If you win it and can't use it, I'd be happy to take it off your hands.

Just to fuel the prize speculation, the only thing we know for sure is that it is NOT a new prize.

We also know that they don't repeat prizes other than Winter/Summer FtF combos more often than every two years (usually three years for non-October prizes), so we can rule out some recent offerings.

Likeliest possibilities:
3 Stat-Switch Potions
Super Team

Possibilities with some overlap with ZAP abilities:
10 +1 bonus potions
3 Favorites potions

Old prizes that haven't been offered in some time:
3 Growth/Shrink Potions
5 Stat Raise Potions

Crazy out-of-left-field possibilities:
87 Point Warrior
Style Switch
Team Stat-Switch

You are certainly entitled to your opinion, however much it defies conventional wisdom.

Keep in mind that we won't know what the prize is for the April Mail-in until someone gets an announcement sometime this week. 3 Potions of Stat-switch is pure speculation on our part.


Well, if we are using conventional wisdom...Cute way of saying my opinion was dumb by the way Wink ...But I don't have stacks of roll ups-laying around. To be honest, I have zero roll ups laying around.

So, if by some fluke I did win the prize, I would have to start a team or DA someone and hope for a replacement that could use the prize. Neither is in my future.

I also said I would never win it anyway. So what does it matter?

I also know this is not official. I read that as well.

But it is great that there might be a prize that better helps you guys. Rolling Eyes Laughing

Not dumb, just not a widely held opinion.

IF this ends up being the prize that is offered and IF a micro-manager wins it, I would be happy to send them a neat team roll-up that can be used to make three 21-21s with the prize. That way, they could start a single new team, run the warriors in tournaments or whatever, and it wouldn't require a large expansion of their Duel2 budget.

6-4-15-5-13-21-6
4-9-16-4-9-13-15
16-6-8-9-9-16-6
12-16-7-9-10-11-5
15-10-11-9-9-11-5

The first three don't make perfect 21-21s, but they are quite reasonable for being on a single team sheet.

----------

The tourney announcement was reportedly mailed yesterday, so we should get some info any day now. The suspense is killing me!

The tourney announcement is up. 3 potions of stat-switch is the prize.

Better than I thought, I thought it'd be just switching one stat for another, but the potions are to re-arrange ALL stats, then 3 rolls to choose from. Pretty powerful prize, IMO.

RSI's 6 month policy has been stretched and ignored so often that I can't imagine that would be strict with it this time. If you do win and the 6 month time frame doesn't work, ask RSI and I'd bet they'd extend it for you.

And as has been mentioned, there are stacks of teams that would make very viable stat-switch targets sitting in people's hands. I've actually been a bit shocked at how easy it is to find 'good' stat-switch setups. Finding perfect triple-21 or Jalon setups is a different story.
