Wow... I'm impressed.

As an LCG this will be interesting.

So LCG.

So 4 corporation "factions".

So 3 runner "classes".

Sounds pretty similar to all their other LCGs.

wow

But, who knows, might be good. Depends on how much they muck with the engine to add in these "factions". Off to look at the card pics...

Oh yes! This is great news indeed! Hopefully it will be compatible with the old cards (using opaque sleeves of course).

When this and Star Wars comes out, along with AGoT, I might as well just have my bank account transfer cash to them every month to save me the hassle.

All cards shown to us so far are just rewordings of classic Netrunner cards.

This part gives me hope, too:
This asymmetrical card game resurrects the mechanics of the original Netrunner, designed by Richard Garfield, and updates them to increase clarity and promote a more dynamic play environment.

Very excited to see how this turns out. The addition of factions seems like it will make it incompatible with the old cards, but I'm OK with that as the price to pay. New Netrunner > No Netrunner.

Edit: The announcement says 3rd quarter of 2012, I'm thinking there's a very good chance they will have copies of the core set at Gencon.

Speculation: factions are just a way to define the pre-built decks in the base set.

I really didn't think this would happen and I'm completely stoked that it did.

I think that the "factions" they are referring to are just different playstyles of decks. Hopefully they will make it to where you can customize the game and share cards among the runners and corps.

I can't wait to pick this up - I'll likely buy multiple sets.

I was just talking with a friend about this. He thinks the factions are part of their effort to fit it in with the Android universe.

Personally, I think it will be easy enough to house-rule something and have old cards count as Neutrals or something if you want to include them so it won't be a big deal. I'm just excited this is even going to exist at all!

Ugh. Factioning is lazy lazy lazy CCG design. It is rarely done well, and usually serves only to limit deck archetypes.

And it does look like there will be some mechanical changes.

Quote:
But... is Garfield involved at all in the development? I hope so even if it's only tangentially to peruse things.

If he was involved, I feel certain they would have said so as it is only a positive from a PR standpoint. I suspect Richard Garfield will have nothing to do with the game.

edit: I'd feel a lot better if Eric Lang was lead designer on this thing.

So excited! I'm positive there will be a clearer rulebook too so I'll potentially have more people to play against.

Another plus is the excellent art and graphic design. Getting people to play netrunner before was a really hard sell.

Holy crap. No way did I see that coming. And that's while I was subscribed to Wormholesurfer, Frizzler, et al.'s threads.

Since they are doing factions, I think the will do something similar to the Lord of the Rings LCG and the Game of Thrones LCG.

Probably no deck-building, just different factions to choose from, at least with the intro box. Unfortunately...

Where did you find the 250 cards information? It's not in the press release page.

Anyway, if that's correct and you have 7 factions then there are 35.7 cards per faction. If (and this is just a guess) it works similar to Call of Cthulhu where 2-faction decks are typical that would give you a 71 card pool to build what I assume would be a 50 card deck. So yes, you'd have some customization ability right out of the gate.

Now, it might be that some of those cards are Neutrals too. However, being asymmetrical a card can't work for both Corp and Runner, so it seems if a Neutral concept exists there would have to be two kinds, Corp Neutrals and Runner Neutrals, making that 7 normal factions and 2 more Neutral factions. If this is the case, then I'd expect the 250 card breakdown to be more like 32.8 cards per faction and 10 Neutrals of each type. Still enough to do some deckbuilding, actually a little MORE since you can mix cards a bit more readily with 85.6 to draw from in a 2-faction combo.

That's plenty of assuming though, and I'd still like to see where the 250 card thing comes from. Does it say anything about how many Core sets you'll need for a full set?

Well, guess this means I shouldn't feel bad about busting into the extra sealed product I have sitting around....

Also, this announcement comes at a perfect time as I was trying to decide which LCG I was going to buy into. Now where do I set up my subscription?

Seven unique identity cards

Well, there's your seven factions. That leaves me a bit more hopeful, as altering the rest of the cards for factions sounded like a disaster waiting to happen.
