Well, we were both trashtalking each other so it was fair and square :D.
I’m totally ok about some friendly banters in a tournament.
On the Earthrise Hotel : I think he hotel was played because my opponent didn’t have econ and IHW in his starting hand and wasn’t willing to discard cards because all the card he had was important. He told me afterward that his starting hand was Mimic, Corroder, Clone Chip, Stimhack and Hotel. By playing anything else, it could have hit is tempo even more and if he started to draw, he would have been forced to discards some cards he really don’t want to. By playing hotel and going to 2 creds, he could have drawn either a Kati, a Daily Cast or an Armitage with it. And to be fair, I don’t think a lot of players would have trashed hotel like I did on turn 2. Some frenchies even think it was a mistake because I used a biotic to score an agenda who wasn’t astroscript :).
On not trashing sansan: The turn I rezzed the first sansan, my opponent couldn’t trash it because he clicked through eli. And afterward it wasn’t possible anymore because I was always around 2-4 creds so if he ran the sansan, I would have rezzed the wraparound and it would force him to play his corroder. In fact, the only time he could have trashed my sansan was when I was at 0 or 1 creds.
. When you are playing siphon maxx, you can only pressure the corp if you’re rich as well and I did everything to be sure that both players would play broke. If he started to trash the assets/upgrades and go low on creds, I would have started to score more agressively on my remote because I know he wouldn’t be able to siphon me.
