Hello. I was trying to get the Chumba Wumba badge on my Privateer, L50. Previously, I had defeated Chumba Wumba 2/3. I defeated him twice yesterday, and the badge still says 2/3.

Just thought I'd let you know!

I had this exact same issue on my lvl 11 Witchdoctor.

I think you need to defeat him 3 times in a single battle.

Try defeating him 3 times in the same fight - just don't destroy his totems until you've beaten him 3 times. That's how I got the badge.

This wont help my friend QueQueg but i've learned when tackling this guy, just kill him twice before you take out the totems, and you'll get credit for 3 defeats.... (3rd defeat being destroying totems) instant Tubthumper badge!!!

Is this going to be fixed in the near future? I really want to buy Oingo Boingo as my first mate.

I know when fixes are added to the game, sometimes something else gets messed up a bit.

I'm trying to complete all the badges, so I'll work on the others, and check and see if any of those might be bugged as well.

At least I'm not the only one!

Actually, in both the battles I did, Chumba was defeated no less than 4 times before I had a chance to destroy the totems. Wagyu and Keisuke went to town on him every time he appeared (that was fun to watch).

I'll try it again, and try to rein in the "boys" so they don't pummel Chumba so much.

I just tried to get this badge last night on my Lv 50 Witchdoctor and knocked Chumba Down 6 times before I destroyed the totems and did not get the badge.

Any word on if it is bugged?

I haven't received a response yet. I've tried several variations with Chumba Wumba, but have yet to complete the badge.

Well, I just tried to get the badge today with my lvl 41 witchdoctor and still won't give me credit for the 3rd time.

I even entered the dungeon 3 times in a row just to see if it was a timed thing.

KI, if you are monitoring these boards... You have a glitch with this badge! I look forward to it getting fixed sometime soon.

Thanks! I noticed that broken badge, too. Can't wait to see my Hoku badge when it's fixed!

Wow i am so glad i'm not the only one having this problem. The only difference for me is that i don't even have the choice to get the badge because iI don't even have tubthumper availability in the badges, meaning that it's not even there.

I want it fixed and the next major update should be a world and that must mean it could be on the test soon.

still cannot get the chumba wumba badge. so sad. I have tried several approaches and none worked. Wonder if i had looked at this badge when I 'first' did chumba wumba maybe I would have gotten him. Pretty Please let us know when the badge bugs get fixed. Thanks, Zenobia.
