January 1, 2005

  • Signups for Carnage Blender 2 are open. Most of the community of Carnage Blender 1 (CB1) signs up and checks if the game is good.
  • The game brings lots of changes, with Tattoos, some having Familiars that act like an extra minon, meaning lots of additional strategy possibilities.
  • The Jigorokano Familiar was CB2's first supporter item. A Familiar that damages your opponent with the Unarmed Combat (UC) skill.
  • Thrakattack becomes first player to reach 1,000 Score, 3 hours and 40 minutes after CB2 opens, with his character Nonborn King.

January 6, 2005

  • SNK3R becomes 1st player to top $1,000,000 in CB2 referral bonuses.

January 9, 2005

The first day the New User Bonus (NUB) came into effect--it was made for new players to catch up with veterans.


January 10, 2005

Jonathan announces the re-enabling of the Mentor program after the initial signups of CB1 members to CB2, which would be seen as non-newbies. On January 11th the first Mentors sign up and are ready to Mentor the new coming players.


January 14, 2005

January 21, 2005

Steve_G becomes 1st to reach 100k MPR


March 19, 2005

Introduction of the second supporter item, the Mage Shield (MgS). This shield protects the wearer from magic damage.


April 1, 2005

This is the first time Jonathan hasn't been able to make an April fool's joke for the community, the exact reason why is still unknown.


May 13, 2005

Jonathan links Net Worth (NW) to the Power (PR) calculations that are used for fighting rewards. The change is made to make fighting a bit more balanced. This change is very controversial to most people and to many of them very unwanted. But after a long while every player, except for the newest of new players, has grown used to this system and accept it.

May 16, 2005

Introduction of the third supporter item, the Vorpal Blade (VB). This weapon slices through the defenses of your opponents.


May 24, 2005

The Apocalypse Book, a Character belonging to Ranger, Created January 01, 2005, managed to reach the milestone of 1 million Score:

Score / PR / MPR: 1,000,008 / 713,961 / 426,070


May 28, 2005

The first official Quarter Blender (QB) for Carnage Blender 2 has been announced and the winner is Ranger.


July 27, 2005

Introduction of new supporter item, Rune of Enlightenment (RoE).

The Rune of Enlightenment is a Tattoo that transfers experience to its owner; specifically, roughly 2/3 of the XP a normal Tattoo would earn.

September 4, 2005

Jonathan announces the end of camping. Rare items stop spawning in stores and instead go directly to auctions with no buy now. Camping, Forging, and Fighting was seen as the three major activities of Carnage Blender. The loss of camping was, therefore, a very controversial change. The change was made because some people were cheating by automating part of the camping process. On a more positive note, people no longer had to spend BA in order to visit the stores.

Notable campers at the time: Sefton, Spaceman

October 7, 2005

October 31, 2005

The Apocalypse Book, a Character belonging to Ranger, Created January 01, 2005, managed to reach the milestone of 1 million Minion Power (MPR):

Score / PR / MPR: 2,277,024 / 1,866,770 / 1,001,758


November 2, 2005

Jonathan announces the introduction of the New Character Bonus (NCB). Now everyone has a chance to make it to the top ranks by the end of the NCB.


November 28, 2005

Introduction of new supporter item, Trollskin Armor (TSA).

Gives a bonus to strength (ST), and resistance to Direct Damage spells.

December 27, 2005

Jonathan announces the permanent closure of CB1, ending, among other things, the CB1 to CB2 cash ratio.


Things to do:

  • Jan 1 needs more data, will do soon I hope.
  • Add first character to be 500k mpr?
  • Add first character to go over 2 mil score ?
  • Add character/Minion with most AC?
  • Need to expand the list of notable campers.
