      My understanding is that Wizards is mostly pretty good. Its their corpo overlords at Hasbro to watch for

        Let me tell you as an employee at a studio where the parent company is widely viewed as shitty: it doesn’t matter. The rot starts at the head, and even good managers can get shitty. My workplace unionized and got recognition, and our overwhelmingly liked manager then went and violated status quo.

        Did Hasbro or WotC send the Pinkertons after that guy who got a pre release card? It doesn’t matter, because a corporation that owns the IP still sent the Pinkertons after a random customer.

        WotC is a division of Hasbro now & if you use MtG as a reference you can see the plan seems to be to drain the swamp. I think in their shareholders meetings they want MtG to double its earning in 4 years… So I’d imagine they’re looking for angles on D&D & BG may be the flagship for this.

        Was it WotC or Hasbro that sent Pinkerton’s to someone’s house to steal their Magic cards because a retailer accidentally sold them cards from the new set a couple days too early?
