How much testing do you do with decks?
Netrunnerdb seems to be teeming with people that have rolled on a random chart and put a deck together before sharing it with the world, but even those that have tested have frequently run single-digit games. “This deck has gone 6-1 in testing!”
It might just be my background and career choice, but this doesn’t seem anything but a basic “does the deck compile?” unit test. For me, real testing needs tens of games against multiple archetypes.
Essentially, if you can’t count the number of times you’ve used the deck on your fingers, it’s not tested yet.
How about you? What constitutes a well-tested deck? How many games do you give something shaky before you admit to yourself it’s not working? What number of consecutive successes convince you that you’ve minted pure gold from base lead?
As one of the segment of playyas that likes to make decks last minute, in the wee hours before a tournament, I’m not suggesting anyone can’t play untested decks at a Store Championship, or isn’t allowed to post it online until they’ve had 100 games minimum… but it is curious to me that a handful of games counts as “tested”.
