Its worth a win.

assuming it follows other tcgs, the best possible win when coming to tie breakers

It's worth a win.

Tie breakers are names in alphabetical order. So the lower the first letter of your name, the more likely you'll be 2nd when you are 2-1.

Granted I never liked that a bye gives you a better standing in a tie-breaker either. It's not your fault either way, so I can see how it's a delicate issue to handle.

I was thinking that too. But I just have to wait for the perfect time... Where Xexist, Zophie, Zubrin, and a bunch of others all queue at the same time.

Pretty bad for me too, but I'm just happy for the three matches and the packs, losing out on a bit of gold ain't a big deal.
