Draft Packs? Any Sightings?

11 posts in this topic

thank you for the info :-)

 

Btw, according to the german publishers webpage, the original draft packs will come out in Q1 2014, while the translated ones will follow soon after these. Here are the news pages:

That would make sense, since the announcement for the release of the Game of Thrones packs just came up the other day on the main page of the site.

Hey Guys

I am new to Netrunner and was already asking myself when there will be drafting, so it's good to hear that they already did this and so soon after the game's release, too!

 

Another question, that probably is slightly misplaced here, that I have:

1) In general at Netrunner tournaments, does every player play both, Corp and Runner decks, or do the players choose a faction and then stick to it for the whole tournament?

 

2) Correspondingly, when drafting: Do I have to draft both, Corp and Runner and build two decks, or how does it work?

 

I ask this because I am wondering: The game basically needs a lot of players for each tournament to work if the players just play one faction. On the other hand, playing both factions would mean players have to play a lot of rounds? (equal amount for eacht corp and runner?)

 

I am sure the question has been answered elsewhere already, so sorry for the slightly off-topic post here.

Tournament play requires both players to play Corp and Runner. Matches are usually timed, and you have to try and finsih both games within the time limit. The tournament rules explain the scoring in more detail, but essentially winning a match is worth points, and the loser scores according the number of Agenda points scored (in knockout anyway; Swiss works differently).

 

Draft games can vary - you can do a full-draft, where you play both sides, or half-draft where you only play Corp OR runner.

 

Hope that helps :)
