[[58194,users]] check this out. Lots of ppl would love something...anything to give casuals something relaxing.

I totally understand the want for a more casual format. I think a decent temporary solution would be to get a group together and direct challenge each other. You can set game stipulations and go from there. It would basically be how things work in a local game store!

Perhaps a way to friend people in the game, who we had fun playing against, might make that a more realistic option. Right now it's very hard to friend people because they decided to hide player's secret numbers, even here on the forum. While I have your attention, maybe an Off Topic section of the forums would be nice too.

There is a pinned post in General where people have posted their in-game names, so you can add them. If you haven't already I encourage you to make a post there+add some of the people here.

We don't have plans to create any additional boards, including Off Topic. This forum is for MTGA only. Sorry about that!

have you guys ever considered doing some Vintage availability, or something like that for Arena?. I know there was kind of an event like that some time ago. but if you could introduce some vintage play for older sets, it would be incredible!
also, if I may ask. How often are there community interactions, like pro-active and maybe even negative feedback, back and forward of a matter?

thanks

I think adding in older cards would be a lot of fun, but it takes a lot of time to put new cards in. Going back that far is going to take a long time (if we did that).

I talk with players on quite a few platforms and am constantly reading/listening to/passing on feedback. Players are always welcome to ask me questions directly or tag me on something they'd like to talk about. No guarantees I can or will talk about whatever that is, but I'll at least see it! :slight_smile:

@vulcanlogician:

I can understand why they don't create an off topic board. That'd be more trouble than it's worth-- for users and for WotC.
One thing we might try is creating a thread just for people to post their account usernames with the intention to play casual games. I know there is already a pinned thread for general matchmaking... a thread where we can post stuff like, "Hey, I am looking to play off-meta stuff, etc." But I've gotten mixed results from it. I specifically said I prefer brews in my post and that netdecks were cool but no top-tier nonsense. But people who friended me seem to be split into 2 categories. People who bring stuff like Temur Rec to duel me with, and people with starter decks.
So maybe we could create a new thread just for casual/off meta seekers, and then ask if it can be pinned. Now, we already have the one pinned thread devoted to direct challenge connections, so, unless the new thread gains traction, the administrators might feel like it's redundant. Therefore we should agree in significant numbers in this thread to create such a thread first, and then agree to all post in it. Just an idea, anyway.

Feel free to post again in the "find friends" pinned post and specify that you'd like the play more casual games!
