There are some good things in DracoGo, like the map puzzle, dragon vision (see dragons and chests in about 1km radius and catch/open them all without neeing to move). Magic spells that definitely speed up the game, The chests also contain equipment to wear which makes gameplay smoother.
BUT, the ‘buildings’ are placed poorly. Some are in impossible or dangerous locations. There are portals, which enable going into a different realm. Then one has to find the mother of dragons to hatch a timed egg. Today, I did this, only to find that the MoD was on private property, just out of reach from the street.
Given that they have an incredibly rich set of data to work with, all the OpenStreetMap data at their fingertips, this is really frustrating. OSM has the info on where schools and other non public buildings/zones are, which highways are restricted or for private use only. The towers are almost without exception in people’s gardens. And that is the best case scenario for many of them.
I reached level 27, gold league and I’m the only one playing in my neighbourhood, whicih is unsurprising, as it’s also impossible to play from a bus, even when it moves slowly or from a bicycle and on foot going from the portal to the Mother of Dragon often takes too long.
It’s unfortunate, but they’ll have to do better if they are serious about competing with Niantic. I played PoGo for a year and then it was time to quit the game, DracoGo is better in many aspects, but not good enough.
