Re: Playing Against Headlock

I've been known to carry a Cyberdex - if you can get them to access it one way or the other it gives you a free purge which helps the Lamprey situation. If you've got enough ICE, binning some to kill Knights is always an option. Generally most decks these days need some kind of protection from the A...

Re: Nationals / Uroboros - Who Are You?

I'll quickly stick my head in and say hello! I was Peter Hopkins, glasses and a Weyland Yutani T shirt on (which was I think exactly the same as Dylan's Weyland hoodie). Good to see you again, and that you were wearing the same uniform as your Nottingham brethren! ;) I was rocking a neoreading grid...

Nationals / Uroboros - Who Are You?

Hi! If you were at the Uroboros cup on Sunday you probably heard me shouting. That was me. Everyone knows the Dark Lord and with Vinegary Mink winning Nationals I'm pretty sure we're all up to speed on him. I had a tall flame-haired gentleman chatting to me on the Sunday, whom I have since determine...

Re: Nationals Crystal Ball

Nationals was great! The Good Loads of players, loads of familiar faces, new Net Friends, new nemeses. Getting up there near the top. A better play with my Corp should have seen me make more of my second game with Ian R. Double loss then saw me out of top 16, but they were massively hard fought and ...

Re: Nationals Crystal Ball

I'm in. If someone makes top 16 with silhouette, I'll get them a beer. There's nothing wrong with her per se, she's just a less good version of Andromeda IMHO. As with all things Netrunner it tends to be less about "is this card any good?" and more about "is there a similar card that ...

I'm not clear on what the store legs and last chance qualifier would then send forward to the finals. Is it just the winner of each? While I'm not one of those keen on London, a day trip is okay. Doing a weekend in London though would be pricey with accommodation etc. If there was a situation where ...

Yes, discussion is fine. Someone telling you you should use your influence on something else other then Snare after you've just flatlined them with it is a bit silly. When they refuse to engage and just type "No" on further discussion,its fruitless and time to close the window. ;)
