Sand Marble Rally careerEdit

2016 Edit

In 2016, Dragon's Egg was fighting for the championship and was only 2 points behind championship leader Ghost Plasma after 6 races. He finally ended 3rd in the championship, as Big Pearl took second place from Dragon's Egg by 2 points, while Ghost Plasma became the 2016 Sand Marble Rally Champion.

2017 Edit

Dragon's Egg and his 2017 championship trophy.

2017 was marked by the rivalry between Quicksilver and Red Number 3 as they were leading the championship. Dragon's Egg, however, was also very strong throughout the season. He won Race 7 and always finished somewhere at the front of the pack. With the announcement that double points were on offer for the final race, both Dragon's Egg and Slimer suddenly had a chance of winning the championship. With championship leader Quicksilver getting stuck in the beginning and crashing out, it looked like Red Number 3 would take the championship, Dragon's Egg, however, finished a strong 2nd place, which earned him 34 points. This was enough to clinch the championship by one point over Red Number 3. Interestingly Dragon's Egg was the only marble from the top 4 to only win one race, as Red Number 3, Slimer and Quicksilver each won twice. Dragon's Egg was also one of only three marbles to not record any DNF's throughout 2017, the other two being Glassy and Black Knight.

2018 Edit

Dragon's Egg was the reigning champion in 2018 and wanted to defend his title. But in 2018, Dragon's Egg started very inconsistent; he ended 16th in the first race, then won Race 2, to then finish 19th (and last) in Race 3. Dragon's Egg wasn't in good shape. The final 5 races Dragon's Egg could never end higher than 8th. He, however, finished 7th in the championship, tied for points to Crazy Cat's Eye, but beating him with one race win. Apart from his victory in the second race, this was quite a mediocre season for Dragon's Egg.

2019 Edit

Dragon's Egg placed third in his qualifiers race. Although he got stuck, he got going again and caught up to the others quickly, and qualified for the A League for 2019.

Dragon's Egg had a poor start to the season. He earned his first DNF in the first race, where he suddenly stopped due to "fatigue", and finished the next race with no points. But then, he recovered nicely and finished in the top five in next four races, including his fourth career race win in Race 6, and climbed up to 4th in the standings. However, Dragon’s Egg failed to score any points in the next two races and dropped to ninth. This is Dragon's Egg's worst Marble Rally season yet.

Racer analysis and profile Edit

Dragon's Egg is a remarkable competitor with a very efficient racing style. His style contains a little bit of everything, combining e.g. Ghost Plasma's intelligent tactical games, Red Number 3's pure superior speed, Quicksilver's natural smoothness and Glassy's consistency. Consistency in particular seems to be Dragon's Egg's most major virtue and the key to his success over his years of competition. He has not DNF'd in a race in his first three seasons and in the process set a very impressive record for most consecutive finishes in SMR history. He is also consistent in terms of achieving constant success in competition. In fact he is the only marble to have won a race in all four seasons between 2016 and 2019. Another great ability of his is his sizeable knowledge about his own limits and physical boundaries. As a result he rarely overpushes himself and is able to balance his energy evenly throghout a race (a rare exception being the 2019 opener where he wore himself out early and stopped due to fatigue). Sometimes he would lag behind the leading pack and attack for the win towards the end. At other times, he would hold back and just silently finish in mid-pack without much grief, particularly if it could benefit him later. The best example being the final three-race stretch of 2017, where he resigned himself to 17th place in the eleventh race and subsequently used his saved strength to place in the top four in the two remaining races and clinch the championship. Overall, Dragon's Egg is without a doubt a very skilled competitor and an all-time great in the SMR. Though Red Number 3 is usually referenced as the best marble of all time due to highest number of championships and wins, Dragon's Egg holds the record for most career points and is still the only marble ever to beat Red Number 3 over a full season (though he was directly aided by double points).
