Honestly, I'm thinking Custom Biotics's problem is - same as with every HB ID - not so much inherent lack of value of the ID itself as much as the long dark shadow of EtF spoiling the waters for everyone else.

>> No.48355322


To expend on that; you could always make pretty decent kill decks with CB, borrowing enough tagging from NBN, enough damage from W, and mixing in the click-shenanigans that are part of HB's color pie.

Those decks would always suffer comparison with tighter, non-specialized decks with a much more limited back-up killing plan and the ridiculous economy of EtF, whether they wer going for a glacier or FA approach.

What I'm wondering right now with the expended card pool for that ID is board control. But it's not on my priority list for testing.

>> No.48355883

Not him, but my biggest issue with CB is that having too much influence feels sort of pointless.

I mean, if you're going to port in half a yellow or green deck, why not just play yellow or green? Surely what tools HB has to offer you can just port in.

I tried Custom Biotics with Voting Machine Initiative and Victoria Jenkins. Wasn't the best, but sticking the runner with 3 or 2 click turns felt awesome. Bifrost Array was sick. Rezzing Vicky mid-turn just to fuck with play order was sick. Just a shame that the deck could be a bit too slow. Too many pieces.

I think the biggest strength of importing tagging and tag punishment into HB is the enormous amount of recursion, strong bursty operation economy, and the access to Domestic Sleepers and 6 3/2s that can be never advanced or threaten Midseasons.

Trash an installed Chrysalis with PolOp?

This seems dumb, but I can't see why not

>> No.48377487

A 2-strength Sentry with a single porous sub really isn't worth it. The card is almost completely useless outside of the surprise factor. I don't think any sane player would install it outside of some mindgame play, since it shouldn't ever tax the Runner more than a single credit.

And after testing it, it shouldn't really be used at all. I thought it was going to be a step between Shock and Snare, but what's important is the term "encounters". If they have any killer on board, it's virtually useless because of how weak it is. There are very few situations where it'll actually go off.

Actually other than Femme, Garrote, and Mimic, all other Killers need atleast 2 credits to break it. Granted, Mimic is practically everywhere, but it's sure to fire off more frequently in any rig without it, or atleast tax the runner more.

Also, a funny interaction is that Nero can nope right the fuck out when he accesses it, which means he's the only one who can jack out after a successful run.

Nero "Noooope" Severn - if we get more Ambush sentries, he'll be a good choice to be cautious indeed (sadly Archangel is a Code Gate, so there's a precedent for them not being Sentries while still being Ambushes)

>> No.48385028

Interestingly, Chrysalis doesn't have the Ambush subtype, unless the image my deckbuilding app has for it is outdated. Also I'm kinda hoping for an on access Barrier ice in Weyland, though given those usually only have ETR subs, I'm not sure where they would fit in a deck. A multi-access prevention method maybe? Alternatively, though unlikely, an RnD upgrade that forces an encounter when the Runner accesses ice.

>Chrysalis doesn't have the Ambush subtype
Yeah, looking back, I don't know why I thought that - it clearly is an ambush though, it's certainly not proper ice.

I could see multi-access prevention - "lol you hit a wall in R&D, can't see any more" - which might be nice (and might even apply anywhere, for ulitmate anti-multiaccess), though Weyland also have a nice line in sentries, to go the more "fucking runners up" route.

I'd quite like to see an upgrade that puts a sub in front of all the subs on an ice.
One of the worst parts about Weyland ice is that often you can facecheck it fine, unless there's a Hostile Takeover scored, or some other indication of nastiness.
Builder of Nations is some way to counteract that, though it is once per turn, and only on advanced ice (PAD factory and Satalite Grid make it awesome though).
An upgrade that adds something like "do 1 net damage", or "the runner loses 2c", or even just "the corp gains 2c" in front of all other subs would be really nice - turning all walls into mini-WoTs and just making stuff more expensive to break in general.
Also it'd give Street Magic some more justification.

Space ice is still space ice, I'm saying that casually dropping 1 damage every run that can't be broken is extremely taxing.

So I just noticed something funny for Mumbad Construction Co. in Builder of Nations. Did the Runner just Inside Job/DDoS past the single advanceable ice protecting a server, or put your credits low enough you can't rez it? If there's a rezzed ice after it, you can use MCC to put an advancement token on that ice instead! Advanced Data Raven shenanigans ahoy!

