I don't think that contract can supersede state or national laws. Or the business owner's right to conduct their business on their property.

>quick rundown
two years of Standard being nigh-unplayable straight (since War of the Spark), which everybody thought culminated in the release of Ikoria which added cards to the game that consumed 90% of the meta of EVERY format from Vintage to Standard. Then they released Zendikar Rising, including the glorious WTF were they thinking new Omnath, which again is dominating EVERY format.

Then, in a single day, they produced a ban announcement that killed the only deck in Standard that was competing with Omnath without touching Omnath or *even mentioning him*, AND released a Secret Lair (Limited print run, only purchaseable on a specific date directly from WotC for 50 bucks) that includes new (mechanically unique, never-before-printed), black border, tournament legal cards featuring characters from the popular, long-past-its-prime AMC show "The Walking Dead"

Norman Reedus is a MTG character now, and the only way you can get him is by offering your supple buttocks to WotC. Standard is worse after the ban than it is before, and now we have non-canon characters from a fucking zombie TV show that are tournament legal. Pic related is a real card that you can play in eternal formats.

>> No.75199000

>>75198960
For sure. Ever since WAR, the game has been a non-stop train wreck. Standard has had constant bannings, to the point we're at more bans now than even the heights of affinity or combo. There are decks in Legacy that are made almost entirely of cards printed post-WAR, and they are the top of the meta.

Power creep runs rampant.

I still can't get over just how bad Lurrus and the other Companions were. In all my time playing MTG (Since Ice Age), I have never seen the meta of every format get entirely consumed by a single mechanic faster and more completely. Phyrexian Mana doesn't even compete with how totally Companion ass-raped the game.

Every format, from Vintage to Standard, was 90% Companion decks meta. The only decks that weren't Companion were the ones people didn't update and brought into tournaments not knowing what was going on. Every single game was just a Lurrus v Lurrus mirror match. the mechanic was so bad, the game became basically unplayable and they had to do a *full, functional errata* so that EVERY companion's casting cost was increased by 3 generic mana. ON TOP of that, they had to ban several of them across formats. and they still see play

Judges have to pay to be judges, new cards are from harry potter, the walking dead, MLP, strong feminist powaa, etc.. If you don't show support to BLM your DCI get cancelled.

Planeswalkers are something that could have gone either way, and for a while they were handling them responsibly.

>> No.75199612

I think they could fix planeswalkers by changing the rules.
In the lore, you were a planeswalker, so both mechanically and fluff wise, owning a planeswalker is playing two people against one.

So planeswalkers should simply be treated as players.
Every card that hurts "each" opponent should hurt each player and each planeswalker.
Sure, cards like rankle would become super pushed and might warrant a ban, but I think it is healthy in the long run to do this.

Representation matters because it helps empower people. This builds an emotional connection with the medium in which the likeness is represented. "Hope" is a good thing, if you examine it on the grounds of its overall contribution to human progress - positively motivated people do better things.

The problem is when emotional connections, "hope" included, are exploited for monetary gain. In MTG's case, it doesn't matter whether representation fits into the setting; shove it in anyway because people who would otherwise not pay for the product will now give you money. Short-term financial gains are what drives the change, because corporate culture demands constant financial growth. Statements to the contrary are frequently made for PR reasons, and objections are denounced or swept under the rug.

I'm not saying there's a right or wrong here. I'm saying that the monetary reasons for the changes in MTG are obvious enough to spot and difficult to ignore.

Because you are not escaping the lack of power that some people feel. Which is perfectly fine. There are lots of valid reasons to leave the real world behind for a while - relaxation, engaging a narrative, getting that victory high. I'm simply telling you that "representation" matters for the people whose escapism is tied to power issues in the real world. Creators who come from a background that experiences the power disparity from the lacking side often try to tell stories with those perspectives; these stories are sometimes embraced by society as "different" and "unique" and promoted; this leads other "disadvantaged" individuals to be inspired to "make something of themselves". You could call this the "organic" version, because the motives of the creator can be assumed to be geniune.

By contrast, corporations only look at the bottom line. When a corporation takes a stance of some sort, it's because the corporation believes the stance will increase its profits. Sometimes it's "jumping on the bandwagon":
>Nobody thought Harry Potter was something you could sell, but turns out it's a moneymaker, we need to churn out more!
Sometimes it's because companies have completely ignored a demographic, which is actually affluent enough to spend on the product
>Why the hell are Family Guy DVDs selling out? The ratings are in the toilet! Who is buying them!
(It was all the kids who didn't have Nielsen boxes on their TVs, so their viewership wasn't being noticed.)

Point is, when inclusion is done well, you don't notice or question it. When inclusion is done poorly, it's a sore spot. Do you remember Alesia on Tarkir? How the addition of that particular feature of the character was done in a hidden, back-handed way? That was likely a test of the waters by WOTC to evaluate the response.

Financially, WOTC/Hasbro must be seeing a net positive from the things they are doing. That's the main feedback mechanism a corporation looks at. It's not easy to evaluate the financial contribution of any specific factor without detailed test, but when overall income continues to grow, a corporation will keep doing whatever it is doing.

In Alesia's case, the character was made trans via a story on WOTC website. And because it didn't hurt the bottom line, WOTC kept the "inclusion" and "representation" ball rolling.

