I think this pack contains some of the worst design I’ve seen in Netrunner. I liked a lot about Flashpoint up to now.
Sifr is ridiculous, Aaron is is off-the-charts good to the extent that I think he’s over-the-top as a hate card with applications against a handful of different corp win conditions, and is still very good in matchups where tags aren’t a factor. Peace in Our Time gives a big boost to toxic, non-interactive decks like dyper Kate. Violet level clearance is a huge boost for CI7, which is one of the least interactive decks decks in Netrunner. I’m really not sure what they were thinking on a lot of these and hope they don’t push the meta in the direction I’m picturing.
Our panelists here are clearly top players and know what they’re talking about. I agree with most of their commentary, although I think they may be underestimating tapwrm a little.
There are several cool or interesting cards in this pack that I think are good contributions to the game, but I think the bad cards are really going to overshadow them in the end.
