Patriot Event in EBA 
Tags: event, eba.

Hi Breakers!

It's coming up on Canada Day for us here in Developer HQ and Independence Day for our neighbours across the strait, so the Patriot Monkey is back! He needs your help to throw the most Patriotic North American party ever! It's time help him grab supplies and decorate!

Start playing the Patriot Monkey by earning Patriot Tokens from any of your open Monkeys and then clicking on him to enter his zone. Earn Patriot Gold in his special stages by whacking eggs while the Patriot Buff is on (it increases your chances for gold and multipliers!)

Earn progress for the event and unlock the higher stages by spending that Patriot Gold to decorate your scene:
  • Click the "Decorate Your Scene" window to head out to the party.

  • Click the "$" button at the lower right of the screen to access the decoration store.
  • The first 6 items are the Normal items. Buy any combo of 10 of these to unlock the Silver breaking stage and decorations.
  • The next 6 items are the Silver items. Buy any combo of 20 of these prizes to move onto the Gold stage and decorations.
  • The last set of items are the Gold items. Purchase any 40 to earn the highest ribbon and the event trophy!

We've tweaked the costs of the decorations and the drop rate of the tokens. Let us know what you think!

There are 5 additional Extras you can trade Patriot Tokens for:
From 2013:
Firework Hammer: Small increased chance to win stars.
(Cost: 5000 event tokens)

From 2014:
Burger Hat: 50% more Monkey Break Tokens.
(Cost: 5000 event tokens)

New For 2015:
Canada Hammer: Small increased chance to win Multipliers.
(Cost: 2500 event tokens)

USA Hammer: Small increased chance to win Stars.
(Cost: 2500 event tokens)

Commonwealth Hammer: Boosts Less Nothings.
(Cost: 2500 event tokens)

These items are found in the Patriot Monkey's store on the egg breaking screen, not to be confused with the "Decorate Your Scene" store when you first enter the monkey.

The Patriot event will run until Wednesday July 8th at Noon PDT!

Celebrate your patriot plans on the forums!

To kick off the event, we're having a sale! Pick up 500 Patriot Tokens and 500 Hammers for only $5! And you can buy it up to 5 times! The sale will run until Friday June 26th at Noon PDT.

If you don't want to play the event, you don't have to. The Patriot Tokens just replace Nothing wins. You can enter the Patriot monkey without using tokens and buy Patriot crates full of goodies from his store with any tokens you do collect.

Father's Day Mini Quest 
Posted in Bush Whacker 2.

Hi Whackers!

Nate enjoyed having your help so much with his Mother's Day brunch that he's asking you to do him another favor. He's looking for the perfect Father's Day gift, and he could really use your help! Come to think of it, his Father could use some help too!

Talk to him in front of the General Store in the Commons to get started!

The quest will run until Monday June 22 at Noon PDT.

We're also running three new Seed Packs over the weekend. The seeds in these packs award large amounts of energy, gold, or even rune dust when you harvest them! They're GREAT deals if you need a little bit more energy to complete the Father's Day quests!

See you on the forums.

Explorers' League Event! 
Posted in Shards of Titan.

Hi Shards Fans! It's event time!

A league of Explorers have set up their base camp in the event zone and invited you to come along while they investigate a Forest shard that has drifted nearby.

Venture through the various regions collecting items for all the Explorers' quests to turn in for Explorer League Credits to buy a selection of quest or reward items from the Quartermaster.

When you finish a quest, you can warp back to the camp to turn it in to the relevant character by clicking on the quest in the tracker on the left of the screen.

Talk to the expedition leader to send supplies you've gathered through the gate and reset the repeatable quests to complete them again. This ability is available every 4 hours.

Each region resets every 8 hours, or you can buy a Monster Lure or use Shardium to reset a region if you're looking to continue collecting everything right away.

If you happen to close the game while you're in the event, you'll return to the event region where you last were.

And keep your eyes open for possible secrets the shards could hold.

The event will run until Thursday July 2nd at Noon PDT and trinkets and towers will be awarded then.

Talk about it on the forums!
