Do you receive a message via in-game mailbox like this? What is it?
Now, this guide(written by AlmightySor)will help you understand the Solo event and Hell event, and it's targeted for all those newbies who don't understand how this events work, It will also explain how to calculate and time your Research,building and troop training,so that you can get the best possible rewards.
The 2 Events : Solo and Hell.
About monster hunting for Hell event, let see a video below:
And then let see the information that regards both events equally. Both events are said to be server-wide,everyone on the server,all of the kingdoms see the same event as you are.
How do the events work ?
Both events are built on the same concept, there is a 3 phased reward system, each phase requires a Certain amount of points (cumulative to the higher phase rewards).
An example of how it looks :
Every phase gives it's own rewards.
One very important thing to mention! The rewards depend on the amount of points required for each phase, the higher the requirement, the better the rewards will be. Each phase completed grants you it's reward.
The first phase usually gives resources and occasional speed-ups. It usually doesn't require much points as you can see above, but the rewards are nothing to brag about.
Second phase is where rewards start becoming interesting. In addition to more resources and better speed-ups, they tend to include one of the following or more :
Item Loot Box
Material Loot Box
Third Phase is where it starts to get really interesting,we will elaborate on this level later in this guide because it's usually different for both events.
If you click on either of this events, On the left
side under "Source" you will see one or more of the following tabs :
"Research" "Troop training" "Building".
What are POINTS ?
For Research and Building,
Points = Might for a finished operation.
So what gives the most points ?
The answer is research,the better the research the more might (turned into points for the purpose of events). But better research means more time required to finish it. For example,the research we showed you above, it's original time
before subtracting bonuses is : about 4 and a half days. That is why for
newbies it's extremely important to max research skills ASAP (followed
by construction) in your hero talent tree.
Now because research gives the most points and
directly affects you (better troops, monster hunting, economy and etc)
you will want to give priority to spending most of your speed-ups on
speeding up the research when needed of course.
Next in Line is troops, the amount of points per 1 troop is as followed:
Tier 1 troops = 1 point each.
Tier 2 troops = 2 points each.
Tier 3 troops = 5 points each.
Tier 4 troops = 15 points each.
So for example if you gonna train 300 Tier 2 Cavalry,you will be awarded 600 points in an event that needs troop training.You shouldn't be spending speed-ups on troop training at the early stages of the game, for the purpose of rewards or overall it better be spent on research. But if it will give you better rewards as I will explain soon, than do it. At lvl 17 Castle, when you can train 2000+ tier 3 troops,that is where speed-ups can be spent on troop training, again for the purpose of rewards,
Next in line which gives the least amount of points for the time it takes, at least at early stages of the game :
For example a lvl 11 quarry takes 9+ hours (original time) but gives only 307 points (might).
You shouldn't be spending speedups on construction for the purpose of event rewards, if you need that barracks now and not in 3 hours that
is obviously your choice to make and go ahead and do it, just don't do
it for event rewards because it usually isn't worth it.
Both events have a ranking system, divided in castle levels,meaning every castle level has it's own rank. It is divided as following :
This top 100 works as the following :
A player receives a rank only if he finished all 3 phases of an event, and is in the top 100 points received for his castle level in that event.So if to complete phase 3 for solo you needed 12,000
for example and you went past that, you have a chance of being top 100,
obviously the more you go past that 12,000 the better your chances of
being in this top 100.
You'll know if you got top 100 at the end of an event cycle.You will get a message with your prices and what rank you achieved.
The better the rank group the better the prices, but even places 51-100 get a decent price.It gets harder and harder though to be in the top 100, as you progress with castle levels.
The differences between the events
Solo event is a 3 hour periodic event. It starts at 13:00 for example (different time zones
so cycle is different for every country) and ends at 15:55, those extra 5
minutes till 16:00 will show in orange and is time to prepare for the
next cycle, it will show you the next cycle condition.
The preparation time looks like this :
Solo event usually has 2 or all 3 of the tabs (research, troop training and building).But it can have only one as well.Phase 1 and 2 awards, but
level 3 is where there are good awards, usually contain even better
speedups, boosts and loot boxes.
Solo event phase 3 points needed isn't high usually,it's about 7000 to 30000 usually. Obviously the more points needed the better the price.When it gets into 20k + which is hard to get, the prices get real interesting offering gems or many loot boxes. Again, it's quite random and you might get a demanding and rewarding event, or relatively easy.
Hell event :
The event starts every round hour and lasts for 55 minutes. The remaining 5 minutes are like in solo event, preparation to the next cycle. This event usually asks for one or two of the point types. But it can be 3 at times, though phases are demanding. Phases 1 and 2 are about the same as Solo event as described earlier.But the tougher the requirements, the more points needed per phase.
Hell event is less consistent than solo as far as requirements go. Phase 3 is something else entirely mostly.
Phase 3 rewards can request more than 100k points at
times with insane prices like rare loot boxes, many gems and even
special reward hero tokens, obviously we regular joes at early levels
can't get there.But when the phase 3 is above 17k points needed, the prices usually contain gems.
Phase 3 rewards usually contain :
3+ hour speed-ups
100-200 Holy Stars
4-9 blue/purple material chests
uncommon item chests
Special event (like gryphon) material chest
And occasional Watcher Token (Special reward hero) or 2
Hope you guys enjoyed, so some tips to conclude long guide.
1. Always have spare gems .
2. If you are researching something that gives 10k+ points, even if u use them on the research, keep 2-3 hours to give you the chance to find a good opportunity to time your events.
3. try to train an amount of troops to be ready with your research.
4. Time your high points to when you are available to play the game, shame a day worth research will go to waste.
5. Make it that most of your research wait time will be at night when you are a sleep.
So hope you guys enjoyed my guide, you are welcome to reply and add tips or find any faults in this guide. Good luck!
