I was playing on MTGO last night and there was an update. When I entered a multiplayer commander game everyone's life total was at 30.

It seems, WOTC has decided to link Commander and Brawl and set them both to 30. There may be some other explanation I have overlooked, but I was rather annoyed that they would make this change, and because of the ridiculous way the site is now organized, finding any specific information on the changes is nigh impossible.

As an aside, they also updated a bunch of random legends to have the new card frame.

Anyway for the 3 people who might care about this, what are your thoughts?

Sounds like a programmer SNAFU. I bet Wizards will acknowledge it’s a mistake, bit it’ll take months for them to fix it. Try using a planeswalker as commander, that will probably work as well.

In other news, I have an EDH deck on MTGO, so I care. I never play though, that should be remedied as well. In some months time.

I wouldn't bet on it. It seems to me just another in the list of changes they have been making to eradicate normal EDH in MTGO (such as removing more than 4 players, changing the "solitaire playtest" to only use 1:1 rules, segregating decklists, etc.) for years now.

MTGO is slowly becoming "no casual allowed."

Edit: Shabbaman called it:

Fourth, we launched an exciting new format in Brawl, but in the process somehow broke the starting life totals for both Commander and 1v1 Commander. We will be fixing this tomorrow morning. In the interim, the 1v1 Commander league has been removed and will be replaced after the fix has been deployed. In addition, the storm counter appears to be broken, which we will be looking to fix in the next week or two.

Tomorrow morning isn’t in a few months!

At least they fixed it. I was surprised they mentioned it, I too expected it to be swept under the rug.
