Spartan Assassins Summer 2021

A massive fleet of Roman ships is about to land on the coastline of your empire! As the enemy soldiers plan on marching on the cities of Greece, your leadership is needed. You and all your fellow players need to unite the Assassins of Sparta to halt the invasion!

Starting July 9th 10:00am, you are called to defend your homeland with the aid of Sparta’s Assassins. You decide over life and death: eliminated cavalrymen, legionnaires and sappers drop equipment pieces, which you can put together to complete collections that unlock special rewards, and Battle Tokens, a valuable currency for use in the event shop. Join forces with other players to prevent the invasion and unlock powerful community rewards until the event ends on July 22nd, 23:59 CET.

Don't forget, the shop will be open until 23:59 on July 24th, so make sure you spend all your Battle Tokens before then!

Based on the last time we ran this event earlier this year, we've made some adjustments to try and address some of the community feedback received.
  • We're running the event again as a longer event, as this was one of the pieces of feedback, that making the event shorter whilst not adjusting too much else, made the event inherently harder.
  • We've adjusted the way the Community Goals are calculated, using a different calculation method which uses different activity parameters to determine the targeted goal. We don't want to give away too many details, as we want to see if the new calculation method works well, but it should result in a better experience for everyone.
  • We've made some changes to the event's shop, both the items available, and a couple of items have been improved in their potency.
  • We've made some improvements to the armor rewards, hopefully making them a bit more worth the effort.
Some more important points to cover. The event will run on ZZ22. We want to be absolutely clear that this is not the new normal, and is simply because we want to try and get the most out of the testing. Unfortunately, the timing of when we got these balance changes complete coincided with when we wanted to open the first Artifacts world. In general, we won't enable an event on a brand new world, this is an exception, not a rule.

For more information, please check out the Wiki (this has not yet been updated with the changes above).

We're looking forward to joining forces with you. See you in-game!

Best regards,
Your Grepolis Team
