Township: All about regattas

What types of regattas are there in Township?

There are two types of regattas in the game:
1. Seasonal regattas are competitions between co-ops where players complete tasks to earn valuable rewards and lead their co-ops to the highest places on the Global Leaderboard. Participants of seasonal regattas can earn a special in-game currency—tokens—that they can use to make purchases at the Yacht Club. Four seasonal regattas held under the same theme.
2. Interseasonal regattas are held for one week after each season. During this period, co-op members complete tasks to earn chests with prizes and win rewards for reaching co-op goals.

What do I do during seasonal regattas?

Tap the Pier to open the regatta window. There are several tabs in the seasonal regatta window:
1. Tasks. Here you can participate in regattas by picking tasks.
2. Race. This tab shows how you’re doing in the current regatta and gives other information about the competition.
– Tap the chest icon to open the window with rewards. You earn special regatta points for all the tasks you complete. The more points you score, the sooner your yacht will reach the chests that serve as race checkpoints. The more chests you and your fellow co-op members collect, the bigger and better your participation rewards will be. Once the race is over, this is the window where you can claim your rewards.
– Tap the ship wheel icon to see what leagues there are and learn about the one you are in.
3. Season. Here, you can see the current season’s tasks and rewards as well as the regatta Leaderboard. Tap the icon in the upper-left corner of the map to check your co-op’s statistics.

Regatta seasons: starting time and duration

Township regattas are held every week over a six-day period. New regattas start on Tuesdays at 8 am UTC. You need to know your time zone to calculate what time regattas start in your location either by adding or subtracting the time difference.

After a regatta finishes, you have a whole day to rest, switch co-ops, and get ready for the next regatta.

Each season has four regattas. After the season is over, there’s a week-long break, during which one interseasonal regatta is held. You can’t earn tokens during interseasonal regattas, and the results won’t count toward your Golden League leaderboard position, but you can spend tokens that were earned earlier. During interseasonal regattas, you can complete tasks to get chests with rewards and get prizes for reaching co-op goals.

Your co-op stays in the same league during interseasonal regattas, and you can join them at any time once they’re on.

How do I participate in regattas?

Participation in seasonal regattas is activated by default for all players. You can double check your status by going to Settings:
1. Tap the gear icon in the upper-left corner of the screen to open Settings.
2. Go to Additional Settings.

If there’s a check mark next to Participate in Regatta, it means that your participation in seasonal regattas is confirmed. If there is no check mark, and if you do not confirm your participation before the start of the next regatta, you won’t be able to take part in that race, and you will have to wait for the next one.

Your co-op enters regattas as soon as any one of its members confirms their participation, but the competition only starts when at least one of the members, irrespective of their rank in the co-op, picks a task.

ATTENTION: You don’t need to confirm your participation in interseasonal regattas—you can join them on any day while they are being held.

To participate, simply tap the Pier to open the regatta window and pick a task.

How do I restrict a co-op member from participating in regattas?

Co-op leaders and co-leaders can restrict other co-op members from participating in regattas. If a regatta is currently in progress, the player will be restricted from participating in the current regatta. Otherwise, they will be restricted from participation in the upcoming regatta.

To restrict a player from participating in a regatta, tap the player’s name in the list of co-op members and choose Restrict from regatta in the pop-up window.

To take part in the next seasonal regatta, the player needs to check off the corresponding point in Settings. They can take part in the next interseasonal regatta regardless of their status.

How do I complete regatta tasks? What kinds are there?

There are several types of regatta tasks:
– general tasks available both in seasonal and interseasonal regattas—learn more about them below.
– seasonal tasks available during thematic races
– temporary tasks only available during global events—learn more about them in the article

You have to complete most of the tasks by yourself, but for some of them, you can ask for help from your friends or fellow co-op members. You can buy crops and products at the market to complete some tasks.

These are the most common tasks in seasonal and interseasonal regattas:
– Feed animals. You can buy missing items at the market, on the farms, or request them in your co-op.
– Harvest crops. You have to complete this task by yourself. You can’t buy the required products at the market.
– Collect farm goods. You have to complete this task by yourself. You can’t buy the required products at the market.
– Produce factory goods. You have to complete this task by yourself. You can’t buy the required products at the market.
– Fill townspeople’s orders. You can buy missing items at the market, in the helicopter pad order window, or you can request them in your co-op.
– Send trains. You can buy missing items at the market or in the train station window, ask friends for help, or request them in your co-op.
– Fully load and send planes. You can buy missing items at the market or in the airport window, ask friends for help, or request them in your co-op.
– Bring fruit from the islands. You have to complete this task by yourself. You can’t buy the required products at the market.

