Anniversary Celebration and Friendly Fixes (April 18th, 2019)

- 7th Anniversary Celebration is happening in the outdoor theater area of the Commons from April 17th to noon PST April 19th

- You can now see who helped a crop if you click it and mouse over the “helps” bar

- Fixed being able to bug people to play who have played recently, which should remove the “help stem the tide…” requests people are seeing when they play regularly

- Now show a popup saying "You already have the max number of friends, and cannot add any more!" when you open the request dialog via clicking to invite friends, if you have the max number of friends. This should reduce some invite spam players are seeing.

- Changed the type of the Balloon Kitty from “misc” to “premium”

- Fixed being able to remove a mount's base bonus when you remove levels of the same bonus (April 15th)

- Fixed various reported typos and quest descriptions. Keep the reports coming!

Celebrate Bush Whacker 2's 7th Anniversary! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

As some of you may know, April 18th marks the day BW2 was first released.

We sometimes run a full Anniversary event, but this year, as with other years where Easter doesn't come early, we're dialing the party back to a small developer celebration in the Commons where the Theater currently stands.

Much like the 5th anniversary, you'll be able to get cake, buy items from past anniversary celebrations from Nick, and complete Georgia's quest to get 2 new developer gnomes.

The celebration will start at 9 AM (PDT) on Wednesday April 17th and end at noon (PDT) on Friday April 19th. Don't miss out!

Lastly, we'd like to thank you for being such an amazing community.

Spring Sale & Optimizations (April 5th, 2019)

BW2: Day(s) of Forests Limited Time Quest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

A representative from the United Villages of Bushwhackia is facilitating tree planting for the Day of Forests! Talk with them in the Commons to get started.

Once you accept the Day(s) of Forests quest, you'll be able to accept repeating Tree Planting quests! For completing each Tree Planting quest, you'll be rewarded with 10 Tree Tokens, and can go tree planting again after an 8 hour cooldown.

You can also get Tree Tokens by trading in Pine Beetles, which you can occasionally find with the Day(s) of Forests quest active.

You can spend your Tree Tokens in the Ye Forest Awareness Arboretum on unique custom and ranch items. It will be challenging to collect enough Tree Tokens to buy every item in the store. If you can manage it, tree planting twice each day should get you enough tokens for most of the store items.

Tree planting ends at noon on Monday April 1st, after which you can still spend tokens until noon on Tuesday April 2nd.

Redeem this code before noon on Monday April 1st for 5 free Super Blueberry Seeds: DAYO-FFOR-ESTS-2019

COTLI: Superhero Spring 4 

Ominous Voiceover: "The situation has never been more dire — certainly not last year, nor the previous two years before that. It's bad. Like, really, really bad. And, once again, it's up to the Crusaders to stop--"

Deathpuddle: "BO-RING! Lets talk about me!"

Ominous Voiceover: "--I was getting to that--"

Deathpuddle: "News flash: nobody cares! About what you're saying, I mean. What they do care about, is who the next Crusader is — and it's me, Deathpuddle!"

Ominous Voiceover: "Aren't you just a ripoff of Dead--"

Deathpuddle: "Shush, you! Okay, so players, I'm coming to the game as part of Superhero Spring 4, the latest Tier 4 Event coming to Crusaders of the Lost Idols. I'll be joining the company of such copyright infringing Event Crusaders as The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose — and just in time for Endgame, to boot! The party stops and I take off on April 11th at noon PDT, so be sure to unlock me and get all my stuff before then!"

New Tier 4 Crusader: Deathpuddle

Deathpuddle: "Are you wondering how good I am? Of course you are. Spoiler alert: I am awesome at everything — assuming you want everything to die, that is.

I'm a killer of things. I get better at killing things with most of my upgrades. And, if you do somehow manage to get me killed, don't worry! Death is only temporary and I come back BETTER THAN EVER.

Seriously, I'm the best. Buy me!"

Crusaders Return

Deathpuddle: "I guess if you're already here you should maybe consider unlocking some of the other Crusaders who call themselves 'heroes' but really aren't all that special. Until April 9th you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their boring objectives. The Bat Billionaire, The Metal Soldierette, Arachnobuddy, Foresight, and Thoonoose are okay in a pinch, but they're no Deathpuddle!"

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Deathpuddle | Deathpuddle takes up a slot in your formation. Lucky you! Crusaders lose 5% of their maximum health each second, and every 15 seconds or so I get bored and randomly kill an adjacent Crusader. Reach area 600.

  • Death Totally Crushes Me | The Death takes up a spot in the formation. Death randomly kills two Crusaders in each area. Reach area 700.

  • Accelerated Healing | You can only take Deathpuddle and Healer Crusaders on this adventure! Reach area 750.

  • Enter the Soul Stone | Minions of Thoonoose occupy several slots in the formation. Thoonoose increases global DPS by 100% per Superhero Spring and Gardener of the Galaxy Crusader in the formation when he occupies the center slot. Reach area 800.

  • Secret Identity | 'Normal people' take up spaces in the formation. Only Superhero Crusaders, Nate, and Bush Whacker may be used. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Deathpuddle: "You can find loot in SUPERHERO CHESTS, of course! Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Superhero Spring Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or spend your sweet, sweet, money on in the shop. Each non-recruitment objective will drop a chest for its given tier of Crusaders, and free play will drop all-tier chests. Gear for Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusaders. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop. Is that all of it? Sheesh, that was a long paragraph.

You'll have until Thursday, April 11, 2019 at 12:00PM PDT to complete Superhero Spring 4! Do it! Do it now!"

Sssserpentine Asssisssstance in Bushwhackia 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

A sssserpentine visitor needs your help training new breeds of Serpent Mounts! Catch them slithering around the Commons, pick a serpent, and start training!

You'll get Serpent Coins for every level your chosen mount gets and for completing the visitor's daily quests, and you can spend them in their slithery serpent shoppe!

This opportunity ends on Wednesday, February 27th, by which time you'll have to return your serpent, unless you've adopted it!
