Easy, Normal and Advanced Modes
New for 2020, there are now three Modes for the Seasonal Event — Easy (new), Normal, and Advanced. You can play any or all three, and must complete each Stage sequentially 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 Easy or Normal Modes won’t give you access to the corresponding Stages in Advanced. You need to beat each Stage in each mode to progress. And unlike Normal/Hard Modes in Valhalla, the Modes can be played entirely separately — you could start with Advanced, for instance, without playing Easy and Normal.
Like previous versions of Springvale, there are 20 Stages per Difficulty Mode.
With the addition of Easy, that now means there are a total of 60 Stages across the three Difficulty Modes.
No Hero Restrictions
Unlike Challenge Events, there are no restrictions on Hero or Troop rarity in the Easy, 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 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.

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.
During each of the Seasonal Events, your Base is updated in the spirit of the season. For Sand Empire, this includes palm trees and Beach Balls scattered around your Base.
Like with the pumpkins during Return to Morlovia and snowmen during Santa’s Challenge, the Beach balls will bounce when tapped.
