A full day of Swiss rounds narrows the competitive field at the 2016 Canadian Nationals down to eight final players. Those determined eight return for a second day of high-stakes Netrunning, to duke it out for the title of Canadian National Champion.
Game one is a return to core set staples, as Michigan’s Steven Jecmen pilots a sentry-heavy Engineering The Future against Montreal’s Julien Deville and his ‘one-turn-kill’ Kate. Are 14 clicks enough for the inventive Shaper to close out a game, or will the efficiency and speed of the reliable HB power through?
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.
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.
