  1. Got some colorful ones, now I just need to grab some of those gray Pygmies. Both hatchies are looking really cute, looking forward to seeing the adults. Thanks to everyone involved for the nice release.
  2. Sadly it's over, I miscalculated as well and missed on many pretty eggs. I'm quite bummed about this as there were many I wished to get... There's simply not enough time to collect so many eggs, 30 eggs yes, but not 62... there should be either more time, less eggs or shorter time between sprite appearance. I loved all the sprites, it's just that this was the first time in a while I've been so busy I couldn't collect them all, so I'm a little dissapointed I simply could not manage my time better... Thanks spriters, I wish I could get all your artwork! But seriously, is there a way to expand this event as so many people didn't manage to collect this large number of eggs? It wouldn't hurt anyone and would give us the extra time we need to collect the sprites we're missing...
  3. Wonderful release, both breeds are absolutely beautiful! Congratulations to the artists, and thanks to everyone involved for a nice release!
  4. Ooooh, I know these Pygmies, hype!! Gusties look neat too, definitely looking forward to adults!
  5. Congratulations to both artists, the dragons are lovely, I really like both adults. Also thank you TJ for a nice release.
  6. Where can these be found? I'm very late to the party...
  7. Kudos to the artists, the hatchies look super cute, and to TJ for introducing them and such cool new features. EDIT. some feedback to the old-new sprites, quite like the look of Reds, but still getting used to the new Seasonals (I don't mind too much the changes in Summer and Winter dragons and think they're done well, but something is nagging me when looking at Fall female sprites, can't put my finger on it, if it's the shading or what, but it'll take me a while to adjust to them). I still appreciate the effort and the good intentions going into this revamp and understand the site needs to go with the times, but it's always either a hit or miss with these things for me.
  8. I don't really see a problem here, you'd simply remember to Ward your eggs (it'd have to apply for hatchies as well, like I said Ward in its current form is not as useful as it could be) before casting Teleport and it wouldn't get sick in the first place. Sure, it'd take a bit of foreplanning, but so does trading and creating teleport links, people would just use one BSA after another. But sure, if Whites could cast Ward on teleported eggs as well that'd be perfectly fine by me, the simpler the better - and if that's too difficult to code, making a new teleport for a newly Warded egg isn't exactly something too difficult imo. My reasoning here is - Teleport is for teleporting eggs, that's what it does. Ward is the BSA that was given to us to help protect all growing things from sickness, but in its current form it's too short and too severely limited to be really useful. While I'd be perfectly fine if eggs were invulnerable under the protection of the teleport spell, I still feel that should be Ward's function. But I'd be fine with anything really.
  9. I've never had many problems with sickness before this Valentine event (and even that was my fault for leaving my eggs unfogged). Sickness always compelled me to be careful about how I handle my eggs and in a way, gives me the feeling I'm actually raising something while keeping an eye on that little bunch of pixels. But yeah, sickness does seem to creep up everywhere recently and I also feel that we should probaly have some more effective way to protect our eggs and hatchlings in situations where fogging can't be applied (like in teleports). I just posted about this on another thread, but I still feel Ward could be the answer to all the sickness issues if only it'd get tweeked and improved. Perhaps change Ward so it can protect eggs and hatchies alike + make the protection time longer (and can be used more then once per egg/hatchie)? And it'd fit the breed with ' extremely strong healing magic ' perfectly + it'd still take some effort from the player to protect their eggs (like with fogging) so this aspect of gameplay would be preserved (sorry, I hope this makes sense, it's late and I'm rambling :P).
  10. This was my first thought as well. Teleport would take the effect ward should have - don't get me wrong, I'm not against any idea that would effectively stop eggs from getting sick and I'd probably use it in this way too (it's finally give my Magi's something to do), but wouldn't it make more sense to simply make Ward more effective? Because in its current form, the protection it offers is simply to short (six hours isn't even enough to safely leave your eggs over night while you sleep + it can be only used once per egg, so it's usefulness is severely hampered,). Why not alter the already existing code and make Ward be able to protect for 12-24 hrs and be able to be cast more then once per egg and solve the problem?

