Collecting names and reviving the scene in Montreal.  Now that the game is de-archived and rezzed, it's time to run once more!!

Already 6 active players contacted, drop a line and we will get organized play going.

Merci!

 Hi, I'm from Cowansville (20 minutes from Granby, 1h from Montreal and from Sherbrooke). We are 3 players here so far. We will make an official lauch of Netrunner this Sunday (21th September) at our game store in the evening (www.zonevideo.ca). We intend on doing organized play if we manage to gather enough players to join us in the area. You are welcome to come play with us on Sunday evening (I know it's a bit far, but you're welcome anyway ).

I know a few people in addition to myself who would be interested in playing! We're all located in the West Island area (4-6 of us). Kind of busy right now with the end of the semester crunch, but once that's over with, I'm sure we'll have lots of time to play!

I have a playgroup of 2-4 players who might be interested to do organized play, but more on the week-end since we work evening shifts.

Let me know should you ever do so.

Our first organized play event was great fun.  10 players gathered at Pub Randolph for an evening of learning, testing, bluffing, running and laughing.  A few managed to defy the odds, testing the very limits of their hardware and a more than a few servers were skillfully breached and cleansed of mischevious projects.
 
Attendees & their total match scores, number of matches, and identities(Runner & Corp):
 
  • Marc-André      58-48 (4)  Gabriel & Weyland
  • David B.            47-30 (3)  Gabriel & Weyland
  • Stephen            47-48 (4)  Kate  & Haas Bioroid
  • Francois C.      45-33 (3)  Gabriel & Haas Bioroid
  • Eric B.               44-44 (3)   Noise & Haas Bioroid
  • Jean-Philippe 31-46 (3)   Noise & Haas Bioroid
  • Hugues            29-56 (3)   Noise &  Weyland
  • Francois P.      28-24 (2)  Gabriel & NBN
  • Eric Y.               22-34 (2)   Noise & NBN
  • David C.           20-7 (1)     Gabriel & Weyland
 
As this was the group's first gathering, we didn't time the matches or enforce tournament rules.  The idea was for everyone to have fun and try out their decks.  It was the first time playing the game for two players; it was the perfect moment for newbies!
 
Noone was brave enough to give Whizzard a try, but we did see plenty of the cards from the first expansion (the second one wasn't yet in anyone's hands yesterday…).  Given the number of groans from missing credits to trash those pesky Pad Campaigns, I suspect we may see Whizzard yet…  Most decks were customized and there was sufficient variety to offer challenges for the new and veteran players.  Some even resurrected from a previous golden age.  Oh and yes, it happened a few times when someone was just one credit short of the perfect plan.  The game is designed to do that.  Repeatedly.
 
The highlights of the evening include two flatlines; an eerie sequence of runs against my NBN HQ where the lone Closed Accounts was picked 5 times in a row and in the same game a Closed Accounts wiped out 9 credits from Noise; a player insisted on accessing Biotic Labor from HQ, not once, not twice but 8 times.
 
This particular card has a story.  In the very first Netrunner game I played back in October, I managed to access this card 4 times in a row from HQ.  Being royally miffed, I shifted my attention to R&D, only to find..  Biotic Labor.  By that point, my opponent, Stephen, was having a hard time breathing from the incessant laughter, but he could tell I wasn't pleased with what I had just seen.  When Stephen drew it, right then I knew he was going mad with joy.  The really weird thing is that Marc-André who managed to access it 8 times last night, was right there to witness the scene.  
The card has been renamed the Twins.  The reference is obfuscated, but here goes: the two bioroïds on the card look like Mulder & Scully from the X Files, which the creator said was inspired by the show Twin Peaks.  Hence the Twins.
 
More organized play will be held; next event will be in February.  But many players are keen to play, so find them on FantasyFlightGames.com, or send me a request to join the Montreal City Grid on Facebook or Google+.  Events will be posted in the fantasyflightgames.com forums as well.
Thanks!

M'y highlight of the night was scoring from 0 to 7 with Noise finally breaking through Archives after a very large number of failed runs.

My highlight?  My deck construction and random shuffling that totally saved me from a Noise R&D search deck that I was unprepared for.
Miscalculated defenses on R&D, Runner has enough creds/resources to run and access R&D, does so 4 times in same turn, with 2 Mediums out.

He accessed about 11 cards from R&D in the fourth run that turn.

Not one was an agenda or a trashable card.

We were both mystified :)

Waiting a whole month for the next meetup was too long for me, so I decided to offer my humble place for a small evening of Netrunner. We were six players, and it's surprising how competitive all the players were! There's already a very good maturity in our local pool, and the future looks pretty good!

Here are our results for yesterday, with the scores, the number of matches played and the decks played.

 

Eric Y

36 (2)

Gabriel & Haas-Bioroid

David

36 (3)

Noise & Haas-Bioroid

Eric B

34 (2)

Gabriel & Weyland

Jonathan

31 (3)

Gabriel & Haas-Bioroid

Marc-André

20 (2)

Noise & Jinteki

Jean-Philippe

20 (2)

Noise & Haas-Bioroid

 

See you next time!
