Oops, we did it again. Mead Crüe has assembled another pile of swag for you to battle over. More swag than NISEI wants to give you, and more than FFG ever dared. And what's more, we're taking Minnesota ANR's favorite illicit bloodsport right to where it all began: Fantasy Flight Games Event Center.
Yeah. You heard that right. We don't give a f***. OTG and Mead Crüe is riding up straight gangster. We hold the tournies where we want. We give the prizes that we want. We run these Nets. So come throw down, get your swag on, and raise the one finger salute to anyone who says our game is dead and gone.
Oh, and that swag? Don’t even trip. Miles from www.aurbits.com has a small set of goodies for the first 30 people to check in, plus OTG has alt playmats, alt arts, and other swag for you to grab. Have a peak by looking at the images below.
THIS IS A NISEI REGIONAL. ALL OFFICIAL KIT PRIZES AND A NATS BYE ARE FOR GRABS.
Event goes down at 10:00PM CT on 6/15/19 at Fantasy Flight Games Event Center. For those that don’t know, this is at 1975 County Road B2 W, Roseville, MN 55113, USA. We’re doing registration roughly at 10:00AM, with cards hitting the tables at 11:00AM.
Rounds are going to be 65 minutes, with roughly 4-6 depending on attendance followed by a Top 4/8. A break after the second round, around 1:10PM, will be observed for lunch and/or dinner. FFG has food, but does not allow anything ordered in. The break will be roughly an hour. Plan accordingly. There's not a whole lot close other than nasty fast food.
Entry Fee will be $15 in either cash or Venmo/PayPal (details at event), which will go towards covering participation prizes, raffle prizes, and the Regionals Kit. TOs and some contributors will take a cut and then, if there’s left over, we will be putting that towards future tournaments. Unfortunately, there will be no cash prizes.
FULL NISEI TOURNEY RULES, FLOOR RULES, MWL, AND PACK LEGALITY WILL BE OBSERVED. Even though this is an illicit event, we’re not animals. Please familiarize yourself with whatever the current official rules are, as we will be following them in the spirit of keeping this close to actual competitive Netrunner.
Players will be expected to bring decklists (or fill out on-site), and adhere to all established NISEI policies for conduct, tournament rules, and Standard Format card legality.
Scorched Earth & Hunter Seeker Prizes:
Additional prize opportunities are what makes this OTG. Check it:
Scorched Earth is a Minnesota ANR and Mead Crüe tradition. It is a special, undisclosed prize awarded to the lowest ranked non-dropped player. This is to reward their tenacity and perseverance for sticking with it even after it’s pretty clear winning isn’t in the cards (no pun intended). I know it's possible, but please don't intentionally drop games for this.
Hunter Seekers are bounties on the heads of any former Worlds Top 16 Competitors in attendance (we may get @spags, @aandries, @Ajar, @paranoid, @dashakan, and possibly Jens). It’s simple: If you are paired against and best one of these top players, you’ll have your choice of @babyweyland’s excellent alt art IDs.
(Any and all event details are subject to change. Also, the above is in jest; we love our FFG homies. In the case of any saltiness, please know that any and all dickish comments will be ignored and summarily dismissed.)
