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?
Now at the oh-so secluded top table, game three of the MultiZone Store Championship pairs my very own aggressive Eater MaxX deck against Montréal stalwart Roberto and his fast-as-ever Team Turtles Near-Earth Hub (go Outlaws, go!). With a bit of support from MaxX’s hacktivist contacts, can our favourite Anarch bring down the overwhelming expansion of NBN’s lunar broadcast station?
With the new tournament rules freshly in place (3.0.2), the crew from Montréal piles into a fleet of cars and drives on down to Gatineau to get their first taste of post-Most Wanted List action. The stiff competition from the Ottawa region seems irrelevant as two Montréalers, Vincent and Andrej, face off in their first game of the day. Can tag-me MaxX hold her own against a very fast tag-you SYNC?
Deep inside the lunar power plant, a security console jumps to life. “Code red threat,” it warns, “Security protocols under attack!” Ms. Diego cracks a slow smile, “Red? Looks like our old friend is walking free once again.” Simone calmly sets down her warm mug of YucaBean and fires up the main power display. “All generators at full power!” she orders into the comms unit, “Initiate the security AIs!” Simone leans back at her security station as the entire complex begins to emit a soft and soothing hum, “It’s about time the Queen learned the true meaning of ‘Unlimited Power’.”
Winter Kit season is upon us, as the runners and corps of Montréal prepare their finest (and ‘funnest’), as they battle for shiny new Corroders and a gorgeous punk rock playmat! Game one brings Jerome’s incredibly brutal Valencia Vamp-Mill, as she twists the arm of my very own glaciery Blue Sun deck. With D4V1Ds and Blackmails at Val’s disposal, can the lunar power giant even protect themselves from her prying and investigative eyes?
The final game of BD Cosmos’ third summer kit has the Angel of Cayambe investigating the ever expanding servers of NBN’s broadcast center, the Near-Earth Hub. The pressure is on as Valencia sets up her network of public access terminals and unsuspecting patsies, in her attempt to establish the infamous and deadly ‘backwards connection’. Can the productive minds at NBN push out the news fast enough, or will they find their servers helplessly leaking invaluable information?
The third BD Cosmos Summer Kit of 2015 brings us our third match-up between our tried and true staple Shaper, Kate McCaffrey, and the influence flush financial branch of the Weyland Consortium, Titan Transnational. Will the hyper-aggressive expansions of our Titans in teal be any match for the unrivaled economy and multi-access of the tenacious Shaper? Anything worth doing is worth doing three times.
A smile crept across MaxX’s face. Job well done. Somewhere in a cushy office deep in the Hub, an NBN sysop was shitting themselves. Going to have a lot of explaining to do. MaxX tossed her name badge across the room. Pleased, but not satisfied. Still hungry. Damage to be done. According to her contacts, the ‘good’ people at Haas Bioroid had started expanding into the agro-sector. Greedy. Her virtual lectures could wait. A shiny can of Diesel. And we were off.
Déja vu? The digital tinkerer returns as Kate sets her eyes on the plentiful servers of Weyland subsidiary, Titan Transnational. It seems this time that Titan has made some wise investments into Haas Bioroid efficiency procedures. How fast can we go? Are some new imported tricks any match for the unrelenting R&D pressure from our familiar Shaper friend? Anything worth doing is worth doing twice. Maybe even three times.
