- Collect 200 Element Shards (Event lasts for 2 days)
- Score 30,000 points in the Minecart Game (Event lasts for 2 days)
Social events starts every week and last until the end of the week.
Social events were regional, but after about October 2015 the social and special events have become "group competitions" : players all over the world are all separated into groups of 5000, making the event rankings more reasonable.
The social event goal can be one of the following:
- Total points earned from the crystal mine mini-game
- Total points earned from the Equestria Girls mini-game
- Total element shards earned from the game
- Total shards earned from the crystal mine mini-game
- Total Parasprites removed
As the picture shows (ranks are outdated), the prizes depends on your rating. There're only three kinds of prizes offered to 1-150, 151-350 and 351-750 places respectively. The great prizes can be a pony but if you already have that pony you get 12 instead. When the event time is up, the prize will be shown beside the menu automatically (when no bug occurs).
The groups are determined by the time you join the event by hitting the "Participate" button. The first group (players who join the event in the first 12 hours) is the most competitive, so waiting for a later group to start can give you a better chance of winning the top pony prize. Other advantages include raising your Mane Six to 5 stars and having at least 2 friends who are good at dancing (Equestria Girls mini-game), upgrading the mine cart power-ups and getting mine cart bonus costumes from the Pony Editor, and of course, having plenty of bits, gems, and free time.
The special event is always a special edition of the sky-clearing game, with parasprites providing points instead of bits, and an extra feature of bonus time clocks. To be able to play the event game, a player needs three "Magic bolts". A player's inventory can hold up to ten bolts. The magic bolts renew every five minutes, or you can purchase them for 3 gems each.
The event goal is to earn as many points as you can. There are blue, magenta and yellow parasprites which can yield 1, 2, 3 or 1, 3, 5 points respectively, depending on the game difficulty (easiest preset with lots of parasprites and few storm clouds gives the lower amount of points). As a pony flies and catches the sprites, the points increase. Catching a yellow clock provides a time bonus of nine additional seconds to the original 45 seconds that a player starts with. Catching five clouds fills a meter causing the pony to speed up (the sonic rainboom), collecting points and clocks in its path, but immune to clouds and Shadowbolts. The clocks are spaced about ten seconds apart, and start appearing at 22 seconds. The special events usually last for three days. For additional "How to Play" instuctions, refer to the standard Clear the Skies mini-game information.
In addition, there's always a featured pony which can score additional bonus points, depending on his/her star experience. Each star (up to five) gives 10% bonus points. The featured pony is often the previous social event prize. If you have the bonus pony, he/she flies in the event, regardless of star level. If you do not have the bonus pony, Twilight clears the skies instead, but does not earn a bonus. Unless you have the bonus pony and have raised him/her to at least 3 stars, it is very difficult to win the top pony prize.
In update 3.7, special events were no longer available at the time and was removed along with Clear the Skies. The energy systems was also removed as well as special events but later reappeared in update 4.0.
Since update 4.0, points now accumulate instead of recording your best score. For example if a player scores 1200 points and later earn 300 points, they will add up towards your final score (1500 points) instead of recording the best score throughout the event (1200 points).
