I know there's already at least one thread about this but I always feel bad constantly bumping someone else's thread and besides there's only been 2 people reply on it- me and the OP.

I'm still experiencing game crashes after every 1 or 2 races in TRR. Sometimes I don't even get to race before the game crashes. There are times that I just load into Thunder Run and then the game will crash. Is anyone else still experiencing this? I'm playing on the download version on pc. Is there anyone who also uses the download version that is experiencing this that has tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game? I tend to get annoyed having to uninstall and reinstall over every little problem and it's especially annoying if doing that doesn't fix the issue so I wanted to know if anyone else had tried that before I try it. This problem has been happening for a week now. I really wish it would get fixed. As someone who absolutely loves TRR this issue is a big problem. I miss being able to race so much.

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.

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 (I still have around a few episodes to go) 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)

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

Ever since SoD decided to make the game downloadable, it had tons of crashes which makes it unplayable. I wish they'd bring back the browser-type of game, where we can log in in google chrome or other browsers, its actually less buggy.

The game is actually less buggy for me on the download version. The only time I usually experiences lots of glitches is when a new update comes out.

 

I don't think they'll bring back the browser version. I'm pretty sure the reason they discontinued the browser version was because browsers were dropping support of unity web player left and right. There aren't very many browsers left that still support unity web player so they decided to discontinue the browser version.

Tomorrow will have been 2 weeks that this has been happening. Can we expect a fix for this anytime soon? I did noticed a small improvement today, unless I just got lucky, as I got to race until my level 17 dragon's energy was depleted before it crashed. I'm grateful for that, however, Thunder Run shouldn't crash at all so I'd really like it fixed completely. I'm not fond of the idea of having to constantly reload the game after a few races. I race /a lot/ so this would quickly become annoying for me. Someone, please tell me that this is going to be fixed soon.

 

Edit: Disregard what I said about the small improvement. I decided to test whether it had improved or I just got lucky by going back in game and racing again. Unfortunately it crashed after 1 race so that means the previous time I just got lucky. Well, there go my hopes that things are slowly improving. Admins, please notice this and respond. I'm tired of not being able to race properly. After almost 2 weeks of this this has become rather discouraging.

It's now been 2 weeks that this has been happening. It's completely unfair that we haven't been updated at all about this issue. It really feels as though it's being ignored because it's not affecting everyone. Just because this is an issue that not everyone is experiencing doesn't mean that it shouldn't be fixed or that those of us who are experiencing it should have to wait until the next major update before it's fixed. Racing is something a lot of people do on a daily basis and those of us that are experiencing this issue can't race because of this. This really needs to be fixed soon and we should be given a /very/ detailed update as to where everything stands regarding this issue.(like how long it should be before it's fixed, ect) At this point I'd be good with the game being shut down for a few days just so Thunder Run could be fixed.

 

Edit: Before anyone asks, I thought I should add that I haven't tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game yet. I honestly see no point in doing that. Multiple people are experiecing this problem so it's obviously not a problem that uninstalling and reinstalling would help.

 

Edit 2: Sorry for all the edits but I wanted to add one more thing. I'm sorry if I'm coming across as really salty about this or if I seem rude. That's not my intention. I'm just really confused about why this hasn't been fixed yet. Most of the other problems associated with the update have been fixed so it's rather confusing and discouraging that this hasn't been fixed as well. Even a simple "We're aware that this is still occurring and can assure you it will be fixed shortly" would be better than no communication or acknowledgement at all.

I finally broke and uninstalled and reinstalled the game to see if it would help. My suspicions were correct: it did not help. I really hope this is fixed soon and we don't have to wait until the next major update for a fix. I'm also still experiencing lots of lag in racing when I test it to see if it's been fixed and in other places in the game such as the School and Berk.

This has now been happening for 3 weeks 2 days. This is getting utterly ridiculous. I'm trying very hard to be patient but it's been almost a month since Thunder Run has had these issues. It not only crashes but it lags really bad as well. Can't we /please/ be updated as to where this stands? This /needs/ to be fixed soon. It's not fair that there are a lot of players who can't race because Thunder Run keeps crashing.

"Subject? It's r- Flash, STOP eating my subject!"- Raineir

I noticed it's been happening more since the recent update. In fact, it happened just a minute ago on one of my side vikings.

About Me (in real life):

 

. Name: Emily. I've also been called Ember and Bird Girl as nicknames by people I know.

 

. Gender: Female

 

. State: California

 

. Age: Old enough to know betterXD. A woman never reveals her age. Wait, or is that weight? Yeah, it's weight, but I'm still not telling my age. Let's just say I've been out of high school for a while.

 

Birthday: February 1 (Aquarius power!)

