Post subject: Losing SAs while crippled  Reply with quote   (Liked by:0)  Like this post
I have had issues with crippled ships.

1. Is it correct you cannot use SAs from a crippled ship?

2. If 1. Is correct should "Slow1,2,3" still be in play because they are effectively an SA also.

3. If you still use the SA Slow while crippled why are faster ships effectively slow than speed 1 ships if crippled. This seems mad.
( speed 1 ships retain speed 1 but speed 2 slow? Can be forced to lose movement altogether)

Thanks.

1. A crippled unit can use its SAs still, except that a crippled unit loses its Flagship bonus (the +1 / +2 flag). A crippled unit would still be able to use Flotilla Leader though. (Rulebook pages 34-35.)

2/3. Slow rolls must still be made. If a crippled Speed 2 unit rolls slow, then it has a Speed of 0. Oddly crippled Speed 1 units are still Speed 1 (they do not become Speed 0--again Rulebook page 34 for the source). It is really weird, but that's how WotC decided it was to work.

Quote:
Slow 1/2: A crippled Ship with speed 2 and the Slow 1/2 special ability has its speed reduced to 0 for the turn by rolling a 1 (or 2) at the beginning of your Sea Movement phase.


I'm not certain where that clarification came from, but its been around for as long as I've been playing. I believe it is from old WotC forums that are no longer available and haven't been for awhile.
