    Honestly a lot of these would make excellent mats and/or card sleeves.

    Whatever happened to the netrunner videogame ? I can't find anything more recent then that and there is nothing on the companies website anymore, did it just get cancelled with no announcement?

    So I'm thinking about getting back in with 2.0 now. I'm thinking Kit (my old favorite) Smoke (I've always liked stealth) or Geist (favorite criminal). Is Skorpios popular and does it's existence completely hamstring Geist?

    Geist has disposable breakers and minimal recursion... what is the particular Skorp threat?

    Geist runs recursion, usually in the form of Clone Chip, Levy, and Same Old Thing. Two of Geist's weaknesses, depending on your exact breaker suite, are running out of Crowbars to get through codegates on remotes or running out of Shivs to get through stacked sentries. Skorpios is scary because your crowbars and shivs become one use only.

    Geist does well in this new meta, and is one of the few Criminals who didn't get hamstrung by the removal of Desperado, Account Siphon, and Temujin Contract, since his econ engine is based on trashables and Tech Traders. Usually he'll run a couple of Levy AR Lab Access as his "restricted" card now, but Clone Chip does remain an option. Skorpios can cause him problems, and he definitely has to plan his trashes in advance rather than the 1-2/turn drip that he'd prefer. You're usually playing at least one copy of normal breakers (or some AI - Mammon or Amaukua) though to help.

    Kit and Smoke are both good, solid options right now - honestly, they plus Hayley and Ayla are probably all in the running for best runner period right now. We'll see how Worlds shakes out in a week. Shaper is just in a very good place in the meta right now, with a lot of good tools.

    Now bought up to current.

    Practicing on J.net before a GNK on Saturday. Thinking of playing a version of the Batty Loop deck on NRDB. Just flatlined a runner by Batty'ing them in to Chetana while I had Fumiko rezzed. They lost the psi game and net damage + meat damage off'd them. Very satisfying.

    Bit worried I'm painting myself into a corner for store championship season by playing nothing but Adam decks.

  • CantidoCantido Registered User regular
    Thinking more about FFG going digital and them focusing on new games, not board game translations, I would play the everliving shit out of Android: A Telltale Series.

    There are now four of us in our local meta playing nothing but Adam. Even the ones that make Regionals cuts.

    Send help.

    I'm intrigued, list me.

  • EpimerEpimer Registered User regular
    Variations on "my" GNK list: https://netrunnerdb.com/en/decklist/46403/you-can-keep-your-hat-on-gnk-winning-adam

    Someone was on a slower deck with a full rig and Corporate Defector, but it didn't do well at the GNK so I'd guess he's on a different one now.

    There's also a very very aggro deck, but I'm not sure it's for public consumption as the author is taking it to Worlds.

  • EpimerEpimer Registered User regular
    And I should say that I don't think any of us think Adam's better than the various Shaper decks, it's just that it's been surprisingly strong while also being a ton of fun to play.

    That's a respectable spread for corps, I think. 15% is enough of a market share?

    The minifactions and Crims both seem to be pretty featureless at the moment. Mostly when I look at them I just shrug and think "why bother?". They could use some big, high influence cards.

    It never occurred to me I could shuffle my sleeved cards that way. Everyone I know makes five piles.

    not for the first time, I'm pretty irritated that it takes FFG like two years to print champ cards

    e: actually longer, since we still don't even know what Dan's second card is, do we?

    Well, like ordinary bicycle playing cards.

    My sleeves are shitty KMCs so I'm not trying that any time soon.

    Worth noting that pile shuffling doesn't actually shuffle cards. It's fine if you're doing that in addition to an actual shuffle (mixing the piles together) but just making five piles and then putting them on top of each other is not a shuffle.

    I really suck at riffle shuffling regular decks and am even worse with sleeved cards, but overhand shuffling is pretty easy and with sleeved cards it's nearly as random as a riffle.

  • AnzekayAnzekay Registered User regular
    I pile shuffle to split up clumped cards after a game and then mash shuffle to actually shuffle properly.

    I would riffle if I knew how to but I'm really crap/slow at it, so I mash shuffle instead. Just had to work out a way to do it that doesn't split sleeves.

    I try not to overhand shuffle because mathematically it's actually really really crap, haha, and that bugs me enough that I don't like doing it.

  • admanbadmanb the bored genie Seattle, WARegistered User regular
    Oh yeah when I say "overhand with sleeved cards" I mean mash shuffling. I always forget that has its own term.

  • AnzekayAnzekay Registered User regular
    yeah my method now is to invert my deck so that the bottom of the sleeves is pointing away from me, split the deck, then loosen one half in my hand and mash the other half into it with the side of the deck intersecting the corner of the other half

    minimises the possibility of sleeve damage since the open sides never have any pressure applied to them, and the insertion point being low surface area makes the mash a lot smoother. I can do it about 7 times in 20 seconds at this point, I think.

    Looks like we’re getting the third Kitara pack announced today, Council of the Crest.

    New NBN ID and a couple interesting Crim cards in the link. Also what looks to be the Medium replacement?
