COTLI: Merci's Mix-Up 5! 

Merci is nothing if not tenacious. After four years of trying to find a match for a Valentine's Day outing, he's still game to try and try again with help from his ever growing collection of friends.

This year he's bringing in the big guns: a professional Matchmaker!

It's time for Merci's Mix-Up 5!

Merci's Mix-Up 5 runs until Wednesday, February 26th at 12PM PST, introducing Alacrity the Matchmaker and bringing back Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, Frankie the Demon Crooner, and Ishtar!

New Tier 5 Crusader: Alacrity the Matchmaker

Alacrity the Matchmaker isn't your stereotypical demon. They're bubbly, vivacious and willing to help out your team with their skills, and some help from their impish friends.

The flow of magic in your formation will affect Alacrity with the Metamorphosis Mastery upgrade. When you have more magical than non-magical tagged Crusaders next to Alacrity, they'll change into their female self. When it's more non-magical than magical adjacent, Alacrity will switch to their male self. If there's a even amount of magical and non-magical Crusaders around them, they'll remain their bubbly Non-Binary self.

Alacrity is so friendly, that they're able to summon 3 Imp friends to help them, and you, out:
  • Summon Scamp - If Alacrity is adjacent to at least 2 Support tagged Crusaders, they'll summon Scamp. When Scamp is active, monster spawn speed is increased by 50%. This is buffed when Alacrity is in their male form, and can be buffed by their Love Meter equipment.

  • Summon Trickster - When there are at least 2 Angel or Demon tagged Crusaders in the formation, Trickster will be summoned. While Trickster is around, they'll summon a special Imp monster every 10 seconds, which counts for area progress and drop extra gold when killed. Spawns will double when Alacrity is in their Non-Binary form and you can reduce the summoning timer by collecting Alacrity's Letterhead gear.

  • Summon Scoundrel - When Alacrity is adjacent to at least 4 other Crusaders, Scoundrel will show up. Scoundrel provides the formation with a 50% global DPS buff per each adjacent Crusader, which is increased when Alacrity is female.

  • Familiarity - The imps continue to help out with this upgrade, providing an extra buff to the gold find provided for having Crusaders who share tags with Alacrity in formation.
When you want to add Alacrity to your formation, you can find them in slot 31 on the bench, swapping with Bridget and Xygallix.

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit Alacrity | Alacrity is chilling out in a slot in the formation and reduces all Crusaders DPS to 0 if there are an unequal number of Male and Female Crusaders in it.
    Reach area 400.

  • Pairing Off | If any Crusaders have more than 1 Crusader adjacent to them, all DPS is zero.
    Reach area 450.

  • A Pox on Commercialism | Only Valentine's hating Crusaders are available. Check the in-game Restrictions for the list of the available Crusaders.
    Reach area 475.

  • 'Match' Maker | A fiery spirit occupies a spot in the formation. It deals damage over time to the highest and lowest DPS Crusaders in the formation, if there are two or more Crusaders in formation.
    Reach area 500.

  • Valentine's Day | A bitter heart occupies a spot in formation and disables Crusaders if you hurt its feelings.
    Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Valentine's Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy 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, Tier 4 and Tier 5 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 when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

What About Older Event Crusaders?

Previously-available Merci's Mix-Up Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of Merci's Mix-Up 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Wednesday, February 26th at 12:00PM PST to complete Merci's Mix-Up 5.

COTLI: New High Tier Objectives! 

Today we're introducing 14 new objectives to the game for you to enjoy! Plus we've made some long awaited changes to one objective in particular, and revamped The Washed Up Hermit to go along with it.

We've updated World's Wake with the Tier 4 11th objective, and the five Tier 5 objectives. We've also added the Tier 4 11th objective for Descent Into Darkness and the seven Tier 5 objectives, plus we've finally changed up Get Me Out of Here so it's easier to get to the content it guards.

New World's Wake Objectives

New Tier 4 11th objective - Washed Up - The Washed Up Hermit occupies a slot in your formation and is the only one who can do DPS. Beat area 1000 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards the new maximum number cap being 1e700. This means with maxed Arithmagician, your maximum number cap will be 1e900.

