Last year we asked the community to spread the spirit of Christmas giving across all trucking territories in the Christmas Grand Giving event of 2019. The response was outstanding and we all did ourselves proud.
So, you may ask, what could top such a momentous effort? What is better than giving during Christmas time? The answer, this year, is not just giving, but giving wisely! In this way, we bring you the Christmas Wise Giving event of 2020 for Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator!
We are not only asking you, our #BestCommunityEver, to match the Grand Giving reputation that you earned last year, but we are further challenging everyone to beat it by giving wisely, and we are going to help you do this!
We have fresh trailer loads of much-needed gifts to deliver. It is going to be your kind heart and wise decisions that deliver them to who needs them most. For carrying out this noble deed your actions will be noted twofold, in that we will award Hearts to each city, based on the number of deliveries it gives, and Gifts to each city based on the number of deliveries it receives. It will be the sum total of Hearts and Gifts that will be counted towards the community goal.
The more a city gives or receives, the more Hearts or Gifts that city gets, with a maximum of 5 Heart icons and 5 Gift icons per city.
You’ll be able to track the community progress on World of Trucks or directly in the game using the updated External Contracts interface:
We’ll be jump-starting this great event with a special Christmas Wise Giving developer stream on the 17th of December, starting at 18:00 CET. It will be loads of fun, delivering jobs during the event, giving away steam keys, and we’ll provide more information on our social media sharing campaign, in which those who’ll share an image or video from their participation in the event, under the #XmasWiseGiving hashtag, will have a chance to win some cool gifts.
Wise Giving Event Rules:
Using External Contracts with a World of Trucks-connected profile in Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator, or both, the community goal is to get as many Hearts and Gifts as possible awarded to as many cities as possible across all trucking territories. Every city can achieve up to 5 Hearts and 5 Gifts!
For a city to gain 1 Heart the community must make 1000 deliveries from it, using the provided Gifts cargo.
For a city to gain 1 Gift the community must make 1000 deliveries to it, using the provided Gifts cargo.
Each tier of 350 Hearts/Gifts combined, will unlock a unique community reward.
For a Personal goal, complete at least 15 deliveries of Gifts cargo in either Euro Truck Simulator 2 or American Truck Simulator.
In quick summary, using Euro Truck Simulator and/or American Truck Simulator:
- To get a Personal goal: 15 deliveries from any cities in either game.
- To get a Heart for a city: 1000 deliveries from that particular city.
- To get a Gift for a city: 1000 deliveries to that particular city.
- Unlock a unique community reward: Every tier of 350 Hearts/Gifts combined, collected from both games.
Personal goal: Your contribution of 15 or more deliveries of Gifts cargo will gain you:
- A World of Trucks Achievement
- A Christmas-themed, Winter Blast, paint job to help you carry out more Gifts deliveries during the event.
Community goals: Each tier of 350 Hearts/Gifts combined, will unlock unique community rewards. There will be 6 tiers in total, so after 2100 Hearts/Gifts are achieved all community goals will be completed, so let’s do this!
Note: In order to qualify for any community reward, you must complete at least your personal goal in Euro Truck Simulator 2, American Truck Simulator or both. Each reward will be a Steam inventory item for both Euro Truck Simulator 2 and American Truck Simulator. Once completed, claim your reward on the Events page on your World of Trucks profile.
The event will be concluded on Sunday the 17th of January at 23:59 UTC.
