Hi everyone

Sorry that he info above is all TBC (to be confirmed)

The store is having some minor problems with their new system, and as soon as the bugs are all worked out, we will get the event info finalized and updated here for you

Update: (26/02/2014)
Hi everyone

Some more information from the store regarding the delays. The problems they are experiencing are primarily with the website events calendar and payment system, hense the fact that they haven't been able to set the event up online. They have people in today to sort it out, so hopefully they will be 100% back to normal within the next couple of days

They have given me the date that the store championship has been set for, so you can at least start making plans, and I will post here ASAP when they are able to take bookings for the event.

Once again, sorry for the inconvenience and delay.

There's a decent chance that I can make this, and possibly other Bristol people too.

I think a Bristol raiding party should be coming over the bridge to access your servers.

Hi everyone

Still no word about getting an online ticket sale up for this event. The store employees are working late most nights getting all their stock entered on the new stock system, so I've left them in peace, but I will try and ask when I'm there on Saturday, since that will mark 3 weeks till the event.

Hi everyone

Something weird is going on with the online ticket purchase for the Netrunner store championships. It's listing the event for the 10th of May, rather than the 29th of March

The store has been notified, and I will post the link as soon as it's fixed.

In the meantime, price and nr of tickets have been updated above

Does the deck list have to be printed? I have hand-written a deck list for Oxford, and there's a reasonable chance that there will be no changes in the meantime.

Hi Mendax

I've been told that you have to supply a printed deck list, but if you want to check with the store directly, they can be contacted here:
http://www.firestormgames.co.uk/contact
or on 02920 227117

Sorry I can't provide any more clarification myself.

It's not a problem, I was just hoping I could be lazy and submit the same piece of paper for both events.

Hi everyone

Sorry, but the store still hasn't fixed the date on the ticket. (sigh)

If anyone would like to pre-order a ticket before Saturday, here is the link:
http://www.firestormgames.co.uk/netrunner-store-championship

Please note that the nr of tickets sold is also wrong. (sigh)
I've been told that over 16 tickets have already been sold

Do we have any expected numbers for this from other stores? We're trying to get an idea on how many will be here in total. :)

The other store champs have all been in the low to high twenties mark... In the UK anyway, USA has had crazy variation, like from 7 to 50...

Hi everyone

one of the players at the store championships lost a Jackson Howard. If you find that you have accidently shuffled it into your deck or something, can you please let me know so that we can try and get it back to him

Thanks
