This entirely. Heathstone is eating up a bunch of the top players from Netrunner as there is just so much money in that community.
I am a upper middle rank player and I can clear $200-300 a month with some weekend tournaments on Heathstone.

The "No money in my card game" crowd needs to STF up and stop whiting about how much they hate money players. It becomes harder and harder for me to invest time and money into Netrunner when there is little to gain from it compared to other card games.

Do you win Regional, Nationals, or Worlds? If not this has no effect on you. It'd be a move to bring the upper 1% of players into the game.
If you get the top players their fans come with them, They start doing big streams (There are streams of MTG Online that have 20k views a night), that brings more players and more money into the game.
It is a good move for the community, the company, and the game.

Yes you will get a few annoying "money" players but a few bad apples does not mean you need to let the entire community suffer under shitty prizes and lack luster tournaments.
I have broke the top 10 for Worlds and Nationals 3 years in a row (three times at Gencon and twice at Worlds). The only reason I even play in those is that I already go to Gencon for other things and I live a short walk from the FFG Event center.
If I had to go out of my way at all to play in those tournaments I'd skip it as the events are run like shit and the prizes are awful. They need to bring money into the game to make it better, it is a fact. Till they do it will just be another random card game that people will float in and out of while taking a break from the big ones.

Currently the only prizes are Promos that all players at an event get (Worlds promos are worth about $50ish a pop), Playmats for people who make the top cut (mostly worthless), and a shitty trophy for first place at major events.

You get to give the basic idea of a card. From what Jeremy has said they really limited his options for designing his card and that is why he quit Netrunner for Warhammer 40k Conquest this year. He took first place there as well.

Their idea is to make big tournaments "fun" and don't want the LCGs to be competitive. Worlds is run like shit and like I said I'd not go if was not held at the play I normally play anyways, I just show up for my tournament and then walk home.

>>36267033
Eli is SELLING for about $90. People are asking for $200 but they are not selling for that. Prof Contacts is going for about $50 (already sold mine) and the prices are already dropping as people are dumping them to recoup something from this years awful worlds.

Anyways Worlds is crap and run like shit, FFG has no idea what they are doing, and more or less have no idea how to run a big competitive game. They need to hire Star City Games to consult for them and show them how to set up real events.

There is no point for it outside of the fun of the tournament. Only the tournament was run like shit, the judges did not know the rules at all, there was nothing to do during the massive amount of down time, it was in the middle of fucking Minnesota in the winter, the location was way too small for the number of events they had going on, the cut for netrunner was way too small (18 people cut for 268 players), Netrunner it's self is a really RNG game at tournaments so it is hard to even claim world champion from a single event, etc.

I blew about 2k over the week of Worlds and I'd take it all back if I was able, I even made the cut but it was no fun and entire pointless over all. Compared to a high level magic event it was one of the worst things I have ever gone too.

Zwirn is notorious for jumping onto the new game and win them before people understand the basics of the game. I'm a competetive Thrones player and can refer to plenty of champions who've pretty much got to design whatever card they'd like.

You know Ebay takes a huge chunk of that. Plus those are rare examples, check the main card selling/trading sites where most the selling goes on. Ebay is a crap shoot and most the time you have to relist a card 5-6 times to get a sell on it. The real value of Eli 1.0 right now is about $90.

That's a pretty small addition to the prize pool, but you're right; It would be neat. However, the shipping costs etc. for FFG would be more trouble than it's worth. The packs from 1 cycle would cost 90 dollars, so adding a 100 dollar cash prize would be better.

It was not hard to make the cut. Just play NEH and not get RNG fucked. Odds are you will lose 1 Corp game at most as long as you know the deck style well. On Runner just go cheap runs and aggression to beat speed. You lose to Jinteki RP but you win maybe 25% of the time VS NEH and that is all you need, just get lucky and be matched up VS them the most.

Same with Hearthstone, yes it is not as deep as Netrunner but that does not make it any worse of a game.
Also on prizes Blizzard supports it's community with prizes and cool shit, FFG sells tournament packs and gives nothing away to the community.

And you know what? I agree with you. FFG's handling of their runaway card game is poor. If it's not Star Wars miniatures, it doesn't exist and it's only a pet project to diversify their portfolio. This needs to change.

The problem for FFG is a steep one, and I wish them luck. They entered the market directly opposing all of the things players are now asking for. They have too many games, and try too hard to treat them equally. If ANR suddenly got a prize pool, AGoT would want one. Star Wars would want one. It would discourage people from getting into their new ventures if they based prize pool on popularity. It would piss people off if they offered prizes as an opening act, only to pull back if their new games don't take off.

The problem presented before FFG is a massive one. We're asking for their money, time, and work hours, for nothing in return.

For me, I'm going to repeat what I said last time about Cyber Threat: It's mostly a Reina/Caissa card for me for now, if you're well positioned, it allows you to do things without having to move cards around, and any click gained is worth it.

Most of the time though, just *running* plain and simple, is going to amount to the same. So it's ahrd to find space for the card.

I like it in combo with False Echo: rez that ICE for the Reina + Rook tax and become unable to protect your other servers, or don't and let me run free, and take that ICE back in your hand, leaving that server unprotected.

