Fleet Mode (Battle Mode)

Battle mode.jpg

Fleet Mode is a new game mode that was released on December 5th, 2015. The objective is to defend Berk from Raiders using dragons with the aid of supports (Catapult and Flare). Before combat begins, you can scout first for 30 seconds where you can view the five different types of ships: Flagship, Armored Ship, Attack Ship, Ranged Ship, and Supply Ship. When combat begins, you start off with 30 energy. Energy is used for deploying dragons or for using the Catapult and Flare. The combat ends when you have destroyed the Flagship, retreating, if the time runs out or if all your dragons get exhausted. At the end of a successful defend, you will receive Treasure Key as your reward. Depending on how quickly you destroy the Flagship dealt with Berk, you can receive from 1-3 Treasure Keys. Treasure Keys are used to opening Treasure Chests. The chest will randomly offer you rewards such as resources or collection items including gears. Gears can be used to unlock defender dragons. There are currently 3 different dragon types:

  • Relentless Attacker

Attacker dragons (indicated by a red fireball) are good in damage but can be quite vulnerable. They attack from a medium distance from the ship.

  • Tough Defender

Defender dragons (indicated by a green heart) withstand huge amounts of damage and therefore, should be used as a shield for other dragons. However, the firepower is rather weak and they attack at a close range. This enables them to fire at a Ranged Ship without getting hit.

  • Ranged Sharpshooter

Sharpshooter dragons (indicated by a yellow target symbol) can damage the ships from a safe distance. Their health is rather average, along with their firepower.

All of them have different abilities that help you in combat if you use them well. There is also a specialized type of standard dragon called Battle Dragon. These dragons have better combat statistics, but they get less Fish or Wood. You can get them from Trader Johann collections by completing the number of collection items you need to gather for it.

There are also different ships in the attack:

  • Flagship

The Flagship is the main ship of the fleet. Taking out other ships will help to bring down their health. However, defeating the Flagship only also brings victory. The Flagship deploys gigantic fireballs from their catapult onto Berk. These ships are unable to attack dragons.

  • Attack Ship

These ships are small but attack dragons rapidly with arrows. They take down dragons the fastest, hence their name. As these ships can only attack at a close range, attacking at a distance works best.

  • Armored Ship

The Armored Ship attacks dragons at a distance slowly. However, they are tough and are hard to take down. They also have the ability to shoot down dragons at a far distance, including Ranged Sharpshooters.

  • Ranged Ship

These ships can attack dragons from a far distance. They shoot large fireballs that are capable of hitting many targets. However, they are unable to attack dragons that are close to it.

  • Supply Ship

These ships are the easiest to take down as they provide energy easily and do not attack dragons. They are normally found beside larger ships in sheer numbers.

  • The developer of this game is a company called Ludia. They worked with DreamWorks Animation to make the game.
  • The game's storyline takes place before, during, and after the second movie.
  • The game has several differences from the franchise.
    • Hiccup encounters Valka several times before learning she's his mother.
    • Alvin the Treacherous is still an enemy of Berk.
    • Johann is still an ally of Berk.
    • Eret is among the dragon riders for some time and originally plans to learn to train dragons for Drago before changing sides.
    • Valka trains Toothless to his Titan stage instead of him triggering it himself.
    • Drago doesn't take the dragons after Stoick's death. Also, how Stoick died is not shown.
    • Mildew still tries to get rid of dragons and it is unknown if he was allied with Alvin or not.
  • Some of the dragon eggs in this game are inaccurate of the other ones in the official show or anywhere else shown officially, including the Whispering Death egg, which looks creamy-white with red spots in the Defenders of Berk show, but clear-white with a spiral (possibly the dragon) inside.
  • Players can get an exclusive look of the baby version of all dragons featured like Flightmares, Rumblehorns, Hotburples, and others like Timberjacks and Snaptrappers.
    • However there are some baby dragons, like the Skrill, that may not be accurate as it is drastically different from the one in School of Dragons. Which one is correct is unknown.
  • This game is Number 1 on the free side of the Games for IOS devices.
  • Titan Wing Toothless has the same design as Alpha Toothless, so there is a possibility that the Alpha Mode is only for Titan Wing Night Fury. Or the Alpha Mode is the same thing as the Titan Wing.
  • The most expensive dragon to buy with runes is the Screaming Death, which costs 150,000 runes.
  • Many different islands that you can search for dragon eggs on have made appearances in the books, television series, and movies.
    • The Monstrous Nightmare can be found on Lava-Lout Island.
    • The Smothering Smokebreath can be found on Raven Point.
    • The Deadly Nadder can be found in the Dragon's Nest.
    • The Typhoomerang can be found on Eel Island.
    • The Boneknapper can be found on Dragon Graveyard Island.
    • The Thornridge can be found on Dagur's Ship.
    • The Stormcutter can be found on the Isle of Night.
    • The Fireworm Princess can be found on Fireworm Island.
    • The Shivertooth can be found on Itchy Armpit.
    • The Grapple Grounder can be found on Breakneck Bog.
    • The Snow Wraith can be found on Hunter Island.
    • The Night Terror can be found on Outpost Island (Dragon's Edge).
  • Before Battle Mode was released, there was a Battle Mode button. When you press this, an image will reveal of a Skrill, Monstrous Nightmare, Thunderdrum, and other dragons in the background shooting boats and each other with a sign saying Coming Soon at the top.
  • Battle Mode is now known as Fleet Mode and there is another 'battle mode' known as Brawl.
  • Uncommon Dragons were used to be called Scarce Dragons before it was changed.
