Kaines' Dinner of Doom Event 


To put on the best Thanksgiving dinner ever, Kaine's brilliant scientist mother decided to apply her vast scientific knowledge to her culinary skills but didn't stop to think if she should!

Now the Kaine mansion is awash with various foodstuffs intent on making the Crusaders choke on them. Or more to the point, choke the Crusaders to death.

The limited time Thanksgiving event features four exclusive objectives, a new formation and two new Crusaders to unlock.

RoboTurkey



Carrying on with tradition, there are two new Crusaders that can join your crusade, once your adventurers survive the objectives. The first of the two, RoboTurkey, won't make it easy though as he debuffs the Crusaders around him in the new pie formation, decreasing their max health by 50%.

Momma Kaine



Momma Kaine is the second of the two new Crusaders. However, separating her from her culinary experimentation and getting her clear of the mansion is going to be tough. As the Crusaders abduct her mid-experiment, she inadvertently freezes adjacent Crusaders every 10 seconds. The affected heroes will have their DPS reduced to 0 for 15 seconds, but thankfully their formation abilities are unharmed.

RoboTurkey shares a formation seat with Princess. His unique ability enables him to increase a random Crusader's DPS by 10% for 30 seconds by zapping them, while absorbing 25% of the DPS for himself.

Momma Kaine, who shares a formation seat with Khouri, is a nurturing sort as well as being a brilliant scientist. She has a number of unique abilities. First, she heals the Crusaders furthest away from her by 20% per second. She also has a ranged power where she can slow the furthest monster from the Crusaders by 25%, perfect for taking down bosses. Finally, she synergizes with RoboTurkey by increasing the DPS of zapped Crusaders by a further 50%.

New for this Event:

Once you've grabbed both RoboTurkey and Momma Kaine, you'll be able to start the Thanksgiving Free Play for 2,500 Pumpkin Pies.

Gravy Train



The remaining two objectives will require having had at least 250 and 500 Idols respectively as well as the event currency of Pumpkin Pie to start. In Gravy Train, a giant train of gravy will block slots in your formation. And the Plaid Friday Deals are too good to be true! Crusaders cost less...but they do much less DPS over the entire 200 areas.

Can you stop the killer food before it's too late? Or will the enhanced tryptophan slow you down?

You have until Monday December 7th at Noon PST to control the madness!

Gobble Down Your Thanksgiving Meal in BW2! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Thank Goodness for Thanksgiving!

The residents of The Commons are preparing for a massive feast to celebrate the end of harvest season, and of course they need your expertise at finding things in bushes!

First and foremost, it's all about helping the chefs fill their food stations to the brim - and beyond. There's three of them for three types of meals, so you'll be collecting Meat, Veggies and of course Deserts to feed the hungry masses of Bushwhackia! Can you make all the Pristine Food? Keep doing turn-ins to achieve it!

On the subject of food - four of the guests have promised they would bring a dish to share, but they've forgotten ingredients.

And then, there's the problem of the Turkeys. Apparently, they need to be rescued in some fashion, so you'll need to get on that.

New for 2015:

We've added two new quests for this year. One celebrates other harvest festivals around the world and the other involves an inflatable surprise. They'll unlock as the event goes on. And tune in on Thanksgiving (or after if you're enjoying your day off), for a fun show!

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:

  • 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,

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.
