Minion Masters Friday

Minion Masters!

Introducing the Contender League

Coming in Version 1.4 is a brand new Ranked League for those that want a challenge beyond Grand Master. There'll be changes to the existing Grand Master league, where your ranking points within Grand Master are now visible on a scale of 0 to 2000. It's now possible to drop out of Grand Master, much like other ranks, and once you achieve 2000 points within Grand Master you will be promoted to the brand new Contender rank. Keep in mind that there are no Win Streaks in Grand Master and full rank loss for defeats, meaning reaching this new League will be a testament to your prowess as a true Minion Master.

While you're in Contender league, you'll receive a new icon next to your name in the in-game chat to represent your accomplishment. However, it's still possible to drop out of Contender if you lose too many matches, so stay on your toes!

The Contender League is just our first step in our ranked changes, and we have many plans for the new rank such as E-sports related interactions. This also of course comes hand in hand with our new changes to the rank roll-over being at the start of every new patch to ensure the entire season is played on the same set of balance changes.

Sharing is Caring

Starting with Version 1.4, you will also be able to buy gifts for your friends and Guildmates! Any Shop Offer item can be instead sent to a friend of your respective platform or any member of your guild, paying the usual costs. A user cannot be gifted the same Offer more than once however, and if you are gifted a Shop Offer you cannot purchase it for yourself from the store. Get out there and spread the love!

Balance Changes coming in v1.4

On top of the upcoming Sand Wars battle pass, Version 1.4 will be holding host to a number of Balance Changes we've been working on. It won't be the truly crazy roster of 20+ changes we had in Version 1.3, but some adjustments to existing cards that need an extra nudge to be effective, or perhaps a tuning down in regards to their power level. We also have a change coming to the Mythic mechanic that only allows a singular copy of a Mythic Card to be in play on your team at a time. You'll be able to read all about these Balance Changes as we get closer to the release date of Version 1.4 on the 16th of August.

That's all for today, Masters. We're super excited to bring these features and more in Version 1.4, and we're looking forward to your feedback as always!

Cheers from BetaDwarf!

Slithery (Colour) Schemes

Coming in Version 1.4 is a set of visual redesigns for the Slither faction. We wanted to craft a unique identity for the units to help set them apart from other factions such as the Empyreans by ensuring a similar color scheme and unique identifiers so that they are easier to recognise in a match. To that end, we've gone for a more Teal-based color scheme with feathers to help with the visual flair the units provide. We also wanted to help cement the Slither faction's roots in Aztec and Egyptian culture/mythology - Upcoming cards in the brand new Sand Wars Battle Pass will further indicate and explain the culture of the Slither.

Minion Masters in the Top 5 releases for May

We're a bit late to the draw, but Minion Masters was in the Top 5 games with highest playercounts during our launch in May! Steam's post here details that the support of our awesome community pushed our Peak player count above and beyond the norm. And with the content-packed update that is Version 1.4 swiftly approaching, we can't wait to see if we can smash that record again!

Deckbuilding from anywhere

The community Deckbuilding website, MM Deckbuilder recently updated to have all cards and masters up to Version 1.3! You can create decks of any kind as if you owned a full collection, with useful stat calculations such as the amount of Shards required to craft the deck, or how many of your units can hit Flying units. Once you're done crafting your perfect deck, you can share it with everyone else as well as your insights on how to play it, and have users vote on the quality of your decklist. High rated decks get pushed to the front page!

It's a fantastic site made by u/TheConcepteur on Reddit, and we highly encourage you to check it out here!

Minion Masters Fanart Comic Contest

Minion Masters!

We're starting up a new Fanart Contest for our wonderfully talented community! This time we're making the primary theme based on comics and comic strips, with that juicy 5000 Rubies prize being up for grabs once again. The rule for this contest, as you can likely deduce, is comics - All submissions must be in the format of a comic strip or page! The contents are entirely up to you, as long as it's Minion Masters related, and can cover any genre you'd like from humor to envisioning a cool battle scene you thought up of! Here's how to enter:

  1. Make what you think is the best Minion Masters Comic ever created. 
  2. Entries must be in the format of a Comic with a minimum of 2 panels.
  3. Head on over to our Official Discord at and post your entry in the #comic-contest channel.
  4. Once the Contest ends on the 14th of August, a community vote will be held between 3 entries selected by the BetaDwarf Staff. The Winner will receive codes worth 5,000 Rubies, while second and third place will win 1,000 Rubies each.

As always, all entries need to be original artworks! You can use any medium you like - Sketches, digital, 3D, but they need to be your own work to be eligible for the contest.

The contest runs from the 22nd of July to the 14th of August, 0900 UTC. Good luck, Masters!
