It looks so. We already have Portal and Olympic Games. 

The Olympic release was themed in which breeds were chosen, but none were inspired by the Olympics. IIRC they'd all existed before, some long before.

it's probably because they're unbreedables, or something

... nevermind silvers are in there too and upon closer inspection these prices are all over the place and i do not understand them at all.

Lovely eggs (I didn't yet check the new features)  but the drops go extremely fast. I was here at the start and got two refreshes. In the 5min drops I only see the eggs once. You blink and miss it.

Finally found the market, looks fun!

 

Haven't seen a single egg in the cave and I think I need to sleep 😂 Maybe tomorrow! Excited to serve the community as a mod too. 😆

Congrats on being a mod.

 

Where is the market?

You get five points for grabbing eggs from the biomes and two for breeding eggs.

*deep breath* I'm a little disappointed with the Seasonal changes. I don't mind the adult changes as much, though I don't personally think they look *better* then they did before, but omg those hatchies. I have a small army of frozen Winters because of the adorable stage-1 sprite and now they look totally different. That really sucks.

So much to post about here, I'll try to be coherent. :D 

 

Congrats to the new mods, I love that we're getting fresh meat! I can't wait for your Ask-A-Mod threads as well, hint hint.

 

Happy Birthday, DC! I can't wait to check out the Trading section in more detail later (wait, did I clean out the trade threads for nothing? :blink: :lol: )

 

I love the new Red sprites, they look more realistic now. They looked really two-dimensional before to me. 

 

New dragons, oh dear, I have no room. I'll have to go into overtime hunting them when I unlock.

Whirlaway posted the egg listings. None of the new eggs is named after the Hogwarts houses.  Slytherin is K or L, Gryffindor is L, Rawenclaw is R and Hufflepuff is M.

Woo, happy birthday!

Love the sprite updates, and the new eggs!

 

Also I feel like I should be saving up for, like, the rare things I haven't been able to catch in 10 years, but I know I'm just going to end up splurging on bunches of commons to build my armies....

Did the original spriter(s) want to pull the artwork or just change it? 

 

I'm w/ you on the winters!

 

The summer female was too skinny--that is the one change I like.

Yeeesssss. This is basically what I said in the suggestion thread for the whole 'market' concept. It's soooo tempting to constantly spend everything you've got on stuff that you could technically get relatively easy elsewhere...

Oh wow, these are some updates I was never expecting to see, and that’s very good! Trade market looks good especially!

 

Some reservations, though. I don’t think the sprite updates look good—the heads on them are huge and they look pretty cartoony overall. They also don’t keep the original look as well as some of the past updates. Birdz is a pretty kick butt artist with some really neat sprites which makes it all the more disappointing. (Also, seasonal and red updates over dorsals and stones? O__o)

 

Market seems to have potential but... I think a huge chunk of what people hoped for from it is nonexistent without golds and most of all prizes being in it. Hope this changes. I want all dragons to be earnable via effort rather than raw chance.

 

And the new eggs... I love Hogwarts like hella, but it does feel like we’ve gotten a rather worrisome amount of pop culture reference dragons in cave. These guys and the power rangers are pretty blatant. Kind of stick out among all the original, more “naturalistic” dragons of the game’s world... and weird choices especially for birthday releases, given that fact. Why not something unique to DC?

 

So yah, some reservations, but glad overall to see the fan base is being listened to. Still much to improve on, but a good start!

The original Seasonal spriter's name is still in the credit at the bottom, which I don't think it would be if they wanted it totally pulled... I guess it's just yet another 'updated standards' change.

I'm really happy the Reds got an update. I honestly think they've needed one for awhile. ^^' The new Seasonal sprites look lovely as well!

I wish there was a way to sort by CB or lineage in the trading section.

I don't want to, but I think I am gonna take a break and come back later to try and catch the Alpine and Volcano ones. Eggs going in one refresh is way too fast for me.

Firstly I would like to say that I love that sprite updates continue to be implemented. Seasonals were one of the breeds desperately in need of an update. However, they still carry over many of the flaws of the original sprites. The new seasonals are an improvement, but they are still definitely not up to snuff with recent releases.

 

Their shading remains an issue: it is extremely pillowed with too few intermediary colors. And for all of the sprites, there are some overreaching anatomy flaws. The heads (or at least eyes?) are oversized; the thighs are very thick for no apparent reason; the wings appear to connect to the shoulder, which is anatomically incorrect and just looks not quite right.

 

I apologize if this is not the place for critique, but for the sake of improvement these things should be addressed.

New Reds and Seasonals look so good! They're my favourite part for some reason.

Wish Gold dragons were in the market.

Other site updates look great too and I'm excited for the new dragons, they have pretty eggs as always.

Not sure if anyone else is having this issue, but the notification page is not showing up at all for me. I clicked on the little bell, it took me to the notifications page, but it's blank.
