A 3 for a strengh 3 barrier, with one sub, is not a good barrier. Let's examine which ressource would be worth giving 2 to the runner.

So, the use case for this ice is to kill or severely punish the runner with tag punishment. Possibly, it can prevent a big multiaccess run.

This ice is broken for 1 by Cleaver or Begemot, for 2 with Paperclip and a optimized Tremolo, and for 3 by most other fracters.

Also, the rez effect is very situational and actually gives tempo to the runner (I do not see why, but maybe it is a new trend that rez effect have a cost to the corp). It can make a difference, but not often. However, a strenght 3 barrier, costing 3, is not bad and NBN lack decent barrier that require a breaker (unlike IP Block) to break.

Note : Klevetnik mean a person that gossip, in Czech (or Serbian).

The art is really fun and I love the quote, allowing you to troll a little bit the runner. A really fun ice!
