I don't think all people agree with this, but I know a few might, but I think that being able to throw fire in racing should not be alowed. It's really annoying when people start throwing fire at you before and in races, and it's really rude and disrespectful. Most times, people throw fire at you to be able to get ahead of you in an unfair way. If you need to use fire to win a race, then you shouldn't be racing at all if you are racing without honor and respect. This option should not be allowed in racing so people can race a little more peacefully and so they can enjoy the race. It's a sugestion but I ask people not to comment rudely on this topic, but please express your opinion.

I agree

Trolls love to fire at you before the race starts, sending you back before anybody even starts moving. If they're gonna get rid of firing, get rid of that.

I'm on the fence about this

I'm on the fence about this -- I mean, I definitely think that fire should at least be restricted in some ways, in all fairness of the game. A couple of days ago I had a player blasting fire at me at such rapid intervals that I could barely even move and my whole computer went into overheating trying to process that barrage of fiery pixels. 

 

I understand fire as a strategic thing, though, and I've used it once or twice to jar someone out of the path of a ring or something when I'm almost neck to neck with them and need that advantage. I feel like fire was put there for that reason and shouldn't really be viewed as "unfair", since it is a perfectly legitimate way to win, if not a little morally dicey. In any event, I try to avoid it as much as possible. 

 

I've always really viewed fire as a fair obstacle if used correctly, and everyone has their own tactics, but I really wish they'd limit shots to like three per race maximum or have it so that you'd actually have to manually aim instead of getting a guaranteed hit if you're in range. 

I completely understand how you feel, though.

You have a point

I personaly feel that fire in racing is unfair when its used like your computer over heat, but you do have a point. Some people do like to use the tactic for neck to neck, and we all should have an opinion. I don't like using fire because I think it's a bit unfair because I don't like having fire thrown at me. And you have another point in manual fire throwing and restricted anmounts of fire throwing.

With the exception of

With the exception of harmless shots at the wall while I'm waiting for the race to start, I generally don't fire unless I've been fired upon. You shoot me, especially before the race even starts, and I'll come after you with a very literal fiery vengeance. :P I agree it's annoying, even infuriating at times, but I don't think it should be removed. Perhaps a stricter limit, as Raxis stated above, a longer recharge period, or less of a setback for the targeted racer. But I do like that element of unpredictability it adds to the races and wouldn't want it gone altogether.

Returning was a mistake I don't intend to make again.

We feel the same

I usually do throw the same amout of fire back at a person who fired at me, just for a little revenge, and I do throw fire at the walls while waiting in races, and throw a little victory fire sometimes. Other wise, I don't like throwing fire at people.

Same here

Whenever people fire at me and my dragon and hit us before the race starts I will fire at them a ton during the race in hopes that they won't fire before the race again. The shooting fire at other players I have seen more as an act of desperation, though. A shot limit and no firing before the race starts would really be nice.

I do think fire should be stopped at the begining of a race. I used to fire A LOT. like ALOT ALOT. Now I kinda stopped a bit, fire like, once every 10 races? Sorry guys, its a habbit. But I really try not to fire at the people I know. I'll really try to stop. Sowwwwyyyyyy. XD

 

You might be able to tell by my last name XD

I 100% agree with this

 I 100% agree to take away the fire icon

I dont mean to brag okey, but when I was at the 1 place poeple shot me and then they went to the front and make me lose the race I feel so angry of losing with racers like that its so unlike me

I thought this game involves with caring, filled with with peace and fair well shoting people in race is not one of this.

No More Shoting at Race!!!

 

This is a raised law >:c

I like the fire and I randomly shoot people for fun if I'm in the mood.

Anywho when the majority of the players in a race shoot everyone I like to call that a sticky race, cause' no one can get anywhere xD

I personally do not like that I throw fireballs in a race but I usually use but only to those who choose to stop that way (I'm vindictive XD). 
 
I agree with some users and not think it should be seen as disrespectful as used legally and by that I mean to use it at the end of the count and not before. what the game makers would have not settled if it was not allowed. the use or not .. depends on each player.

In my opinion, firing is really not necessary to win the race. shooting the opponents and winning is unfair. its seems to me like cheating *shrugs* but thats just me.

