First of all, the Rainbow Dragon(and any other dragon not officially released and in DCW pages) is merely rumour at this point. Vapourware. Myth. Doesn't exist in SP's Dragon City game. You can't get it. Period.
Sorry to burst your bubble, but there you have it.
To those who have been spreading the rumours, we're keeping an eye on you. I'm supposed to be the nicest Admin other than Jens, so I will tell you this: No more rumour-mongering. You cross that line, I will ban you. No more warnings.
If the Rainbow Dragon becomes fact at some point in the future, this rule will be lifted, but those that have been banned will continue to serve the remainder of the ban. The ban is for breaking DCW rules, not for the Rainbow Dragon / some other dragon.
Just in case you are wondering... We're predicting (actually nmtan, our Breeding Expert ran the numbers) that breeding the Archangel Dragon + Metal Dragon will result in either a Metal Dragon or an Archangel Dragon.0
So, this evidence to prove that the Rainbow Dragon is un-released or semi - released.
I don't know about this Rainbow Dragon. If the contributors got mistake by posting this"How to get Rainbow Dragon", please write this to Social Empires Wiki. Rainbow Dragons are available in SE. But, I don't have ways to help these mistakes.
I gave him a 3 day block, but I left his talk page open so he could protest if he thought I was making a mistake. Check over there.
In the interest of damage control, a greater degree of disclouser is needed. I'll answer the way Jens has in the past with similar issues.
Q: What is the Rainbow Dragon?
A: Unreleased Content.
At this time, placeholder data and images of the Rainbow Dragon exist on the Social Point servers. Hayrullah Aygül uploaded 3 of those images which I have since deleted. The only in-game appearance of this dragon is in an advertisement.
While most dragons that have placeholder information are eventually released, there is no way to be sure when or if they will even be released at all. Since the data exists on the Social Point server, hackers are able to get the game to use it. That does not make this part of the game yet.
In the spirit of good fun, not spoiling surprises, and not spreading rumors about data that may change drastically, it is our policy not to release the information that Social Point doesn't bother keeping very well hidden.
After a discussion between myself, CyBeRdrgn, Nic.Nex and I guess NMtan (who didn't really care since he's up to his neck in fixing code for the update), we have decided to change the status of the Rainbow Dragon from "unreleased" to "semi-released".
Those who were already banned will remained banned as their violation in policy is not forgiven by a change in the status of this dragon. Please stand by while we round the edges out on this one.
Untill that process is complete, this post remains valid and we will continue to enforce it AS IS.
The announcement above is just for the peoples who played trough mobile version. It was released at 25th July.. and if this announcement has affect for us who played with PC version.. we didn't found Rainbow Dragon in our DC game until today.
Since this dragon appears on popup image.. so to prevent more rumours and ridiculous questions.. we've concluded that Rainbow Dragon as "semi-released". And you could check it out here : Rainbow Dragon
Why you keep asking the same question many times..?! didn't you a mobile version player..?! do you found this dragon in your DC game..?! -- wait until your updating progess finished and then take a conclusion for your self.
Btw, i think you've just started a new rumour.. i'll let CyBeRdrgn to give his consideration regarding what you've just posted here.
No way, that's impossible! Rainbow is not yet released, not yet breedable. According to your picture, if you even try, you will always get Archangel or Metal from the combination ArchangelMetal
I know but it is how breeding system works. If it cannot find any dragon breedable suit those elements (assuming - currently no dragon have these elements) => system will find another option: that is the parents.
P/s: Your dragon must be from a hacked game, no way you can breed it yourself
I'm waiting for Mobile Users to tell me if they have either bought a Rainbow Dragon in the shop, or bred it. I don't really want to buy an S4 or iPhone just to check. But I will borrow one to check if there is a report. =D
So, if you're going to tell me something like that, make sure you have your facts right, or you may be banned.
All right then, its 'Official -- Rainbow Dragon is back on the unreleased list, as it is not available by any means short of hacking. When it becomes available in the future, we will move it to the available list.
Thanks to MRBJ & Simonetti for your help in resolving this issue!
FYI, there are many more dragons that are on the unreleased list, because SP is not yet ready to release them. The error that caused many of you to think that they have been released is probably the fault of their Marketing Dept (which as I know for dealing with Marketing Dept from various organisations, is staffed by people who are anxious to get information out -- sometimes too quickly) not coordinating properly with the Tech Dept. I trust that this episode has taught you to take what Marketing says with a pinch of salt. Look for the truth in your shop. If it's not there, it's not breedable.
Let me repeat -- there are many dragons not ready for release in SP's database. This means:
1) There's lots of dragons for you to look forward to.
2) They're not in their final form yet.
Cheers, and please help educate the newbies hanging around asking similar questions.
Any more questions? I estimate we have answered most of the important ones.
Please note: The Admins have decided after a group discussion to allow users to discuss semi-released dragons, which will be considered to be neither "unreleased" nor "available". We don't really want to ban anyone, but rules are rules.
You may discuss within limits such dragons, bearing in mind that any data you have is likely to be wrong the moment it is actually released (if it ever is). No misinformation will be tolerated. If you don't know, say you don't know. If it is a guess, say it is a guess.
Personally I find all the discussion of unreleased dragons to be pointless -- we do not know what data is real and what is only a placeholder. Still, in the effort to allow you guys to have fun, we are permitting you to have some flights of fancy.
Have fun, guys -- but don't mislead people with information we Admins know to be incorrect. That will get you banned 3 days the second time, and permanently banned the third.
This is a dangerous question, for asking as well as answering. The fact is we don't know, but I recommend you frequently check the Dragon City. It's an Official App Page. Ussually, when a dragon is about to release, they will have some posts about it.
Looked through all the comments until I got bored. Looked on my iPhone. Rainbow Dragon is available as a purchase. It is Archangel &Metal. Don't know if it is breedable. Don't care. But it is out there, not a rumour. Not a hack. I can take a photo and download it to you as proof.
This Thread has been about DCW Policy on unreleased Dragons since before the Rainbow was released. It was not about any specific Dragon, although it may look that way. The Rainbow was merely scapegoat as it was a popular question during that period. Surely that much is obvious. Any more questions?
It might be a good idea if you didn't comment on topics you aren't very familiar with -- i.e., when you "... don't know..." and "... don't care..." As you said, you are new.
Not that it matters, but... consider the time-stamp of posts. The Rainbow was only released for breeding this year. The last post on this thread is August last year. That should mean to you that you need to find out if the Rainbow was released before the last post before you posted a claim that the post was or may have been in error.
More important, without understanding the background to this post, why should and would you comment? It looks to me like you skimmed the posts and decided that the posters didn't realize that the Rainbow has been released.
As I have already said, this thread is about Policy, not about the Rainbow. This thread has a simple background -- to catch the eye of those during that period who believed that the Rainbow had been released, to start an official thread for the clarification regarding the Rainbow and to warn them that our Policy is to ban those who contributed to the rumours.
As it turned out, this thread achieved its aim. There were only one or two bans under this Policy after this thread started.
