    [Event] Send us a Postcard!

    Dear players,

    Summer holidays are synonymous with taking road trips, visiting new cities and going camping, hiking or swimming, but hanging out with family and friends is also an enticing option. No matter how you decide to spend your time, The Settlers Online invites you to share everything with us by sending a handwritten P O S T C A R D to our Düsseldorf office!

    Greetings from The Settlers Online!

    We arrived on this splendid sunny island yesterday and now that we're settled in, we have some time to send you our warmest regards!
    The weather here is just right, the sun is shining - good thing we brought our sunglasses with us - and the sea is calm.
    Time to explore the harbor! See you guys in a week!


    Concept: Send a postcard to our Düsseldorf office. Make sure to write an actual text message and add your username and the language version you are playing on.

    Postcard: The postcard has to be a regular picture postcard or your very own hand-drawn postcard.

    Postal address:
    Blue Byte GmbH
    "The Settlers Online"
    Adlerstr. 74
    40211 Düsseldorf
    GERMANY
    Eligibility: Postcards received at our office between June 7th and July 7th August 31st.

    Accepted Languages:
    • English
    • German
    • French
    • Russian
    • Polish
    • Spanish
    *We would prefer English wherever possible.

    Rewards: The Blue Byte TSO team will reward inspiring postcards, depending on the image/drawing and text, with 500 gems. The top 3 postcards will be additionally rewarded with a very rare and special gift: a TSO cup, matching drip mats and some small surprises!

    *Limited to one prize per player






    We are looking forward to receiving your postcards!

    First Winner: Holzfaeller

    Dear players,

    Summer has ended, and so did the postcards flow in our mailbox. We immensely enjoyed reading them (and even deciphering the handwriting in some) as we marveled at the images and drawings you sent. Thank you for taking the time to share a bit of your holiday with The Settlers Online Community!

    Of course, a few postcards were quite out of the ordinary, and this was one of them. Sand and seashells from the Baltic Sea!


    When we first launched the community event, we surely didn't think of such unconventional "postcard"! So kudos to our very first winner, the German player Holzfaeller, for surprising everyone and thinking outside the box (or seashell can, for that matter )!

    Congratulations!

    Second Winner: sansgene

    Dear players,

    There's a bit of a story behind this postcard and it involves our French community: sansgene is well-known among his fellow settlers for his leathercrafting skills. His game colleagues have thus challenged him to create a leather postcard for our Community contest and send it over to our office. We're sure glad he accepted the challenge!


    It seems like seashells and multicolored parrots are in line with the general exotic island theme our players love! What's next?

    Congratulations for winning a special prize and keep up the good work!

    Third Winner: Kassain

    Dear players,

    The third winner of our Postcard Contest is the German player Kassain! Kassain is a devoted member of The Settlers Online community, never missing out a chance to enter a competition or event. This time he managed to inspire us with a kaleidoscopic view of the game.


    Click to view the full image


    Looking through his kaleidoscope, one might notice five distinct map areas: Witch Mountain, Golden Park, Frozen Island, Lost Lagoon and Arabian Sands... This must be the holiday island where Kassain's settlers spent their summer! What realm would you choose?

    Share your feedback here.


    Congratulations @Kassain on winning a special prize!

    Fourth Winner: Cedricsecu

    Dear players,

    The French player Cedricsecu sent us a folded handmade postcard embellished with in-game assets: his avatar and various other icons. Not only was his postcard visually delightful, but he also made sure to send it along with a charming and considerate message:




    Click on the image to see the unfolded postcard

    Greetings from Albir beach, Spain! The days run smoothly; lunch, strolling, dinner, siesta, pool, restaurants and having fun. In the end, it's nearly as tiring as working throughout the entire year.

    I hope the team had some time off as well and they didn't simply envy us, players, while gazing at our postcards. Here's a little handmade postcard (I didn't have any more money, I spent it all on partying ahahah)

    See you soon,
    Cedricsecu (Helios) France


    Note: As mentioned in the contest rules, the first three winners will be rewarded with special gifts: a TSO cup, matching drip mats and some small surprises. Unfortunately, our first winner did not reply to any of our messages to claim his reward; therefore, the gifts will be sent to the next in line!

    So, congratulations Cedricsecu for winning a special prize!

    Fifth Winner: Penelopa21

    Howdy, settler mates!


    Don't worry, this is not BB_Penelopa's multiaccount, but a Polish player sending her warm regards from Australia! It certainly took a while for the postcard to arrive to Germany, but it was all worth it!




    Thank you, penelopa21, for showing us how big Australia really is and for allowing us to picture that beautiful clear sky you have there (unlike the neverending gloomy weather here, in Düsseldorf! Boo!)


    Congratulations on winning 500 gems!
