I feel it’s pretty safe to say that next year has arrived and that gives a good reason to inquire - has there been any progress on above mentioned alternative means for players to target specific Gem Dragons? Any news at all?
On a different note, with 20k gnome eligible non-vault-weekend games reached, this is how Dragonite Gnomes look…
When will they enable us to target a specific dragon boss? I thought they said next year; well, we are already in next year, and three months have passed and nothing. I hope they do what they promised.
It is depressing.
We’d sooner see a dead horse pulling a cart than…could you, dear CX persons (all four of you), pool together all of your resources and get some status update? It’s been about six months since the original post (and even more since the first day players been saying that dragon egg system is frustrating, unsmart) it is next year and next year is ticking on…just because one player out of 93 is okay with buying dragonite up to the point of bankruptcy and craft duplicate eggs doesn’t mean that the remaining 92 can be blissfully ignored…or does it?
Yes, I know - it’s a longshot and naïve to hope for an answer, history teaches us that. (For example, a certain customer’s experience guru said they’d tackle officially-announced-but-as-of-yet-never-actually-released (in short - blatant lie to players) improved daily deal issue first thing next meeting around New Year and then successfully vanished from that topic without a trace to be found.)
But two can play and have fun at ignoring-poking game.
I expected to wake up this morning, come here and see the good news that targetable egg crafting update has been finished, tested, done & dusted and will be pushed live within next moments as it is high time for that…now I feel confused.
With another month and about 1/3rd of “next year” gone, is there any progress achieved or is it just another ostrich sandbox for our excellent team?
I, personally, don’t need targetable gem dragons - as you are very well aware -, but would surely appreciate if other players were not left at the mercy of random.
As the original poster @OminousGMan seems to have abandoned the forums altogether for quite some time, perhaps somebody else (like, for example, @Bramble or @Jeto, or @Kafka) is courageous enough to pick up the baton and, mayhap, provide waiting community with some kind of follow-up?
There are threads like
popping up once in a while, so people are still interested in this particular topic.
Unfortunately, one always runs the risk of having to ban oneself on dev-bashing grounds if it turns out that all was just wishful thinking and no actual work has been done (like the still ongoing testing for improved daily deals which, let me remind, was officially announced in patch notes, never actually released and all attempts to touch the topic have resulted in “talk-to-the-hand” from the powers in charge).
By the way, a hint was given in original post that dungeon doors should be truly random now…how non-tampered does this look?
keep in mind that the qualities you’re hoping for not neccessarily are the strong suits of any of the people you tagged in your posting. picking up the baton sounds like work. but you can count on the running (away) part.
67% of the time, technically. (5 unique dragons across 15 eggs = 10 dupes across 15 eggs = 10/15 = 66.66…%) Regardless, after 15 eggs a set of only 5 different dragons is actually quite common (at about 32%).
If you know which dates you crafted particular dragons, I can log that too. Because then I can compile data like this:
The lower table is how many eggs (on average) it takes us users to get a specific number of dragons in the set. According to everyone who posts, it’s taken longer than average to get a new dragon (except for the full set, which is currently faster than average).
Will they? I’m not really confident. If no one brings it up again, they’ll casually forget to do anything about it. See: every other bug this year.
Should they? … In a non-dysfunctional company, yeah, they should since they said they would. Distinctly promising something, going radio silent, then going teehee sorry, nevermind when the duration of the promise nears its deadline is the worst possible way to handle it. At least cancel it early before dragging people’s expectations for the entire year.
Coincidentally, 30 dragonite a week from Stage 15 and 100 dragonite with a lantern from completing the Underspire doesn’t really amount to much for the general audience who might not be in a position to get any of that.
