Quote from pigsterling »A generation of woke, entitled players probably made this rumor. I don't really own that much RL, only really few. As much as I want to get my hands on some RL cards which sadly I can't, I understand the existence and importance of the RL. I think everyone should understand its existence and importance too. If you can't come to terms with its existence maybe don't get into the hobby or stop being a retard.
Not sure what politics has to do with this, but your statement seems out of place. The reserve list only favors investors, who have become a minority since the creation of the game. Nowadays, those that play the game drive MTG by far and if people stopped playing the game (which won't happen anytime soon) all colletions would cease to be valuable. That is why I believe that Wizards missed an opportunity by failing to at least revise the RL. They could have made a change to the RL while at the same time allowing investors to sell their cards for a fraction of their value. Then they could have focused on the true drivers of their product (the players) but for some reason felt threatened by a group that simply has more bark than bite (Any case brought into court would ultimately be thrown out because you can't keep a company from producing its own product).
At the end of the day, I know Hasbro / Wizards won't make any changes to the RL going forward. I accepted that a long time ago and I think everyone else should as well. As usual, greed can ruin anything and this was definitely the case here.
