Forge Bowl Event
2019 Forge Bowl Event

15th of January, 2019 - 3rd of February, 2019


Introduction

The 2019 Forge Bowl Event is a special event occurring between 15th of January and the 3rd of February 2019.

Over the duration of 20 days, this event will dish out fun and prizes for Forgers all over the world in honour of the prestigious sport, American Football. With sentiments of American Football as a sport that deserves worldwide popularity, Innogames states it as being a sport of continued growth[1]. An accurate statement regarding its popularity would read like this; "Though American football retains its top position as the most popular sport to spectate in the United States of America, its popularity has slipped since peaking in 2006 and 2007."[2] Forge of Empires keeps bringing back the "Forge of Empires Bowl Event" each year despite the continuing scandals surrounding the sport. This year is no exception.

Event Window

Example Forge Bowl 2019 Event Window

As you can see, the window contains the following elements:

  1. This indicates your League. The more active you are, the better League you will get and the juicier prizes will be yours.
  2. Here the Daily Special is displayed. It changes every day.
  3. This is the Football Counter which indicates the total number of Footballs Footballs (Event Currency) that you possess.
  4. These are the Players. Each Player needs to be paid with Footballs Footballs. Once you select a Player, he will reward you with a random reward from his pool of available prizes. They are of three tiers, Gold, Silver and Bronze.
  5. This is the Touchdown Reward. It indicates the prize you will get upon reaching Touchdown, and also provides a prelude about the upcoming prizes.

Players

Players are the key method of progressing and scoring goals, so that the ball may advance further and goals might be scored. The thing to wonder upon is that how far does each player pass the ball? This is shown below.

Each type of player passes the ball over a certain distance:

  • Lazy player: 4 yards
  • Bronze player: 5 yards
  • Silver player: 6 yards
  • Gold player: 7 yards

(The full distance of the field (from the 20th marker to the finish line) is 80 yards. All leftover yards are transferred to the next field.)

As can be seen above, the Gold Players pass the ball the furthest, while the Lazy Player is the worst in this matter. However, simply on the basis of how far a player throws the ball we cannot completely formulate how efficient he is.

Thus, the cost ratio added to the Players table, provides a clearer picture of how efficient each player is. The cost ratio shows the amount of footballs needed for a distance of 1 yard.

Leagues

There are 5 leagues in this event, namely (in ascending order):

  • Rookie League
  • Amateur League
  • Bronze League
  • Silver League
  • Gold League

The thing to be kept in mind is that the League system is not like the Top Gamester or Casanova (in Carnival events), or something like that, which offer rewards to the best player of the neighbourhood. There are 2 main differences:

  1. In Leagues, you are not competing with your neighbourhood, you are competing with the entire World, and the scale of competition is huge here.
  2. Also, prizes are not awarded at the end of each week (like other events). Instead, you have the entire event to make it to the Gold League! Use the days of the event to the fullest potential to reach the top, and prizes are awarded at the end of the event.

The prizes can be found below, in the Prize Systems section.

The yards required to make it into a League (or get relegated from one) differ according to the status of the World.

A few of points to be kept in mind. One, you cannot be in more than one League at any particular time. Second, inactivity can even relegate you, that means push you to lower leagues. And third, Leagues reward activity, i.e. more number of goals, so make sure to play this event and score as many goals as you can. Sweet rewards are waiting for you!

Getting Footballs

The player starts the event with 200 Footballs and can win more through three ways, first, through the rewards of quests, second, with the daily autocompleted quests (they give per 120 Footballs as a reward) and third, by buying them with diamonds:

  • Footballs 100 Footballs = Diamonds 200 Diamonds (2.00 diamonds per 1 football)
  • Footballs 400 Footballs = Diamonds 700 Diamonds (1.75 diamonds per 1 football)
  • Footballs 1200 Footballs = Diamonds 1995 Diamonds (1.6625 diamonds per 1 football)

Expected Footballs to receive during the Forge Bowl Event :

  • Begining of the Event : .......................................... Footballs 200 Footballs
  • Daily connexions (approximated) : ..... 20 x 120 = Footballs 2 400 Footballs
  • Completing Quests : ........................... 50 x 120 = Footballs 6 000 Footballs
  • Milestone Bonus : ..................................................Footballs 2 000 Footballs

Total : ............................................................................Footballs 10 600 Footballs

In order to score a Touchdown, 80 yards must be crossed. Assuming 15 Footballs / yard, 1200 Footballs will be needed to score a Touchdown. Expected touchdowns : 10600 / 1200 = 8,83. About 8-9 touchdowns should be scored giving 4-5 Colossus Upgrades. In addition to the level 1 + 3 Upgrades from quests, the Colossus level 8-9 should be reached without diamonds. The level 10 could be reached depending on the Player's League.

To score 9 Touchdowns : n_Touchdowns = n_Footballs / (n_yards x Average_Ratio) ; with Average_Ratio given by the choice of the pass (see Prize System below).

Then, Average_Ratio = n_Footballs / (n_yards x n_Touchdowns) = 10600 / (80 x 9) = 14,72 Footballs / Yard. It is largely accessible without selecting always long passes.

Summary table : Touchdown scored in function of the Footballs / Yards ratio.

# Touchdowns Total Footballs Total Yards to cross Max. Footballs / Yard Cost
8 10 600 640 16,56
9 10 600 720 14,72
10 10 600 800 13,25
