Minion Masters Friday

Minion Masters!

We've got more of a look at the upcoming features in Version 1.3 as well as the new Tri-Team Tourney that lets you vote for a card we'll be making in a future update.



Tri-Team Tourney

The return of our card voting format is here! Similarly to the way our Card-House Contests have worked, the Tri-Team Tourney has you collecting keys for your favoured house and receiving a Legendary card from the first team you open the chest for. We've got Mal'Shar and Taurus making their return appearances from the previous tournaments, and with a new contender Ghost Storm picking up the flag for House Valor. Here's the teams and their respective cards:

  • House Valor: Stormbringer, Volco, Ratbo - Ghost Storm
  • House Triumph: Apep, Morellia, Mordar - Mal'Shar
  • House Glory: Milloween, Ravager, King Puff - Taurus

Your prize for voting for your card of choice will be a random Legendary card. Remember, you can only vote for one of the three teams! Look forward to the contest in Version 1.3.

Version 1.3 Feature List

We've decided to mix things up a little and give a full overview of what can be expected in Version 1.3 - These are the features we're aiming to include, though note that some of these may end up being delayed. Here's what we're planning for the next update:

  • Conquest Season 4
  • Tri-Team Tourney
  • Conquest Retry & general Improvements
  • Balance Changes
  • Player Reporting System
  • Bug Report System

Most of these are fairly self explanatory, but expect to hear more about them in the coming weeks!

King Puff Cup Season 5

The Fifth King Puff Cup Season is just around the corner, with King Puff Cup 34 just recently being announced with a date of July 6th, 2019! We can expect to see the familiar faces that ran a fantastic circuit in the fourth season reprise their roles with the new Sideboard format tested in the Prince Puff Cup series! The sideboard format allows players to submit 8 additional cards that can be swapped into their decks as they wish to adapt to strategies or pull surprises out of the bag, and has already proven to be quite popular with the high-level Minion Masters players. The prize pool hasn't been announced yet, but there is a promise from Julaiwnl that it'll be coming "really soon", so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Version 1.2 - Morellia the Lich Queen



Minion Masters!

We're so excited about this patch we don't want to delay any further, let's get into it:

New Master - Morellia the Lich Queen
Morellia the Lich Queen, Ruler of the Cursed lands, Queen of Souls, and Dragon Binder. Her magical power is rivaled only by her sister Milloween, but unlike her sister, Morellia uses her powers mercilessly in pursuit of her own ambitions. Wielding the Book of the Dead, she can call upon a host of powerful Death Magic to decimate her foes. However, the ancient soul trapped within the book is forever plotting its release.

In the end all will serve the Lich Queen.


Morellia will be available for 1500 Shards, or 775 Rubies.

Learn more about Morellia here, or check her out in-game!

Balance
  • Commander Azali
    • No longer affects Flying Minions
  • Developer Comments
  • Azali’s ability to protect flying swarm minions, in particular Nether Bats produced by Bats Bats Bats, was a frustrating mechanic to play against due to their unpredictability and “backstabbing” of units played to counter the combination.

    One of the things Azali does well is providing a dream scenario you can build your deck around, but when you combine the shield mechanic with flying swarms, you get distinctly frustrating decks to play against. We wanted to maintain the dream, but make sure the opponent had a greater chance of being able to deal with the strategy without requiring an extremely specific deck counter.

  • Guardian
    • Now only shields Crystal Elves
    • Mana Cost 6 > 5
    • Damage 60 > 80
    • Damage change also affects Crystal Construct
  • Developer Comments
  • Guardian is a card that has proven particularly problematic as the card collection developed due to its high potential to protect otherwise vulnerable, but powerful Minion combos from removal effects or general damage, creating strategies that often felt unfair to play against. We opted to have Guardian fit more of a faction-based niche to fit thematically with the theme of the Crystal Elf Constructs. Like the Azali change, this greatly reduces the potential for abusive combinations with the card, but still retains its core identity.