We already have an example with High-Risk Investment, but I must say I'm conflicted. While I think the game could use more cards to fight runners sitting on a pile of cash to snipe, it's not as if the archetype had been the most successful one.

And I would things things that force the hand of the runner into running and spending would probably be the best answer.

>> No.48393998

>things that force the hand of the runner into running and spending would probably be the best answer.

Well you can easily get them to run, but getting them to spend a non-trivial amount isn't easy - some way to punish a runner that just sits back until you try and score (Leela, Iain, some Sunny, anyone who's got Au Revoire-Turning Wheel up, possibly a few mill decks)

I know it's a strat that fails against Rush and FA, but I think there should be some way to stop a runner just snowballing and sitting on a mountain of cash by not running unless you try and score - I mean we see a bit in things like Hard-Hitting news, but it's one of only 3 that don't depend on successful runs

Alright, fuccbois, talk me out of this lunatic line of reasoning.

The UFAQ says that if you gain a click via temple of the liberated mind after the action phase of your turn as runner, that click will be unavailable to spend on an action until the start of your next action phase - so your turn ending does NOT evaporate the click, and it sticks around until the next turn. This is because nothing in the post-action-phase part of your turn says anything about killing any leftover clicks.

But nothing at the end of the action phase does that either. Not normally an issue, since the end of the action phase is only triggered once you're out of clicks.

Unless you play a Terminal event.

So. If you play a terminal event as click1 as corp, does your next turn have five clicks because the two unspent clicks will carry over? Talk me out of this batshit.

Paid abilities that require clicks can only be used as an action during the Action Phase if I'm recalling it correctly, so you can't use Arcology AI unfortunately.

I hope it does. I'd rather not 6 click turns happen regularly, or even 10 click runner turns, especially since 9 clicks are already a possibility. All in shaper too, goddamn.

Lets see

Sunny, Null, Silhouette, MaxX and Khan have all worked directly for some corp, even if it's not one of the Big Four

Two have worked for the government, Iain in the NSCA and Reina in the Army.
Given Reina hates Weyland with a passion, I suspect they may have had a hand there.

The Prof worked with HB for a while - I can imagine they chucked him a few Research Grants

Andy was riste, so she probably had some involvement with corps - though that might be inhereted.

Noise has probably worked for on of the smaller corps, and he may have pulled some sort of deal with Jinteki to get a clone of his own.

We know almost nothing of Exile, but an Exile-looking man is on the Creation and Control box, though that could just be a break-in

Adam, of course, has "worked" for HB

Fisk has his own mini-corp that we've seen almost nothing of

Random thought, but in an aggressively anti econ deck (if only with Reversed Account/dedicated Ceremony support), using Door to Door only once you've already gotten the tag to stick seems the way to go to me.

House Arrest

0 to rez 4 to trash 4 Influence Weyland

A current would make it a bit strong I think, since the only way to remove it would be another current or stealing an agenda. Atleast as an asset you can snipe or prevent it with PolOp or Councilman, or make a run to trash it.

You can only advance a card that can be advanced (obviously). Many cards that place advancement tokens on things require that the card be one that can be advanced. For example, Shipment from SanSan reads "Place up to 2 advancement tokens on a card that can be advanced."

However, not all cards that place advancement tokens have this requirement. PAD Factory reads "Place 1 advancement token on a card". It does not say that the card that you place the advancement token on has to be one that can be advanced, so that restriction does not apply and you can use it to put advancement tokens on anything.

The best deck to bring if you don't know the meta is one that works for you and is good. Especially if you don't know the meta, your decks need to be able to be decent in any match-up. Sometimes it comes down to knowing how to adjust your playstyle in certain match-ups, aka icing HQ against Crims and Jesminder. If you want to get really good, you'll learn to adjust to how your opponents adjust to you and etc. That's how Exile and Professor win SCs.

Hey, /tg/. My local group has a for-fun custom format where we vote on a handful of cards to spice things up during casuals.
One of the cards proposed recently was this:

>(Jinteki) General Cloning and Genetics Facility: Making a Better You
>Identity: Division • Deck: 45 • Influence: 10
>There can be one additional copy of each unique card with the same title active at a time.

And I was thinking about how I can abuse this. The obvious is having a pair of Caprice or Batty active at once, but I can't think of anything else that either works with multiple copies or really makes an impact. Jinteki doesn't really have enough economy to justify Sandburg (I think), and most of the nicer cards that can lead to some interesting setups (Director Haas, The Board) would eat up all the influence. Maybe Chairman Hiro, since having a -4 hand size could end the game?

