- This is coming from the begging wizards of the coast to reconsider worlds page.

- Ok, so I met with Maro at worlds and spoke to him for about 20 minutes. I asked him a heap of questions about PWP's and about worlds announcement. Here is a summary of things
- 1) Wizards have admitted they were wrong on this one. They have taken dreams and hopes away from too many players. They cannot just insta revert this decision but they are working to fix things. Nationals should and quite likely will lead to something bigger - this may not be in place for Nationals 2012 however.
- 2) They have a specialist team of people in Wizards assinged the job of fixing this situation.
- 3) The PWP will change. The core principles behind it are solid and will remain in place - but the overall system will be changing. They want a fair system that rewards the right things.
- 4) Online play will be linked to your DCI number and will add to your PWP's at some point in time. This is likely 18-24 months away
- 5) Mark is equally as upset as we are about the worlds announcement.
- Also from head of branding for Magic Online:
- 6) Cube drafting will be coming to magic online next year
- 7) Phantom drafting will roll out on magic online to bring down the costs associated with online play. You pay 2 tickets and you get to draft, but you don't get to keep any of the cards you draft. There will be prize support for these drafts.