  14. No thanks, I'd rather see any potential rares (which I dislike cuz' frankly they're a pain in the butt to get - uncommons and commons for the win!) get released in Cave or pehaps as extras in a store. But in general I feel we have enough prizes with the monthly raffle and all - getting all six CB variants of prize dragons is neigh impossible (might as well win a lottery) so I see no point of introducing any more. Perhaps if current prizes were more available, I'd be moreopen to this idea, but currently I feel that we have enough of them.
  15. Yeah, sadly I think it is. I just stated which ideas I liked. This is why I don't see any way this situation can be salvaged, it's like opening a can of worms... not pretty.
  16. While I don't like the way things are being handled now, I like the idea of creating yet another Prize Dragon situation by having alt Sweetlings breed true by a constantly dwindling alt owner populace even less - this will only lead to more chaos as everyone and their dog will be trying to get their hands on an alt of their own or try to find a mate for them. That is why I agree with TJ that this is not a good way to handle this (it took years to finally get to a point we are now and have new Prize dragons trickling among the playerbase every month and they can still cost a small fortune). Among the pitched ideas I liked the reintroduction of CB Sweetlings as part of a Single Awareness Day best as the idea is very cute. Or any other way to introduce CB Sweetlings among the playerbase or a BSA that could influence eggs/hatchies (definitely not adult dragons, even without offspring). Anything that retroactively changes the way Sweetlings behave (such as BSA that would make adults alt or turn pink) or the aforementioned 'Sweetlings breed true on all scrolls, but only some own CB's' gets a firm NO from me. But since any of the pitched good ideas are unlikely to be implemented, I have no idea how TJ is going to find a solution to make things better - because now I don't believe a single player is happy, alt and non-alt owners alike. Nobody wins this way. And going back to the way things were is... well, kind of lame. Why mess with the system if there were no plans to improve the game anyway? Introducing anything super rare and niche in this type of game is not likely to be met with rounds of applause. Sorry, I hope I didn't come out too harsh, I can only imagine how challenging creating a balanced game must be, but any changes of this sort have never been accepted well (Prize raffle drama, upside-down Mint drama etc.), so I really don't see why these decisions are being made time and time again and have players bickering over them over and over... seems kind of pointless.
  17. While I personally am not bothered by the decision of alt Sweetling owners being able to gets the regular ones too (I own pink Sweetlings and nothing's really changed for me), it will probably be an object of discussion, maybe even resentment, from now on because a small group of players that were given a unique rare sprite because of a glitch way back are now being further 'rewarded' by being given a CB regular one too (I still don't understand if the limits were raised to 4 CB Sweetlings now so they can collect the extra sprites). Again, I don't mind that alt Sweetling owners can have both sprites now (more people that can create pretty lineages is always a win!) and am not trying to attack anyone, but I can see why so many people are upset. BTW, I don't agree to the chosen solution to this issue (as it causes damage to all players - if I understand correctly and alt Sweetlings won't produce alt offspring anymore then their owners won't be able to continue their lineages (that they've been working on for years...) and no new players will be able to get them either) as there were better ways of leveling the playing ground between the two groups of players that would make pretty much everyone happy suggested in this thread. I'm sorry, I wish I could be more positive and accepting... I kind of see that TJ's intent for alt Sweetlings is to be some sort of niche exclusive thing and in that light it succeeds, but the cost for it is pretty high IMO, especially since the breeding mechanic is being changed after all these years, after people have invested so much care and effort into creating whatever they could with resources being given to them.
  18. Thank you for the reply! So, if I get this straight it will be like the upside down Mint situation - some people get special sprites on their scroll, but they only produce regular offspring? Or will alt Sweetlings become unbreedables?
  19. Love the game, the artwork on dragons heads is gorgeous - makes me wish that perhaps they could be made available as potential forum profile photos/avatars. <3 And can't wait for my new eggs to hatch, I love how easy they were to catch!
