Special Game Play: Egg Bombs
Normal and Advanced Modes
There are two modes for the Seasonal Event, 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 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.
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, they rotate at 07:00 GMT).
Once closed, the Offers Calendar can be accessed by tapping the Egg 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.

* EHT = Epic Hero Token; ETT = Epic Troop Token
NOTE: There is an apparent visual bug with the Offer Calendar changing days earlier than the offers rotate; for more on that, see: [KNOWN ISSUE] Springvale Calendar Changes Date at Different Time (00:00 GMT) than Offer Changes (07:00 GMT) – Visual Bug
UPDATE: The devs are fixing the Offer Calendar bug by having offers change over at 00:00 GMT instead of 07:00 GMT. This means the second day’s offer will be available for a shorter duration.
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.
Generally speaking, many people don’t regard Springvale as the best Seasonal Event heroes to use tokens for — but you may feel differently. For more discussion on this, see: What is the best Seasonal Summons?
You’ll also have the same chance at the HOTM as usual when using Epic Hero Tokens. For more on that, see Anzogh – New April 2019 HOTM (Hero of the Month): First Thoughts & Discussion.
During Seasonal Events, your Base is updated in the spirit of the season.
For Springvale, this includes colorful eggs, and vibrant plant life all around your Base.
How do you feel about the Egg Bombs?
- I love them! They’re a lot of fun, too bad they only come once per year, and you can’t replay the Stages.
- They’re a fun change of pace, and I like playing them now, but once through the Stages is enough.
- I don’t like or dislike them
- I dislike them, I’m glad they only come once per year.
- I hate them! I won’t play Springvale, or will do so begrudgingly just for the loot.
What’s your favorite part of Springvale?
- The Egg Bombs — I like the different gameplay
- Different Content – I like having something new to play that’s not available all the time
- The Offer Calendar — I like more opportunities to purchase items and gems
- The Avatars – I like getting the bunny hero avatars
- The Loot – I like the items available for completing Stages other than the avatars
- Something Else – share in the comments below!
- Nothing – I don’t like anything about Springvale