New Tier 5 objectives

  • Run Away - Beat area 400 with a back column full of rabbits, and increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 250 rubies.

  • Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch - Protect the Hand Grenade to area 450 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 300 rubies.

  • Inflation - It's your toughest challenge yet: not just leveling up Nate Dragon any longer, but instead doing your best to get the entire formation to level 1000 in order to complete the objective. Awards 350 rubies.

  • Your Mother's A Hamster - The Trojan Rabbit needs your escort skills again, as chickens and cows rain from the sky. Beat area 450 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 350 rubies.

  • Top Tier - Beat area 450 with just half your Crusaders available and increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 350 rubies.

New Descent Into Darkness Objectives

Tier 4 11th objective - Inner Darkness - A seer occupies a slot in the formation and moves every 100 areas. She reveals the dark side of Crusaders adjacent to her, though The Shadow Queen is immune to this effect. If any Crusader dies, the formation wipes and goes back an area. Beat area 1200 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards Bonus Boss Idol drops on the weekly Challenge objectives.

New Tier 5 objectives

  • Grond! Grond! Grond! - Escort the vicious battering ram and beat area 450 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 300 rubies.

  • Get Me Out of Here! - Beat area 450 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 300 rubies.

  • Lone Descent - It's a solo walk for a Crusader to beat area 500 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 350 rubies.

  • Double Trouble - Beat area 500 with increased difficulty scaling, as the hoards of monsters and quest items rush at you. Awards 400 rubies.

  • Dual Descent - Pair up your favourite Angels or Demons as two of them take a stroll to beat area 550 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 400 rubies.

  • Demolition Derby - Escort the explosive demolition experts to area 500 with increased area difficulty scaling. Awards 350 rubies.

  • Slow Descent - Try beating area 250 this time. Awards 400 rubies.

Changes to Get Me Out of Here

This update brings changes to Get Me Out of Here, specifically in that it is no longer a timed objective. As we continue to add content to the game, including the higher tier objectives, we feel that while the old version of Get Me Out of Here was a unique piece in the game, at the higher levels of difficulty it would be a blocker to all the new content.

Get Me Out of Here is now set up in the following manner:

  • Tier 1 - Monsters can't be damaged by DPS as you try to beat area 150. Awards 200 rubies.

  • Tier 2 - An escort takes up the middle slot in the formation. If it dies, the formation wipes backwards an area. Beat area 350. Awards 250 rubies.

  • Tier 3 - Escape is even further away as you need to beat area 550. Awards 300 rubies.

  • Tier 4 - You need to beat area 750 without the help of your Legendary effects. Awards 300 rubies.

But how do new players complete Get Me Out of Here if there's no projectile Crusader in the original 20 Crusaders? That leads on to the next section.

Changes to The Washed Up Hermit

We are fans of The Washed Up Hermit's old mechanic of not having a Crusader directly in front of him, but if he wasn't in the front of your formation, it meant leaving an empty spot in your formation to get the power out of him, and most of the time, having another Crusader with Group DPS upgrades was more important than his boost.

So we've changed up his Craziness ability to require 2 or less adjacent Crusaders to the Hermit to get the boost out of it. Plus, since he is a bit crazy and he had the Arrow Attack ability sitting right there, we've changed it so that he's now a projectile firing Crusader. That way, he can help new players tackle the improved Get Me Out of Here, and for other objectives that would require a projectile Crusader before they've had a chance to recruit one from an event or the mission system.

But wait, wasn't his Arrow Attack a boost for The Bush Whacker? Don't worry! The Washed Up Hermit still boosts The Bush Whacker. We've moved the Swordplay boost to the Hermit's Dark War Stories upgrade. to accommodate the loss of that Self DPS upgrade, we boosted his remaining Self DPS upgrades. Now the Hermit is ready to help you out in your formations with his brand of crazy!

We hope you enjoy this update!

BW2: Celebrate Nate's Birthday Event, 2020 Edition! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Happy Birthday Nate!

