First game Ben M won as HB in a very long(over 1.5 hours) hard fought game. Jeremy the runner (Criminal) had 6 agenda points and corp had 3 but runner hit a Project Junebug trying to get the last point.

Second game Ben M as Criminal runner and Jeremy as Weyland. Runner build up a good rig and did some early runs. Weyland built up some huge servers with 3 Hadrian Walls in 3 different servers. Ben stole a Private SEcurity Force right before corp discovered illegal card in remote server, ice in the server instead of the agenda which was the private security force Ben stole. Costly mistake. Runner took a tag and failed to remove it (no idea why), two Scorched Earths and on to game 3. So two mistakes and ended at 16-16 for each. Tie breaker next.

For game 3 Ben won the roll and took his HB deck back out for the final game. Fast start for Jeremy to 5 agenda points from HQ. game then went on for quite a while. Jeremy ended up scoring his last two points to win 8-2.

You can watch it all online too as the videos are all recorded on the FFG justin.tv account.Broken up in to 30 minute clips. www.justin.tv/fantasyflightgames/videos

 Congrats to Jeremy. Anybody know how many players were in attendance? Totals for other games would be interesting to know as well. :)

 41 Netrunner players, 57 AGOT melee and 81 AGOT joust are the numbers I know.  John Bruno and I were the other players to make top 4 cut for Netrunner.  John played HB/Crim and I played NBN/Anarch.

 Cool. I guess that's down considerably from GenCon, but then this is the first year for this. NetRunner and SW should both be getting interesting next year around this time, so maybe next year will be bigger.

I take it that the Invasion turnout was small? :(

 I don't know the numbers for sure, it looked to be in the 20s.  Jeremy also ended up winning that as well, quite the weekend for him.

Impressive! And 20s is pretty good for Invasion, all things considered.

 I actually just posted it on the deckbuilding subforum, figured people might want to see it as there wasn't much NBN in the field.

Congrats to Jeremy!  He was a great opponent and I look forward to playing him again.  For the record, I didn't drop the tag in game two because I completely forgot about it!  Turns out hours of gaming turns your brain into mush (brain damage?)!

 

Congrats again, Jeremy!

I have to say that I am quite surprised about quality of the play I saw in finals. I didn't feel that I am watching World Championship finals. I would be ok if tournament wouldn't be called as World Championships. I am not sure if this kind of thing is good for competitive part of the game because the whole World Champion title might not have much value. Is there any reason that FFG calls "local tournament" a World Championships and why they don't do championships in a big convention (like Gencon)? I am from Europe so couldn't attend to this event any way but I find it strange how FFG handles the competitive part of their games.

But congrats to winner!

It is was moved to their event center this year from GenCon. It is not a local tournament however. It was the world championships at their own site instead of GenCon. Some of the reasoning for it can be heard on the team covenant interview video with Steve Horvath. I hope to make it there next year.

Thank you everyone, I really appreciate it!  I'm sorry my skill level may not be of world class caliber but I literally started playing Netrunner two weeks ago (grueling matches and a lack of sleep also took its toll). I want to congratulate and thank Ben for such an intense and memorable finals! And thanks to FFG for hosting a spectacular event.

The turnout was 43 players and, to me, it  felt like a World Championships - I battled players from Germany, Los Angeles, Oklahoma, and Iowa. The game is fairly new and many areas have yet to establish a competetive tournament scene. I'm sure next year's Championships will be bigger and tougher as the game grows and evolves.

The metagame was full of Criminal, some Shaper, and very little Anarch. HB was well represented, some NBN and  Weyland, and maybe three Jinteki. I'm sure the first Datapack will shake things up.

Thanks again for an amazing weekend!
