Special Game Play: Pumpkin Bombs
Normal and Advanced Modes
This screenshot is from 2018, and will be replaced after Return to Morlovia 2019 launches
There are two modes for Seasonal Events, Normal and Advanced. You can play either or both, and must complete each stage in that mode to advance.
The modes are separated, a bit like tiers in Challenge Events. Unlike Normal/Hard modes in Atlantis, advancing in the Normal mode won’t give you access to the corresponding Stages in Advanced. You need to beat each stage in each mode to progress.
No Hero Restrictions
Unlike Challenge Events, there are no restrictions on hero or troop rarity in the Normal and Advanced modes. There are also no restrictions on hero Classes, unlike Class Trials.
You’re free to use any heroes you’d like!
No Elemental Barrier/Color Reflection
Also unlike Challenge Events, Seasonal Events have no enemies or bosses with Elemental Barriers that reflect damage and status effects. So you can use any of your heroes as you see fit!
No Replaying Completed Stages
Unlike Challenge Events, Seasonal Events don’t allow replaying a completed Stage — much like how Quests work.
Once you beat each Stage, it’s locked, and once you beat the entirety of the Seasonal Event, you can’t play any more.
If you fail at a Stage, you can retry as many times as you’d like, up until the Event ends.
No Event Heroes as Rewards
Also unlike Challenge Events, Seasonal Events have no possibility of receiving event heroes as rewards.
There are avatars available in the loot for completing some Stages, which sometimes are confused by players as being the actual heroes when looking at the rewards list. Seasonal Heroes can only be acquired by Summoning, and the odds for them are extremely low.
Please see the linked threads below for each Seasonal Event hero for more information on them and the low Summoning odds.
During Seasonal Events, there is a special calendar with a different offer each day, each available for 24 hours.
The offers are not visible until the start of each day, and show for all players at the same time (for Springvale and Sand Empire, they rotated at 00:00 GMT).
Once closed, the Offers Calendar can be accessed by tapping a special icon on the Stronghold screen.
Two of the calendar days also offer free items — typically these are crafting ingredients, and sometimes flasks or tokens.
Typically the offers on Seasonal Event Calendars are varied in price range, and often offer some of the best deals on purchasing particular individual ascension materials and gems. Not all items will be offered, and the quantity available for each item is typically restricted to just 1.

Epic Hero Tokens Can Be Used for Seasonal Summoning
The Seasonal Summons replaces the regular Epic Hero Summons.
Because of that, unlike Challenge Event Summons, the Summoning Portal for Seasonal Events allows using saved up Epic Hero Tokens that can otherwise normally only be used for Epic Hero Summons.
That makes Seasonal Events the only place you can currently use Epic Hero Tokens for a chance at non-Season 1 heroes.
Many people regard the Christmas heroes as superior to the Halloween heroes, and therefore prefer to save their Epic Hero Tokens for December. For more discussion of this, please see: What is the best Seasonal Summons?
You’ll also have the same chance at the HOTM as usual when using Epic Hero Tokens.
Because Return to Morlovia 2019 is expected to run from the end of October until the beginning of November, you should have an opportunity to Summon while either HOTM is available.
For information on the October and November HOTM, please see:
November HOTM: 🧪 Early Information on the November 2019 HOTM (Neith)
During each of the Seasonal Events, your Base is updated in the spirit of the season.
For Return to Morlovia, this includes spooky trees and jack-o’-lanterns scattered around your base, as well as a thick misty fog, and zombie villagers.
Like with the coconuts during Sand Empire and snowmen during Santa’s Challenge, the pumpkins will bounce when tapped.
What’s your favorite part of Return to Morlovia?

- The Offer Calendar — I like more opportunities to purchase items and gems
- The Ascension Materials – I like getting the Trap Tools and/or Royal Tabard
