Thats not the idea of the new festive approach though. The idea is that the festives from hueso and moving forwards, are evolvable as new tiers are released.
So, i currently have all hueso shards, so they no longer drop for me. However, in 4 weeks when the new tier is released, they will drop again so hueso can evolve to the new tier. They will then stop dropping for me again untill the tier after that is released.
The problem lies in the the future of this idea,
As someone mentioned above.
In a years time we will have 5 festives. Once a new tier is released you have to collect 5 different dragons shards which massively waters down the drip from drac chests until its done. And festives, generally, are not good for a lot of players. I for instance, haven’t even bothered hatching hueso and don’t have any plans to. So why would i want hueso shards to drop every time a new tier is released?
Edit: i am not condemning the idea despite what my post may seem. I LOVE the idea of always having a dragon / dragons that evolve as i do. Nothing worse than getting a dragon you love and then retiring it 8 weeks later. And eventually i have no doubt that PG will make another festive again that i do love. I just think the idea needs to be tweaked. No idea how they could implement it though. As a year down the line i might only have 1 festive i love. Whereas another player may have 4. So no idea how they can code a way to turn off the shards from dropping for each player.
