Disappointing ability to be honest, I was hoping for more interaction with clicks.



These look like they have MASSIVE POTENTIAL. At least, will destroy any big ICE strat like Emergency Shutdown and Femme.

I wonder if the Deep Red ability that lets you do a click action without spending the click will let you play that ability DURING A RUN?

First impressions? Dayum, Roja looks strong. I'm getting a little put off be the plethora of base link identities though, to be honest. Landing links is a rough gamble as is without strong identities coming pre-stocked with defense.

Aside from that... dat City Surveillance. I love the idea of an anti-economy, and this thing does a fairly decent job - I wonder if this could open up some wiggle room for replacing Data Ravens for decks that need to have solid tag ability.

i don't see any reason why not, since the paid ability basically becomes 0 credits: action.

I, for one, am hyped at the return of city surveilance!

(EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOWHERE NEAR AS GOOD AS IT USED TO BE)

Awesome. Those programs can potentially create quite a mess! Noise is the king of the late game in Anarch, but with the complicated board state that the end game can bring in Netrunner, I think that the chessboard strategy can make it very hard for the corp to manage.

It's only triggered on Install, so that's a no-go there.

Are you really disappointed with her ability? Especially early on, it's rare to rez more than one ice at a time - this is a mean hit on low-income corps and could do well to cripple Chimera.

Well if you have personal workshop/clone chip / self modifying code you can install programs during a run, and gain the Click ability.

Midori is going to *own* this cycle. Nice Chess program you had there, would be a shame if the ice it was on was returned to HQ wouldn't it, trashing your shiny program in the process...

As in my last post, I said that the programs Caïssa programs will be great for the lategame especially. The little crippling damage of taxing the corp 1 extra every turn is going to help the early game as well. I think that a very aggressive Reina Roja can maybe take the spot of Noise as top Anarch. It's a very different ballgame though.

Pawn: starts on the outermost ICE in a server, and advances if you get a successful run. If it advances 'past' the innermost ice, it upgrades into one of other other pieces.

Bishop: Can be repositioned from central to remote and vice versa. That looks like it simulates diagonal movement.

Rook: Can be repositioned to anywhere within the current Server or to the same 'rank' (starting from the innermost piece of ICE). Definitely simulating 'rank' and 'file' movement.

Knight: Can be repositioned to any other piece of ICE other than 'right next' to it in the same server. That's 'close' to the knight's movement in chess, only being able to 'attack' squares it doesn't have immediate proximity to.

Queen: Reina herself I'd think.

What is the King going to do? Usually you lose if your King goes down.

I'm not really too pleased with this. Big ICE is pretty vulnerable already, we don't need more counters to it.

I'm looking forward to a new breed of Anarch Workshop, though. The synergy between Workshop and Deep Red looks amazing.

Side note - I really, really want to know what Sundew says. Anything that's a 3i Jinteki gets my attention.

Interestingly, Pawn is the first program to have a 0MU cost.

The worst case scenario for big ICE is its broken for 2C per sub with Knight (or I suppose taken down to 3 str and broken for free with Yog.) But having all that MU eaten up in programs with a 2C cost console makes PowerGridOverload a big threat....

And the chess breakers need to be installed and clicked onto the big ice, so your archer/flare will still fire when you rez it.

City Surveillance means that a Closed Account becomes a Tag on the runner's turn. Also, a corp-imposed tax on the runner is a nice mechanic.

$1 is cheaper than $2 + click. It represents the runner having to keep moving and avoiding the cameras. But they have to keep moving.

Run, runner!

I'm torn on City Surveillance. Seems powerful, high influence cost may mean the designers think it's powerful, but expensive and easy enough to overcome. But there may be more useful NBN material coming, too.
