Two Times More BetaDwarf Per Week

Minion Masters!
What an exciting week. We announced eSports and a related voting for the ESL Go4 Series. We have the 2nd Season of the King Puff Cup starting on October 7th. Make sure you sign up in time!
Furthermore, we have the Monday Night Masters League starting on October 2nd. All 18 slots are filled already, but you should definitely read the official announcement.

Yesterday, Update 45 hit and brought us Expeditions and balance changes. Here's an interesting round table that happened yesterday. Videogamer77, Eazotop, Sinilil and Salbei22 were discussing all the changes and announcements for you.

Let's talk about more BetaDwarf

We want to introduce you to a new schedule on our blog. From now on, we will post two times a week on Monday and Friday. Every Monday, we want to give you and the whole community a brief overview of what is happening and what is about to come. On Friday, we will cover the “Community Happenings”. We will go into more detail a little bit later.

We want you to know!

First, let’s talk about the Monday posts. What can you expect? Well, we aim to be more transparent, more authentic, more accessible. As a brand, as a company, as developers. In order to do so, we want to share brief insights with you as well as outlooks for our games (mainly Minion Masters, though). Monday posts will contain many information about what we're planning, a bit of talk about what’s next and many things for you to understand what’s going on behind the scenes. We will share our success and struggle with you! We want you to know what's going on.

But that’s not all. Furthermore, we will talk about the competitive aspects of Minion Masters. More so than before. We announced our goal to become an eSports title. A huge part of that is balancing, matchmaking, the ranking system and new features needed, in order to improve gameplay and viewability. Another part is promoting the game, enhancing the numbers of players and scaling up tournaments through active and passive support. In order to reach our goal, we feel that there’s a lot to talk about with you.

Forced to be public!

Friday is reserved for a whole other topic. One could say that Friday posts are all about you: our community! We will cover "Community Happenings" we spotted during the week. This will entail community produced content, talks about the current rankings, statistics, funny moments within the community and a special called “Special Guests”. Yes! Some Fridays, we’ll introduce a special guest to you. Some might be promoters or casters, some are streamers, others regular players just like you. In the end, they are all part of our community. Stay tuned and watch out for our Friday posts!

You’re also able to suggest content for the weekly Community Happenings via the Community Discord or email. Thomas alias Erythais, our Community Manager, will be more than happy to try to integrate them. Besides the two weekly posts, we will announce updates and keep communicating important news to you, of course.

That’s all, Minion Masters. Back to the flying arenas now, C-SAR wants some entertainment! Oh and by the way, we want some entertainment, too. We highly encourage you to sign up for the upcoming 2vs2 King Puff Cup! So grab a friend, sign up and train your Minion Armies.

Cheers from BetaDwarf!
