On Sunday, March 27, 2022 at 4:01pm EST, MetaZoo Games founder Michael Waddell started up another MetaZoo Hour on the official MetaZoo Discord server.
There were a total of 64 MetaZoo related questions & 1 personal/unrelated questions that were asked by members of the MetaZoo Discord community, and the answers all came directly from Michael Waddell himself; unless otherwise stated.
The Discord usernames of those who asked the questions is also now being provided at the end of the questions themselves.
If you’d rather have the hour read out to you so that you can multi-task, or whatever the reason may be, and hear further discussions on the topics that were brought up, MetaZoo HQ’s Video Partner Fizggig🕊️ will be live streaming the MetaZoo Hour with some of the Caster Society team on the Caster Society Twitch Channel🕊️ (No live stream due to audio issues) Here is the solo video:
Michael Waddell at 4:01pm EST:
@everyone MetaZoo Hour begins now! Ask me anything in 📝-metazoo-chat
As always, we’ll start off with the MetaZoo-related questions first, in the order that they were received, and then move onto the personal questions afterward. Try searching for things such as “Wilderness” or “Magicast” to narrow-down the results. It all works dynamically. 🙂
Wilderness and something else
Lol wut, we are announcing an expanded partnership with them this week that includes a promo card
Hold onto your hat, we got some crazy collabs coming
it has, yes
I’m proud of all the work our artists and staff did. It’s our best set so far
yes, but first, a pullback from LGS
Wilderness in walmart will be 1st edition, but moving forward it won’t be 2nd edition, but rather specially labeled collabs specific to that big box location, like a 7-11 blister pack with 7-11 on the cards themselves
if they are out by then
scav hunt will be in person, real world
We are working seriously with amazon for our bulk dtc fulfillment.
if they reach out to me, sure
I work with the team to choose
Our process is complicated, but everyone gets creative input
Mike says “1st” not connected to this question, but this might be a hint for Magicast release?
Tarot for seance
We will be working with Topps and Fanatics on athletes with cryptids
Let’s just say MTG and sports cards are moving to more of a DTC(Direct to Consumer) method for a reason
yes, and all weekend
we will announce rules soon
Will be revealed in Grimm’s Kingdom
Announcement coming this week
Hasn’t been announced yet, but when it is..Minds will be blown ( Chaos Crystal Enthusiast)
No, but he’s in the book
Biggest this year, bigger next year
Yes, but we won’t babysit LGSs. There’s an alternative way to regulate pricing
(Chaos)-We don’t and don’t plan to put out cards[barring any that don’t inherently have any actual gameplay mechanics or use] that are not tournament legal. After all, why would we make fun cards nobody can play with?
(Chaos)- They’ll be going to LGS’ soon.
Even when we 10x our fanbase this year, print runs won’t increase
lol, you wouldn’t believe me if I told you
Probably end of this week
No, we will deliver on the product advertised
will our fans like it, will it expand the fanbase, does it make sense
Announcement coming this week
By being realistic, and by removing product from the hands of people who don’t know how to be resilient
Oh yea we are going to france in april
Next 2 weeks are stacked
there will be rarity
No, collectors/investors/players all have a place in metazoo
realistically no, practically if 1 billion people sign up, then yes
Already at walmart, coming to target soon, and lots more big box on the way
Michael Waddell at 5:00pm EST:
okay thank you everyone!!! Have a wonderful weekend. Well, end of the weekend lol
