Quote from cfusionpm »Bingo. WOTC staff parroting the same old exaggerated horror stories is fairly tilting. It means that not only do people hold these opinions at WOTC, but it's simply accepted fact in their bubble. What a shame that we, in the community, ever believed they would be capable of thinking otherwise. Time and time again, WOTC staff show their utter incompetence in grasping even the basic fundamentals of Modern. I guess I shouldn't be surprised in the least bit?Quote from tronix »Quote from The Fluff »It's just a part of the life cycle of thread. Discussions flow smoothly for days or a few weeks, then twin would be revisited one way or the other. Although I'm surprised it came back with a lot of intensity today.
in fairness it wasnt out of the blue. that whole bit in the TCC + Blake Rassmusen + Steve Sunu 'fact/fiction' interview about twin was a cock-up. the fact that it was a user/player submitted question, the way it was phrased, it being selected as something worth talking about, and the subsequent almost dismissive and unrelated response.
it just highlights how naive the community has and continues to be, and goes to show why wizards employees are often better served not saying anything at all lest it be blown out of proportion after being put under a microscope. 2 guys who likely have minimal to no say in ban/unban decisions, one of which openly said he wasnt even there when the twin ban decision was made (Steve), giving an unrelated and opinionated answer to a loaded question isnt some special insight to be used as proof/evidence of anything.
You keep harping on for the "supposed" incompetence of WotC's (and have been harping on for LITERAL YEARS) and yet, every ******* set you're being proven wrong. Especially the last 4 sets. New cards have been entering Modern and have been making an impact, a year ago 2 cards were unbanned, a month ago a problematic deck was banned.
I fail to see that "incompetence" and "failure to understand Modern". Have they said stupid things? Of course they have. If that's the only thing that, in your eyes, is worth tunnel visioning to, then we can't help you. The rest of us will enjoy the format in it's best state that it's ever been for years. We might disagree on where we want Modern to go or what we want from the format, but we're not laser focusing on a single issue that's been repeatedly shut down, both by the community and WotC themselves. Twin isn't coming back any time soon. Suck it up and deal with it.
How is it that Teysa's OBVIOUSLY sarcastic response is infracted as trolling but CFP's "obviously sarcastic isn't?
