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?
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.
MaxX barrels through her apartment door. A tin of YucaBean. Uniform off. Plugged in. Online. Music up, and loud. Good. NBN had been busy, or so she heard. A new orbital network was launched, largest in the system. Zettabytes of traffic. Liked the challenge. MaxX jacked in, narrowing her sights on the nearest relay. A messaged leaped from her rig: she had been located. They knew where she was. MaxX smirked. Good. “Come find me,” she muttered, not fully knowing what she was about to begin.
