>What would you do to make Criminals relevant again?

Give them a workable AI breaker or reusable bypass effect. Anarch is strong right now from having Eater and Faust allowing them a bunch of extra deck space for other things.

Security Nexus is the kind of thing that Criminal needs in faction to really become a powerhouse again.

That said I think the devs are scared of Crim becoming big again since that will just push us back into the Account Siphon forever meta.

considering something like 3 of 10 Weyland cards for the cycle have been spoiled

I'm not going to comment, because there's not enough information. Essentially, FFG is going to fix Weyland in Mumbad or I am quitting.

>> No.44442345

Mumbad was the last cycle designed by Lukas, just before Damon takes over. And Lukas did say that he hope that Damon fixes whatever is Weyland missing. So I wouldn't put many expectations on Mumbad Weyland really.

>> No.44442525

What might a Criminal AI breaker look like? Alias/Breach/Passport in one? Something that works like Knight or Femme Fatale?

>> No.44442541

Consider Executive Boot Camp, Worlds Plaza and Surat City Grid. They appear to be reviving the Amazon Industrial Grid discount idea, which could be interesting. Turning the shadowy megacorp into an open info dare. You'll lose a fair amount of bluffing potential, but then Weyland hasn't had good bluffing shenanigans in a while. It seems to do work for glacier Weyland, I suppose, so I'm tentatively optimistic.

>> No.44442716


>> No.44442718

NBN: The control archetype will move from T3 to maybe T1.5. Aryabhata Tech enables the entire "Trace Storm" deck archetype and I think will shoot it to T1 easily.

Weyland: No fucking idea.

Jinteki: Does not seem like much is going to change for them. None of their spoiled cards are really deck defining. Their 4-3 has the best chance of effecting their meta.

HB: Bioroids are getting massive love. Jeeves is hugely powerful and will be showing up in most decks likely. Lateral Growth is a massive boost to early game ICE play. Over all most their decks are just going to get better. Some of their new ICE really push the super server focused play with nasty upgrades.

Corp Overall: I think Corp play is going to slow down. Mumbad has a fair number of more control focused cards and I think that will have a big effect on the Runner meta over all.


Anarch: Mill style play is going to get more options. ICE kill focused decks are getting a little love so I am thinking that "no" Breaker Mill decks are going to become a thing.

Crim: Does not seem to be getting anything really playable. Political Operative is the best spoiled card for them but even then it will be splashed into other decks if it ends up being a major thing.

Shaper: So far we have just seen action compression/utility cards so I am not sure where they are heading with it. The Price of Freedom will likely get space.

Runner Overall: Mostly it feels like Runners are getting cards to deal with Rotation in 2017. Many of the cards we are seeing are alt options to popular cards in the meta right now. I think at most the Runner meta will shift to deal with new control focused Corp decks (mostly NBN).

>> No.44442719

I think Femme Fatale is the criminal AI breaker. Straight up bypass a single piece of ICE.

>> No.44442770

Use once per turn
5(+) credits: Bypass a piece of ice

But I think AI and recursion are just not criminal things - are there any non-crim bypass cards?
That seems to be what they got to make up for it, along with expose, maybe (though like AI, there's neutral expose)

>> No.44442794

I'd think something like:
x: Bypass currently encountered ICE. You can not access more then one card during this run.
X is the STR for the ICE plus 2.

>They are getting the shit end of the "color pie".
Honestly, I think the problem is the other way around
Both the criminal and weyland specialities are, in general terms, very good:
Weyland's ice makes them money and criminals get paid for successful runs.
Weyland doesn't have to install new ice, it can just make its existing ice better, while criminals can ignore ice completely with bypassing
Weyland specialise in destroyers, while criminals have some of the best killers in the game
Both sides use denial tactics - derezzing ice can be as bad as destroying it, while weyland uses trashing (and flatling) effects
Criminals can get things without having to run the server its in, and Weyland's idea of a defensive upgrade just straight up doesn't let the runner hit it
Both have a common flaw in expensive cards, but are great at making money
Both have some tutoring, and prefer that to just searching by drawing

All these are strong things, that if given just a few too many better-than-average cards could be ridiculously OP, and as you say, the front loading with some seriously strong cards, which take up huge amounts of influence, doesn't help them - their cards are weak because the things they do are strong

>> No.44443177

Political Operative and Councilman are great for the runner.

