    Does a Warroid Tracker installed in the root of R&D trigger when the Runner uses Keyhole to trash a card?

    Yes.

    If Warroid Tracker and Adonis Campaign are installed in the same server and the Runner makes a run and trashes both cards while accessing them, how many times does Warroid Tracker trigger?

    The Runner accesses cards in a remote server one at a time in the order of their choice. If Adonis Campaign is accessed and trashed first, both trash events will trigger Warroid Tracker. If Warroid Tracker is accessed and trashed first, it will trigger once for itself, and then it will not trigger for Adonis Campaign because the ability is no longer active.

    If Warroid Tracker is installed in a remote server with other cards and the Runner plays Singularity to run on that server, how many times does Warroid Tracker trigger?

    Singularity trashes all cards in the server simultaneously, so Warroid Tracker will trigger only once.

    If the Runner uses Salsette Slums to remove a card from the game, does Warroid Tracker still trigger?

    No.

Reviews

A very, very powerful upgrade. Probably too powerful. For a mere 2 credits, you can now defend literally any card you want. Some notable combos:

Ash 2X3ZB9CY. You win this trace. They go to trash Ash. Surprise another Trace! Have fun losing 2 cards! Actually, Warroid Tracker combos ridiculously well with any high priority asset or defensive upgrade. Having to endure this is probably super irritating. Probably only slightly less than Caprice Nisei and Ash 2X3ZB9CY. Even after dealing with all this shit, the corp plays Hellion Beta Test and makes the runner even more sad.

Crisium Grid and Off the Grid. Really makes it sting. Do they trash this and not deal with it? Shelling out and extra 4 credits? or do they trash Crisium and spend 9?

Absolutely ridiculous with Prisec. Making News for even more fun. Aryabhata Tech, Ho!

Overall I think this is a very powerful card and an interesting replacement for the soon to rotate Defensive upgrades. Hell, maybe even MWL material. time will tell. Oh yeah it can't be Rumor Milled. Fantastic.

(Blood and Water era)
While this card is really spooky, it should also be noted that it doesn't do anything to protect agendas on its own, and even with PriSec a prepared runner can just shrug the damage/tag and run off with your GFood or whatever. Especially as we head closer into rotation, the porous nature of these replacements in comparison to classics like ASH and Caprice need to be noted. It's still really frightening, but it needs to be handled well and comboed to really shine unless I'm missing something big. —
Its agenda protection ability is somewhat questionable but I think it makes up for it in its central power and the ability to protect Regions. trashing that SSCG becomes a lot harder whn you have one or more of these protecting it. —
You can rez this for free out of AoT —
I don't think the Crisium/Off the grid combo will work with Warroid, as the Crisium grid is *in the root of* HQ and not in the server (nothing is there) or protecting this server (ice) —
