This year's event looked really interesting when I  saw the post about it. However looking at this its DISGUSTING how much of a cash grab this is. If you just want the event dragon (without doing the event) Its over 100$. Thats 100 for a mount in a game for children....... I can buy 4 WoW mounts for that price.

 

Seccond the bugs (server sync issues) Should have been hot fixed as soon as they were found out. A MEMBERSIP MMO Not getting fixed and bing unplayable but still taking peoples money.

 

All in all this is a huge flop. I am hugely dissapointed that I can't even played a game even quests that are'nt part of Dreadfall are not syncing and kicking me off.

I kind of have to agree with this. 100 eurobucks? I could buy groceries for three weeks with that.

 

Don't take me wrong, the idea of the event is awesome, but I already have so little time most days, and spending a lot of time on something only to have it bug out is just... aaaa. Yesterday I spent my entire morning on trying to catch up with tactics, and it took around an hour and a half to finish a couple levels because I kept having to restart the game all the time.

 

Then there's other bugs-- many bugs-- game-breaking bugs. This must have been the most buggy drop of all, which is unfortunate because the event in itself is really great.

Now I'm pretty super behind everyone else, but I have no incentive to spend money in order to catch up. Spending money because things (unintentionally) take very long and/or are unplayable is not a trick that'll work on people like me. I'm willing to spend money on nice and fun things, but this isn't nice nor fun. 

 

It'd be super cool if JS invested in some form of QA.

yep

I mean, I wound up dropping SOD years ago because man, it was just impossible for me to play, I was unable to catch fish to feed my dragon, in order to get fish I either had to buy them or get a better rod. Except the better rod costs gems and earning free gems wasn't a thing. So yeah I was a little peeved that in order to upgrade I had to spend actuall money >_> 

I did wind up dishing out cash to get the hybrid but I can almost guanarntee they'll putt the skrillnapper in the store at some point and I really only dished out cash to have the "privilege" of getting it early. *sigh*  Least I assume they will put it in the shop, I know SOD has limited items but hopefully no limited dragon breeds (as far as I'm aware at least)

Yeah

I pointed this out yesterday. I've had MMO's way older then this game, and younger then this game where the instant something even kind of this bad happened, there would be multiple hotfixes, and maintainences to ensure stuff worked the instant they caught wind there was trouble. Even games with really bad costomer service (worse then here) would be pumping out fixes, apologizing, and dishing out compansation ASAP. They wouldn't let a game or the forums burn for this long.

 

Heck, I even know a game that has a whole testing server, just for things like this! They have their VIP players test the stuff out and give feedback and have the testing go on for weeks or months before they release big updates, so they can make adjustments and fixes as needed, and if any bug show up afterwords? BAM! Fixes. They would NEVER let such a cash grab exist. Sure, they have lootboxes but it never is related to the event. The only money you might end up spending is for previous event items you missed out on, and it's all reasonably priced, too!

 

Overall very disappoined at the quality shown here. Where is the hotfixes we've seen for this game in the past, where they go "Problem with the thing we just released? BAM! Fixed!". They used to be good about it, quick about it.

This isn’t any other MMO. This is SoD

Sure this event has been extremely buggy, but if your patient enough then maybe you can wait for the small Jumpstart team to fix it.

 

This is School of Dragons. Created by Jumpstart Games. This isn't Minecraft by Microsoft, or Fortnite by Epic Games. Jumpstart has other games, ones that might not make enough money to actually pay their employees. And I've never spent a penny on the is game yet I have nearly 5,000 candies. If you be patient then maybe you too can see the good things of this game. I understand your frustration but I do not like people comparing this game to any other MMO. It's not my problem if you hate this game, but I do have something for you; if you hate the game the don't play it. Simple as that.

 

As I said before I have nearly 5,000 candies without spending any money on the game. That's because I'm doing as many battles as possible and when I get gems I buy more sheep for more candies. There's still 18 days left. Just be patient.

Dude

Tell me, when did you join in on the game? I've been around since 2014. I judge the game based on the quality it used to have. This event has the worst quality so far because they told us it was a cake, said it tasted like cake, but all we got was a mud pie. Don't tell us that it's "different" from other MMOs so this is excusable. It's not different. 

 

Don't tell us to "be patient". There's some people who can't access the farm at all, or DT, or anything else depending on the people. Look at the android users and windows store users! They're DAYS behind us, and you're saying they need to be patient? That's a slap to their faces if I ever saw one.

 

I don't "hate" the game. I like it a lot actually, but I expect the quality they used to have. "There's a bug? Don't worry! We'll get it seen to asap!" and then proceeds to fix those bugs the same day. This is inexusable. Yes, I'm aware they're off during the weekends, but surely they've seen the issues while they're off? I know they're human, but as adults, they can't just let things get this bad. It's just impossible to play this game because of all the "server call timed out/progress failed to sync" going on. I'd have had at least 7000 candies if not for all the bugs that SHOULD have been fixed by now.

Forget it. I know nothing. I

Forget it. I know nothing. I just wanted to be optimistic, but how can you be something you're not? I've loved the HTTYD franchise for ages but I've only known about this game for a year so just slap me in face, push me around, do whatever. I don't care anymore. I just wanted to try and be optimistic about the situation but who cares anyway. No ones ever going to get that stupid dragon

No one's here attcking or bullying you. You can be optimistic, but please understand that there's a lot of unhappy people right now because those of us who remember this game for how it used to be still hold it to that standard. Of course we're going to be riled up. Just have to be careful with what you say, because the hornets nest has been kicked. There's going to be a lot of noise in the forums and a lot of stinging barbs as a result. Sorry if I've upset you. I know the feeling trust me. I'm ususally the "glass is half full" sort, but the way things are being handled atm, it's hard to stay optimistic. We need results, not bugs.

Ehh

Don't worry about it, really. No need ot appologize. It's as I said, the forums is a kicked hornets nest atm. There's a bunch of buzzing and stinging going on. Some, like me, come to this game to de-stress. Make it stressful, and then we get touchy. Sorry if I have offended you in any way.

I can name smaller companies that produce less buggy products. Don't forget, Notch worked on minecraft on his own for a long time and still, well I think you get my point. Not to mention that Jumpstart is actually pretty huge. Not triple-A huge, though, but it's owned by NetDragon which is actually doing really well as far as I'm aware.

 

Thing is, we do like the game. That's why we take the time to explain our issues- we want them to be fixed so we can actually play the game we like. A game should always be allowed to be critiqued because player feedback helps the game improve.

 

Thing is, some things make it way too tedious to obtain candies due to bugs, which may affect some people more than others. You may have been lucky, but for some people the bugs are stopping them from obtaining the candies. The fact that it doesn't affect you is great but what is true for you doesn't necessarily have to be true for others.
