Number one: Is it normal to see players in Thunder Run Racing teleporting?

I always seem to see a few in game, but the teleporting is not consistant enough to call it hacking. It could be my internet, but I'm just wondering if anyone else sees this.

 

Number 2: Does teh racing armor for the character really make a difference?

 

Thanks for any help given.

Here are your results! You would ride a...

 

Scauldron!

These dragons are aggressive and hostile on the outside, but protective and loyal on the inside. They treat their owners with respect and are very kind when they get to know you. You guys would make a great team!

Thanks Stormcutter12 c:

On Q.1. If you see someone is teleporting constantly AND the final time is altered, then yes, that person was using speed hack.

If the person starts racing even before the countdown ended, then that person is also a confirmed hacker. 

 

On Q.2. I see you asked this question in our race just now, sorry I didn't get the chance to answer you. 

I have once compared racing with all of the racing armor (clothing) and racing with only basic clothing, and honestly, I don't see that much differences in the race.

But yes, there are dragons that are better in races with some saddles on them.

I concer :) If a racer starts

I concer :) If a racer starts before the countdown finishes, it could also be a glitch that is carried over from their last game if they used a speed boost before the race. It does not nessesarily mean that they are a hacker.

 

I think there's a glitch right now that makes some racers teleport. I've seen people posting that in the forums, namly some in accusation of LionWill and others just in confusion. I'm not sure if this is a site-wide glitch coming on to players, but it usually happens in groups. So if you see a lot of people telelporting as a group, it might be because of a glitch or internet issues.

 

However, if you only see a single player that keeps teleporting even though it is obvious by looking at the map that they were way behind you before, and that they always seem to be one step ahead of you, then it is very possible that they are a hacker. You should take a screenshot (or video if possible) of the time they finished the race.

 

As for Armor or racing gear, I do feel a difference (maybe because I'm not as good at racing as some pros). When I wore the bonenapper helmet (it has no stat boosts) the racing seems slower and I'm just a bit slower than other opponnts wearing racing gear. When I wore my racing helmet again, my race seems back to normal. So yes, I think there's a little influence by the racing gear, but you don't nessesarily have to use it to win races, as long as you are experianced and good at racing :)

Banshee. Despite her dark look, she's a fun loving dragon who likes rainbows and skittles. My represensitive dragon (me if I was a dragon :D). Drawn by Changeling. Blinkie by Mightnightmare and editted by me. Amazing egg animation by Rasvim1313. Toothless gif made by the awesome Reiraku (what would the OCs do without you). Blinkie by me (I forgot to change her eyecolour)

 

Catalyst, the Chemical Magician <3 Spicy and unpredictable, this nightfury creates a backstory of his own. Not that he'd share it. My OC drawn by Reiraku

Drawn by me. Description by the amazing Reiraku.

A sreech. A howl in the dark. A keening cry in the depths of the night. This was all that could be said about the destruction he left in his wake. A name? He had none. Was it important? A strong opponent. This was what he desired. Perhaps somewhere deep down inside, he simple longed to be stopped. But he yearned, and he fought. For what, it didn't matter. Alone as he had always been, he didn't care what became of those he defeated, only that they ended up dead after his passing. If they could not best him, they did not deserve to live. Even now, he stalked through darkness, tracking his next prey. The blood on his claws would not wash off, but he did not want it to. His soul was a cacophony of chaos, and his body an instrument of death.

Was it the result of some twisted past? Nay. He enjoyed the killing. He found sport in the shedding of blood. It was he that was twisted, cleaving a path of darkness into the future. He twisted his own past to justify his future. His mother, father, and the rest of the clutch into which he was born had been very caring. As he had grown, he found that, so too, did his resentment of them. When he grew large enough, he attacked his brothers and sisters, tasting their blood for the first time. And he relished the taste. His parents he made quick work of as well. It wasn't enough. He belonged to nothing and no one. He was beholden to none. He was free and he was dangerous.

 

No dragon was safe from his urges. He took no interest in the lives of others; only in their deaths. In this way he lived, fought, and grew, fighting and killing anything that appeared before him. Growing strong feasting on the thrill of each kill.

 

 

Storm Chasers are highly energetic speed-loving dragons. They love to swim in fast currents and fly with strong wind of the highlands. Storms are no problem to them. They follow the storm until it subsides, taking any food left from the destruction, which is sometimes from viking villages. Storm Chasers have incredible sensor that they could predict a storm coming and its path. 

