Believe me you don’t want grab these guys by their Chinny Chin Chins!!! Why? Well because they’re nuts!!!
With that out-of-the-way lets slip on some latex….. gloves and chat about how to deal with the Ballchinians that have invaded our towns. Just don’t go asking them why the long face.
WHEN DO THE BALLCHINIANS APPEAR?
At the Main Questline, The New Black Pt 2, you will trigger a side Questline entitled Combat Ready this will bring the Ballchinians to Quahog.
Tapping on GO at Learn About Combat will bring up the Battle For Quahog information box which will give you a lot less information than I’m about to. Although when it comes to discussing Ballchinians just knowing anything is probably TMI..
WHERE DO BALLCHINIANS APPEAR?
They appear on the Sidewalks/Edge of Sidewalks of the Quahog road patches, so look near all your roads to locate them.
Now it is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL for you to remove your Roads from your town to keep the Ballchinians to one area, just know that the less you have out in the open, the less time you will spend searching for Ballchinians.
I had a bunch of them appear in my Quahog as soon as I had triggered Combat Ready, and it would appear they max out at 8. As you clear them new ones will spawn but I doubt you’ll ever run out of Ballchinians.
WHAT DO YOU NEED TO BATTLE BALLCHINIANS?
You’ll need 1 Arrest Warrants for every Battle you want to start with a Ballchinian.
Arrest Warrant (Uncommon): Secret Weapons Room OR Mort Put Up Wanted Posters OR Jerome Hunt Bounty OR Agent Pee Peter Push Paper
***NOTE: The Character Tasks will NOT show up until you unlock one of the Characters you need for the Battles, like Zed, Agent Pee, & the Worms or reach Part 5 of the Main Questline.
WHAT CHARACTERS CAN BATTLE BALLCHINIANS?
You have the option to select 1 of your available Characters to Battle a Ballchinian. You will just need to make sure they are available, unlocked, and not in the healing process. These are the characters you can use.
WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE CAN EACH CHARACTER DO?
The 3 Characters that can Battle Ballchinians each have their own Hit Power, Health, and % Chance they will deliver a knockout blow during a Battle and completely take their opponent out. Remember you can also Miss and do no damage.
Hit Power: 4
% Chance: 20% Chance
Hit Power: 4
% Chance: 30% Chance
Hit Power: 6
% Chance: 30% Chance
WHY CAN’T I SELECT MY CHARACTER?
There can be a couple of reasons you are unable to SELECT a Character to go to Battle.
BUSY: If the Character you want to use is on a Task elsewhere in the game, you will see the word BUSY and a GET Icon next to them. If they are on a Task, tapping GET will take you to them and ask if you want to finish that Task right away for Clams.
NOT UNLOCKED: If you have not Clam Purchased a Character or you are still collecting Materials in the game to Unlock a Character, they will also show up with a Lock Icon and a GET Icon next to them. You will need to continue earning their Required Materials & Unlock them in order to use them for Battle.
HEALING: After a Character’s Health is dropped to Zero, they go through a Healing Process (Currently 8hrs). While they are Healing, you can’t use them to Battle.
HOW LONG WILL CHARACTERS HEAL?
The Current Healing time frame I am seeing on the Characters that dropped to Zero Health after a Battle is 8hrs.
You will see a HEAL Icon next to them in the Battle Screen along with a timer showing you how much longer you will have to wait before being able to Revive them.
CAN I HEAL CHARACTERS FASTER?
YES. If you want to speed up the Healing Process and want your Healing Character to Battle again immediately, you can tap on the HEAL Icon and use either Clams or a Revive Potion to give them their full strength back instantly. Whichever method you choose the Game will ask you if you are sure you want to go ahead.
If you have purchased any revive potions you will see this message. If you want to use a revive potion simply click YES. You’ll find more on your Revive Potion options in the next section.
If you haven’t purchased any revive potions you will see this message.
If you wish to spend 72 clams for a one-off Heal imply click YES. But bear in mind this isn’t the most cost-effective method. As if you purchase any of the revive packs, the clam cost per Heal will be cheaper. For example the 3 revive potions pack costs 150 Clams, so that works out at 50 Clams per Heal.
There is a Revive Potion Icon above the Characters in the Battle Screen that will show your current available count of Revive Potions.
Currently, these are only available as a Clam Purchase option apart from the free on you receive for completing a Questline part. You will find them in your Shopping Cart to buy. More options may open up in the future.
x3 Revive Capsules: 150
x8 Revive Capsules: 340
x15 Revive Capsules: 600
WHAT KIND OF DAMAGE CAN BALLCHINIANS DO?
Remember Ballchinians will be battling back against your Character. They also have a Health, Hit Power, and Chance of dealing Knockout Blows (though it is an unknown %). They can also Miss with an attack.
Hit Power: 4
% Chance: UNKNOWN
WHAT KIND OF REWARDS CAN I GET FROM BATTLING BALLCHINIANS?
The Rewards you will receive will depend on whether you WIN (NEURALIZED) the Battle or simply DAMAGE the Ballchinian during the Battle.
These are the kind of Rewards I saw in my game. Keep in mind some rewards may only show when a Character, such as the Worms is placed in your game for unlocking.
WIN Chance Payout:
+26 Galaxy Marbles
+1 Luxury Cigar
+ 10 Alien Slime
+10 MIB Badges
+2 Extra Strong Spray
A Winning Battle means that you dropped the Ballchinian’s Health to Zero, even if your Character is wiped out in the process too.
ATTACK OVER Payout:
+5 Alien Slime
+2 MIB Badges
An Attack Over Battle means you were not able to get the Ballchinian’s Health to Zero before your Character’s health was fully depleted.
HOW DO I START A BATTLE?
Simply find a Ballchinian and tap on him and his Battle Screen will open up.
Then Select your Character to Battle the Ballchinians. (You can UNSELECT a Character if you change your mind)
You will need 1 Arrest Warrant for Each Battle. Once you have selected your Character AND if you have at least ONE Arrest Warrant, then you will see the Button under the Ballchinian’s Image light up green with BATTLE. Tap on it to Start the Battle.
Once a battle is underway you can only sit back and watch, you can’t influence the Battle, you might simply damage the Ballchinian, you might miss the Ballchinian,or you might knockout the Ballchinian, and the Ballchinians can do any of the same to you. You will know how strong each hit is by the RED NUMBER that floats up to their Health Bar after each hit.
Once the Battle is complete, the Reward Screen will appear showing you if you won or not and what Materials you will be Rewarded. To win you must have depleted the Ballchinian’s Health to 0. If you did that you will see the Neutralized Screen, showing your rewards.
if you miss him or merely damage his health you’ll see the Attack Over screen giving you the option to fight again immediately if you have 1 Arrest Warrant and a Character available.
Tapping Fight Again will bring you up the following box, simply tap YES to go straight back into battle. However if you don’t have an Arrest Warrant or Character available don’t worry you can go back and Attack the same Ballchinian later, more on that next.
HOW DO I ATTACK A PREVIOUSLY DAMAGED BALLCHINIAN?
If you couldn’t immediately Fight Again due to not having an Arrest Warrant or your Character needing to heal then once your ready to Battle again you’ll want to find the same Ballchinian you previously damaged. To do this look for the Ballchinian with the reduced health status floating above his head.