How do I complete seasonal tasks?

Each season you can find special tasks that give more tokens for purchases at the Yacht Club than usual.

Seasonal tasks are marked with a flag on the task list. These special tasks aren’t available during interseasonal regattas, and you get more tokens for completing them. Here’s a list of all available seasonal tasks (although only three are featured in one given regatta at a time):
– Mystery tasks. You don’t know what the task is until you pick it. The reward for this type of task is 135 points and 25 tokens.
– Combo tasks. Every combo task consists of three mini-tasks you have to complete. The reward for this type of task is either 114 or 135 points.
– Simplified tasks. They are marked with a star in the task list. Each simplified task contains one of three tasks: producing goods at the factories, harvesting crops, or collecting goods from animal farms. You get the maximum of 135 points as well as 17 tokens for completing this type of task.
– Relay tasks. Co-op members take turns completing relay tasks. The first three times a relay task is completed, the number of points the co-op gets for this type of task increases, so it’s important to work as a team to get the most out of them.
– Earn coins. Earn the number of coins indicated. You can do that in your town or at your Zoo. The coins you buy in the store do not count toward completing this task.
– Smelt ingots. Only ingots, of any type, smelted in your foundry count toward completing this task.
– Send ships. Send off ships to the indicated island.
– Mine clay. Mine the amount of clay indicated.
– Load plane crates. Load plane crates at your airport or the airport of one of your friends. Coupons for filling railcars and plane crates can be used to complete this type of task.
– Load train cars. Load train cars in your town or one of your friends’ towns. Coupons for filling train cars and plane crates can be used to complete this type of task.
– Use mining tools. Use the indicated tool in the mine a certain number of times.

All seasonal tasks take into account a player’s level and the availability of the buildings needed to complete the tasks. You can tap the question mark in the Season tab to read the descriptions of the current season’s tasks.

What do I need to know about seasonal regatta tasks?

Once a regatta starts, your job is to help your co-op by completing tasks. Your personal task journal records all the tasks you’ve completed or dumped and the number of points you’ve earned for your co-op in the current regatta (Statistics button).

Tasks marked with a flag icon are special seasonal tasks. Completing them gets you more tokens that you can use to buy unique decorations and rewards.

Most tasks are time limited. You can see how much time you have left to complete your current task and how many points it will earn for your co-op by tapping the task’s icon in the Tasks tab or on the main screen (on the right).

Co-op leaders, co-leaders, and elders can dump any task that hasn’t been picked in the Tasks tab. It takes 30 minutes for new tasks to appear. Every co-op member can complete a maximum of 7 to 15 tasks depending on the league their co-op is in (the higher the league, the more tasks there are available). If you run out of tasks, you can buy an extra one using Township Cash.

Each task has its own difficulty level, which is why the number of points you get for completing them varies. The higher your league, the better your chances are of getting difficult tasks. The maximum number of points you can get for a task is 135, with relay tasks being the exception—they can earn a co-op up to 145 points.

How do relay tasks work?

A relay task can appear on any co-op’s board during a seasonal regatta and will stay there while it’s being completed. Co-op members take turns completing the relay task. Each co-op member can only complete this task once.

As soon as the first player starts the relay task, the countdown begins. You can tell who’s currently working on the task by the profile picture that is shown on it. Once the co-op member has completed the task, it becomes available again. Remember that the countdown is the same for everyone who wants to complete the task, so complete it as quickly as you can to make sure more members of your co-op get a chance to complete it. The relay task disappears from the board once the time runs out.

Relay tasks are available to all co-ops regardless of their number of participants. The initial reward is 130 points, but it increases as the relay task gets completed:
1. The first player gets 130 regatta points.
2. The second gets 135 points.
3. The third, 140 points.
4. The fourth and subsequent members who complete the task get 145 points.

You can reserve this task when it isn’t being completed by other players.

