 Sorry if this doesn't belong here, but I was just wondering...are thunderdrums like, really fast? Well, I was on my skrill (Not to brag, but, I am a EXTREMLEY experianced racer, I have been racing WAY BEFORE the skrill arrived) and...this thunderdrum from the beginning raced way past me and the other racer (a boneknapper)! I thought I'd keep up, but before I knew it, this person was a lap ahead of me! And at first I thought they bought a speed boost and used it from the beginning...but...I thought about it and thought, "How can this person be so fast WITH a speed boost in Trench Dive?" To me, Trench Dive would probably be a hard place to use speed boosts. And two times the person turned around and flew backwards, and while doing so, the thunderdrum blasted me and slowed me down. Then the person just kept going the other way. Is it me, or are thunderdrums really fast? Thanks if you reply!

When they went backwards, they were using a shortcut that lets you skip past about half the track.

Yeah

Yeah I agree, from what you said that play is probably using glitched backward shortcut.

That racer finihed within 1:40 right?  

Well it depends, in my opinion it is a bad thing :\ afterall this is not a shortcut meant to be there and it is just like cheating.

I don't really know, maybe he

I don't really know, maybe he just uses speed boosts during the right time ? Maybe he's a Hacker ? No one knows for real... Do you have a ... Screenshot ?

Hi

 Sorry...I don't have a pic...I was to busy racing then to take a screenshot (The boneknapper was practically on my tail)...I guess maybe the person was an experianced racer...(although I don't really understand the backwards thing....)

Hi

 Btw, is it possible for a Thunderdrum to beat a skrill with ease?

 

The stats on the Thunderdrum are a little higher...sort of...

Thunderdrum:

Speed: 10

Pitch: 7

Turn: 8

Acceleration: 6

 

Skrill:

Speed: 10

Pitch: 7

Turn: 7

Acceleration: 6

Possible

Yeah this is definitly possible :)

Thunderdrums are really great racing dragons except that they cannot turn very well (not as well as skrill). This shortcoming can be overcome by knowing when to turn by practice. 

Nowadays skrills are Technically thunderdrum has the same top speed as skrill so if the thunderdrum racer is experienced, it is absolutely possible for thunderdrum to win skrill with ease. 

AFterall, the skill of the racer is more crucial than the type of dragons they are racing with :P

I'm guessing he used a speed

I'm guessing he used a speed hack and the shortcut.  Pathetic of him.

"Into a Fantasy"

 

I have a dream

You are there

High above the clouds somewhere

Rain is falling from the sky

But it never touches you

You're way up high

 

No more worries

No more fears

You have made them disappear

Sadness tried to steal the show

But now it feels like many years ago

 

And I

I will be with you every step (Hey! Hey!)

Tonight

I found a friend in you

And I'll keep you close forever

 

Come fly with me (oh-oh oh-oh)

Into a fantasy (oh-oh oh-oh)

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

We can fly all day long

Show me the world

Sing me a song

Tell me what the future holds

You and me will paint it all in gold!

 

And I

I will believe your every word (Hey! Hey!)

'Cause I

I have a friend in you

We'll always stay together

 

Come fly with me (oh-oh oh-oh)

Into a fantasy (oh-oh oh-oh)

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

(Hey!)

 

And I

I will be with you every step

Tonight

I found a friend in you

And I keep you close forever

 

Come fly with me

Into a fantasy

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

Come fly with me (oh-oh oh-oh)

Into a fantasy (oh-oh oh-oh)

Where you can be

Whoever you want to be

Come fly with me

 

(Hey!)

 

 

"Where No One Goes"
 

Let the wind carry us
To the clouds, hurry up, alright
We can travel so far
As our eyes can see

We go where no one goes
We slow for no one
Get out of our way

I'm awake when up in the skies
There's no break up so high, alright
Let's make it our own,
Let's savor it

We go where no one goes
We slow for no one
Get out of our way

[2x]
We slow for no one
We go where no one goes

We go where no one goes

 

 

 

 

 

"Sticks And Stones"



Eyes open wide, blinded by the sun now
Orange and white, dark red, green and yellow
Rainbow colors! Do not hide, see the view! 
Step aside, go through!

Against the light, too strong, blow a fuse now
Everything bright, new songs, burning shoes
The look in your eyes! Break our bones into half! 
Scream and shout and do laugh!

Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)
Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Bursting through the seams
Open your eyes and see - You'll see

Inn um ermar, upp hryggjarsúluna
Yfir skóg, flæðir niður brekkuna
Allt upp í loft! Ég mun aldrei gleyma! 
Því ég mun aldrei!

Hleypur um, rífur, leysir flækjurnar
(Upp með rótum) Með blik í augum!
Stórmerki, undur, brjótum bein í sundur!

Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)
Let yourself... go (Oh Oh Oh)

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Bursting through the seams
Open your eyes and see

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Right beyond the trees
Show you how you'll be

Stay close to me
Count one, two and three
Up in through your sleeves
Bursting through the seams
Open your eyes and see - You'll see

Stay close to me... Count one, two, three
Up in your sleeves... You're right behind me
Stay close to me... Count one, two, three
Up in your sleeves... Burst through the seams

Open your eyes and see
You'll see (You'll see...)

 

 

 

Bilbo and Smaug 

 

 

Bilbo Baggins: I did not come to steal from you, O Smaug the Unassessably Wealthy. I merely wanted to gaze upon your magnificence, to see if you were as great as the old tales say. I did not believe them. 
Smaug: [strikes a pose] And do you, NOW? 
Bilbo Baggins: Truly songs and tales fall utterly short of your enormity, O Smaug the Stupendous... 
Smaug: Do you think flattery will keep you alive? 
Bilbo Baggins: No, no... 
Smaug: No, indeed! 
 
Smaug: Well, thief! I smell you, I hear your breath, I feel your air. Where are you? 
[moves in Bilbo's direction] 
Smaug: Where are you? 
[Bilbo runs, but Smaug hears his footsteps across the gold and follows] 
Smaug: Come now, don't be shy... step into the light. 
 
Smaug: There is something about you. Something you carry, something made of gold... but far more PRECIOUS... 
[Bilbo is assaulted by Sauron's eye and pulls off the ring] 
Smaug: [sees him] There you are, Thief in the Shadows! 
 
Thorin Oakenshield: Here! You witless worm! 
Smaug: YOU! 
Thorin Oakenshield: I'm taking back what you stole. 
Smaug: You will take NOTHING from me, dwarf. I laid low your warriors of old. I instilled terror in the hearts of men. I AM KING UNDER THE MOUNTAIN! 
Thorin Oakenshield: This is not your kingdom! These are dwarf lands. This is dwarf gold! And we will have our revenge! 
 
Smaug: You think you can deceive me, Barrel-Rider? You have come from Lake Town! This is some sort of scheme hatched between these filthy dwarves and those miserable tub-trading Lakemen, those snivelling cowards with their Longbows and Black Arrows! Perhaps it is time I paid them a visit! 
Bilbo Baggins: Oh, no... This isn't their fault! Wait! You can not go to Lake Town! 
Smaug: You care about them, do you? Good! Then you can watch them DIE! 
 
[Smaug is smothered with a deluge of molten gold] 
Smaug: [rises up] Revenge? REVENGE? I will show you revenge! 
[takes flight towards Lake Town] 
Smaug: I am fire! I am... death! 
 
[Smaug has been keeping the Arkenstone away from Bilbo throughout their talk, however he lets it fall within reach of Bilbo] 
Smaug: I am almost tempted to let you take it, if only to see Oakenshield suffer, watch it destroy him, watch it corrupt his heart and drive him mad... But I think not. I think our little game ends here! 
 
Smaug: Did you think I did not know this day would come, that a pack of canting dwarves would come crawling back to the Mountain? 
 
Smaug: You seem familiar with my name, but I don't remember smelling your kind before. Who are you and where do you come from, may I ask? 
Bilbo Baggins: I come from under the hill... 
Smaug: Underhill? 
Bilbo Baggins: ...and under the hill and over the hills my paths lead. And through the air! I am he who walks unseen! 
Smaug: Impressive titles. What else do you claim to be? 
[leans forward to smell Bilbo] 
Bilbo Baggins: Luck-Wearer... Ring-Winner... 
Smaug: Lovely titles... 
Bilbo Baggins: Barrel-Rider! 
Smaug: Barrels! Now that is interesting! 
 
Smaug: And what of your dwarf friends? Where are they hiding? 
Bilbo Baggins: Dwarves... No. No dwarves here. You've got that all wrong. 
Smaug: Oh, I don't think so, Barrel-Rider! They sent you in here to do their dirty work, while they skulk about outside! 
Bilbo Baggins: Truly, you are mistaken, O Smaug Chiefest and Greatest of All Calamities... 
Smaug: You have nice manners for a thief, and a LIAR! I know the smell and taste of dwarves, no one better! 
 
Smaug: The King Under the Mountain is dead! I took his throne, and ate his people like a wolf among sheep! I kill where I wish, WHEN I wish! My armour is iron, no blade can pierce me! 
 
Smaug: Oakenshield sent you in here for the Arkenstone, didn't he? 
Bilbo Baggins: No no no no no, I have no idea what you're talking about... 
Smaug: Don't bother denying it! I guessed his foul purpose some time ago! But it matters not. Oakenshield will fail... 
 
Smaug: You have been used, Thief in the Shadows. You were only ever a means to an end. The coward Oakenshield has weighed the value of your life and found it to be worth nothing...

I had to put some effort at the beginning of the race but the afert keeping up the pace i was able to beat him/her. I think that if i race against a really experienced racer with a Skrill he/she can beat me easly,but Thunderdrum for me are one of the best racers,my personal opinion.
