I've notice lately that most of the main event tourneys are being held in MWS. Is there a reason?
I've used Apprentice for years and find it much easier to learn and use than MWS. Maybe if there was a user guide for MWS I would use it. I've tried having other players talk me thru it and the games last way longer than tourney time would allow.
Any chance of splitting tourneys between the 2 programs? I'd like to play in more than just random pick-up tourneys.

A few years back I played only Apprentice, but my friends stopped using it in favor of appr. I gave MWS a try, and I thought it was slow and difficult to work with a first. Of course after a few weeks I uninstalled appr and never looked back Razz

I've been riding a bike for years and tried skiing yesterday. Skiing was much harder. Logically, skiing sucks and everyone should use a bike instead.

I can use both, but I hate playing MWS. The screen is too cluttered, and I don't like the color composition.

But that's not the point - I'm sure are fans of both. So why not have tournaments in both?

MWS users are like MAC users and Christians. Their arrogant and try pushing their preferences on the rest of us. I can't tell you how many idiots have tried ridding the league of #apprentice all together just because they personally do not find a need for it.
But sadly they managed to cut appr out of trials and now your stuck with minis. Sadly judges stop making appr minis not too long after.
Now your stuck in your own little corner of the server hush hush to the rest of the league. Much like the jewish population or the green party.

I personally use both MWS and Appr and don't care which system I play.

MWS is much better as a program than apprentice
But if someone gets DC ed there is no way to reconnect, in apprentice there is.

Course you probably say the same thing about masterbation and sex. "I've been masterbating for years and tried sex yesterday. Pleasing someone else was much harder. Logically, sex sucks and everyone should just masterbate."

I wasn't saying everyone should use one program or another. I was just wanting equal opportunity for Apprentice users.

I agree with kevinconvery when he said that Apprentice is functionally better and easier to learn. Sure, MWS may have extras that Apprentice doesn't, but if I wanted all the bells and whistles I'd just play MTGO.
