Episode 150 - All good things…

June 19, 2018

On our agenda:

  • It's been more than just fun, and it's been more than just a game. We are so, so grateful for the community, our listeners and supporters, tournaments, travel, testing, decklists, tournament snackfoods, technical difficulties, 150+ Skype linkups, wonderful guests, and lifelong friends.  This game has been a part of all of our lives for the better part of 6 years, and now the ride, at least the official FFG-endorsed ride, is over. 
  • We reflect on the life of Android: Netrunner and the past 3 and a half years of TWA!  Brian Holland, Hollis Eacho, Wilfy Horig and Jesse Marshall sit down to discuss it all and what the game and the podcast have meant to them. 
  • It's an emotional farewell from us, replete with nostalgia, camaraderie, a plethora of shoutouts, feedback and emails from our listeners, and a good dose of gratitude to Patreon supporters, listeners, and the whole Netrunner community. 
  • Thank you to each and every one of you who've joined us at any stage on this journey.  The podcast and the game are things we will treasure forever, and you have all helped us create memories we will never forget.

Peace and love

Wilfy, Jesse, Hollis and Brian (The TWA Crew)

April 22, 2018

On our agenda:

  • We've spoken about lots of topics over the course of the past 148 episodes, including some controversial topics, or things that we would like to see changed in the game. 
  • This week, we revisit some of our previous discussions to check in and see where they got us!
  • With the recent advent of sideboards in A Game of Thrones, another competitive FFG card game, we discuss whether it might be worth revisiting them in Android: Netrunner
  • We did a lot of advocacy for the Weyland Consortium back in 2015.  Where did that get us? Have things improved for our dark green friends?
  • Tournament structure, floor rules and judging are all things that FFG has made significant changes to over the years.  How are we looking these days?
  • We interview everyone's favourite Netrunner antagonist, Screambear, for the first time in audio form.  Long-time listeners will recall our previous text-only interview with the loudest ursus of all (https://thewinningagenda.com/2015/02/28/an-interview-with-screambear/)

Epsisode 143 - Boggs Worlds Special

December 15, 2017

On our agenda:

 

  • We sat down at Worlds 2017 with Android: Netrunner lead designer and developer, Michael Boggs, to talk all things Worlds and the future of Netrunner.
  • We got Michael's Worlds predictions - see how accurate he was at predicting the meta.
  • Michael talked us through the removed and restricted list; is he happy with how it's functioning, what changes does he anticipate, which cards was he a little more tentative about including, and would could be in the gun post-Worlds.
  • Apologies for the slight audio glitches on this one, we were recording in person and there was an intermittent noise that had to be edited out lest it blow your eardrums (thanks Radisson), so there are some sharp cutouts of audio semi-regularly throughout the episode.
