First of all let’s recap on the basics: - Events are run the majority of the time in Game of War and will allow you to earn additional bonus items by completing specific tasks. During normal game play they come in three different types:- Solo, Alliance and Inferno. Events are all accessed on the right hand side of the screen, where you can track your progress, find details of the requirements and see the time remaining.
Each event has a specific time limit for you to complete and depending on the number of points you score, you are rewarded with three different prize levels. The rewards are cumulative i.e. if you earn enough points to unlock the third prize then you will be rewarded with all three prizes.
You earn points by completing the tasks listed. For the top scoring players/alliances you can also earn additional high level rewards, but for the purpose of this guide these are ignored, as you are competing against other players you cannot guarantee to win these prizes.
These involve your whole alliance working together to complete a task, if you achieve the task in the time limit your alliance will be rewarded with Bronze, Silver and Gold chests (depending on which goal you achieve).
Because the items you receive from chests are random this is not a reliable method of obtaining speed ups.
Solo events usually have fairly long timers and reward you with some useful items, but nothing special. Due to the time taken between solo events and the quality of the gifts, these are not a reliable method of obtaining speed ups.
However, solo events often have the same requirements as Alliance and Inferno, allowing you to complete them at the same time. For this reason it is worth keeping an eye on solo events, to see if they coincide with other events.
Inferno events are where the money is..... or in this case Speeds Ups. These are very short events (usually 1 hour) with high level rewards. A new inferno event will usually start every hour, allowing you to pick and choose the easier ones, with the better rewards.
The requirement to complete these events in the time limit can be very difficult through normal game play, but with careful planning you can complete multiple events quickly.
Whilst most inferno events offer great rewards, the only ones that work with the speed up trick are:-
Troop & Trap Training Events – where you have to train troops, traps, or both for points.
Research and Building Power events – where you are awarded points for increasing your research power, building power, or both.
For the above events the idea is simple: once the event starts you need to score enough points to get the 1st, 2nd or 3rd prize levels. To accomplish this you will use speed ups to instantly train troops, or finish research and building timers, to get to the required points.
However, the key is to make sure the speeds up rewarded for each prize are equal to or greater than the amount you spend. This way you will always end up with equal to, or more than the speed ups you started with.
It sounds simple enough, but there are a few things to consider first. Let’s look at a research and building event. The first thing to do is work out the total rewards in speed ups for each prize.
Prize 1 offers 1 x 3 hour speed up and 2 x 60 minute speed ups i.e. 5 hours in total and requires 3,325 points.
Prize 2 offers 1 x 3 day speed up, 2 x 24 hour speed ups and 2 x 15 hour speed ups i.e. 6 days and 6 hours in total and requires 82,250 points.
Prize 3 offers 1 x 3 day speed up, 2 x 24 hour speed ups and 2 x 15 hour speed ups i.e. 6 days and 6 hours in total and requires 164,500 points.
For this event you are awarded 1 point for increasing your building power or research power by 1.
Let’s concrete on research for this event. All times stated below are worked out on an easily obtainable 150% research bonus (see this guide to help you if your research bonus is low).
For the first prize we need to increase our research power by 3,325. You now need to scan through your available research trees to find an ability which will reward you with over 3,325 power, but takes less than 5 hours to research.
For this example I used Spearmen, a tier 1 strategic troop which rewards 3,750 power and takes 48 minutes to research.
Using speed ups you instantly unlock spearmen and bank over 4 hours in additional research boosts!
This is harder as you need 82,250 points to unlock prize 2, but the rewards are greater. From the first research I had already made 3,750 and therefore I will need a further 78,500 to unlock the 2nd prize.
Scanning through my research trees I can see I need March Speed 7 which rewards you with 64,000 power and takes 2 days and 3 hours to research. I also needed Troop Load 5 which takes 13 hours and rewards you with 16,000 power.
This pushes my points over the second prize threshold and took an additional 2 days and 16 hours, but rewards me with 6 days and 6 hours in speed ups.
I have now instantly unlocked March Speed 7, Troop Load 5 and banked 3 days and 14 hours in additional speed ups!
The final prize needs 164,500 points and I have already accumulated 83,750 points from the first two prizes, leaving me an additional 80,750 points. I went for Ore Production 8 which rewards 97,500 power and takes for 3 days 14 hours.
This pushes my points over the third prize threshold and took an additional 3 days and 14 hours, but rewards me with 6 days and 6 hours in speed ups.
I therefore have instantly unlocked Ore Production 8 and banked a further 2 days and 16 hours in additional research boosts!
At the end of this event I have instantly increased my research power by over 178,250 and walked away with an additional 6 days and 10 hours in speedups. This process can be repeated with buildings and troop training, allowing you to increase your army size, without waiting for long timers.
Preparing for these events is key and the following points should help you maximise your chances of succeeded during an Inferno Event:-
Once you get the hang of this you should never run out of speed ups again!
