Re: Let's Attend Some Store Championships

You can crash at mine if you want mate. I'm heading to DS on the sunday, haven't worked out trains yet. I live about ten mins from Reading on the train (but on the Waterloo line. Finish work at 6.30 on Saturday. That would be great! Idk what time we're due back in Reading - it's 4 rounds and either...

Re: Let's Attend Some Store Championships

Hello Readingers! Due to an imminent and unexpected move abroad, this weekend is my only chance to attend any scs. You might be wondering what this has to do with you, given that this weekends scs are in Exeter and London. Well... WELL... I was enquiring in stimhack slack chat where halfway between ...

Re: My first runner deck (mistakes were made)

Yeah to be fair it's actually entirely legit in a deck with Progenitor, [Hivemind] and Virus Breeding Ground - you can be back at strength 4 after 2 clicks of your first turn following a purge once you're fully set up. The only reason I didn't use it more was Blackmail is an even easier way in :P I'...

Darwin was the only icebreaker in my Oxford SC winning runner deck. I lost the one game where I can remember actually installing it.

Re: Stuck for runner

Two lists jumped out at me from worlds as being interesting and worth trying - the obvious one is the book of kate, which looks like an interesting variant on normal prepaid and definitely worth a few games, and the other was Apocalypse Now/Fury Road. I'd been playing apocalypse maxX at the Southamp...

Re: Tier* 1 Sage Adam

Adam is a dick to Sol, because all his own cards are so marginal it's impossible to pick something worthwhile for Targeted Marketing that he's actually definitely running :P I guess picking brain chip is probably the way to go, or maybe just Kati and hope it's not some odd build that's avoided her. ...

Re: Bring the Noise

I've been back on Noise for a while now, and recent testing has suggested that against Fastro you're probably better off going for a control game than trying to R&D dig. CVS makes medium really sad, and their ice can be awkward for the sort of repeated runs it requires, especially when you have ...

Be careful there, a lot of people are packing 3x lamprey these days, leaving it totally open is asking for trouble. Token defence is usually all that's needed, but it really is needed!

Re: Hybrid valencia

Even without changing to Escher, t seems a shame not to include the full 3x SoT when you're paying 4 inf a pop for Siphons, especially since Val gets good value out of using them on Blackmail too. You could easily lose an Inject, IHW or Chronotype for it, having all of those really is an insane amou...

Re: Because We Built It - Part 3: Executives and Exposes

I agree pure rush certainly isn't in a good spot right now and isn't worth including as an archetype all of it's own, I just think a little more clarification on what fast advancing is and how you need to think about the other ways your deck can score (especially now with Clot being a big thing) mig...

Re: Because We Built It - Part 3: Executives and Exposes

I think you've made a bit of a mistake in your classification of fast advance decks. It's a common error but one of the things that bugs me most in netrunner discussions so I had to bring it up - you've conflated Fast Advance and Rush. These are two very different strategies! Fast Advance means scor...

And you're paying for the utterly ridiculous rez cost on Old Hollywood Grid how exactly? Also worth noting that you have to pay to re-play currents with Sol - I think you're gonna need a bunch more money if you want to be able to get the big ice rezzed and still afford the Grid and endless ELPs.

Re: Mentally preparing myself for Quinns tomorrow

If you've not booked it yet, just get a ticket that goes straight through to the local station, that should let you on the relevant tubes and local trains. There seem to be 2 stations within 10 mins walk of the venue, Dalston Kingsland was the easiest to get to from Euston but it'd be worth checking...

Power Shutdown is definitely my preferred approach as I've always loved that card anyway, but there's another trick you can pull with some decks: get both a strength 4 Code Gate and Sentry on the same server. If you can get a Lotus field set up with a surprise Ichi inside it you have the potential t...
