What can I do with Seasonal tickets?

Every season will have lots of rare items for players to choose from. You must be strategic in how you allocate your free Seasonal tickets. Do you risk it and go for something extremely rare or secure some mid tier items?

This creates a fun emergent behaviour where players need to consider desires of the community and plan accordingly.

Each season will have a range of items that cater for different player types. A new player would likely go for a high supply decoration, whereas an OG player would go for the high-end items.

Seasonal tickets introduces a game of risk where you must strategically plan what items you want to strive for and predict what items other players will try to get.

Stella's Megastore

Each season will have multiple items available at Stella's Megastore, rotating every month.

Once you collect the required ingredients (resources and/or Seasonal tickets) you can craft an item.

Seasonal items are removed from the store at the end of the season.

Swap for SFL

You can also visit the Garbage Collector NPC and swap your Seasonal Tickets for Coins after the season is over.

How good!
