    mauigreen got a reaction from randomblink in Petition against NetrunnerDB Cease & Desist   
    I'm a casual gamer & avid netrunner fan I heavily relied on the chrome Netrunner lookup extension that utilized NetrunnerDB. The lookup extension allowed me to participate in discussion on BGG & other sites easily, because it was so easy to reference the card(s) being discussed.
     
    Bottom line is that without these online deck builders & associated tools for players, this game is just too cumbersome for me to enjoy the game. CardGameDB is poorly laid out, and no where near as easy to use. 
     
    i feel like this is the end of Netrunner for me unless some amazing tools appear in the near future. It also makes me very weary of getting involved in any LCG game from FFG for fear of similar treatment in the future.

    Just so you guys see the big picture, I collected the awesome assets the community had lost due to this whole mess:
     
     
    The best online deck building tool that worked perfectly on mobile devices and was used by thousands of avid players.
     
     
     
    The best deck builder for iOS, built by the same guy who brought us the tournament organizer app. Net Deck is off the App Store as of yesterday afternoon.
     
     
     
    This was a really handy tool that allowed you to see every Netrunner card anytime they were mentioned in a text. It became inoperable once NetrunnerDB went down.
     
     
     
    They are a German YouTube team that provided pretty good tournament coverage in English, comperable to Team Covenant quality-wise. They were not affected by the API takedown but chose to refrain from covering Netrunner in the future in fear they will be next. They are not protesting but simply afraid they will come under legal action by FFG; so, why put any effort into Netrunner.
     
     
    The Android platform's own deckbuilder app cannot fetch card data any more either.
     
     
    Littlechiba.com is unable to display card info anymore.
     
     
    NRTM (which is the best tournament orginizing aid hands down) is no longer able to update its identity database automatically, making using the app a lot more cumbersome.
     
     
     
    They had it coming, and I don't think anyone is disagreeing with them being gone. The fact so many others had to suffer is whole other matter...
     
     
    I'll update this post once more of the collateral damage comes to light. Oh, and I am too jumping on the boycott train against FFG. I know it seems like an overreaction for many of you, but I just don't feel good about giving them my hard earned cash. Good thing Doomtown Reloaded came along.
