Updated Event: Emo's New Moon 2017 

Emo's New Moon, Year 3!

Today we unveil our second Tier 3 event: Emo's New Moon! This year's event update includes a very unique new Crusader, Viktor the Vampire, whose support abilities are based upon the tags of those around him. We hope you enjoy him, and the 4 other new objectives available this year!

Emo's New Moon runs until Tuesday, November 7th at noon PST. For more information, check out the How to Play / FAQ in-game!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Viktor the Vampire

Viktor the Vampire is a buffer that converts adjacent Crusaders into vampires, granting them supernatural abilities and additional effects.

Crusaders Return

If you haven't already collected them, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Wendy the Witch and Jack O' Lantern by completing the respective 2015 objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Henry, The Scaredy-Ghoul, and Fright-o-tron 4000 and Development by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Four New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Bloody Mess | Every time a monster is killed, it leaves a blood puddle on the ground which slowly creeps towards the formation, dealing damage to the front-most Crusaders for 25% of their max hp. Reach area 600!

  • Witching Hour | Three witches on brooms take up three slots in your formation, debuffing the DPS of adjacent Crusaders. Every 100 areas they change positions. Reach area 650!

  • Infection | Every time you enter a non-boss area, one random Crusader in your formation gets an Infection, causing them to do no DPS and disabling their Formation Abilities. Every 6 seconds, the Infection spreads. Reach area 700!

  • Full Moon | Every 50 Areas the DPS of all Crusaders is reduced by 75% (multiplicative), except for Emo Werewolf, whose DPS is increased by 25% (multiplicative). Reach area 750!

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Halloween Jeweled Chests, which you can earn from objectives 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 the Tier 2 and 3 Crusaders will only appear in all-tier chests once you've unlocked the respective Crusader. You can select the tier of chest you buy in the shop.

You'll have until Tuesday, November 7th at Noon PST to complete Emo's New Moon this year!

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!

Emo's New Moon 2016 

Halloween is here! It always makes Emo reflective on the time he was in ghoul school. Relive his memories as he tells you the tale of what makes him emo, and tackle the 2016 edition of Emo's New Moon event!

Revisit the halls of his old school and the neighbourhood he used to call home, as you help to defeat the ghouls and haunts of his past. Don't be frightened; you're likely to survive.

Tier 1 Information

If it's your first time playing through our spooktacular Halloween event, or if you are finishing up Tier 1 to unlock the Tier 2, you get to tackle these objectives in order to move on. The requirements needed to start them are listed in the brackets.
  • Moonrise With Emo (100 Candies): Recruit Wendy the Witch while she debuffs adjacent Crusaders for each monster on the screen. Wendy swaps with Prince Sal, and once she's on your team, she gets DPS from having monsters on screen.



    Wendy the Witch

  • Bring Forth the Pumpkin (700 Candies): Recruit Jack O'Lantern by clearing area 100 while Jack occupies a spot and increases the damage Crusaders ahead of him take. Once he's on your team, he swaps with Natalie Dragon and gets power from tanking enemies.



    Jack O'Lantern

  • Power of the Wyrd Sister (1300 Candies, 500 Idols): Survive the onslaught of ghouls by clearing area 150 with double the enemies, double the quest item requirements and enemies dropping less gold and quest items.

  • Pumpkin Spice Tanke (1900 Candies, 1000 Idols): Reach area 200 with caffeine-powered monsters who are eager to reach you and do some damage.

  • All New! Trick or Treat (2500 Candies, 1500 Idols): Get to area 250 while special Trick and Treat monsters randomly spawn, giving you an awesome treat or a nasty trick on their demise.



    Trick or Treat?


    Note: Since the Trick or Treat objective was just added this year, players who completed this event last year will need to do it prior to starting the Tier Two objectives, so be sure to save up 2,500 Candies before resetting to start the event!


Tier 2 Information

Once you've completed all of Tier 1 and have the Talent "Doing It Again" from the Talents shop, you are ready to get your fright on in the new objectives added for 2016!
  • The Scaredy-Ghoul (400 Candies): Recruit Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul to your roster by escorting him to area 300 while he occasionally gets spooked and reduces your DPS to 0.



    Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul


    Henry, the Scaredy-Ghoul just wants to be left alone curled up in a corner with his blanket, but since you're nice enough to ask, he'll lend you his DPS power. When you swap out The Washed-Up Hermit for Henry, as long as no one is directly behind him, Henry's skill Spooked boosts his DPS by a whopping 250%.

  • Research and Development (700 Candies): Who doesn't need more robots to keep them company? Recruit the Fright-O-Tron 4000 by escorting her earlier prototypes to area 300.



    Fright-O-Tron 4000


    Swapping with the Fire Phoenix, the Fright-O-Tron 4000 can't help being scary: it's how she was made. But she'll be supportive of your Crusaders when you use her. Oogy-Boogy decreases the maximum health of the monsters, and Remote Detonation has an explosive surprise for those looking to do you harm.

