Cook up Thanksgiving for the EBA Monkeys 


Hi Breakers!

It's time to give thanks for all things. And what says "Thank you for being in my life" better than a nice meal? The Pilgrim Monkey is on hand to ensure that the bounty of the fall is harvested, to prepare an epic feast for all the monkeys to enjoy. Help him prepare the Thanksgiving meal by decorating the table and filling it with delicious food stuffs.

Collect wild turkeys to earn trophy room decorations, complete the Challenge Egg challenges for sweet delights, or check out the available Extras in the Pilgrim Monkey's store!

General Event details:

- Collect 18 different types of supplies to prepare for a feast, in ever increasing amounts.

- You'll need to find…
…4 preparation items to advance from the Bronze stage to the Silver stage,

…4 preparation items to advance from the Silver stage to the Gold stage,

…12 preparation items at the Gold stage, as well as having won all 12 prizes to earn the Thanksgiving Event Trophy!

How the Event works:

You get to use the Multiplier buff! Here's how it works:
  • The daily multiplier buff increases each time you feed the Pilgrim Monkey his Thanksgiving Event Tokens, up to a buff of 8x:
    • Feed the monkey once, increase the buff to 2x,
    • Feed the monkey twice, increase the buff to 4x,
    • Feed the monkey three times, the buff increases to 8x - additional feedings past this will not increase the multiplier any further, it will remain capped at 8x
    • If you merely activate the monkey, but do not feed him, the buff will not increase. You must feed the Pilgrim Monkey for the buff to increase.
  • The permanent Base x2 buff only applies to preparation item wins.
    • The graphic for the buff itself will not change, by placing your cursor over the buff icon on the right side of the breaking screen, you can see your buff has leveled up to.
    • All normal buffs are available.
  • The base multiplier will reset every day at Midnight PST.


Let's break down the Pilgrim Monkey's special event stage:



From the Pilgrim Monkey's Special Event Screen, you can:
  • Track how much time is left until the event ends,
  • Visually watch the feast table become crowded with tasty goodness!
  • See your progress towards your current preparation items,
  • See the current cost of the items which you are working towards,
  • Keep count of your Wild Turkey Achievement progression!
  • Easily track your progress towards preparation completed, Prizes collected (Click the Prize button to see which ones you've earned/are missing), Progression Ribbons and the Thanksgiving Trophy!


Rewards and Extras!:



Ribbons:
3 successive ribbons for progression, which permanently add additional +5, +10 or +15 hammers respectively.

Trophy: Can be displayed in a Trophy Room.
Ribbon and Trophy (if earned) are awarded after the event finishes on November 27, 2015. The highest ribbon earned will be awarded.


Wild Turkey Achievement:



As you break eggs, wild turkeys appear and wander around the screen. Gently tap the turkey before it's gone! The turkey will try to escape, but one painless tap and magically you have a fragrant, perfectly cooked turkey! At the 1st, 50th and 250th turkey found, you will unlock special decorations for your trophy room. Turkeys will continue to appear after you have earned the last achievement, but you can continue to hit them.

It's Time for Some Intrigue in EBA! 


Greetings Breakers!

The names Kong....George Kong. A debonair and dashing monkey with superb skills and a knack for getting in, and out, of trouble. This handsome primate is the Challenge Fairy's favourite movie spy, so she's put together the all-new Agent 009 Burst Event to celebrate everything about him!

For the duration of the event, special challenge eggs will temporarily replace all normal challenge eggs, and the eggs will appear at a higher than usual rate. Players can earn 12 event prizes of various Spy themed items from cashing in Event Tokens with the Challenge Fairy Monkey.



For the toughest of tough challenges, there are 3 awesome prizes!

The Spy Trillby adds more Multipliers!
The Golden Gun Hammer adds more Multipliers!
The Martini Set makes any trophy room ready for a visit from Agent 009!

Talk about it on the forums!

The event will run until Wednesday, November 11th at Noon PST!

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.

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

  • 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.