Thunder run is only for racing. if they want to shoot, they can do frenzy instead (x I vote for the option "shooting must be removed from TR"

-_-

I feel like you're trying to start an arguement here -_-

I dont shoot unless I'm fired upon two or three times. Everyone here who raced with me knows it. If you want to talk about it, PM me. these kind of posts are rude and unnecessary. if I shot your cousin is true, then he must've fired at me first, or he would've just stayed in the starting like without moving an inch -.-

Defensive much? Haha.

Defensive much? Haha. Whatever you say ~

 

 

Btw. He was moving clumsily as he can't use the controls too well yet. Oh and please. Don't act all innocent. You know that it's aegon. You ranted at the aegon account without knowing the situation. I was "actually" to explain it to you in the forums but nope. You kept firing at my cousin. He's still too young to have an fb account and he doesn't have a tablet to play the game so I let him play on my account. I told him to be wary of shooting in the race. He is very clumsy (he's 8) but was trying. You on the other hand, kept shooting at him when he bumped and went through walls. And "then" you go to the forums, saying your anti-firing/shooting opinions on threads with this topic. 

 

I'm not trying to pick a fight. I'm not complaining about the firing either.

 

Just saying that maybe you should ease up on the hypocrisy of your statements.

 

Ayt.

Hmm. Your point is unbelievable. The player can shoot the other player only if he is in front of him. as you say, your cousin is only 8 and too clumsy and crashes on the walls. on the other hand, I dont think I'm worser than that to fall behind him. so how your accusing be possible? hmm? 

and btw, how do you know for sure that I'm the one who shot him?

Oh Hattori, Hattori, Hattori, you adorable little kepet.

 

You know that if you're faster than another player you'd overlap them and you can shoot them from behind if they're lagging behind. Stop your little attempt at facades it's pitiful. 

I was in the same room, I was doing something else so my attention was halved. I remember it though. You said these words exactly.

 

"Why even bother playing if you don't even take this seriously? What a disappointment" my cousin called me and I saw you shoot at him when he was on the other side of the wall. You and my cousin raced thrice. I was also put off by your attitude but I shrugged it off. Again, the only reason I brought this up now is because of your laughable acting. 

 

But sure Hattori, whatever you say. I have no reason to lie about this but alright~

Enjoy your "games"~

Listen.

  • First, stop talking like I'm your kid and overexaggerating my comments.
  • Second, posting Gifs doesnt mean you're genious and what you're saying is right. I had a doubt before that maybe I shot your cousin by accident. but now with what you said, I'm sure its a pure LIE. I dont know what intention you're having in this make up story.
  • and third, I DID NOT shot you or your cousin. I dont have any reason to. If you are trying to spoil my good name or something, you should try better than this. Everyone here knows I don't shoot in races. I'm AGAINST shooting. That is my point. And you don't have any right to say otherwise in my opinion. If you think that I'll shoot you in race, you don't have to race with me again. But if you're still going to keep complaining, I.Dont. Care. End of arguement.

Hmm... Let's see...

Disrespectful? Yes.

Cheap? Yup

Annoying? LOL. So True.

 

So I'm all of those above, eh? Yeah, I use Fireshot A REAL LOT. During the 'Zippleback Glory Days' and during the 'Clash Of Clans Tournament'.

 

Here are my reasons:

- During the Zippleback Days, Zippleback has a ridiculous level of speed. Finish the second lap in the Wooly Canyon and they are already leaving the racing stage in the first place. I see none other ways of winning against them unless I use my fire like a totally-desperate-loser-cockroach. Yes, desperate. And what happen after I use it? it works. I slow them down and win it although sometimes I don't. Cheap win? Yup.

 

However, after we complained about the unequal speed thing to the admin, they fixed it. Every dragon's speed is equal again or close. So, I stop my shooting strategy again and play normal.

 

- During the Clash Of The Clans Tournament, my target is on the high speed racer + Golden Saddle like Hattori. Well, he's too fast  and I keep losing. I always looked forward to race against him but I want to win as well. So again, in desperate move I use my Fireshot again. And again, sometimes I win, sometimes no. Until I found something strange where I didn't shoot him at all and another player beat him. I asked about his Golden Saddle whether it gives him speed or no as in a glitch. And I found out that his Golden Saddle sometimes gives him speed and sometimes no, another glitch I guess. So I immediately stop my shooting and gracefully accept the outcome of the rest of our races.

