Community Happenings - Balance happens

Minion Masters!

Second King Puff Cup tournament of Season 3 around the corner means the waiting is over! Tomorrow, the flying arenas will shake once again when some of the very best players compete against each other for a prize pool of $350. Another waiting will end on Tuesday next week.

Guaranteed legendary cards and balance changes

Legendary cards are one of the most wanted cards in Collectible Card Games. That's not different in Minion Masters. Although we designed the game in a way that legendary cards are not mandatory, many players want that big Colossus, Xiao Long (Tengs' favorite Minion to pronounce), Musketeer, Styxi and so on. The chances are random and rare at the same time and one of the best possibility to get your hands on a legendary card is a 12 wins Draft run or crafting.

We won't change that for now. But we have a big promotion for Minion Masters upcoming and therefore, we will give every player a guaranteed legendary for the first Draft run with 12 wins! Yes, you got that right: a guaranteed legendary and the chance to receive another one like usual with 12 wins. On Tuesday, April 24th, we will introduce Update 65 and start another round of Draft madness with the following one-time rewards:
  • 3 wins -> 750 Gold
  • 6 wins -> 100 Shards
  • 9 wins -> 100 Rubies
  • 12 wins -> guaranteed, random legendary card
It also came to our ears that some of you want balance changes. And we have to admit: balance changes were rare lately. Update 65 makes up for that with a total of 7 units receiving balance changes. Here's a quick excerpt:
  • Troubadour receives a buff
  • Crossbow Dudes receive a buff
  • Snake Druid receives a buff
  • Blackhole returns to a lower mana cost
All balance changes and the final numbers will be revealed in our Monday blog post. Stay tuned ;)
