People usually finish their deck description with thanks to the organisers. I will start with it as SOCRX was really a long tournament and @Sanjay and @lostgeek sacrificed a lot of their free time so the rest of us could have fun. Shout out to you, guys!

This was my second online SOCR tournament and I enjoyed it a lot. The tempo (one match per week) is just fine and gives you time to think about next match and proper side-boarding strategy. You also get to know (at least a bit) the other players because you have to communicate with them in order to find time window that matches their activities and respects the time difference.

As a runner I chose Leela because criminals are my favourite factions and I also played her during summer at standard tournaments. And she carried me all the way to the finals. In the swiss she went 4-1 loosing only to Blue Sun piloted masterfully by @mbzrl who was using Lady Liberty to avoid triggering Leela´s ability. Then he bounced it back so he could start gathering counters once again. Nice tech. In the cut she went 8-0. Being the higher seed and be always able to choose runner was a strong advantage for me as the runners just seemed better in the given card-pool. Nevertheless, all the opponents played really well. I still vividly recall my finish against Akira when I managed to snatch the winning agenda with all my breakers already in the bin. What a nerve-wrecking match.

As for the card choices there is really nothing special here. Classic Leela. I side-boarded always heavily. I remember that against Sanjay´s IG I changed around 20 cards. I was so afraid he would play just regular glacier and half of my deck would be useless:). Luckily this did not happen. The trickiest corporation ID to face was probably Blue Sun. I even tried to include the E-box console in two games to dodge Punitive Counterstrike. It also helped with memory so I could slot Stargate to leave agendas in the bin and bounce installed cards at my terms. Later I switched back to Paragon as the tempo gain from it is just too good.

At the end I would like to thank all the participants as well, since you guys made this tournament pleasure to attend. Greatest community in the game industry!