Results of the day: 12 wins for 15 matches. Was riding the high tide of the probability wave. One loss a turn three Maker's Eye into two Vanity. The other two very solid piloting from my opponents.

Hilarious to play, most games over before turn ten. Favorite kill's been the Fast Track Government Takeover install Junebug and supercharge. Was a high risk play, but knowing the opponent well helped a lot.

Nice, thanks for sharing.


I find it kinda weird they would add to the repertoire of cards that helps invalidate Nero before he even got his time to shine.
As noted previous thread, nice that it's a valid Leviathan target. Still trying to see where I would want that. Right before a Fetal AI looks like murder.

The thing was Nero could facecheck in relative impunity and not need to bother with set up, saving up on Fairy uses, dispensing of Snitch .slotting

Sentries are still a much nastier prospect, but if all the nasty ice were sentries then it'd be even more impossible to hit Nero at all with ice - god knows, ice fires little enough as it is.

Lady, David, and the fact that Corroder is so damn cheap, both to use and to splash

The fact that they can't punish a facecheck (other than Thorns, a couple of bioroids, sometimes Galahad and technically Orion) also makes them pretty low value - you'd expect a Fire Wall to burn a little, wouldn't you?

I'd say breakers, especially fracters, are far too efficient for 1/1 to be an appropriate cost/strength for the weakest type of ice going

I sure as hell am looking forward to Mausolus, and I hope that it's part of a set.
If I'm being really optimistic, I'd hope that it's the Lycan of the set, not the Wormhole - let weyland's big sentries and barriers take their usual positions in the ice rating vis-a-vis code gates and have them be really good.
I do realise this is both unlikely and greedy, but even the nastiest w̶e̶y̶l̶a̶n̶d̶ ice tends not to do much these days

I see. I do wonder how they'll plan to increase the capabilities of Barriers, just checked through my deckbuilder app and the number of Barrier ice (30+) is practically half of Code Gates (50+) and Sentries (60+). They might've accidentally barred themselves from potential design space due to the efficiency to get through thing.

>Mausolus as a set
I'd love that too, but unless they plan on making Flashpoint a Weyland-centric cycle and go past the usual 13-14 cards(?) per faction, it's pretty unlikely. Especially since there's maybe 3-5 unknown Weyland cards left.

By that metric, no ICE matters ever.

>Plus barriers always were over-costed because the designers never took into account how easy it was to break them and how unpunishing they were for face checking.

That's their whole point though. They're supposed to be the ones that stop the runner. Which is not a small thing.

I don't think I agree with over-costed either. Without going into the aberration that is Eli; Let's go with a neutral comparison:
- Bastion is 4 to rez/3to break by Corroder. Cobra 3 to rez/2 to break by Mimic or Garrote.
- Wall of Thorns 8 to rez/breaks for 5 by Corroder. Ichi 2.0 8 to rez 6 to break by Garrote (but then it's a bioroid, Next Gold 8 to rez/4 to break by Garrote).

I think the problem with Barriers is not so much the break costs as much as the fact that Corroder is a no-brainer.

With other types, you need to give thought to your rig and the meta when choosing the breaker. With Barriers, Corroder is almost always a decent go-to. It's very rarely a bad choice.

>> No.48449851


To expend on that: there were times when using Morningstar was actually a pretty decent choice, Eli was everywhere, hardly anyone was playing ICE that was not pure gear check and therefore not 6+ strength.

Hardly anyone played Morningstar though, without disregarding MU, mostly I think because of the tempo loss at the start of the game. But also I think because people extend a lot more thought into the Killer/Decoder set up (well the later when Yog.0 stopped being the other auto-answer). Because the ICE they break are not safe to face-check for sure, but also I think because the breakers on offer are more constraining. Corroder is always a decent choice. A good enough one. It doesn't kill your early game aggression AND you can afford for it not to be the optimal choice for the meta because you made sure (had to really) the other breakers were optimized instead, in a balancing act.


Typo, Cobra was obviously chosen because it had the same rez cost as Bastion.

>> No.48449997

Makes me wonder how they managed to avoid this with Gordian Blade, since it's less of an autoinclude and the other decoders do get picked from time to time. I guess due to the combination of the install and influence cost? If so, maybe Corroder will get put into the MWL? I'd be of two minds about that if that happens, while it would introduce some variety into fracter choices, having another Anarch core set card in the MWL just feels bad.

