Living the dream


#646

That’s me! Thanks so much for listening! I’m trying to get back into releasing at least every other week, so there should be another next week.


#647

Don’t know if its living the dream but I found this aesthetically pleasing

If that’s the board state on the scoring remote, I’m taking my ball and going home :slight_smile:


#649

If that’s the board state on the scoring remote I’m winning out of a different server.

Literally any other server will have 0 Caprice and 0 FC3.

he ended up falling on his sword to cobra batty on rnd :stuck_out_tongue:


#651

Sounds more like your sword!

Having a Biotic Labor, Red Planet couriers, two triple advanced Hortums and a Vanity Project. So good :laughing:


#653

That’s the indomitable runner spirit. That we will crush.


#654

Install Cache, and take leave 1 counter on it. Then take that counter during a Cold Read run so that you can feed Cache to Cold Read. Bonus: do it out of Ken.

Playing a second game against a really beefy Weyland Gagarin kill deck. Full of traces, traps, and punitives. The first game I played, I blundered into a Gv’t Takeover and got punitived all over the ground. In our second game, later, I got to a point where I just couldn’t do anything, and the corp put out a naked server. Could be a trap, could be a gv’t takeover to kill me.

Mad dashed it. Gv’t Takeover. :grinning:

Walter: Hi, have a good game
Runner: Likewise

Corp 1: Ice HQ, Ice R&D, Hedge fund
Runner 1: Inject (Paperclip, Paperclip, Black Orchestra, Black Orchestra), install Liberated Accounts, use LA twice

Corp 2: Ark Lockdown Paperclip, Ark Lockdown Black Orchestra, IPO
Runner has left the game

I had the best runner turn of my nearly four years of playing this game last weekend at the Euregio 7 tournament.

I was playing Kit with Study Guide and Multithreaders against a CI glacier with Sandburg. So I am actually quite ok, because at one point, I don’t really care about high str ICE anymore due to a strength-X Study Guide.

Anyway, the following position arose with me on my first click:
HQ was protected by a rezzed Turing, while a single-advanced card was in a remote with 2 unrezzed pieces of ICE and an Upgrade - I was pretty sure it was an agenda + Ash.
While I had some money, it was not enough to beat an Ash-trace, so I needed to get in twice with enough money to trash the Ash on the first run and still enough to be able to get in a second time.
My study guide was already at about strength 5 or so and I had two Multithreaders.
There were no other ICE-breakers and no tutor in hand, so I needed to pull off this:

Click 1: Escher into HQ, swapping the rezzed Turing with the outermost ICE on the remote.
Click 2: Tinkering on the innermost piece of ICE on the remote
Click 3: Stimhack on the remote, having barely enough credits to get in and trash Ash
Click 4: Mad Dash on the remote, stealing a Paper Trail :smiley:

The card that was trashed due to Stimhack damage was luckily not the Mad Dash but a freedom through equality.

While it’s fairly common for my Sunny deck to beat NBN without ever installing a program, and sometimes without installing a Nexus, today I beat a CI + MCA deck without installing a single program or useful hardware (even through a Stinson turn!).

Turning Wheel, Jak Sinclair, Data Folding, and face-checking every bit of expensive ICE he had… trashing 2 MCA, and then Rigged Results to get past the inner Rototurret on HQ for a 6-access 7+ point final turn.

Corp installed a 3rd ICE on HQ in front of Hortum and Colossus.

I was happy, since now my Na’Not’K would not need to spend 3c to boost to get past colossus. I had a gordian blade installed, so a Mausolus wouldn’t be awful to deal with.

I never expected it would be a Hortum.

The corp paid a click and 6c to install and rez an ICE that made it 1c cheaper for me to run on HQ.

I promptly sniped the agenda in HQ for the win.

I was having a brutal battle with a Maxx deck, playing my Skorpios.

I had shot most of her breakers, but she’d got a bunch of points. Ultimately she needed 2 steals to win, but the next time she stole she’d lose her last breaker.

She installs a Maw, and goes into a blockade strategy, trashing my deck a piece at a time. When I finally put the Oaktown in the secure remote she uses Mad Dash on my archives.

If she hits at least 3 points of agendas (IE, hostile takeover and a 2 pointer), then she wins. I use an Armored Server token to try and hold her out, but she discards on through, hitting archives with 3 cards left.

No agendas, 3 Breached Domes. Mad dash kills her.


#661

That feels good. Love it.

More living a nightmare, but:

I’m playing Jesminder. It’s a bit of an underpowered ID but it is nice having the security of knowing I’m not going to be picking up a lot of tags during a run.

I’m playing against CtM. I run a remote with two face downs in it.

I access a Mumbad Virtual Tour first. I have to trash it, and do so. CtM trace fires and I take a tag. The CtM tag can’t be prevented, so my Jesminder ability doesn’t do anything.

I access a PriSec. The corp pays two for it, and I take a meat damage and a tag. This isn’t the first tag I’m taking on the run, so my Jesminder ability doesn’t do anything.

:cry:


#663

Should have accessed the Prisec first. :wink:

Playing a janky argus deck with MCAAP, Mr.Stone, Zealous Judge. I have a scored cleaners. Opponent has a handsize of 8 due to a braincage and a memory diamond but is luckily poor since they made a run last turn and trashed my Illegal arms factory.

My Turn:
Click MCAAP placing 3rd power counter.
Click MCAAP gaining 4 clicks.
Rez Mr.Stone
Sea Source -> 2 damage.
Rez Zealous Judge
Click -> 2 damage
Click -> 2 damage
Click -> 2 damage
Click -> 2 damage

Me as Laguna Lock Hayley versus Palana non-Nisei.

IP Block and an unrezzed ICE behind it protecting R&D. (Miraju is my suspicion.)

Indexing, Stimhack, “Freedom through Equality”, Lady, and 3 other cards to start the turn in my hand. (Opponent had rezzed Agroplex, and Beth draws me a card.)

12 Credits. 4 points stolen. Time in the round is about to be called (and is called mid-turn.)

Relevant installed cards: SMC, Femme Fatale targeting an ice on the remote, Beth, The Shadow Net. Meanwhile Test Run and most of my programs in the heap, and 1 Fan Site in my score area.

After calculating if I have enough credits:
Non-Click: SMC for Clot (cheapest remaining program) to trash Femme, install Lady from hand. (-8 credits = 4 credits)
Click 1: Freedom through Equality. (-3 credits = 1 credit)
Click 2: Forfeit Fan Site to The Shadow Net to play Test Run from heap, installing Femme, targeting inside ice on R&D.
Click 3: Indexing. Boost Lady by 1, break IP Block. (0 credits remaining.) Opponent rezzes DNA Tracker. Uh oh! Current cards in hand: Stimhack, 3 other cards. 3 net leaves Stimhack alone in my grip. Indexing puts a Medical Breakthrough on top.
Click 4: Stimhack R&D. Boost Lady, break IP Block, bypass DNA Tracker, steal for the win.

0 cards in hand, 0 real credits, 0 clicks, 0 turns, impending lethal brain damage, but sweet sweet victory!
