People keep complaining that the black tulips got replaced in the delta by furian hide. Yeah, you’re going to have to work harder to get your tulips but the furian hide probably isn’t just vendor trash, there’s probably going to be apparel items released where you need the hide for Swipp’s Swap.
So we were all upset about dragon prices for awhile. I like to think that we’ve all come to understand that this is probably how it’s going to be from now on (well, at least I have). It just makes sense. We have infinite dragons increasing exponentially each day and only a small pool of users. Naturally prices are going to deflate.
I kind of even understand why familiar and apparel prices are tanking too. Again, small pool of users with tons of that stuff being dumped in daily by chests, Swipp, the marketplace and battles, with Crim and inventory being the only way of getting those things out of the system.
What I don’t understand is why other things are tanking, like chests. It’s *way* easier and often way more beneficial to get chests out of the system (ie opening them, collecting the contents within, and having the “chest” disappear). How have the prices of gilded chests gone down to half the value they were a month ago? Are there really more people selling than those tempted to open? And scrolls? Before it seemed like a treat if someone was selling a scroll below Marketplace price. You’d have to be lucky to catch someone from the dominant flight who would be willing to hook you up. Now it seems like a total rip off to buy from the market place at all because people are always selling below market place value.
What gives? Is the economy just being too flooded with these items? Are people quitting at a rate to where we can’t dispose of these items fast enough as new ones are pouring in?
It’s just getting hard to play.
Guise this is my first ever skin contest entry. It was inspired by the show Avatar the Last Airbender. Staff, I was thinking you could call it “Wind Beneath My Wings” or “Avatar Last of the Fart Benders,” whichever name isn’t taken.
Good luck everyone@!
You ever wonder if the staff favors certain flights? Maybe not openly, but if they sort of have their own preferences that maybe they share only with each other?
I guess if they really hated a certain flight they could be discrete about it, like:
"Oh, it’s jag-off-flight’s holiday next week. Let’s release 3 treasure-only market place gene/breed scrolls right now so everyone will want dominance to get the discount!"
Or, similarly, if they liked a flight:
Akiri: Hey guys, the new dragon species is ready! We can release it toda—-
Others: NO! Jerk-flight has dominance. Let’s wait for goody-good-flight. They plan on getting dominance two weeks from now.
And if it was true, we make it really easy for them! There’s always public notice when someone’s trying for dominance so they don’t have to snoop around our flight’s posts or anything.
I know this is all silly and they probably really don’t care, but it’s one of the goofy things that has crossed my mind. I mean, we all kind of have an idea of which flights we generally like/dislike, right? Why not the staffers too?
So I submitted the post about the skin contest:
I just wanted to say that I read your notes and heard your feedback and made the necessary changes to my submission. Thank you all for your valuable critiques! Here’s the final product!
And, of course, a zoom in for details!!!
Now it’s ready for submission. :) I’m going to post it on the contest thread now, and then use the thread as a means of complimenting the other entries. :)
Please stop commenting on all the threads in the Items for Sale board saying how much you love what they have for sale and wish you could afford it. You’re angling for freebies, we get it. All it does is turn you into the most annoying forum user.
Also nobody wants your shitty triple dragons.
why do people act like the site is going to fail any moment now? the thing is, Flight Rising has probably been the most successful pet site released in the last couple years. there’s only a few pet sites comparable in traffic: Subeta, Chicken Smoothie, and of course Neopets. this is after registration has been closed for a couple of months too.
the thing is, Flight Rising has been a lot more successful than any of the developers hoped. if you look at their tumblr before it was opened, you could see they expected maybe 500 players online at the maximum.
so maybe flight rising is never going to return to its “glory days” of the first summer it was opened. but I don’t get why people think it’s going away any time soon. look at other pet sites that are still chugging along with much less users. for one pet site that’s actually closed, look at Valenth, which was shutting down when it had double digit active players on. not triple digit, but double digit.
i do think there are things the site should definitely work on. but even with its flaws, it’s nowhere near shutting down any time soon either.
I’m not happy with the whole Fire and Ice alliance. It sounded like a cute idea but it’s not really helping us Fire flighters. It’s not an alliance if only 5 Ice members are helping us. Ice barely has anything to offer while we’re busting our asses trying to keep up with Water. I’d try to talk the others out of helping Ice next week but they’re so bent on making this dumb alliance work. This alliance was completely one-sided in favor of Ice.
*****’s little stunt even made it worse for us. She looked over Ice’s part in the alliance and then she says she doesn’t care about it, stepped down, and someone else had to handle it. It wouldn’t be that bad if she hadn’t pissed off one of the richest users in Ice. I’m all for water getting dominance instead of us. I’m against every alliance Fire wants to form from now on, especially if the other party used to run that awful bitchrising tumblr.