 

. Hair Color: Blonde ( though most of my SoD vikings as well as Raineir my OC have some shade of brown)

 

. Favorite color(s): Purple and green

 

. Favorite Gemstone: Amethyst.  It is my birthstone, after all.  Plus, it's purple/violet!

 

. Favorite movie(s): How to Train Your Dragon, definitely. Also, probably Pirates of the Caribbean (the first one) would be my favorite live action.

 

. Favorite TV shows: Dreamworks Dragons, Top Gear (until the 23rd season), Hawaii 5-0 (not really anymore, it totally went downhill for me the most recent seasons), Modern Family, Lone Star Law, Gilligan's Island (60s show, my dad watched it when he was younger and introduced it to me), Avatar: The Last Airbender

 

 

Favorite food(s): CHOCOLATE, anything Reeses, and my mom's spaghetti

 

. Pets: A cat, two Scottie dogs, and two chickens (both hens)

 

. Favorite animal: Oh, where do I start? I'll do top 5 in no particular order: domestic cat, birds, elephant, sea turtle, domestic dog, and dragons. Oh, that was six. It's hard choosing just five!

 

Hobbies: Birding, birdwatching, exploring the outdoors, HTTYD, and doodling random stuff

 

Superhero alias: Might as well, since I created one for myself back in high school. Peregrine, able to fly at fast speeds, has super strength (raptor talons have a STRONG grip), hawk-like vision, and can talk to animals, mostly birds.

 

Fun facts about me: I have a huge passion for nature, especially birds.  I'm not afraid to touch or hold bugs, insects, amphibians, and reptiles, including snakes.

 

Hogwarts House (according to Pottermore): HUFFLEPUFF!

 

 

About me (in SoD)

 

. I joined SoD on: March 5, 2017.  I created my forum account on January 27, 2018.

 

. Main Viking(s): nakataGreenThumbs and Seerboldraven

 

. Main Dragon(s): nakataGreenThumbs: Lightning the Shockjaw, Skyhopper the Titan Deadly Nadder, and Claw the Sand Wraith. Seerboldraven: Flash the Titan Skrill and Silvermist the Flightmare

 

. Clan: The Light Fury Racers

 

Trophies: 186. So far, all my trophies are from racing, which, for me, took many races. I've gotten a lot better, but I'm in no way the best.

 

. Main Dragon for Racing: My Sand Wraith, Claw. Sand Wraiths may not have Toothless' speed or acceleration rate, or the speed of dragons like the Skrill and Razorwhip, but they have a very good top speed at 8.8, and they have a better acceleration and turn rate. This, in my opinon, makes them one of the best racing dragons.  For my second main viking, Seerboldraven, it's Silvermist the Flightmare. Not quite as good acceleration and turn rate as the Sand Wraith, but the speed is the same (8.8), and the turn rate is still good for a race.

 

Main Dragon for Battle: My Whispering Death, Thorntail. I also use my Changewing, Ghost. For Seerboldraven, it's Whisper the Whispering Death.

 

My code: EZEPJ4, just in case you want to be friends but can't find me in-game.

 

Random Fact I just came up with: If dragons were birds, let's face it: the Night Fury would either be a Peregrine Falcon because both are really fast, or a Barn Owl because both are stealthy and have a hair-raising screech.

 

I am fully against Hacking in SoD!

Here's the story about how my OC viking Raineir met her dragon:

 Berk was not an easy place to live. It was cold, it snowed there most of the year, finding food was not always an easy task, and, yes, it was cold. Oh, and the almost constant dragon raids didn't help matters either. To Berk's vikings, it was either kill or be killed, no other option. Well, except for one viking girl. Much like Berk's heir, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, Raineir Feralsome was considered an "odd one out." Except, instead of wanting to prove herself by killing a dragon like Hiccup, she didn't like to kill. She thought there had to be another way like Valka, Hiccup's 'dead' mother. One day, Raineir was exploring the forest in Raven Point. She liked to explore the land of Berk, learning about its geographical features. Seemingly out of nowhere, a screech of pain rang out. Alarmed, Raineir ran towards the source of the noise. Coming upon a cove (yes, THAT cove), she looked down and saw a small group of what appeared to be hunters, since they were holding spears and bows and arrows. They were surrounding what looked like a Skrill. The poor dragon was in bad shape. There were wounds on its sides, and had trouble fighting the hunters off in her weakened state. Raineir quickly climbed down and made herself known. "Hey!" She shouted, "step away from the Skrill, and none of you will get hurt!" She drew her sword and moved in front of the dragon. The leader stared at her, then laughed. "You?" He said, "a mere girl willing to fight to defend a beast?" She didn't flinch, only glaring more fiercly at him. Making up her mind, she charged at him, sword ready, not to kill, but to possibly knock him and his goonies out. As she was about to do so, a a small bolt of lightning came from... the sword? The lightning hit one of the hunters, instantly knocking him out. Surprised, Raineir looked at her sword in shock, then glared at the leader again. Not wanting to become the next target, he and the rest of his goonies ran away fast. Once they were gone, she turned towards the Skrill, taking medical supplies out of her satchel. The Skrill looked at her in shock, obviously surprised to witness a human protecting a dragon. Raineir put her hand out. The Skrill seemed hesitant, but then she put her snout gently on the girl's outstretched hand. Raineir set to work on cleaning and bandaging the dragon's wounds. She decided to name her dragon Flash. Flash, once fully healed, let Raineir become her rider. Because Raineir had saved Flash, Flash would never stop protecting her from any threat. They're more than just friends; they're family, and will always be loyal to each other, no matter what. This story happened about a month or so before Hiccup discovered Toothless.

