Endless EULA joins the short but valuable list of NBN 0-strength ICE with either soft or hard ETRs (Wraparound, Resistor, and Pop-up Window). It’s a “turbo-charged” Pop-up Window but not quite a gearcheck ICE like Wraparound, as a rig-less runner can spend 6 to get through it. It also has an atrocious rez/strength ratio compared to the traditional taxing ICE. So then, what does that make it? Anything you want it to be! (Results may vary.)
Building a taxing remote to drag the runner through multiple times? Slap an Endless EULA on the end of it.

Pre-rotation, many would scoff at this card for being Parasite target #1 but with the virus gone, Endless EULA now becomes a sure-fire tax of 6 for any runner looking to get through it, with or without fracter. Watch out though for any data breaches, cats, dogs, or nails. Excluding Parasite, this card might still end up as a major trashing target due to it being a major headache for almost all runners these days but do note that Knifed won't work if you pay 6 through the subs - you'll need to actually break the subs with your fracter. Overall, an excellent addition for Corps that can afford the 6 rez cost with ease and for you jank fanatics, go crazy with your Chief Slee theorycrafting.
How does gameNET work with Endless EULA? Does the corp gain a credit for each subroutine if the runner pays 6 for it?— Vortilion
That is correct, they would gain 6c.— BlackCherries
To clarify, this is only if the Runner pays using the ice subs and not from them breaking the subs.— BlackCherries
"Does the corp gain a credit for each subroutine if the runner pays 6 for it?" - no, runner pays to bank, corp doesn't get money. Otherwise "popup window" (which is older card with same effect) would lead to payment from runner to corp. You can see championships replays to confirm this.— stevebobs
