Netrunner Regional Analysis

What a phenomenal event. A huge thank you goes out to everyone who made our Regional a smashing success, especially those who drove many miles to do so. We could not have been happier with the positive energy in the place. The Netrunner community is always impressive.

We had a total of 58 participants in the tournament after the smoke cleared.  Supreme congratulations to Pacer Stringfellow, who won the day with Noise and Replicating Perfection by defeating Ahmed Abassi (Kate, RP) in the finals. One thing is for sure – Georgia brought the heat on this day.

Here is the faction breakdown.


Shapers ran the day, with 10 Kates, 6 Kits, 5 Hayleys, 2 Chaos Theorys, and 1 Nasir. Anarchs were right behind them, with 4 Noise, 4 Whizzard, 3 Reina, 3 Valencia, 2 MaxX, 2 Quetzal, and 1 Kim. In a wild phenomenon that has never been observed before, Criminals had the weakest showing, with 8 Andromeda and 7 Leela.

This Regional was the story of Replicating Perfection. Jinteki easily takes the most-represented title, with 15 Replicating Perfection (over 25% of the field), 3 Personal Evolution, 2 Tennin, and 2 Biotech. Haas-Bioroid followed with 11 Engineering the Future, 2 Foundry, and 1 NEXT Design. NBN and Weyland tie for least-represented, with 7 Near-Earth Hub and 4 Making News for the former and 6 Blue Sun, 2 Gagarin, 2 Building a Better World, and 1 Argus Security for the latter.

After the Top 8, Shaper and Jinteki were the star performers!

Our Top 8 competitors were running the following lists:

Ahmed Abbasi – Kate / Replicating Perfection
Zach Bunn – Kit / Near-Earth Hub
Sean Pacer Stringfellow –  Noise / Replicating Perfection
Ross Freitag – Kate / Replicating Perfection
Ben Torrell – Hayley / Near Earth Hub
Sasha Friedman – Andromeda / Engineering the Future
Sam Suied – Reina / Replicating Perfection
Adam Roach – Leela / Replicating Perfection

If you would like to be surprised when we post our coverage of this event on YouTube, hide your eyes! Otherwise, take a look at the tough journey of these competitors through the bracket.

*Resolved Bracket*

Ahmed faced off against his meta-mate, Sean Pacer Stringfellow and lost to a well-oiled Noise deck! Mark one win for the Anarchs this season.

Productions of most of these games, as well as our post-game with Pacer, are in the pipeline.  Thank you again to everyone who spent Saturday with us playing one of the greatest games ever created. Keep an eye on our live stream this weekend for our X-Wing Regional, and catch our weekly Netrunner nights every Wednesday at 6:30 CDT!


Netrunner March Monthly

A series of random events created an influx of Netrunner content this past month, so here it is before we get to the Netrunner and X-Wing Regional footage! Other Regionals are coming over the next few months.

From the archive, we pick this series up on the second game, with Chris being up 1-0. Bradly is playing for a shot at the true finals, but will Near Earth Hub have what it takes to keep Reina Roja out of the game?

With the series at 1-1, Chris takes on Bradly’s Near Earth Hub a second time. It all comes down to this – it is up to Reina to pull it off!

Our Netrunner Store Championship

Jeremy and Sasha clash at the top of the bracket with the winner moving to the Finals. It’s Kit “Rielle” Peddler sifting through the servers at Engineering the Future – will she find what she needs in time? Direct from Tulsa, OK.

Data Tokens & Click Trackers

After a close first game, Sasha faces Ryan for a spot in the Finals. Stealth Andy has been strong this season, but will it be enough to overcome the static economy advantage of Engineering the Future?

It’s the finals, where Jeremy and Sasha meet once again. Jeremy only needs one win to take it home, and his Grail Replicating Perfection has been on fire. It’s up to Sasha’s Andromeda to keep hope alive.

It’s the comeback story of the century. Can Jeremy’s Kit finally put Sasha to rest? After a close first encounter, this final game is sure to be a stormer.

Tim’s Decks
Steven’s Decks
The Data Tokens They’re Using 

First up, Tim’s Gagarin v. Steven’s Edward Kim!

It’s the second game of Order & Chaos Fight Night, and this time Tim’s Edward Kim stares down Steven’s Gagarin. Will there be enough barriers in Kim’s way to keep him from finding Weyland’s true agenda?

Down 0-2, Steven attempts to claw his way back into the series with Maxx, but Tim’s Argus Security is prepared for the infiltration!

Tim’s MaxX takes a peek at Steven’s Argus Security. Will she destroy the servers before her apartment blows up?

It’s all tied up moving into the final games of the series! Tim’s Titan Transnational claims to provide The Way Forward, but Steven’s Valencia is determined to expose the secrets within.

It’s 3-2 in Steven’s favor! Can his Titan Transnational defeat Tim’s Valencia deck to clench the series? It’s one of the craziest games yet!

Tim and Steven are completely tied, on their way to a critical Game 7! Steven chooses Anatomy Maxx while Tim plays Gagarin. Join them for the final match and an extended Order & Chaos dialogue.

Upcoming Releases: Holiday Promotions, Wave 5, Blackmane, and More

It’s an amazing time for all of these games! Rejoice!

Last week we received Celebrimbor’s Secret, a beautiful new pack for Lord of the Rings, as well as All That Remains, the critically important “dog breaker” pack for Netrunner!

Next week we’re expecting Wave 5 for X-Wing, and everyone reading this should know how wild that’s going to be. Howl of Blackmane for Conquest is also arriving, with a new Warlord that might actually knock Sicarius out of the top (let’s hope). And New Town, New Rules, the first saddlebag for Doomtown, is on its way, with a much-needed injection of new cards for every faction!

In addition to all of these holiday-timed goodies, we’re upping the ante with lower prices on all of our non-preorder, non-custom items, and offering free shipping on most orders over $125.

Text can only do so much, so let Robert’s dulcet tones give you the full scoop.
