So I do a search and get a barrow load of vague hits.. after reading though the first 20 I give up and ask.

Card 103 late war deck. Defectors. Has early war in braces before it's title in the card list..
Why? is it to be included in the early war deck, or is this some optional play that we've missed in the rules?

Why do you think it is in the late war deck? It's an early war card.

EDIT: Oh, are you thinking the card number has some significance? It doesn't.

yeah.
Why is it listed among the late war cards if it's an early war card?

Defectors was added late in the development of the game.

Where is it listed as a Late War card? Doesn't it say "Early War" on the card itself?

I just checked and on the player aid that comes with the deluxe edition it does, rather weirdly, have Defectors listed among the late war cards. All the cards are listed by numerical order, under the headings Early, Mid, Late, and Optional, with the last 7 cards having a (_____ War) tag before the card name. So Defectors is under the Late War heading, with an (Early War) tag.

I was confused by this too when I was learning the game. The player aid is strangely formatted. Follow what is on the cards themselves. Defectors is an early war card. I'm surprised they have not edited this in later Deluxe Edition printings.
