Well for starters, none of us have played with any of these cards so let's take everything with a grain of salt. At least open your mind a bit to the possibility that this may be a valuable card. The point of this post was that I suspect a lot of players will overlook it.
I don't know, but suppose you were Kate and you had it in your opening hand. Just imagine how many times a corp will either draw an additional card or click for a credit. They might easily have to click for 3 at the beginning of their turn.
If I were in the corp's shoes, I'd be looking at that wondering at what point I'm going to need to waste an entire turn clearing counters. 8 credits? 12? Do I even care?
At the very least, you're paying 1 (or 0, if you have a discount) to probably induce a wipe on the corp turn at some point during the game. Having a 1-turn advantage on your opponent isn't insignificant.
I'm pretty excited to play Roja, and could see a card like this doing work in a taxing deck like that. Her natural ability sets the pace of the corp back significantly, and if you can combine it with ice destruction, vamp, crescentus/shutdown the corp will naturally have to spend many turns clicking for credits. I'm not sure if I'd be better off with something else, but I could maybe see running 2 copies.
All I'm saying is don't write it off immediately, it's something I think worth watching for.
