Quote from Hollathe guy is lying. Stuff Sold in Philly PA, is an authorized distributor for MTG. His Ebay phone number links him to the MTG site . Furthermore I expect his authorized distributorship to be tossed...the guy is running this "store" from his home. How many people do you think are going to show up to his "Pre-Release" event at his house? How long has he been mis-representing his paperwork to WOTC?
Quote from DestinyHeroI'm not doubting the possibility of a small group of individuals being greedy and exploiting the system. I'm just asking if 1) you have proof and 2) if there is proof that is widespread, considering that the MPRs needed to be mailed out, I think Wizards would've caught on to the fact that they were sending out an unusually high number of promos every time.
And again, Wizards could've instead altered the way they allowed tournaments to qualify as a sanctioned event instead of scrapping the program altogether, but they didn't.
Quote from Sir Reginald IIIIf my LGS is holding a total of 4 events, and I can only participate in the final one, (thanks to my exam schedule, astrophysics on a Saturday @ 11am... ugh) what do you think the odds are of the Helvault(s) being depleted by that time? I really want to participate, but I would be terrified of doing poorly on an exam because I went to a midnight prerelease :/
Quote from JRE47So wait a second...only the players on the winning "team" get the prizes? No matter how well anyone plays, if they end up on a losing team due to forces entirely outside their control, they get nothing? Am I reading that right?
Quote from Bogado_manI think pretty much everyone calls Deep Analysis by its short name. Awkward to say it out loud though...
