I know this is a dumb question, but is preregistration possible this year? If so, I'd like to do it.

I am a firm believer that there is such a thing as a dumb question (although I also appreciate the sentiment of the expression that there is not).  However, this would not be one of them.

MP booster is and will always be the way to go. You will not change my mind.

Free open categories! That's pretty great!

Will the new participant promos be tournament legal at Nats? Meaning once you receive a set for completing a category can you put then in your deck for the next one?

Since both cards will be available prior to Nats with different art I don’t see why not. But the final decision isn’t up to me.

If you voted for 2 player booster then you are a Liberal. Change my mind.

So, I hate politics because... well, it’s political.

Anyway, while I can appreciate the humor of the comments that have been made, I do want to point out that the comments could end up inadvertently offending people. Besides hijacking the Nats thread, while I believe all of the comments so far have been in jest, it would probably be best for them not to go any further.

For clarification, I am not offended in the least.  I try to stay out of politics and am not easily offended by extremes on either side.  I am simply trying to make sure we are respectful and not create unnecessary Strife.

In regard to 2P vs MP booster, I think it’s interesting that 2P votes have significantly exceeded MP votes. Personally, I think more strategy is required in 2P than MP because you actually have to build a solid deck (which I am guessing is the original intent of booster) rather than just get the strongest Heroes and no defense. I also appreciate 2P from the standpoint of collection purposes because you can intentionally draft a defensive card without feeling like you are sacrificing your ability to win any games because you didn’t get that mediocre offensive card that has big numbers.

I like 2 player booster solely because of the intrinsic flaw multi player Redemption has: you can lose without ever interacting with the winning player. In constructed this is slightly helped by dominants so you usually get at least some interaction options but in booster those basically don't exist.

So far pretty good turn out on the poll that has only been up a week.  I'm going to leave it for at least another week, just to see if there is any swaying.  I'm totally fine with trying to convince other people for your side of the fence for booster, just don't do it here please!  Anyways, after this poll is done we will be voting on what sets we would like to see in booster, followed by a very interesting and possibly new feature at Nationals (after the sets)!

Even though I abhor our 'PC' culture, yes, our posts were joking. You could easily swap liberal for the other side and it could still work (maybe even more so). ;)

I made my stance on 2p vs Mp booster some time ago, so I won't go digging that up. It's just a shame that my favorite category is being warped into something else. But I won't make a big deal out of it if the majority leans that way. If both were offered it would be perfect, but I'm not too interested in making the trip to nats to play something I don't enjoy.  :2cents:

I'm hoping for the day where we can have both types of Booster offered.  Obviously for that to happen we would have to split it at ALL tournament levels for the RNRS points to go to the correct place.  As crazy as it is, I would actually play both boosters over the other categories.

At one point I suggested replacing T1 MP with Booster MP (and thus offering both 2P and MP Booster).

I don't dislike T1 MP like some do, but I do think Booster MP would be the more popular category of the two.

Not crazy, because I would do the same. And I know at least one other person who would as well, so there must be others. :thumbup:

If you voted for 2 player booster then you are a Liberal. Change my mind.

Jehoshaphat....Imo, 2-player booster is better when there are inexperienced players in the field, and multi boost is better when everyone knows what to do (and can remember what to do Ryan). If that doesn't change your mind I'll your dip your Leviathan collection in Tartaros  sauce and make you eat it.
