@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 11:08 PM) Just one more inexplicable, user-unfriendly effort to be wondered at.
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 11:02 PM) Tku Rachael. It seems they removed it half-way through the offer time.
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 11:01 PM) Hi All!

@  Rachael : (22 July 2014 - 06:25 PM) @Walcha18 I don't have an offer for Stressed Dragon on my phone
@  Rachael : (22 July 2014 - 06:22 PM) :lurk:
@  Fae : (22 July 2014 - 04:20 PM) ... and logging in on Windows tells me I have no combats left, now this is getting interesting / annoying :(
@  Fae : (22 July 2014 - 04:14 PM) ... so, anybody else not able to do any battles? The moment I click a combattant, I get the message to reload the game, both on android and iOS
@  Fae : (22 July 2014 - 04:14 PM) I think I got it as well, playing on android at the time, but the offer was gone very quickly
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 02:24 PM) @GameMasterA: are you on iOS?
@  GameMasterA : (22 July 2014 - 12:29 PM) I got Stressed dragom
@  Fae : (22 July 2014 - 11:31 AM) guess one of their stressed admins needed it to unwind ....
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 10:14 AM) Stressed Dragon Combo is still missing. Does anyone on iOS still have it on their screen, please?
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 07:45 AM) There has to be something--their blog administrator said that they were taken away for a reason.
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 07:30 AM) Congratulations! Did they polish it up? Add air-conditioning?!
@  Balgruff : (22 July 2014 - 07:25 AM) Hmm.. my Dungeon isle is back
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 05:04 AM) Anyone else experience this?
@  Walcha18 : (22 July 2014 - 04:22 AM) There was about twenty hours left before expiry. Pity.

Most of you might know about this, but still for those who don't, there exists a convenient tool to check what would a breeding yield and which breeding pair would be best to get a specific dragon.

The results are quite accurate, and rarely wrong.

I have removed the link. Also, I wouldn't trust the percentages. Yes, the results are correct. But the percentages will be different for every person. Why? Because everyone will have different amounts of luck. Let's say you're breeding for a Vampire. The calculator says there's a 40% chance to get it. But what if you are unlucky and keep landing in the 60% all the time? Like a member who had 56 tries before getting a Pure while another got hers on the first try. And another member who has 200+ failed breedings for a legendary, his success rate would be far less than the percentage given by the calculator.

Furthermore, although the base math is correct, it does not account for failed breeding.  Let's say the calculator gives you a 30% chance, but the failed breeding possibilities all yield 10+ hour breed times.  Another combination may have only a 20% chance, but that combo's failed breeds are all less than 4 hours, with a high probability for 30 second fails.  Using the calculator, you would think the 30% combo is 'better', when in fact, the lesser chance of 20% is in fact the faster, more effecient way to breed.


Maybe one of these days I'll compile my math into a java utility or something, but I just calculate on the fly as needed....144 is a mathematical number ya know ;)
