6 packs of what?

Please clarify as well. Also on the prize payouts.

I'm cool with all set 2, but I'm assuming not. Would be cool if the prizes were all set 2 though ::wink, wink::

Also Phenteo:
Any word on when the Daily Sealed non-expiring tickets can be used for Daily Sealed Entry?

The Daily Sealed Non-Expiring tickets are still experiencing issues. The devs will look into getting that resolved when we come back from the break.

Can you clarify on the Prize break-down.

IE: If you win 10 packs is it 7 set 2, 3 set 1?
If you win 8, is it 6 set 2, 2 set 1?
etc.

I double-checked with Chark, you get all set 2. :)

Nice! I prefer winning Set 2 packs also :D

Wish you all good luck for the incoming VIP tournaments.

So just to make sure, this is all still Set 1? The Set 2 specials aren't till next month?

Oh nice, thank you very much :) I was just coming here to ask if everything was set 1, as seemed to be implied.

The link to this forum from the article wasn't working for me, btw.

I hope you guys all enjoy a well earned Christmas off :)

What are you seeking clarification on? Seems everything has been covered.

The entry fee is 4x Set 2, 2x Set 1.
The payout (in packs) is all Set 2.
The AA are Gralk and Inquisitor.

Willingly Forced to play sealed. I'm not a fan but last sealed I pulled a 4-0 :P

Up to today I've played 4 sealed games ever. 2 VIP 2 regular

I just want to drop a heads-up here - anyone experiencing bugged drafts on a regular basis, you are likely at high risk of losses during the VIP sealed as well. If you fall into this category, a last resort option (that has seemingly worked for me) is to reformat your PC, getting a fresh install of your operating system.

This is NOT an officially endorsed fix, and you would be doing it with no guarantee it will work, but it has given me positive results and I believe it is worth a try. :)

(This is a small sample size, but I went from a 100% loss rate in 20 drafts to having 5 work flawlessly after a reformat.)

@Xenavire, was your bug the sideboard autoloss bug?

@Xenavire, was your bug the sideboard autoloss bug?

Yes, although there are actually 3 related bugs that this seems to fix. ('Waiting for opponent', being stuck in the lobby, and no priority at the start of the game.)

It is an extreme fix, but for those who need it, it is an option.

Thanks. Good to know that there may be a fix for that bug, but that's a bit extreme for me to use on my gaming pc. :(

Guess I'm roll in the dice and hoping this event I can at least get it to randomly choose me as the winner at least once.

Any chance we can get 32 man drafts or some version of draft for the VIP Tournament? Draft is the most popular and would make the most people happy.

atm for me its like this: scheduled sealed (also vip) > draft > 8man sealed > any constructed

I would like to play more 8man sealed, but the rewards are just awfull. :(

No bugs for me, but that awful feeling when you see your cards & realize you have zero chance against anyone who doesn't bug out...

No speed, no evasion, biggest troop is a 5/4 common Zealot (next biggest = 2/3) - my hopes ride on a favorable Born of the Flame!
(And getting time to ever play it. :rolleyes:)

At least you get a set 2 pack just for showing up. :)

At some point, it would be nice to have 64 man drafts. However, the time commitment is much higher to do it properly since it's just 8 tables where the winners draft again to determine the victor. I don't see it happening for the VIP though.

It'd be easier to do as a scheduled sealed type event where you get an entry ticket for winning a draft, then at set times 8 winners can draft again for better prizes.

My best Born of the Flame ever gave me Zakiir, Ash Harpy and Prince Talysen.
