Chat with Erika about EBA! 
Tags: eba, community.

Hi Breakers!

Thank you for bearing with us during the growing pains of releasing Crusaders. As it was an unexpectedly a massive success which created many chat rooms and communities to keep track of, our community management efforts have been strained.

We realise that part of your enjoyment of Egg Breaker is seeing us at Codename in chat and we know that this hasn't been happening as much as we would like. So, we're going to try something new.

Instead of Erika spending time in chat at unannounced points throughout the week, we'll schedule a specific time each week for her to spend an hour in Facebook chat for Egg Breaker Adventures, answering your questions directly (assuming the information is available, of course). This way the community will know exactly when they can connect with Erika in chat.

If you can't be online to talk to her live during those times, you can still always post questions and suggestions on the Codename forums, and request technical support through the ticket system, as usual.

Starting the week of April 12th, Erika will be in Facebook chat for Egg Breaker Adventures every Thursday, 11 am - Noon Pacific Time.

EBA Volunteer Chat Moderators 


Love Egg Breaker Adventures? Hang out in chat? Then consider becoming a Volunteer Chat mod!

Moderator Application FAQ

If you would like to become a moderator, help the community, and make a difference in people's lives, you are in the right place!

Minimum Requirements

You must meet the following criteria to apply for moderator:
  • You must be 18 or older.
  • An account that has been active for 6 or more months.
  • Active community participation (forum posts, chat, etc.) of helpful and considerate nature.
  • No history of account abuse.
Our Expectations when considering an applicant:
  • You DO NOT need to be an expert on our games, or finished available content to be considered for a Moderation position.
  • We DO expect that you will keep up to date with content, availing of yourself of the multiple sources of information (Blog, Forums, Wiki where applicable)

Chat Moderator

Chat moderators interface real-time with community members via our in-game chats. As a chat moderator you:
  • Must move quickly, and be able to respond in short, succinct phrasing to answer a player's question.
  • Must not only be able to keep up with the conversation, but be attentive to multiple conversation threads at once - getting players to stop chatting for even a moment is nearly impossible.
  • Must anticipate how their tone will be received - you cannot edit what you say in chat, once it is out there, players will NOT hesitate to copy and paste your exact answers back to you, to take out of context what you say.
  • Must assume every question in chat is asked legitimately. Sarcasm in chat is never received the way it's intended. Drop it from your vocabulary entirely (no matter how SORELY you are tempted), and you'll miss less questions that way.

Application Information

This is what you will need to know to successfully complete an application and increase your chances of becoming a moderator in one of our games.

The Rules of Applying for Moderation:
  • Do NOT email us asking to be a mod if there are no openings listed.
  • Do NOT email us asking how to become a mod (we expect that you have read this article.)
  • Do NOT send multiple emails requesting to be a moderator.
  • Do NOT start a forum thread about why you should be a moderator.
  • Do NOT spam or promote inappropriate behaviour if your application is denied.
  • DO show maturity with your in-game actions and posts. Be considerate of others, try to help new players. (Hint, these will be your primary activities if you are selected for Moderation training.)
  • DO continue to work on your interpersonal skills and show maturity within the community. Grow your account and your in-game persona regardless if your application is accepted or denied.


Please complete the entire form and be as honest as possible. If we choose to proceed with your application, you will be contacted via email with further instructions.

Required Reading

A clear understanding of the following is REQUIRED*.

Chat & Forum Guidelines: http://codenameentertainment.com/?page=conduct
Privacy Policy: http://codenameentertainment.com/?page=privacy

* Additional resources may be made available to the Moderators upon application acceptance.

The Responsibilities

As a Codename Chat Moderator, you will be expected to:
  • guide the community in acceptable behaviours and teach new players the game.
  • Report any major bugs, harmful community trends or other emergencies directly to the Community Manager.
  • Reports of any action taken while you are moderating.
  • When you are playing the game, you are always a moderator. By becoming a moderator you sacrifice the option to play the game as only a player.
  • Respond to player questions and explain why a player was silenced through private messaging.
  • Report any inappropriate names or permanent bans that are needed to Support.

The Perks

As a CNE moderator, you will have the following perks and abilities:
  • Text in chat will appear as a different colour, to help regular players identify your answers.
  • Contact support to request bans for players violating our Rules of Conduct for Chat.
  • You will be a trusted part of the community, in contact with the community and development team.

First Ever Egg Breaker Adventures Player Council 


Hi Breakers!

Today I’m letting you know that we are now accepting applications for our first-ever player council for Egg Breaker Adventures!

The EBA Player Council will be a group of 6 to 10 EBA players that represent various aspects of the game with the passion and knowledge to talk directly with us at Codename Entertainment.

We are looking for players who are willing and able to give us meaningful feedback on different areas of the game and their thoughts on potential upcoming features.

As a part of the EBA Player Council, you will be part of a team that helps keeps Egg Breaker Adventures a continually exciting and enjoyable experience for all players.

Now for the details about what the being part of the EBA Player Council entails. Please read carefully and thoroughly to see if this opportunity is right for you.
  • The Council will directly interact with Erika via Skype for the quarterly meetings. As such, it is an absolute requirement that you are willing to install and work with us on Skype.

  • All Council members are required to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement form.

  • EBA Council members will be asked for at least a 12 month commitment to the community and the Council. We understand that real life comes up and things occur, but we’re seeking individuals who are in it for the long haul and want to be committed to this 100%.

  • While we greatly appreciate the time and feedback from Council members this is strictly a volunteer position.

  • This is for personal applications only. We will not be accepting nominations or applications on behalf of another player.

We expect there to be a large volume of applicants for this opportunity, and will read through all of them. Our goal is to pick out the players who best represent various gameplay styles in Egg Breaker Adventures.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please let us know on the forums. This is an exciting and very important time for Egg Breaker Adventures, and we hope you will be a part of it.

The cut-off time for applications will be 11:59 PM Pacific Daylight Time Monday June 22nd.
