COTLI: Carnage Cup 4 

Put on those cleats and pads, and maybe a mouth guard and helmet, too — the biggest event of the year in CrusaderSports™ is here: CARNAGE CUP 4!!

This year's contenders are exciting to behold, perhaps none so than the newest Crusader to take to the field, a Half-Dwarf/Half-Orc powerhouse by the name of Nargulg Granitehand. Yes folks, you read that right: Granitehand. This guy has been training his whole life for a chance to compete in the most chaotic event in CrusaderSports™, and he's here to win.

GET READY FOR CARNAGE CUP TIER 4!

Carnage Cup 4 introduces Nargulg Granitehand, and brings back Groklok the Orc, Drizzle the Dark Elf, Karl the Kicker, Cindy the Cheer-Orc, and Griz the Robo-Coach! The carnage comes to a close on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 12:00PM PT, so make sure to unlock and gear up Nargulg and the rest of the squad before then!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Nargulg Granitehand

    Nargulg small for Orc. But Nargulg big for Dwarf.
    Nargulg loves chaos! Nargulg loves fight!
    Crusaders like murder. Crusaders like Carnage Cup.
    Nargulg join Crusaders!
    Nargulg win Carnage Cup!

Nargulg Granitehand is a Half-Dwarf/Half-Orc Crusader, who managed to draw all the anger and fury from both races into a single muscular body of destruction. He increases Click Damage for every Dwarf Crusader and Orc Crusader in the formation, with Nargulg counting twice because he's both!

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Groklok the Orc, Drizzle the Dark Elf, Karl the Kicker, Cindy the Cheer-Orc, and Griz the Robo-Coach are all once again available to unlock!

Merci's Mix-Up 2017 

Love is in the air again and to celebrate the most romantic date in the calendar, we're relaunching the Merci's Mix-up event. This time with two new Tier 2 romantic leads and three new Tier 2 objectives.

It's time to get romantic. The Merci's Mix-up event runs from today through to February 21st at Noon PST. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Rocky and Sally to your roster.

Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Warwick the Warlock and Katie the Cupid.

New Tier Two Crusader: Warwick the Warlock.

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Warwick the Warlock. This mischievous leprechaun replaces The Bush Whacker as the main clicker. At level 100, his ability Soul Harvest spreads the click damage to all enemies in a small radius around your click.

At level 400, Warwick unlocks Curse of Weakness where enemies damaged by your clicks take 100% more damage from your DPS for 5 seconds.

New Tier Two Crusader: Katie the Cupid.

When it comes to the business of love, opposites do attract. Katie the Cupid is all sweetness and light compared to Warwick. At level 150, she unlocks Cupid's Arrow and shoots a random enemy with a love arrow every 5 seconds for 200% Global DPS. At level 400 her Snugglin' ability gives +15% Gold Find for each adjacent male crusader, up to a maximum of 2 (Max 2x30% w/ Epic)

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Warwick and Katie, there are three more objectives to keep you busy.

New Tier Two Objective: The Bachelorette.

In The Bachelorette a bachelorette takes up a spot in your formation. Every 25 levels, she sends one bench seat packing (in a fixed order), making it unavailable in subsequent levels all the way to area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: It's Raining Men.

In the objective, It's Raining Men only male crusaders are allowed. That's it. Do your best Weather Girls impression and fend off all your new admirers to reach area 450.

New Tier Two Objective: The Cost of Love.

The final new Tier Two objective is The Cost of Love. Now Crusaders cost much more than normal and enemies drop less gold until you beat area 500.

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Valentines Silver and Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until February 21st at Noon PST to complete the event. Let Love Rule!

Carnage Cup 2017 

Put on your cleats, Crusaders! It's time for the Carnage Cup: the most violent, the most painful, and by far the most exciting hand-egg ball competition in the whole universe! Recruit all four of the Carnage Cup Crusaders, including two brand new ones, as you throw, run, and kick your way to victory.

The tailgate party is underway and now the game begins starting today and running through to February 7th at Noon PST. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Groklok and Drizzle to your roster.

Of course, as this is a 2017 update of the original event you can also collect two new Crusaders: Karl the Kicker and Cindy the Cheer-Orc.

New Tier Two Crusader: Karl the Kicker.

