Done with Netrunner

I stopped buying the data packs with Salsette Island, which I bought just before the first Birmingham regional. Have really struggled to keep up playing along with work over the last 12 months so am now calling it a day and selling everything on. Tipping point was the realisation that I just wasn't ...

Re: Computer games - What are you playing?

Dark Souls is the best game ever made. A mate is currently playing through it for the first time and we ring each other on speaker phone and run around bashing stuff. Superb fun. Dark Souls 3 is great in all kinds of ways, but doesn't quite pip the first for me. Obviously no one thinks 2 is best bec...

Yeah,Run Amok is pretty disgusting. Doesn't even need to be a successful run. One imagines that will be popular.

Re: Tier* 1 Sage Adam

I notice only a single Independent Thinking, which I think is probably the way to go. I actually can't think of that many good reasons to have this card, after all, if you're trashing directives you're losing the upside (as well as the downside) which is what actually makes Adam good. Is there somet...

Re: Big congratulations to all of team UK for such a great world's performance!

The Hoyland vs Wong game is possibly the greatest netrunner game ever recorded? For sheer drama, In years it will be looked back upon like a Eubanks vs Benn, a Hagler vs Hearns :lol: The Dave/Dien game, the Dave/Timmy game and the final itself were all pretty amazing. I did no work last night as a ...

How many games do you play a week?

This is really fuelled by another thought that has popped into my head recently - that I'm not hugely enthusiastic for Netrunner currently - but how many games do you play a week, including Octgn/Jinteki.net etc? I had a big break from the game when I went away to the states and haven't really got b...

Re: Perfect Blue

I think you're right, but uninstalling stuff is always going to be bad for the corp. Even if not that bad (which was the mistake people made when underestimating Leela). Whereas drawing cards can be, and often is, good. So bad Fisk decks will be really bad. I think there is likely a few good Fisk d...

Re: Investment 101 - lets try to make Fisk.

DLR Fisk and create the ultimate mill deck (that isnt noise) ? I tried this with a DLR/Paparazzi/Fall Guy/Wireless Net Pavillion combo and it was a pain in the arse. Too many bits to set-up. I think the dream of being able to deck the corp with Fisk will remain just that, but as more of a control t...

Re: Podcast - Run Last Click

The more serious discussion part of this one was very interesting and the suggestions and points made were all very valid. The feeling I got was that no-one on the show wanted to DQ anyone ever. Which sounds flippant but it isn't, as all examples cited were about mistakes so it's a good thing. Now, ...

040715 Wayland's Single Core 1/10 - BANG BANG

Pardon me while I post a little tournament report as I've only gone and finally bloody won one. I’d had a little bit of practice with some single core set decks ahead of this, with Neil C schooling me in the ways of HB (making all the money and triple biotic-ing a Pri Req like a dick) and Brian and ...

Re: Uplink 20 1 Core Set Tournament - Birmingham 4th July

7 Gabes, 2 Noises (of which I was one) and a Kate.

I think it was 6 HB, 2 NBN and 2 Jinteki. The two NBN made top 4 though.

Special mention to James and Steve for keeping the Jinteki fires burning. My loyalty didn't run that deep, sadly. Enjoyed myself massively, probably mainly due to winning a lot (not my usual style) but a large part of it for me was being able to map out potential scenarios in my head fairly accurate...
