Phase I clone captain and suppression

Recommended Posts

The clone captain's ability reads:

"When you activate, you cannot remove suppression tokens or be suppressed during this activation"

Does this mean the unit cannot receive suppression tokens, or does it mean they don't suffer the affects of them?

Also, it says "this activation", but it refers to the whole activation phase, right? Like when other units shoot at me?

No. It doesn't say you can't add suppression tokens, it says that you can't become Suppressed for the current activation.

"If a trooper unit ever has a number of suppression tokens assigned to it that is equal to or greater than that unit's courage value, that unit is suppressed."

If you are suppressed, you only have one action. So the allows the unit to take two actions when it would normally count as Suppressed, but at the cost of effectively skipping the Rally step of the activation. 

It ends at the end of the unit's activation.

I see. Thanks for the explanation :)
