All excellent points. The effect is so strong that you almost need it to install some of these cards, which isn’t a great place to be in.
I think Liberated is an ok use of kiting, particularly if you can use citadel to clear the tag, since it will give you all econ from the install with essentially very little cost, which will hopefully give you enough credits to hard install something else later.
It’s a really big engine of many very big pieces, that doesn’t fit well with my idea of what criminal more traditionally is, but it is an archetype I have played with before with some success*.
*not tier 1 competitive success, but enough to win a few SCs
