Summer Event 2021
How does the Summer Event work?
As soon as you arrive, you will be met by the local governor of Forge Island. He will give you access to the wheel of fortune. Not only that, but he will give you quests to earn Doubloons, required to give the wheel a spin!
He will not be your only companion, as Jane will once again meet your acquaintance. She is committed to finding treasure and certainly, she has the capacity to do so. She will also help you earn Doubloons, and edge closer to the treasure you have been seeking!
There are awesome prizes to be won, and if you didn't have a chance to participate in our previous events, now you have an opportunity to compete with your neighbors to claim some of those old event items, as well as brand new Summer items. To board the Wheel of Fortune, click the bar in the top left corner of your screen:
Upon opening the event window, you will see the wheel, as well as the buttons to "spin" or "refresh & spin". Click "spin" to try your hand at the prizes currently on the wheel, or "refresh & spin" to clear the wheel for a new set of prizes! Don't worry, if you refresh the wheel, you still earn a prize after the new wheel is revealed. Remember that your neighborhood shares the wheel - when you refresh it, it's refreshed for everyone (an additional refresh will take place during a neighborhood merge). This also means when you grab a prize, it is gone for everyone! The most recent wins are displayed at the bottom of the window, so that you can keep an eye on who's winning which prize.
In order to spin the wheel, you first need to earn Doubloons which can be earned by completing Summer quests or finding them in regular incidents around, or in the outskirts of your city as well as a daily log-in bonus. You can also use Diamonds if you just can't resist waiting for the next spin! One spin costs one Doubloon, and results in one prize. Alternatively, you can "refresh and spin" to call up a whole new set of prizes for your neighborhood. No matter what you choose, you will always win a prize!
The prizes displayed in the wheel are available for every player in your neighborhood to claim. The prizes are random but, don't worry, every wheel has something special that can be won.
There are different rewards within the Wheel of Fortune. Common rewards (green) can be obtained up to four times, and uncommon (silver) can be won twice (the amount remaining is indicated by the bars in the circle surrounding it). Once the bars are depleted, that prize can no longer be won, and to find it again, you may need to refresh the wheel.
With the last type of prizes, they are the rare prizes, which are surrounded by a golden circle, and can only be won once! Among these special prizes are the event buildings from the previous events, including the Governor's Villa, and the Crow's Nest!
Of course, if you run out of all prizes, then the Wheel of Fortune will automatically refresh!
In order to snag yourself the grand prize, you must set sail on a fantastic voyage! But how do you navigate the perilous seas, you ask? After every spin of the wheel, you will receive a compass! Use this compass to make your way across the map. Using a compass will randomly move your ship 1-3 spots on the map. Once you reach the edge of the map, X marks the spot, and you will be presented with the grand prize reward! The map will then be reset and you will be able to start once more on an epic new voyage.
Summer Event Questline
To spin the wheel you need Doubloons, which both the Governor, as well as the local pirate Jane will be happy to provide you with... in exchange for completing tasks, of course.
You can go through the first 34 quests immediately. Once you've completed them, you will receive one additional quest per day, for the remainder of the event (21 daily quests). You will probably have a few of them stacked when you get to them, as they start stacking up on day one. Each completed quest contributes to the counter at the bottom of the quest window, and you will unlock new prizes at 5, 20, 34, 45 & 55 quests!
Summer Event Rewards
In addition to some older event items, we of course also have a brand new reward: The Pirate's Hideout (an upgradable building with 9 levels) as well as some special new summer avatars.
This year's main prize is the "Pirate's Hideout", an upgradable 5x6 building with 9 levels! At level 1, it will have base happiness, population, and coins boost.
From level 2, you will receive medals and supplies, and at level 3, a chance to also collect Goods! At level 4, there is a chance to receive one of the following - Medals, Supplies, Goods, or Forge Points!
Finally, from level 7 onwards, you will also receive an attacking bonus for your attacking armies. Each one of these boosts will increase in value, as you level-up!
|A Level 1 Pirate's Hideout can be found as one of the first rewards of the questline and can then be upgraded using Pirate's Hideout Upgrade Kit which can be obtained in the Summer 2021 Event quest line and as part of the Grand Prize.|

That is not all! There are also chain decorations that you can win during the Event, which you can add to the pirate's hideout. When chained to your Pirate's Hideout, they will provide a boost in happiness, as well as generous provision of goods, forge points, or an 8% defensive boost for your attacking armies (depending on what you decide). Therefore, they are certainly something you should consider chaining to the building!
