New Zealand 2015 Nationals Report

On the 26th and 27th of September, New Zealand had its third Nationals event with our biggest turnout yet - 27 people. It should be noted that everything up to Universe of Tomorrow was legal for us.

For me, the best part about events like this isn't playing but meeting people that I talk to all year on our awesome Facebook page! I'm pretty stoked with how cool the NZ community is!

The Great Netrunner Alt Art Debate 2015

Just over a year ago I created a survey to settle an argument between me and my friend Divadus.

It was really cool see what people thought so I've decided to do it again!

Fill it out and in a week I'll post the results!

Divadus Rants - Crappy Chrome City Cybernetics

[Warning: Much rage is about to be unleashed in textual format about a highly specific piece of pasteboard. There will be mathematical analysis throughout, but also a lot of subjective disappointment and considerable butthurt. Continue at your own risk. Also, the furious affectations donned by the author may be a teensy bit exaggerated. Just a smidgen. Kthx.]

It's been a long time - I shouldn'ta left you... without a strong rhyme to step to. So, I have been playing and loving Netrunner recently (I really do intensely adore this game), but a niggling question compelled me to revisit this blog and say my piece about it: How did the ANR design team manage to drop the ball so thoroughly with the cybernetics? More specifically, why is Net-Ready Eyes so good when the other pieces of cybernetic hardware are not? Most specifically, why is Skulljack so phenomenally bad? Before I launch into my full-fledged tirade, I suppose that a bit of a 'current card pool' spiel would be worthwhile at this point:

Discursions with Divadus - The Dark Side of the Moon

Hey y'all - so I have been in a fairly remote geographical location for the past several months with limited internet capabilities. As such, I was unable to provide any sort of update, let alone pack reviews as they arrived (which was my original intent).

Nonetheless, over the past couple months, I did manage to scrawl some thoughts on the latter half of the Lunar Cycle, thanks to text spoilers (bless you, snow-jax). Of note, my thoughts are substantially less organized than last time - these scribblings do not begin to approximate a review, nor are they intended to be any sort of summative statement about the cards discussed. Additionally, I have left certain cards un-addressed, either due to lack of any appreciably interesting thing to say on them, lack of experience/understanding of a new mechanic ushered in (would love to have talked about Leela, but felt I needed some games with her under my belt) or simply lack of time (I've been busy yo), and some of my remarks may betray ignorance of the most current of current spoilers. It just seemed like a shame to let my ramblings go to waste, even though their precise temporal standing, with respect to the present meta, is no longer especially relevant. So yeah, here's to belated housekeeping.

I hope to actually be a little more active on this blog in the coming year, so stay tuned for more (engaging) content.
