For some reason in my troop training, the Hog Rider has a green ribbon across the bottom and is only 6 dark elixir. Why is this? Did I accidentally boost the barracks? It doesn't look like it. Is there a sale going on?

It is part of the Events part of the game enter image description here.


Clash Of Clans Hog Rider Event

Did someone say Hog Rider?


The Clash of Clans Hog Rider event offers a very large discount to train Hog Riders. The rewards after completing the challenge are gems and experience. All you need to do is win a number of multiplayer battles.

During these battles, there is a specified number of Hog Riders to be used. The entire Hog Rider event only lasts two days or 48 hours. You could find the details in the Events tab.

Happy Clashing!

  • Why did someone downvote this? Its a perfect explanation. Upvoted

    This reads like an advertisement. Are you quoting something?

    No one line in particular, it just kinda sounds like the sort of text you'd see on an announcement/advertisement. Perhaps it's the 'Did someone say Hog Rider' and 'Happy Clashing' parts

    I just googled the majority of the text, and most of it seems to have come from this article: itechpost.com/articles/67086/20161220/…. if you're going to quote parts wholesale, you need to provide attribution.

    Generally, complaining about down votes makes more happen. If nobody left a reason, then the down vote tooltip is a good assumption to make. That said, if you wholesale delete content that has down votes, the system will quickly prevent you from asking or answering anything ever again. Use at your own risk.

There is a new "Events" tab that was added in the new update. As part of this update, the first event they are doing centers around the hog riders. It significantly reduces the training costs for them because the event requires you to use a certain amount in 3 multiplayer battles. If you do, you are rewarded 300xp and 30 gems (which is great because the next event coming up is a 1 gem collector boost :D).
