Why Did You Start Playing DML?

Wed Aug 28, 2019 1:03 pm
Hi guys!

I thought it might be nice to have a little discussion about how everyone came to start playing DML? I know many of you have been dedicated players for a long time, while some have just started a few months ago, so it might be a fun way for me to get to know you all. What was it that got you interested in DML for the first time? Did a friend recommend it? Were you interested in a game about dragons, and if so why DML?

I'll start: I first found DML when it was just Dragon Mania, and was playing similar games at the time. Not ones to do with dragons necessarily, just these sorts of tycoon, town-building style games. I saw that it had some RPG-like combat element too, and I liked the idea of collecting all these creatures, so I gave it a shot. I didn't play it much back then, but then a couple of years later I saw an advert for DML - the 'Legends', one - and thought it looked familiar. I downloaded it to give it a go, and was much more interested the second time around!

I don't remember for sure, but I know that my classmate told me about this game. Then I wasn't really good player and reinstalled the game many times. Now I play from the start about 440 days and I'm not gonna stop playing DML!

Nice idea, Adam. I think it's one thing that actually hasn't cropped up over the life of the forum.

Hmmm.... It's a while ago now. I guess I was scrolling through the windows shop looking for something to kill time with and came across DML. I love dragons. I loved the graphics in the screen shots. 4 and a bit years on and I'm still playing.
No dragon shall be homeless by 2020!

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
Playing DML since April 2015 is probably not a very good sign, then.  :)

For me  it was in my laptop . 
I have  only ever  played  the  card games  that are in the 'puters.
And  many years  ago  played  Duck hunt and  Legend of Zelda, with my son ..That was  it for  my game playing.
And never  played  on line  stuff.
I saw  ya  can play free , so I started playing. I like dragons..
I ride  a Valkyrie motorcycle, that just happens  to be  called  a Dragon..
So I just had  to play ...

I  have  only been playing for a few  months.. So I'm still learning .. But having a blast .
Collecting Dragons  breeding,battling them .. 

I run a farm/ranch and  breed real livestock ~ Horses and  Longhorn cattle ..
So   this is a way for me to  getaway from the real world..

I'm almost 60 yrs. I don't  have a FB  acct.. or a cell phone.. 



PS  ... This should  be a sticky...
It's  fun to read  about everyone...

Almost for the same reasons as BE.
New Windows Phone with a touch screen combined with the Holidays leading to a FreeToPlay game suggestion in the Store.
Liked the graphics, love collecting, the quests had an actual story behind it,...
And then with the introduction of clans we found new friends (or at least kind of).
And then came the events.
And one day I found this lovely place here (bout a year too late) and dug through all the Crazy Train posts and real game tips.
And shortly after that I discovered the wiki.

But what got me hooked was the breeding / collecting combo with the occasional events thrown into the mix. Emphasis on Occasionally, mind you.
I missed about 2-3 days in total in all the years I think 😊

After watching a multitude of DML ads while playing another game (which I no longer play) I finally relented and downloaded it to my iPad.

At the time I was playing "Ice Age Adventures". Liked the idea of collecting different animals. And after watching dozens of video ads about DML, decided to give it a shot. Started on a Windows Phone and got my progress transferred to an Android phone this April. I have been playing the game for over 500 days so far :)

New laptop, browsing through the Windows Store, fell in love with the graphics :) Found the forum about 4 months later along with the CTG thread and never looked back. Over 3 years later, while not happy with too many events or the new Dungeon, my addiction to the game continues :)

After getting a new phone, i installed a few games so i could play them when i had free time. While watching adds on one of them, i found dml and said let's give it a try. At first I was pretty clueless(I still am :P) but now I've been playing for over 400 days now!
