The official Magic: The Gathering Twitter account has responded to the community asking for the two $25,000 winners of the FNM at Home: Featuring MrBeast event that took place in MTG Arena last April, confirming that there are two winners, which they promise to announce publicly soon.
Hey everyone, we’ve seen a lot of chatter about the FNM at Home: Featuring MrBeast event winners today. We do have two winners who will be announced publicly soon. Stay tuned! https://t.co/UAPh55eaBf— Magic: The Gathering (@wizards_magic) June 28, 2021
The tweet comes after fans on social media have complained about the lack of transparency despite multiple requests asking for the names of the two $25,000 winners. All players had to do to win this contest was play against MrBeast during this MTG Arena event, and they didn't even have to win the match, but of course, they had to be lucky to match-up randomly with MrBeast and play the entire the game to win $25,000.
states that anyone can send a request before June 23 in order to get a copy of the winners list. However, fans reported that they never received any answers after requesting, and the only response they got was confirmation that their ticket was sent and received.
It's assuring to hear that Wizards of the Coast will announce the two winners of the event, but why did it take two months and the community to voice out this concern? Hopefully, MrBeast will upload a YouTube video revealing the enitre matches of himself playing against the winners.
In recent months, the Magic community have criticized Wizards of the Coast's silence on the Greenlight Fund, and their decision to cut the World Championship prize pool by $750,000. Even after WotC's announcement confiming that there are two winners, it looks like fans are still upset about these issues.
