NRUK Octgn League - Season 1

Postby king_mob » Tue Mar 24, 2015 3:17 pm

Season 1 of the netrunners.co.uk octgn league is now live! The season is set to run from 22/03/2015 to 18/04/2015.

Link to the challenge board: http://www.challengeboards.net/boards/standings/3212
Password to join up is: nruk5398

How league play works:
- The league runs in seasons of around 4 weeks.
- Each week is a "round".
- You can play anyone else on the challengeboard during this round.
- To count a game towards your score on the board, you and your opponent must play one full match (playing both as corp and runner).
- You can play the same opponent multiple times during a round, however you can only submit one match for the purposes of scoring. Both you and your opponent should agree on which match is submitted.
- The winner of each game in the match submits a win on a the board. So, if you split, one of you submits a win and so does the other. If you win both games, you submit 2 wins. The loser doesn't have to submit anything.
- Please identify your Octgn matches with the prefix [NRUK], however be sure to agree with your opponent before hand before you allow spectators to your game. It's unlikely anyone will mind but be courteous all the same.
- All card sets that are defined in the current release of the A:NR plugin for Octgn are legal. At this point this includes all cards up to Order & Chaos.
You can find out which card sets have been added to the plugin by checking the changelog: https://github.com/db0/Android-Netrunne ... angelog.md
- Switching up the decks you use often is actively encouraged. Match reports are also encouraged.
- To help with organizing matches, please feel free to use this stick thread, or preferably PM your opponent, alternatively simply contact them on Octgn via the built-in chat.

New players are welcome, if you are new to the Octgn interface i recommend the following resources:

I'm happy to follow what the group wants in this case. When seems like a good time for everyone?

I'm tempted to say as soon as the A:NR plugin for Octgn gets updated with the new definition, FYI you can keep an eye on this here: https://github.com/db0/Android-Netrunne ... angelog.md

When The Valley is included, i was thinking of simply asking the group again if you are all happy for the cards to go legal, or if you would prefer to wait until the season/round ends.

I don't know how many games I'll get, but I'd like to be a part of this. I'm MasterAir on challengeboards.net and (I think) masterair on OCTGN. Do we report 2 games to challengeboards.net or 1? If 1, I presume a split is counted as a tie. Cheers for sorting this out king_mob.

I'm inclined to play jank on OCTGN. Accept my apologies in advance.

FWIW I think -Clot-, um I mean The Valley, should be available as soon as it's released on OCTGN. But I'm happy to go with the flow.
Oh that, don't worry about that, it's my negotiating tank.

I'm Kesterer on OCTGN too.

If I'm lucky I might even manage to find time to play a game this week, but sadly this evening is taken up with real-life Dirty Laundry. :(

Is there a way of adding people as friends if they're not online? I'm struggling to get everyone tagged up.

In other news, may well be on later on this evening if anyone's about.

Ill be on later mate. You can search people in the user list and right click "add as friend". This should add them to your friend list when they next login.

Folk didn't seem to be in the list when they weren't online, which was annoying. I'll have another look.

Mandinga, this organising via OCTGN seems a pain in the bum. I'm constantly missing people, or they've just started another game, or I'm hanging around waiting to see if they're there or not - or may turn up.

Is there a better way of getting people's availability? I know there's real life and everything else - but maybe some rough start times or zones or other thing to help organise?

Or is everyone else finding it straightforward and it's just me?

Could we set up a G+ group or community or something?

What's everyone else's experience like?

Yeah fair on octgn is hard to catch people if your not online constantly. Have you tried pm'ing? Im happy to set up a google plus group for it if people will actualy join it, it would give us hangouts as well which could be fun for commentary.

I mention G+ because then there's the option of doing a hangout too if playas want and they can natter to each other too. Definitely not trash talk.

G+ sounds great.
Plus anyone who has Hangouts/Skype/Mumble, depending on time then I may be happy to have voice comms to make things more fluid.

Hi guys, does anyone know who mooseguy and fruitbasket are on the forums? As in those are the league names they are using but i dont recognize them as anyone on the forum. In the interest of fairness id like for people to identify themselves at least in this thread before they start taking part in league matches.

Edit: well actually people dont HAVE to identify themselves, but it would be nice for everyone else in the league if they could challenge other members easily, and be able to actually contact them

Do we still post our results on the same page as before? Nothing changes as a result of it being week 2 does it?

I've applied my games from last night to the same board. I thought it'd be a different one, but that just highlights how new I am to such things!
