2010-11 Precon Championships: We Have a Winner
When we first began the Preconstructed Deck Championships a year ago, we knew we wanted to get to a place with it that engaged you, the reader, but we weren’t quite certain how. We gave it some further thought the next time, for the 2009-10 Champions, and were encouraged when a number of you continued to leave predictions for each match. Third time lucky, as they say, we’re thrilled with the format- and turnout- for this inaugural contest event, and you can be sure we’ll be doing it this way going forward.
Our thanks to everyone who tried their hand at prediction! It was close right up to the end, but to no-one’s surprise Icehawk came through at the end to claim the winner’s spot. With a very strong 65% prediction rate, he’s the grand prize winner of an Innistrad and M12 Intro Pack.
Sadly, we’ll have to wait until a year from now to run the 2011-12 championships, but as we did last time we’ll be going back in time for the next. Which season is on deck? You’ll just have to wait and see, but we’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a pretty exciting one! And yes, decks will be on offer for the giveaway, just as now.
Given that it takes about two months to post a Championship in this format (less for earlier years when we didn’t have anywhere near as big a field as we do these days), the question next becomes how often do you want to see them? We have a lot of fun doing them, but we don’t want it to become ordinary or mundane. Kindly share your thoughts on the sidebar survey, and we’ll see what folks have an appetite for!
Here’s the final leaderboard. Again, congratulations to Icehawk (we’ll be in touch), and thanks to everyone else for making it such a blast.
