ANSWERED:Potential Bug: Purple x Spitfire Doesn't Appear to Produce Purples

Recommended Posts

After strenuous testing by the Unofficial DC Discord as well as other channels, we've come to the conclusion that Spitfire x Purple won't produce Purple. Ever. We've walled the AP, another wall is likely on the way after this latest attempt at producing a single Purple from Spitfire, but nada. No Purples.

 

The latest Purples we've been able to track down from Spitfires are all in the 2013 range of dates. Nothing newer. I won't link them directly as they aren't mine.

 

If anyone has evidence of a Spitfire producing a Purple in the past year (nothing earlier than January 2019), please come forward with proof. At the moment, we're hypothesizing there is some kind of coding bug going on.

 

Thank you in advance, TJ, for taking a look at this when you have a chance.

 

Sincerely,

MoonShark and other concerned members of the We Want Purples Brigade

I didn't notice this until a few months ago, then it seems that nobody else was able to produce a Purple from Spitfire. Was wondering whether they're as hard as getting a Gold from Xol dragons, but then again, Purples are not hard to breed, Spitfires are quite dominant but not as much. So is this a ratio problem or a bug?
(Thanks for the thread, I also want answers XD )

I am yeeting myself forwards into posting the few proof i have that purples were able to be produced from spitfires at some point in the far past:

 

From June 23rd, 2012 (my only spitfire with a purple child) https://dragcave.net/progeny/o4NjB

I haven't bred them much but this is the progeny since 2012:

I'm very curious about this too. 😊

I just checked all my CB Spitfires. I haven't bred any of them with Purples more than 3 or 4 times, but none of the 12 of them has ever produced a Purple.

Same here - I only got Ultraviolets from Spitfire x Purple on my Scroll.

 

Update - here's a fresh breeding spree:

   22:04 - Raleuraia (Spitfire cF) + Lilaion (Purple cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:05 - Lilaia (Purple cF) + Raleuraion (Spitfire cM) = 1 egg (Spitfire)
   22:05 - Raleureia (Spitfire cF) + Lileion (Purple cM) = 1 egg (Spitfire)
   22:06 - Lileia (Purple cF) + Raleureion (Spitfire cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:07 - Lilaina (Purple cF) + Raleurion (Spitfire cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:07 - Lilaaia (Purple cF) + Raleuriaon (Spitfire cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:08 - Raleuria (Spitfire cF) + Lilaaon (Purple cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:09 - Raleureea (Spitfire cF) + Lileeion (Purple cM) = 1 egg (Spitfire)
   22:09 - Raleuriea (Spitfire cF) + Lileaon (Purple cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:12 - Lilaaia (Purple cF) + Raleuraaion (Spitfire cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:14 - Lilaeia (Purple cF) + Raleuraeion (Spitfire cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:14 - Raleurana (Spitfire cF) + Liliaion (Purple cM) = 1 egg (Spitfire)
   22:15 - Raleurina Z'S (Spitfire cF) + Lilieion (Purple cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:16 - Raleurea (Spitfire cF) + Lileaion (Purple cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:17 - Lileana (Purple cF) + Raleuraeon (Spitfire cM) = 1 egg (UViolet)
   22:17 - Lileiana (Purple cF) + Raleurieon (Spitfire cM) = refused

 

11 Ultraviolets, 4 Spitfires and one refusal. No Purple whatsoever.

Now that's weird. And at 200 shards, Purples aren't supposed to be that rare.

Well, they're not that rare in breeding, either, when bred with anything else.

Just checking mine have also never given purple's. 50/50 spitfire and ultraviolet

I haven't even gotten an ancient one from my Spitfires, though. o_O

I haven't tried today, but having checked back, I have never got a Purple. I have had a few Spitfires, but most Spitfire x Purple breedings have resulted in an Ultraviolet.

I just did some random breeding & got a few spitfires & mostly ultra-violets & refusals. XD No purp0les here, but looking back at previous breedings & I had pretty much the same results & that was way back, like 2012 onwards. I really don't do much breeding, so it was easy to check back, before I did the random check-to-see-if-I-get-a-purple-breedings.

I just checked lineages and it seems my last bred purple offspring are from 2014.  I also did 29 random breedings to see what happened and got spitfires, UV's, no interest, and one refusal.

Oh, that's interesting.  I hadn't noticed, but went back and (sloppily) checked. My most recent 2G Purple from Spitfire was in 2014.  I just bred all of my 2G pairs and only got spitfires & ultraviolets. 

 

https://dragcave.net/group/127424  is my Purples group. If someone more organized wants to use it for any kind of research, be my guest. :)

It looks like this indeed has been broken for a while. The issue should be fixed now, and I'll continue monitoring to make sure.

 

EDIT: I can confirm that there have been several purple eggs produced from purple x spitfire pairs.

Thank you so, so much, from all of us in the UOD! We can finally get mates we've been trying for! :D
