Get ready to jack-in and slam back some cyber-juice chummers! $5 entry, four rounds of swiss. In the event of significant tournament we'll do three rounds of swiss and a cut to top 8. Prizes are as follows:
Top 16: Alternate art Kakugo. The Runner might find a way to break your Kakugo; indeed, it's to be expected. Still, as the alternate art on this barrier suggests, the ice is sharper and more dangerous than the Runner might expect. It doesn't just break; it explodes into crystalline fragments or shrapnel—slicing into the Runner for one net damage and ensuring that even when the Runner breaks the ice, it still does its work toward breaking the Runner.
Top 2: Alternate art NBN: Controlling the Message. Why would you ever leave your assets unprotected where the Runner could trash them? Because sometimes—as the alt art on this NBN ID card suggests—you can lose a few battles to bait your opponent into the mistake that lets you win the war. Those Controlling the Message traces can pay off, especially when they help your sysops locate the Runner in real time… and the merc squads are never far behind.
Champion: Acrylic Jinteki click tracker. As the Champion of a Critical Run event, you can follow Jinteki's motto of Personal Evolution and evolve from your basic click tracker to this custom acrylic tracker. Its sides assemble around Jinteki's signature bonzai tree, representing your movement round-after-round toward the advancement of your ultimate agenda.
