Daybreak Games has released their weekly Magic Online update guide.
More Action Taken Against Win-Traders
The Daybreak Games team has taken an additional step in an attempt to combat win-traders in smaller Magic Online leagues. Starting today, the one-time purchasable Account Upgrade Kit, that used to give 100 play points for $4.99, will now only give 60 play points. This reduction in play points should remove the incentive to create a new account, use the upgrade kit, and queue into another account to give a win, due to the minimization of profit that process yields.
Notably, this change shouldn’t impact existing players, as they most likely already purchased the Account Upgrade Kit. The Daybreak Games team will continue to monitor the leagues for win-trading and will provide feedback on their social channels.
