Thought it might be interesting to see a list of who is going to be in the tournament from the forums…

Though I've never actually played Netrunner before.  Only read great things about the former game and very interested in trying it.

 I'm in. Only 32 slots available? I'm guessing tournaments can't get much bigger without requiring multiple days. This is essentially going to be the cap of the weekend.

Yeah, I'll bet they could have sold a lot more than 32 tickets, but there's only so much time.  If it ever gets REALLY big, they can do what some other companies have done and hold several prelim tournaments on the earlier days and the top X from each prelim get into the final tournament.  Often, Regionals or other major tournament winners will get a free pass into the finals, as well.

I would imagine multiple events/tournaments would of sold quite quickly, seeing as how late it was added to the gen con schedule and it sold out in a day or so?

I agree.  If it had been on the schedule from the beginning of event registration I'm sure they could have easily sold a lot more tickets.  Especially if they had events on different days so more people could get around their conflicts with other events.  Maybe next year they will do this.

I think also they need to work on having their LCG events not conflict with each other as much.  For instance, the Game of Thrones tournament and Call of Cthulhu tournament run at the same time.  They can run two tournaments per day (early and late) so there's no reason to have this sort of problem.

 I want in. I think there should be at least 2 more tournaments for Netrunner ( Thurs & fri ).  I guess I can just show up and hope someone else can't play, and take their spot.

Powers209 - If you want to do that, get to the tournament early.  Names get put on the waiting list in the order they show up to ask.  Also, you'll need two generic tickets.

Great news on the tournament expansion.  Now let's see if we can sell out 64 slots!

I'm in. Only 20 tickets left when I went to buy a short while ago.

 If I'm still playing AGoT, though, someone with generic tickets will be happy.


Cordially,

Amuk
