The Tournament Journey Pt 4 (Regionals)

Site Article: http://netrunners.co.uk/articles/the-to ... art-4.html

Once more unto the breach dear Netrunners! After yesterdays (belated) Chronos Tour report, I have been far more efficient at uploading yet another sterling article by Dave on the Cardiff Regionals!

It was a tremendous event, and congratulations go out to Tim and Dave for qualifying for nationals next week!

Super stuff, thanks for posting these Dave. Thanks also for the commentary and attendant write-ups. As a new~ish player it's so valuable to grok the "why" behind this or that play.

Ollie schooled me to over a couple of games at last Thursday's Oxford meetup. I'd not encountered the card in play before, and he was able to smoke my asset-based HB economy with impunity.

Security Testing means it is essential to Ice all servers now. Jinteki RP being the exception as they can get away with not icing remotes if their centrals are taxing enough.

Yeah. I made the mistake of installing my asset economy -- Eve, Adonis, PAD -- into unprotected remote servers while playing Ollie's Ken Tenma and ended up in the unfortunate situation of not being able to provoke a scoring window. Ollie meanwhile was sitting on Security Testing and Magnum Opus, so could afford to sit back while agendas pooled in HQ.

That was my most aggravating game of NetRunner to date: I don't mind losing if the game is fun, but I do mind losing if I play like a $2 chump: installing asset economy into unprotected remotes in the face of Security Testing+Desperado was poor play on my part. I'll have a think about the PADs in my deck, might swap 'em out for something else.

It was definitely Andy's day in Cardiff! Mine also only lost one game all day, and it was my Corp deck's vulnerability to her that hurt me. For comparison, here's my version:

Shaper: 4

Only real difference from Tim's is I went for Same Old Things and he went for Faeries and an extra security testing. We'd decided that it was worth dropping extra corroders/yogs/mimics and using central only breakers as backup in order to fit Parasites and RDI in the deck at the same time. There seems to be an event missing from the list Tim posted (it says 19 but lists 18) but I think it's a single Planned Assault like mine.

Edit: turns out it was actually a 3rd Emergency Shutdown in Tim's deck, which makes sense with no Same old Things.
