Thread: So...Release Celebration on 4 days notice?

    So...Release Celebration on 4 days notice?

    Some weeks ago, I made A little request regarding the release of Set 3 asking to please not have the release celebration be announced on a short notice and well, that's exactly what we've gotten now.

    Now don't get me wrong I understand the launch had to be postponed and I'm all for it. Also I understand the next weeks are already packed with events and you don't want to have a release celebration weeks after the release but still... I can't help to feel a little salty about it.

    I took quite an effort to free up last weekend because I wanted to play as much as I could in the release celebration. That included trading around some obligations from last weekend to this weekend - something I couldn't change back once we had the official word on Thursday. In effect, I won't be able to play at all that coming weekend. I might be able to manage a draft or two on Monday but that's about it.

    That means not only am I missing on the fun of having a LAN with 3 of my friends and drafting all weekend, those release events have an actual major monetary value as well. Looking at AA Filk Ape a single copy of the Duke is probably paying for 4-5 drafts alone, while a single common AA pays for 1-2 boosters on the AH. Now I don't claim to be the best draft player around, I'm not by a huge margin, but I'm confident I would have won some of those drafts. Since I'm kind of a Collector as well I'm now not only not winning any copies to sell but I actually have to buy 4 copies to complete my playset.

    I know things can't be undone and nobody wanted to postpone the Set in the first place, but still, pretty please, try to avoid putting up events on such short notice in the future. I love Hex from the bottom of my heart and I'm more than willing to schedule around those events, but I really can't do so within several days. Especially if I already tried to schedule for the weekend before.

    Well, thanks for reading, still loving you guys <3

    So u would of rather them delay the set by weeks so u had notice?!

    As for only delay the celebration, it doesn't make sense for it to be a month after release...

    The solution harsh as it may be is to not putt all eggs in one basket. Having a day each weekend is safer than 2 in 1 and 0 the other.

    VIP users have nothing to do with release celeb AA's
    Larger playerbase perhaps, and new faster ways to farm AA's might have more to do with it than anything else. IMO, farming in Gauntlet will be the fastest way, and the least challenging would be farming in daily sealed (3+ winners for every 16+ competing)
