On the top left of Sneakdoor Zeta you have the tabs:
General - These are your miscellaneous settings
Factions - Select the Factions to include / exclude
Sentry / Barrier / Code Gate / Other - You can select the ice type here to exclude other ice types. Eg. For only sentries, go to the Sentry tab and select Sentry only. You can also select Killer only in the Sentry tab to exclude the AI and specialist breakers.

To exclude individual ice or breakers, click on them in the respective tabs to make them disappear. To reset, use the General tab.

So…does anyone ever offer coaching advice via octgn? I have no local meta (closest shop is almost 2 hours away) aside from my wife. I mostly play on octgn. I am doing very well (IMO) of getting a grasp on the basics. But I struggle with the strategy aspects that require finesse. Would love if someone could offer personal advice “over my shoulder” during some games. I get great feedback afterwards, but that doesn’t help as much as making the decision in the moment.

I have a rules question. Let’s say I have an Asteroid Belt unrezzed and am staring at Roja with a Xanadu on the other side of the table. Can I 4x advance the Asteroid Belt to pay for Roja and Xanadu’s extra tax?


#23

Yes. They both change the rez cost itself. I believe something like Running Interference wouldn’t be negated, though, because it adds an additional cost.


#24

Ok, that’s what I was thinking, but I wasn’t sure. Good to know.


#25

Well, Running Interference in particular won’t help you all that much if the advancement counters pushed the rez cost down to zero, though… paying an extra 0 credits isn’t so bad, after all :stuck_out_tongue:


#26

True enough. I was thinking of the other one, whose name continues to escape me.


#27

I have a question about the interaction between Au Revoir and Data Raven:

If I have an Au Revoir installed (no Snitch to back it up), make a run, and the Corp pays to rez a Data Raven. If I choose to not take a tag and bounce, does that count as jacking out, thereby netting me Au Revoir credits?

Thanks.


#28

Don’t believe so, because Data Raven basically says to take a tag or end the run, not take a tag or jack out. Data Raven is still ending the run, just not through a subroutine. Kind of like if Caprice kills your run (or a Nisei counter), it’s not jacking out, it’s just that the run is ended.

That’s Tennin NA, actually. He talks about NA tactics (scoring unadvanced Nisei mkII, bluffing with Jackson and Crisium). I’ve been playing a similar deck since H&P, but this is the first time something like it has been mentioned as top tier. Usually everybody just expects Trick of Light shenanigans out of Tennin.

Missing Dirty Hands Exile (heap recursion)


#34

Real exile players play chess!

edit:
Well, pawns


#35

Minor detail, but the Valencia list should probably be down as Valencia Chakana rather than Medium Dig. It rarely digs more than 5-6 cards at a time and certainly isn’t set up for true big digs (also a lot of games end on a Nerve Agent run before Medium has even hit the table)


#36

Ty, can you link me a better one?


#37

I’m not saying the linked to deck shouldn’t be included, I did take it to 1st and 2nd place in SCs, I just think it’s been mislabelled. I haven’t seen a Valencia big dig build that’s gone anywhere as yet, the only other SC winning Valencia list I’m aware of is the Eater/Keyhole with Desperado build posted here


#38

Question if you run a sentral server then jack out unsucessful can you run on remote or does it have to be sucessfull


#39

Against Jinteki: RP your central run doesn’t have to be successful to run the remotes, but also you can’t jack out before you encounter the first piece of ice on a server.
