Whoever rated Forced Compliance 4/5 stars must know something that I don't.  This is an expensive Event that can only be played during your operations phase.  Already, we're not doing so hot, so you know the effect better be pretty awesome.


First of all, slightly less than 1/3 of the game's characters have printed Terror icons (so, leaving out the occasions where cards can gain icons).  FC can't do anything to those characters without help from Lena di Boerio, etc.  Second, you're presumably only choosing a standing character because you'll want the ability to actually attack with it.  Lastly, your opponent has final say of whether or not you'll get to attack with his character at the cost of sacrificing it.


This isn't a terrible card, but it would actually be playable if you could delete the operations phase restriction.  As it is, you can't block with the character you're getting, which is what this card really wants to do.  And at the cost of 3, there are plenty of better choices out there for spending my resources.
