I thought I’d pose this question to the experts here since I’ve been unable to find anything definitive in my Google searches. If I run R&D or HQ and hit an Archangel, can I break it with an icebreaker or do I just have to let the trace run and either match it or not?
Last night I did this and had an Atman at 6 but my friend was saying that because it is being encountered after the point where I can use icebreakers or paid abilities, it cannot be broken like it could in the normal steps of a run. I tried to see if this question had been answered before, but I didn’t find anything surprisingly. Perhaps my google vocabulary just wasn’t up to snuff. I hope this has been answered, because if not, this card opens up a lot of room for many questions on what can or can’t be done when this in encountered for both sides.