  • G-g-g-ghost! (2500 Candies): Reach area 400 with killer ghosts approaching your formation. Oh, and the ghosts are invincible (real ghosts can't be touched after all.)



    G-g-g-ghost!!

  • Scared to Death (2500 Candies): It's your Crusaders turn to be scared by all the death they've caused. Reach area 450 with every monster death frightening a random Crusader. When a Crusader gets scared enough, they go catatonic!

  • Halloween Hoopla (2500 Candies): The Halloween Crusaders have decided to go out and party, to get to know each other better. They've invited Bush Whacker, Khouri, Merci and Nate along for the ride, so that they can be healed while tanking and take advantage of blowing up the world when they're done. Help this party of 8 reach area 500 on your final journey of the event.
Craving more candies? Don't forget that you can use Time Warps to acquire them!

Good luck on your journey filled with haunts and frights! The event will run until Wednesday November 2nd at Noon PDT!

New Event! Superhero Spring 

The majestic city of Modern York is under attack from a host of super villains who want to subjugate the populace to their evil ways. The villains are in the process of recruiting all of the criminals, crooks, thieves and truant school kids to create an army to defeat your Crusaders.

For this new event called 'Superhero Spring,' you're going to need some superhero back-up. Shine that signal into the sky from an oversized search light and use your mobile phone to contact the other hero (because it's easier).

New Crusaders



Bat Billionaire is the mega-rich industrialist and notorious playboy who had a rather traumatic encounter with a rubber bat at Halloween. The life-changing event saw him adopt an alter ego as a mask-wearing vigilante who stalks cocktail parties and well-lit inner urban locations around Modern York to fight crime.

Metal Soldierette is a genius, billionaire, playgirl, philanthropist whose penchant for technology is matched only by her desire to use it to bash evil-doers.

Both new Crusader Superheroes can be recruited to your crime-fighting team by completing the first two objectives the Superhero Spring event.

Once in your party Bat Billionaire has some special abilities on his designer utility belt. For one thing, when you buy his level 75 update, all adjacent Crusaders get a temporary 50% DPS boost every time you use an active ability.

Another unique skill kicks in at level 150 when he unlocks the upgrade Deep Menacing Voice where-after all Crusaders affected by Alchemy take 50% less damage for it's duration.

Metal Soldierette is your new option for a tank. When unlocked at level 25, her DPS increases by 400% when she's placed at the front of the formation. At level 75 she gains the ability to self heal herself for absurd amounts, but she will eventually get overwhelmed without help from your other Crusaders.

New Objective: Bat Parking



There are three bonus objectives, as usual. Two-Faced affects the DPS of the Crusaders depending on which side of the formation they find themselves. Those on the right-hand side have their DPS increased while the left-hand side Crusaders have their DPS debuffed. These buffs swap around every few areas all the way to area 150.

Bat-Parking proves that the rich and famous are probably the biggest culprits when it comes to inconsiderate parking. The Bat Billionaire Mobile takes up five formation slots, leaving the remaining Crusaders to pick-up the slack to reach area 200.

New Objective: Stolen Hardware



Finally, the Stolen Hardware objective sees the Crusaders attacked by super-hard robots that bear an uncanny likeness to Metal Soldierrette. The party must blast their way to area 250.

Time to assemble, unite, transform and slip your underpants over your leotard, by the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth!

Big Update to Crusaders! Changes to Loot and Abilities. 


One of the best things about creating Crusaders is that we have been overwhelmed and honoured by the excellent and invested community feedback. You have all been amazing in sending us your thoughts as you've collectively spent millions of hours playing Crusaders.



We've injected awesome into to the most significant areas of the game. From today, we have changed all the gear that was deemed less than useful for everyone, made Epics more Epic, and added new Crusader abilities.

These changes will benefit ALL players both going forward AND retroactively. All your previously collected loot will get the update!

For instance, Jason, Master of Shadows now has a gold boosting item to make him as useful as Pete, the Carney. Plus, Jason has a brand new ability where his DPS will be boosted when his formation friend is being attacked. Now you can partner him with a tank character for maximum effect.



Old Bonus: +100% DPS for Detective Kaine.
New Bonus: +50% Increase for Kaine's A-Ha! Ability.


Phoenix now lives up to her billing as a creature of death and rebirth. Her Vengeful Fury ability can now trigger when any other Crusader bites the dust. Her new ability gives you the option of putting her at the back of your formation and watching as monsters kill themselves trying to get to her.

Another update to Phoenix includes the skill to grant a Max Health boost to her fellow Crusaders when they lose a comrade. This will help your remaining Crusaders stay alive longer as they battle on against the monsters and hopefully help you turn the tide!



King Reginald now buffs all Royal Crusaders, as a king should. The Princess, Prince Sal, and Thalia the Thunder King, along with any future royal Crusaders, will get a DPS boost when you've unlocked Reggie's new ability if they're in formation with him.

There's a metric ton of other changes too and the full details are in the patch notes, available in the forums.

We're looking forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback on the changes and as ever, we are always listening. Thanks for being awesome!
