I’m zafuri or you can call me Jeffrey. I’m from Penang, Malaysia in which our community was just sort of “revived” thanks to the surge of Core 2.0.
We had an influx of newbies recently joining the pool of Netrunners and everyone is very excited with new cards, new janky format ideas (188.8.131.52, Cache Refresh format with different cycle mixes) we all came up with and we are running regular meet-ups and leagues in which all are community ran.
However we found a problem here.
The first batch of newbies have no issue catching up, as we made customized league formats to prepare them for standard format. However, we have concern for those who came later to join us. We wouldn’t want to roll back to formats with core sets only which is pretty boring to those who had progressed so far. But we are also reluctant to introduce to them too many cards at once, which is overwhelming to total newbies.
Hence, I would like to know how the community of other areas are managing the player pool with events that help newbies out. Please throw in any ideas you have ! Will really appreciate all the inputs !
