Alien Invasion Day (AID) was an event running from June 30th to July 12th in 2016, from June 22nd to July 4th in 2017, and from June 28th to July 10th in 2018.

Event DescriptionEdit

2016Edit

We didn't see it coming. The reduction in budgets for NASA and space exploration meant that we took our eyes off the cosmos. The result was the aliens were able to sneak into orbit and launch a stealth attack on Earth!
"We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Alien Invasion Day!"

2017Edit

Those aliens never learn! The giant alien motherships hover into view above the freshly repainted White House, Eiffel Tower, and Big Ben. The builders in each country collectively sigh and start collecting their tools again.

At last, the thrilling sequel to last year's Alien Invasion Day event! This year's event adds two new Crusaders (Slisiblyp, the Alien Scientist and Red, the Ace Pilot) along with three other tier 2 chest objectives. Will these new Crusaders find a home in your formation, or will you banish them to the bench-cosmos? The event runs until July 4th at noon PDT, at which point Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum will show up and blow it away. Oh well.

2018Edit

Alien war. Alien war never changes. As massive motherships once again occupy our skies, it's time to take the fight to these alien overlords and cancel the apocalypse.

Those pesky aliens are creatures of habit. They're back again, with even bigger guns! Enlist the aid of a new Crusader, First Lady Betty Smithsonian, and send those cosmic conquerors packing.


New CrusadersEdit

Tier 1Edit

President Billy SmithsonianEdit

AIDIntroducingBilly

The first recruitable Crusader for this event is President Billy Smithsonian, the leader of the free world. At level 50, his 'Act of Congress' ability gives a chance for monsters to drop two quest items at once, or count as two kills.

Kizlblyp, the Alien TraitorEdit

AIDIntroducingKizlyblyp

The second recruitable Crusader for this event is Kizlblyp, the Alien Traitor. One plucky, smart-talking Navy pilot has managed to outmanoeuvre the extraterrestrial invaders. His wise-cracking aerial acrobatics enabled him to take down and capture an alien called Kizlyblyp (humans are unable to pronounce his real name without spontaneously haemorrhaging their brain. It's a thing.)

Tier 2Edit

Slisiblyp, the Alien ScientistEdit

AIDIntroducingSlisiblyp

Kizlblyp has inspired another Crusader to leave Team Alien. Slisibyp, the Alien Scientist, has decided that joining the Crusaders will provide better opportunities for human experimentation. Once recruited, Slisblyp unlocks Symbiosis which enables her to absorb 15% of non-adjacent heroes DPS and convert it to Click Damage. At level 300, her ability Slimy makes clicked enemies move slower for 5 seconds which is renewed for each click.

Red, the Ace PilotEdit

AIDIntroducingRed

The second new Tier 2 Crusader is Red, the Ace Pilot, an awesome support Crusader who can provide cover for the Crusaders in front of her.

At level 50, Red unlocks Cover; her ability increases damage done against enemies who are attacking Crusaders adjacent to or in front of her by 25%. Red unlocks Call for Backup which increases the effect of Cover by 25% for each enemy attacking her (additive for each attacking enemy, then multiplicative with the effect of Cover).

Tier 3Edit

First Lady Betty SmithsonianEdit

AIDIntroducingFirstLady

First Lady Betty Smithsonian is a badass human Crusader buffer. Nobody can motivate troops or empower Crusader behaviour quite like her. The magnitude of her buff is increased by having certain tags in the formation.

At level 100, Rally the Troops increases the DPS of other humans next to the First Lady, and this bonus is increase by her other abilities (such as Human Will) for humans, females, and support Crusaders in the formation.
