Get ingredients from Quests, Daily Challenges and Incidents. Use them for baking, fill the whole table and get awesome rewards!
On your marks. Get set. Bake! Welcome back to the great Fall Bake Off! This year, the Fall Bake Off makes its return to your city in style! Much like last year's event, you take part in a baking contest. Collect all the ingredients needed and bake as many delectable recipes as possible! This year, we have some awesome prizes to win, as well as a chance to win some prizes from previous years!
This year, our Game Designer, Micha, and our QA Engineer, Olli, compete against one another in the bake off. Check out who wins the title of Star Baker, as well as more details on the Fall Event, in the video below:
The event starts on September 10th, so be sure to pre-heat your ovens! .
Just like last year, the contest is all about baking! In order to bake, you're going to need Ingredients! Ingredients can be found by completing quests in the Fall Event questline. You will have 54 rush quests available to you immediately, and one quest for every day of the event, giving a total of 75 quests. Like last year, there will be 2 rush questlines which run parallel to one another. You can also earn ingredients by completing Daily Challenges, and by collecting Incidents around your city. You'll also get free Ingredients from special daily quests, so be sure to log in every day to collect them!
Once you've collected some ingredients, it's time to prepare your Signature Bake! Open the event window, and choose one of the available recipes using a combination of the 5 available ingredients. Each recipe will produce a prize, and a chance to win the Daily Special! You will also receive stars for each successful bake, which pushes you closer to the Grand Prize! Once you've filled the table with delicious treats, you'll be rewarded with the Grand Prize. You will receive 1, 2 or 3 stars, depending on how complex your baking is!
But that's not all! Every time you earn stars, you will also move further up the 'League Table'. The players with the most progress will be rewarded with extra special prizes!
But 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 earn yourself plenty of Stars in order to not fall in ranks.
As with all contests, there is a Grand Prize to be won! This year, you'll have the chance to snag a brand new residential building, The September Cottage. This quaint thatched cottage is an upgradable building, with six levels. At level 2, the cottage will produce Forge Points and Supplies when motivated. At level 7, the cottage provides 4 Forge Points when motivated, and you can pick from three different family homes, The Pond Family, The Flowerly Family and the Appleton Family!
The Appleton Cottage
The Appleton Cottage provides a permanent Attack and Defense boost to your city.
The Flowerly Cottage
The Flowerly Cottage provides an additional 2 Forge Points (total 6) when motivated.
The Ponds Cottage
The Ponds Cottage provides you with 15 Goods when motivated.
That's not all, of course! You also have a chance to win the Cider Mill from previous year's events, and we've also introduced a new level to the Cider Mill, The Flourishing Cider Mill:
Last but not least, you can also earn yourself some beautiful new portraits in this year's event, too. 2 can be earned by completing the questline, with one being an exclusive reward only available as a reward for earning Gold in the League.
We hope you enjoy our new event! It will conclude on the 30th September.
