Reading....Rhyme with good spanking :shock:

Really nice people there, well organised, could see couple of strong decks and felt the pain within.

Hopefully I've learnt many things and could receive some good pointers from my fellow netrunner player. So, yesterday night, I've been blessed by the heavens and experienced enlightment...

Brand new deck was born... With a first name on Null's MWL... PETE was engraved on it. :twisted:

I look for players in midweek too ! Once a week is definitely not enough to satisfy my greed about netrunner.

Let me know where and when :twisted:

Pete... I'm ready for tonight.. you will realise soon that you are the past and I am the future (perfect) :ugeek:

In other news that ain't trash talkin', I watched Phil playing some flavour of CtM last night. This is not a comment on Phil -- who played well and won -- just a question from me: is playing CtM fun? It didn't look all that fun to me: there was no humming of the Jurassic Park theme song so that's a big flag straight off, but more pointedly there wasn't a lot of that bluffy-interplay that I associate with fun NetRunner play. (Totes my bias there.)

Run once / trash an asset / clear the tag / stay above 8 credits seemed to be the order of play for the Runner. On the Corp side the play seemed to revolve around Breaking News / EoI plays with HHN to slow the tempo. From the perspective of an outsider looking in, it seemed like the Corp deck somewhat played itself. Just what are the key decision points when playing CtM that make it engaging and fun?

I'm going to bring CtM next week: maybe I need to play as it to fully grok the wild tsunami ride of awesome play experience it provokes. What are your experiences?

CtM is an awful lot more interesting an engaging than previous asset spam decks - when the games are close.

But the games are often not close. If the corp gets a really strong start - a couple of political assets and a money card turn 1, for instance - it can snowball out of control very quickly. Likewise, if a fast Criminal deck gets set up and stomps every asset every turn, it can be very hard to CtM to recover even with a Closed Accounts play. Likewise if an Anarch deck finds their Slums/Scrubbers/Employee Strike early. There's very little counter play available.

There's little room for bluffing - that's true. Most of what it comes down to is the gamble on HHN in hand or not, or is that first advanced thing in the remote a Breaking News (gotta steal it!) or a GFI (phh, let them score it).

Key decision points though - it's a rush deck, with relatively little ice. That makes ice placement extremely critical for CtM (sometimes it's better to hold ice than play it in the wrong place, even with so little ice), and decisions about what you can push out of the remote and how quickly are pretty important. It rewards good decision making pretty well. There are also fewer HHN in the deck than you'd think. Deciding when to play those is pretty key.

Cheers Brendan!

I have a timing question. I have scored a Nisei. I have not spent the token. I have a Lotus Field over a remote. The Runner has Eater. The Runner plays Spooned. Is there a window for me to spend the Nisei token and end the run before the encounter with the ICE?

It's appalling that I don't know this. I could look it up but I spend my days doing detailed work and I like to cut loose when it comes to NetRunner. (And evening pursuits in general.)

I plan to go to Aldershot GNK this Saturday. I shall be going via North Camp station where an Aldershottian will kindly collect me. He is happy for any others to go (up to the car limit of spaces!)

Tris is coming tomorrow as well so there should be at least 4 of us. Anyone else planning on swinging by?
