The finale of two days of Netrunning brings two Canadian players to the final showdown at the 2016 Canadian Nationals. Métropole’s own Andrej Gomizelj set his tag-me Eater Whizzard on the far-stretching servers of Alex Bradley’s imposing Controlling the Message. Will the Whiz be able to dish out his typical Anarch destruction, or will CTM’s relaxing virtual tours buy Alex a shot at game two?

After a decisive victory at the final table, lower bracket’s Josh Wilson pushes the series on to a second grand final game, as he now prepares for an attack on the servers of meta-mate and friend Eric Caoili’s rushing Pālanā Foods. A repeat of an earlier match-up in the top eight, in which Eric triumphed in knocking Josh down to the lower bracket, serves to give both players a sense of foreboding familiarity and an understanding of what must be done. Which of these two chummy Ohioans will prevail, and snatch the title of 2016 U.S. National Champion?
After an exciting top 8 double elimination tournament at the U.S. Nationals at Origins Game Fair, only two players are left sitting, now at the final table. These two friends from Ohio, upper bracket’s Eric Caoili, piloting his Wyldside Whizzard, and lower bracket finalist Josh Wilson, at the helm of his murderous Near-Earth Hub, must now face off once again, for the title of 2016 U.S. National Champion. Can Eric grab that shiny trophy with a single runner win, or will Josh be able to bring us to a second game?
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.
Data and Destiny is out and upon us here in Montréal! On the corp side, the brand new deluxe expansion happily brings oh so many new tricks and tools to our favourite information company, NBN. Can the aggressive running of the Anarch e-thlete Whizzard do substantial damage to SYNC, NBN’s new orbital data network, boasting the largest thoroughfare of information this side of the moon? Or will the Whiz simply end up tagged, and preyed on by clever ‘marketing’? After months of bated breath, we are finally ready to see how this little blue box will shake up the meta. And what a way to start!
