Cranston's app has the MEC doing the 25 points of damage as it was originally thought we would get 2021 tokens for V3b. When does the change in MEC start V3b, V4a, or when we get 2021 tokens or some other date?

VTD 3b is the first event to use the new mechanics. The TDb entry for Mad Evoker's Charm now states that explicitly.

Here's the deal: Months ago, when we had to make this decision, we though we'd have the 2021 tokens in hand at this point. It was thus decided to implement the mechanics starting with VTD 3b. Unfortunately, a certain world-wide event caused shipping delays. I apologize if that causes any consternation. We do our best to predict these kinds of things, but sometimes the die roll does not come up in our favor.
Have you looked it up in the TDb ?

Yeah I hope no one is upset by this. We just wanted a confirmation on the date. And it is provided so I am happy about that. (even if I don't like the new MEC...lol).

This is a bad decision.

The replacement tokens are not available yet, the necklace is not available yet.

Why are you punishing Wizards by forcing this terrible change?

Delay it until 2021 tokens are in hand at the minimum

Whether it's bad or good at this point is moot. It is what it is and cannot be changed. We tried our best to anticipate when the tokens would ship. We got it wrong. We're sorry.

Definitely no need to apologize.

Sometimes things don't go the way we've planned.

It's no one's fault.

Can people equip the Wizard Relic and Legendary for V3B so we can start collecting data to show it is fair or broken as is? Since we are implementing MEC changes, it seems reasonable. Especially for people with the ingredients.

I would think not, since you (or someone in your group) must physically have the token to equip it. This has been addressed in a different post.

The token isn’t physically available yet due to a once in a lifetime global event. The event is online due to a once in a lifetime global event. And this is the first token TD has said they want to see how it plays before they make a judgement. It seems reasonable to weigh these three facts and say okay, this token is a special exception because of all of that paired with it changing the MEC to be worse.
