We played 7 rounds of Swiss then cut to the top 8 for elimination. After the Swiss the top 8 looked like this:

Rank Name Prestige SoS RW CW W-T-L
1. Noah Mckee
(Andromeda / Replicating Perfection)
22 135 7 4 4-3-0
2. Joe Filomena
(MaxX / Blue Sun)
22 126 6 5 4-3-0
3. Aaron Freeman
(MaxX / Near-Earth Hub)
22 116 5 6 4-3-0
4. Jason Dauer
(Gabriel Santiago / Engineering the Future)
21 119 6 4 3-4-0
5. Greg Monson
(Andromeda / Blue Sun)
20 110 4 6 3-4-0
6. Kris MacLennan
(Leela Patel / Replicating Perfection)
20 107 6 4 4-2-1
7. Jonathon Dalesandry (Jon)
(Kate “Mac” McCaffrey / Near-Earth Hub)
20 104 3 7 3-4-0
8. Weston Odom
(Kate “Mac” McCaffrey / Replicating Perfection)
19 92 5 5 3-4-0

 

As you can see, with only 24 possible prestige this was a tight cut. However, it was actually a lot closer than the top 8 shows. There was a 10-way tie for 9th (decided by tiebreakers of course) at 18 prestige, and everyone down to 38th place had 16 or more (meaning that they won 2/3 of their games).

Also, possibly even more impressive is that after hours and hours of Netrunner, only one person dropped during the Swiss. Major props to everyone who came out and played, as well as Game Kastle for having us all day!

Finally, after what felt like 18 years of elimination games, the top 8 settled out to this:

Rank Name
1. Noah Mckee
2. Weston Odom
3. Joe Filomena
4. Jonathon Dalesandry (Jon)
5. Aaron Freeman
6. Jason Dauer
7. Greg Monson
8. Kris MacLennan

 

Congrats to Noah McKee on the win! If you’re curious how the elimination rounds played out, check the bottom of this post for a round-by-round breakdown.

Here are the overall corp and runner ID breakdowns. Sorry for the clutteredness; in events this big there is bound to be a lot of variety.

Corps: corp identities

 

and Runners: runner identities

As far as the runner/corp split goes things were pretty even, with corps having a slight edge: runner vs corp wins

 

Elimination round breakdown is below. The corporation player is on the left, runner player on the right. The column to the far right shows the winner.