 

And unlike any shooter, I don't shoot before the start of the race. Instead, I'm the one who was being shot at. In one of the race against five other racers, ALL FIVE OF THEM continuously shoot me 'till the end of the walls before the start of the race. I don't find it annoying anymore, I merely laughed it off and beat all of them without any shooting. Even if they shoot me, I won't.

 

...Sorry, I have to disagree with the fire button being taken out. If the admin did, well, I won't complained then.

But I do will support the idea of limiting the amount of fireshot in a race, so I give my suggestions here for the fairness of every shooters and non-shooters.

- The SoD team can limit the amount of fireshot down to ONE for all racers. If you're being shot at, he/she won't be able to shoot fire again for the whole of the race in that stage and you can have your revenge anytime you want.

- Alternatively, no rider can shoot fire on anyone. Disable the fireshot button before the start of the race and open them again only after the race starts.

- Another alternative, if the player shoots, his score will automatically default to only +5 rewards if he won the first place.

 

I don't agree with taking out the fireshot feature in the race. I don't use them for now, but I will use it again if I really need it in the possible future tournament. Sorry but fireshot is one of my strategy when I need it. Personally, I want to see my dragon being able to breathe out fire even during the race. Am I worst? I will leave it to all of you to judge. Maybe I am.

And again, if all of you agree along with the admin to take it out, I won't say anything and just keep playing.

 

~Spoiler ahead~

In HTTYD 2, the rest of the gang are 'teaming' (kind-of) up against Astrid during the race and Stoick still let it go. Astrid do get annoyed but they still go along with the unfair race.

I'm really happy it is

I'm really happy it is possible to talk about this in a respectful manner: these opinion threads usually end up in fire (just to keep to the topic). So first of all my praises to the speakers;)

As for my opinion, first remember that this is a VIKING competition: fairness is sort of underestimate in their culture and by all means a solid survival-of-the-fittest based concept.

Second, some races showed me that shooting can be used in an highly appreciable (though nerve-racking) way, that is when a single shot makes you win the race. Then it came to me shooting can be part of a tactic and a weapon not in conflict with brain-work.

So, I quite agree to what has been said by Primus now and Raxis before. To enhance the tactical meaning of shooting, it should be limited to a few shots per race, or otherwise it should cause a more effective drop of energy. I won't suggest, however, to introduce a manual aiming: that'll make things too difficult and moreover, some players still use mouse click to boost/slow down and they'll be penalized.

I guess I see what you mean when the manual thing -- I was just thinking that they could use the "F" shortcut, but it occurred to me that not everyone uses it.

So what you're saying is...

So what you're saying is...

you don't want dragons to act like dragons?

And please. don't act like you never shot at anyone. Either someone started it or you shot them back.

Besides, it's part of the game AND the films+show. 

 

What's next, you're gonna complain that shooting fire at sheep faced targets is being mean to the sheep?

 

What's next? You gonna call the PETA? For how they used the sheep in the 2nd film?

 

You guys are being silly. Oh and just a small example. There's a certain leader of a popular clan that shot at my dragon when it was being clumsily played by my little cousin. My account got muted for some reason weeks before so my cousin couldn't explain in the lounge, as well as I when he told me about it,  yet he kept bullying my little cousin with shots. AND THEN he posted here about how wrong it is to shoot at people during races.

 

Do I think shooting should be removed because of one incident? No, of course not. I think that you people should just let it be already. It is also a fun strategic part of the game. The shots are already limited enough. Sure you can limit the shots before the race but firing within the race is fine by me. It makes the race interesting, no? :3

 

There are more things that the admins/programmers/fixers should focus on, like bugs, lags, server errors and such.

 

 

Peace

Sorry guys but I have to agree with AegonTheConquerer on this one.

 

yeah shooting in races can get really annoying, but its apart of being a dragon rider/trainer! We can't expect our dragons to behave all the time xD 

I do not class "Shooting in racing" as cheating, because i don't see the different in players using Short Cuts to players who shoot.

 

for me shooting in races can be both annoying and challenging, usually if i get shot i can easily make the ground up i lost, which any fast rider should be able to do. I never shoot (unless shot at first) shooting just adds excitement! makes racing that much more challenging, but that's just me.

I know..

