Thanks to every Dragon Lord out there for playing, pillaging, and enjoying War Dragons in these four years. We’ll have some more announcements to celebrate War Dragons’ 4th birthday in the coming days. Here’s to many more! :tada:


Wow! Those are some really interesting stats on the combined totals for all accounts in the game. I’m wondering what other really interesting stats there are to share in the combined 4 years of the game… :eyes:

I’m sort of curious about:
Egg tokens earned
Bases destroyed
Wars fought
Teams created
Teams disbanded (this one might be a bit depressing lol)

Any other thoughts on additional statistics that might prove interesting?

  • March/April 2019 rebuilt the 300 wall

These are super interesting and I’d also be curious about them! Happy to pass it along to see if that’s something we can find and share. :smiley:

There’s also the discounting of breeding too, it is worth mentioning!

Ah, true! This happened in September of 2018!

The month I joined war dragons was a huge milestone. Lol

Most important addition ever :chunk::chunk::chunk::blue_heart::blue_heart::blue_heart:


Wasn’t it Fall 2016 with Nightshade? Then followed by Winter 2016 with Tarand? Or was Fall 2016 not a season?

Game birthday reminds me of


Thank you for the gifts. :kissing_heart::kissing_heart::kissing_heart:


Thank you! :partying_face:

Thanks for the gifts!:+1:t2: I started playing 11 months after WD inception!


Perhaps the most terrifying stat:

Over two hundred and nineteen thousand years of time spent in-game :astonished:


I think it’d be really cool to show people when each tier came out! I started in April 2015 and it’s been fun to watch that progression. I also know MANY players would love a dragon-timeline including all divines. (Id be happy to make a pretty one with some additional information).

Also perhaps add when new events were added? Let’s get some more 2015 dates!!


Sept 2015 is my starting date…dear god. Where have the years gone? Spent like 2 years fixing my “breeding-to-base” situation :exploding_head:.


i dont know exactly when i started , but last spring season dragons are my first divines , so probably 1 year

How about : https://www.twitch.tv/videos/35280332 :smirk:

Nise game! Thanks for good time! Happy birthday :balloon::gift::confetti_ball::birthday::tada:



The first season was Fall 2016. It had Skarr, Nightshade, Ebon, and Phasmos. Winter season had Tarand, Snowdrop, Tengu, and Algor.
