Hey all, I am very new to the game but I have been keeping up on the netrunner news and saw that FFG just announced Order and Chaos as their 3rd deluxe set. This leaves NBN as the only remaining faction to cover. Do you think they will do another deluxe set for just NBN or do you think that there is a possibility of a 4th runner faction being introduced? I think a fourth faction would be pretty unlikely since it would need a LOT of catching up to get to the current card pool size. What are you folks expecting, hoping for or worried about?

I am expecting an NBN/Nuetral runner and corp splashing. Or they could just give me a second helping of Jenteki.

I see three realistic possibilities:

1 - NBN + Neutral Runner Cards

2 - NBN + A smattering across runner factions

3 - NBN + Shaper, with the runner cycle starting over.

I think 1 and 3 are most likely, and for the reasons you state, I'm very skeptical that we'd get a new faction entirely.

I guess there is also a possibility they could release an NBN exclusive data pack or two.

The difference there is that the system is sold piecemeal. With the LCGs you further dilute the releases and slow the trickle to a drip. Not that it isn't possible given that they did a deluxe release for a new faction in Call of Cthulhu: The Card Game when they already had 7 other factions.

Personally I think it will be NBN and whichever runner they think needs the biggest boost.

Alternately, instead of an NBN pack, they could just release signs pointing at SanSan and Astrotrain that, in big bold letters, say "WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT FROM US?"

For me this is the highest possibility. The way the Deluxe Boxes are designed so far they are a stand alone product (with base box). you buy one and you have two decks to go and play and have fun with. I'm confident that FFG will keep it this way.

Then they better be planning to release 12 deluxe expansions, or I don't think my OCD will be able to take it.

NBN and 3 55/0 dual-faction runner identities (Anarch/Shaper, Criminal/Shaper, Anarch/Criminal) would be interesting.

The 4th Deluxe expansion will be NBN + runner and corp cards to support a new game mode, like 1 Corp vs 2 runner or 2vs2, in the same style as this deluxe for Star Wars LCG: http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_npm.asp?epmi=s&eidm=2...

Next deluxe will be 45 NBN cards (6 of which are IDs)+10 neutral corp cards. After all, NBN could really use the support.

Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

Seriously though, I'd like to see that be what happens, would be really cool to see an official 2v2 in a similar vein to 'the big sell-out', or challenge decks, or whatever.

I think if they were going to do that, it'd need to be its own expansion for it to work properly.

HEllo?

Hey, Netrunners! I come from the future.

...A new corp and a new runner faction are coming...

This was the only message I could send back in time. I thought of preventing wars, chaotic events in history, stopping the Titanic from hitting an iceberg, warning myself never to get invested in how they met the mother or even giving advice to help against the great alien invasion of 2017, but then I got my priorities right.

I only hope my presence here doesn't alter the past...

NBN + New faction of Corp owned Runners.
Their theme will be off the shelf/interchangeable tools. Nothing has any real value over time and you can always replace it when needed.

The flavor for them is already there on Security Testing.
"She was as good as Mr. Li said. The source machine had been compromised in under 24 hours. If a freelance operative could do that, the server clearly wasn't ready to endure Gagarin's legion of corp-owned runners."

I expect either NBN and Shaper, or NBN and a Neutral Runner ID with a large amount of influence (25?) and lots of new neutral Runner cards.

The Source, Lucky Find, Eden Shard, Donut Taganes, and Oracle May would all be in faction...

Whatever comes with NBN, it will be interesting watching how they solve the conundrum of boosting a faction which is already OP without killing the game altogether.

If I had my way, the fourth deluxe would bring errata'd Astroscripts and SanSans. Not happening.

NBN Deluxe box contents:

1*Astroscript Pilot Project
2*SanSan City Grid


There you go!

More likely, It'll be NBN and a load of neutral-with-influence-cost runner cards.

What FFG has been very good at doing with the Deluxe packs was to introduce concepts that fight with the factions' current strengths if they were strong, developing a new playstyle, or to bolster laggin factions. Look at HB - they got a couple of new ways to play - HBFA was dominating, then they developed into bioroids, glaciers, and CI combos, and custom biotics combos.

Shapers were lagging then they caught up with their tutor-on-the-run style.

Crims got a resource-heavy style that couldn't afford to keep tags as much as before.

Jinteki got tools to bolster their damage output and got gambling viable.

So if anything, I look forward to seeing how NBN diversifies

As for Weyland/Anarch - we can already see weyland getting a remote-centric style, and their advancement token stuff's getting bolstered - sure they'll still be the king of burning your house down, but that's no longer the only specialty.

Anarch's sorely needing a catchup, and looks like their virus game's gonna get mad again

So - exciting stuff!

The fourth deluxe box is almost two complete cycles away. While NBN is currently too strong, and probably will stay too strong for some time, I'm pretty sure it will be reined in during the next cylce. One way (Silver Bullets, Errata, Restricted Lists) or another (general slight power creep, soft counters).

Otherwise they will probaby try to boost other playstyles. For example, they could do something like this:

No fast advance cards.
No agenda that needs less than 4 advancements.
IDs (and accompanying cards) centered around tagging, trap play and glacier.

That way, the potential boost for FA would be minimized, although good new economy cards and ice would still help FA somewhat.
