  3. Wow, that's crazy. Brazil obviously has a huge mtg playerbase, Why isn't WotC mining that market?

  4. Wait what? Returning? You were here and I missed that?! 🙁

  5. I hope Wizards sees this. They really need to step up their game. Great vid prof! Never stop making content.

  6. South America just doesn't get product in time. Here in argentina store owners have to go personally to USA or other countrys that have better more fluid customs and buy product there so they can travel back and have an event the date it is supposed to. And for supplementary product like unstable, master sets or battlebond the product just gets here one or two moths laters no exceptions. And about pricing, particularly here in Argentina, we have only one distributer for the hole country and the stores buy at msrp from it, so we get an overinflated price tag, and here we have no target or wallmart to go get them somewhere else. The playerbase just likes the game so much that they don't stop playng it, but it is almost 100% people with jobs because teens simply cannot afford to play, even fnms (when they occur).

  11. This video was awesome, keep up the excellent job.

  12. Hey Professor! Thanks for the attention with the Brazillian community! And one tip, watch out for linking your Twitch on the description of the video. Youtube usually low the view distribution for videos with a Twitch link.

  13. Nice work, Brian. Thank you for using your platform for the good of the people.

  14. Time to shave prof. Oh maybe add Philippines too. Lots of player but not a whole lot support either.

  15. awesome job. i hope that with enough feedback, wizards will take more positive action in supporting the Brazilian markets.

  16. We, brazilians, Love u Professor!

  17. I wish you come visit us again soon! It was wonderful to meet you on my very first GP and doing my very first cosplay! We help the community of magic players as best as we can, but a more direct help and appreciation from WotC wouldn't hurt..

    (and carrying Nicol Bolas aka AnjoSerra around the GP was priceless xD)

  18. Not to ever excuse Wizards of the Coast, but it seems to me this is a far wider issue with ultimately the last couple of Brazilian governments actually at fault.

    Just recently it hit me for the umpteenth time that all online stores and (at least board game) crowdfunding campaigns have a pretty consistent list of countries they don't ship to including a handful of hellholes with fairly small populations (where you can understand security concerns on any of multiple levels et cetera), the occasional tiny remote island(s) nation and – sticking out like a sore thumb – Brazil.

    I vaguely remember news in round about 2010 or so of Brazil increasing import tariffs across the board in a (failed) attempt to safeguard its once booming economy from the global recession.

    However, this would only explain local stores not stocking foreign luxury products, not companies outright refusing to sell to Brazilian residents. (Come to think about it, I'm pretty sure I've heard several times that video game consoles are exceptionally hard to get in Brazil.)

    You mentioned customs practices fairly briefly, but to little old layman me that actually explains the situation, namely (seemingly justified) fears of a customs office apparently less trustworthy than your average Third World country's resulting in loads of losses from damaged or disappeared packages.

    South America in general would still rank lower in priority than North America, Western Europe and Eastern Asia (yet higher than Africa or Central Asia) regardless due to average incomes, but there's enough of a middle class and above that corporations wouldn't just ignore one of the largest markets in the world out of laziness.

  19. Oh, prof
    What a video! You touched on a lot of points that really hurt us down here. Thank you so much for bringing attention to these issues.

  20. Thank you professor for coming here to Brazil, I hope you enjoyed your time here. The community of Brazil love you

  21. You, good sir, are awesome. Thanks for the video, and we are waiting you back!

  22. Very good points Prof. But now WOTC is definitely gunna blacklist you ??

  23. Brawl gets so much of Wizards' attention because it's another avenue to push Standard cards on players. The only thing Wizards seems to put any sort of effort in promoting are products and formats that they feel will sell Standard boosters.

  24. Not to toot a horn, but in my new job as a reporter for my local news paper, I had the opportunity to interview an ambassador for the U.S. from Brazil visit Harpers Ferry West Virginia (I work out of Martinsburg, WV). He touched on a similar topic in our talks. He said that while the citizens of America seem to have a great interest in Brazil, corporate America seems to have little interest.

  25. This is what I find frustrating about WotC. They put the effort into producing a game product. That product is uniquely positioned. But they behave like a small company that doesn't have have a read on their customers. Like they don't have a WotC South America Team. They seem so afraid to push their competitive advantage (Magic). Look at the rise of Hearthstone. Best estimate says Hearthstone makes Blizzard the same money that paper Magic makes WotC. I blame that squarely on the MTGO client. Why wasn't Arena in late Beta 5 years ago? Fear to push it too far because they player base will freak out. They'll adapt, like they have so many times before. And those who quit will be replaced by new players with accessible product.

  26. Thank you porfessor for speaking up for us here in Brazil. This feel that wizards of the coast does not care about us is why me and many of my friends has severely reduced the amount of time they spend playing magic or stopped playing altogether. As always, keep up the good content, love your channel.

  27. I'm out of words. This means a lot to me, thank you, prof. ❤️

  28. To all my Lads and Ladies in Latin and South America, I hope Wotc gets wind about this. It's horrible to hear and read what some people are saying in the comments. No GP's since OG Ravnica in Argentina, NO Preview cards for Content Creators, and sets like Battlebond coming late and opened?! I wouldn't want to buy a box to draft with let alone to own if the box is opened. I really hope things improve soon. Cheers from Pennsylvania!

  29. I'm an American magic player and I even find this completely unacceptable. Wizards of the Coast, you need to do better.

    Reply
  30. This makes me happy for the community down there but also sad because they are so dedicated to this game and company and to be so ignored really grinds my gears. Perhaps one day wizards of the coast after they're bankruptcy and/or fallout and wonder: "where was the fan base" they were there wizards. They were there the whole time.

  31. I was actually unaware of a Brazillian MTG community, simply because I've never seen a Portuguese card! I've seen Russian, Chinese, Korean, Spanish, Italian, French, English (of course) and German, but never Portuguese. Very cool to know this game is truly global.

  32. Clickbait but worth the watch. I think this is really what social justice Wizards should be shooting for instead of injecting social appropriations into stories they seem random in.

  33. "Being inclusive is important"
    "The era of feedback"
    "The chinese market is really important, you guys"
    The absolute state of WOTC

  35. "Global series south america" so…. ixalan? Isnt ixalan based at least somewhat on south american culture?

  36. This isn't Magic related, but my dad LOVES Brazil. He got to serve a 2 year religious mission there. I forget which city it was, I'll have to ask him.

  37. Is there secret professor lore we don't know about? REVEAL YOURSELF PROF 0:00

    Reply
  38. Damn I got excited cos I thought this was actually a release, not speculation.

    Reply
  39. Hey Professor, have you ever thought about trying to stream on YouTube? It would make it easier for your subscribers to see the stream, and they would be way more successful I feel!

    Reply
  40. Excellent video… This video was so important. It is quite a clear argument that WOTC is clearly out of touch in this whole region. Huge loss in opportunity.

    Reply
  41. Prof, Once again you're awesome, the fact a person with your level of impact points at something people in latin america had been feeling for years is incredible. Thank you very much for being a so positive member of this community
