New Event! Alien Invasion Day 2017 

Those aliens never learn! The giant alien motherships hover into view above the freshly repainted White House, Eiffel Tower, and Big Ben. The builders in each country collectively sigh and start collecting their tools again.

The Alien Invasion Day 2017 event runs from today through to July 4th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Billy Smithsonian and Kizlyblyp, the Alien Traitor to your roster.

Kizlblyp has inspired another Crusader to leave Team Alien. Slisibyp, the Alien Scientist, has decided that joining the Crusaders will provide better opportunities for human experimentation. That's certainly what happens in the first objective when her weird alien hive-mind sees her conducting debilitating experiments on the other Crusaders until liberated after area 300.

New Crusader: Slisiblyp, the Alien Scientist.


Once recruited, Slisblyp unlocks Symbiosis which enables her to absorb 15% of non-adjacent heroes DPS and convert it to Click Damage.

At level 300, her ability Slimy makes clicked enemies move slower for 5 seconds which is renewed for each click.

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Red, the Ace Pilot, an awesome support Crusader who can provide cover for the Crusaders in front of her.

New Crusader: Red, the Ace Pilot.

At level 50, Red unlocks Cover. Her ability increases damage done against enemies who are attacking Crusaders adjacent to or in front of her by 25%.

Red unlocks Call for Backup increases the effect of Cover by 25% for each enemy attacking her (additive for each attacking enemy, then multiplicative with the effect of Cover).

Once you've recruited both Slislblyp and Red, there are three new side objectives to tackle in your quest.

New Objective: Catastrophe

In Catastrophe, Meteors rain from the sky, constantly damaging your Crusaders (a meteor falls every second, dealing 20% health damage to a single Crusader per hit). Meanwhile, a cock-sure oil driller and his two lackeys take up a slots in the formation.

New Objective: Parasites.

In the objective Parasites, three alien parasites jump from slot to slot in your formation. Two red parasites reduce the DPS of Crusaders they're attached to by 100%, while a single gold parasite disables formation abilities of whoever it's attached to.

New Objective: War of the Worlds.

The final new objective is War of the Worlds. Giant invulnerable alien tripod robot enemies spawn randomly and slowly move toward the formation. When they reach your formation, they instantly kill anyone they touch.

Equipment for the Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Independence chests. You'll have until July 4th at Noon PDT to complete the event.

Sneak Peak! Tier 4 Talents and Legendary Changes! 

They've been surrounded in rumor for a while, but now we're finally ready to talk about some of the upcoming Tier 4 Talents as well as some changes to certain Legendary loot. Read on to find out more!

Tier 4 Talents

One of the most common questions about Tier 4 Talents that we've seen is what area will you have to reach to unlock them. If you'll recall, you can't buy Tier 1 talents until you reach area 150. Tier 2 require 300, and Tier 3 require 600. Tier 4 Talents will continue the climb and require that you reach area 900 in any campaign before you can buy them. They will also cost a ridiculous amount of idols.

To give you a taste for the power invested in these new talents, we've going to highlight one of the new talents from each tree in this teaser blog. Are you ready?

Active Tree: Instant Satisfaction



This talent allows you to use your active abilities in rapid succession - if you're lucky! Why use Fire Storm once when twice is double as good? Maxing out the 21 levels in this talent to get a 50% chance will cost you just shy of 10,000,000 idols.

Passive Tree: Idols Over Time



The more time you take on a run, the more Idols you will earn. The bonus stacks additively and is progressive, so if you've got it maxed out at 50% for every 2 hours, you'll get 100% more idols after just four hours, 125% after five hours, and a massive 600% more after a day of idling. Great for overnight free plays or adding value to long challenging objectives! Maxing out this talent will cost you a cool 8,400,000 idols.

Utility Tree: Sprint Mode



What is Sprint Mode? Sprint mode allows you to skip between boss areas extremely quickly, assuming you can finish off the boss fast enough! If you defeat the boss and his minions within seven seconds of entering the area, you'll skip ahead five areas directly into the next boss area. This ability is only active in free play, but is definitely the creme de la creme of the new talents. Consider taking only 10 or 15 minutes to reach area 500 on your free plays? The idols will really start to pour in now. This power won't come cheap, though. Unlocking Sprint Mode up to area 500 will cost you more than 25,000,000 idols.

These new changes should allow players to reach new heights and earn idols even faster than ever before. While there is no tier 4 objective talent in this initial release, it is planned for a future update, meaning there will eventually be a whole slew of incredibly challenging objectives available for our most dedicated and voracious players.

Other Changes

We're also making some changes to the effects of several Legendary items - mainly items that increased the effects of existing formation abilities or stacked in unintended and overly powerful ways. These items will now instead provide an additive stacking buff. A full list of affected items will be released in the change log of the update.

But what if you've invested a lot of crafting material and catalysts in these items and don't find the new items to be powerful enough for your tastes? Well, we've taken care of that. You will now be able to disenchant (DE) Legendary items to recover the materials spent on them. Each DE'd legendary will return enough Common material to level them up to whatever level they were, as well as credit a free legendary craft. Free Legendary crafts do not require any catalysts, and are used automatically when you craft your next Legendary item(s).

We've also listened to players who were unhappy that Golden Legendary items used the normal Legendary name and icon, rather than special animated icons. In this update we'll make a change to all Golden Legendaries so that they use the same icon and name as the Golden Epic items that they upgrade from.

