This was a special saturday for Croatian Netrunner scene. Special, because the scene itself is very small and very young, but managed to organize its first Regional championship. So far there have only been more casual tournaments, but with help from @Stiv who delivered us some promos, we managed to offer decent prize pools.
Step by step it developed from there on and eventually brought us to Regionals. Beutiful sunny saturday, legions of players coming from all over the world (Ukraine) to Zagreb just to compete, traditional post tourney beer rounds and a lot of fun; basically everything you could wish for.
Event itself had a good variety of identities, and did produce a nice number of different matchups. I believe i was the only stimhacker there so no other celebrities. Atmosphere was very friendly, we had enough time to grab some food between rounds and we were quite happy to see and chat with some guys who were present since A:NR started.
No surprises at results section - Pawnshop Noise and Butchershop NEH took the first place, Andy / Making News just slightly behind, Valencia / ETF got third and Chaos Theory / PE climbed to fourth place.
Thanks to organizers for making the effort; now is time to enjoy the summer, and after this, who knows, Slovakian Nationals are pretty close, and AndroiL:Netrunner bye card could be valid…