If huge hand size shenanigans ever actually become a thing, they already have their built-in counters in Psychic Field, Sweeps Week, and Komainu. Not to mention softer counters like Power Shutdown to take out Origami, Snatch and Grab for Theophilius, and (indirectly) Shattered Remains or Taurus for Ekomind.
>I Duggars and keep everything
>Ok, Sweeps for 14.

Anyway, personally I think it's good for the game to have the "fuck your Scorch/Ronin, I have 15 cards in hand" approach to mitigating the effect of damage.

Wow that is a bunch of rage both ways on the money debate.

I think my biggest issue on all this is that Netrunner and aGoT used to have money tournaments back when they used to be CCGs. Netrunner still had them up till the release of Android: Netrunner. FFG just went in and sucked the community structures and dried up all the money.
aGoT used to have a great judge system and a bunch of community events going on all the time. When FFG released the LCG version they killed all that, shut down a bunch of community sites, and all around bullied the community into towing the line.

FFG is a really awful company that just happens to get their hands on really good games. They kill old communities to push their new vision.

Cant speak about AGoT, but as far as Netrunner is concerned, they resurrected the community, which for the most part was either dead, or buried deep underground.

And I would argue both the CCG format and the competitive scene hat killed it in the first place the first time around, so seeing those things being messed with I see as a positive.

I'd say they didn't go far enough even on some respects (the LCG format).

There is the word "prevent".

With Data Raven, you take a tag to be allowed to continue your run. It's a conditional ability.
With Snatch and Grab you take a take to *prevent* something from happening.

Hence why it is considered a cost I guess. Not to mention, prevent/avoid effect are considered their own thing in the rules.

Mostly use programs when they are useful and toss them when they are not anymore. Earthrise Hotel makes the deck work really, You want to try to get one early as you can.
Most turns you just see what is in your hand that is the most damaging to the current board state and go with it, If you can Keyhole hammer then do it, if you can drop a Nerve Agent, Incubator it to max hand size, and run on HQ then do it. It is a million janky tricks that turn into a huge puzzle to solve each turn.

>>36283463
Incubator is one of the first cards I fetch most games honestly. It puts so much pressure on the table state.

Most people that know my deck won't let it get past 4 counters, you just can't give me a chance to pull a 5+ card R&D run with Medium, Accuses your entire hand in one go, or if you have both locked down bring out a Hemorrhage and make you discard 2-3 cards.
Incubator + Datasucker means no ICE is save from Parasite if I really need to kill it.

It is up there with Keyhole for best card in the game IMO. Even if you don't manage to combo it off with something forcing the Corp to more or less skip a turn each 3-4 turns has a huge effect on slowing the game down. That has been the main way I beat NEH really. If they don't clear it then I hit them for massive dig runs (My best being pop SMC for Medium, put 4 counters on it, run for 5 cards, Keyhole run to shuffle, run for 6 cards and win.) or clean agendas out of their hand during my Keyhole assault so I don;t have to worry about chaining as much.

Here is your counter to Jinteki RP.
Run Woman in the Red Dress, Fill up Corp hand with Agendas, run HQ Interface and Leg Work, Steal Agenda from HQ, her trigger happens right away while still pulling cards, bounce advanced Agenda from the table into hand, access that as well and steal it.

Her ability is insanely powerful when used right. If we get more ways to force Corp draws she will get even better. The more Agendas in HQ the less safe ones on the table get.

I am a playtester with PDFs of all of Oder and Chaos, Sansan Cycle, and the final test versions of the NBN Big Box.

I know there was major back lash to the last playtester that leaked but shit feels so slow around here and there is so much shit to talk about coming up.

So I will ask the Fa/tg/uys, Do you want me to leak them? I can scrub all the data that can trace back to me easily and just upload them here so they are not traceable to me, so I am not scared of FFG coming after me.
The version I have are full card images so they can also be ported into OCTGN so we can be a fair bit ahead on there for more fun for online play.

Funny, I feel the opposite. Datapacks coming once a month gives time to look at each of the 20 new cards. If you dump a shitload of cards all at once, tons of cards are going to get overlooked because there's a few clearly powerful cards stealing all the attention.

You're just going to ruin the fun of discovering new cards 8 months in advance, and FFG dropping the idea of external playtesting.

I have to agree. Presenting everything at once means lots of potential cards will be ignored for highlights, while getting them slowly forces people to think through what the current card pool offers and makes the game more fun for that.

Also, playtesting needs to be somewhere that cards can be tried without the whole community knowing. I'm just fine with seeing them after the fact (I did post >>36285004 and >>36285051), but those early attempts can't be made if angry neckbeards can bitch about every poor wording before they get out of the gate.

i think it's going to take a LOT to get people to spend slots on a card like snatch and grab when corps are so strong right now as is. It seems like instead of trying to kill KJ, corps are just trying to (and succeeding at) outracing her.

other big resource econ cards, like daily casts, armitage, and even liberated are not connections, so snatch and grab can't trash them.

maybe if bigger/better connections are introduced down the road. it hurts crims the most, since they rely on both mr. li and KJ. snatch and grab might be good in weyland TnB to try and take care of that matchup
