UPDATE (April 17):
So with the release of the new tournament rules I should let everyone know that the Imagine Store Championship will be classified as a competitive event (see the definition below, it’s still very beginner friendly). It will still be a normal swiss style tournament of about 4 rounds as well. There’s a sign up sheet at the front counter of the store or feel free to call or message them to put your name on there. We’re up to 6 already with plenty of room for more!
Competitive events require players to have general knowledge of a game’s rules. While experienced players will come to these events to compete for prizes, players should not be punished for their lack of understanding in the finer points of Android: Netrunner rules. Players can come to these events expecting a consistent experience from store to store. This tier includes Store Championships and unique, one-off events such as the X-Wing™ Wave 4 Assault at Imdaar Alpha event or the Android: Netrunner Chronos Protocol Tour.
And of course, here’s a LINK to the new FAQ and Tournament rules, for everyone to peruse.
