COTLI: Carnage Cup 2018 

The ultimate sport returns — it's time for another Carnage Cup! Grab your gear and head out to the stadium for another annual tailgate party. Lets see where it all leads us this time...

The Carnage Cup 2018 event runs until Tuesday, February 6th at Noon PST. For more information, check out the How to Play /FAQ in-game!

New Tier 3 Crusader: Griz the Robo-Coach

Griz the Robo-Coach is an aging, grizzled, robotic coach, who motivates everyone in front of him based on how far from him they are. Griz is also very old and may be slightly falling apart...

Crusaders Return

If you haven't collected them already, you can unlock our Tier One Crusaders Drizzle the Dark Elf and Groklok the Orc by completing the respective Tier One objectives. Then, you can collect the Tier Two Crusaders, Cindy the Cheer-Orc and Karl the Kicker, by completing the first two Tier Two objectives!

Five New Tier 3 Objectives!

  • Recruit Griz the Robo-Coach | Griz takes up a slot in the formation and reduces the DPS of all Crusaders. The amount of the reduction is based on their distance away from Griz. Reach area 500 with his special coaching to recruit him.

  • The Professionals | Only the Bush Whacker, Nate Dragon, and Carnage Cup Crusaders (Groklok, Drizzle, Karl, Cindy, and Griz) can be used. Reach area 600.

  • Offside Play | The middle column is taken up by various Defenders. All Crusaders in front of them have their Formation Abilities disabled, and all Crusaders behind them have their DPS disabled. Reach area 650.

  • Hot Potato | Three footballs move between slots in the formation. Whoever is in a slot containing a football has their DPS and Formation abilities disabled. Reach area 700.

  • Tailgate Party | A pickup truck takes up the front few slots. When it's destroyed your formation is pushed back. Reach area 750.

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Carnage Cup Silver and Jeweled 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 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, February 6th at Noon PST to complete Carnage Cup this season!

Idle Champions Event: Midwinter 
Posted in Idle Champions.

It's Deadwinter Day in Longsaddle. While most folks are warm in their homes exchanging gifts and celebrating the midpoint of winter with friends and family, your party has been tasked by the infamous Harpells with patrolling the outskirts of town to protect against ne'er-do-wells.

Not wanting you to get bored, the Harpells have helpfully summoned a magical trickster to keep your day fun and interesting. Unfortunately it looks like they might have messed up and summoned a much more powerful foe than intended, so now you've got a real Midwinter problem on your hands...

Midwinter is the sixth limited-time event for Idle Champions, which runs from today until 12:00pm PST on Monday, February 5th, 2018, and introduces Regis, the Halfling Rogue!

New Champion: Regis

As a poor urchin on the streets of Calimport, Regis quickly learned that survival often requires bending the rules in your favor. He fled to the north to avoid capture after stealing his former master’s magical ruby pendant. Eventually, he found companionship amongst the Companions of the Hall, becoming one of Bruenor Battlehammer’s most trusted confidants. Bruenor was the one who gifted Regis with the nickname “Rumblebelly” due to the halfling’s insatiable appetite.

Regis would prefer nothing more than to relax in the sun with a full belly near his home in Ten-Towns and fish for knucklead trout, the source of all of his scrimshaw carvings. But when his friends need help, Regis is always there for them. He never sees himself as the hero, even though his true friends know better.

When you want to add Regis to your party, you can swap him with Celeste.

Midwinter Variants

  • Deadwinter Date — You've been tasked with escorting two young Harpell wards on a date during your adventure. They take up slots and are otherwise pretty useless.

  • Deadwinter Fey — A large number of sprites and pixies spawn with each wave of enemies (not during boss areas). These extra monsters do not drop gold, and when killed they sprinkle a random Champion with pixie dust. Any champion that is sprinkled with 10 Pixie dust has their DPS and Formation Abilities disabled. Pixie dust stacks reset when you change areas.

  • Deadwinter Pay (-back) — Every time you defeat an enemy (in a non-boss area) your Champions take 10% unavoidable damage. Champions adjacent to Regis take one third of that damage while Regis himself is immune.

Features:

  • Added the Midwinter event, our sixth limited-time campaign event! The event will run until Monday, February 5th at noon PST.
  • Added a new Champion: Regis, the Halfling Rogue.
  • Added a new event Divine Favor: Auril's Favor.
