BW2 Summer Carnival Event 2017 Edition 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Summer Carnival Event 2017

The Carnival has returned to town! Get ready to play some games, help some Bushwhackian residents and win carnival tokens which you can exchange for cool prizes at the Carnival Event Vendor!

The Carnival Games:

A staple of any summer carnival or fair, are those devilish carnival games. There are four different games which will unlock over the course of the event and they include "Balloon Popper," "Whack-A-Mole," "Baseball Throw," and "Duck Shoot." Don't worry, there's no skill involved with these games, you play them automatically when you interact with them.

- It costs 4 carnival tickets to play each game, and you can whack those tickets out of the bushes, or purchase them from Timmy in the Event area for Bush Bucks (30 Salvaged Tickets for 30 Bush Bucks)

- You receive Carnival Tokens based on how well you do. Now, we're not saying they're rigged in the Carnival's favour or anything, but you'll definitely want to ask your friends to help you rig these games to help you! (Platforms without Friend functionality are balanced accordingly.)

To get started, the Balloon Popper game is unlocked! As well, it seems William needs your help to satisfy his sweet-tooth!

The Pandaclaw was wandering around here somewhere....build the teleporter and complete all the quests and get your very own!

The dunk tank makes a triumphant return this year! Can you dunk all 8 helpless Bushwhackian residents? This year, NPCs you haven't dunked yet will have a yellow exclamation mark above their heads, to let you know you still need to send them plunging into the icy waters of the tank! Help them all cool off!

Peat Bog, Pete the Carney's brother has some tasks for you to help him put on a show!

New for 2017
We've added new quests to the event! Peat Bog has another show to put on, if you helped him last year. Plus, that Dunk Tank is looking a little dirty. Help clean it daily once those quests unlock!

And how are your Power collection skills? Are you strong enough to win all the bonus prizes?

Event Achievements- POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!!

There are up to 17 possible achievements that can be picked up during the Summer Carnival 2017 event, depending on your game history.

New Event! Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage 

After a giant, surreal opening ceremony we are delighted to declare the Crusaders of the Lost Idols Summer Games open!

However, as usual with huge international events, nefarious ne'er-do-wells plot to disrupt the pageantry and sportsmanship. Despite his name, Dr. Evil escaped the surveillance programs put in place by the organizers. Now he has made off with the Summer Games Flashlight, the Duracell-powered symbol of sport (and convenient portable lighting when it gets dark).

The Crusaders have been hired to not only locate the aforementioned flashlight but also protect the event. That responsibility starts with the safe conduct of two new Crusaders.

New Crusader: Veronica, the Android Archer


Veronica, the Android Archer, certainly won't fail the doping tests, but something suggests she's going to have an unfair advantage in the archery competition. We can't quite put our finger on it. Whatever.

For the first objective, the heroes must escort her to area 100 as part of her training. Unfortunately for the Crusaders her Russian-purchased hardware is malfunctioning shooting sparks at the rest of the formation every 30-45 seconds reducing the global DPS by 50% for 15 seconds at a time.

At area 100 she'll return from the maintenance bay ready to aid the Crusaders. Her upgrades buff those around her with increasing damage based on the number of other robot Crusaders in your formation.

New Crusader: Bubba, the Swimming Orc


The second Crusader is Bubba, the Swimming Orc. With a name like that, it's no wonder Bubba didn't do so well at other disciplines like the equestrian trials and hockey.

Bubba is excellent at swimming. He's so good, in fact, he's earned himself a fervent following of fans who attack the Crusaders to get to him until they reach area 100.

Once recruited, Bubba uses his superior swimming ability at level 25 to buff the DPS of the Crusaders behind him by 25% for every adjacent Crusader. At level 100, Bubba will increase the Gold Find of every Crusader behind him not affected by his Synchronized Swimming ability by 10%.

