k, I played vs Skorpio tonight. After the MWL super omg great news, I'm now super pissed off by FFG. What a roller coaster.
Game I played : 20 turns somehow, 0.75 trash / turn, ended with 15 cards RFTG. How can a normal runner prevent 15 trash of different nature a game ?
Is the "normal runner is having fun playing my new design" even a "hello designing game 101" question the designer of this asked himself ? 101 damn it ! Who is the f culprit of that !
ANR is dead to me.
I think the only solution to this corp and their soon-to-be many different archetypes is "I play alone" Noise or lots, lots, lots of luck and I don't want to play a slot machine when playing that game.
I won't run until the problem is fixed with a lighter.
WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING FFG
There is an anormal amount of unavoidable trash effects in the game being by damage, trash prog, own runner's trash abilities or indirect fire like hunter seeker, ibrahim salem etc. So this id always trigger no matter what, if a builder use one way or another.
CTM, or even any non-MWL corp is a lot, lot weaker than this one : this one is the ID that will dominate the field two times by NEH standards.
What they expect is the runner putting say I think something like a quarter of the runner deck of prevent and breaker doublon.
So what happens : mono access ID that face in tournament say half of skorpios, then a quarter of CTM, some heavy horizontal, some heavy FA, some heavy glacier : to attack all, or even a third of those specialist decks, runner is super dead.
He needs tools that were all toxic to the game and are all MWLed. Balance solution ? Either unMWL all those toxic runner tools, or scorch the ID and pretend it never existed.
Only solution is milling to win, a.k.a. yay I'm an autist runner playing super uninteractive stuff : no way, this game just died tonight.
People said no to rftg in corps with Chronos, and that was for the reason that runner faced specialists and couldn't afford 10 bullets, and conducted to a meta deadlock of noise/chronos HB, the one who moves from that loose games, what with that ? A card like Hunter Seeker that was worded like 3 years ago, passed all tests then editor saying "yeah it's a good thing for the game, unavoidable rftg is a super funny effect to play with in any game and involve no luck whatsoever to draw your prevent vs those 40 trash effects in this strategic game of Netrunner or whatever it's called, just do it" ? HELLO ?
I'm super super pissed off. I think FFG is bad at their work, marketting & testing. I'm really really pissed off. No matter how much work, in hours, you makes in designing a runner deck, a noob would just put 40 cards together with this ID, all with trash written on them and will win because nobody can avoid 40 trash effects in a game.
NEH or CTM is T2 next to this.
This is a real bp to me. Don't expect me to play other FFG card games after this : designers, editors and testers are not living in the same world as players.
