    Event Basics



    Presents
    Presents represent the event resource. They can be used to acquire special items from the event shop.
    Your presents are listed in the "Event" tab of your storehouses.
    There are many opportunities to get event resources:
    • Rewards for Christmas Scenarios (Buff Adventures)
    • Two combat based Christmas Adventures (chance to get presents as additional reward)
    • Special Christmas Daily Quests and Event Quest chain rewards
    • Explorer treasure searches (chance to get presents on top of normal loot)
    • Conversion of the Christmas collectibles in the Mayor's House
    • Event Calendar
    • Trade with players
    • Present packages in the Shop





    Bells, Candy canes and Gingerbread. Did you miss them? These Christmas collectibles will spawn on your island until the removal phase of the event. Nine collectibles will spawn with every spawn cycle, randomly chosen between bells, candy canes and gingerbread. All of them reward exactly 2 resources when clicked. Please be aware that for the full number of collectibles to spawn, the whole (main) island has to be claimed.

    The Christmas collectible items can be converted into Presents in your Mayor's house until the removal phase of the event. Trading is possible until the removal phase of the event as well.





    What makes Christmas Event so special? Why... the Event Calendar, of course! Isn't it nice to receive a gift each day, just by clicking on a door? To open the Event Calendar interface, simply access the Shooting Star icon next to your avatar.

    4 DIFFERENT TYPES OF DOORS
    You can open a door each day. In total, there are 21 of them.
    The calendar will display the time left to open the current day's door.



    Type: Regular door
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for gems afterwards
    Requirement: It doesn't matter if previous doors are still closed or not



    Type: Buff Adventure door
    Description: Can be opened anytime for free, once the respective date was reached
    Requirement: It doesn't matter if previous doors are still closed or not



    Type: Special bonus door
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for gems afterwards
    Requirement: All previous doors need to be open



    Type: Celebration day door
    Description: Can be opened on the specific date displayed or for gems afterwards
    Requirement: All previous doors need to be open
    Rewards: Very special rewards




    SPECIAL CALENDAR REWARDS

    While the last special door will remain a mystery until you get to open it, you can peek through the keyhole of a few select doors and see what precious presents await on the other side!

    Introduced for the first time in December 2015, the ginger biscuit residence that everyone loves (to eat) is already a regular appearance within the Christmas calendar: you can get not one, but two Gingerbread Houses by opening a particular Calendar door.

    But that's not all: the Arctic Iron Mine is also part of the Calendar - get that cold icy look for your island, which happens to be a great source of iron ore as well! As the saying goes, have nothing on your island that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful; fortunately, the Arctic Iron Mine is both.



    2 x Gingerbread House
    • Description: Residence for 40 settlers.
    • Upgrades: Can be upgraded to level 6 (see picture). Each upgrade increases the population space by 15 up to a total of 115.
    • Recurring: Tearing it down will return it to your Star Menu.

    The Arctic Iron Mine
    • Description: The Arctic Iron Mine produces Iron Ore at the same rate as a Level 5 Iron Mine.
    • Upgrades: Cannot be upgraded
    • Recurring: Depletes when the deposit is empty, tearing it down destroys it.




    This year's Merchant brings along a new specialist to our islands: Mary Christmas, Santa's fierce wife! Oh no, don't let that old looking granny fool you; Mary is offering special "treats" to unwelcome guests - her special trait, Have a treat, increases the XP gained from enemy units by 100%.



    Name: Mary Christmas (Limit: 1)
    Description: Santa's wife as a general
    Her special trait increases the XP gained from enemy units defeated by her army by 100%.

    Adventures



    Presents: While the buff adventures will provide you with Presents during the event until deactivation, the two Combat Christmas Specific Adventures will only have a chance of providing you with Presents.
    If you play them after the final event deactivation (see deactivation steps) they won't provide Presents anymore.

    2 CHRISTMAS ADVENTURES (COMBAT)
    Name: Save the Christmas feast
    Minimum requirement: Level 26
    Description: The Croaker has stolen all the presents. Defeat the Croaker and retrieve the missing presents.
    Price: 95 Gems

    Name: The stolen Sleigh
    Minimum requirement: Level 36
    Description: The Christmas Feast is in danger. The Croaker has stolen Santa’s sleigh. It is up to you to get it back.
    Price: 95 Gems



    It's now custom for Christmas buff adventures to be hidden behind certain Event Calendar doors. Before you redeem them, make sure you're in good holiday spirits; you'll be helping Santa out by delivering gifts to houses on multiple islands!
    The buff adventures are balanced for the following level groups which are checked once you open a door: 16-25, 26-35, 36+. There are 6 special adventure doors in the calendar and you needn't use a General, for this Christmas buff adventures require certain types of buffs instead of troops.

