Thank you. Cop-out is probably that this isn't an "event" because there's no actual content and it's just a pointless grind that forces you off your normal gameplay in order to get cosmetics. Were you planning to have a Conquest tournament this week? Guess not. Bizarre Boron Fusswell, scryer extraordinaire. Minigames & ninja fixes & achievement ideas!

Perhaps you're half right; perhaps we can't win. But we can fight.

They also said there would never be Microtransactions, Real World Trading, skills would never go past 99, and TH isn't gambling.

Their word is as reliable as a car without wheels.

I agree, but, to be fair, one can rely on a car without wheels' remaining absolutely motionless. :P

I think what OP referred to are the "temporary events" mentioned by the Episodic Content Team. They are on-off events like the World Events, with lore involved.

This week's live "temporary" events are likely the work of the LiveOps Content Team. They never said never on any "temporary events". :)

In a recent news post it said you wouldn't be doing limited time events anymore. This is a limited time event.


I believe you misunderstood what was stated in that news post.

"What the team won't be doing"

It’s also worth noting what the team won’t be making. We won’t be working on temporary content - we want our content to enrich the game in the long term. We also won’t be making world events, random events, minigames, D&Ds, new content types, or huge lavish quests that have no connection to the current narrative."


This team is not working on Temporary events, But another team it seems was working on it.

Though I agree that we should not have these temp events, but they need to release something for us to do for a week.

You can actually just play normally and get the cosmetics. That is why the event tokens drop from everything. You aren't being forced to do anything. I'm not entirely sure how important these cosmetics will be in the future, but I assume they won't be significant at all. You can *probably* skip the event.

Just playing normally I've been able to claim the first item. If I play as usual all week it won't be a problem for me. However, as a semi retired adult with a grown up family I have plenty of free time. I can see that someone with less leisure time might struggle.
