The Valentine Event 2021 was a full event in Castle Cats that was added in version 2.16. It started on January 11, received a mid-event update on February 4, and ran through February 27.

The event introduced five new heroes: Demaires, Kate and Iridessa, who could be purchased with real money, and two cats who could be crafted in Alchemy. It also featured the return of all 15 previous Valentine cats.

The Lunar New Year mini-event began on February 12 and ran concurrently with the remainder of the Valentine event. It included the premiere of one new microtransaction cat, Jin Shu, and brought back all four previous Lunar New Year heroes.

New Guild Leader customization options were available in the Event Shop, as were one new and eight returning Hero Outfits. Previous Valentine items were available in the prize pool of the Event Box.

Event Content[]

Event Materials[]

While the event was live, rewards for event-specific, normal and battle quests at quest level 4 and above included chocolate hearts, red roses, and love letters, Valentine event materials that could be used to craft hero eggs and plushies and acquire new guild leader items. Valentine event materials could also be purchased as microtransactions in the Event Shop.

Bundle Cost VIP XP
2000 of each Valentine Material $14.99 USD +750
Event Pack:
  1000 of each Valentine Material,
  300 Gems and Julio
$9.99 USD +500
1000 of each Valentine Material $7.99 USD +400
500 of each Valentine Material $4.99 USD +250

As part of the Lunar New Year mini-event, lucky coin pendants were also available as quest rewards under the same conditions as the Valentine materials were. They could be used to craft Lunar New Year Alchemy heroes and to acquire rampaging oxen as guild leader companions.

The quest selection screen included a materials boost button offering the option to watch an ad and get double event materials from quest rewards for 30 minutes. Alternatively, purchasing a new premium hero for real money would double event materials from quest rewards and purchasing two or more microtransaction cats would triple them; these boosts lasted for the duration of the event and replaced the ad boost option. Both types of boosts applied to both Valentine and Lunar New Year materials.

Premium Heroes[]

The Event Shop offered three new Valentine heroes and one new and one returning Lunar New Year heroes as microtransaction purchases. All eight returning Valentine heroes and one returning Lunar New Year hero were available for gems.

Hero Eggs[]

Two new Valentine hero eggs could be crafted in Alchemy: the Hi-Tech Egg and the Dreamy Egg, both of which are Merge Alchemy eggs requiring four "sacrifice" cats each. Seven Alchemy cats from previous Valentine events and two from previous Lunar New Year events were also available.

Plushies[]

Note: Plushies can only be unlocked in guilds that have reached level 50.
The Valentine event included a new feature called "Ember", a Catanian version of the friend-matching app, Tinder. Players were shown a series of guild heroes and allied cats and could choose to like, superlike or dislike each one as they appeared. While dislikes were limitless, players got only 10 likes and one superlike daily. They were replenished at midnight (00:00) local time, and any existing likes and superlikes were lost. After using their daily allotments, players could get additional likes, five at a time, by watching an ad and additional superlikes for 25 gems each. The number of ads one could watch and the number of superlikes one could buy were apparently unlimited. Sometimes after liking or superliking, a match would be made with the liked cat. Players could then send "Sweets", a "Letter" or "Flowers" to their match, and a random amount (estimated to be between 5 and 25) of the corresponding event material would be taken from inventory. Three plushie recipes could be unlocked by sending a set amount of each kind of material. Another plushie became available after getting matched 100 times. The unlock trigger for the fifth plushie is uncertain but was probably based on giving a set number of likes and/or superlikes.

Event Box[]

The event box was shown in the final tab of the Event Shop window. It could be purchased for 50,000 coins every 2 days or for 60 gems otherwise at any time. Players got a free box at the start of the event as well. For each box purchase, a player received one of the nine prizes shown in the window, chosen at random. The prize pool, which was automatically refreshed every day at midnight local time, could also be reset by watching an ad, and then for successively higher gem prices starting at 5 gems.

The overall prize pool for the event box included the following:

Event Badges[]

Players could earn up to nine event badges by acquiring new event content and completing event quests. Prizes were awarded for obtaining 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 badges. Progress was tracked and prizes could be claimed in the Event Badges window accessed by tapping the red rose icon in the bottom left of the guild hall screen.

Requirements[]

Note: Real-money purchases are required to earn the Recruiter badge, which is fitting given that the reward for earning all badges, a 14-day VIP ticket, is useful only to players who have made at least $10 in real-money purchases.
