Reply Adeaulize says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm You must be the dumbest Game Director to say that "the meta is in a great place right now". And holy shit, pets?! Friends list FFS! Reply to the moon says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm delete this pet and mastery grind shit Reply Eno says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Just call it Post-Modern. Jesus. Reply Jakharr Vinta/VoryoMTG says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Wait. Weren't the Ixalan-M19 sets supposed to rotate out this Fall? Reply Carecão da Brazzers fazendo cosplay de Saitama says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm 'core set mastery' é literalmente aqueles pacotes do Fortnite. Só que muito mais caro, eu paguei 19,00 no meu, em R$ vai sair mais de 80,00. Reply Nick Warren says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Next time I'll just ask for pets so you add something different. Reply thomas payton says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm it wont let me update my Arena so i cant play the game it keeps saying log into the forum and ext the game i reinstalled it nothing Reply V1VoR says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Dont lead to your own demise. you see a cool fashion that works for a bit because ppl are not smart enough and try to apply a battle pass here ? Wizards, you have a fan base that IS ALWAYS paying you for the great time you donate to them via your game. and they are paying a lot. You actually used to organise Damn weekend events for people to play hands on. you understand the depth of your game and its own population and yet you press a MUST LOG IN EVERY day model ??? 1k exp per day or your leveling system ? are you fucking nuts? this is not fortnite! you dont have a player base of 15y olds. are you out of money?? Ask for them by giving something out and dont try to TRICK people. because battle pass is tricking. you got 87 days till release of the next mastery system and dont HIDE behind bonus exp weekends. Fire the one that thought that. OR make the timelock you WANT to press weekly… it is a TCG for god sake. not some CRAP BR Reply snooper 177 says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm I AM BUY PET AS SOON AS MAINTENECE OVER Reply basil fawlty says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Apparently Jay and I got the same problem : closing eyes too long when thinking while speaking 😉 Reply Tyler Schilling says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm the current meta of control is trash Reply Greyplaysandslays says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Man just add Kaladesh and Ahmonket then add a commander. The current way to play is Magic Online and it is so janky. Arena Commander would be so fluid and awesome Reply dunderminnet says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm In paper mtg you use your own playmat (usually) when playing mtg. Can people expect something like that implemented in mtg arena? Reply Meaty Ogre88 says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm With all the money being printed by WotC/Hasbro, one would think they could afford sweatshirts with logos not needing to be safety pinned on. Looks like something my mom did for me in cub scouts. Reply Drew Fletcher says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Yay.. WotC gets greeedy by adding pets and a battlepass… Man, keep it up and you will lose players before you're even out of beta. Reply MetalShredMaddNESS says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm I can only hope this is a stepping stone to getting at least modern on Arena. Maybe by adding one modern set 2 or 3 times a year to this new format. Reply Arjun Sharda says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Older sets/ friends list would be really cool too tho Reply Arjun Sharda says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm <3 Arena Reply xavier morales says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm I swear holding back amonhket and kaladesh is the stupidest idea I have ever heard, even worse then getting pets. I was excited for historic now I'm completely disappointed. I'll just stop playing arena entirely. Reply iReflex says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Well thats just stupid Reply ArmoredNeko says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Dev please. Friend list, the ability to lend your friend your deck, 2HG, etc, etc. You add pets before those???? Way to spend your development time. Reply Bloodmaster says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Why don’t you guys actually listen to your community, not the corporate suites milking us for every penny.. no one wanted PETS. This is the dumbest thing.. we want other formats, older cards, AND A GD FRIENDS LIST.. every game has a friends list… Jesus Christ y’all dumb. Reply 0AbsolutZero0 says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Magic is dying. If you can't sell based on the product and you need to resort to cheap bullshit like pets then this game is doomed Reply Skilled Apple says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm I know everyone is hating on the pets, but I’m actually excited for them. I’ve been wanting more ways to kinda express my personality. Which I know is weird, but I like it. Now let’s ban teferi 😀 Reply Jay eff says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Really? Pets? This was the most reasonable thing to include? Not adding any well liked Formats? Not announcing Releases for console or mobile? Not finally leaving the Beta-Phase after almost a year of open beta? Not adding a real Friends list? It had to be pets to be added, the most relateable Thing to MtG Reply lolimmune says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm "Great meta" …………. Reply Victor Fox says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Pets?Why??? Reply sciemk says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Wotc please sell the mtg license to a proper company that will listen to the community, and you could open a pet store instead. Reply Wawa Clan Studio says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Put Arena on Mac Reply The Gary Daniel says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Is it just me or does Jay Parker have a really slow blink speed? Reply Bro Cobra says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm I want all the sets not just this standard. It's like saying vanilla is the different after you put ice cubes on top… wtf? Reply Edwin Vancleeef says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm The Teferi players liked this, fellow esper haters let us unite against this atrocity … DISLIKE THE VIDEO. Also wtf pets ? xD Reply Bolderox says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Why does the communith manager have a nice shirt but the game director has to pin a cutout of one on his hoody… Reply Robert Richards says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm If you’re going to refuse to put back kld and amk and support historic then let me dust my damn cards. I wasted wc’s buying duals for what I thought was going to be a baller format but you guys were just too smooth brained to see it. We were promised a way for us to continue enjoying our cards but you made a format no one would want to play. I feel like my money has been stolen. Reply Marcusishere - says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm One guy in the room:Hey guys, should we maybe ban some cards?I mean the meta isn’t in a very healthy condition. Mono red is too fast and Esper Control is too good at dealing with everything. Or maybe we should make the game friendlier to new and free to play players by making gold gems and wildcards more accessible. Everyone else in the room: nah, let’s just add cats. Reply Shaun Cordingley says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm I know the MTGA developers don't design the cards, but you're lying to yourselves if you think the meta is "in a good place". Reply Federico Pettinicchio says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm We've been playing this standard for way too long and way more than any other standard due to the accessability of MTGA(more than 1 billion games played). We are burned out of our minds, nobody wants to basically keep playing this standard right now, I hope that when nobody plays it you'll realize that we want something fresh not a simple card dumpster. Reply Khent Ramirez says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm not bringing Amonkhet and Kaladesh to Historic would just make it a Standard+ gamemode wouldn't it? Reply Fel Totem says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm They hired someone from valve’s Dota battlepass, and jammed it into mtga. First the SJWs, mpl fiasco, and now this ugly monetisation play. Time to play another game. Who knows what harebrained idea they gonna force on players next. Gonna stop investing my time and money since the bosses at mtga do not inspire my confidence in the future of the game. Reply EnDDarK DoMaiN says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm With 10 comments I read, I felt discouraged to continue development and I'm not even a game developer. Reply Chocolate Giddyup says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm Pets, because distracting animations and eye candy are what people look for in a card game. I felt like thinks were going downhill when they introduced those card backs with the noises and animation. Reply Chocolate Giddyup says: July 2, 2019 at 7:24 pm "We think the standard meta is in a great place right now." 8/10 decks in traditional ranked are TeferiEsper.dec…what a time to be alive.
