    @burnykun - Your steps were very helpful. Thank you!

  • zapdosuk August 28, 2020

    yeah no hotfix yet still not working

  • kactuzz August 28, 2020

    Same problem

    • kactuzz August 29, 2020

      burnykun's solution worked, you have to click on "Leave Map" instead of "Return to Map"

  • grimmax-at-2 August 27, 2020

    Same problem rewards after winning -.-

    Oh c'mon not again such a trash event. Just causing problems and errors and the whole stuff looks ridiculous... Really hate this "content". Pls concentrate on the real problems of the game. Most of them weren't solved with DE. Make people rejoin games or at least replace them with the KI.

  • burnykun August 27, 2020

    Here is were I found the answer:

    My steps:

    1.- Get into the Summer World Tour Event
    2.- Clic on "Lets go" in the event with Berebers, Ethiopians OR Malies
    3.- Select if you want to play multiplayer or Standard Game (I got it with Standard Game)
    4.- Here is the solution, when the game finishes, you have to clic "Leave Map", after this you get the reward.

    If you clic "Return to map", you didn't get it.

    • onox16 August 29, 2020

      This is the answer I was looking for days! Wasted so much time... Thanks!

    • raphael-foscarini August 28, 2020

    I also had the unlock problem. I was able to unlock by playing all 3 civs and winning on the same day. So hopefully you can do the same.

    • burnykun August 27, 2020

      I already did it, but the result was the same, any reward.

  • burnykun August 27, 2020

    I have the same problem, I won a game with many times and didn't get the reward.