 

Here's how Raineir met Scout:

Raineir was having a pretty good day. Hiccup woke up from his coma a few days ago and was getting used to his prosthetic, and the war between the dragons and Berkians was finally over. She went to go get some fish for Flash's dinner, and aside from nearly tripping over Fungus, Mildew's sheep, and listening to Mildew complain about that, not much happened with that. Upon arriving home, she set the basket of fish in front of Flash (Flash stayed with Raineir and sometimes slept in Raineir's room instead of the stables) who promptly started eating happily. Raineir heard a tiny squeak come from somewhere. Confused, she looked around for the location and source of the noise. It sounded like a Terrible Terror. Flash suddenly stopped eating and growled at her fish basket. "Flash, what-," Raineir peered inside and out flew a pink and yellow Terrible Terror with reddish brown horns and back spines. Flash roared in alarm and growled at the intruder. "Whoa! Calm down, girl. It's just a little Terrible Terror," Raineir tried to calm her down. She held her hand to the little dragon, who looked defensive. "Hey, it's ok, little guy." the terror growled at that. "Oh, I'm sorry! You're a girl, then." Happily, the dragon nudged Raineir's hand. "I think I'll name you... Scout! What do you think, do you like that name?" Scout squeaked happily at that. Soon enough, Flash warmed up to the little newcomer, though was still sometimes annoyed by the little dragon's antics and 'singing.' Raineir soon trained Scout to search/scout out objects with hand signals. Her new friend warmed up to Raineir's parents and fellow dragon riders/friends pretty quickly (Snotlout is an on and off case).

 

How Raineir met Claw:

It was a fairly stormy day on Berk, with rain coming down in plentiful amounts, though no thunder or lightning. Raineir was riding Flash on their evening flight, despite the weather. They landed in the cove, when a loud roar was heard. It sounded like a roar of distress. "Deja Vu," Raineir said. This was what happened right before she found Flash. She climbed back on Flash and they flew into the forest, towards the source of the roar. In a large clearing was a purple... Sand Wraith? It was a Sand Wraith! The poor guy looked lost and confused, so naturally Raineir wanted to help. Cautiously and slowly, she walked up to the dragon. The Sand Wraith turned around and noticed her standing a few feet away from him. Alarmed, he got ready to attack if necessary. He growled loudly at her. Flash got into her attacking position as well, ready to defend her sister if needed. Raineir calmed Flash down. "It's ok, don't worry, girl. I got this." Flash calmed down, though she still looked wary. Surprised at the bond between a dragon and a human, the Sand Wraith seemed to calm down a little as well, though still a bit defensive. Raineir then noticed the scars on the dragon's right side, as well as the fact that the left wing looked broken. She slowly held her hand out to him. "Hey there, boy. You must have had a tough time with humans, huh? I can help you with that wing of yours, if you let me. I won't hurt you. I promise." The Sand Wraith seemed hesitant, but then he slowly pressed his snout into Raineir's palm. "Ok, I'm going to need help getting you back. I'm going to let out a call, so don't be startled when I do, ok?" The dragon nodded. Raineir let out a Night Fury call. Soon, Hiccup arrived on Toothless, and together with Raineir and Flash, they created a large sling which the two dragons carried the Sand Wraith to the village in. The dragon was hostile to the other villagers, but Raineir calmed him down. Gothi was able to fix and bandage his wing. Unfortunately, even when fully healed, Claw, as he was now named, would always fly abnormally, though he was forever grateful to the viking girl who helped him.

