Once again in the event, you can win two Daily Specials, one from the Training Field and one from the Tournament.
You need to complete Quests to get Energy Drinks to Train your Players, collect Player Cards to give you more Players to improve your Team and gain tickets to enter the Tournament. It might sound complicated at first, but it's so easy! Let's see how it works.
How Can I Participate in the Soccer Event?
The Soccer Cup is back! This year, we follow the road to the championship for the men's team! Complete event quests to win Energy Drinks and a bonus reward of Tournament Tickets and Player cards! You can also get some free Energy Drinks for your Daily Login and you can find some in the Incidents around your city!
As you can see you can either train your team (on the left side of the event window) or go straight to the Tournament Arena (on the right side of the event window). As you can see the event window is split in two halves and it contains six key elements, starting from left:
- On the top left corner is your Team. It shows you all the Players that you currently have available and their current Level.
- Pressing the Training button, it will take you to the Training Window and below it is the number of the available Energy Drinks
- Right under the Energy Drinks you will find the Training Daily Special
Moving to the right half of the Event Window:
- At the top you will see the Top Three Players in your Worlds Tournament and your position in it
- By pressing the Tournament button you will be directed to the Tournament Arena and below this button the number of tickets you currently have
- and finally under your tickets you will find the Tournament Daily Special
Training Event Window
In the training arena, you will decide how to pass the ball from one player to another, to eventually reach the goal of the opposing team. Every pass will offer you a different selection of rewards including a chance to get the Daily Special or player cards. and will advance one step closer to the coveted goal reward. Click on the question mark above every player to see what you can win.
It takes more energy to pass the ball to players further down the field. It's your choice how quickly you want to advance to the Goal! Passing the ball is hard work! Your players will need to replenish their energy, resulting in each pass you will spend some of your Energy Drinks. Complete quests in order to get more.
Here you can also access your Team on the left corner, in the middle of the window you'll find the Daily Special and on the right corner there is the number of the available energy drinks. You can buy some more with Diamonds by pressing the button. On the right side of the Training Window you can see the current Goal Reward and following two.
Player Cards will either unlock a new player or make one of your current players stronger. By clicking on Team you can view the players you have collected. Adding a new player to your team means you will also be able to pass the ball to this player in the training arena. You can click on a player card to see which rewards you can get by passing the ball to this player. The higher level your player is, the higher your chance is to get double the rewards. You can see the double reward chance on the player cards of each player.
Buy more Player Cards by pressing the button next to cards icon. You can buy 10, 50 or 200 random Cards with Diamonds
Besides that, we changed the way ranking points are calculated within this year's Soccer Cup event. The higher your Team Power, the more Ranking Points you will be awarded from winning your Tournament Matches. Speaking of which, "Tournament" is the place where you can challenge the teams of other players to climb up in the global ranking. Upon hitting "Play Match", you start off by choosing the difficulty of the match you wanna play, either easy, medium, or hard. Please, keep in mind that winning against more difficult opponents will grant you greater rewards, and additionally you also get more ranking points depending on the difficulty of your opponent.
After choosing the difficulty, your goal is to pick the best team to defeat your opponent. The percentage on your screen shows your chances of winning (green) or losing (red) the match. Choose the best players combination to improve your chances to win, and make sure to keep in mind the strengths and weaknesses they have:
Attacking players are more effective against midfielders
50px Midfielders are more effective against defenders
Defenders are more effective against attackers
Once you finish selecting your team, click on the button in the middle of the screen to use a tournament ticket and see the results of the match. These tickets will replenish over time, but you can earn more of them by completing quests, finding them in regular incidents in your city or purchasing them with diamonds.
Winning a match will earn you Ranking Points and a reward chest. The reward chest you win depends on the difficulty you choose. Each reward chest has a chance to win the Tournament Daily Special, which is different from the Training Daily Special, meaning that on each day there are two different daily special prizes you can aim for!
Chose your opponent
Press Play Match to chose your opponent. Every time you play a tournament match you will use up one tournament ticket which will replenish over time. You can earn more tournament tickets by completing quests, or by finding them in regular incidents in your city.
At the top of the window you can see the number of the players you have in your Team and your current ranking.
There will be three random opponents from the world to chose from. Next to each one there is a different chest, Easy Medium Hard, which means that each one has different prizes for you. The hardest the Chest, the better the rewards!
The Points you get are based the Strength of opponent you face.
Tournament Pre-Match Window
Once you've chosen your Opponent you will be directed to the Pre-Match Window, where you can see the opponent's team and you will also be able to select your players to play against them, by pressing the Change Team Setup icon next to your team.
Each position provides a bonus over another. Use this in combination with your team power to gain the edge over your opponent!
Each Player in your team has a Power Level. The collective Power of all five players in your team makes up your Team Power.
Every time you win a tournament match you earn Ranking Points which will determine your global ranking and will move you up the League Table. With higher ranking comes better rewards! At the end of the event, you will receive additional special rewards based on your league. You can view which league you are in by clicking on the league trophy in the tournament arena. In addition, the top 10 highest ranked players on the global ranking will get extra rewards based on their rank, including an unique avatar.
Be aware, other players may want to also get into the higher ranks, but only a certain amount of players can stay there. Make sure that you always gain enough Ranking Points in order to not fall in ranks.
We know you've been waiting for this, so let's talk about this event's building reward! The new main reward is the "Athlon Abbey", an imposing 5x4 upgradable building with 10 levels! This building provides you with Happiness, Population and Coins on base level. Upon leveling it up, it will also deliver Supplies, Medals, Forge Points, Goods, as well as Defense and Attack boosts for your defending armies!
You will need Athlon Abbey Upgrade Kit to Upgrade your Athlon Abbey and You can find them as Goal Rewards, but never as Daily Specials.
Lastly, you'll get to show off your progress to your friends and neighbors, by winning one of three Soccer themed portraits. Two can be won by completing the questline, and the last one can be earned as unique prizes for the Gold League.
Last but not least, the Soccer Cup 2021 will be the first event to have its own dedicated spot in the Event Hub's pier.