The relay task can be dumped by:
– leaders, co-leaders, and elders when the task isn’t being completed.
– anyone who is in the process of completing it. Dumping this task while it’s being completed will remove the task from the board and end the relay.

What are regatta leagues? What kinds of leagues are there?

Leagues show the progress your co-op is making in seasonal regattas. Co-ops only compete with co-ops from the same league. These groups are formed at the start of each season. Your co-op can be promoted or demoted between leagues based on your regatta results according to the following rules:
– Co-ops that finish in the top three and collect at least one chest are promoted to the next higher league.
– Co-ops that finish in the bottom three or fail to collect at least one chest are demoted to the next lower league.
– The rest of the co-ops that collect at least one chest stay in the same league.

The league your co-op is in determines the number of tasks you can complete and the number of chests you can collect:
– Wooden League — 7 tasks, 5 chests.
– Copper League — 9 tasks, 6 chests.
– Steel League — 11 tasks, 7 chests.
– Silver League — 13 tasks, 8 chests.
– Golden League — 15 tasks, 9 chests.

Are tasks more difficult in higher leagues?

Regatta tasks can be of easy, medium, or hard levels. The harder a task is, the more points you get for completing it. Each league has all kinds of tasks, but the chance of getting a harder task grows accordingly with the league.

How do I reserve tasks during seasonal regattas?

Task reservation settings can be found in the co-op editing window. Here, leaders and co-leaders can give other players the right to reserve tasks.

To reserve a task, tap the yellow button next to the Start button in the task description. An exclamation mark will appear on the reserved task’s icon and will be visible to all co-op members. The reservation will be in effect for a limited time. To see how much time is left in a reservation, go to the task’s description and tap on the picture of the player who made the reservation. The reservation is lifted when the time is up.

READ:  Township: Building and expansions

You can only reserve one task at a time, but you can change the reservation to a different task, in which case the previous reservation will be automatically canceled. Remember that if you cancel your task reservation or if the reservation time expires, there is a waiting period before you can make another reservation.

Reserved tasks can be deleted by leaders, co-leaders, and elders. The reservation can also be changed by players who have been given the right to do so.

What regatta tasks are there during events?

There are several types of temporary tasks:
– produce temporary goods that are available at factories during events.
– produce event resources at temporary factories or workshops located opposite the Event Center.
– do repetitive actions in events such as feeding characters, catching fish, flying a certain distance, etc.
– earn a certain amount of event points.
– beat a certain number of levels in mini-games.

How are regatta opponents selected?

Every seasonal race in each league is made up of 15 co-ops with the same amount of members with their Participate in Regatta status on.

If you join a co-op or activate the Participate in Regatta setting after the start of a race, you won’t be able to complete tasks and help your co-op race. This is true for all leagues and co-ops so that it won’t bring unfair advantage to some co-ops. Don’t worry—this limit is only in effect until the start of the next regatta.

Can I refuse completing a certain task?

Of course! Simply pick the task you want to dump and tap the trash icon.

Keep in mind that you can dump tasks during seasonal regattas in two different situations:
1. You’ve already picked a task, but now you want to dump it. If you dump it, the task is still counted as used and is subtracted from your task quota. You can find the list of completed and dumped tasks in the Task Journal located in the Tasks tab of the regatta window.
2. You haven’t picked the task, and it’s displayed in the task list in the Tasks tab. You can only dump tasks from the task list if you’re a Leader, Co-leader, or Elder. In this case, the task quota available for each participant remains unchanged.

Interseasonal regattas have the following rules for dumping tasks:
1. You can dump any task you’ve accepted regardless of your rank, but you’ll lose the task progress. There is a waiting period if you want to choose the task again—however, this does not apply to other co-op members who can choose the task immediately.
2. Co-op leaders, co-leaders, and elders can remove the chests no one is working on. If at least one of the chest tasks has been picked, only leaders and co-leaders can remove the chest.

How do I win seasonal regattas?

The seasonal regatta leader is the co-op with the highest score. Co-op members need to complete as many tasks as possible to collect chests in order to beat other co-ops. Every chest your co-op collects earns each racing member a reward.

You get extra rewards if your co-op makes it into the top three!

IMPORTANT NOTE: if multiple co-ops finish in a tie, the co-op that completed the tasks the fastest wins. The clock starts at the same time as the regatta.