That indirectly fucks over NBN (Keegan), Jinteki (Batty, Caprice) and HB (Ash). Weyland... doesn't have the greatest anti-run sysops. Except for the Twins, but whatever.

>> No.44443219

The main problem with buffing ICE is that ICE is just so easy to remove that most the time it is a pointless waste of time.

>> No.44443231

Councilman works on Keegan Lane but Political Operative does not. Same with Batty.

>> No.44443280


Why wouldn't Political Operative, if you already have him installed?

The runner's trash abilities take precedence over the corp's trash abilities during the runner's turn.

Is there something in the timing I'm missing?

True that, usually when Keegan and Batty are rezzed they are immediatelly trashed. No window for political moves.
Drive-By is still good though.

>> No.44443295


Patch should have been printed "+2 STR, if hosted ice is trashed, deal 2 meat damage to runner." Maybe price it at 1 instead of 0.

>> No.44443327

Yeah, you're missing that the rezzing and abilities all happens in the same window, and it doesn't go back to the runner until the Corp has finished.

That actually sounds great. I don't know if Meat, but something for sure.

>> No.44443425

Yes and no.

>Weyland makes existing ice better and Crims bypass
Advancing ice doesn't have a big enough payoff when ice destruction is so prevalent. The amount of investment for the amount of returns is frankly awful. Criminal bypass is nice, but limited in the form of Inside Job and... Feint? Femme, certainly, but 9c is no joke. Admittedly Femme is really good, and I like it and Inside Job very much, but bypass isn't quite as flexible as it needs to be for optimal effect.

>Weyland destroyers, Criminals killers
I like Weyland's specialisation in destroyers, but apart from Archer, the rest aren't too good. Nebula was a nice try, Lycan was overcosted, Grim isn't even Weyland. I feel like Grim could have been Weyland. As for Crims, the thing is that even the best killers in the game still aren't very good. Faerie's great though, and I'm fond of Mongoose. Mimic dominates in tandem with David or Sharpshooter + Clone Chips.

>denial tactics
Derezzing is cute, but destruction is currently easier and more impactful. It negates the possibility of the Corp regaining their tempo and rezzing again. I guess Weyland's Power Shutdown is pretty good, I'll give them that, but the necessity of trashing R&D hurts.

>Weyland's defensive upgrades
Are practically nonexistent. Off the Grid is superb if you have the money, but if you're behind, it's rubbish. Contrast with Caprice, who is equally good whether you're ahead or behind, and Ash, who is a decent tax when you're behind and gets better the further you pull ahead. Twins could have been more.

>great at making money
This was once true. It no longer isn't.

Shapers tutor better and raw draw better than Crims. Weyland has Atlas, which is great but relies on you being able to overadvance your Atlas to begin with (unless you're Titan).

All in all, they could be better, especially given the raw power being given to the other factions. Just look at Anarchs and NBN.

>> No.44443427

>such a great IP.

>> No.44443884

Somewhat missing my point - it's not that they're things that they do and are good *right now*, it's that those are things that are generally strong, which is part of the reason the actual cards doing those things aren't so great

Clearly, the balance isn't right - just strong effects is no good if the overall card is crap, but the strength of their sections of the "colour pie" is very high (though HB's is probably the best in terms of that on the corp side)

>> No.44444157

>What would you do to make Criminals relevant again?

An AI that forbids you to steal when used, but allows access ?

An AI that allows the corp to rez a card ignoring all costs if used during a run, once the run is over ?

Caïssa like cards that allow you to bypass ICE on which they're hosted, limited by ICE types.

Sneakdoor Beta from remotes, forcing the corp into having strong remotes, or an opened HQ.

>Caïssa like cards that allow you to bypass ICE on which they're hosted, limited by ICE types.
I like the sound of that one.

>> No.44444280

What about an AI that only allows you to access cards that have been revealed/exposed this turn.

>> No.44444460


Resource Connection Unique
Once per run, you may bypass a piece of ICE previously exposed in the turn.

I love the idea of giving expose a secondary use/power.


I think trashing prevention would be stronger than the damages.

>> No.44444599

I think a requirement to have broken the ice on the turn you install it might make such a program more balanced - a big cost would also do the job, though that's a less attractive option - perhaps limited use, through counters or trash-to-use?

I think "install only on a [ice type] only after breaking all the subroutines of that ice during a single encounter this turn" would work well with the Cloud breakers and Grappling Hook

>> No.44444716

>This was once true. It no longer is.

