  • February 8-18, 2020

Description

The objective of the event is to collect Festival Coins Festival Coins.

Coins are contained in Festival Coin Packs. They are obtainable from the quests, a daily free Coin button (once per day), through the Festival TLEs or from purchasing Festival bundles.

Purchasing the Festival Pass for Tokens 10,000 or an in-app purchase grants additional rewards when a new tier is reached. If the Festival Pass is purchased, all Premium rewards in completed tiers will be awarded.

3 quests are available for each day of the event and every quest has 5-8 levels.

Several one-time purchase bundles were available during the event with each bundle giving Tokens, Festival Coins and Fusion Coins. Later bundles would give Pro Kit cards and credits as well. Purchasing a bundle would unlock a larger bundle.

If the player reaches tier 25 and has leftover coins, it is converted into a lump sum amount of credits. Purchasing a festival bundle after reaching tier 25 will not award additional credits.

Festival Special

At the end of this event, a "Festival Special" feature, functionally similar to the milestone version of daily ads, was made available for 6 days, where players were given one free spin per day to obtain an assortment of rewards; an additional 1 or 5 spins could be purchased for Tokens 150 or Tokens 675 respectively. The Lotus Elise Cup 260 and its Kit cards were featured in this Festival Special.

Strategy and statistics

  • The Festival has 156 quests with each quest granting one Festival Coin Pack Festival Coin Pack.
  • Each Festival Coin Pack can grant 3, 5 or 8 Coins. As of Feb 19, 2020, the statistical average of Coins per Pack is Festival Coins 3.94 (sample size: 1,282 trials).
  • Tier 25 requires Festival Coins 1,550 to be reached. Given the average of 3.94 Coins per Pack, this means that a player needs 394 Coin Packs to reach tier 25. As the quests only grant 156 Coin Packs, 244 have to be acquired by other means (Festival TLEs and purchases with real money).
  • TLE strategy:
    • There are three dedicated Festival TLEs that reward Coin Packs. The first starts roughly when most players have reached tier 8 which rewards the McLaren Senna. It is essential to reach a high leaderboard position in the first TLE to unlock more tiers that grant Festival Kit Box Festival Kit Boxes needed to further upgrade the Senna.
    • Players who have bought the Premium Pass for real money or tokens get significantly more Festival Kit Boxes to upgrade their car, so it is impossible to reach high leaderboard positions without the Premium Pass.
    • The second Coin Pack TLE starts later, rewards more Coin Packs and finishes 4 days before the end of the Festival. The third Coin Pack TLE rewards even more Coin Packs and finishes one day before the end of the Festival.
    • The three Coin Pack TLEs grant a total of 226 Coin Packs (46 in first, 60 in second, 120 in third TLE), but this requires reaching the top 1 % in all of them. Reaching "only" the top 2 %  rewards 73 Coin Packs less which makes it impossible to reach tier 25 without buying Festival Coins for real money.
    • All in all, an average of €/$ 40–50 is needed to reach tier 25.
  • Upgrade tips:
    • As high leaderboard positions are essential for obtaining further Festival Kit Box Festival Kit Boxes to upgrade the Festival car, pro upgrades should be applied wisely.
    • Speed-based vehicles should be upgraded in the order Drivetrain → Tires → Exhaust → Suspension. Drivetrain improves top speed and acceleration which are most needed to compete in the TLEs.
    • Nitro-based vehicles should be upgraded in the order Exhaust → Suspension → Drivetrain → Tires. Exhaust improves nitro and acceleration which are more important for vehicles that gain more total speed through nitro than top speed.
    • As the Festival grants only few cards until the first TLE, it is essential to use them to upgrade only that section that delivers the most speed, no other sections (i. e. only Drivetrain for speed-based vehicles or only Exhaust for nitro-based vehicles).
