I think just two copies for me, and I can pick up a 3rd later if I feel like I need to and if I like the game enough. Two, then play, then decide.
1 box at first, depending on the prevalence of x3 cards. I'll only purchase a second box if real x3 synergies make themselves apparent (e.g. if I gravitate to playing as Noise and all the viruses are x2 in the box, etc).
The third will come if I get into tournament play, but I'd rather fill in my x3 blanks with pack cycle cards.
I am getting two copies as I will be attending the tournament and since there is no expansion I will have to fill out the card pool with other cards

Two tends to be the magic number for core sets. And did FFG suddenly conjure up a legitimate tournament scene for their LCGs, or is this just for cons?
He who thinks only about himself will destroy himself.
AGoT and CoC have had "legitimate tournament scenes" for a while now. I think Warhammer as well, although I can't speak to that.
Warhammer DID have a legitimate tournament scene, but in the UK it's now completely dead. Can't speak for the rest of the world.
