    I can't see my pack. Are they still going out?

    You hadn't yet posted your thread as the packs went around. I've been visiting people today, but I'm back now & doing the rounds.

    Edit: You haven't posted a thread still!

    Okay, we'll work with that. I'll start posting the packs right away!

    Can you give some more details about the thread creation and the basics about drafting in forums in general.
    What should I do - and what not to.

    First time for me. Smile

    Well, I suggest simply looking at the threads from last year's duplicate draft. You can look at for example mirrorentity's thread. I post the pack, you reply with the pick (and preferably a quick explanation for the pick), and then I post the next pack, etc.

    If everyone in the draft checks in regularly, you can expect somewhere around 5 picks a day. If one or more people are visiting less often (say, once a day), you can expect 1-2 picks a day. We'll see.

    Oh, and if you change your mind, post a new post rather than edit your previous post. Otherwise I might not see the edit until it's too late. But there's always a chance that I'll have passed the pack to your neighbor already, so making up your mind before you post is recommended.

    Yeah, you can go ahead and create your threads now. Let me know if you have any issues, but in theory those who have signed up should have access (it's the topmost forum in the Limited forum).

    We'll start when we hit 24 & people have made their threads. I'll PM people who haven't made their thread yet when we have 24.

    How are you going to generate the packs?

    These are real packs I have opened myself. They are from different situations though; some are from Modo, some from various IRL drafts, so it's eminently possible to have multiples of the same rare show up, etc.

  • posted a message on Was Olivia as oppressive in 3x ISD as Drana was in 3x RoE?
    I didn't really feel like Drana was that oppressive either, to be honest. There were a number of commons that dealt with her, so although she was clearly incredibly strong and a first pick slam, she was no Pack Rat in my book.

    But she was more oppressive than Olivia simply due to the fact that she was rare while Olivia was mythic. But Olivia was one of the top three cards in the set; the others being Devil's Play and Bloodline Keeper. I don't think we ever really managed to conclude which of them was the best one, but if Olivia had been single color, I'm pretty sure it'd have been her.

    And yes, Memory's Journey is not a card you can cut. That's the kind of card that makes Innistrad great!

    I lost internet access for three days, awkwardly enough. I'm visiting my parents, who live in a quite rural area, and a strong gust of wind uprooting a tree or whatever can randomly kill the internet for several days. Here's hoping this won't happen again while the draft is going on.

    In any case, Feyd has been setting up the forum, meaning that once we have enough players we can get rolling. At the moment we're at 21, and whether we go for 3 or 4 tables depends on how fast we get the remaining three. The nature of the draft does not permit one table starting later, as that way the people on that table would know who they'd be drafting with. But this also means that it looks like everyone will get to participate, provided you respond to this thread within the next day or two.

    Also, this forum software does not allow me to pull off some shenanigans that result in me effecively creating threads in your name, like I could on vB (i.e. last year). As such, you need to post your own thread once the forum is up and running. I'll let you know when you can do this, and when you can, the sooner you create the thread the better.

    Signups for Duplicate Draft #2 (for real this time) are up, get in there!

    Too bad about Milan. I'm assuming you have insurance so you'll at least get your money back? Anyway, so this was my first year since 2006 where I didn't attend any GPs. I'm roughly 95% sure I'll attend at least one next year though, probably at least two. Planning to go to the Modern Masters insanity GP thingy as well as the Team GP in Florence. But I'm still saving up for a house, and frequent GP attendance will serve to delay that purchase. I'm currently looking at buying sometime around January-February 2016, so after that I'll presumably have more money for travelling a bit. Depends on how I feel about it then, of course, but now I'm fairly excited about the prospect of playing in tournaments again. It's been a while.

    Sign up (again) here, we'll get this rolling very shortly!

    I know I said I'd be using the same signups, but I didn't want to risk people having left the forum or something since signing up. After all, it's been a couple of months. However, you'll be prioritized if you already signed up in this thread.
