Let’s review how our competitors got here.
From the Genesis cycle, please welcome Salvage! It’s an impressive feat for such an old card to make it this far since you would expect the designers to be more conservative as time goes on to avoid power creep, perhaps? Salvage had an easy win over Net Police which was struggling in the wake of the NBN big box making it look more useful than normal. Next it faced newcomer Test Ground which won by the biggest margin in round 1 but then lost by the biggest margin in round 2. The third round was very exciting with a last minute upset over the highly controversial Toshiyuki Sakai with only 2 votes making the difference. Can Salvage go all the way?
From the Spin cycle, please welcome Record Reconstructor! RR arguably has an even more unique effect than Salvage which goes to show that uniqueness is not a trait that will hold you back in this competition. It is also somewhat of a port from the original Richard Garfield-created Netrunner where it was once again considered to be one of the most useless cards in the game. It started this competition with an easy win over Neotokyo Grid despite some people having pegged that card to be one of the top seeds. It took out Disrupter in the second round which was suffering from NBN big box shock. It was the only runner card to make it to round 3 where it defeated what we might now consider to be the second most useless ICE in the game, Zed 1.0, by 5 votes. Can this runner card reign supreme?
Reminder: vote for which card you think is worse.
