Stimhack Store Champions Invitational & Last Chance Qualifier Fact Sheet

Originally published at: http://stimhack.com/stimhack-store-champions-invitational-last-chance-qualifier-fact-sheet/

Discuss the latest StimHack article here.


I have a question that actually applies to tournaments in general. When time runs out during a match, which system will the stimhack tournament follow:

  1. Current player finishes their turn, and then both players get one additional turn.
  2. Current player finishers their turn, and then only the other player gets one additional turn.

I have seen both used in store championships. I don’t know if one is right one wrong, or if the rule is up to interpretation by the TD.

The second option is the correct one, it is not up to interpretation by TOs.

Thus, the current player completes the current turn when time is called, and the other player completes his/her next turn; no further turns beyond those.


If you would like to donate to Stimhack for the tournament, you can do so here:



Will there be a voice chat server for participants to use? Not everyone is an OCTGN pro, and being able to just tell your opponent what you are doing is super helpful, especially with a time limit.

I wasn’t planning on it but I’ll post information about db0s mumble server in the fact sheet for players who want to use it. Does anyone have this information available?

Added information about donations, rules disputes, and the Mumble server to the rules section


Loving the Stam Herk page change today.


I’ll never be able to unsee it.

I got a question and a suggestion about the rules for this.

As everyone should be using the same deck throughout, which works kind of funny for OCTGN in a way it doesn’t in person.

But what is the rule if someone loads the wrong deck list? (Most notably, same ID, different cards). Auto-loss once the game is in progress? How about if they draw the starting hand and realize its the wrong deck? Is it still an auto-loss? Should the other person get to keep their hand?

As a follow up suggestion, I would recommend that everyone put the decks they’re using in a separate folder (especially people like me who have 3-4 versions of the same deck) just for the tournament. That way, you always have 1 corp deck and 1 runner deck to choice from which are the right decks, rather than accidentally selecting the wrong Maxx deck,


Sometimes it happens on OCTGN specially after someone disconnects that the whole automation of the software gets screwed and it makes impossible to continue the match. What should players do on that scenario?. I’m asking that because that sad thing happened to me a couple of times before :frowning:

We can’t allow reloading of decklists if you already started the game and have drawn a hand. If you load up the wrong ID and switch, that’s okay, but if you see a hand from your deck, and realize it’s the wrong deck, there is no way around it becoming a game loss because we can’t have people reloading decklists to redraw hands. I strongly recommend CAPITALIZING the name of the decklists you are playing, that way they are still where you’re used to them being but are also clearly the one you want to pick while loading up.

This will be counted as a disconnect without reconnect unless your opponent agrees to restart the game. We can’t force game restarts on people, there is simply not enough time in the rounds.

How many players/rounds of swiss for last chance? Ok seen bracket looks like 5 rounds and 29 players.


Should players from the LCQ submit via the Invitational Form?

Yes. In the store field, just write LCQ.

Monday update!

Hi everyone!

It’s with great pleasure that I let you know that The Valley has just been rezzed on OCTGN in plenty of time to test for the tournament, and that it will surely be legal for the invitational. I am in the process of creating a deck submission page on stimhack so everyone can easily submit their decks, as well as finalizing preparations for the tournament and the stream.

I sent out an email to all of you concerning the final rules of the tournament. It would be a huge help if you could respond and participate in my survey. I want everything to run as smoothly and fairly as possible and I thought it would be best if I asked the players how we can best go about that.

Good luck & see you on Sunday!


Also on that line of thought, how much effort should be put into following the spirit of real Netrunner where the automation fails? Some cases are simple manual correction (stealing a Fetal AI from Industrial Genomics, for example, will trigger an additional cost of 2 + facedowns), but there are other interactions that are much more time consuming to work around.

A prime example here is Leela using Legwork. In a real game, if she steals an agenda in the first two cards, and bounces something into HQ, that card is subsequently added to the pool of available cards to access. On OCTGN, you just access three random cards immediately. You can work around it by making three individual runs, and then having the corp place the accessed card faceup on the table for the duration of the Legwork, but particularly against a Criminal deck that may Legwork up to 6 times against say, a slow playing RP deck, that eats into round time pretty quickly.

Should we just give some of the more difficult interactions up as a lost cause due to the medium the tournament is played on?

EDIT: Replied to the wrong post. Whoops. It was supposed to go up on the chain about disconnects/reconnects etc.

Yeah Leela.