Gender: Male

Personality: Naturally curious, likes to flick his tongue out when he's unsure of something. Gentle soul, loves belly rubs

Backstory: While out on a hunt with my dragons for wild forest animals, Catalyst and Banshee was playing as usual, and this time it seems they were play fighting each other. They look like a giant rolling ball of tumbleweed in the distance, if you ignore their playful dragon growls and nips. Shaking my head, I spent the next few hours collecting all the animal feathers and designs I needed, and on the way I caught a rabbit for dinner too. Just as I began walking back to my dragons, I heard a loud, angry growl in the distance that sounded nothing a small animal can make. I quickly rushed to where the sound was coming from, horrified to find that it was in the direction of where I last saw Banshee and Catalyst biting each other's ears (which was kind of cute, and made me stop for a while to watch them). Just as i got to the clearing, I saw Banshee and Catalyst in defensive stance, both growling at a male dragon that's semi-hidden in the bushes with what seem to be a bruised nostrel. They must've rolled into the bushes sometime during their fight and fell onto the dragon's nostrel, waking him up and surprising him! Approaching the dragon slowly, with my hands in front of me, I told my dragons to backdown as I tried to calm him down. After what seems like hours, the male dragon seemed to be calm enough to approach me with curiosity instead. I realized with a start that it was actually a Stormchaser, who seemed to have hurt it's legs somehow as it was slowly limping out of the bush. Carefully taking the shark pieces of rock from his foot (i wonder how he got hurt), the Stormchaser sniffed it's foot and tested it, before happily nudging my hand with it's head. I gave him a good scratch under his chin, and packed everything up ready to move back home when it seemed to follow us and didn't want to leave. Even as i rode Catalyst in the skies, the Stormchaser wasn't far behind, and I ended up adding him into out dragon family, and named him Peach. Design by ScarfyWings

 

Carnage, the Symbiote Night Fury. One of the rare nightfury species, he serves no one and nothing. Though I suspect he holds a much kinder side...

Drawn by Kyore. PIxel arts by Wutend Bonfire :D

 

This fiery night fury can summon and control all types of weather. Storm is from the deep south and will submit to no dragon or human. As she can control whether the skies are safe, even the alphas are afraid of her. Drawn by skypeoplephoenix732

 

"If you get any of what this skrill is dripping on you, you'll start seeing all kinds of things that aren't there." Toxin, the goofball that doesn't realize everybody knows she's stealing food from the pantry because there's pink goo everywhere she goes. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Tigger, the speed stinger. Not much for brains, but what he lacks in brains he makes it up with a large stomach. Drawn by Reiraku

Hong Cha (or Red tea in chinese), the chinese dragon. Drawn by Glacecia

 

Todachi was only a hatchling when his clan was destroyed and killed by humans in front of his eyes. The only survivor of a clan of forest dwellers, he has to fend for himself since a young age. He's nothing special, but he has a desire to survive which drives him forward.  When a viking found him in a cave while wounded in an aereal fight, Todachi helped the human tend to their wounds even though he still harbors hatered for them, because on the inside he has a gentle heart. The human was forced away the day after, and he still refuses to let anyone inside his cave save for the wounded. You would be lucky to see this him with your very eyes, as his natural camuflage makes him blend perfectly to his surrondings. He says he's not currently interested in any SPAM at the moment. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Carna, the hybid offspring of the Nightfury and Skrill. Likes to eat smores and snuggles in the fireplace. Only appears occationally when hungry, so no one knows where she is most of the time. Drawn by Reiraku

 

Adopted from Siren-Spirit

Morvan, the Dark Dragon. No one knows where he came from, and not many wants to know in fear of being brutally mutilated. The crimson blood on his scales is enough to tell even the blind to not mess with him. He never shows weakness no matter the enemy, but they know that he has some extensive history before he became known and the Dark Dragon. The wings along already hold a much more heavier burden to tell...

 

Crystalis, the rare white nightfury. She had a warm and kindhearted personality, and loves to collect jewels of all kind. Her scars are a mystery that she never tells. Drawn by skrillfan

 

Skylar, the nightfury born with the lightning mark. Drawn by Scoubidous

 

Gender: Male

Personality: Brave, Serious, Loyal, Strong Fighter

Special Notes: Scar, Take with care

Name: Kenshin (do you get the reference? :D)

Bio: Once known as one of the deadly assassins of the old age, now Kenshin is a recluse on the journey to live a peaceful life. However, he encounters a lot of old enemies and rivals that haven't forgotten of his bloody past, but he will not give up the simple life.

hmm, as far as I observe about the speed boost getting carried over into the next race, the only thing I always see was just a speed boost at the beginning of the race. I myself has done some testing on using speed boost right before the finish line and the next races always starts normally after the countdown finished. 

The only players I see that start racing before the countdown finished are only the speed hackers (with the final time altered, of course..).

Hey! Not sure about the teleporting thing, but as for the armour... I've been saving up my gems for a while now, and the other day I splurged on clothes. I got the dragon riders shirt, pants, and mask, and for me, it seems to have made quite a difference in my racing. I generally use my whispering death, Midnight Madness, for racing, and he is a little faster, and definately a LOT more agile. It may be different for others, but that's what I've found. :)
