An presumably the same tasks as always: deploy bazookas in winning battles, train barrack troops, heal your troops, send expeditions, gather from fruit trees, blah blah blah.
I get that the generic nature is doable for ALL ages but a little variety or out-the-box-thinking will be very welcome. Something different to break the monotony of things we do regularly with each & every battle.
Any plans to mix things up in the future, @Harlems369th ??

The team has certainly seen your feedback, but I have no news currently on any updates to event goals.

Well, I like doable tasks - especially when 3 events take place in parallel and the total volume of all tasks is so widely distributed over several windows. Gathering trees and sending expeditions are sometimes the tough tasks when the workers are busy for 14 days, but the event requires the tasks to be completed within a week.
If you really want a change from your daily routine, then you can think of something and do it yourself. Try out different troop compositions and so on on your own; why do you need an incentive for that?
Actually no, I don't need an incentive - I'm actually trying 2 new troop combos as we speak - but then when the events come on I revert to my 'go to' combo of bazookas and/or helis and/or HTs because that's what these events seem to call for all the time.
Surely the question needs to be asked: why are the devs enticing us to use the same troops each & every time??

While that may be the case for you, in the Enlightenment age I get called to use basically ALL of my available troops in event goals.

Really? So are each troop called for in the current event like Infantry or Tanks or raiders or gatling guns or biplanes? Are there certain troops which are favoured more often than others ?
Care to give a run down of the troops selected in the current events ?

Right now all they want is infantry and commandos, but usually they also want cannons, raiders, and tanks too.

So not all troops in the one week of events then. (as I suspected).
Even so, it seems like lower ages are given a wider variety of troop choices in ongoing events - lucky you. :)

ps: on a different note - can you stop wasting money on pointless space flights and do something about world hunger??

The event taks could include

- crafting artefact = no worker needed ;and why not swapping artefact ( --> teach players to hide museum!)
- recruiting councelor = no worker needed ; merging councils
- recruiting coalition = no worker needed ; but needs to be generic ( cause players cannot adapt coal they pick for event! so "recruti 2 coalitions")
- make a friendly challenge
- offer your MP base to friendly challenge / offer your war base to friendly challenge

Blessings tasks ( place x blessings) have the same logic and are very nice.
Probably more idea to have!!
