      I feel like a have a decent pet, but I don't hatch often and don't like putting in the time it takes to monotonously train a pet.

      Re: [Satisfaction Survey] Which of the following statements do you most agree with?

      I had to vote for one, because I hatch regularly and have developed some nice pets. There have been said many things about the pet system......but it sure does keep us hatching for new talents, new pets, better stats...The randomfactor(or what you want to call it) that is responsable for all the faills and not too many "perfect" pets, forces us to hatch over and over again to strenghten wanted talents and try to keep unwanted talents weak or hatch them out of the offspring.. I can live with that system.....But the resources you need to train all the pets to epic and mega level are for regular(younger players) a major burden to take... So it lowers their motivation to work for a good megapet and more important for the game itself. Only the ones that have the gardens and money to sustain their resources can deliver mega pets almost at will. To me that should change and alter the system so players with less resources can have a better chance to go for the higher level pet too.

      Re: [Satisfaction Survey] Which of the following statements do you most agree with?

      Well I voted the top one as I do enjoy hatching and have many perfect pets, then after some thinking I decided I probably should have voted for the bottom one for one reason, that reason being crowns. I usually have crowns and because of those crowns I have 50 EMPs and 25 couches many energy elixirs and hatching resets. I see where its frustrating for some people who used all their mega snacks from their PBCs because they don't have peas or couches. When a pet fails for me I don't look at it as a big deal those snacks that I just lost I will have back in a couple days. In the end the system will always be easier with crowns. I recently started a new account I already can see how hard it is without huge gardens to supply you with gold and snacks. I still enjoy the pet system but I understand how hard it can be now.

      Edit-I just read Marc1's reply and thats what I am trying to say he wrote it much nicer then me though :P

      I rarely hatch and I'm unhappy with the system. Pet training was supposed to be fun! Now it's just a bulk that is necessary for survival in both PvP and PvE.

      o; Will you take a look at my Mammoth Case-Study thread and let me know what I'm doing wrong? I'm trying to mimic the methods I've been seeing, to "weaken" talents that I don't want and "strengthen" the ones that I want, but already I've had one epic fail and several adult fails. I know how to read talent-pools and I can tell when the talents I want are in the pool of a pet, but it seems like the talents that actually manifest are always random no matter what I try.

      (Btw, in case it isn't obvious, personally I voted for option two.)
      Your not doing anything wrong you just picked quite the challenge lol. Usually I am copying one pet over to a first gen new pet so I have everything I need on one pet and even a back up to kick out yucky talents. When picking 2 talents from one pet and two talents from another both having undesired slots you have a larger job ahead of you. I have done it myself but look forward seriously to 50 plus hatches and lots of getting the wrong pet back Use that epic pet though having 4 of 5 is good then figure out which pet is giving the off talent you don't want and kick it to the curb. Then you will have some other yucky talent creep in and have to do the same, lol it just is a rougher road when trying to onlu select 2 talents from 2 different pets to carry in especially when neither was perfect to start with. Each is giving you 16 talents now you don't want so the odds are not your friend

      Re: [Satisfaction Survey] Which of the following statements do you most agree with?

      There was no answer that fit my sentiment so I chose #3. I feel that I do have a good understanding of the pet system, but I do not hatch frequently and I still slow train with Rank 4 - 6 snacks, sometimes up to Mega. So it can take me up to 3 months or more to be training a pet. By that time Test Realm is usually up, so if I did any hatches, I know what they got. I certainly can "settle" with the pets I use, even if they are not "perfect." They are "good enough."

      I think the pet system has a lot of trial and error. I think I spend enough time with pet system (playing pet games) that I don't want to be spending my time hatching and destroying pets. I think I spend enough time gardening and my idea of fun is not industrial gardening. This part of the game is Toil. Now I suppose it's fun for some people and they don't see it as Toil.

      I hatch for new talents. I have projects but I am comfortable going months or years developing these pets. I am still working on the DeathBat, which took me 3 years just to farm it out of the Death Oni. I have a STPUD and a SSPUD and one with Power Up but I still don't have a SPLUD Death Bat.

      I don't see the urgency, particularly. I was one of the first to get Spritely, so I did have a SPD early on. But after that, it was more important that my PVP partner had SPD, so that it would be better for us as a team. It is not that I don't want a SPUD, but if I have a good SPPD with high resist, I'll take that over a low stat SPUD.

      Right now I don't have a SPUDF and I recognized that I had a disadvantage, but I don't see that as a reason to stop PvP. It's the same when I didn't have Defy or didn't have Sprite. Or in PvE, I could have a better PvE pet. I still do fine. And in PvP, we had a lot more disadvantages than getting outpetted and still could pull off a win.

      So there's nothing wrong with my strategy? I'm already minimizing my chances of failure by choosing pets that have manifested talents I want?

      In the first post I mixed my Gargantuan and Defy pet with my friend's Proof, Defy, Unicorn and Fairy pet. Fail #1 got Pips, Fail #2 got Smokescreen. I know where those talents came from but that doesn't help me, strategy-wise, at all, because the talents were unmanifested. Every pet has unmanifested talents that I do not want.

      Then there were the most recent 3 fails. Defy and Fairy + Proof and Unicorn = Sharp-shot? then Pain-giver? then Pips? Why are the manifested talents not manifesting in the offspring?

      I don't get it. The whole system is just too random and too much like gambling. There's too little strategy involved. I try to pick the best parents possible but the offspring is still hopelessly random.

      Re: [Satisfaction Survey] Which of the following statements do you most agree with?

      I had to get help with my first actual good pet. I have no idea how to develop a pet as the post puts it. If there weren't people on central who put their pets up for hatching, I would still be stuck with my lame colossus. After I got one good pet, I could find some pets to hatch with and kind of stumbled upon a few really good pets. I am not entirely happy with the current pet system, but obviously some people have it figured out since I see a lot of really good epic and mega pets out there, I just don't like the process of developing your perfect pet to take so much time and disappointment. Therefore, I settle for a pet with all desirable talents rather than a pet with the exact set of talents that I want.

      Re: [Satisfaction Survey] Which of the following statements do you most agree with?

      I have many wonderful pets ( I guess whether or not any of them is perfect depends on individual preference), I hatch to help others and others have hatched to help me. ( Thank you ) I find the pet system to be very frustrating, exhausting, tedious, etc. etc. Training to mega requires a huge time investment even with mega snacks, the pet training games are the type of games I would never choose to play otherwise, and frankly on occasion I get burnt out from it and just stop playing the game. I already have a full time job, I don't want my "fun time" to feel like another full time job.

      That being said, so far I have wandered back eventually each time I have wandered off, I have really enjoyed those times I was able to help someone get something they really wanted, and I have danced around the room like a 5 year old at Christmas when I have been able to end up with something wonderful for me.

      While I firmly believe with no work it wouldn't be fun, I would really like to see more balance between the fun and the work of pet training/hatching. Right now it's a bit lopsided.

      I hatch often, but only have one perfect SPUDF pet. I don't think I will go any further though. Of course, there are a lot of other great talents out there that would be great to have, but getting that one pet to mega was enough for me. My hatches now, I only take to adult. If they get a talent I'd really like, I might continue it. But most of them get Fairy, or Spritely, or Unicorn, and I seriously have about a billion pets with those talents.
