Q: Is there a way to access the worms across the dig site on Ginger Island?

MeiaEver since I've had access to Ginger Island, there are these worms in the ground I've been wanting to dig up but I have not figured out how to get across. Is there a path to get to this part of the map or is this likely a bug? (See the worms at the very bottom left under the palm tree)

Q: Magic wand time - what does your community need? (More questions from the Community VP)

PhilippeContinuing in my series of questions to you: Last week, I heard some great origin stories. This week, I’d like to refocus a bit on what could be better (in your view). I’m very curious about whether we’ll find near universal agreement or if we’ll discover that different communities have very di...

Thoughts on this?

@Elise So I looked into this even more. The Airport Time Capsule router we have is specced as an AC1300 router, meaning that the 2.4 Ghz and the 5 Ghz bands combine up to a speed of 1300 Mbps, which is divided roughly 400-867 in this case. Then that's half-duplexed

@Elise lol

@Wrigglenite I'd honestly say that for Arqade, something that would help is allowing us more flexibility on what sort of questions are allowed. There are certain questions like recommendation requests, list requests and other topics that were banned back when it was just SO and SU and such questions were problematic because there was a lot of tribalism in those days on what libraries should be used, and I feel like on Arqade such tribalism is somewhat less

@Unionhawk I'm so excited
Heard about this earlier.
I've been wanting more content for outer wilds, but I wasn't sure how they'd be able to do that. So I'm super curious.

Does anyone have any thoughts on Magic introducing digital exclusive cards, kinda like Hearthstone does?
Hearthstone doesn't have a physical version, does it?
Right, was more talking about how Hearthstone can play in the digital-only design space since it's a digital-only game, and now Magic is trying to get in on it
10:03 PM
I think it's mostly fine. "Perpetual" is only problematic because of the constraints of paper and hidden information. "Seek" is essentially what "reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a card with whatever characteristics" would have been if not for paper constraints. "Conjure" is essentially just an extension of creating tokens. And randomness in general isn't exactly new to Magic.
10:13 PM
@murgatroid99 Agreed. Is weird to think they'll be digital only cards though. I do wonder if this is Wizards testing the waters to shift away from physical and more into digital.
Which would be a fairly drastic move, but a digital only card game would certainly be cheaper.
Magic has had multiple formats forever. There's no real reason they wouldn't be able to do paper and digital in parallel
@murgatroid99 ah good point
I never thoguht about it from that POV
I also haven't played magic since high school, which was before Commander was an officially supported format.
It's basically like looking at the existence of Modern Horizons and saying "Maybe this means they're going to get rid of Standard sets"
and official commander does have commander only cards (I think, again, haven't played)
Magic Online is still a thing too, right?
And Magic Online has had digital-only stuff for years
10:16 PM
I also didn't know that.
I barely touched magic online, since I had plenty of folks to play with locally.
At my high school a bunch of magic players just commandeered a spare room into a Magic den.
That's a card that goes in the command zone in a variant called Vanguard. There's a MTGO format called Momir Basic where you play that card and a deck of 60 basic lands.
"Is Momir Basic the death of paper Magic?"
Wizards already killed Magic when they printed Chronicles in 1995
That's a deep cut
@toroid A deep paper cut.