Fire isn't usually a problem for me, but that moment when you are 1st place and you get hit by a random fireball the second you are about to go through a ring and miss it...and then descend to 4th place after everyone passes through the ring you missed.. (True story)

Yes, I agree. Fire in racing seems like an unfair way to get ahead, since it shows nothing about your racing ability, only your capacity to press F multiple times in a row. Racing should, in my opinion at least, be more of a representation of your ability, not an excuse to throw fireballs. (Please note that I'm not trying to be disrespecful to anybody; this is just my opinon.)

Everytime someone shoots fire

Everytime someone shoots fire at me, my dragon instantly stops.

A solution could be, in the next update, include Thunder Run penalties for shooting fire, like one less trophie, or just disable fire for the racing.

I totally very strongly argee with ya, and it is so cheating plus annoy. Before we start racing, the random person shoot fire at me, and when  I dash to the first place, it always shoot me. I getting ticked off by random person that I begin to shoot back, and now I am in second place because of it's temper is madness -_- ( UGHHHHH!!! )

I still agree with hatt though, even thought that shoting in race is like what dragons are all about (firing, and could hurt others), its just not sportive and unfair. The right thing to do with racers is to try how to catch up with others, like learning shortcuts. Shoting others in races is the wrong thing to do, if they dont wanna be fair so beat it. Even thought that people shot others and they win doesnt mean that he/she has become a champion >:C

Ok, let me stop you all there...

I have been following this thread since tais26 put it up. I have not posted before because who want's to get into an argument like this? Just to let you all know, I do shoot in races sometimes, when I'm really desperate. It doesn't make me a terrible person or a cheater, and I don't even hit anyone with my fire anyway! (I'm a really bad shot when flying) Want to know why I didn't state my point earlier?

It makes Thunder Run less fun!

If you browse the forum, you will find, literaly, HUNDREDS of threads on this topic! Why does it matter?! If you are creating a thread in hopes that the producers will change something, good luck; I've been doing some research and I've found that they ask for our suggestions, but rarely do they change something that's already embedded in the game! Do you relize how difficult it is to change the way a world wide computer game acts in a certain place? EXTREMLY!!! I don't even want to think about how many codes and image programs they used just to make our Vikings walk! And it takes a really long time, so if they did change something, it might take weeks- or even months- to see it happen.

So why do we argue?

I really have no idea. i don't see the point in creating a topic just to complain, unless it's a suggestion for ways they can add to and improve the game, such as with glitches and serious bugs, or flying and track suggestions. Here is what I'm getting from this thread alone: someone starts the forum, than all these people post their different opinions, and then on one fatful day a lot of people who posted here are on, they read each others posts, then we start agreeing to disagree, and then one thing leads to another, and we start pointing fingers and calling each other cheaters and all sorts of other names! (Oh, I've got to take a breath, that was a long sentence!) Anyway, if we are just going to talk about something that is going to make us all unhappy towards each other, WHY BOTHER TALKING ABOUT IT?! It's the Clan Tournaments, all over again! We are all riders, racers, sharpshooters, and most of all, dragon trainers! So what if a few of us are a little fire happy? If you give HTTYD fans and gamers huge, flying, FIREBREATHING reptiles, what do you think they are going to do? In conclusion, if playing Thunder Run is just going to drive the forum- and the School of dragons- apart...

Why bother racing at all?

So, just to warn you, if there is anymore finger pointing, you might find an large, angry, and violently pink Monstrous Nightmare on your doorstep. (Peony snorts and bears her teeth)

My character:

Name:

Emma Strongarmor

Titals: Emma the Artistic, Emma the Insane

Age: 15 (almost 16)

Gender: Female

Appearance:

Long golden brown hair, tied back into a tight ponytail, with large hazel eyes and long eyelashes. Her skin is tanned, and almost always stained with soot, paint, or gunpowder. Out in public, she wears a pink t-shirt with an armored fur skirt and brown fuzzy boots, and has a surplus of satchels and belt pouches, along with a battered black helmet with curled horns. When working, she wears a leather apron with her hair tied into a bun and a white tunic with leather breeches under it. Has a black tattoo shaped like a celtic knot on her left collar bone.

