    @Magic:PQ Support Team The current list of PWs says that Lord Windgrace should be in the vault this week. However, he is not there. This screenshot was taken from the link provided above near the top of this thread.

    Hey, folks!

    We've found an issue with The Harvesttide, so it had to be replaced for The Kamigawa Run.
    We apologize for the laast minute change. We'll be working on this event so we can have it back on rotation as soon as possible. ;)

    The coalition events have so many last-minute changes that it makes the sneak peek unreliable enough to be virtually unusable.

    It’s a constant surprise on Friday mornings and a waste of my time to plan ahead.

    Better a last-minute change than lots of issues in a coalition event everyone is complaining about.
    I appreciate the decision. It shows us that they take care and responsibility.
    It really doesn't matter whether it is tht or tkr. We have all decks ready since we played both events often enough.
    The whole team is doing a great job. A big win for all of us.

    A lack of forethought is what it shows.

    I’m just tired of being an unpaid beta-tester and I feel bad for the people that pay for the privilege of beta-testing since that’s obviously not something that’s done prior to release.

    I mean honestly how difficult is it to include midnight hunt. The set with the werewolves. The set that’s made for Harvesttide. The set that is still actually in standard?!?*

    *hit me up on FTA discord and I’ll tell you my opinions on the new standard rotation schedule

    And it’s, like, whatever. because it honestly affects very little at this stage. There are so few people who actually care which event we play each weekend and, with very few exceptions, they either play or they don’t.

    The new team has made more progression in a very short time compared to the previous development.
    I wonder what message it is you want to deliver to this team?
    The new team is not responsible for past issues.

    I thought my message was pretty clear: The coalition events have so many last-minute changes that it makes the sneak peek unreliable enough to be virtually unusable.

    I am basing this on the new dev team’s actions and I feel like I’ve given them plenty of time to get their feet under them.

    With the plethora of issues the last team left unchecked. As those are getting worked on a ";" or if() from a previous problem makes something new crop up, like this weeks miraculous 150/140.
    The new team is pretty quick, and they took over what 3 months ago?, on top of releasing new content, answering when The community rallys, I'll take the midweek changes over the previous, "we've read it, and pushed it to our response team" any day

    It’s actually closer to 6 months now and this is my first “negative” comment about the new team. How long should I wait before you think it’s acceptable to express mild frustration?
