I see your point.

I think perhaps it might be best if WotC just makes the cards and runs the DCI and the Hall of Fame.

They can still work with store for FNM, Pre-Releases, Game Days, etc. but anything above that level is handled by SCG/CFB or otherwise outsourced, and that should probably include Magic Online

They're playing a documentary they commissioned on how great and valuable the pro magic community is on their twitch channel right now

Twitch.tv/magic

Too damn good! Wotc with their classic clutch timing

Advertisement is a huge cost for WotC. If they can get other people to do it, they'll cut operating cost by 30%-40% or more(no idea, but probably roughly that number). That translates into a ton of profit. Ideally SCG or CFB takes over the tournament side. I think we're within 5-10 years where it's profitable enough for them to do so. Going global is the biggest speed bump at the moment. You can't advertise in the US alone. I'm not sure how it'll transition.

And they're looping it for 24 hours

Next rotation starts in 9 minutes

Way way too good on the timing

Giant middle finger and the shocker- an mtg documentary

It's pretty bad lol

Half of it is some sort of weird appeal to get Chris pikula into the HoF and talks about his kids and shit

Glad I just skimmed it

I was playing league with up. About the same as skimming. Turtenwald made the pro life look like dog shit. I'd rather be a burger flipper than Turtenwald.
