Yeah, I think both "Bold." and "Nice." are also going to become references now amongst the Netrunner memesters.

Oh wow, I love that there's actually five different Weyland ID's in the top 16 of Euros after Day 1.
(Argus, Jemison, Skorpios, Titan, and BLUE SUN?)
Good luck to everyone there!

Is anyone sure that they "lost it" and didn't "opt not to renew it"? How was the game's global presence actually faring at this point?
When I was first told Android: Netrunner was ending, I was… something. I don’t really know the name for the emotion that I was feeling. It was a mix of sadness, confusion, and nostalgia. It was weird. Maybe you’re feeling the same way.

you can't copyright game mechanics
you can patent them, but doing so is extraordinarily difficult and I doubt any of the Netrunner stuff is patented
basically if FFG really wanted to keep making the game without a license they could, but they'd certainly have to stop calling it Netrunner, and probably some of the other terminology was licensed from wotc as well
anyway: because wotc has been interested in making more inroads to electronic markets, it wouldn't surprise me to find out that they wanted to bring Netrunner home
but again, I think what happened is that FFG didn't want to pay more for a license, and I don't blame them, tbh
rent-seeking is a shitty thing

I don't think they knew. If they did I'm not sure they would have released a new core and done rotation.
