Quote from TwinSaisQuote from Petal CollectorQuote from ToonySCG and pretty much all speculators/hoarders are a cancer on the game. They do little to nothing for the game and instead take and harm it for personal gain. It's these people that stop staples from getting reprinted in reasonable quanities, or keep the reserved list going. The game would be a thousand times better if they ceased to exist.
The day SCG goes out of business is the day I throw a party.
Yeah, all SCG does is provide a large national circuit of events for Standard and Legacy players to play in. I mean, who even looks forward to playing in one of these events? I mean, if they canceled them, I'm sure no one would mind, right?
I'm sorry if this comes off as too ranty, but seriously, can we cut down on the misinformation? The day SCG goes out of business would probably mean the game of Magic is dead/nearly dead. If you are fine with no more new cards, a drastic cut in game stores (who basically stay open on the back of Magic), less people to play with/no new players, then yeah, good riddance.
Magic would be fine without SCG or SCG events, and makes it sound like you're spreading misinformation. You're just mad at his opinion because you clearly want to profit from speculation yourself.
Clearly you misunderstand. I'm not mad at his opinion because I want to profit (if I wanted to profit on the scale you suggest, I'd open a store, not sell random cards on ebay for people who don't have ebay accounts of their own). I'm just sick of seeing all these baseless comments that contribute little to the discussion besides more whining. Attributing printing or reserved list decisions to anyone other than WotC is actual misinformation, since they are the ones making the decision. Calling SCG a "cancer on the game" and saying they do "little to nothing for the game" is misinformation, as their contributions have been pointed out by others in this thread. Also, I'm not saying that the game of Magic NEEDS SCG. I'm saying that if SCG were to go out of business, that would probably indicate that the game is dying. It would be a symptom or result, not a cause. So before you resort to a baseless personal attack, why not do some reading and logical thinking before you decide who is and who isn't spreading misinformation.

Salvation posters who whine about Magic
Re-reading the rest of this thread, it seems that most of the reasonable discussion has already happened. I'm guessing it'll be more of the whiners rather than actual informed discussion, so I guess it's time to check out of this thread.
