Magic Online is not for everyone.
Really magic online is more of a tool for very experienced magic players to make money out of people like me, who are more into the casual aspects of the game. Make no mistake, going into Magic Online, no one there is a novice player. It is not for the casual gamer in any way shape or form.
The game is magic, and its fun, but each and every event is ultra competitive to the point that it makes me sick.
The graphics are very bad, no cool 3d animations, and the images of the cards are crappy, not even high resolution images.
Other bad aspects of the game are how expensive it is. I spent $70.00 for a sealed league, and 4 Booster drafts, have done well in none of them and dont expect to see any of that money back. Another qualm I have with the service is that wizards doesnt even have a very good ability to keep the servers of the game up. If I want to send you money for virtual cards, dont have problems with your servers wizards. The first two days I had playing the game it crashed during a booster draft, for which I did not recieve refund, and it was down when I wanted to play the next day.
I dont recommend this service to any but the most hardcore magic players.