 

How Raineir met Fireball the Gronckle:

It was peaceful on Berk once again, now that the Berkians and Outcasts were allies and Dagur was no longer a threat. Raineir was getting ready for her early morning flight with Flash. She was just finishing tying her second braid when she heard a loud commotion outside. Well, Berk was almost peaceful. There was still the occasional viking arguement and of course, untrained dragons wreaking havoc. Raineir groaned. "Not again," she said. Hurrying outside, she looked around for the source. Sure enough, there was a crowd of vikings. Raineir then noticed what was annoying the vikings: a stray and agitated Gronckle. He was obviously untrained and not used to so many humans, as he was growling and whacking his bludgeon-like tail into a few buildings, also shooting lava balls all over the place. Hiccup was already there by the time she approached the scene. Though Hiccup was one of the best at training dragons (both he and Raineir were pretty much tied with that), he looked at her and said, "Rain, can you help me train this Gronckle?" Although Gronckles were normally relatively easy to train, this one was proving to be a difficult case. Raineir agreed, and slowly approached said dragon. The Gronckle noticed her prescence and growled lowly at her, pawing the ground with his feet. "Hey, it's ok, boy. We aren't gonna hurt you. You're safe here." She then carefully held her hand out, revealing a small rock. The Gronckle looked surprised at the peace offering, but then he ate the rock happily, shooting a fireball in the sky afterward. He then nudged Raineir's hand. She smiled. "That's what I'm gonna call you. Fireball."

 

How Raineir met Earthgrinder the Whispering Death:

On the little-known, forested island of Rock Pine (I just came up with that), there were few dragons. One of them was a Titan Whispering Death. He lived in the tunnels he dug deep below the land's surface. His name was Earthgrinder. Earthgrinder's tunnels were dug deep in the forest, and for good reason. Now although very few humans have come to Rock Pine in the past, Earthgrinder was still very cautious. From past experiences, he knew what humans were capable of. He was searching for food one day, when he heard a ruckus going on. It sounded like distressed dragons and... humans! Growling, Earthgrinder readied himself for the intruders. Out of seemingly nowhere, 6 or 7 dragon hunters emerged, looking for more dragons. Having captured the island's other dragons, they turned their attention to Earthgrinder. Wanting a rare, uniquely colored dragon, they charged at him. Earthgrinder fired at them and dodged their weapons, flying away from Rock Pine. He went searching for another island to live, and came upon Dragon's Edge. Not noticing the built structures, Earthgrinder went to the forest and dug tunnels to live in. The next day, he heard... human voices! He shot out the tunnel and prepared to attack those on his island. He saw 7... teenagers, it looked like. And were those dragons protecting them? One of them, girl with dark brown hair and violet eyes (Raineir), with a Skrill next to her, came up to him slowly and cautiously, putting her hand out gently. Earthgrinder wasn't sure what to think. After a few moments, he decided they were good and pressed his snout into her palm. Since meeting these young humans, Earthgrinder soon became used to living with them and their dragons, especially the girl, the first human to show him kindness.

 

 

 

 

About Raineir

 

Full Name: Raineir Feralsome

 

Age: 19-20 (by the time of How to Train Your Dragon 2)

 

Gender: Female

 

Height: Shorter than the average female. 5 ft, 2 in.

 

Hair Color: Dark brown, tied into two semi-long braids in the back. In HTTYD 3, she now has wavy, shoulder length dark brown hair, which now has a purple streak on the right side.

 

Eye Color: Violet

 

Wears: Long sleeve gray dress, dark green leggings, brown fur boots, and two belts, one around the waist and one cross body style in which she keeps her sword. She also wears a necklace with a silver pendant of a Skrill. In HTTYD 3, Raineir now wears a short sleeve gray and purple top, gray leggings, Skrill-inspired skirt, Skrill boots, Skrill arm bracers, and metal shoulder guards. She still wears the waist belt, but instead of just one cross-body belt, she has two that cross over each other. She also still has the Skrill necklace.

 

Dragons: A Skrill named Flash. Flash looks like a regular Skrill, but has noticeable scars on her sides from when she was wounded by dragon hunters, about a month or so before Hiccup met Toothless. Flash, in an act of graditude, accepted Raineir as her rider and life-long partner. Like Hiccup and Toothless, Raineir and Flash proved that friends aren't just limited to the same species. Flash's personality is a little different from the average Skrill, though being one, she can have a bit of an attitude, and like Toothless, can be sarcastic and snarky. Nevertheless, Flash is a very loyal partner to Raineir. She is very affectionate towards her human sister (Raineir) and other humans and dragons she trusts. She and Raineir are very much like siblings. Raineir also later befriends a Terrible Terror she names Scout, who she taught to "scout" out people, dragons, and objects using hand signals. Scout is very friendly and playful, though not afraid to fight if her friends are threatened. Sometime between Mildew's betrayal of Berk and the war between the Berkian, Outcasts, and Berserkers, Raineir found and helped Claw, a Sand Wraith lost and confused in the forests of Berk.

