Every 24 hours there is a different element-based event. The type of event can be determined by the element name at the top of the event screen, the flags flying outside the building, or the landscape inside the Colosseum. The rotation of events is as follows:
To choose a dragon to compete, touch the Colosseum to view the event screen. At the top of the screen is the event type.
Remember, after placing a dragon in the Colosseum it cannot be removed for 24 hours and the event cannot be sped up using gems or Kairos. The dragon in the Colosseum does not earn income in its habitat during the event, although first place medals award the amount of income the dragon would have earned.
Trophies are awarded based on your dragon's "performance".
Nothing guarantees a gold trophy. A dragon may receive a gold trophy one week, and only a silver trophy in the same event the next week.
On the Colosseum "Trophies" button, you can view past events: which dragon participated, the date and time of the event, and the award type. This is very helpful as it shows which Game Center achievements you have left. However, if a higher-ranking trophy was acquired, then only the most recent dragon that obtained that same-ranking trophy (or higher if a silver was acquired) would be recorded. For example, if a dragon acquired a gold trophy for one element for one day and acquired a silver trophy for that same element on a later day, only the date when a dragon acquired a gold trophy would be recorded.
