With recent round of card changes before our last test round before beta release I have decided I wanted to add a new icon ability for Personnel set. I wanted this ability to be something similar to the ability Trample in certain popular card games. What I have come up with will be formally known as OverFire.
This new ability can be given to surface ships or aircraft and I am looking at making some new legendary ship cards in Personnel that have this ability. Ships and aircraft that have this ability will be able to redirect any damage that may be dealt to an intercepting unit directly to the defending player's flagship. This will bypass having to do another attack/defense challenge and deal damage to the flagship as though the roll was made. Attack/defense challenges with the intercepting unit still commence as normal, and a defending ship does still fire back. However, any or all damage rolled by the attacking unit can be redirected as this is an optional affect. This only affects units attacking, the ability has no affect if the unit is defending. Weapons and directed fire cards are also not affected by this ability, only combat damage can be redirected. Below is the icon being used for this ability.