 

Other Dragons: In addition to her three main dragons, Raineir has also trained many others: Earthgrinder a titan Whispering Death, Silvermist a light violet Flightmare, Fireflower a violet Monstrous Nightmare, Lightning a violet and green Shockjaw, Fireball a Gronckle, Bluebird a Deadly Nadder, and many others.

 

Main weapon: Electro, her trusty Gronckle Iron sword. Upon meeting Flash for the first time, Raineir defended her from dragon hunters, and discovered that her sword has the ability to shoot out lightning bolts.

 

Personality: In the first movie (if she were in it), she was much like Hiccup, though not as awkward (sorry, Hiccup). She and Hiccup are still very similar to one another. Raineir is intelligent, sometimes sarcastic, and very witty. Like Astrid, she is fully willing to fiercely defend her friends. She is a very kind and good-hearted person, always ready to help out her friends and family, though not afraid to call them out when they get out of line. She doesn't like to kill unless it's absolutely necessary. Raineir, like Hiccup, likes to consider herself a peacemaker.

 

Unofficial, Official Title: The Lightning Rider

 

Fun fact about Raineir: For an unknown reason, Raineir has an immunity to lightning, and eletrical shocks don't hurt or affect her negatively in any way. She may have been born this way, or maybe she gained it early on in her life, both probably foreshadowing her becoming a Skrill rider.

For me, it started doing that when they updated with the new water at the School which has been almost a month ago. I never had a problem with Thunder Run crashing before that. I'm starting to lose hope that it's going to be fixed anytime soon. :(

As of yesterday this has been going on for 1 month. /1 MONTH!!!!/ There have been /zero/ updates about this issue being fixed. This is really disappointing. Thunder Run is one of the things that draws a lot of people to this game. That combined with the fact that there are / a lot/ of daily racers should make getting Thunder Run fixed a priority. I'm sorry to say this but the way this has been handled leaves much to be desired.

Eagle!!!!! Hi! :D I didn't know you had a forum account.

Yes, it's been very frustrating. I haven't been able to race since this started happening. I try to check every day to see if it's been fixed and if it hasn't I just log off the game and do something else. I messaged Brynjolf about it on June 28 and he said that the team is aware of it and working on it. I'm not sure how long we'll have to wait for a fix but I hope that it's fixed sooner rather than later. I miss being able to race and I miss racing against all the racers that I usually see on the tracks.

Note: I’m not using paragraphs for it (this is how it typed out so...)

 

~How my viking got (some) of her woolyhowls~

 

It was evening, getting dark and cold...the isolated village (not Berk) was freezing up like water in a freezer.

A rider mounted a small, black with gold spots, sand wraith and took off west towards a mountain range.

The rider was covered in a thick leather hood\cloak and grasped tightly to her dragons saddle as the piercing winds and falling snow covered them. The dragons wings were carried off with the wind as he skillfully navigated through the weather-he almost seemed to be playing with himself surprisingly. Through the peaks that scratched the sky, both rider and dragon glided or flew enjoying a flight before the night set in...until.

Not long later, a gianormous gust of wind and snowflakes hammered down on the area, leaving very little visibility and bad maneuverability for the dragon while his playfulness quickly turned into panic. Sabotaged with the new obstacle, the rider, quickly knowing that her sand wraith would most likely fail to beat the winds, scanned below for a good landing spot. Oh, but, there was no ground in sight! What seemed like a harmless trip through the sky turned into a life threatening situation! It was only a matter of time before Dirtpaw, young and scrawny like he was, would give into the bitter storm and fall though the air...actually, that’s exactly what happened a few minutes later.

Dirtpaw’s wings locked and he-along with his poor rider- started to helplessly drop to their possible end as heavy snow encircled them both...but then this huge shape started comming after them. It was a dragon for sure, built for snow-storms of course and such speed that it swooped up the dragon and rider with ease...

As the big paws of the unknown helper wrapped around Dirtpaw’s body, the rider had time to take a glimpse of this dragon (that supposedly saved their lives). Giant spikes down the back getting smaller to the tail, a frame very similar to the sand wraith, and the power of the wings that were able to carry itself and the two other bodies gave it all away..

The woolly howl, a majestic but fierce strike class dragon, swept down to the ground breezing through the blizzard like a knife. When they landed (it may have been a ledge or the actual ground, but you can’t tell since the visibility was low) the woolyhowl had brought them on the outside of a cave made out of some sort of black stone. After it dropped the creatures whom it had picked up on what seemed to be a return flight, the dragon backed up towards the cave with a cautious, but curious pace-never taking its eyes off the two.

Hannah just stood their with her hand on Dirtpaw’s neck. She could not believe what just happend. This woolly howl, which seemed pretty wild, saved her dragon and herself from a near disaster. Looking straight at the two, the woolyhowl was grayish with a even darker belly but white tips on the fur-like spikes. Looking close, Hannah noticed it had deep purple eyes that looked right at her. She and Dirtpaw did not dare move a muscle...

