I know it's probably too late to change anything but I'm not sure I like this card in the Defiant pack. Not that it isn't an awesome card of course, I just think it's too awesome for 3 points.
As long as a ship has this, if it crits at all, suddenly you can almost automatically blow up the ship regardless of remaining HP.
Anyone else feel like this should be a 4 or 5? Or am I looking a gift horse in the mouth for the Federation, who do not have the attack power of the Klinks or the shenanigans of the Romulans?
Totally agree...commented as such on the Defiant picture:
Attack Pattern Omega seems under-priced and/or over-powered.
Why would you not take this as a talent upgrade???
I guess the answer is that it is a bit tricky to get it (ie, has to be a critical against the hull) and in practice, warp core breach doesn't always ensure instant death. We've seen it come up in a few games now and never got triggered.
My guess is that this one probably had a much higher cost initially and play-testing revealed it should be lowered. I'm gonna trust the designers on this one... but at face-value, it does seem awesome.
