I really do not believe anyone has discussed this topic. I would like to get members of the forum to give an idea of what they think each size differential, based on a particular dragon, means.

For example:

At Least Twice Your Size: 254%-227%? (from my battle calculations)
Noticeably larger: 133%-121.5%
A bit larger: 121.5%-109.5?%
About the same size: 109.5%-92%
A bit smaller: 92%-84%
Noticeably smaller: 84%-75%
At Most Half Your Size: 39%-44%? (from my battle calculations)

When someone attacks another dragon, or when someone is defending, it would be nice to have some idea of the general percentage range is for each size. At larger sizes, this may be important when figuring out just how much smaller or larger a particular dragon is in relation to your dragon's size. It would also help out in figuring out if the foe may be capped. If this has been mentioned any where, I apologize. I still believe this information has some importance to more fanatical PD players.

Is there anyone with any suggestion on how these sizes might be percentage wise?

Hmmm, it may or may not have been mentioned, but not as its own thread that I am aware. It will be interesting to see what people have to say.

I'm sure it has been discussed because I remember the theory, but I can't remember where.

The theory was:-

 75% -  83%        Noticably smaller
 84% -  91%        A bit smaller
 92% - 109%       About your size
110% - 121%      A bit bigger
122% - 133%      Noticably bigger

I may be the odd point out here and there but this was the basis of the speculation.

This is what I have:

Pet Dragon Size Comparison
Noticeably smaller = about 75-83% your size
A bit smaller = about 84-91% your size
About same size = about 92-111% your size
A bit bigger = about 112-122% your size
Noticeably larger = about 123-133% your size


It's about the same.

This will help me as well as everyone else on the forums. I can't believe that the dragon that was attacking was so much bigger even after putting on a little weight and maxing out. At around 4000kg for my dragon and in the large category for the other two (around 5000kg). At least I can use this to gauge how a battle will go. I will update the original post so everyone can search the information easily.

I am going to bump this to keep it on the front page for a while. If you feel like posting on the thread regarding the information provided and your possible strategies, please do so. I would like to see it stay front and center for all members of the forums, new and old alike.

I think maybe we should add a couple of size differentials. One at the top end and one at the bottom. I will update my original post.

I'm not a math person.  What would this accomplish?

These 2 differentials are on the extreme end of the fighting spectrum. These ones do not appear very often, but they have happened. I do not know the percentages for them, but I do know they exist. So I decided to add them to the list.

They're not the extreme end . . ..

I've seen worse when I accidentally followed a link and attacked tesserex . . .

At the time he was about 4 size catagories above me . . .. he was listed as "Absolutely Enormous" or something like that . ...

Did you want me to add that one as well Masterfool? I haven't heard of anything bigger than the 2 additions I just put up. I thought they were a bit extreme for the most part, but it seems there has been worse.

As far as i know, they are impossible to achieve now.  There was originally a "bug" (it was intentional) that allowed dragons to attack any dragon larger than they were, regardless of size.  But that was corrected when someone posted it in the forum and some people

*looks around*

Ok, when I was lead into attacking Tesserex.

I really do not think so. I would just like to give this a bump to put it closer to the action. The information benefits all players.
