Race Of Champions OverviewEdit
|Participate in a new co-op race starting soon! Work together to complete tasks, race against other co-op teams and win rewards.|
What is Race of Champions?EditRace of Champions is a new Township event in v7.6 where co-op members work together to complete tasks and race against other co-op teams. The race can be accessed via a new race track building located near the co-op and Regatta buildings.
How Often do Races Occur?Edit
- That is currently unknown. This first event occurred in between Regatta seasons during what was recently the Interseasonal Regatta week.
- Races begin on Tuesday @ 8 AM UTC (3 AM EST / 1 AM PST).
- Races last for 6 days and end the following Monday @ 8 AM UTC (3 AM EST / 1 AM PST/ 6/7 PM AUS).
- You are given 24 hours on Monday to view results, collect rewards and prepare for the next Regatta season.
How do I Participate or Opt Out?Edit
- To join the race, be a member of a co-op AND ensure that "take part in co-op competitions" is toggled on in Additional Settings before the race starts.
- To opt out of the race you must toggle off the "take part in co-op competitions" box in additional settings. (Don't forget to toggle it back on if you want to race in the next Regatta.)
- If all members in the co-op opt out of the race, then your co-op will not participate in the event. Your Regatta league level will not be affected.
Leaving a Co-op After the Race StartsEdit
- If players leave during a race while their status was 'racing' your co-op will not lose any points earned; however, your co-op will be left with fewer players to complete team tasks and the player who left will not be able to continue to compete if they return. They will also not be able to compete in any other team's race.
- Any end of event rewards are forfeited for players who leave or are kicked out of the co-op.
When Do We Enter the Race? Edit
- The task board will display when the first co-op player who is opted in accesses the racing center.
- The task board is populated with tasks the moment the race officially commences (08:00 UTC), and even if nobody has yet accessed the racing center to see what the tasks are, every co-op's participant starts contributing to the completion of tasks from that moment (a little progress bar appears temporarily on the upper right side of the screen when you contribute towards the goal of a task).
- Your co-op will be matched up with other co-op teams after completing the first event task. All teams in your group will consist of the same number of racers (players who are opted in) not necessarily the same number of co-op members.
Tasks And PointsEdit
- Your co-op will work together as a team to complete tasks and earn points. Completed tasks increase your team racing score and determine your final place in the race (1st through 8th). Complete as many tasks as you can before the event ends to maximize your points.
- There are 5 tasks on the gameplay board with varying point values. When a task is completed it refreshes and is replaced with a new task after 1 minute. You cannot pay to speed up a task refresh interval. Tasks cannot be dumped from the board.
- Tasks are completed concurrently by all co-op members. You do not have to claim or start a task. If your gameplay activity meets a task's criteria, then it counts toward completing that task. i.e. sending trains counts toward a train task, or harvesting crops counts toward an associated task.
- There are both regular tasks and timed tasks. Tasks are similar to regular Regatta tasks excluding special seasonal tasks like mystery tasks, and smelting. The difficulty level of tasks scales based on the number of racers.
|Regular tasks provide points for you and your team when completed and do not expire. Individual points are allocated proportionally based on the percentage of the task you complete. If you contribute 25% of the progress in completing a 100 task, then you get 25 added to your individual score.|
|Gift tasks with timers provide points just like regular tasks and also provide additional rewards if completed before the timer expires. The countdown timer starts as soon as the task displays on the board; timers vary in duration (9-16 hours reported so far). Each participating co-op member receives a gift even if they do not contribute toward the task. If the timer expires, then the task converts to a regular task and no reward is earned. You can earn a maximum of 7 gifts (confirm) each event, and these tasks stop appearing on the task board when the maximum is reached.|
End of Race RewardsEdit
Each racing member of the winning co-op team receives 100 , 75 for each of the second place team racers and, 50 for 3rd place. Racers on the 4th through 8th place teams receive other rewards, which may vary. There are no individual rewards based on how many points you earn individually; all end of race rewards are based on co-op team performance.
|4th||Renowned Racer||4 axes, 3 red paint|
|6th||Future Champion||45,000 coins|
Gift Task RewardsEdit
Your team can earn a maximum of 7 gifts by completing timed gift tasks during the event.
Insights and commentary on tentative rulesEdit
This is just speculation, but in order to be able to come up with a strategy, this are some of the possible rules that are rumored that will apply to the Race of Champions:
- You begin the regatta with 5 tasks
- The tasks have no time limits, you can do them up until the end of the race on Monday. Occasionally you will see a timed task with 🎁 icon. The countdown for such tasks starts as soon as they appear on board. Once the time is up, 🎁 icon will disappear and the task will turn into a normal one. If you complete the 🎁 task before the timer runs out, ALL racers will get a gift.
- The co-op can complete 7 🎁 tasks in total and get 7 rewards for it. Once you completed 7 gift tasks, they stop appearing on the board. If you don’t manage to complete a gift task within its time limits, another one will appear some time after until you collect all 7.
- The co-op starts competing against other co-ops when the first task is completed
- Tasks can be completed by all the co-op members and each one can contribute, i.e. if the task requires the harvest of 600 wheat, one player can harvest 200 and another player can harvest 400 to complete the task
- Each co-op competes against 7 other coops
- At the end of the Race on Monday top 3 co-ops get Tcash rewards:
- 100 TCash for the winner
- 75 TCash for the second
- 50 TCash for the third
- Rewards for 4th-8th positions can be different (mine tools, expansion or barn tools, ingots etc.). All competition rewards are for each racer.
- Tasks cannot be dumped but they can be ignored if you do not wish to complete them. This will leave them on the board, limiting the number of replacement tasks.
During beta testing, after tasks were completed, the new ones refreshed in 1 minutes, and you couldn’t refresh them for tcash.
- You do not need to select a task to participate; anything you do will contribute to the task's completion. If there is a task for mining 500 ore and you mine 10 ore, it will be counted.
- The difficulty of the tasks depends on the amount of members in the co-op, e.g.: in a one-person co-op you may get as a task to harvest 400 wheat, but in a coop with 30 members you might get a task to harvest 20,000 wheat.
