Community Happenings - $850 and lots of specials

Minion Masters!

Today is not just another Friday. Today is the day before the King Puff Invitational of the King Puff Cup Season 2 and - if all goes to plan - the last Friday before the Visual Rework gets introduced. Excited? Hyped? Want to see the very best tournament players competing against each other already? Can't wait any longer for reveals? Well, then this Saturday is for you!

Visual Rework Reveal

On Saturday, February 24th, we will reveal the Visual Rework live on Twitch during the King Puff Invitational! Between the Group and Final Stage, we will show you guys what we're about to introduce to Minion Masters. You will see showmatches revealing the new Sticky Placement mechanics, the new Aggro & Range Indicators, the new Visuals and a lot more. But that's not all!

Along with the reveal of the Visual Rework, we will also present new exciting changes and implementations planned for Minion Masters! We don't want to tell you what exactly right now since some things are just better explained by seeing them instead of reading. Did we mention that UncleOwnage and Erythais will be live on stream for that? Well, now you know!

Get ready for the show and remember: there are no brakes on the Hype Train ;)

King Puff Invitational

The main show on Saturday, starting at 14:00 UTC, is the King Puff Invitational, of course. The 16 very best tournament players of the current King Puff Cup Season 2 will be fighting for the King Puff Champions Title, special visual in-game features and the prize pool of $850 in total. This is the second highest prize pool in the history of Minion Masters for the second King Puff Invitational!

Make sure to bring some time on Saturday, since this tournament will be played as follows:

In the group stage, the 16 participants are divided into 4 groups. Every group plays Round Robin and the two point leaders will advance to the final stage. The matches will be Best of 2 with the Conquest format in place.

In the final stage, things will happen more like usual: Double Elimination, Conquest Best of 3 except the medal matches, which will be Best of 5s.

At the end of this Community Happenings, we want to shout out special thanks to Inception eSports for their ongoing support by spreading the word, especially on Twitch! You guys are doing an amazing job and we're very thankful for all your effort! Let's see if RushSecond can win the second King Puff Invitational in a row and bring the King Puff Cup Champions Title to Inception eSports ;)

Masters, that's all! Good luck to all participants and for the rest of you: we see you on Saturday!

Cheers from BetaDwarf
