Our rules have been updated and given their own forum

This is not a post meant to flame or insult anyone, just to express my own feelings on a specific part of the con this year. Though I reserve the right to apply the term "Silly goose" to the company in charge if the specific events here (as outlined in the Grand Edict rules).
I just need to get this off my chest, and I really don't know where else to present my dissatisfaction. I love PAXEast and this is my 6th year going. I always spend at least one full day playing MtG. This year it really seems to have been handled very poorly. There were no sanctioned format constructed events on the list. I contacted the company 2x attempting to find an explanation of some sort. I never received a response. When I asked at their table about it, they gave this answer: "We did research and found that players don't like bringing their cards, so we chose to stick with sealed and draft." This is absurd. I spoke to several other players about this and each one not only had decks, but didn't understand this reasoning. It just ended up feeling like they didn't want to run events where they weren't selling product.
