Events consist of a series of time limited quests that reward you with either event currency or a prize once each quest is completed and sometimes both. No quest can be aborted during an event, as there are normally 2 options provided for those that are not able to complete one of them.
Events have offered special buildings for completing the Event. While some will reward you one for completing a number of Quests during the Event, these Events also offer Upgrades to the building for completing more Quests as well as completing the Event.
A Seasonal Event can be linked to a specific time of the year and normally occurs every year. The Halloween and Winter Events have been ever present. Valentine’s Day, Easter and Summer came next and while we have lost Valentine’s Day & Easter, we have gained Carnival & Spring in their place. Mayday was introduced briefly, later that year the Fall Event first appeared. The Summer Event is the only Event that will move between July and August, it appears in July when there is no Soccer Event and in August when there is one.
A Special Event does not fit into either the Historical or Seasonal spheres. The FoE Soccer Cup was introduced to run at the same time as the FIFA World Cup, it returned two years later for the UEFA EUROs, returning for a third time once again for the FIFA World Cup, then again a year later for the Women’s World Cup. Other Events have included Forge of Empires birthday events, and a Memorial Event to remember Anwar Dalatia key member of the Forge of Empires team who sadly died.
Historical Quest lines
There have been 21 Historical Events while 24 had been planned. The introduction of the Viking and Japanese Settlements, seems to have taken up most of InnoGames time leaving the last three Historical Events unfinished and with no planned release dates.
The following table lists all the events that have occurred as of date in the game, categorized by year and type.
