Who uses crit tokens?

Recommended Posts

Not only do I use them, I put them on the opponent's ships as well if they don't have their own. I'm a nice guy like that. :P

 

It's the same deal as with blue locks. Do you need to use them? No. Will being lazy cost you a game at some point? Yes.

Technically, they are compulsory...I think. The rulebook says to use them. The Rules Reference, however, never even mentions them. So it all comes down do whether "the rules" means "RR only" or "rulebook + RR, with RR taking priority when they conflict".

Oh, and I absolutely use them. I forgot crits too many times without them.

Blue locks?  So you're playing 1.0?

But seriously, what are crit tokens?

I generally insist on them. I've lost ships before because people have forgotten (legitimately or not) Weapons Failure.

I've also forgotten crits and it feels bad realizing after a few rounds.

 

Yep. The 2.0 crits are more important to track, and have lots of chain effects now.

I'll place a token for any face up damage that isn't a Direct Hit.  Best way to remember.  I only place one token per ship, regardless of how many crits it has assigned to it, it's just a reminder to check my cards.

Talk to your opponents too, "What's the crit on this ship?"  "Weapons Failure."  So now I know I've got one less red die coming at me and can plan accordingly.  It's on you to talk to your opponent, you can't get salty for not knowing what they have going on and failing to maximise any potential you might have!  It's also a solid reminder for yourself to repair the damage if you get a chance.