It’s that time of year again! Help celebrate Nate Dragon’s birthday by decorating the Commons for him....because no one else will.

First and foremost, whenever Nate is involved, safety becomes a priority. Find Safety Coins in the bushes and bring them to the stations in the Commons to stock up on protective gear. Turn in 10 coins at each station 50 times for an achievement. You can see the number of turn-ins you've completed at a station when you turn in a set of coins. The Kevlar Pad station is there on the first day of the event, and the Fire Extinguisher and Band Aid stations will unlock as the event goes on.

Then it seems Nate needs decorations and activities to set up in the Commons. Go out daily and find things for his party. Have fun trying out the activity stations as many times as you want!

If you're trying to get Tiny Little Arms or Just Like Nate achievements, or if you just want to have a little fun, you need to be wearing all pieces of the Dragon gear or the Nate outfit (available from the vendor's Bush Bucks store if it's your first time playing this event) while completing the 4 party Stations: Dynamite Activity, Campfire Activity, Digging Activity and the Training Whacking Activity.

If you've built the Town Hall, you can expect an fiery visitor to the party as well!

New for 2020:

We've added a new challenging quest unlocking as the event goes on, involving an amulet.

And introducing the 100% reward for this year: Holiday Pet Parts! Collect them all to create a unique pet! Check out the part for Nate's Birthday below!



Event Achievements - POSSIBLE SPOILER ALERT!!

There are a total SEVENTEEN possible Achievements to earn in the Nate’s Birthday 2020 event:

COTLI: Emo's New Moon 5 

The entity stood before them on four legs, a malignant hulk of flesh and skulls and candles. It had no eyes. It had too many teeth. Yet despite its gruesome appearance, the Crusaders found themselves strangely comforted by its presence. The Evanescent welcomed the Crusaders like a shepherd would their flock, ready take them on a journey into the beyond.

"Come with us," spoke The Evanescent, its mouth filled with row after row of jagged teeth. "We will show you the way..."

The skies have darkened and Emo's New Moon has risen once again. For our second Tier 5 Event, we welcome a new and truly otherworldly new Crusader. Are you ready to journey across the veil with this eldritch monstrosity?

Emo's New Moon 5 runs until Tuesday, November 5th at 12PM PST, introducing The Evanescent and bringing back Wendy the Witch, Jack O'Lantern, Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul, Fright-o-Tron 4000, Viktor the Vampire, and Trixie the Treater!

New Tier 5 Crusader: The Evanescent

Stories tell of beings that escort souls from one existence to another. The Evanescent is one such being, an entity tied to the entropy and transition of all things into... what comes next.

When it comes to your formations, The Evanescent brings something unique to Slot 22. They use The Great Equalizer to grant the base tags of each Crusaders in The Evanescent's column to each other Crusader in the column. For example, if you have Zoraeban, Demonic Angel in your column along with The Evanescent, every Crusader in that column will be an Angel and a Demon in addition to their other base tags.

Vanitas, Bring Me to Life, and Memento Mori each offer more straightforward Global DPS buffs. Candle in the Window buffs Crusaders behind The Evanescent in the formation for each Enchantment Point (EP) from heroes not in the formation, while Until the Mourning increases the potency of the buff. Finally, Samhain increases Global DPS for each unique tag in the formation.

The Evanescent awaits all things. After all, we all die eventually...

New Tier 5 Objectives

  • Recruit The Evanescent | The Evanescent takes up a slot in the formation and disables the DPS and upgrades of adjacent Crusaders with the Support tag. Reach area 400 with the new difficulty scaling.

  • Rest in Pieces | Only Angels, Demons, and Undead Crusaders - along with Trixie the Treater - may be used. Reach area 450.

  • Dreams on Yew Street | Special Freddie monsters have a chance to spawn with each wave of monsters. The Freddies will take out the DPS and upgrades of a Crusader, one Crusader per Freddie on screen. The Freddies disappear when they hit the formation. Reach area 475.

