World Cup 2014 - Dev Diary

It took Blue Byte a while - the event is over a week running - but finally:

[Dev Diary] The Settlers Football World Championship

Developer's Diary: More information about the event - The Settlers Football World Championship

Dear Settlers,

This developer's diary entry is related to the new event: The Settlers Football World Championship. More details can be found below.

The event resource is called Footballs. They can be traded and are listed in the storehouse (event tab) as usual.
In case you still have Footballs from the former event, you can also use these.

How to get Footballs (event resource)?
  • Rewards for completing event quests
  • Rewards for completing adventures
  • Loot collected by explorers during treasure searches
  • Collectible Items
  • Event Calendar
  • Trading with other players
  • In-game Shop
  • Stefan’s Sports Box

With the start of the event, a special Event Calendar has been added to the game.
It allows all players (minimum level: 16) to receive many useful gifts, including buildings!

The calendar interface features 3 different types of windows:

  1. Regular Window (1) that can be opened on a certain day (or afterwards with Gems).
  2. Special Window (2) that can be opened on a certain day (or afterwards with Gems), only if all previous windows have been opened.

    Important: Each player needs to choose the reward from the list on the right (the choice cannot be changed afterwards).

    The picture above presents two situations:
    Rewards selected (left) and rewards not yet selected (right).
  3. Adventure Window (3) that can be opened on a certain day (or afterwards without Gems).

Opening the Event Calendar interface is easy: Just click on the icon of the Football that is located next to your avatar:

The football icon is shown only to players that have at least level 16.

There are many event collectibles in the game. They can be used to produce special buffs (counter abilities)
that are needed for completing new event adventures. The production of counter abilities is available in the Provision house.

There is a chance to acquire event-related items through:

  • Collectible Items
    Shoe, Elastic Spring, Telescope, Banana peel, Fist, Corner, Footballs, Red color
  • Treasure searches (explorer)
    Shoulder pad, Helmet, Twister, Studs, Wet grass, Grease, Footballs
  • Adventures
    Shoe, Banana peel, Shoulder pad, Studs, Helmet, Twister, Red color, Telescope,
    Wet grass, Fist, Grease, Corner, Elastic spring, Footballs
  • Daily quests (event)
    Shoe, Banana peel, Shoulder pad, Studs, Helmet, Twister, Red color, Telescope,
    Wet grass, Fist, Grease, Corner, Elastic spring, Footballs
  • Stefan’s Sports Box
    Shoe, Banana peel, Shoulder pad, Studs, Helmet, Twister, Red color, Telescope,
    Wet grass, Fist, Grease, Corner, Elastic spring, Footballs

The 7 new, non-combat event adventures are available through the Event Calendar.

Calendar doors that provide these special adventures can be opened on (or after) a certain day, even if previous doors were not opened.
Therefore, every player is able to play all adventures.

Please note that some enemy camps on the event adventures require more than one counter ability to defeat them. Examples:
To defeat the camp shown in the picture, it is needed to use two counter abilities.

During the event it is possible to acquire many objects, including decorative flags and other buildings.

The event brings a new resource to the game: Grout. This special resource allows you to upgrade certain buildings from level 5 to 6!
It is possible to upgrade three following buildings up to level 6: Farm, Mason and Marble mason.

A new Lucky explorer that is not only 3 times as fast as his colleagues from the Tavern, but also has a special ability.
This special ability grants you a chance to acquire a buff not only during treasure searches, but also during adventure searches!

Please feel free to leave your feedback here.

Happy settling!
