It has always bothered me that Ezra’s assist attack triggers a counter on Ezra while the text reads “target ally attacks and then Ezra assists them” and it counts as a bonus attack, as he cannot assist if he is Dazed. But then JKR has two in built assist attacks. I understand that direct focus doesn’t trigger a counter as he just inflicts mark during his turn and then calls all jedi (including himself) to assist. But then with strategic advantage that has basically the same mechanic as Ezra, calling an ally to assist and then the character also uses his basic during his turn, it doesn’t get countered.
So my question is, which one of the two is bugged? Because they shouldn’t interact differently against counters.
