Not bad. The problem is that you will have to protect it. The runner will try and discard it before you have many opportunities to get its value.

place some weak ice in front of it and you'll cost the runner a bit to trash it. More than you end up spending since the rez cost and trash cost are the same and you would only rez it once you want to use the credits.
I think its a pretty good card for a replicating deck, other than that its just meh.
Use it to help build a VERY well protected remote server, protecting it. After you get three or four rezzed from it, switch it out with an agenda (or a trap).
If they don't run on it, use it to protect central servers instead, it'll stop being ignore-able quickly.
Maybe this is a silly question, but can you use it to protect a central server? I don't think you can. It isn't an upgrade, it is an asset.

It just says use to rez ice, it doesn't say use to rez ice protecting this server.

Also, kind of funny with Chimera.
ahhh that makes it a lot better!
Ehm, how would you be able to rez with this? If I see this thing i'mma jack out till you trash it yourself.
If I dont run this server, you can't rez the ice. This could combo with amazon but then it'd get really really expensive

Again: it never specifies that the recurring credit has to be used to rez ICE on the server where Dedicated Server is installed. It can rez ICE anywhere.

Let em run on it. Spending time and money to run of something that isn't necessarily going to win my the game sounds great to me.

Let's say that you play this on an unprotected server and use the 2 credits to rez an ice somewhere else. This amounts to 1 click and 1 credits (again this is only if you rez an ice that turn). The next turn the runner makes a free run on the unprotected server and spends 3 credits to trash it. If this is your strategy then you have spent 1 credit and 1 click for the runner to spent 1 click and 3 credits. I really do not think this is advantageous for the corp. I can't imagine many situations where I would refuse the chance to spend a click and three credits to waste a corp click. Not to mention Whizzard, Imp, bank job, etc... are common threats.
I think the corp would come out ahead on that one. I might put a single piece of ice there just because, but clicks are in short supply for the runner too.

In Replicating Perfection it isn't a free run, though. I'd spend a credit and a click to force the runner to (minimally, allowing for an unprotected central) spend two clicks and three credits on trashing a non-integral asset, you bet. Valid point about Bank Job, though.

You are absolutely right. To be honest I play against so much Weyland that I forgot jintaki decks were a thing :P
I would compare this card to PAD campaign.
Pag gives you 1 Credit / Turn to use on whatever you want.

In order for this card to beat PAD, you would need to use it every turn. But i don't think this will happen unless you design a deck specifically around this with lots of ices. But anyways you would always depend on the runners actions to get to use the card. If he doesn't decide to run on your fresh unrezzed ice, this card does you no good.

Poor card imo
Its a support piece for Midori. Pretty much plain and simple. With this and Midori you can play many mind games with your opponent.

Can't wait to see what the cycle and H&P have in store for it
