I think that's where it ought to be, Siphon/Vamp/Lamprey boosting. A DLR-esque thing might be nice, but also has waaay too much potential to ruin balance, all in all. Perhaps an Agenda with a "lose a credit when stolen" drawback that'd be worth otherwise playing?
I agree almost entirely. This is entirely why Incubator looks so powerful, to me. Other uses:
-Super-expensive non-recursion to get Imp going again. (Click saving, at least, if you know you'll need it.)
-Powering up a datasucker to just plow through a defensive server at little to no additional expense.
I think Cache'll be replacing Gorman Drip as Virus economy. Maybe the two together, even?
I think it's a viable one-of. I know people don't like them because of the decreased chance of drawing, but even as a two-of, I can see it working. We're at a point where things much be cut, and I'd lose a Medium proper (with Djinn tutoring) to get an Incubator into play.
I disagree. Cyberfeeder's one way of cheating the cost down, but I think that its long-run value is still high enough to be worthwhile. Not needing to make all the runs to get Medium up, especially the usual "drop Medium, pound R&D 2-3 times in one turn" plan is going to save players a bunch of money, to say nothing of the advantages of giving the corp another reason to wipe viruses regularly... especially when there's nothing you need to do after installing it other than keep it alive.
Aaand if you're running the non-counter viruses, Incubator can prompt a virus wipe, which can be followed up with Lamprey installs, potentially prompting another wipe. Not something that can't be done already anyway, but it's certainly something.
