  • Coming Soon, Update 2.80


    What’s New in v2.80?


    New Gifting Feature
    • Added Value Pack Gifting
      • Players can now gift Value Pack purchases to other players.
      • Limited to packs that do not have unique rewards (such as dragons or limited-quantity items).
      • You may opt to gift anonymously, or with recognition.
      • Show your support and make someone’s day!




    Gameplay
    • Improved messaging for when wars result in a tie
      • In the event that a war ends in a tie with less flames than 250-250, victory will then be decided upon which team had the greater number of successful defenses. Otherwise, a “Tie” will result with only the lower-ranked team gaining rating.
    • Poison Damage Rebalance
      • Ballista towers and damage over time spells have been underutilized. After further review this is because they are less effective than many other options, and therefore we have made balance adjustment damage over time towers and spells.
    Bug Fixes
    • Fixed a graphical issue with the Battlecry spell causing some dragons to burst into flames.
    • Fixed a graphical issue where the Evasion spell would fail to display when cast.
    • Fixed an issue in the Tutorial where players were unable to collect provided Egg Tokens if they failed to follow the tutorial steps.
    • Fixed an issue where players would be notified that their Bookmarks were full when in fact they were not.
    • Fixed an issue with Crystalline Shield where after multiple uses in the same attack the dragon would unintentionally take increased damage.
      • This change also fixes this issue for Snowdrop.
    UI Bug Fixes and Improvements
    • Fixed an issue where the Dragon Perch level number was misaligned with the icon in Tactical View.
    • Fixed a scaling issue with menu buttons when trying to remove Runes from Monuments.
    • Fixed an issue with UI elements overlapping in the Dragons’ Den preventing players from being able to rename their dragons.
    • Fixed a scaling issue with the “new portrait” notification button.
    • Fixed an issue with some keyboards covering the instructions when you name yourself.
    • Fixed an issue where the button to upgrade the builder hut would highlight incorrectly when short on the required resources.
    • Fixed an issue where “Defend Teammate” would appear when attacked instead of “Defend Yourself” following a player name change.
    • Removed “Breedable” text and icon from dragons (Skarr, Necroth, Nightshade) incorrectly labeled as such.
    • Egg currency in Research Hall is now highlighted in red when the player does not have the required amount of eggs.
    • Fixed portrait scaling in the avatar menu.
    • Improved Advanced Team Name search functionality
    • Language localization improvements.
    World Map Beta
    • Improved animations during ship battle (ambient dragons attacking ships, ship sinking animation, etc.)
    • Added the ability to link to continents in chat.
    • Fixed issues around World Map attacks showing wood/food in results screen instead of gold.
    • Fixed an issue with Android keyboards malfunctioning when trying to rename continents on the World Map.
    • Improved the readability of ship health bars to help better distinguish allies from enemies.
    • Improved hit boxes for tapping on ships.
    • Added support for elemental totems.

    Can you give a bit more detail about the war tie changes? As I read it, you are saying if a war is tied with less than 250-250, say 245-245, *successful* defenses is the tiebreaker. Is that different than the current "active" defenses metric? I assume the current 250-250 tiebreaker system is unchanged?

    Can you give any details as to the scope of the buff to ballistas in particular? What DoT spells are affected? I suspect Gloom Clouds, any others?

    Appreciate the bug fixes, especially getting Crystalline Shield debugged swiftly.

      I just got word that this update will actually include adjustment of poison damage at lower levels too, so lower level players' dragons will still die slowly, but a little less painfully than before to Ballistas.

    I miss the point of the current food shortage has been fixed.
    When I read through the last player's request, the most requested change is to correct the food shortage.
    I do not see a reaction.
    Please give a clear answer.
    Yes, we will change something or be silly and say that remains so.

      Actually, the most requested change was to remove World Map, at 45 likes. Adjusting food rates was also requested, but was 4th place, not first. This was discussed during the livestream today.

      Yes, and I notice the world map hasn't been sunk like we wanted either! Both of these are important game deficiencies that need to be addressed, and neither have been.

    Has the chat/connection issue been addressed?. Getting real tired of having to quit game and relaunch it 12-20+ times to get it working

      thanks for the reply Jared, hopefully it's your main priority as it's almost as bad as the sync errors we were having.

      Some days it's only once or twice other days I can keep trying for 2+ hours and not get on. Likewise with team mates.

  • #5
    Thanks for the fast respond.
    I hope everyone looks the same way.
    My feeling is that the food always close,
    Inc. Always too little.
    Almost all players drag dragons with which are not trained since the available food is used for the most important.

      Basically another useless update since you didn't address any of the players requests, and we can expect tons of new bugs and glitches like after every single update. What a poor show from PG

        Thanks for the detailed Patch Notes.

        PG doesn't want to enable Ruby gifting in fear of exploitation, yet they enable Value Pack gifting.
        I don't know what kind of hacks and cheats are out there but is this safe? Is there a limit to how many packs can be sent per day?
        I fear people will use other accounts or devices to send hacked Value Packs to their main account anonymously. I've seen a lot of this in other games...

        Also as Spooky suggested, could you give some more information about DoT buffs? How much stronger are ballistas or DoT spells now? Do they work differently or do poison effects now stack?

