imo Lucy's mother Layla dissappeared/died to/for open/ing or close/ing the eclipse gate, or according to the Igneel, the dragons will counter this festival, so that, maybe Layla sacrificed herself to eliminate/protect dragon(s)/humans while she was doing that, she maybe cast a spell "someone mentioned above" to protect human kinds espicially her daughter, and we will see what was the relationship between Layla, dragons and 7 number
The dual DS magic that Shadoguardian theorized about is very interesting, but instead of it being Metal + earth, why not Metal + Poison?
After seeing the draw in score between Mermaid Heel and Lamia Scale, I'm definitely sticking to my old prediction. This match will be a draw. And Fairy Tail will win tomorrow in the 5th day, making victory 1 point over Sabertooth.
Will there be 7 1st generation DS?
One thing that we can discount, is the fact that Layla has had anything to do with Eclipse plan, since the construction of that gate has only began 7 years ago:
and Layla was already "dead" at that time.
I mean the fact that we have so little information about Layla could even lead into a situation, where Layla has been the previous "dragon king" and Lucy is going to inherit that title, which would also explain why the dragons have kept themselves hidden for about 7 years, since their "king" hasn't returned yet and Layla ordered them, before she "died" to wait for about 14 years, until Lucy gets older, and a little wiser before she is going to inherit the "Dragon King" title.
Of course, I don't think that such an theory has much validity, since what kind of reason the "dragon king" would have in mating with a "normal human", but, in all honesty, I could see Mashima doing something like that, or some other revelation of a similar magnitude - after all, he is pretty famous for making surprising revelations in his past work's, so there is nothing suggesting that he won't do something similar, when it comes to Lucy and her past, which apart from the things related to her "daddy problems", we don't know much about.

im a bit dissapointed in baccus from quatro puppy, there is no reason he should not have put up more of a fight against ichiya, but i think that fight was for more comedy relief than anything else
Right now I will write about what I believe will happened in the next chapter, and even about Sting, Rogue and their dragons.
I will even write about Igneel words and about the "Dragon king Festival".
I believe that this tag team match between Dragon Slayers will last only for the next chapter.
In fact after the next chapter we will have a break, so I believe that this fight will not be interrupted, in the next chapter will end this fight and the fourth day of the tournament.
I believe that the match will end in a draw.
To tell the truth at the beginning of this arc I thought that Gazille would have faced Rogue in the battle of the second day, there he would lose, then he would faced him in the fifth day after thanks to Urtear powerup.
Right now just as I said I believe that the match will end in a draw.
I believe this because Sabertooth can’t lose, otherwise Sting will be expelled by the tournament (and I don’t think that Rogue will be the only one who will not be able to withstand after 30 minutes).
I don’t even believe that Fairy Tail will lose, for this reason:
1) If they will lose the gap between Fairy Tail and Sabertooth will be too big, even if perhaps in the last day we will have more points.
2) Natsu can’t lose, Gazille even if he could became more powerfull thanks to Urtear, I don’t think that he will lose either, because seem that in the 3 months of training he was able to became a true dragonslayer (Now even Gazille has motion sickness).
3) The real power of Fairy Tail in the power of their bond, their friendship, is the group that made the difference not just the individual, just as Azuma think immediately before his defeat http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/237/16.
For that reason Gazille and Natsu can’t lose in this tag team, counting that Sting and Rogue fight individually, not as a team.
4) This tag team match is just only a starter of what we will have the fifth day.
5) With a draw Blue Pegasus will be able to close the gap that it has against the other team.
Just as nosebleed said in his post to page 8 of the comments of this thread the dragons are named after the elements that they represent.
So Vicelogia/Weisslogia counting that Weiss means White in german I believe that it came by something that is white, for this reason I believe that it’s snow or ice (if it so then perhaps Sting could create snowstorms.
Rogue’s dragon name is “Skyadrum”.
He could use the sound, if his name came by “drum”.
But in the truth I don’t think so, because every dragons can use the sound, when they shout.
We can see this when Natsu defeat Cobra, when he make dragon’s roar in chapter 150, or even with Acnologia (at the beginning of chapter 252).
Rogue is even know as shadow dragon, he could have that nickname for his appearance, but there is even the chance that he has that nickname thanks to his power, even I don’t think that he ate shadow.
If the name for his dragon don’t came by “drum”, then perhaps it came by “sky”.
Counting that Wendy is called Sky-dragon I don’t think that he can ate the air just like Wendy, put perhaps he can ate the clouds.
But counting that they have even a Lacryima installed there is the possibilities that they can use two elements, just like Natsu.
To tell the truth I hope that it’s not the case, that they have the lacryma because in someway they failed to became real dragonslayer, they were too weak, and for this reason they had to put the lacryma, just like Luxus.
Igneel speak of the two dragons that raised Sting and Rogue, after what I read I have the feeling that they could be really dead, Igneel could speak to them just like Lucy was writing letter to her mother.
But more likely he speak like that because they were not with him but in a different place.
I believe this because Igneel asks if “Human can exceed dragons…”, and if Sting and Rogue would have really killed their partents he would not ask that, because he would already knew that the answer is that they can.
I believe this particularly for Rogue, he is kind, counting that he was worried about Yukino, even if she was a member of Sabertooth only for one year, he would never kill the one who raised him.
For that reason I don’t even believe than the dragons are left to kill, because in fact they (at least for Rogue) would not even wanted to kill them in first place.
The only way that this could happened is if were the dragons who asked to Rogue and Sting to be killed.
They could have done it if after that Sting and Rogue would acquire a new power (perhaps thanks to dragon’s blood).
If this is the case then could happened that after the time Rogue and Sting would have changed their memories, and then they would began to believe that they killed them.
If this would be the case after the tournament, thanks to Natsu and Gazille Sting and Rogue would be able to regain their true memories.
From this chapter (in the truth I already believe that from the chapter which he and Grandine appeared for the first time, immediately after Gerard defeat) that the dragons were not in a different place, because they know what happened to the world, to what happened to Natsu and the others.
For this reason I don’t believe that Lucy’s mother sealed them in a different place and died in that process.
I believe this even because Layla when she died was not anymore a stellar spirit, she had not any stellar spirit (beside she had only 3 gold keys), infact this is what Caprico said to Loki http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/224/15 http://www.mangareader.net/fairy-tail/224/16.
A thing that I don’t know is how the dragons knew that there will be a “dragon king festival”, when 7 year ago (but perhaps they knew that even before of it, perhaps that was the reason why they left their “kid”) there were not any sign that this would happened, even because Zereff was not awaken yet.

i am hoping the battle between the dragon slayers doesnt end in one chapter i would rather see an epic battle that surpases the rest of the tournaments battles , than some lop-sided FT victory that ends in three panels
