Nationals Approacheth!

Postby Chimpster » Wed Aug 03, 2016 11:44 am

Can everyone tell me what they're bringing please so I can tech against it, many thanks ;)

In all seriousness though, with the results through from the Reading regional, what do we think will dominate the event? What do you expect to see the most of? What do you think will underperform?

What do we think will dominate the event?
Whatever wins the game of guess the meta as I think the meta is still sorting itself out, if I had to pick I'd go for HB FA and Whizz

What do you expect to see the most of?
Yellow tag decks and Anarch

What do you think will underperform?
CTM, Dyper ;)
Aldershot - Where the streets are paved with scorch

Swiftie - You will got to the special hell for taking Dyper to a 4 person event

CI, Whizz and Hayley

What do you expect to see the most of?

CtM and ETF rush decks. A resurgence of Anarch, much to Joey's chagrin.

What do you think will underperform?

Agreed with Dave that Sync isn't as good as people thought it was.

How does one person even dominate an event? Anyway, that guy's a scrub.

/What do you expect to see the most of?


Runner Side:
Criminal cards, but not criminals. All the best decks will take significant influence from Criminal faction in either Spy Cameras or Account Siphons.

This is a fancy way of saying Siphon Anarch + Spycams Hayley

Corp Side:
Accelerator cards - Sensie Actor's Unions, Palana food rushy asset cards, Biotics.

I think you'll see a fair amount of Palana but it will be rusher, but I think that will be in 4th behind NEH in third, then CTM in 2nd and ETF in 1st.

Val.

Wild Card Pick - What deck will surprise people in doing well

I think someone will make a decently piloted Gabe do well. I think it might just make the cut on the sheer power of its attack, so long as it is getting good results corpside too.

What do we think will dominate the event?
In terms of players - the top table will be the UK's most consistent players playing "Musical Chairs" over the top X places. I suspect this to include our local Dark Lord Cerberus, Nem, Laurie, etc etc...

In terms of decks? Yellow will as always overpeform, so a mix of CtM, Sync will be doing well. Runner side we'll see Spycam Hayley, Deck-of-the-week Null (or other varients) and other flavours of Anarch.

What do you expect to see the most of?
NBN or ETF, and Spycam decks or Anarch agro decks.

What do you think will underperform?

There's going to be a ton of taggy NBN, Sync and CTM and other sorts. Siphon Anarchs will probably dominate the event, but I wouldn't be surprised if we have a mix of CTM and HB/Palana at the top tables. Something like Blue Sun or CI will probably sneak through and win the whole thing because nobody teched against it.

In retrospect it's such an obvious solution to the CtM matchup :lol: Was really rooting for Tim there in the finals, was a good game of what I saw.

I'm not sure it's a great solution. Tim was in a very strong position that game (Vik played to his outs, but his board was not favourable).
