The awesome ANR card database site netrunnercard.info has recently added a new section containing a comprehensive list of rules, FAQs and ruling. This is all kinds of awesome by itself, but its existense allows me to add a link to it from within the game itself!
This will allow you now to look up particular rules and rulings while you’re playing a game on OCTGN, without having to fish the pdf files in your hard drive and perform searches on them. Not only that, but it includes a compilation of card rulings provided by the game designers, even if they haven’t reached the FAQ yet.
All-in-all, this should hopefully cut down on rules arguments if the crop up and help you focus on playing the game instead.
This new functionality has been added as of version 3.1.10.x
Hollis has just released the second part of his analysis of the balance on the 99th percentile of A:NR OCTGN users. He actually crunched the Glicko-2 rating of the players in the 40k dataset and set about seeing how the runner-corporation balance sits in matches between high-rated players.
Definitely worth taking a look.
As an aside, I’ve now also created a Statistics page, where I compile links to such interesting articles and also provide the raw data dump for people who want to do further analysis.
The other day I played and recorded an interesting game for the OCTGN Alpha League. I was playing my “Flytrap” deck and I had just managed to start clawing back the mid game, when I got too excited and made a crucial mistake. But I’ll let you see it for yourselves 😉
Android: Netrunner is an asymmetrical cyberpunk Card Game for two players made by Fantasy Flight Games.
Set in a dystopian, cyberpunk future where monolithic megacorps own and control the vast majority of human interests. While corporation players try to score points by advancing their agendas, they have to guard their intellectual properties from the elite and subversive hackers known as netrunners.
This is a game definition for the Online Card and Tabletop Gaming Network (OCTGN). Its card effects are almost completely automated to allow for smoother play and prevent mistakes
