D.C. #9: Hyperdriver

Johno's getting hyped for Worlds! The boys convene to chat about Escalation and the thrilling cards therein, discuss Johno's prep (or lack of it) for Worlds, flail hopelessly in trying to build a deck on the spot, and then finish with a quick game.


Click 1 - Mandatory Draw - 00:02:03

Escalation is here! And if you like code gates, or breaking code gates (also over-the-top murder) have we got a pack for you! We pick out some choice cards and break them down.

Click 2 - Planned Assault - 00:33:46

Click 3 - Brainstorm - 00:46:13

After a request from listener James M, Johno and Joey attempt to build a glacier NBN deck based on Full Immersion RecStudio. They spends ages building a variety of terrible decks (don't worry, we cut most of that out!), and then have a late change of heart and quickly build a surprisingly viable deck.

D.C. #8: Hard At Work

D.C. #5: Apocalypse

Episode 5 is here and hasn't a lot happened! We start off by talking at length about all the new updates to tourney rules and FAQ. We then lighten the mood a little with a brainstorm and our very first off-topic segment - yes that's right, we talk about something other than Netrunner!

D.C. #4: Quality Time

Epsiode 4 is here! Firstly, we accidentally chatted for ages, like twice as long as usual. Sorry. We will try and keep it shorter in the future. Buy we aren't making any promises. We are a slave to the creative process and whatever chaff comes out of our mouths when the mics are on. 

Secondly, this was recorded before all the new updates (FAQ/Tournament etc), and so please excuse all the talk of NEH dominance and how great Wyldside is.

So join us for a look at Fear the Masses, a Game Day with a difference as we swap runner decks for a GNK, a lengthy discussion of alternate tournament structures (teams anyone?) and our attempts to up-sell the Sysops!

Finally make sure to check out the UK branch of the ANRPC, known as BABW. Satellite tournaments start up soon (including in Reading in September) with a chance to play in the finals and win a trip to Worlds!

This time we mandy into Fear the Masses as Johno and Joey pick their favourite 2 cards as well as a couple of honourable mentions.
