Why would it be impossible for IA cities? I was in IA for quite a few events, and they were never impossible (maybe one or two events, but generally they were doable). I didn't always want to do them, but that's a different question.

Gather round Soccer fans!

Help Coach Miller lead her team to victory again!
The Soccer Cup is back for 2020! Starting from June 23rd to July 13th 2020, do your best to push your team through the tournament, and win some awesome prizes along the way!

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.

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. You can also find a small amount of Energy Drinks, from time to time, in regular incidents in your city.


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.


In the tournament arena you can challenge the teams of other players to climb the global rankings. You start off by choosing the difficulty of the match you play, either easy, medium or hard. After choosing the difficulty, your goal is to pick the best team to defeat your opponent. The percentage on your screen shows you your chance of winning the match. Choose the best player combination and levels to improve your chance to win. Make sure to keep in mind the strengths and weaknesses of the soccer players. Attacking players are effective against midfielders, midfielders are effective against defenders, and defenders are effective against attackers. Once you finish selecting your team you click on the button on the middle of the screen to see the results of the match.

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.

Winning a match will earn you Ranking Points and give you 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. The tournament Daily Special is different from the training Daily Special, meaning each day there are two different daily special prizes you can aim for!


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.



For the first time ever, we will have two upgradable main reward buildings, the Hippodrome Sphendone and the Hippodrome Carceres, making up a full Hippodrome!

Furthermore you can add an unlimited amount of Hippodrome Tracks which will add additional bonuses to both the Hippodrome Sphendone and the Hippodrome Carceres. There are three types of Hippodrome Tracks: The Leukoi Track which adds additional forge points, the Rousioi Track which adds additional defense for your attacking army and the Venetoi Track which adds additional goods.




Grand Prize: The Hippodrome is an upgradable residential building existing of 2 key parts, with 3 extra optional parts.
We also remodeled the Hall of Fame. But that’s not the only change. Both the Hall of Fame, and the Winners Plaza have gotten a second level! You can upgrade your level one buildings with their respective upgrade kits.

Winners Plaza - Lv. 1Winners Plaza - Lv. 2
Hall of Fame - Lv. 1Hall of Fame - Lv. 2
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.


As always, your feedback is very important for us, so don't forget to comment here!

Yours,
The Forge of Empires Team

Nope, just the hopelessly inept ones who have been camping (very poorly) in IA for 3-4+ months, but are now for example, Indie age on the c-map... oh, and the true geniuses who think BA camping is a smart move. :P

As we say in 40k, "Cheese/impossible, is the battle cry of the inept and the unprepared."
