Welcome to the ‘Community Happenings’. This is our first Friday post with this new topic and we feel like there’s more to discuss than one can fit in one post. Well, October turned out to be a real busy month. We have so many things going on at the same time:
King Puff 2vs2 Cup
Monday Night Masters
Kripparrian streaming Minion Masters live on Twitch
Expeditions with a new card obtainable
Revive of our Subreddit
The Master’s Challenge
King Puff Cup & Monday Night Masters
Monday Night Masters is a project of Salbei22 & Sinilil. They have planned a Swiss Style 1vs1 League with 18 participants playing against each other over the duration of 5 weeks. At the end of that 5 week period, the best 4 players will compete in a Double Elimination Playoff. The first broadcast of the weekly games can be watched live on Twitch on Monday 9th at 18:00 CEST.
Kripparrian – The Sensitive Savage
Don’t know what the Sensitive Savage is? Well, here’s a short introduction of Scott:
Rumours are that a unique minion roams through the Eternal Woods. A furious fighter of fierce ferocity, hailing from the Highlands in the north. It was told, that Masters frantically search the lands for this minion. But nobody was able to acquire his strength, yet. The savage carries a secret and the trailblazers who have seen him speak in riddles: "Only those with a good shoulder will convince the savage to join them".
Kripparrian streaming Minion Masters is a huge thing by itself. But we also thought about our Community. Therefore, we changed the way ‘Watch & Win’ works: instead of a free key for Minion Masters, streamers can now win Supplies Codes for their audience. Just watch Minion Masters streams and win free supplies for your expeditions!
Want to surprise others with a free copy of Minion Masters? Well, here you go!
Official Minion Masters Subreddit
If you don’t like Reddit, we will not force you to use it. But we would like your help nonetheless even if it is just a comment every now and then. The vast majority of gamers seem to follow the known names of a given scene, the so called Community Influencers & Leaders. But not only the big names could make some impact, every single user posting and commenting on our Subreddit makes it more findable via the Reddit Mainpage and Google. Just head over there once in a while, leave your vote on some posts and comment or share a cool video clip! That’s all it takes, really.
