Not sure how the drafting match algorithm is going to work but what is to stop guilds from all joining in on one draft...opening the packs and drafting the cards, only to have 6 people drop out so that the top 2 will get the prizes. They can rotate who drops out so that everyone gets prizes in the end. In this situation, they use minimal time to get the maximum amount of reward. Any insight on this?

Join a guild.

Anyone know something about the prices yet?

Let's say a guild does that (if there's the possibility to join with 8 members),
they use 8$ so the price must be more than 4 boosters to be profitable.

Too much hassle for nothing

Unless people are planning on boosting rating of two people, I don't really see the point of an entire pool drafting without playing.

They can rotate who drops out so that every 4 drafts, everyone gets points for "winning."

If you rotate who drops out, I'd assume that the effect would bring everyone closer to the average of the group, which makes it somewhat pointless overall. (Higher ranked people would lose ranking, lower ranked people would gain ranking.)

That would mean the guild will have to look for 8 people who don't actualy want to do the drafting.
I think most people do enjoy the drafts, so it doesn't seem worth the effort.

Also, this doesn't provide "The maximum ammount of reward", but the average ammount of reward.

I think it would be random, but I don't see this being all that popular anyway.

I just don't see this form of abuse being popular without CZE banning accounts.
