Tales from #MTG – Resurrection
The Magic community on Twitter is amazing. If you’re a Magic player and you’re not actively on Twitter you need to start. Wizards is a unique company that actually engages their fans through social media platforms. I’ve had my questions personally answered by the Lead Designer of the game that I enjoy playing several times and this is just par for the course when you fire up Twitter. I also loved a certain article series that was created by @RevisedAngel that each week she would curate twenty tweets that defined the Magic community pulse in an easy to digest article that was loved by all. She moved on to bigger and better things and it seems like that style of article is no longer being written. It was required reading for me each week and I am resurrecting the format because I loved it. So here it is, the first edition of Tales from #MTG.
Really enjoyed playing Legacy at #GPDC but the turnaround time made the event miserable; 9 rounds shouldn't take 12 hours

One day, complaining not enough females play #MTG. Next day, arguing for allowing pornographic alters. Sometimes this community… *sigh*

Better response: "Sorry guys for being flippant and irresponsible. I was angry and overreacted. But at least change is coming." #mtgo

You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what @bmkibler wants.

@Top8Games I've been trying to engage in reasonable dialogue for 2 years and gotten nowhere. Running into a brick wall finally got old.

So @mtgworth kept FoW hostage for years in order to "protect" values of cards, then pulls this stunt? Just wow.

@Dr_Jeebus so, "I would rather be valued as a customer and suffer through bad MTGO than have WOTC listen to Kibler and fix MTGO?"
