We are fairly new to Armada, but we’re a couple games in now and absolutely love it. Just a couple things came up:
Most importantly, are we doing base damage correctly? Let’s take a ship that has 4L cannons on one side. It attacks a ship at 7" away. It rolls 3 hits, two of which are 10s/crits. The base damage here is just 3. Then, we roll on the crit chart twice, adding anywhere between 2 and 8 additional damage per crit.
It seems the majority of damage here is going to come from crits. Of course point blank and raking are going to increase the base… but wanted to be sure we were seeing the base damage correctly at least.
