Game Tip Event Background[]

Archbears held the Third Year Anniversary Tip Event from November 9th - November 18th 2018.[1] There was a character limit of 60 characters (including spaces), and multiple submissions were allowed. Within the submission form, each tip was given a Category (Character, Gameplay, System, Miscellaneous) and a target audience (Mouse-Rabbit, Horse-Elephant, Fox-Wolf, Above Lion).

The winners of the contest were announced on November 26th 2018. [2] 120 Game Tips were chosen in total. Some users had multiple tips selected. The winners were awarded 300 Gems.

The Game Tips were added to the game on December 19th 2018. The tips were initially displayed with the author's in-game name for 1 patch period; on January 16th 2019, the authors' names were removed from the system.

Game Tips are sorted by the author's in-game name (at time of submission), as listed in the winners announcement. For Game Tips originally written in a language other than English, the text shown is the in-game, official translation of the Game Tip.
