COTLI: Alien Invasion 2018 

Alien war. Alien war never changes. As massive motherships once again occupy our skies, it's time to take the fight to these alien overlords and cancel the apocalypse.

Alien Invasion 2018 runs until Tuesday, July 10 at 12:00pm PDT. Unlock Crusaders, battle aliens, and save the world!

New Tier 3 Crusader: First Lady Betty Smithsonian

First Lady Betty Smithsonian is a badass human Crusader buffer. Nobody can motivate troops or empower Crusader behaviour quite like her. The magnitude of her buff is increased by having certain tags in the formation.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier One and Two Crusaders by completing their respective Tier One and Two Objectives. President Billy Smithsonian, Kizlbylp, the Alien Traitor, Red, the Ace Pilot, and Slisyblyp, the Alien Scientist will be available to unlock while Alien Invasion 2018 is live!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit First Lady Betty Smithsonian | First Lady Betty Smithsonian takes up a slot in the formation. No human Crusaders can be used. Reach area 500.

  • First Contact | Only Human and Alien Crusaders can be used. Reach area 600.

  • Alien Circuitry | An alien bomb takes up a slot in the formation. You must complete each non-boss area within 30 seconds or it will explode, sending the party back one area. Reach area 650.

  • Strange Bedfellows | Three aliens take up slots in the formation, moving around every 50 areas and debuffing adjacent Crusader DPS by 50%. This debuff is additive, so two or more adjacent aliens will disable Crusader DPS. Reach area 700.

  • Abduction | Every 15 seconds one of your Crusaders is abducted from the formation for 60 seconds. During that time their formation abilities and DPS are disabled and they are "replaced" in the formation by an extremely unconvincing robot that decreases adjacent Crusader DPS by 90% (multiplicative). Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Independence 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 and Tier 3 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.

You'll have until Tuesday, July 10 at 12:00pm PDT to complete Alien Invasion 2018!

  • Mix Tape | Enemy Cassette Tapes attack the formation, each "playing" a different song debuff. Debuffs last until the cassette is killed. All cassettes survive for at least 1 second. Reach area 650.

  • Potted Garden | Three slots in the formation are taken up by potted plants, each one debuffing you in some way. Reach area 700.

  • Bug Out | Bug enemies spawn randomly, and each time one is killed, it reduces the DPS of a random Crusader by 50% for 60 seconds and creates a glowing purple cloud over them. This effect stacks additively if it the same Crusader is chosen multiple times. Reach area 750.
