This continues a trend that I'm really not a fan of: HB getting the lion's share of 5 influence cards on the Corp side. I'm not opposed to a five influence card by any means. What I take issue with is how it seems like HB gets more of them than any other faction. All of the norse god bioroids (Wotan, Tyr, Loki, and Fairchild), Game Changer, Kill Switch, Black Level Clearance, and Load Testing are all five influence. Add in Director Haas and Cybernetics Court and that's 11 of the 19 corp cards with five influence. Weyland has the second most with four, and then Jinteki and NBN each have two. All four factions have one "chairman" executive that runs the company (the aforementioned Director Haas, Victoria Jenkins, Chairman Hiro, and The Board) and one exhibit hall from The Universe of Tomorrow (Cybernetics Court, Franchise City, Worlds Plaza, and Genetics Pavilion) and weyland has a massive ICE (Oduduwa) and another intense meat damage effect (High-Profile Target). There's your five influence cardpool. You'll also notice that most of these effects aren't that good. Maybe not god-awful and only there for lore, but I'm not sure if these are faction-defining effects. I'm not sure why this keeps happening. For me five influence should be a rare occurrence, and seeing HB get so many is just bizarre. Furthermore, some of these effects seem like they should be more universally available. Load Testing comes to mind the quickest, but I can also see an argument for Black Level Clearance. Is this a minor quibble? Absolutely. I don't hold this against the design team or Mr. Suied here at all. And Big Deal is a fine card in its own right. Thank you for indulging me this review/rant. Hopefully we see more five influence cards in other factions soon.
I agree it'd be cool to see more 5 influence cards. This one feels like a good fit in HB. (It might become game-breaking in Weyland and in NBN it's probably a bit redundant with Shipment from Vladibirisk and I don't think Jinteki will ever be reach enough to consider a FA card this expensive).— superheronation
