Minion Masters Monday

Minion Masters!

We can finally come back to our usual update schedule with patch days on Wednesdays. The next update will be Update 80, scheduled for Wednesday, October 24th. If everything goes to plan, we'll shut down the live servers at around 08:00 UTC in the morning.

Masters, get ready for upcoming balance changes!

We know that balance changes is the part most players get excited about. For Update 80, we plan to adjust units like the Musketeer and Cannon Roller, but also a building called Dragon Nest. Here's the complete list of planned balance changes, but please keep in mind that the following is still subject to change and the official patch notes published on Wednesday could differ.

  • Will not gain Frenzy anymore, but Rage when you have a friendly unit with rage on the field.
  • Refunded mana down from 2 to 1
  • Health up from 250 to 275
  • Damage up from 50 to 55
  • Health up from 200 to 230
  • Amount of Crossbow Dudes being summoned by this spell up from 3 to 4
  • Will not activate from 3 mana units any longer, but 4 mana units instead
  • Attack delay down from 800 to 600
  • Mana cost down from 5 to 4
  • Duration down from 45 to 35
  • Health down from 300 to 250
We already gave a short reasoning for the upcoming balance changes last Thursday during our developer stream & you will find the usual 'Developer Comments' in the official patch notes on Wednesday.

Mayhem x2

We'll also introduce a 2vs2 mode to the Mayhem game mode. Enjoy all the craziness of Mayhem game rules with your best friends! The score will be the same for 1vs1 and 2vs2 so you can hop in and out of team play whenever you want.

Update 80 will also introduce bug fixes, amongst others Morgrul will stop cleaving.

King Puff Cup 26

Don't forget to sign-up for the first tournament of King Puff Cup Season 4 powered by AMD, SteelSeries & BetaDwarf Entertainment on Saturday, October 27th at 13:00 UTC. The staff around FFA is preparing for the next high-quality competitive season & invites everyone to participate!

Halloween is around the corner!

And above you'll see a brand new skin for King Puff, being available on Thursday, October 25th in the in-game shop. But that's not all! Edelweiss & Kishin, two well-known community members, announced a tournament on Saturday, November 3rd at 15:00 UTC. While the complete announcement is not published yet, we know that they plan a 'Halloween Card Pool'. Sounds like a challenge for all of you deck builders out there ;)

Stay tuned for more information on that subject!


That's all for today, Masters! Have a nice start to the week and get ready to cause some Mayhem with your friends coming Wednesday ;)

Cheers from BetaDwarf
