Perhaps because if two dragons both in their season, as with Yulebucks and Snow Angels or Valentines and Sweetlings were bred together, the potential for total Holiday egg production would be cut in half?

 

I'm guessing... wildly, lol.

But then, it goes against grabbing for yourself, too, doesn't it? Because there are only half as many eggs for you to keep?

 

I think we'll just have to wait and see. It makes sense to me that TJ might have only meant that holiday x holiday would refuse out of season, but then maybe Pumpkins really are an exception because of the limited breeding possibilities for the breed as a whole (but in that case, it wouldn't be a Halloween thing, it'd be a Pumpkin thing.) Until TJ clarifies what he meant or we have a holiday after rare x rare breeding comes out, there's no way to know for sure.

But the reason for that is that Christmas and Valentine's day are about sharing with others, while Halloween is about grabbing as much as you can for yourself. How does having holiday x holiday breeding go against sharing with others?

4 chances for eggs or 2 chances for eggs?

 

If you have two of each Christmas (or valentines) dragons and you breed them to common dragons, you get FOUR individual breeding chances for eggs to share with others.

 

If you have two of each Christmas (or valentines) dragons and you breed them to each other then you only get TWO breeding chances for eggs and you have effectively cut your egg production by half if not more. Very little sharing going on.

 

4 chances for eggs is a much better option when it comes to "sharing" themes since you can't exceed your own personal "2 limit". Halloween where a "hoarding" theme is encouraged there is no limit on eggs you can have for yourself so pumpkin x pumpkin breedings, while they do reduce egg production, they do not conflict with the holiday theme.

what if people started using fertility on the holiday x holiday dragons then?

Didn't people get like 2-4 eggs from a breeding for pumpkins?

I only got one, but it is likely that you will get more than one when you breed your holidays when they can produce their same species. smile.gif

That wouldn't make much, if any, difference, KidaYuki. Holiday dragons in their seasons are very prolific. Yes, most of them are going to give at least 2 eggs, and many will give 4. If one has 2 each of the Yulebucks and Snow Angels, one has a good chance of dropping 16 Christmas eggs to the AP this Christmas.

Fertility is not supposed to have an effect on the specific production of rare eggs - just on whether the pair of dragons might make eggs of any type. Since holiday dragons are already known to be very fertile during their specific holiday it would be a waste to use fertility on them.

My 9 pumpkins produced a total of 12 eggs:

 

2 pumpkins gave me 0 eggs

3 pumpkins gave me 1 egg each

3 pumpkins gave me 2 eggs each

1 pumpkins gave me 3 eggs each

0 pumpkins gave me 4 eggs each

 

I could have gotten more eggs except I was stupid and 2 of the pumpkins were bred to each other rather than to pygmy's like the others had been and of course those 2 dragons produced absolutely NOTHING between them. dry.gif

Fertility also shouldn't work on pairings that will refuse any way. It also does not guarantee an egg; just helps it a bit. ^^

Valentine eggs were very stingy this year. I think the mass yulebucks were a pleasant surprise. I know several people that thought there would be a wall of old valentines, but it never happened. So, I'm not counting my Christmas eggs before they drop.

 

That said, are we there yet?

I'm really really hoping renaming comes in early december, I used a very special name on an ungendered dragon and it gendered WRONG xd.pngxd.pngxd.png Oh jeez. xd.png

Actually, terming the first 2 weeks 'early December', as I've seen various people doing, leaves no middle, as the last 2 weeks would then presumably be 'late December', wouldn't they?

 

Early December surely ought to be the first week or so, one would think... hope... ??? especially for the extra spaces!!!

Because not as many eggs would be produced, but you get a purebred egg.

I got a two-clutch and four-clutch batch from mine.

Oi, I did it again! My conscious mind is content to worry about school and the 8-page essay due next Monday, but my unconscious mind only cares about DCs new features, it seems. I had another DC dream...

 

Lurking on the forums told me that Teleport was out, so I checked and sure enough my Magis had Teleport and my Purples had Fertility. I named something wrong, checked for the renaming feature and boom! it was there. After naming, the "name" action didn't disappear. So I had 4 eggs, went to the cave to check about biomes and grabbing a 5th, and... there was a bonus. It had a strange message something like "The biomes are coming! Why don't we celebrate?" and there was an odd setup under it, it looked like a banner with a black egg and a white egg. I clocked the white, since I recently lost one IRL due to... circumstances... and what I got was an egg that looked like a Split, but white on the left and black on the right. I went to incubate my others so I could grab 4 more (It seemed to be an event release!)... and I woke up.

 

That was awesome. Just. Awesome. Now I know that apparently DC is more important than school xd.png

be real? It sounds like a winner to me, and I like the new egg bit, too! Very nice dream! smile.gif

Wharrgarble. Can't tell you how happy I'll be when the new limits are in place. Then I won't have to keep shuffling to avoid hatchling lock. :3

I´m holding my breath if something will happen tomorrow!

Hehe, me too.

 

But I doubt it will already happen something tomorrow.

Even if it would be nice...

I don't think it's necessary to say that this will make the game 510% better and more enjoyable. HECK YEAH! Time to party!
