The Roles Have Been Freed

Recommended Posts

I don't expect the game to last long enough to get replacement clan packs. New core, probably, but the LCG model isn't sustainable over many years unless we get a full 2nd edition, binning all the existing product.

Why not keep the lcg model but only with the three latest cycles? That way cards rotate out quicjly amd the game stays fresh. Theres new design space constantly, old cards can be brought back if needed, and decks change constantly because cards rotate in and out. And theres fresh product always for people to keep buying, amd entry is cheap

We got the first one, the Phoenix pack, last Spring. I think we could easily see a new one by 2022, 4 years after release. Even as soon as 3 years. And there is no reason to think the game couldn't last another 2 and a half years.

Netrunner lasted for 5 years, and was on an upswing once Rotation and Core 2.0 happened. At least until the Licensing issues kicked. And they had a much less aggressive Rotation schedule with the 5-6/6-7 most recent Cycles. Can't remember exactly how many.

That is what they are doing, sort of. They only have the 3-4 most recent cycles, the most recent Core Set, and the most recent Clan packs. Plus those deluxe boxes.

Then its only a matter of reaching the first point of rotation. After that each new cycle will rotate the oldest one out. If we get two cycles a year, or even one, cards will rotate relatively quickly

They rotate out the oldest 2.
When we reach cycle 5 we rotate out 1 and 2

Cycle 7 will rotate out 3 and 4.
So about 1 rotation a year.

I'm expecting it will be a little over a year between each rotation (probably something like every 16-18 months.)
