Hello Community Members,

On behalf of the casting team, Alucard, Dino and I would like to thank everyone for your positive feedback and motivational words. We understand the tremendous responsibility that we have been given and our goal is to provide a Professional, Informative and Entertaining broadcast for new and old viewers alike.

In preparation for the Invitational, we are pleased to announce that we will be hosting live events on our twitch channels. These events will allow us to improve and refine our casting/interviewing skills as well as provide prizes for those who wish to participate. All of the individual events will lead up to a culminating tournament hosted by Alucard for his end of month Hextravaganza.

We are calling these events the "CASTING COLOSSEUM" and here is how you can participate:

Really cool idea. I hope people show up for it. Would potential candidates to play in this need to be available all of those times or would you set a time for them to play beforehand?

Ducklett,

Players who wish to participate would just need to login and be ready to go when we are streaming live. We will randomly select players to battle our gladiators and try to win those draft packs.

Thanks for the question.

Great initiative.

Since you are using Skype, just was using another Twitch stream whose stream got DDOSed through Skype, he also got his twitch, amazon & email hacked on stream for good measure. Apparently going to [skype > tools > options > advanced > connections > "tick" allow direct connections to your contacts only] will help you avoid these types of Skype DDOS attacks.

The deadline for signing up for the Casting Colosseum tournament is quickly approaching. There are still a few spots left.

I believe this in direct conflict with the five shards monthly tournament. I am sorry if it is, I had committed to that first. I could double queue on my second account with the same deck I submitted since players are needed my IGN would be "thehouse".
