    I appreciate the art-name-ability synergy on False Flag. Government Takeover soon, indeed!

    Yay Hippo! Art is kinda boring, though?

    Diversion of Funds is a "fair" Account Siphon?

    not having a remove from game clause seems not good to me as it's not that less efficient (if you clear tags it's only 1 less value)

    Lol at people saying it's not going to be splashed though.

    it nets you 4c for a 9c swing (since it costs 1c) and costs you an extra click. Old siphon, if you cleared tags, would net you 6c but cost 1 more click. So they're kind of about the same, really

  • CerberusCerberus Registered User regular
    One of the main differences will be playing multiple in the same turn is harder because it is a double, so no siphon, SOT siphon etc. It giving you less money and no tags matters as tag me builds that chained attacks on that money are impacted.

    The game needed a denial card and this seems sensible.

    Also Diversion into Mining Accident is still a thing that can happen. It will be nice for people to feel like they have to actually ice HQ against Criminal turn 1 again.

    Won a Store Championship today! Only 5 people and 3 rounds, no cut, and I got the bye first round.

    Beat a Mopus Ayla and a Clan Vengeance Quetzal (secret tech: Corporate Defector and Bug!) with my Temples NEH, and beat a Brain Rewiring CI and lost to a MCAAP IG deck with Seamus-style Good Stuff Valencia. Swapping Film Critic for Employee Strike directly lost me the game against the IG deck and directly won me the game against the CI deck (three chances to steal the winning TFP off the top deck and failing every psi game).

    Well. That was an event.

    Had an honest to god Tie (harmony medtech + employee strike for the win), and then had a long time player and close friend go on tilt at a newer player. I should've done more as TO to defuse the situation, but I felt caught between my friendship and my responsibilities.

    I can't believe it's actually a reasonable decision to be taking Adam to a store championship this weekend.

    Playing on jnet has moved seeing Adam from the new fun to eliciting a sigh: another runner that crushes remotes and hq and makes you feel bad for playing a non CI corp.

    Oh wow, I've never seen this tool before for running tournaments.

    Anything that actually lets you post pairings on a website is a good idea in my book.

    I used that at the recommendation of the facebook group "FFG tournament organizers and judges" or something like that. Worked like a dream, even when I ran into that weird tie situation.

    Went to a store championship yesterday, it's the first time I've played since Worlds.
    Numbers were down from last year, only 15 people where we had 35 last year.
    I ended up winning, beating my apprentice in the final.
    I was playing Apocalypse Val and PU

    I've been playing online now and then and played at a GNK or month or two back. I am really enjoying the game again but my local shop isn't running a netrunner night anymore. There are others within driving distance though, just harder to make it out to them.

    Not a fan of the return of Rumor Mill, even if it maybe won't see much play.

    Mom was a lot of what made rewiring combo oppressive, giving them the time to drop it.

  • PMAversPMAvers Registered User regular
    I can go either way on Rumor Mill, since now if they're slotting it that means they're actually now missing out on all the other powerful stuff. They've gotta make a choice, unlike before where they'd just slam it into everything under the sun.

    Plus it might dissuade people from going for a UVLC/Stinson combo.

    Restricted makes the Rumor Mill decision a bit more interesting, but the existence - rather the possibility - of the card being in the meta means that glacier-type archetypes can't ever become good, because people will slot Rumor Mill as soon as they do and then Rumor Mill --> Stimhack their way into the remote all day.

    I'm pretty horrible at meta predictions, but it seems to me that Reg Anarch is the clear best overall runner deck now (if it wasn't already) as Tapwrm going on restricted really hurts most Hayley decks, and what corp decks are good against that? Glacier is out because of the above, so maybe PU or the Biotech Urban Renewal variant? Not the most fun meta there.

    But I hope I'm wrong. I usually am :)

  • CerberusCerberus Registered User regular
    In some ways it is like kill protection, you don't want to include it, normally because of slots, but in this case because you give up another powerful card. But if the top decks are kill or glacier you have something you can include. Ultimately it makes your deck worse but sometimes it's worth the hit.

    Glacier seems to be on the rise again due to Jinja City Grid at least, and that doesn't give a eff about Rumor Mill. They can set up some disgusting remotes if they feel like it.

    Speaking of fun stuff, possible text spoilers from Council?
    YES WHITE HAT YEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS

    Also I look forward to building a 24/7 Armed Intimidation deck. :D

    I'm currently actively playing Netrunner, Star Wars Destiny, Lord of the Rings and Arkham Horror. I've got a full collection of Game of Thrones that never gets played, and the same for Doomtown Reloaded.

    My problem is that Netrunner is too good and I'd almost always rather be playing that.
