it has been requested that we follow the winter war ruleset for the next mw weekend (4/3-5) here as a means of generating some more data. it is fine by me. anyone have issues with that or have another suggestion? I will post the winter war link below. only a few more weeks until the event. we have several who have committed. if you are interested, please get with me here or on discord to get more details.

it has been requested that promo cards be allowed. so all promo cards are allowed for any matches however all errata for those promo cards are in effect as well. for instance - no quick cast sandstorms or ballista in any book etc.

two weeks until mage wars weekend here in indy. assuming nothing changes related to the corona, this is still going to happen. super stoked about seeing folks. I will post here again if anything changes. but so far so good here.

You should cancel. Running a tournament in the middle of a pandemic is entirely irresponsible, considering how easily it spreads and it can be nearly invisible for 2 weeks. The COVID-19 pandemic will only get worse in April and May considering that most states aren't even putting the effort of stopping the spread of the disease, and the US federal government is all over the place with its response.

If you decide to hold the tournament and people get sick, then the fault will be 100% on you. If some of these people die, then it'll be all for some lousy tournament prize- it's simply not worth it.

we are not holding a formal tournament this time unless people want to do that. note this is still 2 more weeks away. and we would know given the self quarantines that have been in place for over a week already that anyone attending would know if they have any symptoms and stay home.  I do agree it is not worth the risk, but I do also believe by 4/3 we will likely be in decent shape to start coming out of our cocoons.

What happens if a participant is unknowingly infected while driving to the event, or a few days before the event and isn't showing symptoms? If your state governor prohibits the gathering of more than 5 people, will you just do the tournament? Perhaps online on OCTGN might be best...

LMAO dream on.... Your entire country is ill-prepared and the virus has only started to spread. An optimistic view of the future would be the "cooldown" of the virus starting late May/ Early June.

ThisIsDeutch is right. Early predications show the top of the bell curve starting in late April early May. If people are out of their cocoons before then, Trump has selected the economy over his Citizens well being.

You know... with the governor's shelter in-place order that became effective last night, you might want to reconsider the offering. It was set to last until 4/7 at least.

I am planning on waiting until next Wednesday to see how things are going. there is a chance the order can be revoked early. not a big chance, but still possible.

Things are going badly. I'm blown away that you think there is any chance of having any sort of event before May at the earliest and that's even pushing.

yes we play mw here in indy. in fact pending pandemic issues, i may be hosting a mw weekend here the weekend that would have been gencon. folks come over from fri-sun and play mw all weekend long. people come from out of state and biblo from denmark has even made such a trip.

this can serve as notice to folks that the next mw weekend will be here in indy 8/7-9 (perhaps the weekend before) depending on how may feel they are ok with coming.  the gathering will be small and i do not want people who have not been practicing proper practices such as isolating etc. to visit but i feel it should be relatively safe. i have had some already contacting me hoping for another event and with gencon being cancelled this may be at least some consolation. please contact me here or on discord and i can provide more details.