  • The Henry Spooky Photo Show | Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul begins in your formation, and cannot be moved or swapped out. Other Crusaders do no DPS. Riff Raff and Magenta also occupy slots in the formation, changing to different slots every 100 areas. Reach area 500.

  • Halloween Potluck | Wendy the Witch starts in your formation and cannot be moved or swapped out. Damage done to monsters is based on the lowest DPS Crusader in your formation. Trick or Treat Monsters have returned. Each area has double the number of enemies or bosses. Finally, enemies drop less gold and quest items, and the requirements to pass an area are doubled. Reach area 525.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Halloween Chests, which you can earn from objectives and the free play or buy 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, Tier 4 and Tier 5 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 when you go to purchase chests with real money or event currency.

What About Older Event Crusaders?

Previously-available Emo's New Moon Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3, and Tier 4 Crusaders are once again available to unlock as part of Emo's New Moon 5. For more information about those Crusaders, check out our Event Blogs from previous years:


Players will have until Tuesday, November 5th at 12:00PM PST to complete Emo's New Moon 5. Good luck!

BW2: Generation 11 Pets are Here! 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Gotta find 'em all! A new selection of critters are now available to be your companions!

Those weirdly random abandoned eggs scattered all over Bushwhackia have been switched up and all new pets are ready to hatch when you accept the "Find an Egg" quest from Misty. She will also have all the Generation 11 eggs available to purchase for Bush Bucks during the "Find an Egg" quest.


Other changes to Misty and Hank for Generation 10:
  • Misty will no longer let players abandon Gen 10 pet eggs that they are hatching (they're now too rare). Only current generation pet eggs can be abandoned during hatching. Please note that if you're in the middle of hatching a pet, then that egg will still hatch into whatever pet it would have been before.

  • Generation 10 pet eggs can now be found in Quester's Satchels (with the same limitations as the Generation 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 eggs, which will still be available in satchels as well.)

  • Hank now sells a random assortment of hatched level 1 Generation 11 pets (instead of Generation 10) for Bush Bucks in his pet store.

COTLI: Mme. Finklebottom's Revenge, Tier 2! 

At last, Mme. Finklebottom's Revenge joins the rest of the campaign pack, with a slew of new objectives including the tier 1 and 2 11th-slot objectives. Beat them to unlock Arenvarr the Beheaded, and Bonus Idols for the campaign.

This update today sees the addition of eleven objectives for you to tackle on our most recent campaign Mme. Finklebottom's Revenge!

Remaining Tier 1 Objectives

  • Vertical Limits - Reach area 700 while avoiding frostbite.

  • Dead Snow - Reach area 750 while looking out for zombies, with a unique formation.

  • Everest - Reach area 800, if you can still breathe. This Tier 1 11th objective unlocks the Crusader Arenvarr, the Beheaded. Arenvarr's gear can be found in normal Silver and Jeweled chests.

Tier 2 Objectives

  • The Journey of the Ring The journey continues on to area 800, and a Wizard has joined his halfling-friends in your party.

  • Call in the Eagles! Suffer your avian companions for another 200 areas, to reach area 850.

  • Let's Dial In Reach area 850 not only with the pesky Astronomy Arch, but also with an alien influencer who disables the DPS of adjacent Crusaders.

  • It's the Climb Climb to area 900 this time, with your DPS spending more time at 0.

  • It's Getting Hot in Here The volcano is stepping up its game, as you escort it to area 900. Non-magical Crusaders adjacent to the volcano are disabled, and its starting to rain fire.

  • Vertical Limits - Reach area 900 while avoiding frostbite that builds up quicker than in Tier 1.

  • Dead Snow - Reach area 950 while avoiding the faster onslaught of zombies. Never fear though, the deathly chill empowers Zombie Winter, RoboQueen, and all Dragons, doubling the effects of their formation abilities.

  • Just So - Reach area 1000 with everything right where it ought to be. This Tier 2 11th objective unlocks Bonus Boss Idol drops for the Mme. Finklebottom's Revenge campaign and buffs all Bonus Boss Idol drops for all campaigns.


Enjoy!
