I've been playing Fantasy Flight games for a while and they're pretty much the EA of board games when it comes to expansions. They definitely make a solid product but they'll be damned if they're noy going to make it a little better for ten bucks. I play lots of different games and Netrunner is one of them that I just started to get in to. I might pick up an expansion or two but I just found out about these "draw play" packs and rolled my eyes. I thought I was buying a stand alone game and FF touts how Living Card Games are NOT ccg's yet its starting to look an awful lot like one. As it stands I have the core set and I might pick up one of the deluxe expansions once I play the game enough to be as comfortable with the rules as I am with other games. But I'm not going to sink too much money into this game and FF is starting to actually scare me off.
The LCG format is nothing like the CCG format. This way you get all the cards without sinking hundreds of [appropriate currency] to get them, only for the sets to become invalid down the line (though that's mainly a Magic issue I believe). And they've never hid how the LCG system was designed to work. Core set, then expansions. They've been about for a few years now, so not a recent change designed to suck you in.
