Minion Master's Monday - Combustion and the Invitational

Minion Masters!

Are you ready for the King Puff Invitational? Last Saturday was only a foretaste of what is to come! Another foretaste is waiting in this blog post and it's of course about the third brand new card coming to Minion Masters on Wednesday: Combustion. So let's have a look at this week, shall we?

Will you sacrifice your Minions?

Everything comes with a price. A Fireball, for example, costs 4 mana, right? Well, on Wednesday we will introduce the third new card Combustion and this time it's probably not only mana you'll have to spend. Depending on the affected Minions the question is: Are you ready to sacrifice these Minions?

Combustion is a legendary spell which costs 2 mana. On use, you'll choose a ground target anywhere on the flying arenas. The moment you play the spell, friendly Minions in a small area will be affected by the spell's effect. 3 seconds later, they will explode for 100 Damage to itself and any nearby Enemies including flying units and structures. And for those asking: yes, the damage can be absorbed with Shield effects such as the new Bannerman or Guardian.

Combustion has no target limitation so it can affect an infinite number of friendly Minions, theoretically. Combustion thus is meant as a moving AoE (Area of Effect) Control Spell and we're excited to see what you'll come up with ;)

We will - of course - keep an eye on the spell and it's performance and won't hesitate to change things if deemed important. 

On Wednesday, we will have a patch introducing Combustion and the Frisky Friend Fiesta ends. We will also have bug fixes, but no balance changes. The reason for that is to not interfere with the King Puff Invitational, which will happen this Saturday. Don't worry, we have a big update planned for the week after the King Puff Invitational to make up for that ;)