Snow whirled around the trio as the woolly howl scanned its eyes on dragon and rider, but after what seemed like forever staring at them, the woolyhowl gave a quick snort and started to make way towards the cave. As the dragon entered the cave, Dirtpaw was the first one to break silience and stillness with his wings when they shot up for a second to ease the tension of the situation. He then sat down for a second in the snow and gave his rider an exhausted glare as if trying to say, “that was absolutely terrifying, now what?”. To be honest, Hannah did not know what to do next. If they stayed out here, they would likely freeze, so this left only one option open. Go inside the cave and hope that the woolly howl didn’t turn on them and rip them to shreds...

careful steps and slow gestures were on Hannah’s mind when she entered the cave-more steps showed the width and length to be quite large. However,not long after, the girl could now see the ending of the cave as well as the woolly howl and a clutch of eggs. Panic shook inside the viking and her sand wraith, who was slowly trailing behind now. This was a very dangerous situation! There was no telling what the mother dragon would do to the in-coming intruders as they both slowly backed up... The woolly howl didn’t do anything though. She just stayed put, and acted like the rider and dragon were harmless birds waiting out the storm. True that they were no match for a dragon like her (and I guess she sensed that) but this was rare that she hadn’t attacked or snarled at them.

Baffled Hannah, at this point, stopped backing up for a moment to observe the dragon and her eggs... Dirtpaw did very similar as he passively looked at the ground. Ten minutes later, the girl and sand wraith lost patience and decided to sit down. Still nothing happened, as the woolly howl countinued to stare at them every once in a while-all while the night started to settle in. Speaking of night, sleep was beginning to nag at Dirtpaw and Hannah, who were already tired from today’s excitement. Thinking of sleep was enticing for them both, and soon, Dirtpaw gave in. His eyes did not open at all and he breathed slowly...his rider would have liked to do the same, but she couldn’t help but think how bad of an idea it was to sleep in the same cave with a wild dragon and eggs. As hard as she tried to stay awake and keep her guard up, tiredness took over when she leaned against her sand wraith.  The storm continued to rage outside with howling winds until morning...

Rays of glistening light shown through the cave when the sun rose out from behind the other mountains...warmth started to thaw some of the snow that had crept in. Most of the clouds were gone, as the blizzard had moved south. All was sound, and the first to open their eyes was Dirtpaw. Being a dragon meant for water, he was eager to get his rider up and finally go home-and thats what he did. Hannah’s eyes shot wide open at the feel of Dirtpaw’s muzzle nudging against her left arm. Coldness crept all over her body, as her cloths were not meant to stand this type of temperature for this long of time, infact, she felt very similar to a frozen piece of meat. It took a few minutes, but she was finally on her feet with Dirtpaw by her side. A quick glance at the peacefully sleeping woolly howl told the two that this was a perfect time to leave. Walking out of the cave, Hannah mounted Dirtpaw and gave one last look at the dragon and her eggs; silently giving thanks to the mother for possibly saving their lives.

It wasn’t a long flight back to the village at all, and on the way back...she encountered another dragon rider who was sent to go looking for her. Erik, one of her two cousins, rode on a black hotburple after her. Granted he was about three years younger than Hannah, he was (acted anyways) like he could handle stuff like this...As he came in reach of Dirtpaw, he shouted “HEY YOU! It sure looks like you got carried away again on one of your evening cruises...you got everyone worried again-except me of course.” he added with a hint of sarcasm. Hannah managed to roll her eyes at him and slip a small smile. She was glad to be safe.

The village was a small one, cornered in-between four mountains with little space. A few of the houses actually ran up the steep, ice covered, slopes of some of them. As Erik and Hannah landed in front of their hut (which was one of the smallest), the door burst open and three vikings dressed in heavy winter gear ran out towards them. “Ohhhh my gods!!!! WHERE WERE YOU???” the youngest one, Alvildja bursted out. She wrapped her arms tightly around Hannah and nearly squeezed her to death. The next greeter, a rather tall and muscular guy, spoke in a calm tone and hugged Hannah with one arm, “ hmm ...maybe next time, wait see if storm approaches. Then this wouldn’t happen much. Doesn’t matter, you home now.” Thorvaldeir looked at his friend with a soft expression. The last one-Erik’s sister,Nerve, circled around Hannah with a face that showed zero emotion,“well done kid. You made it back with everyone worried sick. What do you have to say for yourself?”.