Yeah, I feel that corroder's omnipresence is something that should be adjusted to via ice, rather than by even more orange cards on the MWL - it doesn't apply the same constraints on design that other breakers on the list do, and it's not hyper-efficient like others.

Make more 5 or less mutlisub ice to see more Sherman and Morning Star, for example

Yeah, was just a joke

>unless they plan on making Flashpoint a Weyland-centric cycle and go past the usual 13-14 cards(?) per faction
At the end of Mumbad there's 105 HB, 106 Jinteki, 109 Weyland and 110 NBN cards, but it's also clear that there's a lot more chaff in Weyland than anywhere else - and despite all his talk about there being viable decks in every ID, Damon has said he recognises Big W's predicament, and said something like "it doesn't matter what I think, if people perceive the faction to be shit, that's the reality of the faction for the game".

So ideally it'd be a few really good cards, but a slightly larger number of cards, 15 or 16, might have to do.

Thematically at least, this cycle should be a big deal for Weyland, and some of their cards are showing that... but others really aren't - CI fund will need some godly support/reason to be played if it's not going be instant binder fodder.
Some sort of Asset protection would be gold for Weyland, given how good their assets could be if they weren't so cheap to trash.

>> No.48451136

Going by Spiderweb, Hive, Tyrant and Curtain Wall though, it's likely that they think multisub barriers should be expensive to rez and weak in strength for some reason. Maybe there's a perception that ETR is a strong subroutine? I guess it is, since it's a must break for the runner to continue the run, but they might be overplaying it's importance a tad bit.

A random thought, but a 3 rez 0 strength Barrier with a single ETR sub with the requirement "The Runner cannot use programs that only has the Icebreaker and Fracter subtypes to break subroutines on this ice." is hilariously overpowered.

I predict there's going to be a card that lets you place credits onto a face up card/asset or move them around, due to the 6 credits on C. I. Fund requirement. There's no way it's just a "less money in my pool to weaken the runner" thing. Or perhaps a reverse Sandburg is incoming?

>> No.48451221

>Yeah, was just a joke

Was likely, but better to make sure around here.

>Makes me wonder how they managed to avoid this with Gordian Blade

Other Decoder options are situationally better, and their constraint is manageable enough. Compare the difference in set up constraint going from Gordian Blade to Reflector + stealth support with the one going from Corroder to Blackat+ stealth support. Hell, look at Passport's success compared to other central only breakers. And that's one thing too: every faction has something card or combination of cards that is considered "good enough", though not perfect, in faction for other breakers. Not so much for fracters (closest we have was Lady - though now MWL-ed, and Inti+ AI in shaper).

I don't think the MWL could really deal with Corroder, agree with >>48450501 on that point.

I'm far from convinced this is something that can be addressed by ICE, though. Not ICE alone at least. We already had situations where ICE selection made Corroder a rather poor choice (with my example up there, remember when double Eli on R&D was all the rage? That's a six credits difference *per run* in in favor of Morningstar), and still it didn't make people care enough to play alternatives.

The hard thing is for designer to offer other factions Fracters that have significant limit to maintain fraction balance, yet still manage to hit a set up/breaking efficiency plateau that makes them desirable.

And that's a tough nut to crack.

>> No.48451255

>Maybe there's a perception that ETR is a strong subroutine?

I don't know about strong, but if you plan on scoring, it's a *vital* subroutine.

Hey, this doesn't seem like that bad of a card. What if it read CI Fund
CI Fund: 6 rez, 2 trash. At the start of your turn, gain 2 credits.

That would be a card worth considering, but not really playable on its own since you're out 4 credits if the runner gets it the turn after you rez, plus its really cheap to trash. Instead its worded such that you never lose more than 2 credits and don't need to pay in all at once, which makes it pretty good for a secondary glacier server. Not quite an adonis campaign, but worth considering, especially in faction.

Of course campaign style cards have gotten support, mostly from breaker bay grid, while CI fund style cards have not. Moving credits around would be worth considering, as would an upgrade with recurring credits for paid abilities.

In fact, Weyland has the most cards with credit costing paid abilities [HB: Panic Button and Corporate Troubleshooter, Jinteki: Georgia Emelyov and Zaibatsu Loyalty, NBN: Early Premiere, Weyland: MCC, Executive Boot Camp, Zealous Judge, Sealed Vault, and CI Fund] and three of those cards are pretty good on their own. So don't count out CI Fund until we've seen if they support it. Something like
Simon Emelyov: 3 rez, 2 trash
2 recurring: Use these for paid abilities on cards in or protecting this server.
2: Move Simon to another server.
Would go a long way to supporting CI fund if you were playing even one of the other paid ability cards. Plus Georgia and Corporate Troubleshooter are both reasonable options for a Weyland.

