Well the idea that decking rules are too complicated to learn should go away with this edition, but many people are going to have a completely different problem with the new rules.
There is a difference between a commlink and a deck. Everyone has a commlink. Commlinks have a device rating like pretty much all other gear does in the game as well as two attributes: Data Processing and Firewall.
These are the two illegal actions on the Matrix which only deckers can perform. Sleazing involves hiding your illicit actions from the various security protocols in place, allow you to subtly obtain your goals without being noticed hopefully.
Attack is This is actually a lot more advanced than it sounds. But the biggest advance in the Matrix rules is the modularity, even in the core rules.
This opens up decking to a whole new level of customization based on character personality as well as tactical decisions. Do you want to be aggressive, defensive, stealthy, or efficient?
The second issue is Bricking.
Oh dear fucking lord, the flamewars have already started on the concept of Bricking. Everything can potentially be wireless-enabled. You have to weigh that potential bonus the wireless gives you versus the potential that an enemy hacker can turn your prize gun into a paperweight. In others and usually in the more critical systems , it might just be worth it.
The best example of this are smartlinks, a piece of cyberware that links with a sensor inside your gun. Wherever your gun is pointed, a reticle shows up in your vision that tells you where the bullet will end up. If you try to hack something and it gets more successes on the test than you do, every success the device got more than you did does damage to your deck.
And ALL Matrix damage is physical damage to the hardware now. And yes, this includes dumpshock.
This is a great addition to the game to me. Before, hackers were the nerds who solved all your tech problems but hid in the back when the firefight started.
Now hackers can cause serious damage to enemies in the middle of combat, but at the cost of potentially losing their hundred thousand nuyen hardware if not their higher brain functions.
And magic users also got a nice little power boost in this edition, both adepts and magic users.
Adepts have always had an odd balance built into their characters. Instead of packing their bodies with technology, they use their inner magic to turn them into combat beasts think the monks from wuxia films.
This gap has been lowered as the costs for various adept powers have dropped drastically, in many cases half of what they were in previous editions.
Straight spellcasters are also getting a power boost. Mentor Spirits powerful totemic spirits who guide and influence your magic have been overhauled to give bonus dice to a skill or two on top of the additional boost to magic magic users get a dice pool bonus to a school of spells or a spirit type, while adepts get a free power.
Also, your priority choice when choosing your magic talent includes skill points for your magical skills. These work together to solve a major problem in creating magic users from previous editions because you were severely starved for skill points.
In addition, those magicians who can cast spells get a major tactical boost in Reckless Casting, a new action. In Shadowrun, you get either two Simple actions or one Complex action per turn in combat, and spellcasting has always been a Complex action.
With Reckless Casting, you can cast a spell as a Simple action at the cost of adding to the drain you have to resist. Damage values on guns have gone up, while armor and health for characters have stayed more or less the same. To make matters even worse, APDS armor piercing rounds have had their availability reduced so you can now get them at character generation. My expectations for this game were very high, and they were met This edition looks and feels more like the Shadowrun I grew up with than 4th Edition ever did, and aside from the introduction chapter, I love the tone of the writing.
The rules themselves are flexible enough to allow many different styles of play, from high-powered Prime Runner to street-level gangers.
