COTLI: Nate's Candy Conundrum 4 

Good mythical morning! Not again! Nate's devious antics have landed your Crusaders in yet another sugar-coated parallel world. Will you conquer it in time and recruit new friends? Find out as you face down the sweet fiends in Nate's Candy Conundrum 4!

The Nate's Candy Conundrum 4 event runs until Tuesday, April 30th at Noon PDT. For more information, check out the How to Play /FAQ in-game!

New Tier 4 Crusader: Bridget the Painter

That heavenly laughter you hear? That's the sound of your new friend Bridget the Painter as she makes friends with everyone in your formation and paints them with good cheer. Plus, she'll increase the DPS of the Crusaders in front of her based on how many Good Crusaders are in the formation.

Note: Bridget is a wizard with her paint brush and she knows how to use it.

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. Alan the Archangel, RoboRabbit, Baenarall, Angel of Hope, Sisaron the Dragon Sorceress and Biff the Magic Rabbit are ready and raring to go, once you unlock them!

Five New Tier 4 Objectives!

  • Recruit Bridget the Painter | Reach area 600 with angels leading the way. Bridget takes up a slot in the formation and only Angel Crusaders will be able to deal DPS.

  • Spring is Sprung | Reach area 700 while only using the Crusaders from Nate's Candy Conundrum.

  • Chicken Rabbits | Reach area 750 while the Chicken Rabbits attack. And no, those aren't rabbits that are chicken. These tough monsters take extra time to kill, but while they're alive Chocolate Egg monsters will spawn. Chocolate Eggs drop extra gold, and always count towards quest progress when you kill them.

  • What's that Smell? | Reach area 800 with spoiled eggs. Four eggs take up spots in the formation and start out by providing good buffs to your Crusaders, but as you go deeper their rotten natures are revealed.

  • Which Came First? | Reach area 850 while solving an age-old question. Chicken and Dino monsters spawn at random. Chickens make Eggs, which make dinos, which make eggs, which make chickens, forever and ever!

Help! Where’s the Loot?

Equipment for event Crusaders can be found in Silver and Jeweled Easter 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 have until Tuesday, April 30th, 2019 at 12:00PM Pacific to complete Nate's Candy Conundrum 4!

Upgraded Buffs! 


Introducing New Buffs

Over the past few weeks we've received a lot of feedback from players regarding clicking related buff cards found in chests. Based upon this feedback, we decided to replace a couple of the clicking related buff cards in the game with different, and hopefully more interesting, buff cards. This week we ran a poll in-game to gather additional feedback, and based upon that and our own internal discussions we've made a few changes to the buff cards in-game:



The buff cards that used to increase your Critical Click Damage Multiplier now increase Monster Spawn Speed instead. This new buff type allows you to progress through easier levels much, much faster, though it's efficacy trails off as you're no longer able to quickly kill your enemies. We expect this buff to be prized by players attempting to speed through the first hundred levels or so of a reset.



The buff cards that used to multiply your Base Click Damage now cause a percentage of your DPS to hit all active enemies. This new buff type allows you to mow through large groups of enemies with a much higher efficiency. The more enemies on your screen, the higher the effectiveness of this buff, assuming you don't get overrun. We expect this buff to be useful in giving you that extra boost you need to overcome a difficult boss encounter.



The buff cards the used to increase your Critical Click Chance now also increase your Critical Click Damage Multiplier. This card absorbed the effect from one of the cards that had its effect replaced, making it much more powerful as it buffs two important clicking stats at once.

Overall we hope that the changes make the consumable buff cards feel a little more powerful and thus a little more desirable, such that an otherwise exciting chest opening won't be spoiled by a buff card you'll never use.

FAQ

How exactly do the new Spawn Speed buff cards work?

The Spawn Speed buff cards increase the velocity at which new monsters appear on screen. If you're quickly killing monsters as they spawn, this means that they'll be attackable much sooner after they've appeared. These buff cards do not decrease the time between wave spawns if you are unable to kill a wave before the next one appears.

How exactly do the new Splash Damage buff cards work?

A percentage of your total DPS will be applied to all attackable monsters on the screen. Your total DPS will still attack the front-most enemy. This buff does not affect clicked damage, but does stack with DPS increasing buffs.

What happens to the old buff cards I had?

All of your Critical Click Damage Multiplier buff cards will be replaced 1-to-1 with Spawn Speed buff cards. All of your Click Damage Multiplier buff cards will be replaced 1-to-1 with Splash Damage buff cards. All of your Critical Click Chance buff cards now also increase your Critical Click Damage Multiplier.

Don't the Spawn Speed buff cards make speed run objectives/achievements trivial?

Yup, we thought of it. Speed based objectives disable the Spawn Speed buff cards so you can't use them while on the objective, and using a Spawn Speed buff card during a run will invalidate you from earning the current speed based achievement. Look for special restrictions/caveats on achievements and objectives in the future for specific details on which buffs are allowed.
