I haven't played the CCG.

I bought it for the rules, mostly. 

But, once in, I am going to adapt it for my own ongoing SC 2.0 game.

And I'd agree with: CT, via Bond, by J. J. Abrams.   That's on the mark, or close enough to hit wound points.

The discussion on WoF factions:

Default good guys: Shadow Patriots, Krypt, Banshee Net, Nine Tiger Dynasty, Bloodwine Syndicate & Paradox Society.
Default bad guys: Project: Pitfall, the Eternals, the Franchise.

Haven't played CCG. But, here's a link for the cards:
You should find pictures for most of the CCG cards.

Somewhere I've got a pdf from the CCG that discribes the original factions. I'll see if I can find it for you (It's on one of my backup disks)

In the meantime, again, we ask that you pester your retailer, as it's the best way to get our books flowing regularly into stores. Don't believe them if they say the book isn't available - it is. If they say that, they're refusing to order it rather than not able to. Sometimes you can solve that with persistence; sometimes you just have to prove them wrong (perhaps by ordering it directly from Mongoose and running the game in their store).

Indeed, it did. :D You were right when you said that the revised edition of core rules and WoF would be sent a bit everywhere. I was able to find and purchase the SC2.0 book in my usual store just today, and the setting is (re)scheduled for next week. By the way, you should be very proud of your products, because WoF lasted only few days in stores, and I just managed to get one of the last copies of SC2.0. The manager said that, considering the speed with which the book were sold, he would order twice more copies than what he first expected. I guess I was too pessimistic in believing french stores wouldn't follow Spycraft second edition, and certainly to slow after reading your answer. Anyway, I'm gonna have to be a little more patient, but being able to read the core rules on paper is already... awesome!  :P

Then one day, they just flooded in. It takes time, but when it out!  8)
Take comfort in knowing you never had a choice.
