Doesn't change anything. Any normal attack is like 50-80 damage, an expose/exploit is somewhere in the order of 500-800 damage.
Back in Beta when you'd get stuck in an away mission without your team I would simply solo them. Encountered a group of klingons with two targ handlers and a swordmaster, fought them four times. Died the first three times almost instantly. Then the fourth time I ran in, got lucky on an AoE expose, all three got hit, I used a split beam rifle and vaporized all three of them in a single shot.
That's kind of telling how much combat is luck in this game, if you can destroy a far superior enemy squad in a single hit because you got a lucky 1 in 1000 tripple exploit.
