    the cross outs are normal - happened last time

    everyone in wave 1 made out like a bandit

    druff’s stable can now grow exponentially and is probably worth $20k+

    Yeah I'm a little worried this might crater, so my now 7-strong stable of horses (provided I actually get them) isn't as exciting to me as it could be.

    I can already see some glaring technical errors in their drop.

    For example, due to all the screen movement of horses appearing and disappearing, it's easy to accidentally click on the horse itself, where it brings you to a description page of the horse, with a beautiful 3D rendering. That's the last thing they want when their server is being strained.

    Furthermore, even without that, I notice that when freezing is occurring, my laptop fan starts spinning, indiciating a heavy CPU event. This means that the webpage isn't just stuck -- it is heavily processing something (likely a rapid refresh of some kind), which is likely taxing on their end, as well. So I think it's very possible that a drop with a ton of users causes their system to heat up exponentially, and then you get the epic fail we're seeing.

    Clearly the way they have it set up isn't working. Even if it worked flawlessly, it has logistical issues, such as the problem where horses are constantly disappearing and the screen shuffles, plus the issue where it's multiple steps to buy them, and you keep having the problem where you go through those steps and find out someone was ahead of you, and it's back to square one.

    They really should have some sort of queue where you select the type of horse(s) you're looking for, then when it's your turn, it spits out a few for you, and you have some short period to buy one (maybe 60 seconds).

    I'm just riffing here with ideas off the top of my head, but it's insane that they did this almost the exact same way as last time, and had a worse result.

    And as I said earlier, the Monday update is dreadful communication, given the low confidence right now. The correct thing is to promise like 10% off all horses for the replacement drop, and then to give updates on a blog every few hours or whatever.

    i think if it craters or not depends on how fun the actual game is, it sure looks it at first impressions at least

    i think as with all nft's its still a really new market, so if you believe in the concept its still a pretty exciting position you are in

    if you are long on the product id still be pretty happy with what you have bought, if you were just after a quick flip then id imagine it will be a buyers market in the short term

    Todd’s put in maybe $4-$4.5k so far. He could get almost all that back today by selling his 4 cheapest horses (that cost him about $750 total) while still keeping his 3 most expensive (by far)

    I may sound like a shill but the zed economy is strong. Look how many times and ways top shot failed

    all zed needs to do is fix their drops - the actual product is amazing (and addictingly fun)

    Latest problem discovered:

    Remember how I said there were plenty of horses left to buy between 5:10 and 5:19 from Wave 1?

    Well, apparently I didn't have to wait until 5:10. They said we did, but it turns out that wasn't necessary. Someone exploited this and got 34 (!!) horses. I actually waited 'til 5:10 and didn't test this. What a joke.

    If Druff gets 5 horses from a cancelled drop then thatís the most ridiculous thing ever. Hope you do of course but just shows how AIDS this thing truly is.

    genesis horses are already named, you can name any horse you breed

    already suggested KROQ Ken to druff

    i will of course be naming one of my first offspring yebsite

    i'm honesty so jealous of druff - he's pahticipated in 2 drops and has gone from a no-horser to a whale stable, and he still gets another chance when the drop resumes

    the lowest drop price for a horse was $123, and those horses go for $900+ on the secondary market

    the person who was able to get 34 horses made about $30k minimum in 20 minutes

    the way it was set up with the 10 minute cool down period after your first purchase i only had enough weth for one horse because i thought getting more than one would be near impossible

    after druff said he was able to buy 5 i rushed an eth transfer and it literally hit my zed account with 10 seconds before my drop only to get SHUT OUT

    I had a Wave 4 Drop (still do I guess) and the problems started happening in the Wave 1 and 2 drops. Which were 15 minutes each and had problems, so Wave 3 and 4, mine got canceled for now. Surprised me how its only Friday, and they said they'll communicate again Monday, which is days away. Hopeful it all works out and this was just the result of so much interest, maybe unexpectedly in this game now. It is a great idea and hopefully long=run this whole situation becomes inconsequential in the grand scheme of things of course. Zed looks so fun, and has so much potential I believe, but I just hope now they don't Top Shot it away also now, sad

    (still have good hope for this, Zed looks fantastic in theory)
