Text Explanation

From #beta-beat:

:sweat_smile: 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.

:triangular_flag_on_post: Stages

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_entry_sign: 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!

:repeat: 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.

:star2: 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.

You’ll also have the same chance at the HOTM as usual when using Epic Hero Tokens. As the event crosses both June & July you will have the chance at both the June Hotm Raffaelle & Noor

:partying_face: Festive Stronghold

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.

:left_speech_bubble: Share Your Teams & Results, and Ask Questions!

  • Many players will switch up their heroes used for each Stage, based on the monster/boss colors — are there heroes you’re using consistently for Sand Empire?
  • Are there any Stages you’re having a hard time with, and would like advice on beating?
  • Are you using particular items to beat Sand Empire stages?
  • How do you find playing with the new Lamps & "X"s?
  • Do you have insights on strategy to share, or questions?
  • Is there anything about Sand Empire that you’re wondering about?

This will be first ever seasonal event, where i wont use single hero token. Its kinda sad, but idk how many ppl will chase maybe Yunan costume.
All other heroes are like S1 now, or even worse.


good morning here is the Italian guide of the event


Sadly, this is my only seasonal 5* hero… :frowning:

I only have 5*s from Season 1 / Season 4 / some HOTMs. After over 3 years of playing…

Well, I’ll be chasing Kara if I don’t get her from other portals. And if I get these seasonal heroes, well, maybe they will have some use in SE :wink:

Wait, what? That. Roc. Costume art :joy:


Haha, that’s exactly my reaction. As other people said phoenix costume would be awesome, but no… we got… this… :rofl:

Yeah, Roc in sunglasses looks cool. I want him just for the look :wink:
And waiting for Hisan with sunglasses :wink:

Decided to use a few tokens and landed Yunan after 7 pulls, happy with that since I only have Rana. Glad I had some good luck after my bad luck with the Costume portal :slight_smile:

Congrats, I decided not to pull in Summer event and save coins for either new Kalevala one or Halloween.


Thx, I have added this calendar to the OP :slight_smile:


True that.
Lucky me got Kara out of two pulls during Gargoiles, so dont have to push it anymore.
Good luck getting it!

Haha, right? If I saw that art posted somewhere else, I thought it would be a meme! :rofl: I want him, just to make my opponent laugh.

Also - What is that juicebox doing there?! :joy:

I´d love that! I really like Hisan. He needs a costume, that poor fragile horse :racehorse: :dark_sunglasses:

I found a strategy to make this event interesting and funny :joy:


Hard done with S1 4* and unleveled 3* troops

Its possible, you just have to focus on making hourglass and lamps and don’t let bosses fire, it should be possible with 3*/4* mix team and its worth it.

Good luck to all newer players.
