I like that last year's mechanics are returning, should be great for getting daily specials :)

Not a big fan of the main building, but not everything can be made for attackers. We got a great attack building from St Pat, a poor building for attackers from Spring, a great one from Archaeology, and now a bad one again. I don't mind alternating like this, a little bit to all playstyles :)

On many many previous announcements devs used to state about last year main event prizes as well as main prizes of previous events/ This time no mention about it? so @lordwasa could you or any other @InnoGames staff please clarify this moment. I am talking about Hippodrome selection kits and other usual football prizes (sometimes you mention not only last year main prize)

You can see the track in one of the screenshots, and I imagine the other previous rewards will be available as well :)
 
We know you've been waiting for this, so let's talk about this event's building reward! The new main reward is the "Athlon Abbey", an imposing 5x4 upgradable building with 10 levels! This building provides you with Happiness, Population and Coins on base level. Upon leveling it up, it will also deliver Supplies, Medals, Forge Points, Goods, as well as Defense and Attack boosts for your defending armies!
Defending army?
Trash!

Only battleboost for the defending army? It seems to be a building only for beginners not for eliteplayers. They will complaint again. Like that was about the suishun mill.

Finally remove the city defense bonuses from the game. This is pointless in the current context, how not to understand? This would be usefull if the game had no other features than fighting with neighbors. Who needs def if it still breaks through? Who needs def if it's the most vile, boring, and completely obsolete element of the game? You've ruined the winter event. Now you've ruined the soccer event.

The elitegamer have a lots of battleboost for the defending army and want more for the attacking army. That will be the point.

And daily special: the pillar of heroines ! That's my favourit building.

I am top elite player in my main, used to be top-1 rated in all 4 categories (Rating, GB lvl, Medals, Guild positions) and I have 2 spear fighters as my city's defence last 6+ years. Y? Because def in this this game is TRASH 101.5% Just count amount of space which you gonna use for 3k% def and at least 500% att in def and than imagine what they can steal from your city when they break this hard def and how much you can produce from that def footprint :) So def in def and att in def is DEFINITELY not worth even 1 square footprint, imho. So main question is amount of FP's and goods on top lvl from new building. We shall see this soon.

Nice large image of the event building in the announcement.
Are there more available for other/ all buildings in the game?

I m not the top or elite player in my world. But I stopped carе about def the city as soon as I realized it was impossible to build defense in this game. Damn, I'm not even being attacked by anyone!

Any fighter manages, in GbG, to cross a defense with 2 waves of at least the double defensive bonus than his offensive bonus.
On average, players have 2-3 times more% attack than defense.
In view of these observations, it is futile to try to defend your city, especially since if you harvest on time, you have nothing to gain.

For% defenses to become attractive, it would require a major overhaul of the defense system.
By multiplying the defense values by 5, the fighting would already be more balanced and would offer a real choice in the management of his city.
