Because I can hardly ever get a lobby to start.

 

Are there times we should all get on to help each other out?  In a sense "party up" as other games have that mechanic?

Tracking!

Tracking!

Edit: My personal experience says 3:30 central time. There are usually 15-20 racers.

Just stopping by...

Hey HTTYD!

I'm glad you asked! Actually, when you first join a waiting room in TRR (Thunder Run Racing) you join something that I call a "server." However, unless you are very lucky, this TRR server is more or less empty.  Thus, you need to join the server that all the racers have congregrated too.  To do this, push the button to go to the single player track.  Then, (you can race if you want, but I don't) go back to the main lobby.  Then go back to the single player race tracks, then go back to the main lobby.  Repeat this until the amount of people waiting in the mmo lobby is sizeable (typically a scroll bar indicates that it is the correct lobby). It takes me about a dozen times before I reach the right server, so you may need to enter and exit quite a few times.

I'm sorry if this is complicated, if you have further question, fell free to ask.

-Kaizar

In addition to what Kai said, there's also one other way you can get on an active server in TRR. Make sure you're on an active server outside of TRR, then enter TRR. That's what I do and typically that works for me, I end up on an active TRR server. Sometimes I have to go in single player and back to multiplayer outside TRR several times before I get on an active server but I eventually find one.

Looking for a clan? Check out the Isle of Gazoo Clan Recruitment thread to see if Isle of Gazoo is right for you. If you're interested in joining, let me know even if all the spots in the clan are full. I might be able to find a spot for you. If you put in a join request in game and you don't reply on the Recruitment thread, if you could please put a brief message stating you've seen the Recruitment thread on the forum instead of the standard "Hi. Please let me join your clan." that would be greatly appreciated. :)

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

(Poem from the Disney movie Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure)

About Me:

 

The first and most important thing you should know about me is that I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I enjoy studying the Bible and learning from it. I live by Bible standards and strive to apply Bible principles in my life everyday. Of course, I'm not perfect and would never claim to be. However, when I make a mistake I do my best to learn from it and then do my best not to repeat it. I apologize when neccessary and accept correction where it's needed. I happily talk about my religion and beliefs with others but I don't force it on them. If they aren't interested or tell me they don't want to talk about it, I respect that.

For more information on Jehovah's Witnesses, for answers to your Bible-based questions, or for information on a varity of topics, some of which  include: animals, countries, how to deal with bullies, how to have a happy family life, how to make real friends, and depression, please visit jw.org.

The fact that this thread

The fact that this thread exists is just sad and proof that this game is dying and running out of players.

SoD needs to get their game together or it won't survive another year for real.
SoD can be a great game with a lot of potential but their developers and managers just chose to do it dirty and sleep on SoD #ThisIsWhyWeCantHaveNiceThings

But ANYWAY:
1. TRR is most alive throughout the times Europe and America are awake
2. Always find the "IPad server" in TRR, the most crowded always filled with random newbs. Everyone goes there.

hear ye, hear ye

a player who has a point

 

I remember in 2016ish that if u went to TRR, EVERY SERVER was filled with racers. sure, they were all experts and i was jus there like "well, time to die", but yea. they were so many ppl racin

 

but anyways, do what Kaizar and HPowers said. It usually works for me.

 

if not, Fireball Frenzy can be a good second-place choice for earning trophies (although it's such a gamble to play the broken game)