How do co-ops get into higher leagues?

Every co-op starts its regatta adventure in the Wooden League. Based on its regatta results, your co-op can be moved between leagues according to the following rules:
– Co-ops that finish in the top three and collect at least one chest are promoted to the next higher league.
– Co-ops that finish in the bottom three or fail to collect at least one chest are demoted to the next lower league.
– Co-ops that finish in the middle (4th–12th place) and collect at least one chest stay in the same league.

How do I claim rewards for participating in a regatta?

You can collect your rewards after the regatta finishes. Tap the chest in the bottom-right corner of the Tasks tab to open the Rewards window. It will display open chests that your co-op earned during the race and which you can now collect. Tap the screen to collect your reward. This must be done before the next regatta ends.

There are four types of chests: wooden, iron, golden, and precious.

The higher the league, the better your chances are of getting the most valuable chests during seasonal regattas.

You can get the most valuable chests during interseasonal regattas by completing the tasks they contain.

IMPORTANT: if you leave your co-op before the regatta finishes, you will lose the chests you’ve received. That is why we recommend that you switch co-ops during the one-day break between regattas.

Apart from chests, you can get other rewards depending on the regatta type:
– you can collect the reward for your co-op’s race position in seasonal regattas in the Race tab;
– you can collect the rewards for reaching co-op goals during interseasonal regattas in the Co-op goals tab.

Why am I not able to participate in regattas?

There are two most common reasons.

1. You have missed the start of a seasonal race. If you either joined a co-op or checked off Take part in seasonal regatta after the regatta had already begun, you can follow your co-op’s progress in the regatta, but you can’t complete tasks.

Co-ops competing against each other are grouped together based on their size. It wouldn’t be fair to give an advantage to any co-op by allowing them to add a new member to the race. There’s a one-day break between regattas that gives you time to change co-ops.

KEEP IN MIND: if you leave your co-op before the end of a regatta, you won’t be able to claim rewards from the race.

2. A co-op leader or a co-leader has restricted you from participating in the current or upcoming regatta, depending on whether a regatta was in progress when the restriction was imposed or not. If that happens, you’ll get a notification in the co-op chat. If you wish to take part in the next seasonal regatta, check off the corresponding point in Settings. You can still take part in the next interseasonal regatta regardless of your status.

Do I have to participate in seasonal regattas?

Participation in seasonal regattas is up to you, but by default, your participation is activated. You can always change your settings if you decide you’re not in the racing mood:
1. Open Settings by tapping the gear icon in the top-left corner of the screen
2. Go to Additional settings and uncheck Take part in seasonal regatta

IMPORTANT NOTE! If all the co-op members opt out of an ongoing seasonal regatta or if your co-op is late for the race, it is demoted to the next lower league.

If you change your mind and decide to rejoin the race, you’ll need to do one of the following:
– check off Take part in seasonal regatta in the additional settings menu.
– tap the Pier and then tap the Take part in seasonal regatta button in the first tab of the window that opens.

Remember that you can take part in interseasonal regattas regardless of what your racing status is set to.

What are tokens and how do I use them?

Tokens are a special currency you can get by completing seasonal regatta tasks. Go for complicated and season-themed tasks to earn more of them. Participating co-op members also get tokens once the seasonal race is over—the better the co-op finishes, the bigger the reward.

You need tokens to make purchases at the Yacht Club, which is the store for regatta participants. Tokens don’t expire, and players can spend them whenever they want after the season is over, but the maximum amount of tokens is capped at 600.

The store is located next to the Pier. You can access it by tapping the ship icon in the Season tab as well.

Where can I see the progress and results of seasonal regattas?

The Race tab shows how the current seasonal regatta is progressing. There, you can find the list of all participating co-ops ranked by their current score. Just look for your co-op’s badge to find it. Next to your yacht, you can see how many points your co-op has earned in the current seasonal regatta.

There’s a number of checkpoints, or chests, along the way, and you collect them when you earn a certain number of points. Chests are exchanged for rewards at the end of the race.

You can check your personal progress in the current regatta by tapping Statistics in the Tasks tab.

To see your co-op’s statistics, go to the Season tab and tap the icon in the upper-left corner of the map. Keep in mind that during the interseasonal regatta you’ll see the results of the previous competition.

What is the seasonal regatta Leaderboard?

