With Set 3 Release Weekend happening on the 18th and 19th I was wondering if the Ruby Cup tournament is still going to be happening that weekend or if it will be getting changed to a different date.

No change in date. No real possibilities in July anyway.

Cue some frantic bug testing of set three cards before the Cup.

My memory isn't glorious but I'm fairly sure it worked similar with set 2 just had a lot more cards banned but played like normal.

I believe the only thing forbidden at the moment is the consumption of any beverage other than Ruby Red Squirt during the Ruby Cup.

I have no idea what that is! :p

And it seems likely that I will have to sit this out in order to participate in the release weekend. Which is a shame, I could have a lot of fun with it.

Man it's been over a decade since I last drank Squirt or Ruby Red Squirt! Do they even still make that soda? But I agree only consuming beverages with the name Ruby in their name and eating food from Ruby Tuesday's should be allowed during the Ruby Cup!

buy cards before the tournament... sell afterwards. Not a huge loss

You'd be surprised. For example in the last VIP Constructed I accidentally entered with my Set 1 ONLY Human GoreFeast Deck and I s till ended up walking away 3-1 (lost the final round 1-2 due to a couple of misplays.) But with careful planning, researching the cards and excellent theory crafting you should still be able to make a deck and do well without using a single Set 3 card...of course it wouldn't hurt to due PvE to pickup a few commons/uncommons for a safety net though :P

What about Mountain Dew: Code Red?

That's just an all-around bad idea, my friend. Stick to your AA coffee.

I went to go look up what the flavors of Tab were called, much to my surprise it wasn't just "RED."

The best red drink is Tahitian Treat obviously.
