    The event resource is called Footballs. They can be traded and are listed in the Storehouse (Event tab) as usual.

    Footballs can be gathered in a variety of ways:
    • Collectible footballs spawn on the home zone
    • Normal Adventures will drop footballs, including scenarios, mini-missions and ventures
    • Event adventures from the event calendar always drop a fixed amount of footballs
    • Event quests reward footballs
    • Treasure hunts will reward footballs on top of the usual loot
    • Event achievements reward the player with Footballs upon completion
    • The merchant
    • Trading with other players

    In 2018 we introduced the quest chain A Host of Responsibilities, that starts at level 22 or above. It deals with the costs and responsibilities of hosting tournament matches on your island. The rewards focus on coins, a stacking population growth buff (that is immediately applied; it doesn't go to the star menu), and a big reward for completing the whole chain. The new quest chain's sub-quests unlock after a certain number of days after your first login during the event, and not the event start.

    For the first 15 days of the event, a new quest in this chain will be unlocked and starts if or when you have finished the preceding one. For example, if you don't finish the first quest until the third day, then you will get the second quest immediately upon completing it, followed by the third quest after the second one is done. If you then complete the third quest on day three, you will still not receive the fourth quest until the fourth day of the event. The daily time during which a new quest is unlocked should match the first time that you logged in during the event.

    Every day, you will receive a random quest, similar in scope to regular daily quests, that will reward various tactical resources. Active premium time will not offer a second quest!

    A tournament quest chain will guide you through the mechanics of the event, in regard to collecting of tactical resources, production of tactics buffs and their use in the event scenarios. The quest chain is linked to the Fixture List, as the quests will often ask you to open certain doors.

    In order to access the Fixture List, just click on the icon next to your avatar.

    There is a total of 21 doors. You can open one door each day. Opening missed doors for gems has been increased to 100 gems for normal doors and 300 gems for special doors due to a much higher value in the calendar.

    Don't forget to open the doors daily and also remind your friends to do so!

    Type: Regular door
    Amount: 11
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for 100 gems afterwards
    Requirement: It doesn't matter if previous doors are still closed or not
    Rewards: Provides basic rewards (such as resources), sometimes chosen randomly

    Type: Adventure door
    : Can be opened any time for free, once the respective date was reached
    Requirement: It doesn't matter if previous doors are still closed or not
    Rewards: One of the Summer Event Adventures

    Type: Special door
    Amount: 5
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for 300 gems afterwards.
    Requirement: All previous doors need to be open
    Rewards: Most special doors offer a choice between several rewards when opened

    There are 12 different Tactical Resources which you can use in the Provision House to produce Tactical Items. These tactical resources are tradeable and can be acquired in the following ways:

    • As loot from regular adventures
    • As collectables on the home island
    • As additional loot from treasure searches
    • As a reward for event quest
    • As purchase from the in-game merchant

    Tactical resource Adventure Drop Treasure Loot Collectibles
    Shoe Item Icon Item Icon
    Banana peel Item Icon Item Icon
    Red Color Item Icon Item Icon
    Telescope Item Icon Item Icon
    Fist Item Icon Item Icon
    Training dummy Item Icon Item Icon
    Elastic spring Item Icon Item Icon
    Shoulder pad Item Icon Item Icon
    Helmet Item Icon Item Icon
    Studs Item Icon Item Icon
    Wet Grass Item Icon Item Icon
    Grease Item Icon Item Icon
    Footballs Item Icon Item Icon Item Icon

    Tactical items are obtained through the Provision House, and can be used as follows:
    • They are needed to successfully complete Event Adventures.
    • Most of them are usable against multiple different skills.
    • They are produced from combinations of types of 2 Tactical Resources (except for "Red Card", that requires Advanced Paper)

    Adventure Doors can be opened any time for free, once the respective date was reached (even if previous doors were not opened).
    Therefore, every player is able to play all the available adventures. In this year's event all adventures give 3x XP and double loot (excluding buildings/buffs)!
    Footballs have been added to the loot of Ventures and coop football loot has been boosted.

    5 non-combat Event Adventures inspired by football matches become available through the Fixture List: Practice Match, Round of 16, Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals, and Finals.

    The goal of the Special Event Adventures is to win football matches by countering all of the opponents' skills.
    You do this by applying the correct Tactical Items. Every opponent unit/skill can be defeated by either of two Tactical Items (your choice).

    Adventure Tournament Mode
    Bear in mind that your matches have to be completed in order. You will not be able to start an adventure if you haven’t completed the quest to beat the previous one first (*). To make things easier, if you cancel one of the adventures it will return to you by mail. Your progress will not be saved, but you won’t get stuck and you can use this method to scout your opponent’s skills.

    * The adventure "Practice match" does not have to be completed.

    Completing event related achievements is a means of earning footballs. The achievements do not contribute to the overall achievement score and the ones that have not been earned by the end of the event will be hidden from the achievement menu.
    The achievements deal with many aspects of the event:
    • Completing tournament adventures
    • Opening all doors of the Fixture List
    • Completing Summer quests
    • Earning footballs through explorer searches
    • Collecting event collectables
    • Producing tactical buffs
    • Trading tactical resources

    Winning all matches earns you a golden statue: the Champion's Trophy 2019!

    A new Achievement has been added: Training Marathon - Complete 25 Mini missions to obtain the Friar Tribute!

    Adventurous Explorer

    Her pace is achieved by taking a higher risk and not preparing as much as her colleagues. As result she has a vast experience which lets her find 50% more treasure and she also needs less provisions on adventure searches.

    Archeological Geologist

    A geologist with a fable for soccer and archeology. Not just looking for resources lets him always find something great on the side. Has a chance to find Treasure when successfully discovering a deposit. This can be a deposit refiller, a buff or even a book.

    A redecorated Version of the Wondrous Residence. Able to house an impressive amount of Settlers in such a small building footprint (2x2), the Wonderous Residence has to be one of the most efficient population buildings to date. Although it is relatively expensive to upgrade, the returns more than justify the means if you're looking to squeeze every last drop of space on your home-island:

    A must for all summer enthusiasts and soccer fans. Instead of tokens this variant will require footballs as upgrade costs.

    Facilities such as Snack Stands are always a good idea when hosting tournaments on your home island. Treat your guests with a delicious Stadium Snack, refreshing beverages such as Red Flying Settler, or - why not - Hot Lemon Tea. Every additional Snack Stand increases production speed by 100%. If you already had a snack stand from last years event, you can now obtain another one.

    Dear settlers,

    Please be aware that we made the following changes in the developers diary.

    • Shotfirer and Demolition Crew were added to the merchant (for footballs)
    • Valuable Intel was added to the list of Ventures
    • Expedition loot does not include event resources. The remark about it in the Deactivation Phase section was removed.
    • As the question came up in the feedback threads:
      How do the Premium Time- and Premium Friend Buff Experience Bonus work together?
      They work multiplicative with other bonuses.

    Happy Settling,
