Mine are at 3 days 23 and are staying fogged for purple...

...and if you get them by not incubating and waiting six days, I'm waiting for nothing!

I have an egg that'll hit 3 days (without incubate) in a couple hours. I'm going to hatch it then and see what color it turns. For Science!

 "get the first two, the third is easy"

I wondered about that as well. We didn't think we were supposed to be here pulling out our hair at this stage.

To everyone stating they aren't going to have blues/purples should they have to wait 3+ days to wait for the eggs to hatch: What exactly is it you are playing the game for? For scroll completion? Or catching as many dragons as fast as possible, no matter what? Serious question because I honestly don't get it.

What's wrong with having two eggslots at a time taken up for 5 days in order to get what you need? It's so much easier (and faster) to do this than to catch other alt breeds and hatching and abandoning hatchies of the wrong colour.

 

I'm quite at a loss here. Maybe I'll meet my scroll goals for Siyats in spring 2019. So what? It's not a competition.

Some of us get impatient and want our eggs to hatch /now/ so we can move on to the next egg! XD

I still think we need a 'vitamin' BSA to help our hatchlings grow up one day sooner. :P

In a hatchery, I just observed 2 eggs from the 30th at 2d 23h (so obviously incubated) hatch blue.

Still waiting on 4 non-incubated eggs from the 29th at 2d 23h to hatch.

 

edit: dang, they are blue, too!

In a world of countless pretty projects, why would I ever choose one that takes super long to complete versus one that takes half as long and is just as pretty? I play this game to play, and I don’t consider spending over half a week hatching one egg playing.

 

Patience I can do—I’ve worked on projects years in the making—but willfully doubling my hatch time for an ordinary dragon egg? Ehhh. It helps that Greens are my favorite color anyway.

 

Edit also @Gluria ah, I should also clarify—I also don’t mess around with Gemshards because again, they’re pretty but not worth wasting that much time when I could be working on much more rewarding projects in half the time. I do use Nebulas fairly often, but that’s because they’re just too pretty to say no to. At least then half the time I still get the right color on schedule. 😆

I play pretty much every single day. Even when I had the worst cold in the world, I played, because no way was I missing out on holiday stuff. I also do a lot of lineage projects. My time and egg-slots are valuable. If you play casually or just don't care, that's your deal, but don't act like the rest of us are being unreasonable when we're upset over this time-wasting mechanic.

lineage work, gifting, trading

 

for example, i have 5 separate lineages i work on requiring multiple dragons that don't like to breed an egg or the right egg. i need several CB commons / uncommons to replace dragons that have refused or i just don't hae enough of for my lineages. I have 2 IOUs i need to fulfil from prizes i have. I like to have free egg slots to try and trade very specific breeding requests in the trade section to get rares and uncommons i cannot catch myself. i like to breed my spriter alt lineages, thuwed lineages, rares and prizes to give to newer players who don't have them

 

and if i'm constantly trying to get these guys, that reduces what else i can do. Holding an egg for so long, even if it's just 1 or 2 slots taken up, means i either cannot breed eggs to try and trade for things i can't catch, or i'm not gifting anything to anybody that week

I think it's because everything here is so slow--you wait 7 days for literally everything, and longer for nebulas, etc.  Other sites only have a 3-day breeding cool-down, you can change even adults to the other gender, and there's no growing hatchling limit--only an egg limit for scroll-lock.  And hatchlings don't die after seven day--they can stay hatchlings, unfrozen, forever.

 

So all the gameplay here is so SLOW that anything that slows it down further is just frustrating as hell.  Why can't things go in the OTHER direction.  Making some things move along a little faster

It must have to do with the incubation time. It's in the description: "...determined by its incubation period ...allowed more time to develop..."

 

I haven't read through the last several pages. Has anyone left an egg till it was down to the last 24 hours? Have we even had them that long yet?

I always thought it should be "Nurture" or something like that, but I don't care what it's called as long as we get it.

Drat!  Looks like we're going down to the last day for purples...mine are incubated so I hope that works for them...

Nope XD Best we can get is just below 3 days right now, and these still hatch blue.

Basically what most others are saying. When you're not at Platinum and don't have the maximum egg slot amount--and even then--having an egg sot taken up for a week tops can put a dent in how much you can breed and gift. Especially for those attempting to get breed-only alts that may require dozens upon dozens of eggs before you get said alt.

So yeah, maybe we are being ridiculous in your opinion. But in ours, our frustration is justifiable. The only special thing about this egg is that it's a color variant. Other than that, it's no different than any normal biome-caught egg. Yet the mechanic of making you hold onto it for a week before finally hatching it... That's one week of not making use of a slot that we already have a limited number of.

*shudder. breed alts, urg....i STILL need to finish my scroll goals of those, but i never breed my blacks and plants because i'd rather work on lineages

 

so i'm not hatching my ER egg today, i'm waiting for tomorrow when it'll be under 2 days

At this point, I really would have preferred the three day rotation since a lot of people seem to be massively disappointed with having to wait until they can get purple. At least with a three day rotation, you'd have some control of the colour you want. Just my two cents

I guess I'm just too patient (woah, that's a first) to fully get it.

I've been playing for seven years without a break and I've not yet met my scroll goals yet.

Also, for me it's perfect that DC takes more time and everything is rather "limited" in variations of gameplaying - I can plan everything quite well and I have absolutely no pressure (except on holidays ;) )

 

I have very set scroll goals fo new breeds and I honestly can't say I just don't collect a specific breed, even if I don't like it. Scroll goals must be met, no matter what :P

That's what I thought, but I need coffee in order to brain so I wasn't sure. :P

I mean, basically it boils down to “in the same amount of time, would I rather create three pretty lines or one?”

 

The answer to that, for most of us, is obvious.

The purple ones are my favorite!! I can't wait to figure out what we have to do to get them.

 

Luckily I don't mind keeping eggs on hold for so long, so I won't have a problem raking these cuties in. :D

I wonder... if you get green by incubating(technically hatching at 5 days), and blue by not incubating (hatches at 4 days), I wonder if you get purple by hatching at 1 day left (the time that would be completely gone if you had incubated and hid the egg). 

 

I hid two eggs, and I’ll see if anybody was successful at getting a purple at 3 days left, or wait and hatch when less than a day is left.

Just for the record: I had 2 spotted eggs that were sick (and hatched them while being sick) and I got Blue hatchlings
