I really appreciate the extensive and fast answer.
Maybe some other players or council members can share their opinion here, too.


I can understand some of the points you specified above, especially the face-to-face talk with the initiators of this campaign and maybe some other council members like Maqi (Mannheim) or Dr. Opossum (Berlin) if they attend to the tournament in Halle, too.

I will look forward on the result of the discussion.

At least at the moment I can see that maybe some changes are coming in the future.
3  MagicPlayer Highlander / General Discussion / A new wave of criticism! Will it change something? on: 23-09-2019, 11:22:42 AM
Around 6 month ago I decided to temporary quit the format until changes in the structure (BANs & UNBANs, council, transparency, ...) will be made.
Today by coincidence I received a link to a massive thread with criticism on the council.
Because the thread was deleted in the facebook group as far as I heard, I won't post the link here or will post my further opinion on the different points of critic now.

Just to remember, here some of my posts with criticism on the format structure (mostly banlist related) for those who are interested in my point of view in the past:

Critic on the handling with banlist changes
Suggestions for changes on banlist votes


Another problem I want to point out again is, since my Facebook BAN I saw it's hard to follow whats happening in the format/community, because kinda no one use the forum or discord nowadays for whatever reasons.
In my opinion an independent platform which don't require a log in is necessary to read and follow up whats happening in the community (tournament results/reports, decklists, discussions, announcements, ...).

I will look forward on how this thread of criticism will change the structure of the format, maybe it's worth to start playing and participate in the community again if changes will be made.

Some reserved list cards are going for absurd prices.

Allow x amount of recognizable proxies (color prints) in HL decks. This would attract new players to try the format, and maybe even encourages current/old players to become more active as they can play more decks.

Proxies at tournaments are no long-term solution to make the format more attractive for new players in my eyes. The "absurd" prices of some reserved list cards, is just one of a few reasons why more and more players are not attracted to highlander anymore (exception Berlin).
A bigger reason for me is the current highlander meta. It is just too similar with competitive Commander (Combo and/or Blue-Based Decks), players are of course more attracted to an official than a self-made format which is kinda the same.
If I would be a Control- or Combo-Player I would ask myself "Why should I play MP.org Highlander? When Commander has the bigger community".

In my opinion to attract new players to the format, the meta needs to be redefined to have something unique and special again.
As example there is no singleton format I know at the moment where aggressive decks have a shot (exception RDW in our format).

For me highlander was the most fun back in the days when decks like 'Naya Zoo', '5c Aggro', '4c Goodstuff', 'Bant Midrange', and so on where Top-Tier ... because these decks where mostly built for interaction and not a straight "unfair" gameplan.
We had some of those "unfair" deckstrategies back then too like 'Oath' and 'Stax' but they weren't as dominant as the oppressive decks these days.

We will see where the council will lead the format in the future by their bans and unbans.

Laughed pretty good at some BAN/UNBAN reasonings, thanks for sharing.
Looking forward for the next Banlist changes Cheesy

At the moment there are not enough interested players to start. I will post updates here if this will change in the future.

I don't think that any admin is up this late ^^
10  MagicPlayer Highlander / Off-Topic / Re: Account Deletion on: 15-08-2018, 12:17:46 AM
Why you wanna delete your forum account? ... and why the fuck is it necessary to confirm your deletion from an admin xD "that doesn't make sense!"
11  MagicPlayer Highlander / Off-Topic / Re: Account Deletion on: 15-08-2018, 12:10:58 AM
Getting banned is normaly not the same as a deletion ...
... but good luck to get banned or deleted whatever you want and whyever you want Smiley

Very nice report. Are decklists of the Top8 available?

I posted my first idea of a new Online Highlander Tournament format like a month ago and this thread now is to ask you guys if enough players are interested in this to pursue this idea.

Some of this stuff is already known from the Online Highlander League:

- Monthly tournament free to join, post your deck code to join.
- The tournament is intended for 8 players single KO-System, Best of Three.
- Games will be played on Cockatrice (Server: Rooster Ranges)
- Rounds end every week Sunday 11 pm (players can arrange their match from Monday 6 pm - Sunday 11 pm).
- I would suggest to arrange your matches via PM or Discord.
- Players who don't show up to their match, receive a loss and can't join the next monthly tournament.
- Winner posts a short report of the match.

If you have questions or ideas feel free to post or contact me via PM or discord.

Looks like I am alone with my opinion but ...
I am/was fine with 50-55mins at every tournament I attended, never came to a timeout and had to play extra turns. In my opinion some players just have a terrible time management or extending their turns for an "advantage", because of this reasons 'Senseis Devining Top' is BANNED.
