What are live events?
Live events are short tournaments where you compete with other growers to earn prizes. You don't have to participate if you don't want to, but all event participants will earn a reward no matter what, so there's no reason not to!
How do I join?
To be eligible to join an event, you will need to have unlocked your Grow Goals. In other words, you will need to have unlocked at least 7 plots before you can participate in events.
When an event begins, you will see a crown icon appear on the left side of your screen. Tap that icon to pop up your event window, and you will see a "Join" button. Tap "Join" to get started.
How do I earn points?
You earn event points every time you complete a grow goal. The more difficult the grow goal (wood, bronze, silver, etc), the more points you will earn towards your event standing.
What do I get for playing?
As soon as you join an event, your overall coin profits will be boosted by 3x for the duration of the event. You don't even have to do anything!
Players are split into groups of 200 for each event, so you will compete with 200 other players to earn the top placement. No matter where you place at the end of the event, you will still earn loot! Here's the full list of rewards:
How do I see my rank?
Once you have joined an event, you can tap on the crown event icon to view more details about the current event.
Top Players - This shows you the current top 3 players in your event. Your rank (in this screenshot, the player named "bahb") is shown below.
Prizes - This shows you your current rewards. This user (bahb) is in 5th place, so their current reward falls in the rank 4 - 6 category. If they are able to advance to rank 3, they will earn the rewards listed under "Next Prize" at the end of the event.
