yes we play mw here in indy. in fact pending pandemic issues, i may be hosting a mw weekend here the weekend that would have been gencon. folks come over from fri-sun and play mw all weekend long. people come from out of state and biblo from denmark has even made such a trip.

this can serve as notice to folks that the next mw weekend will be here in indy 8/7-9 (perhaps the weekend before) depending on how may feel they are ok with coming.  the gathering will be small and i do not want people who have not been practicing proper practices such as isolating etc. to visit but i feel it should be relatively safe. i have had some already contacting me hoping for another event and with gencon being cancelled this may be at least some consolation. please contact me here or on discord and i can provide more details.

to be clear this is for one online event, not a structural change to the game sanctioned by arcane wonders.

what if instead of the arcane zap being 3 mana it was changed to 1 mana and range 0-0?

I am planning on waiting until next Wednesday to see how things are going. there is a chance the order can be revoked early. not a big chance, but still possible.

we are not holding a formal tournament this time unless people want to do that. note this is still 2 more weeks away. and we would know given the self quarantines that have been in place for over a week already that anyone attending would know if they have any symptoms and stay home.  I do agree it is not worth the risk, but I do also believe by 4/3 we will likely be in decent shape to start coming out of our cocoons.

i agree that the survey was biased towards a specific result. trying to make this new version somewhere between academy and arena. wow that would suck so much.  I think in the end they will pretty much alienate most everyone and hope to get completely new players. but the survey being biased they will get results they are expecting or hoping to get.

it is also clear there is demand out there for more arena product. people only bought academy because that was the only thing printed and it was valid in arena. for completeness in arena you had to get 2 copies of each academy release.

personally I would like to see some rules cleanup. some fixes to anomalies in the game that need clarification or resolution. perhaps fix a few broken undercosted cards. and if you have time some of the overcosted cards. then release a new core set of 4 mages for arena.

alt forcemaster, alt wizard, arena elementalist, arena (monk or some other mage).

and then release a couple mages every 9 months or so. seems like it would be super easy to get this sort of thing into print quickly.

then if you want to release something else in the same universe along the bias shown by the survey it would be a completely different game. if that is what you want then do so, but have no illusions about it being mage wars and do not market it as such if there is no backwards compatibility. I would be really mad if I bought something like mw2.0 expecting to be able to use and leverage the money I had already spent on this awesome game only to find out I cannot (and I do not mean zero % but even 10 or 20% or less backwards would be aggravating). if it is backwards compatible it needs to more or less closer to 100%. but that is just my opinion of course.

some people want new things and that is fine, just make a new game and give the demand that is out there for arena something too. no reason why you cannot do both. keep making arena products and whatever new shiny thing aw wants to put out.

it has been requested that promo cards be allowed. so all promo cards are allowed for any matches however all errata for those promo cards are in effect as well. for instance - no quick cast sandstorms or ballista in any book etc.

it has been requested that we follow the winter war ruleset for the next mw weekend (4/3-5) here as a means of generating some more data. it is fine by me. anyone have issues with that or have another suggestion? I will post the winter war link below. only a few more weeks until the event. we have several who have committed. if you are interested, please get with me here or on discord to get more details.
