It is confirmed by official forum HEX employee that the prizes for this tournament are all paid by Set 2 packs (most player should be happier with this decision).
For the packs, you need 4 set 2 packs and 2 set 1 packs.
Although I’ve been a VIP member, I have not yet tried the VIP tournament to this date, but this time I may try my first Sealed tournament, which turns out to be the VIP tournament.
