For the last three seasons in War Dragons, we have released the second wave of Dragons 4 weeks after the start of the season. This is the first Winter season where this pattern would take effect.
However, due to the Wintertide season beginning on December 6th, this would mean the second wave of Tempest Dragons would be released on January 3rd, which is uncomfortably close to the holiday season. We want to make sure we have our full staff on hand to support the release of these dragons, so we are going to be pushing back the release of the second dragon wave to January 10th.
The Tug of War event is going live today, and along with the event, we will be updating our in-game messaging to reflect the changes noted above. You can expect to see the second wave of Tempest Dragons (which will be the second Legendary Dragon and our final Mythic Dragon) on January 10th, 2018.
Thanks for your understanding while we prepare to take some time off at the end of the year. We’ll be back again first thing in January with these Tempest Dragons and much, much more!
PS - That beautiful, snowy winter map reskin we talked about in the Winter Season Preview? It’s on the way! You can expect to see your base covered in snow before the 25th, or Christmas Day, arrives. We’ll be previewing the winter map reskin on our Twitch stream next Wednesday!
