Supreme System Overlord
Council of Elders
I don't know if you follow the drama with WotC. Given their year of one bad move after another I don't see how you can't.
So apparently some YouTuber ordered a bunch of cards from a set and he got sent the wrong set and did an unboxing on his channel. There were cards that aren't released yet so everything he posted was spoilers.
Well, it seems while most normal companies would email or call the guy, WotC felt like it was a good move to send a mercenary security team of "private investigatos" to the guy's house, bully his wife and makes threats of fines and jailtime if he didn't turn over the cards.
I try really hard to divest WotC from their parent company, Hasbro, since Hasbro has been a very important part of our hobby - and when Brian Goldner was still with us, a very reputable and ethical company.
But I don't know how they can let WotC go unchecked like this over and over again to the point where every ounce of good will has been burned to the ground.
What are your thoughts on all this? It's not directly related to Transformers so do you even care?
