This sounds very cool! Thanks for taking the time to post here.

I'm sure you'll get a lot of great questions and I don't want to ask one that's been asked before, but: could you ask him how he feels about the current state of the beta? As in, the number of players that are playing the game consistently, as opposed to dropping the game after a couple of days.

Ill make sure to bring that topic up!

And I do think he might be used to having to answer repeated questions as not everyone might have read, listened to or heard him answer them previously.

 

So any common, or uncommon, questions are welcome! Heck even funny ones! :D Maybe also ones about his pro-career in Magic: The Gathering ;)

Heya, 

 

one thing you could ask, about tournaments.. 

Is a deck chosen at start of tournament and then it can not be changed for the duration? hence that deck gets locked in?

New iPhones & iOS7 – is SolForge ready to take advantage of this extra power and tech?

 

I too would be interested on things like player retention and average gold spend, but I'm guessing trade secrets are best kept hidden.

 

Ask if they have any plans for a regular update series for the front page of the WebSite! (even just a weekly – stream later/stream highlights available)

I'd love to know what ideas they're throwing around for crafting, really hoping we can upgrade card rarity, would be incredibly disappointed if it was rerolling cards into the same rarity or just selling cards for silver.

Also some card balance questions would be interesting, we know they're looking at nerfing savants, but why were they buffed in the first place? I would also be really interested in his thoughts on sonic pulse vs epidemic, having a card of the same rarity being less than half the effect of a similar card just feels wrong.

Hmm, just thought of a question, and one that's long enough to be hard to ask in the weekly community streams.

So, we're told from streams that cards from packs purchased with gold (which has its origins in real money) will be tradable, while cards from packs purchased with silver, or earned from daily rewards will not be tradable.

It would make sense that kickstarter reward cards (from the 20 booster packs) are tradable, since those had their origin in real money as well. Is this correct?

Presumably, cards picked during drafts will follow the same pattern. If you got the ticket to play through a daily (or weekly?) reward, your cards will not be tradable. If you purchase entry with gold, your cards will be tradable.

Say you do well in a draft, and earn entry to another draft. Will that entry earn you tradable cards? Does it depend whether you entered the first draft with free tickets or paid tickets?

If you require multiple tickets to enter a draft, what happens if you have some paid tickets and some free tickets?

Adding on to the pack question, Are the single faction starters considered free or paid? I think it's more likely that the 1 of each starter we got would be considered free than the packs.

I look forward to this interview!

I'd like to know if they will be using a bracket system for tournaments and ranked play or if they will just use rating numbers.

I'd also like to know if the crafting/trade-in system will allow us to increase card rarity (and any details about it, really).

Thanks!

Any ETA on the "mini" patch?  Any more details on what will be included in the patch?

Any thoughts on the decklists/results on the 256 person /r/Solforge tournament?

(1) Yes, we are ecstatic!,   (2) We are doing fine!

There, answered it for you. Diplomatically/politically, you'll never get any other answer no matter how well or poorly a company is doing.

If you want to skip the discussion about Kibler's Magic the Gathering experience and other background stuff and go straight to the Solforge conversation, start at 35 minutes in.
