Season Length Does Not Affect Promo Pack Quantities

 

In some regions, Ikoria season begins a week early (Japan, China, and others) while other regions launch Ikoria season in mid-May. However, Promo Pack quantiles remain as they were in all regions.

And remember that, throughout the season, WPN members may use Promo Packs as a sales incentive, and as a reward for remote any remote events you may run.

 

Use Wizards Eventlink* to Help Organize Remote Events

 

First, you can use the template found hereto create a Discord server with a single click. Discord is a great way to create a hub for your Magic community, organize remote events and more. Get a walkthrough of how to use it here.

Second, we've taken our new event management tool, Wizards Eventlink*, into alpha testing ahead of schedule, in order to meet the need for remote Magic events. Eventlink is meant for in-store play, but its features can help facilitate events via webcam or Magic Arena. Read the walkthrough here before you get started.
