Http://www.twitch.tv/magic will have US Nationals on stream.
It looks like this will be the only source of Nationals streaming, as Wizards has an exclusive agreement with Twitch. Hearing that other Nationals organizers are being told they can not stream the event on their own.
I get it, they want to show how their viewership goes up and if they fracture the audience among several streams...
Can’t live stream; will be able to record and repost afterwards.
Why not just stream on a different platform?
Cause they don't want them to stream magic on any platform other than twitch. You know, the one they are exclusive to.
When do they start?
Saturday and Sunday 930 am
nope it is not on
what day and time?(ET)
is it all just draft today?
No, 3 rounds of draft, 4 rounds of standard. Top 8 is standard
how many rounds into the draft are we? i missed the beginning.
Always happy to see some modern action.
SCG primarily plays Modern, I love it. Solid streams every weekend for the upcoming weeks.
Good luck to all the Richmond locals!
Serum visions getting replaced by search and opt? Interesting take for a full control list
Didn't even realize this was going on in charlotte this weekend. Looks like I'm gonna be partaking in some drafts
Congrats to my co-worker Paul bringing home the win in Modern!
Super nice dude! He was just at my workplace the other day helping me teach kids how to play.
Such strange timing to have a Nationals tournament right after a World Championship.
Looking forward to watching.
I wish they had nationals in multiple locations. The World Cup was great in that they actually held events in Western Canada. It's far too expensive to fly to the east coast for nationals. I hope they alternate to the west next year, but I wouldn't be surprised if they end up being held in the east every year.
Did SCG post their bingo cards anywhere? I want to revel in the silliness.
If you're at the Charlotte Open and going for a Classic, go to Hazelnuts Creperie for the breakfast of champions tomorrow morning.
I'll be at nationals if anybody has questions.
What's the airborne velocity of an unladen swallow?
Is it an african swallow or a european swallow?
Well I don’t know that
Its your birthday. Someone gives you a calfskin wallet. How do you react?
Are you testing if I'm a replicant or a lesbian, Mr. Deckard?
I accept happily? Lol
Is your day going well?
Day has been fantastic.
How are you?
Good, thanks. On my way to nationals right now.
Hot dog. I'm currently in my hotel room with my teammates.
Do I pick up Josh Gordon from the waivers and stash or let him chill?
you can go home, i don't have any questions
Where there any Pro Points available at Nationals?
I didn't think there were (only for the World Magic cup), but some article some where said there was.
thks for any info
Top 4 only
what were they? And were they the same for all countries?
I'm not sure.
1st and 2nd received three, 3rd and 4th received one. This is the standard award for all Nationals.
I saw that a U/G merfolk deck made it on steam at the SCG event. Did anyone catch a timestamp so I can watch it on Twitch's replay?
Break down on the meta
Wait, didn't they just have World Championships? I thought the path was Regionals (RIP), Nationals, then Worlds?
The world championship is unrelated to this event entirely. This event is the qualifier for the world magic cup, which is a team event with 3 people representing each country as opposed to worlds which is 24 people(chosen through a variety of factors such as being a pro points leader, winning a pro tour, and others) competing on an individual basis independent of nationality.
OH! Yeah, thanks, I forgot about the WMCs...
All I'm seeing on the stream is Extra life donation thing. Is it not being streamed?
Coverage starts on Saturday
What's the difference between SCG open and classic?
The Open is the main event for the weekend. They host smaller side tournaments alongside the Open which covers the other two formats that the Open is not (so this weekend Standard and Legacy).
Best of luck to Nationals players! I'd be there eliminating you all if it weren't for this blasted "job" thing they keep hounding me about.
Watching the Wizards stream it looks like they are keeping up their quality production and lighting from the worlds.
Since day one for nationals is only 7 rounds, I’m down to jam other formats at the end of the day, if anyone wants! Post here (:
TIL: I suck at draft
welcome my friend, welcome.
