I didn't play the game much near December, and when I started playing again around a month ago I realized I missed the events for the Night Lights and the dragon hybrids. I would really love to spend my gems on them, will they potentially be back?

I started playing this game back in August of 2014, and have since been on and off the game

over the years (I guess I'm qualified to be a "veteran," eh?). 

  I'm definitely not obsessed with Stormcutters...

Gonna be flat out
For the dreadstrider and Skrillnapper: No. Probably not until the next Halloween where they drag out the same event with minimal changes.

Nightlights: possibly seeing as though they are a main movie/ special kind of dragon. I think this upcoming event could bring them back becuase Easter and baby things but with this game, it's always a gamble

Thank you!

I really hope they bring out some special dragons for Easter, or make a different event of some kind. Thank you!!

Optimistically...

I'm feeling like... Yes?

 

I mean, why would you create a model for a dragon species that would only appear once. Like... ONCE.

Dunno when, probably they'll show up again but I feel like they would make another appearance.

Thank you so much!

I know, there are a lot of things the game put out years ago that I missed and they haven't put them out since. The Night Lights are so important, I expected them to be like a membership thing really.. Thank you! I hope they do put them back out soon

I bet they'll be seasonal. Espessully the skrillnapper and dreadstrider. Those two were spesificly made for a harvest haunt event. They'll probubly show up as some of the prizes every year. (Hopefully they'll improve the event though. Lotta glitches and stuff happened because that sort of event was totally new)

Ohhhhhh

I wasn't around for that event, I did hear about some of the glitches tho. SOD has a ton of glitches that I can't imagine the game without them. It's like every time I log on something wrong happens

As obtainable breeds? I hope not! I'm pretty sure they were advertised as exclusive and I'd be incredibly disappointed if they did a 180 on that.

Yeah

I see your point, like they would be more special. I think it would be nice though for people like me who want them and couldn't get them to have an opportunity tho

I also agree that they should

I also agree that they should stay seasonal. The hybrids. Not even because they are more special if they are not available always and for everyone - I mean, that's also the reason, but for me not the most important one. It's just... I've always seen SoD as a more or less canon game. And hybrids... I'm not fond of the idea of hybrid dragons at all.

 

HTTYD:THW showed that ONLY dragon species which are VERY CLOSELY CONNECTED are able to have babies together. Okay. But some people (and developers!) think it's some kind of permission for an interspecies crossing, which it is not. And now a lot of game devs (and ppl at all) focus mostly on the idea of making hybrids. Hybrids that can't exist, even in HTTYD universe, because even there two random species dragons still can't have babies! If they could, they would have them for a very long time. And they don't, we still have different species and nothing between almost all of them - except Furies, but they are very similar species, almost the same, and for sure they come from one species (that's the only explanation of Night Fury's useless ability of disappearing - it's a relict trait after common ancestor with Light Fury).

 

I want to say I don't like the idea of hybrids because it destroys the idea of species. If every dragon is able to breed with every other dragon, no matter what species it is, then in short amount of time there is no breeds, no species, there is just a lot of different dragons which have different ancestors. Moreover, there are stronger and stronger dragons with tens of abilities, because hybrids also breed with other species and hybrids. And then all the natural harmony is gone.

 

And, like I mentioned before, most hybrids are overpowered, because you know, they have abilities after "mother" species and "father" species, which means usually they have more abilities than normal dragons. How can we say Night Fury is one of most dangerous dragons, when for example a hybrid of Whispering Death and Snow Wraith with their abilities is simply better than Night Fury? Not to mention Skrillknapper or Dreadstrider.

 

SoD devs add hybrids to their game. Well, "I don't like it, I don't agree with it, but I accept it" (because I have no choice). But please, at least don't sell them like they were normal dragons and don't blend them with normal species. Hybrids are NOT normal and they destroy the balance between dragons due to their multiple abilities. If not in the game, then in HTTYD universe at all.

This is why when I wanted the skrillnapper and dreadstrider for aesthetic reasons I got them both on my completely non-canon joke character who is suppose to be a more advanced version of one of the dragon tactics robots.

(I used a headpiece and wooden mask to make it look like he's got a painted on face)

I also had enough space in his farm to make a candy farm to help me with that. 

I also got a nightlight on that one and pretended said nightlight was a literal clone of dart made by the same mad scientist that I pretended made the hybrids.

Clockwork viking meanwhile is one of Stormheart's people's inventions gone rouge.

 

 

But yeah. For actual canon stuff hybrids bug me a lot too. I really really don't like most HTTYD hybrids on a biological sense standpoint. Some of them look amazing but the biology (or rather lack there of) bugs me. Then again, figuring out the evolutionary line of HTTYD dragons would be a nightmare anyway as it was clearly not made with evolution in mind even though the show once pretended it was. So many differing numbers of limbs. AARRRRG!!!

I also don't like a lot of hybrid fan characters because most people I've seen with them just take all both dragon's strengths and eather don't add any of the species weaknesses or they don't show how the mixing of two dragons from VERY different environments might cause a new weakness.

Like, if you could cross a penguin and an albatross (and I'm not saying you can because I know you can't, just theoretically if you could) you would not get an animal that can swim as well as a penguin and also fly as well as an albatross. You'd get something that would level out somewhere in the middle or one of its abilities might even be completely b.orked. (Like, it might not fly at all and not swim as well as the penguin eather as its wings would be large but not so large it could take off.)

If the penguin was something that liked the REALLY cold climates you might even get something that wanted to be in cold climates but couldn't actually survive in the level of cold the penguin parent could survive in. This would worsen if you switched the albatross with an eagle or something.

 

 

 

Someone with a woolly howl/sand wraith hybrid and who went out of their way to ask me to review it for some reason after reading somewhere else that I don't like HTTYD hybrids was very guilty of this (I will not name names because this is not a callout post just an example). While I could see a sand woolly being possible it would not be able to take as cold of temperatures as the pure howl and would not dig or swim as well as the sandy.

I tryed to explain this but I don't think they really understood what I was trying to say. (For the record they were very polite. It wasn't drama. They just genuinely didn't seem to get the problem.)

 

 

 

I usually just pretend hybrids are their own species that the vikings simply THINK are hybrids.
