Deciding which player will be redeemed from the lower bracket, two worthy opponents battle for a spot at the grand finals table of the 2016 Netrunner U.S. Nationals at Origins Game Fair. Top seed Josh Wilson is back with his butcher-shop Near-Earth Hub, looking to throw the tags at Eric Steiger and his aggressive good-stuff Andromeda.
Game three of the U.S. Nationals at Origins Game Fair brings us a quite unique match-up: second-seed Ben Blum is at the helm of his 7-point Cerebral Imaging combo deck, as Eric Steiger and our favourite ex-ristie, Andromeda, refuses to relent with the hard siphons and accesses. Through the efficiency of discounted doubles, will the accelerated plans of Haas-Bioroid’s cerebral division come to fruition, or will our aggressive criminal runner sap not only credits, but also their minds?
Game two of the U.S. Nationals at Origins Game Fair is another all Ohio affair: top-seed Josh Wilson returns, now piloting his special-tech Faust-dancing Whizzard, as he assaults the servers of Eric Caoili’s super-psi rush Pālanā Foods. A well-walked match-up between two good friends. Let the psi games fly.
After a grueling day of Swiss rounds at the Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio, eight players rise to the top of the 2016 Netrunner U.S. Nationals. After a well deserved night’s rest, day two brings the competitors back together on the convention hall floor, to duke it out for the title of U.S. National Champion.
Game one is a match-up between two fellow Ohioans: top-seed Josh Wilson and his murderous Near-Earth Hub, as he protects his servers from newcomer Michael Kuehm and his unconventionally destructive Kate.
Halfway through the Mumbad Cycle, it is not only the runners of the Indian Union who have got their hands dirty in politics. Join Patrick, Benoit and Andrej as they explore the corporation’s half of Democracy and Dogma.
The third datapack of the Mumbad Cycle sees the runners of the Indian Union brokering valuable information, fighting for clone equality, and seeking political immunity. Join Patrick, Benoit and Andrej as they unwrap the runner’s half of Democracy and Dogma.
Going the distance from losers’ bracket, Nadim and his old-school yet post-most-wanted-list Kate face-off against Alex and his Kala Ghoda Near-Earth Hub. With the Store Championship title and a very useful first-round Regional bye on the line, victory comes down to a single game.
After five full rounds of Swiss and a top eight double-elimination, we are left with two title contenders: Ottawa’s illustrious Alex, and Montréal mainstay Nadim. Can Nadim’s hyper-fast-advance Near-Earth Hub go the distance, as he claws his way back from losers’ bracket? Or will the disruption of Noise prove to be too much for the horizontal servers of our favourite lunar broadcast center?
With the fifth and final round of Swiss coming to an end, top table is once again a heated battle between ornery Anarchs and the savvy investors of the Weyland Consortium. Ottawa’s world-class Alex sets off to disassemble Andrej’s financially minded Titan, though the virus power of our core-set staple, Noise. Cache versus cash.
The aggressive Anarchs continue to make a stand at the top tables of the MultiZone Store Championship, using their hateful means to pummel the not so sure-footed corporations. Can Ottawa ambassador Hany and his Keyhole Reina disassemble the business minded investors of Weyland subsidiary Titan Transnational, as piloted by Métropole Grid’s own Andrej?
