Any idea where the alleged source of the data came from? Thanks ahead.


paulx441

They made it up bro. Must be new to Twitter


DM_me_cool_artworks

Source: dude trust me


alfchaval

Well, this is a subreddit about rumors xD


DM_me_cool_artworks

That's fair. But some things feel more legitimate than others and a healthy dose of skepticism is warranted. But for this specifically we should be seeing some hard data eventually, right? In a report for investors or something.

“Before the world finds out tomorrow”? This is dumb


Moress

While I'd love to see WotC eat a heaping pile of shit on this product, I doubt this is true.


Doombringer1331

So they roughly made $2.3 million from the product


Daniel_TK_Young

If this data is legit, they did way more than 2.3 million worth of damage to their PR.


releasethedogs

That’s gross profit, **NOT** net profit.


Doombringer1331

Correct. I do not know how much they put into producing it.


spaceyjdjames

Not a ton considering they didn't need to design, develop, test, or commission art


Soven_Strix

Don't forget the cost of their obliterated reputation and tanking Hasbro market capitalization and the effect it has on every other product they want to cram down Timmy's throat. Considering that, and if these numbers are true, it was a catastrophic loss.


spaceyjdjames

The real magic was the customers we lost along the way!


Bosk12

Selling 15% of your stock that is marked up 975% is not a catastrophic loss.


KingLeil

You’re right; it’s the goodwill damage to your balance sheet and your stock double downgrade that’s the real kick to the dick. BoFA buttfucked them.


AvalancheMaster

Commission – no, but they probably did have to pay royalties, since magic contracts in those early days worked differently.


trsblur

Sure, but it seemed like the advertising budget was greatly increased for this flop...


lam3001

gross revenue, not profit :-)


releasethedogs

Sure. :)


Dingus10000

Oh no, only $2.05 million in net profit. WOTC owned and destroyed.


Impossible-Help-5129

I believe you mean revenue.


Copernicus1981

It does not include the sales data for Asia. And I'm going to question anything I see with 14 and 88 in it for the next few months.


lam3001

please explain the 14 and 88 - apparently I am oblivious


irishrelief

It's some allusion to Nazi shit. 88 being representative for HH, heil Hitler. I forget exactly what the 14 is for. But you see 1488 commonly with neo Nazi supporters.


thegoodgero

The 14 comes from the 14 Words, which are two white nationalist slogans popularized by David Eden Lane. "We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children", and the less common follow-up "Because the beauty of the White Aryan woman must not perish from the Earth".


Tumbleweed01

Some dumb Neo-nazi stuff. 88 is “Heil Hitler”, 14 is something I can’t remember.


r_jagabum

Yeah was about to say that for Singapore, it was 800 on sale and 9 were sold, and data was clear as day on Shopee, so it was wierd that this didn't include it.


Copernicus1981

Asia using round numbers as their allotment also counters this rumor.


ohmusama

That is about as clear an indication as can be that this is trolling.


Aspel

I don't know why the next few months, but I won't deny that instantly made me give pause.


Jacksonnever

idk anything about making products or logistics or whatever, but 14,188 seems like an extremely odd figure to have as your maximum possible number of sales.


JonDuke19

I 100% know this is false. You guys a gullible.


Ainiv

I have my doubts but this looks better than what I expected.


TheRecovery

If it’s not mtglion, I’m not buy in’ I need a more trusted source


TheSoundOfKek

I don't believe the "attempted sales" portion, since I know *many* individuals who wanted to test the site/waiting portion to see if it'd crash/die like past events. But if this data is true, they made a cool few million on it, and have a bunch of promotional boxes to sell at Magicfests/give to people. This is probably a win in their book.


lillobby6

Eh I don’t know if it can be considered a win considering this was a least a contributing factor the the BofA downgrade on Hasbro’s stock.

MTGO Salseo Creadores de salsa y humor. Proyecto de E-sport. Might want to check your sources before posting bud.


alfchaval

I have been following that account for years, you have only read the profile, you might want to not assume things before commenting. What must be questioned here is not that twitter account, but the original source, from which they have taken the screenshot.

This looks real to me.


BraveStrawberry4668

It's a canary trap. I think Wizard's put it out, knowing Rudy would carry it, which he did, in an attempt to discredit him.


sirbruce

> before the world finds out tomorrow It's tomorrow; where is this supposed corroboration?
