So I was reading the rule book, and had a question about the ability  gaurd, in what situation would you use it, since you can assign damage to your runners how you want to.  Sorry guess I say this post is for Edge Zone.

There are some challenges that allow the owner to apply damage as he wants, and in Runner vs Runner PvP combat runners are paired up, so the damage gets applied straight accross.  So if you ahd a Bodyguard with guard and a Mage, fighting two Street Sams, you would have a Street Sam vs the Mage, and the damage can normally only go to the Mage.  But since the Bodyguard was involved in teh PvP, he could soak the damage to save the mage.

There are also some Specials that will do direct damage to specific runners.

It's situational, but can be useful.
