So, finally, after 3 months of tense matches, the 2nd BGG A:NR OCTGN Tournament has concluded (Now that's a lot of acronyms) and we have a champion!

Unfortunately for you, you don't get to know who won yet, but fortunately we have an event that aims to preserve the exctitement of the finals. The livestreamed world premiere of the final 4 matches!

The plan is as follows: this coming Sunday at 6pm CEST (GMT+2), you tune-in to my twitch.tv channel where I will be streaming the pre-recorded casts of finalists. Hollis VS AndrewRogue for the Bronze position, and Inermis VS Orange Devil for the first place.

The matches will be streamed in such a way so as to be similar to how you normally see a streamed match, and thus hopefully retain the exctitement of the live game. Further to that, you'll be able to use the real time chat as your personal peanut gallery and we will very likely have the actual players as special guests for you to grill on their horrible plays. Can't miss such opportunities!

Finally, after the matches are over, I will post a final interview with the finalists where you can hear their opinions on the tournament, the meta and, of course, their finals games.

So, tune your clocks and remember the time: 6pm CEST on Sunday, you get to see the climatic conclusion of the only worldwide and easily largest Android:Netrunner tournament up to date!

Until then, sate your appetite with this playlist of 40 casted tournament matches, of which easily 35 are matchups between some of the top players in the world right now!

See y'all in 2 days!

Thanks for letting us be your co-hosts and thanks for all the effort you put into the plug-in and into the tournament casting as well. You are a great credit to the Android Netrunner community. Keep up the great work!

Due to a conflict (known and worked out with DB0) (namely live-play at Labyrinth DC), I will not be 'in attendance', but I am there spiritually.

There is a minor chance that I will have my PC at the Labyrinth Event to have this running in the background for those who are between games and/or have an interest.

I will definitely watch the 'rerun' when it's posted though.

You've clearly never worked for the military in any way. That's hardly even a few acronyms.

I will not be able to attent the LIVE event due to out-of-town regionals, but I will definitely watch them offline if made available. Tried to get some scoop from OrangeDevil but his mouth was sealed ;(

Hollis and Rogue in the semifinals? The two premiere Netrunner writers meet! I'm almost more excited for that one than the finals.

I'm flattered and somewhat >_> at the fact I'm considered on of the premiere writers.

Or software. I worked a single project one time that had a 19 letter acronym

Edit: which is ridiculous of course given who it is we're talking about, but the line doesn't work as well any other way

You obviously don't have kids. It's 10 AM on a Sunday right now and I've been up for 3 and a half hours.....

The matches were awesome, the lean was a bit skewed by luck, but damn, it was great! Congrats to all!

And man, let's talk strategies instead of immediately vulturing for netdecks Anyone who wants to reveal their decklists will do so on their own prerogative

(besides, they're out of date already)

While they are out of date at this point they're still fun to look at.
