WallaBash 2019 Recap!

It’s officially been two weeks since WallaBash 2019, and though the weather is changing here in Texas, our memories of the third annual player event haven’t faded with the summer heat! Whether you attended the event and want to revisit some fond memories, or you couldn’t make the trip to North Texas and want to see what it was all about, our WallaBash recap can fill you in on the details!

Who was there?

Product Manager Robbie and Lead Illustrator Andy reunited with dozens of players for a WallaFamily reunion! And, of course, it wouldn’t be a real reunion without Benson (and Mizak of ItemBrowser!) making appearances!

What did we do?

Players and staff alike had the chance to join in for some WallaBee fun! On the social side that included catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, and finally turning usernames and profile pictures into real-life faces! WallaBee activities included in-game jousting, plenty of photo ops, and of course, trivia!

Unfortunately, no one shared images with us on social media using the #WallaBash2019 hashtag, so we don’t have any photos from the worldwide community to share. Better luck next year!

Were there prizes?

WallaBee Passports and free passport stickers were given to commemorate the weekend festivities for those in attendance. Though the staff didn’t appear in medieval garb, our cartoon personas were dressed to impress with medieval-themed costumes!

A special Achievement and Player Award were also randomly distributed to those in attendance!

Special WallaBash 2019 stickers were in line with the Medieval weekend theme

Weekend Wrap-up!

WallaBash, of course, coincides with Munzee’s annual Bash, which was MedZEEval Times themed this year. The WallaBee team joined the rest of Freeze Tag in the “Storm the Castle” Eventzee fun run on Sunday morning to wrap up a weekend full of item drops, friendly talks, and player fun!

Andy and Robbie are stationed at “Storm the Castle” on September 29, 2019 during Bash weekend’s conclusion

WallaBash Weekend Details!

Hello Collectors,

This weekend is WallaBash! We have a great time planned alongside Munzee in celebrating our worldwide community, whether or not you’re hanging out with us in person!

A new set is coming to town! Be on ye guard for a medieval-themed set that is, well, interesting. We can honestly say we’ve never done a set like this, so hold on tight! Benyson the Serf is looking to move up in the world. Will you help him socially advance?

Have you seen the fun Coat of Arms BAU items? Our community has done a great job of creating some very unique crests. Speaking of crests, we have a new Themed Exclusive subset coming this weekend to highlight Freeze Tag, Munzee, Eventzee, and of course, WallaBee!

Benson will even be there to snap a photo with you at WallaBash! Our worldwide players can take part in the fun by printing out the same props (outside of Benson) or by finding similar items in real life! Don’t forget to share your memories with us on social with #WallaBash2019.

WallaBee 2.2.7 Notes

Hello Collectors!

Version 2.2.7 is now available for iOS and Android! The team has been working diligently to make your playing experience better with every update. If there is a feature you would like to see, or a pesky bug that we have yet to address, we would love to hear from you! Remember to email support with any concerns.

Features

  • Collectibles: Search/Sorting/Reordering
  • Pouch: Search/Sorting/Reordering
    • Long-press for item menu
  • Favorite items (all items; limit 12)
  • Foraging screen reimplemented
  • Adjusted speed of star on item created/found pages
  • Fixed an issue with store showing the incorrect image during drop
  • Minor performance improvements and bug fixes

Collectibles: Search/Sorting/Reordering

Players can search, organize, and sort their items in every set and subset of the Collectibles section of the app.

Pouch: Search/Sorting/Reordering

Search by item name, number, and status (Locked, Market, Trade)!

Move items in your pouch by utilizing the Move Mode button! Sort items automatically based on Alphabetical (ascending), Number (ascending), and item created (oldest at the top).

Long-press an item to access the context menu from the pouch! This will save you lots of time!

Items that have requirements to open (Wishing Well) will now only show their extra options when the requirements are met.

Favorite Items

Players can mark any saved item as a Favorite by toggling the heart icon while viewing the item. We are limiting this feature to 12 items per player, with the possibility of this number growing in the future.

View the item from its set or the Favorites section to remove it from your Favorites.

Foraging Screen Update

We’ve brought back a familiar screen, but with a twist! Players will now see Benson’s magnifying glass move about the screen in order to find honeycombs and items when foraging! Adding this screen allows us to reduce the number of API calls made to the server, increasing performance during peak times.

 


Known Issues

We will update this list and the known issues

  • Locked items still show the old icon (header updated).
  • Store items sometimes show an incorrect set icon.

Any additional questions, comments, concerns? Email: support@wallabeegame.com
If the App Store doesn’t show an update for you, please use the links above. If messaging is not showing correctly through your profile or another player’s profile, browsing cache may need to be cleared.

Unique Spotlight – WI Home of the Burger

Hamburger Charlie Nagreen, who claimed to have invented the sandwich (and coined its name) in Seymour, WI in 1885.

Owner: Frostitute

How To Get: The first way is to attend an event in WI where WallaBee is featured or a coexist event with Munzee. The second way will be by completing a quiz, which will be available in the near future. Watch the forum for updates.

Meaning: I wanted to give something special to players who are able to attend our first ever WallaBee event in WI. There is an annual birthday luau for Munzee. This year we are featuring a WallaBee event after our luau: “Wallaloha.” Your first opportunity to acquire this unique will be on July 20th or Sept 21st in Wisconsin.

Which number Unique is this for you? This is my first commissioned unique. I am so excited and over the moon with how well it turned out. I definitely have plans to add more uniques highlighting small town WI.

Closing Thoughts: How do you take your burger? Plain, just ketchup, with everything…
