The Finisher

In a story that is in the running for the most 2019 story of 2019, Bernie Sanders is now Twitch verified. Now, tomorrow night is when we’ll feel the Bern on stage, but tonight the junior senator from Vermont is free to try out the new WoW patch with his main, pwn noobs on Fortnite, or even try to his Diamond on his Arena account before the end of the season. But he certainly won’t be the last bonafide celebrity to get on board with live streaming. So tell me: what other big names would you like to see try out Twitch streaming and get their game on?

The Finisher

8 years ago this week, Jace the Mind Sculptor and Stoneforge Mystic were banned from the Standard format. Times sure have changed since then, with Stoneforge being bandied about for Modern unbanning every few months and JTMS these days merely being better than most. So in a few years when we look back at the bans that make her dance, what kinds of memories will you have?

The Electronic Entertainment Expo, commonly referred to as E3, is the premier trade event for the video game industry and is occurring this week in LA. Among those in attendance were the platonic ideal of wholesomeness Keanu Reeves announcing a brand new Cyberpunk game, Jon Bernthal brought his adorable pupper, and the whole world fell in love with Ghostwire Tokyo game designer and world’s most adorable human Ikumi Nakamura. So with Magic moving ever closer to the esports side, what announcement are you holding out hope for at E3 2019?

Yu-Gi-Oh! Adds Definition of, and Penalty for, Card Sharks:

https://twitter.com/MaxPlaysMTG/status/1136000969966116870?s=19

 

The Finisher

Our trading card game cousins-once-removed, Yu-Gi-Oh, recently added a rules update that codifies what a “rules shark” is and that attempting to “shark the rules” is punishable under Unsporting Behavior. Quote: “Official Policy documents may not serve as a resource for persons to attempt to take advantage of one another through rule sharking, or otherwise attempting to influence the decisions of judges or tournament officials. Rule sharking is defined as using rules and policy in an attempt to gain an advantage instead of to ensure fair and consistent gameplay.” This is on the heels of their recent other rules update hygiene policy was put in place. This is, of course, amazing work from the Rules Committee for Yu-Gi-Oh, and it got me thinking: what rules updates are you hoping for in the future?
