Navi Mumbai City Grid
Apr 13 2017 01:44 PM by AdorablePython
Now that I think about it, this is a cool upgrade in rush decks.
The runner makes a run on your scoring remote with SMC installed, but then you rez Navi Mumbai City Grid (NMCG) and Rototurret. Because of NMCG the SMC can't be used and is immediately trashed by Rototurret, giving you enough time to score an agenda or two.

This has a little bit of utility as a drop-and-run safety net. However it is obviously better in the early game when face checking, so you'd want 3-of to increase odds of opening hand / early game draw unless a reliable draw fixer is being used or a smaller max deck size, and I don't know if it is worth 3 slots. If it were (net or brain) damage it would be much more solid even if priced at $2.
Anyway, I think it could be playable in an early game aggressive deck, maybe Smoke in faction could get some utility out of it.

Love the concept, but just don't see it as being practical to play. By the time in the game where there are 3 rezzed pieces of ice on the board and the runner has a good enough breaker suite and econ to hit all three centrals, needing / wanting to spend $2 and a click to derez three ice is of questionable utility. It's a mid to late game play, and I think would often just be a win more card at best or a costly distraction from an already winning strategy at worst. Kind of a "Timmy" card.
A way to have made this card more useful would have been if it bounced three...or even just two...unrezzed ice back to HQ.
That would have made this card an early-mid game threat, cost the corp some precious action economy, and also choke up their hand potentially forcing hard discard decisions.

Archives would be the safest place. But, obviously, as it is the only advance-able upgrade thus far a knowledgeable player will recognize it for what it is as soon as it is advanced in that position.
Personally I don't like the timing or investment cost of this card, and considering HB has better ways to get cards out of archives I don't really see this as a good pick.

This is a misprint. It should read "Make a run on HQ. [...]".

BRE stands for "Business rules engine: a software system to manage and execute business rules." (Quote Wikipedia)
According to the unofficial FAQ, the second subroutine should read "for the remainder of the run".

1 or even 0 to rez would have been fair, too. It's overpriced.
That said, it's the first upgrade that can be advanced. That's something. But where to install it? In the root of archives or in a remote?

I disagree. A piece of ICE that breaks for 1 credit and does not punish facecheck for 4 credits to rez seems a bit overpriced to me. 3 credits to rez would still be fair.
