Games of Berkeley Noise Tournament

 

port-ill-noiseWe are doing something special at the September Games of Berkeley tournament.

Local player Stephen Lee went to Gen Con and returned with a coveted alt art Noise. He wanted to do something fun with it so he donated it to the tournament.

The top Noise player at this month’s tournament will receive this card!

There is no requirement to play Noise. It is otherwise a normal constructed tournament. Hope to see you there!

2014 California Regional Tournament Results

Preliminary Swiss results are below (these are NOT official but are a reconstruction of results, whatever Gamescape North says goes). First, a few summary charts:

ID Breakdown

Runners won 42% of their games while Corporations won 59% of their games (they don’t add to 100% because of missing ID data). Does that mean Corporations are advantaged right now? Not quite. In games involving top players, the runner actually won more often than the Corporation. If we focus on the tables involving the top players, then gradually relax the definition of what a ‘top table’ is, the runner win% declines.

Or put simply, when both players are really good, Runners have the upper hand.

Event Report – Games of Berkeley Overdrive Draft 6/15/14

This event was hosted by me and billed as the first Overdrive draft event in the Bay Area. From the moment these were announced, Brian and I bugged the store and got the earliest available date, thanks to the Games of Berkeley store staff for accommodating us (Netrunner is taking off there with 5 staff members or so playing regularly).

7 people showed up, which made it a bit of a logistical conundrum since it blows to pay so much for a draft then run the risk of having a bye and playing 1 fewer round.  Since all of us were experienced with tournaments, we decided to draft both sides, then do away with formal rounds and pairings, and just keep rotating in the ‘bye’ player, with an eye for slow matches. Originally we hoped to have a round-robin, but drafting + construction took 1h15min and since everybody had done 4 rounds 4h30min later and we bumped against the store closing time, 4 was a logical place to end it.

Event Report – Two Cats 5/11/14 (Honor & Profit)

I’ll call my return to Netrunner and the tournament scene after sitting out the entire Spin Cycle ‘The Relapse’. A new job had given me more time to explore Netrunner (in addition to the other board games I play, not in place of, as had been before), the draft format got me peeking at a few Spin Cycle cards, Brian’s and Eric’s community efforts, especially with the ‘6 meat damage’ Google group whetted my appetite, and I just knew I needed to come back after seeing the text of Sundew (JintekiRP has always been my favorite ID).

Only 8 people showed up, since it was Mother’s Day (did we like Netrunner more than our moms, or do our moms not care about us?), and most players were going experimental, since they’d already received most of the loot from Season One. For a scrub like me, I needed every advantage I could get!
