Thread: MTG Arena

    Re: MTG Arena

    Well, this bodes well... splitting your players over a multitude of different platforms with no crossover in collections.

    I guess that as long as there are people falling for this they will keep milking it.

    True, but credit where it's due, Arena has been shockingly less of a cluster than expected ever since they hit open beta (closed beta is another story), and I can't believe I'm saying this, but I look forwards to Arena+ or whatever the new extended format they put on there next fall.

    Well, I mean, unless Modern Horizons includes Astral Slide, 'cause if so, that's what I'll be playing until the end of time.

    Alternatively it might tell more about the community than the game quality. I wonder about the games active player demography tbh.

    I'm beginning to feel doubtful about that. I'm more inclined to think they will have special events where 'you can use all cards in your collection' rather than a new format with it's own daily and monthly events, etc.

    That seems too harsh. You paid for something that is quite expensive, and now you can't use your cards except when you pay again?
    They need some queues to handle unique games in this new format (at least in 1vs1, if not also a "traditional play" Queue).
    If they don't do that, lots of people who like to play with the same deck that they will upgrade over time will quit.
    It's not a lot of developpement and a good investment.

    But this is the exact MTGO business model and people on here seem to love it.

    'Chris Clay, Game Director of MTG Arena, has parted ways with WOTC' and multiple theories are debated:

    Goodbye MtGO my old friend...

    Core Set 2020 gets five, and each one has a foil planeswalker card not found elsewhere, one M20 booster pack instead of two (so that, hopefully, you can offer them at a more inviting price), plus a code to unlock the entire deck on Magic Arena.
    North American WPN members who have signed up for M20 FNM will receive Magic Arena code cards to hand out to players on their August 16 FNM. Around that time, Arena will feature an ad driving players to FNM.

    So how's your new Astral Drift deck going?

    Arena and MTGO cater to two different crowds. Until they get Pauper/Legacy/Modern/Vintage on Arena, MTGO probably isn't going anywhere.

    Interesting. As a predominantly Modern player now I worry Historic will be a planeswalker nightmare fest of epic proportions. Standard is already mind-numbingly bad right now and they typically don't print good answers to planeswalkers, at least ones that are better than just playing planeswalkers yourself.

    I'll be happy to have a more consistent choice of draft formats at least. The way they've been running them lately have been a cash grab.

    How often can you guys draft on arena? The quest rewards let me draft like 3 times a week.

    It just feels sooo grindy if you cant draft once a day...

    I recently found time for online Magic again, and downloaded Arena to give it a try.

    First, I had to Google for how to escape from the mandatory however-many-games-long tutorial. Then I decided to draft, and accidentally joined a best-of-one. Then I finally managed to get into a best-of-three WAR draft and went 1-2 (I know basically nothing about WAR limited, so I'm surprised I won even a single match). Now I have... some "gems" and some "gold" and I have no idea which one does what.

    So I closed it and opened MTGO and did some more Modern Horizons drafts. Maybe when M20 lands I'll give it one more try since I usually enjoy core-set draft formats and I don't think I'll need to get any M20 cards on MTGO for Legacy use.
