“The vault’s ultimate prize wasn’t exactly what Kellan had imagined”

An ancient vault hiding untold raw magic has been discovered on Thunder Junction. A mysterious, anonymous benefactor has hired the fae Planeswalker, Oko, for a job: seize whatever is inside. But no matter how clever and charismatic he is, Oko knows he can’t do this alone. The vault is guarded by the Hellspurs, Thunder Junction’s deadliest criminal gang–not to mention every other outlaw who wants a piece of the power pie. So Oko uses the Omenpaths to recruit a gang of ragtag, rip-roaring, villains from Magic’s history to pull off the Greatest Heist in the Multiverse!

    I don't see any individual ranking rewards. Plus progression rewards are posted twice. One for 90 ribbons and once for 80 ribbons. Which one is correct

    I had posted the Bonus Progression Rewards instead of Individual Rank Rewards. Fixed. ;)

    Thanks!

    Yeah, this is reeeeally unbalanced seeming. This event is an uninteresting struggle :-/

    The 80 points progression reward was not a super pack. It was just a regular pack.

    Quick tip:

    The Fomori Vault text looks like it says:
    “When a nontoken Outlaw creature enters the battlefield under your opponent’s control: Create a Mega Bomb token. Whenever you take damage, you take 999999 damage less.”

    However, this isn’t the case. This is another instance where poor wording, sequencing, or formatting confuses players. In reality, it acts as:

    “1. When a nontoken Outlaw creature enters the battlefield under your opponent’s control: Create a Mega Bomb token.

    1. Whenever you take damage, you take 999999 damage less.”

    In other words, as long as the Vault is on the board, Greg can’t be damaged unless you generate over 1,000,000 damage (which can be done, yes).

    I lost my first game because I had no way to destroy the Vault. I erroneously thought that the Mega Bomb was a token support that prevented damage while it was on the board. Greg couldn't beat me--his entire board was disabled--but I had no way to win. Thought I'd try to save some of you the confusion.

    I thought that whole thing was confusing because I didn’t realize that your opponent would be essentially immortal. By saying “you” in the description I thought they were talking to…you know, me, lol

    Obscura Interceptor can remove the support without destroying/triggering it

    The fact that it's impossible to know what the Mega Bomb, Take The Loot, and Protect the Vault supports do from the event description in-app is pretty unhelpful. This event is tough once you know the rules, and worse if you only have some of the information. Please add these to the event description in-app.

    I got 120 points at the end of the event and ranked 2nd? How? Max points, perfect run.

    @khurram hey, thanks for pointing it out!
    Indeed, it was missed when transcribing the information. The usual Super Pack turned Elite Pack for the highest points tier (90, in this case) but for 80 the rewards is supposed to be a Booster Pack.
    I got it fixed in the docs above. :)

    @madwren @MforVendetta @fishiwan Thanks a bunch for talking about the communication aspect of this event. It is very helpful to see how you folks receive information about the event so we can improve our ways of delivering it.

    @Cfwraith Yes, one player had more points than they should. "/ This issue is under investigation.

    One problem you face is that if card text reads one way in English, and then operates differently, people are very frustrated. A lot of these are grammar/syntactical errors that probably are challenging in translation.

    In this case, the "Whenever you take damage, you take 999999 damage less." needed to be not indented . Ideally, it'd have an empty line between it. However, the indent makes it seem like it's part of the dependent clause following the colon.
