Been meaning to ask - do you think there is any connection between the RR and HTTYD Songwings? Seems too coincidental to have the same name and have Jack and others working on both areas of the DW Franchise ...
i am truly sorry for accidently editing your user page because i did not publish the edit i just typed the words because i got confused for the nico marlet badge i think because i left it for a while and there was a blackout and my computer shut down and must have published it. i am ashamed of myself : ( : ( : (
Hey, I saw you were changing some of the hybrids' classes to that of one parent, then saw you are referencing a comment by CT Taylor (who is that? I should probably know). Can you link the reference please, maybe just those that aren't in SOD. Also you said s/he said they are the same class as the second parent ... how do you determine which is the second parent? Just alphabetically?? Thank you :)
Very interesting! Really shows an interesting perspective on the thought that goes into making these games. What players percieve is so limited (i.e. something doesn't work for them, complaints). I wonder if we should make a page for this person? Or somehow reference his (her?) page.
EDIT: My post didn't post before you posted! I do see where it says about the class ... but on second look, I am wondering if he might be referring to the whole "valorous" etc 'classes'? Since the classes as we think of them don't really figure into the game.
Seems so arbitrary what the "second parent" is though? I haven't looked into the Legends Evolved stuff. Do they give a class? The only classes I know of are from the ones in SOD. For example, SOD lists the Ghastly Zapplejack as a Mystery class which ... wouldn't work since H comes before T ... unless you just refer to "Zippleback.
LE sorts the Galewind (which you may have seen was a concept name for Galeslash) as Sharp class, same as the Stormcutter, which is alphabetically second. It also sorts the Gutbuster (Boltstomper) as Strike, like the Skrill.
I don't know if they have other hybrids, but some could argue only 2 examples is not enought to say for sure.
On the very last page it says CT lives in London now. I'm almost certain HamishLovesHotDogs moved to England ... also we are kind of mentioned in one of the sections, and also "fans" are mentioned multiple times :)
In Dragons: Rise of Berk, the Purple Death is the leader of the Marooned Dragons while the Shellfire is the leader of the Grim Dragons, just like how the Green Death is the leader of the Brute Dragons and the Foreverwing is the leader of the Seedling Dragons. Therefore, the Purple Death and the Shellfire should be categorized as Alpha Species as well.
Also, Scardian the Deadly Nadder is the Alpha of a mixed group of dragons, the Grim Gnasher pack on Vanaheim has an Alpha who has red scales, and Krogan’s Singetail is the leader of the Dragon Flyers’ Singetails. Their character pages are categorized as Alpha Dragons.
The Bewilderbeast is the only dragon in the franchise to be called Alpha. It is the one that most often stands at the top, and is able to control other dragons. In the same way, the Red Death is one of the very few Queen dragons, together with the Fireworm, Night Terror, Shadow WIng and Speed Stinger. Those are able to control other individuals within their own species. Other "alpha" dragons like the Foreverwing, Purple Death, Screaming Death and Shellfire have dragons following them out of their own free will, not because they are controlled or commanded.
As far as I know the mini toys were released just last week, or at least around new year. There's Toothless, Stormfly, Light Fury, and the 2 hybrids. There are other LE toys like plushies and larger figurines,but they have been around for longer.
I'm just surprised at the hybrids. Especially since I hadn't heard Ludia getting in on the toy scene before. Well, I guess Dreamworks can do what they want since they own the property. It just seems maybe DW has gotten a little haphazard with marketing and direction of the Franchise, maybe? Like, what is the purpose of releasing two TU hybrids. They don't make sense to the average person unless you know about the game ...
Dean himself said the kids were 8 and 5 respectively when asked at Annecy 2019 last June. So yet again, we have a pretty major inconsistency here *shakes head*. However, this info was obtained via word of mouth, so there is no official reference to prove it. Only the word of attendees, and there was more than one who reported that's what Dean said.
Can you by chance provide a link where we can view the script? If we had that, these new ages would be considered more official and welcome on their pages. Without a link, I don't think they're any more "confirmed" than their first ages are.
For the record, I personally think these new ages make more sense for HTTYD3. Homecoming on the other hand... Ugh, yet another reason to not accept the special as canon. 🤦
It does have some small errors tho... at one point Dean was probably so focused on Barf&Belch's intro that he called Hookfang a Zippleback. Other smaller differences include a Scauldron putting out the fire a Shovelhelm caused while cooking fish, and the Deathgrippers' venom being green. Also I guess a Deathgripper was supposed to injure Cloudjumper's wing a bit, which I didn't see in the movie. Right know I haven't noticed anyhing else, but others may catch different things than me.
Oh wow... Thank you! That's good enough for me. The first ages can be listed in their trivia sections, then.
Also, we decided a while back that Hiccup's ages in the flashbacks shouldn't be listed in his infobox because we were only focusing on his ages during the main narrative of each installment. Really cool we have them confirmed though, and they should be mentioned in the Early Life header of his biography page.
The Alpha Species category clearly states that it’s for dragons that have the ability to become an alpha among other dragons, and the end of the second film clearly provides a concrete evidence that a certain species is able to earn the position in the dragon hierarchy.
"Alpha Species" would imply that Night Furies are Alphas by nature, which they are not. The only dragons we have in the franchise that are naturally alphas over species other than their own are Red Deaths and Bewilderbeasts. On the other hand, if it stands for dragons that would be able to become alphas, then you should include nearly half of the species we currently have. The category's name and description should either be changed, or it should not be included on pages where it doesn't belong.
