New Online Game: Howrse Cup

Published by at 5:07 pm under News

While the Summer Olympics are happening in London this year, Howrse decided to celebrate with a whole new online game – the Howrse Cup starting July 24th. It’s a completely new game that is not connected to any other Howrse account in any way; you’ll have to register for a new account. It will last for seven months, uniting¬†German, Russian, Polish, Czech, US and French users, as they strategize by joining teams, challenging others for prizes, and probably using a lot of passes to race their way to the top. After a few months, 25 people will fight in the championships. Those 25 players are decided by who has the most diamonds which are earned from placing in competitions with their trained horses and from challenging others. There’s also a bonus that can be found – the Cup Bonus – which guarantees a spot in the championship.

This isn’t the same as Howrse – BM items were removed and training can be done much quicker. Aging points can be found by doing actions with your horses and around the site, but they must be bought with passes if you need more. Rankings are updated every 15 minutes and you cannot see the skills/training of other horses. I suggest to read the forum posts below and all their comments. I’m waiting for the official release to type up a page and create a new spot on the website for it.

500 random players were chosen to go on the beta version to test it and experience it for themselves and even post about it. I’ve chatted with three beta testers to ask if I could post what they found while playing on the new site. So far, Howrse user Nerruse and Katiekate have responded.

    i was thinking.. (wauw rare!).. and most people know habbo hotel (a game.. don’t know if it’s only dutch.. i don’t play it myself).. but… there are made… fake-servers. for habbo you have to pay for almost everything. so they made… like funnyhotel.com and doxhotel.com. there you can buy almost limited. why has no-one copied howrse? and made passes, like on howrse cup. you’ll get 1 000. and 10 000 000 equus. that would be major! if some-one had done this. or is doing this. or is planning to do this. or has fount a site like this. PLEASE TELL ME THE HOST NAME!

    a despaired girl who wants to breed non-stop but does not have a job to buy passes :/

    @chocoshettie: Passes aren’t necessary on Howrse. Yes they will certainly speed up game play, but it’s not necessary for your game! Participate in promotions, like the Great Challenge, to earn Black Market items that you’d otherwise have to purchase with passes. You can also age a mortal horse over 30 years to receive a pass, once it’s sent to heaven.