The Regional Leaderboard only shows the co-ops in the region you’ve selected. The Global Leaderboard, however, shows the best co-ops worldwide. The co-ops whose season results give them the highest Global Leaderboard positions get special prizes.

In order to get on the leaderboards, your co-op must be in the Golden League. Co-ops remain on leaderboards until the end of the season even if they are demoted to a lower league.

Leaderboards are calculated using the results of the first seasonal regatta. Then, from the second week, the points a co-op earns during its two most successful regattas of the season are used.

Here’s how scores are calculated: bonus points for race position and co-op size are added to the co-op’s average score, while penalty points are deducted for dumped tasks.
– The average score is the total co-op score for the previous seasonal regatta divided by the number of members who participated in it.
– The bonus for co-op size is based on the maximum number of regatta participants in your co-op. The more members there are, the bigger the bonus is.
– The bonus for race position means that the higher your position in the regatta, the more points you get.
– The penalty for dumped tasks is based on the number of tasks dumped from the common task board in the previous seasonal regatta divided by the number of co-op participants in that race.

If members get kicked out of their co-op during a race, the points they earned still count toward the co-op’s total score.

Leaderboards are reset at the beginning of each new season.

How do I make sure that I don’t miss seasonal regattas?

Your co-op enters a regatta as soon as any one of its members confirms their participation (by ticking the box next to Participate in Regatta in Additional settings) and picks a task at least five hours before the regatta finish time.

If nobody from your co-op picks a task at least five hours before the race ends, the regatta task list is blocked for all members, and you are no longer able to join.

ATTENTION! Co-ops that are late for seasonal races are automatically demoted to the next lower league.

What do I do during interseasonal regattas?

Tap the Pier to open the regatta window. The interseasonal regatta window has the following tabs:
1. Tasks. Here, players can pick a chest to complete the three tasks it contains either by themselves or with the help of other co-op members. You can dump the task you’ve picked by tapping the trash icon. By doing so, you’ll lose the task progress and won’t be able to pick it again right away. This waiting period does not apply to other co-op members.
2. Co-op Goals. This tab shows your co-op progress in completing co-op goals. You help your co-op move forward by completing tasks. All co-op members get rewards for each of the five goals your co-op achieves.
3. Season. This tab shows the leaders of the previous seasonal regatta as well as a sneak peek of the upcoming season. You can tap the icon in the upper-left corner to see your co-op’s statistics.

You can collect the rewards your co-op gets for reaching co-op goals in the Co-op Goals tab. A message in the co-op chat will notify you when this is possible.

The chest rewards you earn during an interseasonal regatta can be collected once it’s over. Simply go to the Tasks tab and tap the chest icon in the bottom-right corner.

It’s important you collect your rewards before the end of the next regatta—otherwise, you’ll lose them.

What are the key features of interseasonal regattas?

Interseasonal regattas aren’t competitions, so your co-op’s progress doesn’t affect your league. You can join regattas any time after they start.

Complete tasks to earn chest rewards as well as co-op goal rewards.

Just pick a chest and then tap Start next to the task you’d like to complete in the pop-up window. Most tasks are time-sensitive. You can complete them by yourself or with the help of other co-op members, in which case all the players working on the tasks get the chest rewards. You can pick up to nine chests during each regatta.

Co-op leaders, co-leaders, and elders can dump chests no one is working on. If at least one chest task has been picked, only leaders and co-leaders can dump that chest. It takes 60 minutes for new chests to appear.

You can dump task you picked by tapping the trash icon, though you’ll lose your task progress and won’t be able to pick it again right away. That waiting period does not apply to other co-op members, however.

Once you’ve picked all the chests available to you, help fellow co-op members complete tasks and get closer to reaching your co-op goals.

Can a cheating co-op member impact regatta results?

Your co-op’s seasonal regatta progress suffers when members of your co-op are caught cheating.

When our system detects a cheater and blocks their account, they stay in the co-op but can’t continue racing. The following then occurs:
– The points earned by the cheating member are deducted from the co-op’s seasonal regatta score.
– Competing co-ops will then enjoy a numerical advantage, as the cheater’s co-op is forced to continue racing with one fewer participant.

It’s important to take this into consideration when creating a co-op and accepting new members. It’s better to avoid suspicious players.
