Eudemonia Store Championship 2015 Results

Thanks to everyone who came out for Eudemonia’s first Store Championship! This is also the first store championship I’ve TO’d, and I have to thank Brian, Matthew and Tim for all their help in running the event. We had a software malfunction, and decided to abandon technology and run the tournament on paper. Someone hacked NRTM! Noise perhaps? Or Maxx? Paper pairings were a pain, but we made it work. Lets just say I’m very appreciative to live in the age of iPads and smart phones (when they work).

We had a turnout of 26 people, and ran 5 rounds of swiss with a cut to Top 8. This is the first SC I know of in the Bay Area where The Valley was legal, and we certainly saw it affect deck selection. Glacier was very well represented, with only 2 NBN fast advance decks holding out against the storm of Clots… which didn’t show up! Of the 26 Corp decks, only 2 ran any copies of Clot, and both of those were Shapers who opted for 1 copy each. It seems everyone believed bringing FA would be too risky, but also assumed everyone else would bring the Clots which would make it so. Despite the FA-hate in The Valley, the only two NBN FA decks made it all the way to the finals. We had quite a diverse top 8 with every faction on both sides represented, and of the 16 total decks in the cut, 14 were unique identities. Seems like diversity is alive and well in the current Netrunner meta!

Games of Berkeley Store Championship 2015 Results

This was the biggest store championship I have been a part of at 55 players.

Luckily that rain cleared up in the morning because we had to announce pairings outside!

We played 6 rounds of Swiss and then cut to the top 8. The final game was played around 11:30pm. It was a long day!

With that number of players, I decided it was best if I focus on running the event which ended up being a good idea. I was able to focus on rulings and getting game results entered into the iPad which probably saved us about an hour over the day.

At the end of the day, Matthew Harrison-Trainor won his second Store Championship with Andy and NEH. Noah McKee had an insane run in Swiss, ending up with 22 prestige after only dropping 1 game.

I always like to see the Corp/Runner win ratio.

winsCorps had a healthy advantage at 53% of the wins vs 43% for runner. The missing percents were in the ties (where Corp also had an advantage).

 

Over 330 games were played that day (not including the non-tournament games I forced people to play between rounds when they finished early).

corp-identitiesIn terms of Corp IDs, NEH was the most prevalent at 14 players. This matches expectations but what was a bit surprising was the amount of ETF at 9 players. From there, there was great diversity featuring everything from Gagarin to Custom Biotics.

runner-identities

Andromeda was of course featured heavily but I was surprised to see how popular Chaos Theory is right now (actually beating Andy in the popularity contest). Overall, there was a huge amount of diversity in runner IDs.

Gamescape North Store Championship 2015 Results

Twenty two players attended the 2015 Gamescape North Store Championship. It was a very competitive field. We had a pretty even split on Corp and Runner wins:

Noah McKee fought his way through the Swiss and top 8 elimination rounds to be crowned (or plaqued?) store champion.

I don’t have deck lists for this one but here are the full results from the day.

Thanks to everyone who attended and especially Gamescape North for hosting!

Game Kastle Santa Clara Store Championship 2015 Results

Forty two players competed on Saturday, February 21st 2015 at the Game Kastle Santa Clara Store Championship. The field was diverse! We played 6 rounds with no cut.

The top 8 featured Leela, Blue Sun, Kit, Tennin, Noise, CI, Andy, ETF, Kate, RP, Gabe, and NEH. The Corp/Runner Win/Lose ratio was nearly 50/50. What a great time to play Netrunner!

I collected the decks for the top 4 players and posted them on Netrunner DB. Here they are:

Joe Filomena’s Leela and Blue Sun

Robby Fry’s Kit and Tennin

Aleksander Ornaf’s Noise and CI

Brian Cronin’s Andromeda and ETF

And here are all the details!

Netrunner at GDC

Last year I organized a casual Netrunner meetup during the Game Developers Conference here in San Francisco. A bunch of people showed up so let’s do it again!

For those of you who clicked this link and don’t know what is going on, Netrunner is an asymmetrical physical card game of bluffing, risk, intrigue, and teacup giraffes.

It is a heck of a lot of fun too. So if you know how to play or want to learn, here are the details.

We will meet in the food court of the Sony Metreon on Tuesday, March 3rd starting at 6pm and going until they kick us out. That is the street level of the Metreon. Look for this guy or all the people playing card games.

If you are brand new, I recommend watching these tutorial videos before playing.

Hope to see ya there!

Announcing Achievements at the Games of Berkeley February Tournament

Last month I asked the attendees if they would be interested in having achievements during the monthly GoB tournament and there seemed to be a lot of interest so here we go!

I am always pretty cautious of achievements in general as they can really disrupt the overall fun of the game. I didn’t want achievements that would encourage regressive decks that simply try to grind out an achievement at the cost of losing the game as this would ruin the fun for the opponent.

So the way these achievements work, you only count them in games you have won. You still need to build a deck that can win games and hopefully, the tournament. These are intended to slightly encourage you to build and play a deck you maybe wouldn’t have played otherwise. And these are entirely optional. Feel free to completely ignore them. I also tried to theme them around Order & Chaos.

There will be a special prize for the player that wins each achievement. Tie breakers will be resolved based on tournament standing. I am hoping to theme the prizes around the achievements. They will likely be smaller card or board games that GoB has in stock and will be purchased with the entry fees.

This month we have:

Runner – That PAD Will Rot Your Brain! – This achievement is won by the player who has acquired the most brain damage at the end of each game they win.

Corp – Advance The Win! – This achievement is won by the player who has the most advancement tokens in play at the end of each game they win.

The tournament is happening on Sunday, February 8th. This is an experiment and I hope everyone has fun with these!
