Die Aufteilung der Welt zwischen Japan und USA


Zunächst erst mal eine Entschuldigung meinerseits: Auf Grund eines technischen Problems konnte der folgende Newseintrag leider nicht wie geplant gestern, sondern erst einen Tag später online gehen. Daher möchte ich mich für die falschen Zeitbezüge (z.B. "gestern" oder "heute morgen") entschuldigen. Viel Spass beim Lesen!

Die World Championships 2011 sind gestern zu Ende gegangen und damit auch die Magic-Welt, wie wir sie kennen. Herr Pischner brachte es heute morgen in seinem Blog auf den Punkt:
This is it, the death of Magic, the mental sport. [...] You are no longer a student of Magic strategy on your road to Worlds.

You are a planeswalker.
Dem ist nichts mehr hinzuzufügen. Aber bis wir tatsächlich sehen, wie die Schöne Neue Welt von Magic aussehen wird, sollten zunächst erst mal die Erfolge der gerade vergangenen Worlds 2011 gewürdigt werden. Kommen wir also zur Parade der Gewinner:



Unser neuer Weltmeister heißt Jun'ya Iyanaga aus Japan:


Er ist sicherlich ein guter Spieler, aber auch ein wahrer Meister des Kartenmischens. Twitter-User Guilherme brachte es gestern ganz gut auf den Punkt:

Highlight in diesem Zusammenhang ist das Zusammenspiel zwischen Jun'ya Iyanagas Mischtechnik und Conley Woods Gesichtsmimik, wie es im Video vom Halbfinale (ca. ab 48:07) festgehalten worden ist [und BDMs Kommentar dazu ist das Sahnehäubchen!]. Das Drehbuch dazu könnte von Jim Jarmusch stammen.



Die letzten Team-Weltmeister kommen ebenfalls aus Japan: Makihito Mihara, Ryuichiro Ishida und Tomoya Fujimoto




Der Sieger der Magic Online Championships (MOCS) 2011 ist Reid Duke aus den USA:


Dieser konnte sich nach einem Punkte-Gleichstand mit Florian Pils im Finale durchsetzten.



Dank des Team-Siegs der Japaner ging der Titel Rookie of the Year 2011 an Matthias Hunt aus den USA:




Ähnlich gingen die Worlds auch für Owen Turtenwald zu ende. Denn nachdem sich vier seiner Channel-Fireball-Team-Kollegen in die Top 8 spielen konnten, während er selber (nur!) Platz 33 erreichte, konnte er den Titel Player of the Year 2011 nur noch durch das Scheitern von Luis Scott Vargas, Paulo Vitor Damo da Rosa und Josh Utter-Leyton ergattern. Sicherlich eine nervenaufreibende Ausgangssituation, doch der Gott der Spieler war ihm gewogen:




Ganz ehrlich: nach er Betrachtung dieser Serie an Siegerfotos und deren Komposition stelle ich mir ernsthaft die Frage, was WotC wichtiger ist: Die Trophäe und für was sie steht oder der Sieger und was er erreicht hat. - Auf der anderen Seite ist das wieder die Frage danach, was zu erst da war: Huhn oder Ei.

Dack Fayden explores Innistrad


Am 21. November 2011, also morgen, erscheint die zweite Ausgabe der neuen Comic-Serie Magic: the Gathering um den Planeswalker Dack Fayden:

On the trail of the person who destroyed his town, Dack Fayden must travel to Innistrad, a plane of savage monsters, strange transformations and sinister magic. Naturally, Dack immediately gets caught up in a vampire attack at a secluded inn.

Wie schon die erste Ausgabe erscheint auch diese mit einer exklusiven Promo-Karte:


Es scheint so, als wäre diese rote Version von Careful Study mit Flashback(!) ein Ausblick auf Dark Ascension.

Der Nebel lichtet sich... scheibchenweise!


Aufgrund der fehlenden Transparenz in der Informationspolitik von WotC kam es u.a. zu Verwirrung darüber, wie das Einladungsverfahren zur ersten Pro Tour in 2012 unter dem neuen Planeswalker Punkte-System aussehen wird.
Wohl auf Grund beharrlicher Nachfragen seitens der Turnier-Community hat WotC eine Klarstellung veröffentlicht:

There have been questions regarding the Pro Tour Dark Ascension Invitation Policy, and we want to make an important clarification. For Pro Tour Dark Ascension we will run two invitation lists based on Competitive Planeswalker Points totals: one with the Worlds 2011 results, and one without. Any player who appears on one or both of the lists will receive an invitation. If a player appears on both invitation lists, it will not cause a passdown of invitations.
Somit haben auch die Spieler, die nicht an den Wolds 2011 teilnehmen konnten/durften eine Chance an der nächsten Pro Tour teilzunehmen. Wie aber das genaue Verfahren und speziell der Verteilungs-Schlüssel zwischen den beiden Listen zur Verteilung der Pro Tour-Tickets aussieht, wurde natürlich nicht bekannt gegeben.
Da ist es doch sehr beruhigend, dass Greg Leeds eine Klärung aller Unklarheiten in Bezug auf die Änderungen der Turnier- und Event-Struktur auf der Pro Tour Dark Ascension versprochen hat, oder?