Personality:

One part genius, two parts mad scientist, and all artistic curiousity, Emma is nothing if not interesting. When she was little, she had a fascination with how dragons breathed fire, even when they were attacking the village. When her parents were killed in the Red Death attack, it only served to stoke the fires of her inventive mind, leading her to invent near impossible machines so to better defend her home and everyone she holds dear. Unfortunately, Emma is also a bit of a pyromaniac, and has a dangerous attraction to explosives. This causes her Fellow Berkians to give her a wide berth, and ultimately leads her to isolate herself entirely from the village. She wants to be accepted for who she is, and not ridiculed for creative impulsives she cannot always control.

Abilities: Swordsman, scientific genius and stratagist, dragon trainer, always keeps explosives on hand.

Bouncies by Hattori!

My dragons, Peony and Spindleheart!

Name: Peony

Breed: Monstrous Nightmare (Southern)

Age: Broadwing

Level: 20

Gender: Female

Appearance: Chocolate brown, with Hot-Pink details and a pale pink underbelly. Has a small scar at the end of her tail from Dagur the Deranged's axe.

History:

Was born on the Island of Crete, but escaped when Drago Bludvist took her flock. Eventually made her way to Berk, where she was captured and put in the Academy. Emma was the only one who could get through to her, after one of Hiccup's attempts at training her went wrong. Ever since, the two have been like sisters. She is hot tempered, stubborn, and ferocious, giving her a rotten reputation amoung the villagers, but she also hides a nuturing and over-protective maternal instinct when it comes to her rider and her adoptive "Nephew", Spindle. She and Nina Haddock's Deadly Nadder, Darrien, have a competitive friendship, but she distrusts any other dragon or rider, especialy Stormfly and Astrid. She also has a grudge against Hiccup, but she'll follow his orders when they make sense.

Abilities: Copy-Cat fighting, glowing pink patterns, the usual bursting into flames

Status: Warrior of her small flock

Hiccup attempting to train Peony in the Arena. Peony: "Not happening, Twig Arms..."

(Edit by Sephira)

Name: Spindleheart, though often just Spindle

Breed: Whispering Death

Age: Shortwing

Level: 12

Gender: Male

Appearance

Stormy gray scales, with turquoise spines and a sunset orange underbelly. Wears a set of headgear that resembles goggles.

History:

Was found underneath Berk as an egg, along with two other eggs. Hiccup, knowing Emma had little to no fear of Whispering Deaths, entrusted one of the eggs to her, after much reassurance that she'd take good care of it. Spindle's personality is shy, sweet, and adorably awkward, with little to no social skills. He often has trouble speaking to the other Whispers he was found with, and is deathly afraid of Hiccup's new Whisper, Shredder. Not knowing any other family, he maintains a stubborn belief that Emma is his mother and Peony his aunt (though he can't really say her name right, so he always calls her "Auntie PeeNee"), even as he discovers his past and lineage. Being slightly more sensitive to sunlight than most, Emma made him a pair of tinted goggles so he can fly during the day. He's an overachiever, and always gets depressed at his poor racing skills, but excells at target and shooting games, thank's to Peony's patient training.

Abilities: Spine-Shot, Tail-Whip, Drilling, very good swimmer

Status: Scout of his small flock

 

Name: (coming soon)

Asian dragon by Glacecia!

 

Hong Taiyang (紅太陽), or "Red Sun"

This dragon is very proud, strict, ordered, and often acts like a bit of a snob... okay, maybe a lot of a snob. But he's also very willing to learn, and knows how to read and understand several languages. He enjoys watching things be created, and loves the structure of the scientific process. He will sometimes give you a message written in a foreign language and watch intently while ou try to puzzle out the translation.

Oriental Serpentfang by NightmareRebuff!

 

Deathknight

Cold and emotionless, Deathknight is a sadistic maniac who makes Dagur look like Sigmund Freud. He doesn’t care about anyone or anything except inflicting suffering and sustaining his own existence. He’s become a bit of a boogeyman: a nightmarish creature that stalks the deep forests in winter, toying with it’s prey, then ripping it to shreds or dragging it back to it’s lair to kill slowly and painfully. It’s hard to believe such a vicious dragon could have a shred of honor, but he does. If someone manages to defeat him in battle, Deathknight actually won’t attack that person/dragon again if they venture into his territory, but don’t expect him not to destroy you if you try and take him on a second time…

Oh, and by the way...

If anyone thinks that I am a bad flying because I don't often win at TR, try meeting me at the Wilderness (Or Berk, or the School) and racing me on one of the tracks I created myself! You'd be thinking otherwise pretty soon...
