As many suspected it is the Alt-Art Noise that has featured prominently at other National championships. Interesting to note is that FFG is giving away a second copy of the Noise card as a completion prize.

I hear that there were problems last year with people taking the participation prize and leaving, do you think a second copy will help people stay through the Swiss rounds?

Since they're going for between 100 and 200 dollars on ebay, I suspect it will. It'll also, hopefully, suppress the price a little bit (so I can get one, maybe).

It is surprising, since you can prevent the joining but not staying until the end by simply giving the prizes at the end of the tournament

Two big differences:
- More players participate this year, and more Nationals are held this year. SO more cards are going into circulation
- You only need 1 Noise. PSF everyone could need 3 of.

Therefor I don't see it.

Anyone who was planning to register for the tournament, get their card, and drop out already did so months ago long before this announcement. They will probably still do the same thing. Staying in for the extra card is likely not an option for them as they most likely already have another event booked.

But next year we may see the effect.

Seems odd that Netrunner would get less in the way of playmats compared to SW or AGoT.

As was explained in another thread, it has more to do with the tournament structure than anything else.
