We've been complaining about ECM for literally years, and get this seemingly well-made competitor for it, that looks explicitly designed to compete, and... CW only.
I can't see this breaking the game on any existing GCW ships, which leaves me with 2 explanations: 1.) not making GCW players buy Clone Wars expansions, and 2.) leaving future GCW design space open.
Given the release of our first card pack, other cards in the release being faction-neutral and no indications of upcoming GCW content (heck, there isn't that much to make), neither of those answers really satisfies me. Is anyone else feeling a little... miffed at this card getting era-locked? Or is there a compelling reason why this would have been overpowered?