The past decade or so of magic has been Magic's development team and marketing battling over who has control over the game. The first signs of rot showed up as early back as Scars block, when marketing told the team that they weren't allowed to just kill off planeswalkers whenever they wanted anymore. Things stayed pretty even for a while, but around khans stuff started to take a turn with marketing getting more and more control over the game and the people who actually cared about making the game good because of it. Fast forward to now and we have marketing completely at the reins. New planeswalkers are made not to be interesting characters, but because they'll appeal to a specific demographic. Storylines are written not out of passion, but because they're copying something popular or referencing something well known. Cards are blatantly overpowered every set since marketing knows that putting powerful cards in sets is a great way to force people to crack packs, and better yet, NEW cards since that way they can't just use a playset they already have. And worst of all, because certain cards are so damn pushed, bannings have become both infinitely more frequent and massively too slow, with bannings basically just becoming a combination of a tool they can use to force good decks to rotate out of standard early, since no one is cracking packs from the set that the problem card that's in that deck is from anymore and now they gotta get a new deck

That's what I don't get. It would have been so easy to apologize without actually changing anything. To say that they were sorry that they had misjudged what people would think of the product, but that it was still an experiment and they still wanted to see it through. To leave it open as to whether or not they'd do it again, but acknowledge that people were upset about it.

Commander/EDH is currently within WotC's grasp because they run Commander on MTGO and most people go by their interpretation of it as the default. Kind of like how Pauper bans cards just because those cards haven't been printed in MTGO as a common.

About 90% of the world population are NPC tier individuals, anon. Representation matters to such weak brains that have been infected with the thought virus of identity.
The thing is, media is now completely saturated by issues of representation or identity, which means the next generation will have grown thinking this shit is completely normal. Growing up in the 90s, of you were white, no one asked you what was you identity, and you weren't supposed to think for hours on end about your gender, ancestry, culture and so on (without ever accomplishing anything with it mind you).
My dad was a publicist. When I told him, as a kid, that I thought publicity didnt really work on me, he told me that that was a sort of badly kept secret that no one caught on : publicity doesnt work (or didnt work) on normally developed individuals. Only idiots buy a Chevy specifically because they saw the publicity for it more than the one for another car. But there are plenty of idiots out there, and they have money, so my dad had a job...
But nowadays I feel that with identity media have truly stumbled on the atom bomb of thought viruses.

The identity virus works quite well. Most people who fall for the identity virus are low self esteem types.
Look at grassroots identity movements before the big corporations caught on.
Stuff like punk, goth, metalhead, etc.

For most, its a literal cope, its a way to reject the things the people who pushed them down like and its an empowering thing for someone to find a way to deny mainstream pressure. Its not really anything, but it makes them feel empowered or clever for "beating" the standards they saw as oppressing them

So corporations have managed to insert themselves and their products into that process. They attach themselves to these subcultures and pander to them while spitting whatever platitudes they feel each subculture favors.
In time however, these corporations then tend to trend towards homogenization. They cant make quarterly gains by pandering to their core fanbase forever, so they expand and adapt the messaging. They adapt and see what "counter-culture" trends are popular and move to embrace those, and then everything becomes the counter culture, which makes it not counter to anything, but they keep claiming it is.

At this point we are in a situation where they have armies of these identity focused retards that are stuck in a perpetual state of arrested development because some brats bullied them in middle school and everything they do and everything they identify with is based around carefully crafted and carefully curated commercial products.

When you're weak/insecure you find comfort in being part of an organism that's bigger than you, that's where identity politics come in, giving people the safe space they need to validate their existences. These people don't find their validation inside of them via enlightenment and self-improvement, they find it on the outside via branding themselves with an identity brand, and all the brands they use have one thing in common, they're all in the victim/oppressed macrocategory.

They don't understand the basic concept of the struggle for settling for the next best thing after the unreachable eden, they think they can create some kind of equality utopia, ironically a place where individuality doesn't exist because it's systematically crushed.

They were spouting shit and I corrected them about it. It wasnt even that big a deal, it was that Japan thing a few years ago where Trump and Abe were feeding koi fish and the associated press edited the video to make it look like Trump just dumped all the fish food into the pond to be rude, when Abe actually did it first and Trump followed his lead.

My coworker is a socialist/commie, not too sure what kind of extremism he alligns with, and he buys funkopops and thinks superhero movies are the be-all end-all of filmmaking.
He supports affirmative action and all that crap. It's honestly pretty cringy and it's very hard for me not to engage in conversation and challenge his absurd claims. I did it a couple of times but it was too painful (like when he was openly rejecting the fact that burger economy was doing good before covid) and I've made a conscious effort to avoid it unless I've drunk a little bit because it's too excruciating without alcohol's support.

Are you opposed to CAPITAL-ism (ie: laws which encourage and enable widespread usury, fractional reserve banking, protections for speculators, etc)?
Or are you opposed to "capitalism" (ie: market activities and a conception of private property; which is conflated with capital/finance based activities)?

The core difference between communism and and right wing populism (sometimes socialism), is the concept of private property/ownership.
However you define property (buying the land, working the land or living on the land, etc), if you support the idea of private property (and by extention, ownership of the fruits of your labor), youre not a communist.
At it's most extreme, the private property advocate says even taxation is theft, at its most moderate/national focused level, the private property advocate is okay with some forms of social benefits and entitlements.

I personally believe that capital gains activities, corporate investment laws, fractional reserve banking (and usury based on using other's savings) is evil and should be heavily regulated and taxed.
These are the things most populists tend to take ubrage with. Limited liability protections for corporate heads, reserve banking guarantees by the govt in case of losses, low regulations and low taxes on capital gains, etc are all things I dont consider to be market activities; and in most cases, they're actually empowered and protected by existing federal laws, helping to make them far less risky and far more lucrative for the people that engage in them.

So unless you strictly oppose private property rights for the average person on informed principle, youre probably not a commie. Youre probably someone who could learn more about the ways in which western nations have created laws and protections for the absolute worst kinds of thievery and manipulation of otherwise (mostly) well and good intentioned market activities, like trading for goods, labor, etc.
