Quote from Onering »
Are we still pretending that the winner wasn't planned? When the story reasons for this ending were so clear that people called the details of it?
The "voting" and geocaching was a marketing ploy. It was always going to the sun Empire and the next set was always going to be them invading the Legion. This was set up in stories released before the "results" were in. Not that I'm complaining about the outcome, it will be interesting to see the reverse Invasion, but this was the plan all along.
yeah that kinda reeks of Scars of Mirrodin: they give you the illusion of actually having a say in the outcome, when it was determined when they first concepted the set.
