First battle was just fine. I got my exp, and bad reward, then immediately went on to switching servers by turning mmo on and off to find another one.

Second battle I find was the first glitched one, it was going with full health and it did not deplete, the other playing were not moving and not making an effort, so that glitch makes me believe it happens when the ship most likely lterally just died. Being as how I have come across that kind of prediciment before.

Third battle I found was the most disappointing. it was a late one that finally showed up and I waited with other players till it started. It was just normal until the very end. For me, when the battle ship was supposed to die, it didn't for me. It gave me the text saying "congrats!". However the Big ol' victory sign, board and reward did not show up for me. The ship was still going and was completely stuck at 17 percent, and clearly, it was just me as well from me seeing how all the other players stopped and went along like people usually do after battle.

Needless to say, this was very annoying, disappointing and feels just very tiring. Also, before anyone says it, I did relog afterwards to find out if i somehow was lucky and did get the exp and chest was in my inventory, but it wasn't. It was just a battle I particpated in, but got nothing out of it. 

 

Also while typing this, I feel maybe mentioned of another bug, I believe. I tried to visit a friend to another battle earlier, however, she couldn't stay landed forever, so I couldn't get into the same server as her, but could see the ship. Which strangely was basically full health, at the end of its route, looking to be stuck? I shot at it, then it ended up escaping, but it gave me no defeat sign and chest. So I decided to start switching servers to see if I could get a really late one, and surprisingly I did. However, once I got out of setting to fight it, I was actually just suddenly given the defeat sign and I was completely stuck, only ever be able to fire, but of course where I was, was in no way hitting the late ship I managed to find, and I could do nothing but close the game.

This has happened three or four times already. Twice in a row today, one of them even being a stuck battle ship...

 

Completely stuck ship, stuck at 14 health for me, but completed for everyone else. Am I really the only one experiencing this?

One Battle Only

Well, I suspect whoever's in charge figured out or was informed that smart players are getting extra battle xp by switching servers. They must've rigged players to have only one battle per Event. I've played battles all week and could not get another by switching servers. I managed to join a battle that was almost over because there weren't much players. But other than that nothing else. It could be a bug or the devs were told to rig the Battle Event. That's what i think.

 

By the way, I think I was at that battle. The ship was at 0 then switched to 14 while the "You Stopped the Scouting Boat!" was displayed but no Victory board. Yeah, I switched servers to that one.

 

Sigh, Goodbye double battle xp... just when I thought it was possible to max level all my dragons easily. Guess I'm stuck with the Flight Club/egg/eel feeding/petting method.

Back-story:

 

Fierce is a nice title. It strikes a hint of dread and warning to those who intend to do harm to the people of Berk. When I was young and lanky I was called by the less flattering title Victor the Frail.

 

I was born into the world at the worst time possible. On the coldest night of the season during a dragon raid. My father was killed protecting my mother and I. He fought bravely defending the village. A determined Monstrous Nightmare would have destroyed us all if it hadn't been for the valiant Vikings guarding those injured seeking refuge in the Great Hall.

 

Due to the cold I caught an illness. No one expected me to survive through the first winter. My mother did not give in to despair but persevered to nurture her newborn.

 

At the age of five I was beginning to understand the world around me. I also harbored an intense hatred for the creature's responsible for our constant losses especially that of my father. It became my ambition to be a heroic dragon fighter. But my body was too weak even for my age. I occasionally would catch illnesses which required my mother to frequently hike all the way to Gothi's hut to treat my ailments. This was a regular occurrence year after year. My mother did not allow me to go anywhere too far from our hut for fear I might perish from exposure of short change of temperature.

 

After suffering for five more years I got fed up with my frailty. I still couldn't lift a hammer or swing an axe. People were starting to call me "the Frail". Not anymore. I will not go down in my family's history as a weakling. So my training began. I made a exercise routine that strengthened both body and mind. Eat a healthy diet, no matter how tough and tasteless the food is. Running up to and from Gothi's hut got the blood pumping, mostly because I had to transport her medical supplies. Astrid was a good sparring partner, she taught me several combat techniques with Snotlout as the target dummy. Playing pranks with the Thorston twins sharpened my mind as well as studying the Book of Dragons and other books with Fishlegs. If I ever was going to fight those fire fuming beasts I needed to know about what armor and weapons to use. Gobber's smithy was a good place to learn. He and Hiccup taught me some valuable skills of the trade before my mother dragged me back to the hut.

 

By the time of my fifteenth birthday I noticed I've grown a considerable amount of toned muscle. My ailments seemed to disappear too. My mother was more relaxed and didn't fret when I left the hut. I was permitted to apply for Dragon Training. It was rigorous. Some of us almost got blasted by a clumsy Gronkle. I'd like to say I trained with Hiccup and the gang but no; I was with a different group of teens. Valery the Bright was a dragon nerd. She had spent more time studying the Book of Dragons than any of us would care to. Her face is innocent but her hammer is best to be avoided. Dirk the Daring was one of the most promising students in class. He was tall, strong and a bit bossy. Actually, a lot bossy. He saw me as a rival and challenged to fight when the opportunity presented itself. Kira Courageous. A strange girl from... she doesn't recall. Perhaps an island somewhere in the archipelago. She is a very strong and knowledgeable person who can be easily underestimated.

 

We almost graduated that year. Hiccup befriended a dragon, a Night Fury, the rarest of them all. And not only that. He discovered the Dragon's Nest and defeated what was causing our misery. I heard it was a gigantic mountain sized beast called the Red Death. Since then we had made peace with the dragons. However, my ambitions were crushed. At first, I never joined along with the village when they adopted dragons of their own. The death of my father and the lingering grudge was hard to let go.

 

One day I decided to join the school. The goal was to drown the bad memories and the hatred of dragons by understanding them for more than their destructive capabilities. The dragon I adopted was a Monstrous Nightmare. This one hatchling set my destiny. One that I would be most crucial to.

 

A little info about the real world me:

I'm a guy. As if you couldn't tell from the name of my main Viking.

My hobbies are drawing, writing and playing videogames. I'm not too physically active but I do regular exercise so I'm not a total couch potato.

I like to draw logos, my own characters and the outfits that they wear. Adobe Illustrator CS5 is what I mostly use and I rarely draw on paper ever since I got the program. I'm also able to draw what I see, like clothing/armor/hairstyles. But I end up altering the design into something different. I respect other peoples' artwork.

I have three science fiction novels I'm working on. One is complete. They are about alien species and advanced technology. The main characters grow up from teens to adults as the novels progress. I've written a game idea for the second novel and have written about many species of aliens. They all have unique traits and abilities. None of them are hideous by the way. I also work on bits of fan fiction once in a while just for amusement. It never gets completed because I get bored of it quickly.

Ooof, I've noticed it too, and I really hope they're not just trying to get rid of second battles for others. @ admin, devs, whoever, you got rid of the good eel roast exp to expand our ways of leveling our dragons when battles or shoving chicken eggs down their throats are the only other ways available to us to level them up. Not everyone still has quests available and tactics doesn't offer much either.
Also, late battles have also been great for me because my game loving to crash whenever a battle is going on, and when I still see I have some time, it aspires me to get back on and keep playing, but yesterday I crashed right at the end of battle, completely unable to get the experience for my dragon or anything reward, unable to find myself another one to repay the loss, but no.