Wrapping Up

This update will also refresh players' free Talent respecs back to three. We're hoping to get this update out in the next little while, so stay tuned to the in-game news and change log over the coming weeks! Happy idling, Crusaders!

New Objectives & Weekend Buff 

We have a special surprise for you this week in the form of four brand new permanent objectives in the Amusement Park of Doom campaign. Plus, we have our weekly weekend buff.

The first of the four new objectives is Log Ride. Players can start the objective after completing You Must be THIS Tall and already have 30,000 idols banked. Every 10 seconds one of your Crusaders gets drenched by water, decreasing their DPS to 0 and disabling their formation abilities for 15 seconds. Players must reach area 650 to beat the objective.

Log Ride


Mauled By Mascots sees the intrepid Crusaders attacked by well-known, beloved characters, including Marty Mouse and Daryl Duck. It wouldn't be right to kill them so you must just fend off the invulnerable mascots until you can advance to the next area all the way to area 750.

Mauled By Mascots


Couples Day requires you to always have an equal number of male and female Crusaders on the field. However, we do give you some leeway to add one male or female Crusader as you unlock them (otherwise you couldn't add any Crusaders). To complete the objective, you must beat area 800.

Couples Day


The final new objective is It's Over Nine... Hundred? where you have to (you guessed it!) beat area 900.

It's Over Nine... Hundred?


We're also launching the new weekend buff, Amusing Objectives of Doom. The Bushwhacker, Veronica, the Android Archer, Gold Panda, Fire Phoenix, and Exterminator all get a boost for the weekend until 12 pm PDT on Monday, May 15th.

  • Bushwhacker - Critical Click Chance +6%
  • Veronica, the Android Archer - Precise Aim ability +200%
  • Gold Panda - All Gold Find +200%
  • Fire Phoenix - All DPS +200%
  • Exterminator - Spare Parts, and Slaved Systems +200%





Also, check out the limited-time Amusing Jeweled Chests that contain equipment for the five Crusaders above!

(Please note: The chest will only contain gear for Veronica and Exterminator if you've unlocked them. You will get Golden Epic for the Exterminator with your chest purchase and it will show up equipped on him, once you unlock him!)

  • Jim the Lumberjack - Sharpen Party ability +200%
  • Sasha the Fierce Warrior - Bulwark ability +200%

Gardeners of the Galaxy 2017 

I am Broot. Plus, the giant galaxy destroying plant is back, so there's that. Nate and the gang require more help to defeat the interplanetary flora interloper. Two new Tier Two Crusaders need to be recruited during this updated event.

Gardeners of the Galaxy event runs from today through to May 9th at Noon PDT. For those players who haven't unlocked them already, this is your chance to add both Broot and Robbie the Raccoon to your roster.

Two new Tier Two Crusaders are also available to unlock once you've completed the Tier One objectives: Spaceking and Grandmora.

New Tier Two Crusader: Spaceking.

The first of the two new Tier 2 Crusaders is Spaceking who'd put Zapp Brannigan to shame with his lascivious behaviour and penchant for melodrama.

At level 150, his ability Kirkin' It Up increases his DPS +100% for every alien Crusader in the same formation.

At level 400, Spaceking unlocks Avenger which increases his DPS +100% for each dead Crusader in the formation.

New Tier Two Crusader: Grandmora.

Grandmora is the ageing grandmother of intergalactic being, Thermos. She's an expert in knitting warm, ugly clothes and her insistence on feeding the other Crusaders makes her an ideal support Crusader.

At level 50, Grandmora unlocks Still Suspicious, an ability that Buffs all Crusaders in the column in front of her by 200%, divided by the number of Crusaders in the column behind her.

Grandmora unlocks Untrusting at level 150, the ability buffs all Crusaders in the column behind her by 50%, multiplied by the number of Crusaders in the column in front of her.

After you've completed the first new Tier Two objectives for Spaceking and Grandmora, there are three galaxy-sized new Tier Two objectives to complete.

New Tier Two Objective: Out of Control.

In Out of Control, a rapidly growing plant starts in just one formation slot, but spreads to a new formation slot every 50 areas, eventually encompassing all formation slots until you beat area 400.

New Tier Two Objective: Raid.

In the objective, Raid, two clouds of toxic spray float around the formation, moving to a random adjacent slot every 10 seconds. The Crusaders in the affected slots have their DPS reduced to zero and formation abilities disabled.

New Tier Two Objective: Slow and Steady.

The final new Tier Two objective is Slow and Steady. Every time a monster is killed, every Crusader in your formation takes 5% of their max health as damage. They naturally heal 20% damage every 5 seconds all the way to area 500.

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

You'll have until May 9th at Noon PDT to complete the event.
April 7th
Weekend Buff! Candy Celebration 

You're feeling good. You're feeling energetic. It probably has something to do with the copious amounts of candy you've been eating. Keep the feeling going!

The following Crusaders will get a buff this weekend starting from today until 12 pm PDT on Monday April 10th.

  • Pilot Pam - Focused Teamwork ability +200%
  • Jack O'Lantern - Cry For Help ability +200%
  • Dark Gryphon - Gold Find +200%
  • King Reginald IV - Royal Grail ability +200%
  • Merci the Mad Wizard - Deflect Evil ability +200%



Also, check out the limited-time Candy Jeweled Chests that contain equipment for the five Crusaders above! (Please note: The chest will only contain gear for Pam and Jack if you've unlocked them.)
