Hold your (sea)horses! This year your city is hosting the Elvarian Games! In this underwater sports spectacular, seahorses will race through the hoops to be the first to reach the endpoints. While you watch the games, you'll learn more from our mega fan Rufus, a dwarf that is completely obsessed with the Elvarian Games and sits by you in the stands explaining and participating in the events around.
Dear Humans and Elves,
During this year's summer event, you'll learn everything there is to know about the Elvarian Games!
Starting Thursday, July 22 through Thursday, August 12th, you are the host to this year's Elvarian Games! By following the questline and fulfilling tasks for Rufus, you'll get him to explain everything about the games to you, and he'll award you with Seahorse Food so you can feed your seahorses and get them strong enough to swim to the underwater hoops. Of course, you can also earn Seahorse Food by reaching quest milestones, visiting your city on a daily basis, and occasionally you'll find some Food that was lost around your city.
As the seahorses swim through the hoops, they will find many treasures, which of course they will bring back to you. Each time a seahorse reaches the end stage, they will reward you with one of many special Grand Prizes. By progressing through the event, you will be able to build and upgrade the special Triumph of the Tides evolution building:
The Triumph of the Tides will give you population and culture and will be the first-ever evolution building in which you can switch the additional production output (between Supplies, Heavy Melee units, Sentient Goods, or Seeds depending on your chapter).
This event will use the same mechanics as last month's Sorcerers' Homecoming event. It will also feature the Leagues system again!
The questline consists of a story section and additional episodic quests, which start as soon as the story is completed. This means that you will be able to finish the first series of quests right away, while later quests have new additions released on a daily basis, allowing you to continue to play 1 additional event quest on each new event day. Fulfilling the event quests will also grant you Milestone Rewards at certain points along the way.
We hope you'll enjoy hosting the games this year and are of course looking forward to reading your feedback in our discussion thread!
Enjoy the games!
Your Elvenar Team

Disclaimer: Please keep in mind that there can always be differences in event layouts, balancing, and prizes between Beta and Live release. App version 1.134 is required for the event to function properly. This app version is released separately from the event. In addition to that, please note that the final day of the event spans more than 24 hours, in order to not have the event end during the night (CET). That means the Daily Exclusive on August 11th is the final Daily Exclusive reward that is also available for some more hours in the morning (CET) of August 12th. No new event quest is added to the questline on August 12th, the final Quest Milestone can be unlocked on August 11th.