The Commander is leaving


Sheldon Menery, seines Zeichens Level 5-Judge (judging seit 1996) und geistiger Vater vom EDH-/Commander-Format, wird den Dienst als Magic-Judge quittieren. Somit werden die World Championships 2011, denen er als Head-Judge vorsteht, sein letztes Turnier sein.


Allerdings wird er der Magic-Turnierszene erhalten bleiben, denn ab 2012 wird er das Coverage-Team um Richard Hagon und Brian David-Marshall personell verstärken.
Wenn ihr mich fragt, dann ist das ein herber Verlust für die Judge-Community und gleichzeitig ein grandioser Gewinn für die zukünftigen WotC-Turnier-Coverages.

Trivial-News 5: Die Magie der Geografie


Mit 375 Magic-Spielern sind die World Championships 2011 sicherlich nicht das größte Turnier des Jahres. Aber mit drei verschiedenen Formaten, vier Tagen Dauer, 18 Runden (+4 Team-Runden) Swiss, Top 8 (und Team-Top 4) und Teilnehmern aus 59 verschiedenen Ländern ist das Turnier ganz sicher das Interessanteste!
Das weiß auch WotC und versucht den Dimensionen dieser Weltmeisterschaft mit einem Country Pie Rechnung zu tragen:



Fällt Dir was auf? Nein? - Dann wollen wir uns das Tortendiagramm mal genau(er) anschauen:
  • Das auffälligste ist sicherlich die Einteilung Europas in vier Regionen: Northern Europe (hell grün), Western Europe (dunkel rot), Central and Eastern Europe (dunkel grün) und Western Europe (dunkel lila). Wer auch immer die Einzelzahlen zusammengezählt hat, der Süden Europas wurde dabei wohl zugunsten eines zweiten Westens vernachlässigt.
  • Ob Mexiko zu Zentralamerika (hell lila) dazu gezählt wird oder nicht, darüber kann man sich streiten (Stichwort: Zentralamerikanische Konföderation).
  • Aber dass das Vereinigte Königreich Großbritannien und Nordirland (hell blau) zu Europa bzw. zur Europäischen Union gehört, darüber gibt es aus europäischer Sicht keinen Zweifel - aber ob das auch für die amerikanischen Sichtweise gilt, kann ich nicht beschwören...
  • Das Spannendste ist aber die Tatsache, dass sich bei dieser Darstellung die Teilnehmerzahl auf ganze 411 erhöht hat!
Aber hey, hier geht es um bunte Pappkarten und nicht um Erdkunde. In diesem Sinne wünsche ich ein schönes Wochenende!

Good fight, good night!

Schon lange finde ich es schade, dass du deinen Projekten goyf und Couchmagic so wenig Liebe angedeihen lässt. Der Schritt, den goyf nun ganz zu beenden, ist nachvollziehbar, aber auch aus meiner Sicht bedauerlich. Couchmagic wird vermutlich bald folgen...

17.10.2019 14:24 | Eddos*

Sehr schade, den Newsfeed habe ich bis vor 3 Tagen täglich genutzt. Vielleicht kannst du mir ein ähnliches Angebot nennen?
Vielen Dank für dass, was du insgesamt mit dem goyf geleistet hast.es war damals nach germagic (R.I.P.)
Meine wichtigste Anlaufstelle zu Beginn meiner Magic-Zeit.

Liebes "Top 25 Pro Rankings - 23/2015", heute wirst du ein Jahr alt, und du bist immer noch der jüngste Beitrag hier auf GOYF. Dazu die allerbesten Glückwünsche, von Geburtstagskind zu Geburtstagskind!

Sicher, aber dann wäre es keine neue Fähigkeit bzw. kein neues Keyword...

Hätte es dagegen spannend gefunden, wenn WotC eine Kreatur mit Megamorph zusätzlich auch mit Morph ausgestattet hätten, damit man eine situative Wahl treffen könnte. Ich hoffe, dass WotC auch auf diese Idee gekommen ist!

04.03.2015 11:27 | zwork

Hätte man Megamorph nicht als "whenever it's turned face up for it's Morph cost put a +1/+1 counter on it" lösen können?
Hätte weniger von Power Ranger-Feeling. Ich finds dämlich so wie es ist.

Danke für den Hinweis! Ich hatte mich zwar kurz gewundert, aber im Eifer die Nachricht fertig zu kriegen habe ich auch nicht weiter darüber nachgedacht...

26.02.2015 11:15 | Jek

Gerade mit dem Shop-Besitzer geschrieben:

26.03.15 - Sealed - Speyer

stimmt nicht (mehr).

Es soll der 29.03. werden (was auch von WotC bestätigt wurde) - was auch mehr Sinn macht, da am Wochenende.

Bitte ändern ;)
