Any old Netrunner players here? What was your reaction when you saw this revival? Positive? Negative? Skeptical? Where did you hear the news?
I still remember my 1st time seeing that green/purple box at the local hobby store all those years ago. I can't believe it was so long ago.
When I saw this from a yahoo group mailing list, I think it is called netrunner hub, I thought it was just some get together event they were hosting. But then there were like 8 related replies. So I got curious and looked. Eyes wide, jaws dropped; couldn't believe what I was reading.
Netrunner is my fav. CCG. No other card game matched it (and I tried a lot) until FFG made AGoT, which sits right next to Netrunner in my mind. Now the same FFG is bringing back Netrunner!! Thank you so much! TAKE MY MONEY!!
I love the fact that it will be LCG. Netrunner's core card base always worked well. It worked so well that it was possible to have a really good time with just a starter deck. That seems to match the LCG format perfectly.
But 1 think I'm honestly not to sure about is some of the card art and template design. Some look amazing. But some has odd choice in color. I hope they are not finalized yet.
Also not sure about the setting. Android seems like a nice setting, but Netrunner was always more old school retro cyberpunk, with cyber decks and such, and a near future setting. Android, I am not too familiar with, but isn't it more far future, like say 23XX or something? And there'd be no more "decks", right?