New Objective: Press Junket


The remaining three objectives are Podium Finish, Press Junket, and Corrupt Officials. In Podium Finish three medals take up formation slots all the way to area 150. in Press Junket angry reporters demanding explanations for your lackluster performances attack the Crusaders. Block them all with 'no comment' and swift cuffs to the head. The final objective will see corrupt officials bribe random Crusaders to throw the race all the way to area 250 and reduce their DPS.

Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage Challenge


In the spirit of competition the world over right now, we have a special announcement. Three of our good friends on YouTube are going to be competing against each other to finish Dr. Evil's Summer of Sabotage event with the winner earning a free jeweled chest for each and every one of their subscribers.

Hailing from the United States is MrBayEasy. An idle gamer of Olympian ability, MrBayEasy has been playing Crusaders from way back in October last year. From Germany, Bensch is another giant of the idle games pantheon with more than 130 Crusaders videos under his belt on his channel. Last, but by no means least, we have Brothgar also hailing from the United States. Brothgar's idle game pedigree is uncontested with many years of playing both Crusaders and other games on his channel.

1st Prize: Free Jeweled Chest for Every Subscriber


As mentioned, the winner will earn a free jeweled chest for every one of their subscribers!. The rules are simple, the contender who finishes all five objectives in the event in the shortest time will be named the champion. Due to time zones and other commitments, we'll be recording each of their start and finish times as opposed to the launch of the event.

You can follow their progress by checking out their respective YouTube channels. We'll be sharing their videos on Facebook and Twitter plus hosting their live streams on the official Crusaders of the Lost Idols Twitch account.

We're excited and honored to be hosting such illustrious company and wish each competitor good luck. We'll announce the winner in the coming days.

The Dr. Evil's Summer Sabotage event will run until August 22nd at Noon PDT.

New Event! Littlefoot's Big Adventure 

It's the time of year to forgo the usual comforts of your soft bed, sturdy walls, and an internet connection for a thin piece of material between you and mother nature. That's right! It's the Summer, and that means camping season!


New Crusader: Ranger Rayna

As the Crusaders set off into the wild, they are looking to rescue two new Crusaders and add them to the gang. The first of the two Crusaders is the hapless Ranger Rayna, who not only requires an escort to area 100 and salvation, but she'll mistakenly debuff adjacent Crusaders with park fines the entire way believing that she's not in any danger.

Once rescued, she'll become an asset. Her love of all wildlife enables her to heal any animal Crusaders by 25% of their max health per second when she reaches level 75. Furthermore, at level 150 she'll recieve a giant 200% increase to her DPS if there are four animal Crusaders in the formation.


New Crusader: Littlefoot

The second new Crusader is somewhat shy. Littlefoot has spent a lifetime minding her own business but all that is thrown into disarray when some determined Pokemon Go players/Bigfoot enthusiasts stumble across her home deep in the forest. Delirious with Augmented Reality they believe her to be a legendary Pokemon and chase her all the way to area 100 taking up valuable slots in the formation.

Once the Pokemon Go players run out of Poke Balls, Littlefoot is free to join the Crusaders and repace your current tank. At level 50 Littlefoot can employ her first unique ability, Parry. For the duration of the ability, Littlefoot is immune to damage for one second after a monster starts attacking her. If this effect lasts for more than 15 seconds in a row, it cannot occur for the next 15 seconds.


New Objective: Number One Threat

The remaining three objectives include Lost in the Woods where you Crusaders randomly become lost and disappear from the formation. The second objective, Number One Threat, will see the team pitted against godless killing machines - Col-bears. These vicious threats to the American way of life will randomly appear and if they reach the formation will insta-kill and then move onto the next Crusader victim.


New Objective: Long Journey

The final new objective is Long Journey requires the hiring of some pack horses to carry supplies all the way to area 300. Unfortunately, they'll take up slots in your formation.

The Littlefoot's Big Adventure event will run until August 1st at Noon PDT.
