    Happy Anniversary, we eliminated coalition events! Woo?
    Update: We did not eliminate coalition events. Since there would already be 2 weekend events running simultaneously (Tour de Ravnica and Zendikar vs Eldrazi), we wanted to try and avoid overwhelming players with adding a Coalition event on top of that.

    I'd be interested to hear the community's thoughts on whether 2 events is enough this coming weekend, or if players would be interested in playing an additional Coalition event as well. (Preferably expressing your thoughts in a separate dedicated thread, please! :) )
  • Julie71Julie71 Posts: 97 Match Maker
    I think we all need to take a break from coalition battles at least for one weekend.  And happy anniversary to mtgpq.  I may get mad at yall but I still love you. 
  • WindyWindy Posts: 71 Match Maker
    How will the eld mythic+ pull be implemented? Especially for those that already completed the set it should not be giving a dupe, 500 orb, reward.

    That would put the disadvantage of to people that are investing most in the game. 

    So hopefully it will be a M+ booster for any set in that case.... Fingers crossed
  • VeeVee Posts: 3 Just Dropped In
    Will the free mythic be released later today? Don’t see it yet.
  • GideonGideon Posts: 306 Mover and Shaker
    You would think they would have released it at midnight but they always play by their own rules. So my guess is 11:43:37am MST for no other reason than it’s completely random.
  • GideonGideon Posts: 306 Mover and Shaker
    @Brigby I am impatient. When will the free gift be given today? 
  • GrizzoMtGPQGrizzoMtGPQ Posts: 748 Critical Contributor
    @Brigby I’d love to see a coalition event added. How about HoD or AWR?
  • BrigbyBrigby ADMINISTRATORS Posts: 7,605 Site Admin
    Hi Everyone. The free gift should have been sent out now. Please check your Inbox to see if you have received it. If you haven't yet, then I'd recommend closing and re-opening the game to see if that refreshes it.

    To make matters worse, it’s not at even a pull from the entire available set. 

    Was last year’s GRN mythic + pull the same way, from a limited pool within that set? I don’t remember. I had only just started playing and was very happy to get Lazav. 

    This time I knew the gift was coming up, so figured I could nearly complete the set and pull one of the MP’s I’m missing. But alas, it’s not included in the “elite collection” pool. Happy 500 orbiversary!
     -_-

    editapparently the gift’s elite card pool will rotate as normal, though there is no timer showing that. Sorry for anyone who has the full ELD set, unless support is feeling nice, probably just 500 orbs after all.

    Thanks!  Excited to use my new toy.

    Have a full ELD set, so I'll wait till exclusives join these packs.... Might take forever though as the titans are also not in M20 yet....

    Titans were not in packs initially, but are now if you look.  They were also promptly added to crafting at the correct time.

    Yup, I can confirm this - I crafted them immediately.

    Is there a special card in preparation for the holidays season ? It is a very nice tradition to keep alive.

    Have a full ELD set, so I'll wait till exclusives join these packs.... Might take forever though as the titans are also not in M20 yet.... 
    Titans were not in packs initially, but are now if you look.  They were also promptly added to crafting at the correct time.
    Crafting yes and normal packs now as well, but I was talking about elite packs in the vault. And there they're still missing

    Is there a special card in preparation for the holidays season ? It is a very nice tradition to keep alive.
    I was wondering the same thing!
    Don't worry! There will be several more weeks of celebration, so keep an eye out for more content.

    Yes, that includes a special holiday card! ;)
