I'm a new Android player and played my second game against my friend tonight, who's also the same experience. I was hoping if you could clarify something for me please?
I used Gordian Blade during a run on his server which was protected by Viper.
GB has strength 2 and was boosted by The Personal Touch to strength 3, I paid an extra credit to match Viper’s strength of 4.
GB has the following abilities:
Pay 1 Credit: Break code gate subroutine.
Pay 1 Credit: +1 strength for the remainder of this run.
Do I have to pay 2 credits to use GB’s first ability to break both Viper’s subroutines? (eg 1 credit per subroutine)
If a runner can normally pay a credit to bypass a subroutine when he encounters it, how is GB’s first ability any better?
For the second ability, if I pay 2 credits, can I increase GB’s strength by 2 for the remainder of the run, etc?
