Yeah, saw and immediately emailed them. I did cancel before, honest! I guess the email just got lost in the ether.

Don't worry about it, Waylands are painfully technophobic so I'm sure the fault is their end! Apparently they've just hired a friend of a friend who actually understands the internet (and plays netrunner!) so hopefully things will improve soon.

I was in Thirsty Meeples today and someone has left a team covenant virus token there - probably Pete or Seb's they have it behind the counter.

It may be mine; I'm pretty tonk when it comes to remembering to grab stuff like tokens, decks, coats.

I'll grab when next in TM unless someone else does. Of all the TC tokens, the virus token is the design I care for least. It's hard to see and unless one ordered ~20 of 'em they're near darn useless. Seb smashed me with a 21-token Medium dig the other week: who the heck has 21 virus tokens? (Not me: I just shook my head and then shook the hand of my better.)

Dice. That's where it's at so far as virus tokens go.

EvilGaz is NEH. James recently kicked me in the Jacksons with NEH. Becky "Crusher" has long championed NEH.

What better time to jump on the NEH bandwagon? I'm only ~6 months late to the party but hey, I just started growing a hipster beard so that lag time is nothing new.

I will be there this evening packing my trusty Ken deck and a shiny new AstroHub! The future is blue and yellow, I spit it out, in your face, givin' you a taste...

Sob. Why Pete, why?!

I couldn't figure out what deck to build, despite trying. So I brought all the Anarch cards! (And a fair few others.) Hopefully inspiration will strike me before this evening so I can figure out a new Anarch deck.

My three projects are: Incubator (with Hivemind?), Power Nap in MaxX, and Virus Breeding Ground. I want these cards to work so badly. I just can't get a deck (that isn't Seb's one-turn-kill) to function.

If you build a list with Power Nap and MaxX, I'd be interested to have a look. See how it compares to mine. I think it can be pretty good. Xenasis' list for MEGARUN MaxX is hilarious, but I think it's pretty far from finished. I'm wary of combo decks, while there a neat intellectual exercise, I'm not sure it makes for that fun a game. Incubator basically means you're trying to win all at once, I think.
Oh that, don't worry about that, it's my negotiating tank.

Seb was running a very similar list at Reading's Store Tournament several weeks ago - and I'm told it won the Aldershot store tournament piloted by a certain Mr Reid, who was inspired by being utterly demolished by it. ;)

Incubator probably means deep dig. That doesn't mean winning all at once.

LOL my post is gone. Is Roy Keane's smiling mug really that offensive? :lol:

Edited to add back in calling out the awesome Team Norwich community!

In other news we had some visiting NetRunners from Norwich join us in Thirsty Meeples this evening, Hazel and Rufus! Top banana players with great banter and decks. Hazel was handing out sweets and Rufus gave away a spare alt art Chaos Theory ID to one of us that wasn't going to be able to attend an SC. Good stuff Team Norwich!

Nobody does Bayesian statistics and Laplace transforms like you do Brendan! You rock!

Richard Stallman salutes you! At least, he does until you tell us all that you are a vi user.

Top nights running was had by all.

First off big props to the Norwich crew, who showered me in credits, virus's and brain damage and very kindly gave me an alt art CT. Thanks guys you are great.

Highlights of the night included

Medium digging for 4 against Jinteki black tree with no cards in hand hoping to find the winning agenda and not something nasty......and I found an agenda that didn't kill me.

Also watching Hazel trash 5 San San's in one match at over inflated prices, thanks Encryption protocols and interns.

Good luck to everybody for the store champs

Andy

My favourite part of the night (other than Pete's happy smile as he finally, after four scorches, managed to flatline my Quetzal) was running into Komainu with three cards in hand, getting hit by a House of Knives, running into a Komainu, and hitting a Fetal AI and a Shock! with a six Medium dig, and living to tell the tale. Sorry Hazel! It's just I've Had Worse.

I also borrowed Pete's Ken deck and took it for a spin. Man, it's like driving a some sort of fast sports car of popular brand, compared to all these sluggish Shaper and Anarch decks I keep running. It makes me think I should play some Criminal...

I had a stack of sweet moments on the night.

Slamming down a double Account Siphon on Blue Sun to bring Rufus to 1 measly credit felt great and I was all set to hammer the heck out of R&D... until he bounced back an Ice Wall and scored a gestating High Risk Investment in a remote that I was locked out of. My tears flowed, much butthurt.

:lol:

Double Scorching Stuart -- "who the heck splashes Scorch in NBN?!" -- then Chris and then Brendan was sweet. I would've Double Scorched Rufus but he was packing both Plascretes *and* I've Had Worse, hee hee.

Brendan took my Ken deck for a spin -- it was late at night and I just couldn't face the thought of squaring off against his Blue Sun -- and given that he knew my NEH deck was a meat damage machine it was great to see him masterfully play around it, always just staying ahead of the Midseasons.

I also met Chris and Guy properly -- as in, I remembered their names, good times :D

Had a good time too last night getting 6 agenda points against Pete and Guy goes you've only drawn 2 cards so far! Mind you shortly after that comment I got double scorched and was like da fuuuuuuu!!! Serves me right for not ditching those siphon tags. Thought i'd be safe against neh (lesson learned)
Didn't have much luck with Leela.
NEH was standard brutality, well until Pete indexed me then makers eyed me for god knows how many agenda points gg!

Hello.

This is Guy.

I did not know this was here. I do now.

I just want to second/third/fourth the approval of the Norwich visitors. Partly for giving me my first Netrunner victory at Thirsty Meeples with a deck I actually created. Particularly as it was a victory that was presented by the hands of fate on a plate so nicely that those knitting ladies put the knapkin around my neck and cut up the food on the plate as well.

Maker's Eye into Government Contracts and The Cleaners(i think it was the Cleaners, was a 3 pointer in any case). Was horrendously unjust to be on the receiving end I imagine as a double Punitive was there with my name on it. That was also only the second run of the game. And it was a long game.

Thank you all for being so pleasant to a player somewhat below your playing level (never has the word "somewhat" been used quite so generously) & I look forward to further games.

It turns out this Monday is the second of the mini-tournaments Filip promised us. I'm just confirming on Facebook that is the case....
