Question on Net Shield

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

on the runnercard Net Shields is written: 1(credit): Prevent the first net damage this turn.

This was a bit unclear to us. What is Your opinion about the meanig? Does Net Shield prevents

a) the first POINT of net damage or

b) the whole first net damage, regardless of the amount

In the first games, we have decided to use option b)

Thanks in advance for Your answers

 

Michael

 The way to arrive at Lukas' ruling independently is to remember that cards are chosen one at a time. This is well recognized with multiple access runs like Medium/Maker's Eye or runs on Archives, but it also affects dealing multiple points of damage at a time.

How do you mean?  I'm not seeing how the rules regarding accessing cards one at a time would apply to the way damage is taken.

 and to piggy back on this topic, when does the Runner spend the Credit for the Net Shield ability? Before the action that incurred the Net Damage (i.e. a run) or afterwards (i.e. successfully stole an Agenda from Jintenki, spend the credit to cancel the Net Damage)?

thanks,

 In my opinion…

Net Shield is a Program you install to have the ability to pay one credit to prevent the first point of net damage for that turn.  If I understand timing correctly, you pay the credit to reduce net damage by one point.

Anyone agree/disagree?

That is correct Khudzlin. From page 21:

Prevent or Avoid
Some card abilities use the words “prevent” or “avoid.” Prevent
or avoid effects are the only effects which can disrupt another
effect. A prevent or avoid effect states what it is preventing
or avoiding, and an effect that is prevented or avoided is not
resolved. Prevent or avoid effects can be triggered whenever the
effect they are preventing or avoiding is resolving.
