Welcome to the OPEN BETA version of the TCGplayer Draft Simulator
. We are now allowing the general public to test the Single Player
version of the draft simulator. Based upon the feedback that you provide us [HERE
] we will then be adjusting the draft simulator for a full fledged launch. Please note that this is in BETA and the main reason we are launching this to the public is to gather drafting data and card pick numbers so that we can make further changes to improve the Bot AI.

1) Your system is telling me I must be a Forum Member to use the Simulator.
That is correct. In order to track and store all of the information about your Drafts we need to have you logged in to tie all of this information to a user. Registration for our forum boards is 100% FREE.
2) Does this Simulator allow me to play World of Warcraft TCG?
No. This simulator only allows you to practice your drafting and review your drafts and how your opponents drafted around you. To play
World of Warcraft TCG against other players we suggest you use visit your local hobby store.
3) Can I use this simulator to draft against other players?
This current Beta version is Single Player Only
. However, we hope to launch an 8 player version that will also be available for Beta testing.
4) Is this simulator only for the World of Warcraft TCG?
This Beta version is only for drafting World of Warcraft TCG. However, we have already launched a version for Magic: the Gathering [HERE
5) Beta testing this program is great, but will you be charging for this simulator when it is finally launched?
No. This is not a replacement for playing the World of Warcraft TCG. This is just a simulator to practice and review your drafting and thus increase your skill. As such we will NEVER be charging a fee to use the TCGplayer Draft Simulator. To play the World of Warcraft TCG against other players we suggest you visit your local hobby store.
6) What is a "Bot".
The bots are automated drafters that use behind the scenes scripting to try and draft at an average player competence level. The bots make their card decisions based upon hundreds of factors, with a primary leaning towards the power ranking of the cards. This power ranking is adjusted based upon the analaysis of what Humans are drafting when using the Simulator. So the bots will pick up on trends as new archetypes in drafting appear an old draft decks disappear from popularity.
7) How do you decide what is in a pack?
Our system does NOT use print runs. It is a 100% random system based around the rarity odds that UDE releases.
8) I want to review what the Bots drafted near me.
Just go to the main Draft Page
, and click on Watch Draft #xxx
or put the number of the draft you want to review in the search box. You will be taken to a table diagram of a completed draft and can watch what happened in each seat.
9) This Draft Simulator has increased my confidence, how do I play a complete draft versus other players?
It is great to hear that our simulator has helped you better understand drafting. To continue your experience and draft for real prizes versus other players we suggest you ask your local hobby store owner to offer events based around drafting
