|Android: Netrunner The Card Game | Published 18 October 2013|
The 2013 Android: Netrunner World Championship tournament is just around the corner, and that means it’s time for an update to the Android: Netrunner FAQ (pdf, 13.5 MB) and Tournament Rules (pdf, 1.3 MB).
This November 7th – 10th, players from across the globe will start their runs on the Fantasy Flight Games Center and the FFG World Championship Weekend to vie for control of the network’s most valuable data. The cat-and-mouse struggles of Android: Netrunner are full of high-stakes bluffs and gambles, so when you attend, you’ll want to make sure you’ve fully scanned and processed the information in these official, updated rules documents.
For more about the changes, we present you with a few words from the game’s developers.
A Word from the Developers
Greetings, Android: Netrunner players!
In the updated FAQ you will find new answers about cards released in Creation and Control and Opening Moves. You will also find our very first card errata in the game.
Pawn (Opening Moves, 2), with its original wording, allowed players to play against its intended ability by not hosting it on a piece of ice. This was not the intent on the card, and the ability to search for another Caïssa program now requires Pawn to be hosted on a piece of ice. We will correct the text on all future printings of the card.
The tournament rules have no significant changes, other than a note that Second Thoughts is not legal for Worlds. It is important that players are confident in their preparation for a major tournament, and we do not want to surprise them with any potential last minute swings in the meta.
Thanks for playing the game, and don't forget to submit your rules questions by clicking on the Rules Submission form on the bottom of each page of this website.
