    Hello guys,

    The weekend event was defined:

    Hour of Devastation
    Deck Restriction: Legacy
    Opt-In Time: 05/05/2022 20:00 UTC
    Start Time: 05/06/2022 20:00 UTC
    End Time: 05/09/2022 18:00 UTC

    As we've received some feedback about the Resilient objective: "Take 10 or less damage during a single fight.", the team chose to replace it with the Terraform objective:  "Cast 2 or more Land supports during a single fight."
    We hope you enjoy the event 😊

    Rebeca.

    @Oktagon_Support There are 3 varieties of HOD where  you need either Elspeth, Sun's Nemrsis, Samut, the Tested or Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh to play the top node of HOD. Which version of HOD are we playing next weekend?

    And... make sure the respective walker is available in the vault so people can actually play all the nodes.

    NB1 is in the vault and on sale, so I'm guessing it's him.
    EDIT: But they did mention fixing the left node of Samut's version, so...

    Just double checking.... Ground supports are land supports, right?

    @Oktagon_Support we do have people asking if ground supports are limited to just land.

    @Oktagon_Support and being the top node is restricted to either b1, elspeth and samut could we have clarification on that walker its not listed.

    Immediately when she wrote the post it said Lands and for some reason she has later edited the post to say "Ground supports" so I expect it is lands only.

    Hello guys,
    First, sorry for the confusion with the objective, I think the keyboard suggestions did something without me realizing it. The correct objective is: "Cast 2 or more Land supports during a single fight."
    In addition, the Planeswalker of the top node will be Nicol Bolas, God-Pharaoh, who is on sale in the vault until May 11th.

    Just wanted to add some feedback that I dislike the new, easier Terraform objective. It's right that the game cater for all levels of skill, but personally I preferred the harder "Take 10 or less damage during a single fight." objective. I like to see at a few harder events in rotation, like A Timeless Voyage, for example, which I think is the hardest event in the game right now.

    The objective change is likely do to some recent changes regarding take damage vs lose of life.  There seems to be a distinction between the two, and the resilience objective isnt set up to recognize that distinction.

    I agree having difficult objectives can be desirable when done right, but in this specific case it's probably not worth the headache dealing with a potential bug (whether its a real bug or just a perceived one) on an objective.

    Also I thought this was worth mentioning:

    According to my notes, for at least a couple of HoDs towards the end of it's run, the "Destroy 3 or more opposing creatures during a single fight" erroneously only counted zombie creatures being destroyed.

    Have you checked that objective is working correctly?
