QQ: Sealed Events

26.02.2012 | 13:07 |

[p]When asked about why they love to attend larger events like a YCS, most players are quick to reply that they enjoy the fierce competition as well as meeting new and existing friends. We on the other hand love to see some of the newly released cards live in action and learn about their impact on competitive play first hand.[br]
To become familiar with these cards when they are first released, there’s always the Sneak Peeks held in local stores around the world. This is where most players first got in touch with the Sealed Pack format and today, we would like to elaborate on that a little. After all, [bped] is just around the corner…

[b]Chris:[/b] “I have played in a number of Sneak Peeks and I enjoyed them a lot! All players start in the same spot, it doesn’t matter if you’ve been collecting cards forever or not.”[br]
[b]Dennis:[/b] “I’ve also played in a number of Sneak Peeks already and had quite a blast!”
[/p][p]
[b]What’s your general opinion on Sealed?[/b]
[/p][p]
[b]Chris:[/b] “I actually prefer the Sealed format. You have to make good deckbuilding decisions in little time and if you come out winning, you know that you must have done something right!”[br]
[b]Dennis:[/b] “I think both formats have something going for them. Sealed is always a nice change, so I like that it spices things up.”
[/p][p]
[b]What do you think about the upcoming Battle Pack?[/b]
[/p][p]
[b]Dennis:[/b] “I’m looking forward to trying it out. I had a quick look over the list of cards that will be included there and it certainly sounds promising!”
[b]Chris:[/b] “Ever since I heard that [tour guide] will get a reprint together with [adreus], I was excited for the Battle Pack! I really want to give it a try, after all, you might end up with 3 [wotbf] and I can’t imagine anything more fun!”

[b]Aleksa:[/b] “Yes, all the time! I really enjoyed the [orcs] Sneak Peek and look forward to future ones.”

[b]What’s your general opinion on Sealed?[/b]
[/p][p]
[b]Aleksa:[/b] “It needs to be balanced in terms of getting lucky and pulling some of the good cards and being able to outplay your opponent. I don’t enjoy it too much when it’s all about pulling the monsters with the big stats, there should also be some cards in the set that allow you to fight back against them.”

[b]Aleksa:[/b] “It seems mighty fine! The [tour guide] reprint makes it extremely appealing and I’m certain a lot of people are looking forward to it a lot!”

[b]Dustin:[/b] “I played in a number of Sneak Peeks already and always had a good time.”[br]
[b]Andreas:[/b] “Of course! Mostly Sneak Peeks so far.”
[/p][p]
[b]What’s your general opinion on Sealed?[/b]
[/p][p]
[b]Andreas:[/b] “I would definitely like to play it more often. It’s always different as you never know what you’ll be opening, so you’re always in for a surprise.”[br]
[b]Dustin:[/b] “As we’re usually playing a lot of Constructed, I really appreciate the different feel of the Sealed format. So yeah, I’m all for it!”
[/p][p]
[b]What do you think about the upcoming Battle Pack?[/b]
[/p][p]
[b]Dustin:[/b] “It gives players a chance to get their hands for some of the sought after cards for a much lower price. I think it’s a great starting point for younger players and that’s why I’m looking forward to it.”[br]
[b]Andreas:[/b] “I agree with Dustin. I will definitely give it a try and see how the Sealed will turn out with it!”

[b]Peter:[/b] “I’ve played in a couple of Sealed events. It’s a nice change compared to Constructed, but you really need to get lucky when it comes to what you’re opening. It can be blessing or a curse!”
[/p][p]
[b]What’s your general opinion on Sealed?[/b]
[/p][p]
[b]Peter:[/b] “While I prefer Constructed generally, I think Sealed holds a lot of potential. I really would like to see how it turns out with the Battle Pack.”

[b]Peter:[/b] “It’s a really nice idea, I also like the new rarities. I’m curious to find out if it will really deliver the best Sealed experience ever and I can’t wait to find out! The reprints are like an additional goodie, so there’s nothing to complain about.”

[p]It certainly seems like the [bped] will be one of the most popular products in 2012. I also had some conversaions about the set with some of the people involved in the designing process and everybody ensured me that a lot of work went into it. I’m really glad it paid out in this way and I’m already looking forward to playing a few games of Sealed myself!