“Oh well..just another thing gone wrong- yes, it was a really-umm-interesting adventure” Hannah replied as she returned Alvildja and Thorvaldeir’s  hugs. “I’ll tell y’all about it later.” as she walked inside the hut. She felt frozen to the bone and did not want to answer any questions of their questions at the moment...

Fire whirled inside the fireplace, so it didn’t take long until the hut was boiling inside...the area barely fit the five vikings, who were now all sitting down having an early lunch. Silience ruled until Erik spoke up asking about what happened-and for the next twenty minutes, Hannah talked about the encounter with the woolly howl.  

“Wait, so the dragon didn’t attack you at all?” Nerve questioned as she took a bite of her meal. “ Did you get to touch the eggs? How many were there?” Alvildja chirped in. Hannah answered, “ I have no idea why she didn’t...lucky us I guess...no I did not touch the eggs, that would have probably caused her to ki.ll us!” This went on for another twenty or so minutes. The last question answered, from Erik, was if the woolly howl currently lived in that exact area. “I think so...not one hundred percent...why do you ask Erik?” Hannah already knew why he asked, as Erik wanted to go find the woolly howl for himself. “Ah well, it would be a great way to waste around-watching her and the eggs. Maybe while we’re observing, they will hatch and-’’ before he could finish, Nerve interrupted her brother. “Uhh ok ok...but you don’t know the way do you?” Erik gave her an assuring glance, “pffft you think I don’t know? It’s above that sheet of ice that stretches across from the peak right behind us...I’ve been there plenty of times-including the cave.” 

An agreement came between the three vikings (Nerve, Hannah and Erik) that they would go and visit the dragon and her eggs tomorrow. Nerve’s only excuse for coming was she wanted to back the other two up in case anything happened...but really she wanted to find the woolly howl and eggs as well.

morning came, and they set off. Erik riding his hotburble, Nerve riding a skuttleclaw, and Hannah riding Dirtpaw again. The sky was fairly clear, and there wasn’t much wind except a cool breeze that swept nicely under the dragons wings...it didn’t take them long to reach their destination. Maybe about a foot of snow covered the ground as the three flew low searching for any movement. After an hour (it felt like more), a bulky shape was spotted flying towards them. The woolly howl dived down and sped right under-neath them. She didn’t  seem to pay much attention to the riders and dragons- she only glared at them with her lazy purple eyes. Almost positive she was going back to the cave, Erik suddenly spoke, “ The eggs!!!” he whipped his dragon around and started to very slowly, trail the woolly howl.

Hannah and Nerve both looked at each other, and after a split second, turned their dragons around trying to catch up to  Erik. The woolly howl reacted first though. She spun her body around at Erik and blasted a couple shots at him. Made out of icey hail balls, they could easily take out any of the three dragons...and for next few seconds, all three riders and their dragons tried to dodge them.

Dirtpaw and Hannah were, unfortunately, the first to suffer the blasts, as they were not quick enough to get out of the way. Next, Erik with his hotburple; and last, Nerve and her dragon were hit. The damage caused to each individual was rather interesting. The sand wraith and skuttleclaw were thrown out of balance, and they almost slammed into the ground. As for the hotburple, he spun around out of control, but not as much as the other two dragons- i guess because he was sturdier (in terms of armour). However, after the three recovered, the woolly howl had vanished.

“OK! That was WAYYY too close...” Nerve was the first to respond. “See this is exactly why you two-especially Erik when it comes to observing dragons-get into trouble! Curiousty can be a dangerous thing.” Erik answered back, “ohhhh well. Yea I didn’t mean for that to happen...” he shrugged and looked beyond his sister’s infuriated glare. Hannah said similar, “ugh..yea that didn’t turn out well. At least we know some of her (the woolly howls) boundaries though”. Nerve said nothing to them both on the trip back.  The next day, when they agreed to go looking for the woolly howl again, was different. 

Distance was kept this time (by a lot), and in return, the woolly howl acted completely normal...notes were written and drawn as the three watched her for at least an hour. This soon became a daily habit for the three vikings and their dragons, as there wasn’t any better way to spend some time doing this.

Day after day, they visited the place, usually-if not always- spotting her. 

Then, one day, they couldn’t find her. The next day was the same..and much time was spent trying to find the woolly howl and/or her eggs. Hannah concluded, that maybe she temporarily left, however that possiblty was unlikely since she would most likely not leave her eggs for that amount of time...Erik suggested that they go back to the cave. Nerve wasn’t very happy with it, but the decision was made to go and check.

I'm starting to feel that way myself. I pmed Brynjolf about it last week and he said that they're working on it but I'm starting to feel like that they're dragging their heels on fixing it. I saw a thread earlier that said the pink water at Icestorm Island has been fixed. Why on earth did fixing that come before fixing TRR?!?! I just don't understand. :/

This TRR crashing looks like it is harder for them to fix than most other problems that come up. That’s the only explanation I could think of that wouldn’t involve them giving up on on the problem...

