    Love the mid week coalition event.  My weekdays are way more open than weekends!   Also, you guys really should have updated the HoD Elspeth event earlier so that people could have bought her while in the vault last week.  Some angry folks will show.
    Or you can put elspeth in the vault again next week

    Again, the perfect event for during the week is during the weekend, and the week will be a grind. That's just my opinion, still.. Meh.

    But way more important: an event with a required planeswalker that is not available in the vault? Really? That's pointless.

    This has to be an oversight, as it seems like a big miss from the business aspect of this game... why would you ever put something out that requires a purchased element (in this case a PW for crystals), then not offer that element for sale?  At the very least it would get people to use their crystals, especially on an item that has been declining in value with newer substitutes...

    I'm one of those personally affected, so figured I'd post here just as an actual example, and not a theoretical one.

    I've been playing about 2 months now, grinding through story mode and just getting around to taking the game very seriously, I've made a couple of significant purchases and joined a coalition.

    Then I immediately learn that my first coalition event is one I won't be able to participate in, since I've bought several planewalkers, but Elspeth wasn't one of them.

    It makes me feel very 'meh' about the coordination of the next level aspects of the game I was previously looking forward to quite a bit.

    I'm absolutely against featured PW in colitions events.

    I'm quite surprised they didn't add her to the Vault with her event coming up.

    You can still reach full progression in the event without her; though, it is difficult. However, you won't be able to get very high in terms of personal ranking without her and that severely handicaps any newer players who haven't had a chance to acquire Elspeth at this point.

    I haven't groaned this hard in a while. I'm glad we're heard . 'Don't give us a 5 node, midweek event' ... Here, have this 5 node , midweek event. But don't worry, the weekend event is only 2. Hod elspeth is a nice change from awkward bolas fest. I'm still waiting for the time when the pw ends up in the vault without the community whining for it, but at least we'll be back to the normal bolas concentration. And weeeeeee. God Pharaoh . I hate it, but I'll take it over boft . Overall 6/10. I'm not mad , but I'm not gonna do a jig , either
