    Within the month, I think. They're starting to release small spoilers each day this week, probably next week for bigger spoilers, then early march for the release date.

    There was a tweet earlier in the month...


    And that the Q1 target was still in the plans. So I'd assume the start of the most holy of seasons, SCOOPS SEASON, will kick off at the start of March when the timer runs down. (We havn't had any actual new scoops yet from Gateway, just Update stuff.) A couple of weeks of showing off new cards, and then the release mid/late March.

    Is there a preferred manufacturer? I mean, I sleeve my cards and have a decent number of promos, and of course FFG wasn't consistent in their print capabilities. But I do want to treat this as professionally as possible.

    We use two different print on demand services who ship globally. Drive thru cards is best if you live in NA, and Makeplayingcards if you live elsewhere, usually.

    You can find links to the storefronts at nisei.net

    MPC also might be a decent option if you are going to be ordering a *bunch* of copies in one go for a playgroup, since you start getting discounts on printing them if you’re getting 6+.

    Yeah DTC results in more net gain for the organisation. If you're in NA I'd highly recommend buying from DTC. The shipping is way cheaper, we benefit more and the pricing is just done by raw cards rather than any sort of break point. I believe no matter how many you order DTC is always cheaper in NA.

    It BEGINS!

    The SCOOPS schedule, as well as the new Shaper console in Gateway:



    March 28’th is the planned release date for Gateway and Update, although it may slide a day or two on the printers due to having to approve the physical proofs and the state of the post these days.

    Been out of the game for a while, but definitely an interesting console... Works better against opponents with low point value agendas, and of course free (I assume, it's been a while) installs are very, very nice. It doesn't seem like the cornerstone of an economy though.

    A stream I was watching pointed out that its nice because it works on scored and stolen, so you can potentially trigger it 6 or 7 times if they are running Hostile Takeover or similar.

    True. Definitely favors a more aggressive shaper, it seems.

    It's a very good intro console as well. Aside from the possibility of interesting combos that opens up with off-turn/instant speed installs, getting credits back for something that will usually happen anyway is always nice to have. It also makes a player think about timing and scoring windows, and whether to install something using a click or hold it in hand and wait for the opponent to score, giving you a free action.

    For example, your opponent install-advance-advances a card in a remote (denoted "IAA"). You're not sure if you can get in to access the card, but maybe you have an icebreaker or R&D Interface in hand. If you play them on your turn, your opponent could take their next turn and shore up defenses on R&D. With Pantograph, you could hold on to the card, and if your opponent takes their turn to advance and score out the agenda, you get a free discounted install and can possibly surprise the Corp player by attacking more powerfully than they expected.

    Also, its 2c for +1 mu, and it will 100% pay for itself in a game that ends on scoring.

    Whoa, a bunch of fascinating rules and template changes.



    Also a couple of SCOOPS, a new runner event from Gateway, and everyone's... uh, "favorite" NBN upgrade is back in Update.

    Diving into the article a bit, there's two new big keyword changes to try to clean up the rules to make things easier to understand for new players.

    "Interface" is shorthand for the whole classic "your icebreaker needs to match or beat the strength of ICE to interact with it," and cleans up what abilities actually NEED strength to do anything with. So they're giving the abilities that require strength (i.e. "break subs") the Interface tag to let you know, and it turns out it actually cleans up the text on a bunch of cards. The example they used was Abagnale, which no longer needs the long reminder text talking about how you don't need to match strength on the Bypass ability.

    "Breach" is the equivalent of "accessing cards", and helps clean up replacement effects.

    Borrowing from the article, so a successful run would look something like:

    -Having passed all ice defending a server, the Runner declines to jack out
    -Paid ability window
    -Run is declared successful
    -The Runner breaches the server, accessing cards in a way appropriate to that server. For example, accessing a random card from HQ and all upgrades in the root of HQ.

    And so you could do card effects now that say "instead of breaching HQ, do [ability]."

    I really like it. Interface should probably be an icon to save even more room in the template and help with translation issues, but that's okay. Breach has been needed for a while.

    I'm intrigued by the ruling regarding timing window changes for revealing cards in that last bit between making a successful run and accessing the server. I remember lots of confusion on whether you could rez upgrades / traps when a server didn't have ice protecting it. Interesting to see how they went, and went about fixing it.

    I did some asking around, and according to Serenity one of the goals they’re working on is updating the files for the Ashes Cycle with the new rule standards so it’s a unified front with the new card frames = new rules. And there should be a upgrade pack for existing owners of that cycle on POD services eventually.

    Man, I've got jnet open, I've got a couple of decks loaded in, I've been watching streams of people playing (mostly Metropole Grid because it seems the least opaque), but the nerve to hit the last couple of buttons keeps failing me.

    Nooo uprising booster is a subset of Uprising, you don't need both.

    It was a special release to get new cards for worlds 2019.

    Also word from on high is that *all* Gateway ID’s will be 40-card decks.

    I like that the intro decks are all 40. Encourages a faster, more aggressive playstyle, and less resources. One of the first things I HAD to learn about this game was to cut down my deck.

    As a longtime Crim player, that shaper Bullshit just... sings to me.

    Now, the question to ask is, "man, all these ID's actually look good, I wonder what the hell NBN is going to get?" The answers to that question, and more, are available on your Reality PLUS subscription.


    Also remember back when they announced SU & SG, they announced a new format to go with it? It didn't have a name yet, but that has changed and it is now known as Startup.
