Lockdown #14 - Unlocking the Gateways

The second season of Lockdown continues... with an unsurprising meta-twist! Time to open the Gateway and say "bye" to some old time favourites.

Anyone and everyone is welcome to sign up, as long as you can participate in both the Swiss rounds (4) and the Top Cut games (double elimination).

Dropping out for whatever reason is allowed but will make us all sad. You have been warned.


ONLY THROUGH THIS FORM - if you registered via ABR, you are not automatically included in the event, sorry! This is due to the specific requirements for player/deck information before the game.

(A reminder that "local time" for this event = this)

Technical requirements

  • a stable internet connection
  • access to jinteki.net
  • access to Discord - discordapp.com (voice communications optional but encouraged) - tournament channel is here - join the #lockdown channel and use the #roles channel to assign the Lockdown role to your account

Event structure:

  1. Player meeting on Discord (around 20 minutes before start of Round 1)
  2. 4 Swiss rounds of 65 minutes maximum each. Breaks of 5-10 minutes between each round, as required, at TO's discrection.
  3. X minute break before Top Cut (as agreed with the Top Cut Players)
  4. Top 4 Cut - double elimination (40 minute per game). Decklists might be public, depending on the joint decision of the Top 4 Cut participants. The games in the Final are not timed.
  5. Finalist stream chat + Q&A!

ID choice & deckbuilding restrictions

  • Each legal Runner and Corp ID has a score attributed to it, going from -1 (special case) up to 10.
  • Players are allowed to freely pick any Runner and Corp ID to participate with, as long as the sum of their scores (their "ID score") is 10 or less.
  • As an extra incentive to pick less powerful/popular IDs and diversify the field, the "ID score" is considered the primary tie breaker for Swiss ranking in this format. For example, if two players both are at 12 tournament points after round four of Swiss, the player with an "ID score" of 4 would be higher ranked than the player with a score of 9. In case of a tie, Strength of Schedule and extended SoS will still determine ranking as per usual. Ah, one more thing...


Morph and mutate your decks to manipulate your tie-breaker ID score!
Please note: this does not allow you to go over 10 ID points in total when choosing IDs.

Both for Runner and Corp decks that meet any of the requirements listed below, your final ID score will be lowered by 1 (one) extra ID point for each requirement that you meet. How does that work in quasi-mathematical terms?

  1. You choose a Runner and a Corp from the pool the sum of which does not exceed -1 or 10 (as per the usual Lockdown rules).
  2. You build your decks following the regular deck building rules and the Lockdown ban lists.
  3. You check them for the optional requirements below.
  4. If your decks meet a requirement, your final ID score is lowered by 1 ID point for each requirement met per each deck (to a maximum of 8 minus points if both your decks meet all the optional requirements).

All of the following are optional and each one is worth 1 ID point for the purpose of the tiebreaker ID score:

  • The deck uses 2/3rds of the IDs printed influence points (rounded up to the nearest full number) (that means: 17 for 25 influence point IDs, 12 for 17 influence point IDs, 10 for 15 influence point IDs, 8 for 12 influence point IDs, 7 for 10 influence point IDs)
  • The deck includes only incomplete play sets of all cards in it (fewer than 3 copies of a card in most cases, fewer than 6 or 1 copy in other cases, as per text on the card).
  • The deck does not include cards of all different types available for the side (Corps: Asset, Upgrade, ICE, Operation // Runners: Event, Program, Hardware, Resource).
  • The deck is bigger by at least 4 cards (Runners) (than the printed card minimum of the ID) or smaller by at least 3 cards (Corps) (than the printed card minimum + agenda point modifier of +4 cards). For example, if your ID says that the smallest amount of cards you can have is 45 for CORP, you need to have at most 46 cards AND 20 Agenda Points in it for it to meet this requirement (or 22 Agenda Points and 51 cards, etc.). For a 45 card minimum RUNNER deck, the requirement would be at least 49 cards in the deck (or 54 for a 50 card minimum, etc.)

Outside of these rules, the game plays identically to Standard format. Rotation and the latest Ban List are in effect (in this case SBL 20.09).

Question: Does the ID point limit count for using DJ Fenris ?
Answer: YES IT DOES - YOU CAN'T dance to DJ FENRIS with another RUNNER that has an illegal/excessive ID cost.
Runner ID + Corp ID + Runner ID hosted on DJ Fenris have to have an ID cost equal to or lower than 10


There will be streaming happening, mainly via Twitch. All explicit requests to be streamed will be considered.

If you are not OK with being on the stream with your game(s), please put "DNS" at the end of your table name on jinteki.net during the tournament (but do allow spectators, for TO calls!). All requests to not be streamed will be honoured. You can absolutely change your mind about being on/off stream in between rounds - just don't forget to use the "DNS" code, it will make my life much easier, thanks!

If you want to co-stream the event, please coordinate with the TO to avoid crossing the streams (they say it's dangerous). Also, consider getting a free listing in the community directory.
