ANSWERS
  1. The Dakkon Planeswalker was released to the vault many weeks later than normal. Was there a particular issue with the Dakkon PW that caused this delay? Is this the beginning of a new trend when PWs will be available 1-2 months after the cash offering instead of 2-3 weeks?
    Answer: Thank you for your interest and feedback. There has been no particular issue with this Planeswalker. The minor delay for Dakkon, Shadow Slayer to enter the Vault was due to the Planeswalker Sale week by the end of August.

  2. With the introduction of the "Battle of the Ages" and "Jumpstart" events, the game seems like it's slowly evolving into more of a Pay-to-Play model. Taking this into account, as well as the existing Pay-to-Win model, are there any plans to increase the rewards earned in order to make the game inclusive for all players, regardless of financial status?
    Answer: Thank you for your question. Both events, Battle from the Ages and Jumpstart offer exclusive cards that can be obtained during the events. The higher entry fee for both events are in regards to this exclusive content. There are no plans for any changes to rewards in other events at the moment. 

  3. With the fact that Lose Life is now bugged so that you gain back any life lost at the end of a match, don't you think it's time to retire the "Survivor" objective from the game and remove it from all events moving forward?
    Answer: Thank you for bringing this up. The team is already aware of this issue and the fix is planned to enter in the next update. 

  4. Is the Q&A a place for you to receive feedback? I thought the MtGPQ Suggestions & Feedback subforum was for that. Do you use that? It does seem like a very quiet area of the forum.
    Answer: Thank you for the question. The Q&A is intended to be a moment of integration between the development team and the players, where we try to answer in the best possible way players' doubts and curiosities regarding the game. Sometimes we receive in the Q&A some suggestions and feedback that are read and considered by the team.There is also a space on the Forum where these suggestions can be posted by players and read by our team. This forum space also allows other players to comment with their thoughts and add other suggestions and feedback. As well as the suggestions received in the Q&A, we are always attentive to the feedback and suggestions we receive on the Forum and they are always passed on to the team!
Observation: We know that some of our answers in regards to questions about new features and questions and feedback related to your ideas seem repetitive. It has to do more with the fact that we often can't say much about upcoming features nor give an estimate on when these ideas could potentially come to the game.

    Ok, so in MTG they have release parties and drafts, when ppl can't afford to stay competitive for FnM, these release events and drafts are a great way to get cards, I understand that you tried to do that with jumpstart but let's face it, it isn't worth it, but a prerelease event you make a deck out of a few boosters and a nice rare or just regular drafts where you keep the cards you pick and make a deck and then earn rewards for how far you go.... Let's face it you pretty much need to beat of the best right now in mtgpq standard to stay competitive... And that's hard to do if you can't afford vip so why not keep it fun?
