2016-10-25 - Halloween Contagion

Recommended Posts

It tends to fluctuate between the cure winning and the spread pushing it back to the middle.

It seems to be slightly more towards the spread right at the moment :3 big push, spreaders - let's infect every dragon in the cave! biggrin.gif

I can't submit cure contributions anymore, there's always a screen "Something went wrong Try going back and resubmitting." Going back and winning another game gets the same result. No wonder the contagion is on the rise. sad.gif

I realized it might be the last day to breed Halloween dragons so I just bred 98 of them. All the eggs went to the AP clog and I don't think I'll breed the rest of what I have because I don't have decent mates.

 

Never mind, just bred two more CB ones so that makes it an even 100.

I want to take a moment to mention some of the trick or treat goodies.

 

To whoever made Ruby -- I love you.

 

To whoever made the incredibly large and realistic spider, forcing me to squirm and squeal for ten minutes before grabbing it because I'm on a mobile device and have a crippling fear of spiders -- thank you for putting the scary into this event and what is wrong with you, you evil genius?

 

I think my favorite one so far is the leetle tuxedo kitty. happy.gif it's so cute with those Itty bitty squishy jellybean toes!

 

Well done to all spriters!

 

Also, the Greek in me loved the jack o lantern eggplant.

Make sure that if you use the back button, you refresh before starting a new game.

I didn't really use the back button, but re-entered the event and started a new game before submitting. Then I tried all kinds of things, reloading, clearing cache and cookies, but still got the same error message.

 

But now the problem seems to be resolved! Shokomon, look at the event metre, cure seems to have received a huge boost!

Aww cmon, guys.... the dragons won't be harmed and we only have the one chance to see them all zombiefied. For someone who doesn't have the means to get a zombie dragon, I kinda wanna see what will happen. happy.gif Go team spread~

 

On another note, I just got one of those games where I pressed one button and won the game. xd.png Minesweeper, you so silly~

ummm.. is the spread/cure bar glitching or something? spread was about 52% in the lead about 15 min ago and now we own less than 1/3 of the board. cure is moving so fast i can see the bar moving when i refresh. Considering that during the height of things it usually took half a day for a lead to balance out and it took cure about two days to gain a considerable lead last time, this dose not seem like it should be possible in such a short amount of time?

I noticed the same thing. Really too me by surprise. Unless a ton of cures were submitted all at once? Something is off.

I believe that over the last couple of hours cure contributions weren't properly recorded. Maybe the missing contributions were added all at once?

The tricks are over?

 

i only could get 54

54 is the total amount of treats/tricks. You aren't seeing any more because you have collected them all. For those that are still missing ToT items, they do still have about 7 hours to finish. ^^

Yeah...as much as I want to win, I don't want to win through a glitch.

 

I wish we had an official live count or something.

 

Unless, a bunch of curers really decided to jump on the bandwagon, and start curing.

 

Please let this be real.

The easiest way to confirm that this isn't a glitch would be if all the curers stopped curing for like 60 minutes, and then start curing again.

 

If the bar starts pushing right, and then suddenly switches to the left after the 1 hour, then we know, it was really a cure surge.

 

There is no way to coordinate that though. Not everybody is on the thread, and not everybody would agree.

The bar was set up such that if no one did anything, spread would naturally win (i.e. spread got free contributions). For the final day, that artificial help falls off (over the course of the day), so what you're seeing is the actual user score.

Thanks for checking in so quickly to explain! This makes a lot of sense.

Ohhh, that explains a bit.

 

So, what we are seeing is that not just that Cure got a bunch of team members at the end, but that the natural spread of the disease stopped. So, you could just cure away all the disease, if there was no outside help involved.

 

We should still check to make sure that there is nothing else is influencing it. So, I found a site that makes an image count down timer:

(The time should change with every refresh of the page.)

 

- The timer ends at 6:30 PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time / Dragon Cave Time.

 

- What we should do is at 5:30 PM Dragon Cave Time (aka now), STOP CURING.

-- It sucks, and my dragons will suffer, but I want to makes sure that this is not a glitch.

-- What should happen (if enough people stop curing), is that the bar will start moving to the right, and the disease will start gaining ground.

 

- Then, at 6:30 PM Dragon Cave Time, when time ends, START CURING AGAIN.

-- If another avalanche of curing occurs, and the bar starts jumping left again, then we know that there was just a bunch of curers who hopped on the bandwagon to cure, and not necessarily a glitch.

 

Of course, this is voluntary. You don't have to do it, but it would be good to see if this is true or not.

 

I'm going to try and see.

 

Edit: OHHHHH! Huh, so Spread had help all along? And now that the natural help is gone, Cures are really taking over?

 

So, it's not that there were a bunch of curers. It's that there was natural spreading of the disease that stopped on the final day...

 

We should still test out the theory to make sure.

It doesn't matter, Cure is going to win since you guys seemed to have a surplus of people. Would it have mattered anyway even with the illness help? Theh still would have gone back to normal.

Ooh, that's super interesting, how spread wins naturally. Makes sense - both logically, and given how people tend to play nice over naughty when given a choice. Fits the spirit of the holiday, too.

 

I'm curious, though, having come in very late in this event - was the percentage of dragons with the sick sprites proportionate to the disease bar? Like, I would have thought maybe all dragons were given a random 0-99 seed, which triggers when %infected > seed, but my sick dragons have been changing every day.
