Vintage Preliminary Events

MTGO rolled out an update to tournaments. Now there are daily Challenges called “Preliminary Events”, and they start at different times of the day. In general, I favor this.

But it’s less than a week until 2020, and, somehow, they haven’t figured out how to automate the schedule, most likely in XML, into a webpage calendar to make it easy to see. Want to put some icing on that cake? Let you choose your timezone to automagically convert it for the user. That’s what a good UI does, right? Does the work for the user?

Pro tip:
Hire a smart, lazy engineer and let them automate their job. Then ask them what else they need to automate.