Been playing Spark Agency a lot before my my thankfully soon to been ended involuntary Netrunner abstinence month, and it made me think about something.

It seems to me not only, as I've been saying since the Genesis cycle and I think it still holds, Weyland's taxing game isn't up to par - which I was originally OK with, given it was more NBN shtick in Core, Wyland is sometimes even struggling right now to *make* money when compared to other corps.

We've reached the point where almost anything you might want to do with Weyland from a strategic standpoint, you can do better with other corps really. Especially NBN. But not limited.

What does Weyland still have right now? Rush? but then those are still almost influence neutral really... Some glacier builds I guess?

There are bits and pieces of interesting builds that *are* Weyland, but still nothing conclusive by a conjunction of missing pieces and overcautious card design I would say.

Then some dude claimed he was felt his wife was raped by some dude hitting on her during the down time at a match (she was too scared to just say she was with someone and ask him to go away I guess) and it just blew up.

How was your last match of the year /tg/?

My last match of the year was a friendly match between my Quetzal Faust and Grail Chronos Protocol against ADAM and Foodcoats. Pretty cool match to end the year, very close both of them.
Some highlights.
My turntable wasn't needed but I was ready to swap any GFI he managed to score. Faust along with 2 early Spoilers I installed that got me a couple trashed agendas from R&D carried me to victory. The other 2 agendas were liberated by painstakingly going through a 4-5 deep server made with ABT, thrice. (First time was an aggressive secretary that trashed a early Medium). Turing, Heimdall, and Ichi among others. God bless D4v1d and E3.

Corp side, I completely forgot that Adam players try to mulligan for Public Sympathy, so when first turn I played Targeted Marketing I named Sure Gamble instead of Public Sympathy. My mistake, Good lesson.
Regretably how I set up Batty for Lancelot to trash his Mimic, but mid-way completely forgot about it. He was low on credits so in the end I didn't need to use Batty at all. Managed to score the last Future Perfect when he used Infiltration to peek at the card and then run 3rd click, disabling his Always Be Running perk in the process.

My friend and I are both still new to the game, and all we've got is the core and the first two deluxe expansions. I was running as Ken Tenma, versus Harmony Medtech. My opening hand was:
Early Bird
Dirty Laundry
Daily Casts
Theophilius Bagbiter

I decided to throw caution to the winds and play everything. Early bird to run on R&D (didn't help), got the credit back because of Ken Tenma's ability. Dirty laundry run on a remote server that turned out to be an upgrade that I couldn't afford to trash. After that I played daily casts, followed by a Legwork run on HQ. Harmony Medtech chose (or maybe couldn't afford) to rez the ice, so the run was successful and I got to access 3. If I remember correctly, the first card was Shi.Kyuu, and I had to take the negative point. The next card was House of Knives, so that balanced out Shi.Kyuu. The third card was an ice or something. Finally, with my last 3 credits I played Theophilius Bagbiter. That left me with zero cards, zero credits, zero max hand size, and zero points.

I still won.

Let me get this straight, you're trying to get first place in a league playing a 2014 archetype that relies heavily on topdecking back when Clot wasn't a thing?

Tbh I'm not considering Foodcoats cos I spent a month and a half with it prepping for Nationals. Kinda sick of it. My meta is pretty jank, which is why I wasn't too concerned about Clot.

-6 inf if you run 3 Clonechips and 3 Parasites.
This entirely changes how I value ICE.

NBN FA is hit fairly hard but I think it will just push people into tag based Psychographics decks over Biotic Labor decks.

Eli 1.0 will likely not see play much anymore. It is just not worth 3 effect inf in most decks. It does rise the value of NEXT ICE in HB as well.

Overall I think the biggest deal is Clone Chip. It is such a core card to so many Runner decks that losing it will change things massively. Might even make Rig Killer decks better.

I like it - not sure all of them were completely necessary (San San, for example), but it doesn't seem like a terrible way to do it

I see what you're aiming for in your breaker suite. All keep their strength for the duration of a run, so you don't have to boost them twice for the same strength during a run.
Problem is, they are all pretty expensive to boost to begin with. So you must be having a hard time keeping your econ afloat.
Cloak is an odd choice. You're not playing stealth, so this is a recurring credit just for the sake of it. Personally I'd use cyberfeeders instead, it's also less influence.
A single console is also not common, usually you want 2-3 consoles to see it as soon as possible.

