  1. There's a group of us looking to start up some Organized Play in my area (Indianapolis) soon and I'm fairly worried about this as well. I've been a part of a few different card game communities over the years and there's always at least one person (sometimes even a group of them) who take it too seriously and ruin it for everyone else. Competition just does that to people I suppose but it's what tends to keep me from really getting involved as much as I would like. I'm wondering if working closely with the shop owner and laying down some rules would be fair or if that's too much? No derogatory comments about deckbuilds, style of play or lack of rules knowledge, good sportsmanship, etc. I know we can't force people to be friendly but maybe we could encourage the bad apples to allow others to have the fun they want to have without fear of being made fun of or treated like idiots.

Should be some at a local gathering this Saturday (http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/156504/game-on-game-day-may-4th-request-list), I'm a n00b too and I'm planning on being there. Had a great time playing on Saturday! I know there's at least four of us who play: with you guys, myself and my friend Ethan. If we can find a good place that would host us I think we could get a regular gaming night going, hold some tournaments, have a good time, etc. Maybe eventually get them to order some prize support things and whatnot. What do you guys think?

Your critiques of Crypsis have been addressed sufficiently by others in this thread, but I wanted to call this statement out for a couple reasons. 1. For a Tournament Organizer, such as yourself, this is not the way you should be referring to potential players who are coming to your events. I know I won't be attending one now because I like to have fun and enjoy myself without being judged and/or mocked for my card choices. While I'm sure you couldn't care less about this, the fact is you're encouraging what you're crying out against. The kind of prize support isn't deterring me from a Netrunner tournament, the TO is. 2. Speaking in an absoulte such as this, seems to show some shortsighted-ness and lack of understanding of the game. From my experience, Netrunner is just as much about gameplay skill as it is about deck building skill. Maybe I'm wrong here, but considering this card has been argued for and against in this very thread seems to support my argument here. Either way, to say that having this one card in your deck means not winning a tournament is the worst kind of conjecture and hyperbole. RanisTheSlayer said: It's not a worthwhile prize. To you. I'll bet someone who likes Crypsis and runs it and *GASP* wins with it, loves this. Could FFG have chosen a "better" card? Possibly. In my opinion, we should be happy with prize support at all. Look, if you don't use it in your deck then it's just another trophy like any other (deckbox, playmat, giant sword) prize.

  5. Weekend tournaments would be fantastic! I've got a couple friends who also play and the weekend would be better for them as well. I'll see what I can do about coming out after work every once in awhile. When is the first one?
  6. Aww, ****, that sucks! I work nights Monday through Friday till 9pm every week. I was going to see about starting some OP myself so it looks like I'll have to start up something a bit more fitting to my schedule.

You could almost pronounce it as "5th". I see what you did there… So who wants to post a kickstarter to get this game back up and running? lol
