maybe but it also shows that he has BALLZ OF STEEL. The mark of a true competitor with alligator blood. I love it.

If he's just being a nice guy, then that was rely nice of him. If it was because he hoped that the extra cash would coerce Kryder into implementing sideboards for the AHK season tournament...money wasted :doh:

Apparently SOMEONE hasn't read the "Tournament Update" thread.


Seems likely...

Damn Kryder. Next time make me a part of the test group then I'll be up to date :teach:

Planeswalkers,

OK, I've thrown some ideas at the test group (including some of yours), and I'm confident of announcing the following changes that will most likely be implemented in the next tournament:

1. No recording/streaming will be required. It will still highly encouraged, as if there is a dispute I'll need some way of adjudicating, but I'll deal with that as needed.

2. Sideboards will be allowed for part of the tournament. More to come on this later, but I've been looking into the best way to implement this and I'm going to do the exact opposite /sarc.

3. Deck building skill will be challenged in this next tournament. More to follow.

4. EDIT: Top 8 will be best of 5 games (this is a definite inclusion). Sorry, I forgot to add that here earlier.

Remember, this still might change, though I am 95% these changes will make it in (the sideboarding still requires some discussion and I'm still reaching out to some people for their perspectives).

Anyways, hype it up, leave your comments, and get your coins together for AlmondCat!

My 2 cents:

1. I've always liked the recording aspect regardless of how many problems it creates. It's what makes the tournaments fun and engaging.

2. Sideboards for PART of the tournament?!!? Interesting... I've always agreed with Barney in the sense that sideboards are for paper magic. This is Duels, a F2P online card game where yes, there is significant chance and luck involved. That's what makes Duels what it is, and I always have and will always disagree with changes to these duels tournaments that try to make Magic Duels closer and closer to paper magic (sideboards and restarting matches to ensure loser has draw/play to name a couple). If I wanted to play paper magic, I'd go to FNM.

3. Didn't know there was a problem with the deckbuilder...

4. I like that the top 8 will be a best of 5. Nice change.

But what's a random guys opinion worth these days anyway? :hand:

not much, especially when he puts this in THE WRONG THREAD

but as always, i agree with everything you have to say. I actually hate ALL FOUR changes that Kryder is making. All of them are worse for me. But I'm not running the tournaments and Kryder absolutely knows what he's doing and, presumably, has the pulse of the players.

Just remember that I swallowed my pride and played. You should do the same. You barely have any pride to begin with anyway.

wtf is this total bullshlt?! Are you trying to trigger me? :)

you DIDN'T play cuz it didn't have sideboarding.



that's true that I don't have pride tho

let me be clear tho, I'm not saying Kryder is making these tournaments worse. I'm saying he's making them worse for me. Like if he made them all include a round of Gwent or YuGuyOh, that would make it worse for me, but not necessarily worse.

I just watched through the finals and haven't gone through all the comments to see if anyone else pointed this out...

First of all I was surprised when I saw the deck that got into finals - the slow BW ****...imagine my surprise seeing it win. And the plays?! I always thought to myself that xBox magicduels players must be inferior at least a bit, but I said "it's mean to say that, you don't know".. just by watching these finals I know that almost for sure I'm right. There could be some crazy variance that led those two players with those two decks to finals, but not very likely. I know that some of you are great players and have some crazy story behind how you started magic duels on xbox instead of PC so this isn't meant for all. It's a big enough difference between levels of magicduels and paper magic players, but this is a whole nother level.

The mardu vehilces was pretty decent tho, at least the play..

* I'm gonna go check decklists later, cause I really want to see how this deck got to finals.

Steam's finals were won by NH. Vehicles didn't even enter the finals, and only 1 made it into the semis. If this should teach you anything, its that crazier things can and will happen.

It wouldn't be an Xbox thread without some PC elitism.

It just shows he didn't watch any of the games up to that point. Maybe he watches the boyscout club seals on twitch...watching him play does not endear me to XBoner's play skill overall.

But I've been doing this long enough to know better.

It's also stupid as that game 5 between mobius and unbeatable was one of the best played matches i've ever watched, while in the steam final one player accidentally cast a pump spell on the wrong creature one game, and then the other made some truly special plays in game 3...

So they have a free to play weekend with RL and it is my first time playing. On Friday 2/17/2017 it worked just fine then the following day I try to get on and now every time I try to get in a server it says it's connecting then pops up server connection timed out error 67. Tried looking it up to fix it and all I can find is how to fix for PC. I really loved playing the online mode the first night I was able to play it and I really wanna buy the game, but why waste my money for a broken game I can't even play. Sure season mode is fun only cuz I can't play online. This game is meant to be played online not single player. Please help me out I wanna buy this game.
