Community Happenings - Segments and Dynasties

Minion Masters!

The following weekend is a weekend without competitive Minion Masters on Twitch. In fact, the next tournament will happen on Saturday, May 5th at 13:00 UTC, namely the King Puff Cup 20. Now, we want to change that. That's why our Community Management and eSports Coordination are working as hard as they can to get more tournament organizers into Minion Masters with attractive programs such as the following:

A magical Dynasty

Tengs, our eSports Coordinator polished a new competitive segment called "Minion Challenge". This segment will be purely community-driven and the formats tournaments will be played in are made by the tournament organizers themselves. This segment is specifically made to have fun, rather than compete within a professional tournament environment. The prizes will range from in-game resources such as Gold & Rubies to exclusive skins!

The picture above shows Dynasty Milloween, the first exclusive skin for winners of fun tournaments and/or tournament organizers which are willing to host at least two Minion Challenges. After 3 months, Dynasty Milloween will be rotated out for a new exclusive skin.

If you're interested in hosting your very own fun tournament, please contact Tengs on Discord or via Twitter.

Here's the above picture in a higher resolution.

King Puff Cup 20

The second segment in the young competitive scene around Minion Masters is called "Master Challenge". King Puff Cup 20 is in this segment, which means players will find themselves competing against each other in a proper tournament environment. The current setting for this environment is Swiss and Conquest, although tournament organizers have a little breathing room. Dipshit teased another popular format at the end of King Puff Cup 19 already and we're excited to see the first official announcement about it.

King Puff Cup 20, however, will use the current setting. The group stage will be played as 6 rounds of Swiss and the final stage is a single-elimination showdown between the Top 8 advanced from the group stage. The match format is Conquest.

The third tournament of King Puff Cup Season 3 will happen on Saturday, May 5th at 13:00 UTC and has $350 to split across the Top 8 participants. If you're interested in to be one of them, check the official announcement and rules right here on Reddit!


Next week, we will talk about streaming. In detail: when BetaDwarf will be starting to stream again. All we can tell you right now is that you can expect to see Tengs and Erythais live on stream frequently, alongside special guests from the team and the community.

That's all for today Masters! Have a nice weekend everybody and rock the flying arenas.

Cheers from BetaDwarf