>> No.48451848

I think you're right in that it's playable in a second glacier server, especially if it's daunting enough that the runner might not bother running it. The only problem might be PolOp, but Crisium on HQ can solve that. Or atleast delay the Runner while the Corp picks up on the tell.

>> No.48451902

There's just something about it - the 0 cost, 1 inf, 2 trash - it's telling me there's something that we're missing, probably because we don't know the other cards in the pack that interact with it, other than Beth Kilrain-Chang

The fact that it has to sit around for a turn is a bit of a bummer though

A way to pay for card abilities (a la omni drive I guess) would be a pretty cool sysop ability (also nice with Tsurugi, or something else like it that the corp "turns on")

I would like something to protect (or get revenge for the trashing of) all these cheap assets though - something that represents everyone being on high alert, so you get a Hostile Infrastructure with tags instead of net, or events that can be played only if the runner has trashed stuff last turn

>> No.48451931

>Not quite an adonis campaign

*Far* from it even. Adonis pays you every turn. This only pays when you cash in. That's a very significant difference.

My main take on the card for now is this: it hints - and we've seen some runner cards going that way though not enough in my opinion - at the game offering the runner options that makes the corp sitting on too much cash a significant liability.

Sandburg is a thing, sure, but when your Sandburg gets trashed and your money fund powers the runner more than it does you, what do you do until you've pulled the next Sandburg? You either burn through cash installing/rezzing things - but then it makes getting the next Sandburg harder to pull - or you put it on the fund, where's it's not fueling the runner and it grows so that the next Sandburg becomes even worse.

The fund is actually a way to temporarily get rid of liquidity. But then the tempo on that card is really weird.

As much as want it to happen, as I hope it will, I'm not seeing the corp playing in low econ range ever becoming a significant strategy. Would love to be proven wrong.

I'm actually reminded of a custom card from a good while ago someone made that I liked enough to mock up in GRNDL - pic related would certainly encourage CI fund/Sealed Vault plays.

Given that the cycle has Titan going through a major crash, a bailout themed card isn't the wildest thing in the world

Though there's still a problem in that you can't move money across whenever, and it costs 2 credits and the use of the fund if you want the money back

If any corp is going to be able to play in low econ, its Weyland.

>> No.48452164

>If any corp is going to be able to play in low econ, its Weyland


That's something a lot us I think have been experimenting with since at least BWBI. The issue is that so far there hasn't really been anything that makes being able to do so that much more desirable given the associated constraints. Sure, you can do it, but just striving for being rich is much easier, and in the end better.

The best it's offered us till now is better ways to get around anti-econ runner strategies. Hasn't been enough.

But I'm really liking the idea of this being a thing that works decently well, and is desirable enough. Anything that expands the game as it it's being played is good as ar as I'm concerned.

Most of the money comes from Technical Writer I think, since the worst part of it is usually the multi-install in a single turn, with maybe other contributions from stuff like Tech Trader, Daily Casts, etc. Disrupting the Runner is obviously the plan, though I haven't a clue how, and the most effective ones - Corporate Town and Ibrahim Salem (atleast in my mind) - requires an agenda forfeit and needs to be protected, and even then the effect is temporary due to LARLA.

Navi-Mumbai Grid is useful tech, since they can't clone chip or spy camera for sharpshooter or extra credits. Marcus Batty still does work, he skips the Polop window. A well timed chronos project can wreck her as well.

Navi and Batty aren't permanent solutions however, they will work once so if you got 2 agendas out before she's set up, you're good.

The hard counter would be to rush out anti-tag (NACH, 2+ Decoy, Qianju predictions, Jesminder + Forger). You could also be cheeky and just take it for Obelus.

You can also slow down scoring like >>48459910 said. On a side note, I was under the impression that the woman in the art was "The Source", since she's pulling information from a naive Thomas.

The real weakness of the combo is the telegraph. Either they're sitting on a 2-counter Breaking News (which you can expose or hit safely) or they absolutely won't be able to take advantage of those tags. Losing 1-2 points off EoI isn't necessarily game-losing, especially if it's happening early like you're describing.