Karl the Kicker takes up the same slot as Natalie Dragon and has some cool abilities in his kit bag. At level 50 Split the Uprights divides your DPS evenly between the front-most and back-most enemies (if there's only one enemy, it will take full normal damage; if two, each takes 50% of total DPS).

At level 400, Karl unlocks Play Of The Game where the back-most enemy takes an additional 40% damage (multiplicative; so front-most takes 50% of total DPS, back-most takes 70% of total DPS)

New Tier Two Crusader: Cindy the Cheer-Orc.

Cindy the Cheer-Orc has some cool abilities hidden in her pom-poms. At level 50, she unlocks Top of the Pyramid which will buff other Crusaders' DPS up to 25% per slot based on how far away they are from Cindy. At level 400 her Practice Makes Perfect ability increases the effect of Top of the Pyramid based on the area you've reached by 10% (multiplicative) per 50 areas.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Karl and Cindy, there are three more objectives to keep you busy.

New Tier Two Objective: Flag On The Play.

In Flag On The Play referees spawn as monsters, and when they die, they throw a flag on one of your Crusaders disabling their DPS and Formation Abilities for 30 seconds.

New Tier Two Objective: Stand By For This Important Word From Our Sponsor.

Stand By For This Important Word From Our Sponsor introduces TV sets interminably promoting various products you absolutely have to own. When a TV dies, you get a random positive or negative effect for a few seconds (e.g. reduced global DPS, reduced gold bonus, increased global DPS, or increased gold bonus).

New Tier Two Objective: Halftime Show.

The final new Tier Two objective is Halftime Show. A singer and several musical instruments take up space in your formation. The singer performs for 10 seconds every 10-20 seconds. Whenever the singer is singing, the deafening noise reduces your DPS by 99.99%. When she stops, your DPS returns at a rate of 5% per second.

Equipment for both Tier 1 and 2 Crusaders can be found in Carange Cup Silver and Jeweled Chests. However, gear for the Tier 2 Crusaders will only appear once you've unlocked the respective Crusader.

You'll have until February 7th at Noon PST to win the Championship and claim the Carnage Cup trophy. Go team!

New Event! Carnage Cup 

“Most football players are temperamental. That’s 90% temper and 10% mental” – Doug Plank

It's that time of year for picking up the ol' pigskin, smashing into a group of men geared up in armour to spike the said pigskin into the end zone in celebration.

As the single biggest sports fan of the group, Jim the Lumberjack is beside himself with excitement for the major sports event in the Crusader calendar: The Carnage Cup.

Rounding up the fellow Crusaders he decides to throw a tailgate party ahead of the big game. Unfortunately for Jim, it all goes wrong very quickly and soon the Crusaders have to destroy swathes of monsters before he and team can enjoy the sporting festivities.


New Crusader! Groklok


Packing together in the new football formation, the Crusaders have a chance to add two new characters to their ranks. Groklok the Orc is a beast of a linebacker who's abilities include increasing the DPS of Crusaders in front of him by 150% among other abilities.

Drizzle the Dark Elf is the nimble, tricky running-back. Drizzle enjoys a unique partnership with Groklok. Just like the best players, they can combine in various ways to maximize their tactics.

Playing Drizzle in front of Groklok will buff his formation ability by 100%. If Drizzle and Groklok play alongside each other, the combined skills buff Groklok's DPS by 400%. When Groklok is blocking and tackling in any column in front of Drizzle, Groklok's line gets a health buff and takes less damage.


New Crusader! Drizzle


Both new Crusaders require some training to play with their new team. The Crusaders will need to complete the first two objectives for the new campaign to add both players to their rosters.

In the first objective, Groklok's ponderous pre-training skills will debuff the DPS of all the Crusaders behind him as he fails to block the attacks of the incoming monsters. In the second objective, Drizzle's lack of teamwork will disable the formation abilities of all adjacent Crusaders.

This event we're honouring two more YouTube celebrities who have been producing awesome Crusaders videos. Again, just like MrBayEasy, you'll find them as boss monsters within the game. Keep an eye out for them as you play.



Bensch hails from Germany and has produced more than sixty Let's Play videos so far. Brothgar is one of our more recent YouTube friends who is also a massive Clicker/Idle gamer. Check out both their channels and subscribe.

So, what are you waiting for? Establish your running game, dominate the line of scrimmage, pound it out on the ground, and stick to your game plan.
