Too many Flightmare!!!

So I know this has been a thing for a while, but still annoyed that the Flightmare (specifically) has a 1/4 chance of being given to new players for free.

 

Currently there are more Flightmare on campus than any of the four "main" berkian dragons - which used to be super prevalent - because people aren't bothering to grow the traditional starters in favour of the cooler, free dragons they are getting.

 

I can deal with Sand Wraith, Rumblehorns, and Shockjaws because they are all either common species or game-exclusives that SoD can really make up the lore about - but the Flightmare is meant to be a very rare and exotic dragon that would be selling like hot cakes if you didn't hand them out at the gate. It is also (unless I'm mistaken?) the ONLY dragon with a unique animation out of the four, which wasn't the case when it was added.

 

I suspect the only reason it was chosen is because it fits in the cage that the dragons are freed from in the opening animation - I would rather see it replaced with a Hotburple or some other less popular dragon so we get a bit more realistic variety around the place, rather than a bunch of miscoloured, glowing popsicles that are reducing this exotic species to a common bother. This is a glaring mistake from both a canon and buisness perspective.

 

Any support? =P

I sure hope they find one soon. It would be a pity if they didn't.

In fact... perhaps they're planning something bigger right now!

Nah. That's ridiculous.

I mean there's the Eruptodon, Screaming Death and the Buffalord in the game and those are very rare or near extinct dragons

But for FREE...

Yes, but none of those dragons are free - the Eruptodon is an expansion exclusive (unless you consider the Promo Code that most players don't know about) the Buffalord is only attainable through direct gem purchase and the Screaming Death is one of the most expensive eggs in the game (although I do have a slight issue with that one, tbh).

 

The problem I have with the flightmare is less that it's a rare dragon (we've seen more than one in the show) but rather that the way they are being distributed makes them so incredibly prevalent compared to species that are meant to be much, much more common. Again, nearly 1/4 players own a Flightmare, some as their only flying dragon.

The Eruptodon isn't expansion exclusive. You can buy it for 750 gems in the store.

 

I don't think the size of the cage/dragon has anything to do with why it was chosen. I suspect it has more to do with battle events. 2 of the dragons that are available to be rescued are good for battles(Sand Wraith and Shockjaw) whereas the other 2(Rumblehorn and Flightmare) aren't. I figure that they wanted to give people a chance to participate in battles the minute that they joined the game which was why the new beginning with the rescued dragon was put in place and they wanted to keep things balanced by having 2 dragons that were good in battle and 2 that weren't.

Hotburple of DOOM

Well, then it could definately be replaced with Hotburple - it's also pretty bad at Battle events.

Considering this is the game where you can ride something as tiny as Hobgobbler, train a Changewing, and watch as dozens of Toothlesses fly around without a saddle, I don't see much of a problem with Flightmares being a common sight these days. Heck, when the opening was first introduced and I rescued a Flightmare, it not only got me playing the game again but made me love Flightmares! Sure, this reduces the inclination to buy a Flightmare (primarily for those who've managed to rescue one) but the increasing amount of dragons that you can only get in the store (like the Dramillion and Grim Gnasher) kind of help balance it out. Not to mention those who are interested in getting multiple Flightmares (like myself) and don't want to wait for battle events and/stable missions to pull through.

There's not a single dragon species whose rarity matters in this game though? I'd rather see a bunch of flightmares than more than one Toothless on a single map.

Wintermoon flew off with the subject

As much as it gets repetitive seeing so many flightmares as mentioned above I'd rather see that then an army of Toothless. I do like the idea of a starter dragon to fly with but I think people should still level up the Berk dragons. I remember having to level up my nadder before being able to fly at all before they added these rescue dragons and as annoying as it was, it's rewarding to FINALLY be able to fly.

Missing out

I know! So many people are missing out on that experience.

I know that the Toothless are a more grevious canon error, but that's a lot harder to fix - the Flightmare thing would literally just be swapping out the starter unlock for another dragon. Wouldn't affect existing ones, obviously.

First toothless and now this. Ahem, although I highly respect your opinion I have to disagree. Saying that there’s too many dragons of (insert specific species here) would be like saying there’s too many Sand Wraths. To me, personally, unless a breed is endangered, or exstinct (in most cases like toothless), then that can be a solid argument. 

 

But unfortunatly the game doesn’t work like that. XD 

Despite being exstinct, there could be 50 to 100 toothlesses flying around. Is what I’m trying to point out lol.

Aye

Agreed. I think it's silly to complain about any of the dragons, tbh. This is a game that's aimed at younger fans of the series, so pretty much any dragon will be availble, provided they do what it takes to get it. I'd understand the complaint for rarity if this was say...Riders of Icarus, where you have to jump through about 500 loops JUST to get an extreamly rare and impossible to tame creature you may end up not even using.
