Its not too bad to learn actually. I'm a relative n00b, but once you get through a few games most stuff becomes easy - its just edge cases like Grail ICE or operating Foundry / Accelerated Beta Test that then confuse you.

The keyboard shortcuts and stuff are okay on the reference sheets floating around, but it does help to have some you can straight up ask "How do I access that?" or "How do you remove a tag?" for the first couple of games.

The Mobulator should do you a good job of guidance while the training wheels are on.

Playing mmtheblm's Blue Sun - Siphoned him and what not, then later on slap down the R&D Interface and go get a Priority Req! Yay! And another one! Boo!

Slap down another R&DI and hope to get the winning agenda, but see Sea Source instead. Sad face.

OCTGN is all like NOPE! when mmtheblm tries to Punative and does me no damage. So he Sea Source / Scorched instead.

Is it me or is it hot in here?

Some genius trying to tell me that Cyberdex Virus Suite is the first broken card in Netrunner.

Blimey thats a bit severe. Broken? Cant see it myself, I mean, andy I like to joke is broken but there isnt a single card in the game that I think is genuinely bust. When IT dept came out people were saying it was going to break the game, here we are and....nope, everything still looks pretty legit.

D4v1d can also make it look like a joke and if the dept itself is not too well protected Femme Fatale and Inside Job can get it done. It can just lock the game out but if the runner doesn't underestimate its power it's pretty tough to lose to in my experience

Xenasis pretty much nails is here.

ITD is a very powerful card - it's for HB glacier what SanSan is to NEH FA, this is the sort of power level we're talking about it. So whilst it's not OP, it's certainly something that, in the absence of time limits, you would want to put in your deck if you were playing that archtype. However, the big problem with it is the way it wins - there was a game from the final of Stimhack League II where ITD set up a lock and it was around 45 minutes before the game actually finished. Neither of that deck's victories were under an hour long. This just creates NGEs.

It doesn't break the game because it's OP, it breaks the game because it generates NGEs.

Once ITD is set up, it's a hard lock - there is literally nothing you can do. However, the corp still has to build another remote to score in, probably 3 deep in most cases, and then slowly score out. This regularly takes 30+ minutes. That is 30+ minutes where you have nothing better to do than sit in your chair wondering why the hell you ever chose to play this game, it is a perfect example of an Negative Game Experience (NGE).

Played someone who tried to fast advance something while I had Clot out.

Pointed out they couldn't do it.

They highlight Haas Arcology AI.

I reiterate the card text.

Opponent ragequits.

Sad face.
