Online CCG Play – A Prediction

One man’s predictions for a possible future for Magic Online (the online version of the popular collectible card game Magic: The Gathering). He’s predicting a less than rosy future for it based on the idea that 90% of the people playing will be… less than personable.
Speaking from experience I know that playing CounterStrike I encountered a lot of people who were able to both intentionally and unintention ruin play at various times. But on the whole I didn’t stick with it for a couple of years just because I had nothing better to do. There was still plenty of fun gameplay to be had and there were lots of times when I saw behavior that was exemplary. Maybe we’ll be lucky and he’ll be wrong. Or maybe anybody who wants to play will have to go get a free Thawte certificate to verify who they are so if they misbehave they can be embarrassed and they won’t be able to just escape into another identity.