I had thought of that but I think that every effort should be put into fixing TRR before fixing small things like texture glitches. I know they probably think since it won't take long to fix a texture glitch that it won't matter but TRR should be given priority right now since it's been broken for over a month.

Agreed. It should be top priority to get this fixed. Thunder Run is really popular, lots of people race daily. There should be no reason it's taking them this long to fix it. They fixed the motin blur, the invisible battle ships, the unlimited shots battle glitch, and the pink water at Icestorm Island so there's no reason why they couldn't have fixed Thunder Run by now. I'm really hoping we don't have to wait until the next major update for a fix. Since there's no telling when that will be, there's no telling how long we'd have to wait.

Hoping soon

I hope they fix this. The crashing is everywhere in game. But rarely can I race more than once and it crashes. I have had some success getting more than one race if I wait after the race a few seconds before going back to the lobby. I click on friends best times. Clan times. Than go back to lobby.

This is not the yellow of the egg

I think this is a new record - I could race five races without crash :o but then it crashed.

My record was 8! :p
I made a new world record of "racing without a single crash in SoD".

Why is this not fixed?

The most races I have done without crashing on my main viking is four. However, I have a couple "newbie" vikings (low level, minimal dragons, created within the past few weeks/days) that I can race indefinitely without crashing... Unfortunately, I have no reason to race these vikings, but it's interesting that they do not crash...

It has been almost a month and a half since this issue started... Really hope this is fixed soon...

"Why is this not fixed?"

I've been wondering that for quite some time. It better be fixed soon.

 

That's interesting about those new vikings. I wonder why you don't crash when using them. SoD logic I guess. XD

On my other game, osu! I have once sent an email to the creator of the game himself. Few days later I received a response, and he fixed my issue. Why can’t the game be more like this? Are they just so lazy that they don’t have the time to fix one problem? I mean, they showed us they are capable of fixing the ships/water and other things so why not this?

Man, I wish that this game was like that. It would make dealing with bugs and glitches a lot easier.

 

I'm starting to think that this issue is a lot more difficult to fix than they orginally thought and so they've decided to fix smaller issues first and push this one off to the side.

I agree, the other game that I play is a bit more expensive than this one. But they at least care about their customers. It's got 1,000,000,000 players online each day. You see him actively playing the game as well as helping fix problems. .........Maybe, they don't think it's such a big deal since other people aren't crashing at all? Though it's still unfair.

This really is starting to get ridiculous. Just as thought the glitch was finally fixed, I once again crashed after a single race! I get my hopes up every Tuesday in hopes they'd actually fix it while they're implementing a new item or dragon but sadly that has never been the case. You'd think with so many posts about this, they'd fix it by now! I mean they fixed the motion blur and the ghost ships but no word on the progress of this? It almost feels like we're getting ignored at this point.

I feel the same way. Every week I get my hopes up that it will be fixed and every week they get dashed. It really should've been fixed by now. The fact that none of the threads about it have been commented on by an admin does really feel like it's being ignored.

For my sanity, please fix TRR

If I recall correctly, TRR has been broken for six weeks now with no improvement. Most players still crash after every 1-3 races, the chat does not work properly, and I don't even know what is going on with Frozen Warriors...

 

Sooo... Is this going to be fixed anytime soon?

 

On a different note, does it seem like there has been more drama on SoD in the time that TRR has been broken..? O.o  Or perhaps I am just noticing it more, since I have been unable to hide in TRR... LoL

Who's gonna fix this ship? We got a mess within

Oh yes, Frozen Warriors has been even more laggy than before. Now I lose almost every on this track. Haven't noticed anything with the chat though, only that I'm banned since today because I asked for a dragon's name with Q before the name and I forgot that I could also be asking for a player's name... frustrating.

As for drama, I haven't noticed anything different.

And rally, PLEASE fix this. Thank you very much.

I've honestly lost track of how many weeks it's been but 6 sounds about right. On Monday I actually got to do 5 races before it crashed but yesterday and today it was back down to only 1 before I crashed.

 

Are you referring to the water turning bright blue on Frozen Warriors? If so, I've noticed that too. I've also noticed that most tracks are really laggy for me ever since the crashing started.

 

I haven't noticed any difference in drama on the game but that may be because I haven't really played SoD for very long every day ever since the issue with Thunder Run started. I've been checking in every day and seeing if it's fixed and then when I found out it hasn't I play a different game. If I am on for a longer period of time, I'm most likely in my stables refreshing stable quests every 10 minutes.

If the game is fixing itself, I wish it'd fix the crashing. I feel like by the time it's fixed I'll feel like a newbie on the tracks.
