Look, it's no secret that Magic Online has had its share of problems. In fact, it's had way more of them than most.
But that's all supposed to change. Wizards has been hard at work with a new client that should not only solve some of the major technical issues like crashing tournaments, but also make the game easier to access and a more enjoyable experience overall.
Well, maybe not.
Magic Online went into "wide beta" again this week with the new client. What that means is that the old client was temporarily disabled and everyone was forced to use the new one. The idea is that Wizards can get feedback from this process and find any of the few flaws left in the system and have them fixed by July, the date they want to officially launch it.
Turns out they have their work cut out for them.
Look, I'm not here to pile on about the issues Magic Online faces. Rather, I want to direct you to this post by Brian Kibler, where I think he does a very good (and fair) job of addressing those issues and what Wizards needs to do to fix them.
Let's hope someone's listening.
