    July VIP Tournaments are now Sealed

    Hello everyone,

    There’s currently a bug where in Constructed tournaments (Gauntlet not affected), cards lose their socketed gems between rounds. Due to this bug, we will be switching VIP tournaments to Sealed Deck for this month. Prizes will be granted just like Sealed Deck VIP. Release Celebration cards will also be awarded. Next month will be Constructed.

    July VIP Sealed Deck
    Players: 16 minimum – 256 maximum
    Format: 4 rounds of Swiss
    Entry fee: VIP ticket + 1400 plat (or 6 booster packs and 200 plat)

    Prizes:
    4 wins: 10 packs / 2 Alternate Art Carnasaurus / 2 Alternate Art Valiant Escort / Alternate Art Duplicitous Duke / Alternate Art Brightmoon Brave
    3 wins: 8 packs / 1 Alternate Art Carnasaurus / 1 Alternate Art Valiant Escort / Alternate Art Duplicitous Duke / Alternate Art Brightmoon Brave
    2 wins: 4 packs / 1 Alternate Art Carnasaurus / 1 Alternate Art Valiant Escort / Alternate Art Brightmoon Brave
    1 win: 2 packs / Alternate Art Brightmoon Brave
    0 wins: 1 pack / Alternate Art Brightmoon Brave

    I was wondering about that when I looked at the tourney queues and saw VIP Sealed events lined up instead of Constructed. I was starting to worry that maybe Alzheimer's was the cause of my confusion.

    I get why you're doing this, but after how much plat I had to dump to get a deck ready for this event, this is pretty disappointing, especially since apparently constructed gauntlet doesn't give event rewards either.

    OK fair enough.

    I was wondering how the hell I'd forgotten to socket my cards in my last Gauntlet attempt

    Yay sealed!

    Also from a player perspective. Having a Constructed 'Story'-3-only tournament 3 days after a 'story' launch is tough.

    Maybe consider aligning the VIP Sealeds/Constructed better with story launches, so that a constructed tournament isn't 3 days in to a brand new story where no one has any cards yet.

    That's quite the bummer. I didn't care to miss the constructed VIP because of the release celebration (since I don't play constructed much), but now I'm missing a Sealed? I understand that Constructed is butted and you have to do it, but why change next month's? I'll have been deprived of 2 months' worth of VIP sweetness :-(