Trying to make shittier cards playable by hurting the good cards isn't the best way to encourage more card diversity imo. Now that the rotation has been declared, they could just print better cards to get ready for the cycling out of older cards. Something about having to "pay' influence for in-faction cards seems kinda dumb too, especially considering how signature to a faction some of these cards are, like Desperado or Parasite.

Battering Ram was here before Lady. It might be not "2 to install, 1 MU", but it breaks consecutives barriers only second best to Morning Star. It ties in breaking costs with Corroder for all except gearcheck barriers, and you can just play Inti for that.

Lady is just like Battering Ram. It fills a niche and requires support to work properly. And we all know that Shaper is the toolbox faction with a program for every niche.

So yes, Shaper has business having the best barrier breaker in this case.

>How was your last match of the year /tg/?

Last game of the year; Kit vs Helium-3 Gagarin, lost on a 6 cards deep dig with two agendas. Expected, but disappointing (weirdly, my best match up of the night was against Valencia, which I actually beat twice).

Then Next vs Apex. One of the most fun I've had in a while. Corp started with 3 ICE in hand, managed to score an early Accelerated Beta Test with three ICE revealed, and then I Apocalypsed. Tight rush match, but I managed to keep the pressure and ended up winning 7-2, with arguably one really lucky score mid game.

All in all, great night very heated but polite debate about the new rulings, with as almost invariably a clear competitive/non-competitive divide.

Keyhole Val VS PE Jinteki using the NAPD MWL rules.

Had to remove my Desperados but ended up keeping all my Clone Chips and Parasites. Trying Box-E as my replacement.

They got out a early Agenda while I was setting up my DDOS attack. Ended up getting 3 turns of 3-4 Keyhole runs a turn early game. By the time they got RnD locked down it was too late and I just had to do Keyhole Pokes till I loaded up the final Agenda in Archives.

I tired cutting the Clone Chip but it is just too central to the "Draw it all and let Clone Chip sort it out" play style this deck needs. Losing Desperado sucks MASSIVELY since it allowed me to just go full dick mode on remotes.
I toyed with the idea of Grimoire some and then maybe tossing in 2 Cache or something. But I am not sure if it'd be worth it.

Oh, I wasn't dissing Box-E. I love the extra hand and memory, specially along with Faust to keep an even larger hand. I just thought that the extra run might help a lot for Keyholing.

In your case I agree that it synergies nicely with Amped Up. Not sure about Dirty Laundry without Desperado, but it probably helps keeping the pressure.

I have nothing to add to your deck, just that I'll probably try it myself next week because it looks fun. Probably adding Mimics because Architect is too much loved to be dropped just for the extra influence.

There's links in the thread, but I'll sumarise:

There's a list of cards, the NAPD Most Wanted List.
Each copy of a card on the list reduces your influence by 1, to a minimum of 1, before influence is checked, so if the card is out of faction it essentially costs an extra influence, but this also means that in-faction cards can cost influence.

Runner cards are:
Cerberus “Lady” H1
Clone Chip
Pre-Paid Voice PAD

Corp cards are:
Architect )
AstroScript Pilot Program
Eli 1.0
NAPD Contract
SanSan City Grid

The "to a minimum of 1" rule means the professor gives 0 shits about this and can continue as normal, but PPVP Kate and insta-parasite spam are dead

On insta-parasite archetype (yeah, it went all the way up to be considered an archetype now).
With 3 clone chips, 3 parasites it will effectively cost 12 influence. Add 3 datasuckers and that's 15 flat for shapers.
Anarchs have it a bit harder. Going this way means that it's either Aesop+Cache, or clone chips.

>> No.44501195


Honestly, my biggest difficulty with evaluating the influence of the MWL is not so much how it impacts my lists directly as much as how it will impact the lists it will face.

Sure, the list doesn't force me to change any card of, say, my Faust builds, but then the alterations in ICE composition the list can trigger might change the value proposition of the builds anyway.

That being said, we're still in discussion about whether we'll implement the list for club play. No is winning so far, and I hope it comes to pass.

On an unrelated note, I find it hilarious to see people bitching about Security Nexus after all the claims of it being unplayable over-costed shit when it was released.

On the one hand, I see your point, on the other, for the most part it's not really individual cads but troublesome synergies he has to deal with.
