State of Survival: Survival of the Fittest – Event guide (now with a video-guide!)

Survival of the Fittest is a bi-weekly event with different objectives on each day. In this guide, I will try to share some tips about maximizing your points while investing your resources smartly. The guide is intended both for F2P and P2P players.

Version history:
1.2 - 28/09/2020 - Major changes due to new T4/T5 Heroes released.
1.1 - 14/09/2020 - Updates to the Tier 1 (Nikola) & Tier 4 (Jarrett), minor cosmetic changes;
1.0 - 06/07/2020 - Guide created.
Video guide

Depending on your state age and evolution (you start with Tier 1 heroes – i.e. Nikola, continue with Tier 2 – i.e. Wolfe and finally Tier 3 – i.e. Zoe) daily objectives might be slightly different. Make sure you look into the correct section to find objectives for your state.

Please remember one thing: the SoS developers hobby like to change daily objectives quite often (they’ve done that over 5 times for the past 2 months!). When you notice a mistake, kindly point it out in the comments and I will correct it ASAP. Thanks!

They have made tier 4 requirement for tier 2 event. We have wolfe frags as prizes in state 253, but reqs are tier 4. sigh. They need to leave gathering as an option, longer! greedy!

i think the troop reqs are tied to your base…? On 253 one base had 23.8M for final troop training level and other one had something like 12M. One has T8 the other T6 troops.
