What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Since this is an online PvP game, we would like to test the balance and get player feedback before release.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We are planning on a full release in Mid 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Here's a list of things we would like to look into with you before we leave Early Access:
  • Lots of new Minions, Spells and Buildings
  • Balancing
  • New awesome Masters
  • More social mechanics
  • Leaderboards (Done)
  • More progression systems ("Expeditions" in progress)
  • 2 Vs 2 - Team Battle (Available in Beta version)
  • Overall polish
And the extra unplanned good ideas that always occur”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable, with lots of Minions and Masters you can be creative with. There's progression systems, Drafting, Matchmaking leagues, Arenas to unlock, Global chat, Friend listing, Profile summaries, Achievements, Replays, a Challenge system and much more.
You progress will not be wiped when leaving Early Access, it's yours to keep.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Minion Masters will be free-to-play in the future. If you buy the Early Access version you will get an exclusive Arena and a great gift when the game is released!
Plus 1 extra tradeable Minion Masters key you get right away when you buy the game.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We are always very active on the Steam Community forums where we collect your feedback and engage in the discussions. We will also be playing a lot and chatting with you in the in-game chat.
On top of that we have a suggestion system.

Lastly we are very active in the community Discord for the game, receiving bugs, feedback, suggestions and balance discussions from the active players.”

Update 65 - Legendary Draft Event!



Minion Masters!

King Puff Cup this Saturday was amazing! If you were unable to make it to the live stream in time, had to go early or tuned in late, you should definitely check out the VOD

This week brings the last part of the Draft madness, this time with a guaranteed Legendary Card at 12 wins!

We’ve also got some interesting balance changes for you all this week :)

Legendary Draft event
  • For one week, you can gain extra one-time rewards when reaching a certain number of wins in Draft.
  • 3 wins - 750 Gold
  • 6 wins - 100 Shards
  • 9 wins - 100 Rubies
  • 12 wins - Random Legendary card
  • You can only claim these rewards once
  • No special rules for card choices.

A.I.M. Bot available!
  • The A.I.M Bot is now available outside of Draft through spins and crafting.
  • 5 Mana, Rare.
  • The A.I.M. Bot is a Drone Walker that comes with an Automated Intelligent Murder system pre-loaded to gain Marksmanship!

Balance
  • Black hole - Mana cost 3 to 2, Duration down 7 to 6
    --- Developer comments ---
    Black hole took too much of a backseat when it was changed last time. The high mana cost made it clunky, and with the Beam of Doom changes the use of it changed as well. It’s a fun and spectacular card at high levels of play, and we would like to see it used more.

  • Combustion - Damage up from 100 to 150
    --- Developer comments ---
    Combustion feedback before its’ release saw it too powerful in many cases, but it was perhaps scaled back a little too much.
    We decided to increase the damage because we wanted to maintain the card as a high skill card that could provide a great reward. This change also emphasizes the sacrifice aspect of it.

  • Snake Druid - Damage from 20 to 25, Attack delay 500 to 400
    --- Developer comments ---
    The Attack delay specifically targets Snake Druids interaction with Minions that have 5 speed and 6 range like the Succubus. He should now be able to keep them at bay, thus providing more utility. The damage increase helps him be viable in more situations, too.

  • Crossbow Dudes - Attack cooldown from 1.6 to 1.5 sec. Also affects Shielded Crossbow Dudes, Raging Reinforcements and Crossbow Guild.
  • Troubadour - Damage from 250 to 300 (dps 50 to 60)
  • Whirly Scrat - Health 360 to 390, Damage 50 to 55
  • Musketeer - Damage from 60 to 65

Misc
  • We’ve made some further improvements to matchmaking, specifically to reduce the cases where players encounter people far away in rank.
Cheers from Betadwarf!

  • Fixed a bug where Milloween’s skin was receiving too little light.
  • Fixed a bug where Lost Legionnaires, Gambler’s Ball and Combustion appeared in spins with the wrong rarity.
Cheers from Betadwarf!

Reviews

  • "It’s pretty fun. Ultimately it’s a pretty damn good version of the Clash Royale model."
    TotalBiscuit
  • "Is this by those Forced Showdown guys?! Is this the greatest game of all time?"
    PennyArcade
  • "Pick Up and Play PvP at its finest"
    GameSkinny
  • "If you’re familiar with things like Nexus Wars and Castle Attack, or just Clash Royale, you’re immediately gonna be able to pick this game up very very quickly. Obviously there is quite a lot of learning involved with the different troop types and cards available. But it's really slick. It’s plays really really well. It’s a good version of that game type, for PC."

Game Modes

  • 1v1 - Fight against other players and see how far your skills can take you. The rank of Grandmaster awaits if you can become one of the best!
  • 2v2 - Join with your friend or queue up with randoms to take down other teams in this super intense 2v2 action. Twice the minions, twice the action!

Legendary Masters

Only the most determined players can learn to utilize a Master to their full potential!

  • Each player has a pool of mana and a deck of 10 cards (minions/spells/buildings).
    A card can costs between 0-10 mana and your mana regenerates over time during the match.
  • There are 2 bridges in the middle that you need to capture and hold. They generate experience so your hero can level up his abilities before the enemy.
  • You place minions on your side of the arena and the goal is to have them destroy the enemy’s tower.
  • Minions have minds of their own and once you have summoned them, they can no longer be controlled, so place them wisely!
  • Most minions have unique abilities. A few examples of this are: AOE damage, healing, teleporting, mana regen, flying and many more.
  • Spells can be used to change the flow of the game in your favour. Spells such as healing, mind control or stuns can be devastating in the hands of a skilled player.
  • Each hero has unique abilities that change the game drastically as they become active.
  • Awareness, strategy and dedication is needed if you want to become great at the game.

Join in and have fun in our amazing world of Minion Masters!
