    I'm really looking forward to this event. While there is an element of luck, strategy is needed to achieve a fully leveled World's Fair.

    Yeah, but the building is 6x4. That's also one of the biggest we have gotten.

    Also, just a tip - only buy the 330 pack, and if you need brushes buy those. Don't buy anything else or you are getting less bang for your buck.

    I loved this game on beta. There's a bit of a learning curve to it but it's worth it. I implore everyone to study the .Gif in the announcement feedback because there is no wiggle room to wasted tools if you want the World's Fair. I'll repost here:


    I did a bit of math (and @xivarmy was kind enough to check and correct it for me) and it looks like if you want a second fair it would be 36K diamonds with how it was on beta so somewhere in the $250-$300 range depending on what freebies are thrown in with diamond purchase, personally I'll be passing on this myself. Though this game is so fun you might end up spending diamonds just so you can play more. I do hope they make a few tweeks and add more scrolls in overall.

    The carousel was also changed in beta and not reflected on the announcement page. It's 3x3 providing both attack and defense. https://forgeofempires.fandom.com/wiki/Carousel

    Yes it is bigger, but it is also the most efficient FP/square building in the game, and only needs a single motivation for those 10 FPs that cannot be plundered. It's smaller than a TF, produces twice as many FPs, and cannot be plundered. Plus it provides population and some goods. It is arguably the best building in the game besides fully leveled Yggdrasil and GBs of course.

    I would much rather have bigger buildings that are significantly more efficient than a bunch of smaller, less efficient buildings.

    Also the image they provide of someone barreling through left to right isn't really how you'd play it, it's a bad representation of what to do. One thing not mentioned is once you expose a shadowed tile to "air" you will be able to see it's contents and can decide if it's something worth picking up or not before wasting a tool to get it exclusively.

    If you want the Fair without using any diamonds you are better off passing over the Vases. You will get some anyway as you clear, some you may need to leave behind.

    The event buildings that give 6 fp in 16 tiles are the most fp efficient buildings in the game so far. Colossus also gives scaling attack power depending on age- making it probably the best building dropped at the moment.

    I am currently in the Progressive Era, and already in the Modern Era on the C-Map.

    Is it a coincidence that the side quests I am receiving right now relate to the world fair?

    This maybe incorrect but according to the forge wiki World Fair building once motivated can be plundered.

    World's Fair [​IMG]
    6x4 Special residential building
    Provides [​IMG] population, [​IMG] coins.
    Provides double coins and up to 10 [​IMG]Goods and up to [​IMG] 10 Forge Pointswhen motivated and can be plundered.

    Either way played on beta and it was an outstanding event. Do agree that if you want any chance to get a level 10 World Fair, then make uncovering the idols your focus. You will still get plenty of vases for the other prizes. I did not do this until later in the game and only got up to level 8. Still well worth keeping.

    And, for you "little guys" I am only in very early EMA and had no problem completing the quest line.

    Technically that is a true statement. The World's Fair provides extra goodies when motivated, and also the World's Fair can be plundered. Despite the awkward phrasing, those two situations are mutually exclusive, as it cannot be plundered if it has been motivated.

    I wonder if you can get scrolls from your events around your city like you were supposed to get cherry blossom trees on the last event?

    I always enjoy watching the videos the game devs create, but sometimes I need to use the closed captioning to understand what they are saying. Does anyone know why the language for the closed captions are in another language, not English?
