You lost 2 gold.
Maharette helped you with this fight.

BlackDream, and myself were 1 day old. I was attacked by 3 dragons, so I asked for some help froma  friend....how is it possible to lose even with the help of a bigger, much more experienced dragon?

When someone assists you, the assister doesn't fight the opponent. You do. The assisting dragon adds to your percentage of winning; it doesn't garuntee it.

You can have a 0 day old newborn being assisted by a 100+ day old, 5,000 c.s., massive dragon and still lose.
I know, this, in a way, doesn't make much sense, but it's how the system is.

First, search out the forum. . . this topic is VERY well covered in LOTS of places.

But, just to add to the discussion, your dragon only get HELP, not a free victory.

Basically, the assisting dragon can lend you up to 50% of his combat power.  HOWEVER, you can only accept up to 50% of YOUR combat power.  So if you have very low combat power, you can't get very much in assistance.  Even from the largest, most powerful dragon in the game.

not QUITE the way it works, Archimedes, because it's based on Combat Power - the amalgamation of FS and Weight - not just pure FS . . .

Yep. If the combat does not distribute to the battle; then we wouldn't have the system set up so that stronger dragons can replace weaker dragons during assisting.

I remember when it used to be adding your full power to your ally, it wasn't very fair on the attackers, you had this cavers who were ultra small hoarders, basically depending as many considerably larger dragons as possible, to amass huge win-loss records that were basically impossible for any legitimate attacking dragon to beat.

Well thank goodness it was changed. No one wants to have a surprise waiting for them at the end of their raid. Luckily the person only lost 2 gold.

Yeah I got this great image, when a friend who had a new born, asked for aid, of two little baby dragons hissing at each other, then my huge (combat focused) dragon coming in, landing, snorting, flicking a claw at the raider (sending it flying in a cartoonish manner off into the distance), yawning then leaving without even saying goodbye, whilst my friend did their victory dance.

Yeah I have too much time on my hands.

Says you...I'm in the same situation. I am never attacked so I spend time assisting my friends 24/7. Don't get me wrong, I like assisting. Even after the 100 assist achievement.
