First trip to continental Europe for some beer and food. Also played some Netrunner - what’s with all the NEH?

Great report, thanks for coming. :smiley:
It’s too bad we didn’t face each other, maybe next time. :smile:


#3

You mention playing some sort of Weyland build - what sort of scorch build?

I find your lack of Midseasons disturbing.


#6

Well, noise tends to cut IHW these days, so in theory…

Nice write up, coming to the Dutch nats by any chance?

Edit:

On the RP lack at the continent, I think it’s mainly because it taxes your own brain and everybody expects RP. I for one was exhausted after 13h of RP mirror matches I never played it again after regionals. And we tend to agree with eachother NEH is still stronk


#7

The part about Minh asking where you are from and slapping down a Plascrete was hilariously side-splitting. We even make joke-comments about the English meta here in Texas.


#8

When is the Dutch Nationals? If it’s near Amsterdam, I may even have a place to crash.

I’m interested that “Noise tends to cut IHW” - not seen that much here. Without Plascrete it’s a necessity and it have saved my bacon in many match ups.

Laughed hard with the last pic (“zis is what I think of Arr Pee”).

I would have played RP if I could have made it. One of the few.


#11

so 13th of September it is, and Eindhoven is not really close to A’Dam(2h drive by train I think)

However, the guys from Amsterdam most likely have a free seat in their car


#12

Nice report man, glad we could have you! :smile:

Shame we couldn’t play against each other, maybe in Holland! Congrats on your good performance.

I sure ran against a lot of peoply trying to kill me on the day; and here I thought this community was so gentle and friendly. :stuck_out_tongue:


#13

I’m sure the world’s perception of the UK meta is entirely skewed by @Cerberus’ performance at Worlds last year…
Great report though @evilgaz, I love your cartoon cards.


#14

And also the fact that 6 Agenda Blue Sun kill is far more popular here than anywhere else.


#15

You southerners giving us all a bad name. I’ve never seen anyone play that deck north of Oxford :stuck_out_tongue:

But yeah, between Cerbs Worlds deck and Iain Reid’s SSCI performance it’s no surprise we have a reputation for house-burning.


#16

Played against it at the Sheffield Store Tournament!


#17

Thanks for the report of the Belgian nationals.

For the life of me , i don’t know why everybody here is so bloody in love with NEH and Kate. People have shifted away from RP because of the braindrain in large tournaments , especially with 6 rounds. Blue sun is something that is slowly phasing out in Belgium and no Weyland made it into the top16.
I did love to see 2 JT PE in the top 16. But my own love for JT PE is well known in Belguim and around.

We did however have 46 people , on account off scott , the canadian , showing up and dropping right away. He had only learned of the Nationals after booking his flight, really wanted to join up , but didn’t want to fuck up anybody their SOS by dropping halfway through round 4.
He played against the people with a bye each round until the 4th round.
I didn’t bother registering him in the tournament software if he was going to drop right away, but officially , he did sign up and drop.


#18

I really enjoyed the tournament partly because I met quite a few new people and had a chance to chat with some old friends and adversaries. :stuck_out_tongue:

I really enjoyed playing against you @evilgaz maybe apart from that bloody Snatch and Grab. Luckily, I had another ProCon ready. :smile:


#19

I enjoyed the Corp game! Noise was disappointing. :wink:

I’ll make sure to have a spare Snatch and Grab for next time. :slight_smile:


#20

Even James (The guy who originally built it) has stopped playing it.

My Weyland deck isn’t even that kill-happy.
