Australian Nationals Top 8 report

This report comes to us from Shaun “basic.channel” Connor, who’s been playing Netrunner for a comparatively short 8 months but has been grinding JNet into little pieces. As a result of all that practice, here’s his top 8 Nationals report – enjoy. Decklists: Criminally Minded, Jammy HB A quick word on deck choices. I packed Andromeda because…

Meta Snapshot: Long Live the Queen(s)

Blood Money is out and we’re seeing some serious shakeup happening. I’ll say one thing about this cycle so far – whatever you may think of Damon, both 23 Seconds and Blood Money have had strong and immediate impacts on the kind of decks being played. It’s very possible we’re moving away from what we’ll…

Meta Snapshot: Train Heist Simulator 2016

Hello everyone. After months of NBN, IG and Anarch dominance, it’s finally time for a new MWL and FAQ – and this one’s a doozy. It’s been discussed all over the place and I can’t add more to that except for saying I think the Astro errata may yet prove to be a mistake. But…

The Shenanigans Meta Snapshot

I love me some shenanigans in Netrunner. From Team Sponsorship to the glory days of Prepaid Kate, my favorite decks are always the ones that can make something happen out of nothing and win the game with a play the opponent never saw coming. A big chunk of my issues with the game over the…

Viberunner: unlicenced game night enhancement

As some of you know, I have a problem. It haunts me at night, plaguing my dreams. Like many in the Netrunner community, I have a frankly debilitating addiction to totally rad 90s cyberpunk of literally any flavour. So in no particular order, here’s something to spice up your game night with the proper AESTHETICS. Studies…

Competing, burnout and tapping out

So over the last couple of months I’ve become increasingly burned out on Netrunner. Don’t worry, this isn’t another rant about how Faust/IG/NEH/Whizzard/whatever is ruining the game. It’s more just that I’ve played this beautiful game and thought about it more or less non-stop for the last few years, even starting up a blog and trying…

The Meta Snapshot: Industrial Apocalypse

It’s time for the Democracy and Dogma edition of the Meta Snapshot. I’ve held off on this for a while because…well, as it turns out there’s not much to talk about. If you want an idea of what decks are the best, or the most popular, last month’s article will give you almost the same overview….

The Meta Snapshot: March 2016

Hey guys, girls and cyberbeasts – Sneakdoor here with the latest view into what people are playing. Once again, we’re not going to define this by tiers anymore but instead into decks you’re 100% likely to see at a tournament, the current hotness, and meta calls/sideways things you should be aware of. Further note –…

The Meta Snapshot – No More Tiers Edition

Hey guys I’m going to try something a bit different this time. The Snapshot hasn’t been changing quite as much as I was expecting and we tend to see a pretty static group at the top. In particular, NEH Astrobiotics, HB Glacier, Noise and Whiz variants seem to be pretty much superglued into Tier 1….

3 things that are great in Netrunner

Fun thing about online communities – it is literally goddamn impossible to keep everyone happy. We finally get the restricted list? Not good enough! Astro should be a 4/2! Anarchs finally got good, so let’s be mad about Criminal! Anyway, I’m in a good mood and want everyone else to be in a good mood…