          Could you elaborate on the ballista changes?

          Last time ballistas were adjusted, they still had little to no effect whatsoever, higher in the game, where as, dragons below blue tier, died if poisoned. Pretty much everyone of them, everytime. Making it virtually impossible to hit a base with one dragon at the lower levels.

          Most low low levels were flooded with ballistas for this reason. Causing the low levels (new players) not to be able to hit a base and enjoy the game.

          Being a seasoned player, that also started a new acct around that time, it was shocking to me how new players were penalized with these previous adjustments.
          Basically, put 10 ballistas on your base, and watch three dragons die on it without question, every single attack. If I were a new player, I would have deleted the app within 3 days as I would have found the game stupid, pointless, and unplayable.

          So are these ballista chages intended for high end ballistas, or will this be more punishment on new players below blue tier dragons?

            I agree - I started after the ballistas became more powerful and I built several... now I wish I would have stuck to better towers, so I have stopped upgrading ballistas and have salvaged several very strong ballista related runes...

            Now you're saying that ballistas are going to be strong again... but most of us have scrapped our ballistas and their runes.

            How the hell do we plan/build a strong base when the rules keep changing?

            i do welcome the ballista changes. however i very much concur with oldmandragons post. the last ballista changes affected low low levels tremendously while lvl 60+ player were mostly unaffected. i really hope PG took this into consideration. its very frustrating as a low low player to die against bases full of ballistas.

        • #10
          Ballistas suck - so what? Let them suck. They're like the Chevy Cobalt of towers... good for starting out, but don't last long and end up in the scrap heap... Just as God intended

            I'm not a 'gamer' - this is the first and only game like this I play. The last video game I played was "Fight Night '04" for the PS2 - So I did not "know full well that games like this constantly make adjustments", although I agree it could be inferred, especially given the fact that I did note it had been changed in the past. The only reason I knew it changed (prior to me starting) however was I read it here on the forum - otherwise I would not have known that either.

            And hey, I'm not up in arms about it or anything Certainly didn't mean to offend your delicate sensibilities

            And I agree with you and Oldmancatasense - ballistas were already tough on the lower levels - hope they just increase their strength at a certain tower level, not across the board.

          Crystal shield fix - awesome!
          Bookmarks full thing - ok nice
          Gifting - I suppose this is nice too

          The other 20 or so fixes? Almost all are display tweaks or changing the color of text...I (nor anybody i have spoken with) have never noticed, or been affected by any of these. Never seen anyone mention them much less complain about any of them.

          Really hope pg is also working on the bigger bugs like the cloak bug and the invincible tower bug. You know, things that drastically affect gameplay.

          Very happy crystal shield is fixed but an otherwise very blah update as far as fixes go. Poison rebalancing could be interesting, kudos on that.

          It total flames is less than 250 then "successful" defense count is used? Do you really mean "successful" or just being there?

          What if total flames is 250 each? any changes here? are you also counting "successful" defense only?

            Im sure they just mean defenses. So defense counter now will break any tie, whether its 250-250 or 245-245 etc etc. Thats my interpretation anyway lol. Yes, it could be much more clear.

          PGJared Just for the record, I think being able to gift value packs is going to be a terrible idea that is going to blow up later....if it does, please don't delete this so you guys can't say nobody told you.

            Really? Are you trying to run an escort business in Pg? I am sure all the wardragon whores will have it easy now they dont have to do it through Line. Leaguechat will become even more infested with players offering services for rubies.Good job PG.
            Does a bucket for all the vomit come free with that option?

            This option will clutter the chats with sexual explicit language (the kind you guys find reportable) so I suggest to change it. If not, You can throw these rules out of your Terms and conditions or those of Apple.

              Neither does the thirst behaviour on WD. But it is there and people know and talk.

              This is a forum to discuss game matters and this behaviour is in game. Sorry to be a bringer of bad news but better crank up that age limit on WD. If you havent noticed (like how?just watch lc) you will soon. And maybe tell the rest of pg to keep their pants on and not try to chase a powerhungry fantasy with girls that only want them for virtual money and status. Like get real people. You are just a number on the 'whoisdumbenoughtobuymerubies" list. But I shall refrain from any further comments for now since you asked so kindly to not make such comments.
              Goodluck with the glitchalypse and thirstplosion. Ill be here donating buckets and cookies to comfort you all😘

              Okay, final warning. Accusations of those kind of indiscretions are not appropriate for this forum. If you continue to malign PG staff like that you're going to lose forum access.

              I am happy to discuss issues in the game and how to address negative player behavior, but this is not the way to go about it. If you have any real evidence of wrongdoing on the part of PG staff you can send it to me and I'll launch a full investigation. Making wild and salacious forum claims is not okay.

            food crisis/glitch is so bad I don't even bother levelling dragons now. I should be hitting sapphire next breed but simply can not be bothered. I would pay for packs like before but I rather start smoking crack.

            i use to hit 1-1.7 mil medals a week. Now my average is about 300k.

            Plus event is just getting worse and worse to progress.

            Thanks pg. just shut down the game. You milked it long enough
            Commend my persistence ^.^