You can also just avoid scoring until you're set up enough to scope out and run on News. They can't EoI if you have no agendas.

But here so far the *game* has barely lost players. It's just that they don't play together anymore. Group forked into several mini-groups separated by card-pool and play profile, and each organize their small game nights instead of all playing together in the local club.

I've used Haas in a Jeeves/Toybox deck, and I've flirted with Victoria in a Bioroid/Login Protocol build.

Friend of mine played that Jenkins/Voting Machine Initiative/EKP build.

Not reliable enough, but when it hits you in full force, it's extremely oppressive.

That sounds hilarious.
Though I have heard of a deck that chucks a load of one pointers into archives and rezzes the board right before they get stolen to kill the runner with PE/Argus/Punitive

The tats and dreads I think are just fashion, but the clothes and shoelessness are an important part of the look she needs to maintain

When asked about favourite characters, along with Nero and Reina, Stone had this to say about Victoria:
>I love the idea that Victoria rose from a small local news program to the heights of running NBN. I love that she is engaged in an internal power struggle with the president of the board, and she runs the multi-planet conglomerate with such style and grace that no one knows that one slip could mean the death of her career... and—because this is Android—it could potentially mean her literal death.

She needs to look like she handles everything effortlessly, because she's basically on a tightrope, and she can be cut

Is there a way to filter by subroutine count in the db? I'm looking for ICE with 3+ subs, but I don't see a way of doing it.

Sadly not, as far as I know

That it does - and it probably looks even better in-universe, given how NBN dominates in advertising, in Hollywood and, if you take Harischandra's ID effect as them using their full immersion recstudio technology to read the runner's mind when snapshot of/connection to the runner's brain in full sim on the net, in leveraging what they can read from someone jacked in.

The fact that she canonically used to be a model and TV host doesn't hurt either - nor does the "rejuve" treatment is available in the setting (Jack Weyland's had it) - I'd bet she's a fair bit older than she looks

I actually have something similar. Hostile Takeover and Profiteering net me stupid amounts of credits no matter what happens. Either I get +7/+15 for scoring or the runner is setting up a monster Stock Buyback for me, but most of the time it's both since they can't steal it all.
And all those credits just set up Sandburg so my servers are protected by multiple 10+ strength Spiderwebs and Tour Guides.

>> No.48474559



At least I will lose with style.

>> No.48475955

Hmmm... a breaker suite that is pretty efficient but gets less and less so the more ICE there is in a server?

Or the contrary? A breaker suite that is cheap to install, but not much for efficiency, but gets better and better the more ICE installed?

Would that be interesting/fit a worthwhile niche for the game?

>> No.48476144


The first category is pretty much the stealth breakers (particularly vs stacked sentries). The second is new I guess

>> No.48476196

>The first category is pretty much the stealth breakers

I was more thinking from a purely economical standpoint, but yeah, definitely fits a similar spot.

>> No.48476244

Let's see, that would be pretty easy to do. Split it across faction, maybe like dog breakers so shaper gets the fracter etc, but the basic template would be

X is the number of ice protecting this server.
For the first
X credits: +X Strength
X credits: Break X Subroutines

For the second
2 credits: +X strength
2 credits: Break X subroutines

The first may work better as an AI, though keep it out of Anarch, ice destruction would combo too hard.

>> No.48476345


Thinking about it, I like the second one. With proper base strength and install cost it could make for an interesting Crim breaker... the less ICE there is, the more the corp has to fear bypass shenanigans, but the more ICE there is, the more efficiently the runner breaks them.

>> No.48476675

Alright then, that kind of makes sense. Let's say, 3 influence, all get 2 base strength, 3 4 and 5 install for killer, fracter, decoder? They're big rig criminal breakers, but you have all those nice criminal tools to get through the early game. Not sure on the exact stats, but you're right that criminal works best on that front.

For the first, I think it could work in Adam. That or neutral with influence, but it needs something to keep Anarchs away.

Maybe fix the first one at X credits + 2 str/break 2 subs. I was going to say +1, break 1, but that would make it not worth it for any 2 ice server, which is pretty common.

I have in Weyland. With Consulting visit being a thing, I can get away with putting one-offs that will still reliably land when needed.

This has actually worked as a decent surprise, as no one slots it.

That being said, I'm thinking tagging + trash is still going to be the go-to solution for at least NBN. And a reason why the wheel is still going to lose in popularity to interfaces as long as they don't rotate.
