Minion Masters Monday

Minion Masters!

It's the last week before we go on our Christmas Vacation, meaning this will also be the last Minion Masters Monday of the year too. We told you that 2018 would truly be a legendary year for Minion Masters, and we've certainly been through a wild ride! But most importantly of all, we were glad you were here to experience it with us, Masters.

Rise of the Howling Moon

Our fourth Battle Pass Expansion, the Rise of the Howling Moon, starts today! Dive in to our newest update and enjoy 100 new tiers of Battle Pass content. If you need a rough idea of what to expect, head over to our Update website right here! We've had a lot of fun designing and testing this set of cards and we hope you have just as much fun playing them. Let us know on our Discord, Reddit, Stomt and Steam Forums what you think of them after giving them a try in-game!

Please note that Diona the Witch Hunter will not be entering the game until mid-way through the season, at which point the Tier 100 skin will be revealed as well. Happy hunting, Masters!

Winter Holidays at BetaDwarf

The Holidays may indeed be upon us, and that also means we're in the holiday spirit of giving! From the 23rd to the 28th of December there will be eight Featured Offers available in the shop, as well as a special Free item on the 23rd and 24th, courtesy of BetaDwarf. Don't miss it, it might not be around again for a while!

Obviously, with our vacation, it does mean there will not be any blog posts or updates until we've returned in January. Most of the dwarves will be spending time with their families and won't be available for contact, but we will still be present for support inquiries and to prevent any errors from occurring. If you experience issues during this period, leave a message on Steam, Discord or mail, which we'll be routinely checking.

Discord Snowsgiving Tournament

The Discord Snowsgiving Tournament happened last weekend! It was Minion Masters' biggest prize pool tournament yet with over $25,000 on the line, and competition was fierce with nearly 100 participants in the 1v1 bracket. It was streamed live on Discord's official twitch channel, and the finals came down to a shootout between long-time Minion Masters players, with Katt and Memfisto facing off for the grand prize of $2,500. Memfisto took the win and was crowned champion, with Katt taking a cool $1,500 home for second place. 

On the 2v2 side of the event it was a mix of the old and the new, with Partners teaming up with Minion Masters veterans for exciting team based co-ordination. In the end, VangoBG and Kuryoku took home a prize of $5,000 to split between them, while Engineer Gandalf the Pink and ZonkTheDonk took second place with $4,000. It was an exciting tournament to watch with high stakes on the line, and we're looking forward to seeing the competitive spirit ignited in the players continue into the new year!

Happy Holidays from BetaDwarf!
