Who keeps breeding one egg to abandon? Massbreed

And I wonder why I can't get mates for my holiday lineages from my Gold checkers ...

 

I mix up my gold's mates. I did have some nice holiday checkers make it to the AP which helps other other people who might be working on that type of lineage or trade to those who are. And not all of the breeding I do are to holiday dragons. I breed them to commons as well.   I actually expected to end up with a ton of common eggs, but did not.  I ended up with 2-3 times more golds.  My rate tends to be 3-5% success and I was getting 10-11% success.

That's fair enough - I don't blame you for swapping out mates (that's not the issue) or that you're making an effort to send nice things to the AP - it's just what Ruby Eyes (and I hope I'm not putting  words in your mouth, Ruby Eyes) is saying is that when metals get "massbred", other people who are working on lineages (irrespective of choice of mate) can't get any dragon out of their own Metallic pairings, at all, because ratios/RNG ... and how it (the RNG) responds to even a small, teeny tiny spike in Metallic eggs produced.

 

For example, I've tried (and continue to try) to get a solitary 2G Gold out of various CB Holidays ... And bar, I believe, one, maybe two utter flukes from Snow Angel and Cali very early on, I get "no interest" or "no egg produced" ...  literally every single time (with Fertility - I daren't risk it without) 😞 .

 

 

TL;DR: Nice Shinies in the AP is lovely and awesome but the RNG is mean and salty!

I'd personally be very grateful if anyone has an army of laculas that they could breed. I'm trying to do lacula x white and getting a white egg seems to be impossible!

See I have the opposite problem. I can often get 2Gs from holiday's with rarely a problem.  it's the commons that rarely produce golds for me.

Well people breed what they want when they want, even with the planned mass breeding of rares to send nice things to AP -you know you may be lucky to find your holiday lineage in what is dropped. Also, before the mass rare breed there were numerous people breeding rares anyways - as I'm sure they always do because when ever I am in the hatcheries I see no shortage of rares -shimmers, tinsels, gold and silver. So, when people aren't mass breeding they are still being bred as everyone plays as they want.

 

I find my rares might give rare eggs nicely for a while with one mate then you don't get any switch them up and you might get rares again. Getting a rare egg from breeding is a bit like playing the lottery to win a rare dragon - some are lucky and may get two or three of them, others unlucky and don't have any.

I want Pipios to give me Kyanites. Nope. (Mid lineage, so don't anyone try to be kind; it won't help. damn it !)

I just mass-bred my rares and uncommons, so in a few days a 2G Silver from male Arcana will be popping up in there, along with 2G/3G Zyus, Xenos, Aeons and so on. :)

*snerk* Did you ever do the math? How big may be the chance that actually someone who is currently working on a specific lineage will find exactly that lineage in the AP? So far, the ONLY time this has EVER happened to me was during holiday breedings, with holidays. NEVER EVER for rares, shinies or even uncommons.

Which is why I try to breed them myself, and then I get "no egg" most of the time. Sometimes, 51 weeks is just not long enough.

I will do mass breedings of Pinks and Reds, but then I think those are the most useful BSA dragons. I mean Aeons will tell you what something is going to be, but if it’s wrong you still need a pink to change it.

I've gotten lucky a couple of times grabbing guardians in the AP with lineages that I can use.  I'll troll thru and grab all the guardians I can, look at the lineages and keep what I like.  But that's probably because it is easier when looking for one specific kind of dragon vs multiple kinds of dragons.

Sometimes I'll go thru my scroll and mass breed my pinks and reds.  Not that I have enough to make a wall but I think even lineaged ones are desirable.  :)  And I'll breed dragons that make hybrids.  I should do that again soon.

 

One day, I may do a mass breed of my guardians.  But I think I'd hide my scroll first.  XD

That works great for commons indeed, but not for metallics, sadly. Commons get picked up and dropped again when people don't think they can use them - a couple of times for each egg until it finally finds a new home. Metallics are mostly kept by the first finder just for the sake of being metallics, even if the new owner wasn't specifically looking for that lineage, which is why it's nigh impossible to find exactly the metallic lineage you need on the AP.