    Achievements



    The Christmas Achievements are here once more to offer you an extra source of presents. You can unlock them during this event only.
    Presents are rewarded for successfully completing achievements; the amount depends on the achievement's difficulty.



    The Achievements deal with many aspects of the event:
    • Finding presents during Explorer searches
    • Succeeding in Christmas quests
    • Crafting in your Mayor's house
    • Helping friends with buffs
    • Opening Calendar doors

    WHAT HAPPENS AT THE START OF THE REMOVAL PHASE?
    (2nd of January 10:00 CET)
    The core mechanisms of the Event are turned off at the start of the removal phase.
    • Info Widget/Countdown
      The event countdown gets replaced by a new countdown.
      The new one indicates the remaining time of the removal phase until the event gets completely deactivated.
    • Christmas adventures
      Event scenarios from the calendar are canceled and cannot be started.
      Event scenario buffs cannot be produced anymore and can be reimbursed on the Mayor house.
      You can still play the two shop Christmas adventures.
      If you finish an adventure before the event gets completely deactivated,
      special event related items like Presents are still rewarded.
    • Quests & Achievements
      The event Quest chains and Achievements will be deactivated.
      New Christmas event-related tasks will no longer be triggered.
      Only completed Christmas event achievements remain visible.
    • Collectibles
      All event related collectibles stop spawning.
      Christmas collectibles spawned before the start of the removal phase can be collected.
      The respective resources (Bells, Candy and Gingerbread) will be hidden from the storage and trade
      The resources get converted to gold coins later (see event resource conversion).
      The related Mayor house collection (Basket of Presents) will also be removed
    • Treasure Search (Explorers)
      All treasure searches started before the start of the removal phase and returning before the deactivation have the chance to reward event currency. All treasure searches started during or after the start of the removal phase will not reward event currency anymore.
    • Misc
      The option to convert Marble and Presents to Granite inside the Mayor's house is no longer available.
      The event shop remains active and Presents can be used to get special items until complete event deactivation.
      The event calendar will no longer be accessible.
      Event-related loading screen, Reindeer, UI skins, the giant Christmas tree and music will be removed/set to default.







    WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE DEACTIVATION?
    (9th of January, 10:00 CET)
    • Trade
      New trade offers containing event currency can't be set up anymore.
      Active trade offers containing event currency are set to invisible.
    • Shop/Event currency
      The Event shop category is not available anymore.
      Event currency is not visible in the Mayor's house anymore and will be converted into Coins later.
    • Christmas Adventures & event buffs
      Event currency rewards from adventures are deactivated.
      • This applies to Christmas adventures from the shop. During the event, these adventures drop either buffs or Presents (on top of other loot). With complete deactivation, the chance to get Presents is removed from loot tables. As a result, buffs will always be chosen.
      • Christmas buff adventures from the Event Calendar are changed, too. They reward gold coins instead of Presents. With event resource conversion, the Christmas buff adventures will be deleted, because you cannot finish them anymore.
      • Buffs needed for Christmas buff adventures can no longer be produced.
        Remaining buffs can be applied to your Mayor's house for a full refund of production resources.




    EVENT RESOURCE CONVERSION
    (planned for one of the future game updates: January or February)

    As usual, all event-related resources will be converted into gold coins.
    No event resources are supposed to remain in the game.

    A script will run during the game update downtime to replace all event resources (especially Presents) with gold coins.
    The conversion applies to all items of that type, such as
    • items in your warehouses and in your Star Menu
    • items included in public trades and friend trades
    • items attached to in-game mails like loot from adventures or explorer searches


    Conversion rates: The final amount will be rounded up.
    1 Present = 0.4 gold coins
    1 event collectible = 0.04 gold coins


    There is no action needed from your side, you will receive an in-game message with the corresponding amount of gold coins.
    The Christmas Scenarios from the calendar will be deleted during the conversion.