  • Nyrvir the Fallen
    • Nyrvir Slumbers now does 80 damage over 4 seconds via 20 damage ticks once per second.
    • Health 1800 > 2200
    • Bug Fix: Fixed an issue where Nyrvir’s damage was significantly lower than intended during her first attack.
  • Developer Comments
  • Nyrvir Slumbers was a bit harder to pull off than we’d have liked, with effects such as Shield providing a hard counter to your ability to collect Spectral Essence from the card, as well as the small damage range not being effective enough to kill some desirable targets. Additionally, Nyrvir herself felt too easy to remove once you had managed to play her, so we felt a health boost was in order.

  • Ratbo
    • Damage 5 > 6
  • Developer Comments
  • One of Ratbo’s weaknesses was his basic attack, with its total DPS being among the lowest in the game, often leaving him defenseless against medium or larger sized units if he wasn’t able to flood the board with his scrats.

  • Snake Druid
    • Health 60 > 80
    • Root Duration 2 > 6 seconds
  • Developer Comments
  • Snake Druid, while a much beloved card of a small audience, suffered from how easily it could be picked off from small units, meaning that it often failed to get much value after its initial play. By increasing the HP he remains a bit more survivable, though easy to deal with on his own. More significant, however, is the increase of the Root Duration that will primarily apply once Snake Druid has been removed or forced to stop attacking, ensuring that the card will gain value.

  • Stormy
    • No longer stuns himself
    • Range 8 > 6
    • Speed 3 > 5
  • Developer Comments
  • Stormy was particularly safe for how frustrating it could be to play against. By removing the self-stun (but not the self damage) it will no longer continuously retarget to the closest minion, while the range and speed nerfs aim to put him in harm’s way faster and make him easier to deal with by reducing the effective time he can stay in the radius of cards such as Priestess and Healing Shrine.

  • Undying Skeleton/Cursebearer
    • Damage 50 > 60
  • Developer Comments
  • This change is mainly directed towards Undying Skeleton as we felt it has been underperforming, particularly in the new Toll of the Dead. Hopefully a small buff in damage will help give it the impact it needs.

  • Xiao Long
    • Damage 25 > 20
  • Developer Comments
  • Xiao was a bit too effective at his job - Being an annoying ranged minion that could discourage the usage of spells and support a push effectively. This damage nerf aims to retain that discouragement while making him less effective in more general cases.

[h1[b]Misc[/b][/h1]
  • Made resummoning minions more consistent. Minions with buffs, such as Shielded Crossbow Dudes or Divine warrior, do not resurrect with their buff effects anymore. Additionally, on play effects such as Lord-Sentinel Thelec or Empowered Souls Stealers rage-trigger are no longer triggered when the Minion is resummoned.
  • Changed the name of “Recruit” to “Craft”.
  • Added a tip to the “Trophy Up” tutorial quest to indicate where achievements can be claimed.
  • Added highlights to buttons in the tutorial when a player is asked to click on them.
  • Claimable Quests will now show up first in the Quest Carousel.
  • Reworded the Season Crafting Discount to prevent confusion.
  • Clarified that the +2 from Stormbringer’s second perk is from Marksmanship.

Bugs
  • Fixed Lycanthropy transformations triggering Mordar’s Tombstones - Thanks TomatoMato!
  • Fixed Haunting Hugger being killed when possessing Defenso Chopper - Thanks SoSiskodemon!
  • Fixed Jolo the Hero Scrat blocking healing and HP increases - Thanks Goatfan146!
  • Fixed Jolo the Hero Scrat not having any indication that his condition was fulfilled.
  • Fixed some range issues with Nyrvir regarding units that were close to her.
  • Fixed a bug where Succubus’ ability would be activated by Stun Lancers.
  • Fixed a visual bug where Re-Boomer would not revert to Egg form if killed by Stormy.
  • Fixed an issue where some Discord Users sent empty tokens to the server, causing their DLCs to not active correctly.
  • Fixed the tutorial Power Token referring to itself as “spin token”.
  • Fixed ragdolls freezing mid-air.
  • Fixed an alignment issue with Treasure Vault’s flames.
  • Fixed unusual text formatting on Gambler’s Ball.
  • Fixed the Season Gold Star flashing constantly.
  • Fixed multiple copies of Spawn of Fury causing the VFX to not end until the second clone died.

Bugs - Xbox Specific
  • Fixed some lag issues while idling on the main menu.
  • Fixed an issue where Rubies bought from the Microsoft store were not visually claimed when opening the game.
  • Further fixes to DLC issues on Xbox.
