active in the forum - I'd apply this to everything, and not just clan-forum-related things. It'd be nice to see more involvement from the admins here in the forums to make it more fun. During friendship event, there were admins that presented "HTTYD DIY crafts", and I really loved those. There was also the screenshot event, and I quite like it as well. They should make more of such events here in the forums.

Meef!

Ooh I also forgot! For the flight suit and flight club thing.

They could make a mix between thunderrun racing and the hobgobbler expansion. I remember there were steam vents when you glide through the flight suit course. Why not make a 6-man flight suit racing course where players travel over vents?

That...

That would be fun, but I remember a lot of people saying they had some troubles getting to each vent, idk if their controls were just messed or they didn't know where to turn in time or something, but.. Idk, if they could figure out how to make tracks like that would be sick!

I personally like all of these ideas alot! Especially since I haven't been able to partake in CoTC in recent years due to my current laptop being unable to let me race properly (I can't dive and turn at the same time. Which is a LOT more of a handicap than you might think.)

 

Some of these ideas remind me of a competition they hosted a few years ago, actually! They hosted an Eel Roast competition to see who could get the most points in the Eel Roast minigame.

Hai.

Welcome to my signature.

Here's some stuff 'bout me.

I am a girl.

I'm a Christian.

I like the color Blue/teal.

My favorite dragon class is Boulder Class.

 my main dragon(s) are a Screaming Death named Odin, and a Skrill named Jayfeather.

I love Doctor Who, Avatar the Last Airbender, Chuck, Psych, Harry Potter, Pokemon, G.I. Joe, and other nerd-y things.

My favorite Httyd dragons whose names start with the letter s are Screaming Deaths, Shivertooths, Skrills, Scauldrons, Smothering Smokebreaths, Snafflefangs, Shovelhelms, Sword Stealers, Snifflehunches (+Sneezelhunches) and Seashockers! (that's alot!)

And I am usually friendly :D (I mean, I try, at least.)

In-game name is: IIicedragonII (No, not lice dragon. Those are capital i's not l's. And you simply pronounce it as "Ice dragon" x'D)

Friend code: hmm.. P.M. me if you want it. Can't take any chances o3o

And I'm a proud member of The Phantom Lords! (ROAAAAAAAAR!)

I'll probably post some bios about my dragons, but I'm too lazy to do it right now if ever.

SPACE BUTTON

In order to dive/go up and urn at same time, let go of space buuton. BTW this only slows speed if you have let go of the space button for a couple seconds. If this does not work idk what to do.

~~~~~~~~~  About Me In-Game  ~~~~~~~~~

 

I have been playing since winter of 2013, almost the time the game came out, I was a little kid then, and still love the game from long-ago memories. I made my main account under the name "StormySavage" in May of 2018. I am called "Stormy", or Marshmallow (Marshy for short) by my friends because we all have food nicknames XD. I have been racing competitively in Thunder Run Racing since winter of 2019, and can say that TRR is my favorite minigame. I have completed all the DT levels, and gotten all the tier three Bewilderbeast armor, and the best weapons, so I am mostly retired from DT. I am a UDT, and have lots of dragons and trophies. I have participated in all the Dreadfall, Snogletogg, and Thawfest events (no matter how buggy xD), and actively do battle events. I am the proud Leader and Founder of Savage Nation, High Voltage, and Broken Glass Kids.
