H&P is released tomorrow, and I know Worcester expects to have it on the release date. Does that mean it's legal for Regionals? My understanding is that it IS legal in the US, but that European reps have "discretion".

Frankly, I hope it is legal. These meta shake-ups are always so much fun, and give us scrubs a chance to get lucky!

I'm finding it impossible to sign up for an account on your website to book tickets. Is this a known problem or something just for me?

Can someone please put a seat aside for little old me regardless ;)

I had the same problem. You have to register for an account separately not as part of a purchase then it gives you extra fields and works.

Hi

Correct. The stores website doesn't seem to want to allow a new account to be created during a purchase. I nearly rage-quit before I found that it works fine if you go through the standard user creation without a problem

Hi all, I went to the tournament today at Firestorm and thought I'd register to say what a great bunch of people were there playing. I've only been playing for near 2 months and could count the number of proper games ive had on two hands so I was a bit nervous about making some mistakes but whenever I needed help with anything during a match every player was very understanding. I came second last overall (tennin institute jinteki and kit shaper) so not a great result but I had a great time, learned a massive amount and am looking forward to doing some more tournaments soon. Cant wait to see the videos uploaded of the day here too!

Glad you enjoyed it bud! The community is pretty great I've found, which makes for a great gaming atmosphere and gives everyone a reason to come back!

Shout out to the guys I played today too, all rounds were great fun and I had a good laugh all day.

A long fun day, with terrible results for me. As a great man once said, some days you eat the bar and some days the bar eats you with 4 bonus net damage. My brain hurts.

Seriously Dave: your corp play during that game was some next level stuff. Incredibly close game. My lesson of the day: security testing is nuts.

Those of you who watched the first game of the Cardiff Regional Top 8 will know what wonder is about to fill their eyes. The rest of you owe it to yourselves to bask in the glory of the craziest cast you ever will see!

A few mistakes around, but it was still possibly the "best" game of netrunner I've ever played.

Also, I note your comments about Alias vs Tsurugi. If I'd managed to get the femme out it would have been useful, but apart from that there simply isn't anything better in Criminal.

Ninja? That's the curse of a 10 influence deck.
