    So, it only lasts 1 day and 18 hours. Rewards are granted at the end of the event. It requires the use of scout markers. Each battle is worth 20 pirate points and the first reward comes at 200 points. After every successful battle, the difficulty increases.

    It seems that finally, the scout marker perk is somewhat useful again. And saving berries is well worth it again but only if you are participating in the event.

    1st reward: 200 points
    2nd reward: 500 points
    3rd reward: 800 points
    4th reward: 1200 points

    EDIT: General consensus seems to be this event is not worth spending valuable resources to complete 100%. A better use of scout markers is to scout generic markers rather than event ones. The main reason is you get more resources and gold from regular markers than event markers and the rewards aren't worth it.

    The rewards from each scouted pirate battle is ridiculously low. Compared to a regular scouted battle that is. Sure, you get the rune key rewards, but I hardly feel it's worth dropping any berries/scouts on the pirate event in this new format. Rather save them until Saturday and get some gold.

    I just played 15 levels, just to see how many it would take to get to the second reward. Looks like it's probably 500. I don't see how it's possible to finish the whole thing. Also, I agree with feffe, the rewards just for doing the battles isn't worth it. At least in the regular scout adventures you usually get 2 levels to fight.

    My household of 3 players usually have way more scout berries that we have time to deal with them. And too many of weak birds to deal with as usual.

    Sitting at 400 points and I'm only halfway-ish to reward two. I think its 600 for reward two. I think you guys are right about this not being worth it. I'll finish reward two and then call it. No way to finish this without spending gems. I normally don't even use my scouts so this is just a waste of time. And you only get 10 gold keys.

    So you have to finish the whole event to get any of the keys? I got level 1 completed at 200 points and it put a tick on the first 40 silver keys. But check the rune chests and they arent there.

    So they have made an event which you cannot finish without spending gems and dont give you any of the rewards along the way.

    Definately not going any further with that.

    These mini events have always been that way, whatever rewards you reach are awarded once it closes out.

    You get what you achieve at the end of the event

    Ok thanks, I dont think I have done a mini event before then.

    Even those keys aren't exactly super worthwhile. I can see people may spend $$ to get extra turns in the event if they are giving out significant amount of silver and gold tickets.

    Ah, these events are back where they require the scout markers?

    500 for the second set of keys
  14. Nyk

    It took me 500 as well
  15. Buds

    250 for first prize,
    500 for second,
    750 for final,
    1500 for bonus.

    I remember this from memory.

    Was that for the old events way back in the day? This event has the first at 200 exact. 100% sure of it.

    Yes, it was.
    I enjoyed being a soft-launch player.

    It looks like reward 3 is 800.

    I think old pirate event you get different token count for different difficulty levels.

    The old one gave decent rewards, not these dumb keys. AND, pretty sure we got the second pig battle as well.
    This whole current idea is a $$ grab joke.
