COTLI: Merci's Mix-Up 4 

The life of a Mad Wizard is a lonely one, and for Merci the Mad Wizard it is lonelier than most. This year, Merci has a plan — one sure to mend his own loneliness through the power of Love Magic!

But it appears Merci has miscalculated, accidentally opening a portal to Super Love Land — and the dangers beyond... Merci's Mix-Up 4 introduces Ishtar the Fire Queen, and brings back Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, and Frankie the Demon Crooner! The romance comes to a finish on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at 12:00PM PT!!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Ishtar the Fire Queen

Legends tell of Ishtar the Fire Queen, a supernatural fertility demon who knows just how to get the most out of each and every Crusader in her formation.

Ishtar's Fertile Thoughts increase Global DPS and her Starlight increases the potency of angels and demons. Her allure knows little bounds, as she is able to attract Fire Sprites that increase Gold Find and speed up quest progress.

Female Crusaders who follow Ishtar will see improvements to their DPS, as long as they don't become too close, and when Ishtar tells Whispered Stories, Global DPS increases for every Royal Crusader in the formation. Don't worry if you cannot find enough Royal Crusaders to boost your formation, for the glorious Ishtar is able to elevate worthy Crusaders to royalty — provided they first become close to The Fire Queen...

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Rocky the Rockstar, Sally the Succubus, Warwick the Warlock, Katie the Cupid, and Frankie the Demon Crooner are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Ishtar | Ishtar the Fire Queen starts in the formation. Meteors randomly strike the formation, and if Ishtar dies, you'll need to restart the Area. Reach area 600.

  • I Put a Cantrip on You | Only The Bush Whacker, Nate Dragon, and the Crusaders from Merci's Mix-Up are available. Additional blue and green monsters spawn; killing the blue monster will cost Crusaders half their health, while killing the green one will improve Global DPS for 15 seconds. Reach area 700.

  • Fly Me to the Stars | Three 'Stars' occupy slots in the formation, changing positions every 75 Areas. Each Star disables the DPS and formation abilities of adjacent Crusaders who are not an angel, demon, supernatural, magical, royalty, or a dragon. Reach area 750.

  • My Funny Valentine Candy | Heart Candies spawn at random and are very difficult to kill. Each Heart Candy disables a random Crusader in the formation while it is alive. Reach area 800.

  • Moon Dancing | The night is dark and the moon illuminates only two Crusaders at a time. Only the illuminated Crusaders are able to do DPS. Taskmasters are disabled. Reach area 850.


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, and Tier 4 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, February 26, 2019 at 12:00PM PST to complete Merci's Mix-Up 4!

COTLI: Carnage Cup 4 

Put on those cleats and pads, and maybe a mouth guard and helmet, too — the biggest event of the year in CrusaderSports™ is here: CARNAGE CUP 4!!

This year's contenders are exciting to behold, perhaps none so than the newest Crusader to take to the field, a Half-Dwarf/Half-Orc powerhouse by the name of Nargulg Granitehand. Yes folks, you read that right: Granitehand. This guy has been training his whole life for a chance to compete in the most chaotic event in CrusaderSports™, and he's here to win.

GET READY FOR CARNAGE CUP TIER 4!

Carnage Cup 4 introduces Nargulg Granitehand, and brings back Groklok the Orc, Drizzle the Dark Elf, Karl the Kicker, Cindy the Cheer-Orc, and Griz the Robo-Coach! The carnage comes to a close on Tuesday, February 5, 2019 at 12:00PM PT, so make sure to unlock and gear up Nargulg and the rest of the squad before then!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Nargulg Granitehand

    Nargulg small for Orc. But Nargulg big for Dwarf.
    Nargulg loves chaos! Nargulg loves fight!
    Crusaders like murder. Crusaders like Carnage Cup.
    Nargulg join Crusaders!
    Nargulg win Carnage Cup!

Nargulg Granitehand is a Half-Dwarf/Half-Orc Crusader, who managed to draw all the anger and fury from both races into a single muscular body of destruction. He increases Click Damage for every Dwarf Crusader and Orc Crusader in the formation, with Nargulg counting twice because he's both!

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock previous Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 Crusaders by completing their respective objectives. Groklok the Orc, Drizzle the Dark Elf, Karl the Kicker, Cindy the Cheer-Orc, and Griz the Robo-Coach are all once again available to unlock!

New Tier 4 Objectives

  • Recruit Nargulg Granitehand | Nargulg Granitehand and Jim the Lumberjack start in the formation. Click Damage and Task Masters are disabled. Monsters randomly spawn that are able to instantly kill a Crusader upon reaching the formation. Reach area 600.

  • Revenge of the Cheerleaders | A Cheerleader from Hell starts in the formation, disabling the Formation Abilities of adjacent Crusaders. Every 150 Areas another Cheerleader from Hell appears. Reach area 700.

  • Crowds are Contagious | One rowdy fan takes up a slot in the formation, intent on infecting the other Crusaders. Five Virus Clouds move around the formation, disabling Crusader DPS and Formation Abilities. While moving the Virus Clouds have no effect. Reach area 750.

  • Concession Time! | Various concession snacks attack the formation, each with their own annoying effects. These concession snacks survive for at least three seconds and spawn more quickly the more spawn speed you have. Reach area 800.

  • Raging Dates of Death | Three escorts take up spaces in the formation. You need to keep the formation even in genders of Crusaders or else a Crusader dies every five seconds. Reach area 850.


Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Carnage Cup 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.
