Guards having crits makes it harder to rebel. That isn't a good thing. I've seen other threads on this topic and came to the conclusion that crits should just not be in jailbreak. For both reds and blus. So I will be writing my thoughts on crits. Crits are there to keep reds from rebelling Actually, you can still kill rebellers without crits. The more you know. Just cause your complete trash at the game and can't stop a scout from running away doesn't mean you need 3 times the amount of damage you would normally have. This is the most common reason that people have for having crits in jailbreak. But the problem is it doesn't keep reds from rebelling, it makes it near impossible for reds to rebel unless the map is favored towards rebellers (e.g. Wildwest, horrible map). Guards are outnumbered This is another common reason in favor of crits. Guards are outnumbered so the rebellers can just bomb rush melee them. Honestly, if rebellers are able to bomb rush a blu and melee them to death then they deserve to die. It's not that hard to shoot someone who's coming at your direction with a melee, and the other blus should also be helping. The blus have the advantage since they have range. Unless you count the Sandman. Reds have random crits and could random crit you with their melee I personally think this is a very dumb reason in favor for crits but this problem could be solved by also disabling random crits (as mentioned in the title). There are rebellers every round Kinda shit reason but I have seen it somewhere so I will briefly talk about it. If there's a specific person who is constantly rebelling then you would learn to keep an eye on that individual. And plus it makes it so that guards actually have to think of how to stop the rebellers from rebelling next round. Wow, strategy! Crits discourage reds from rebelling No, not really. I think most rebellers would agree that crits don't discourage reds from rebelling but makes it harder. Which is kind of an understatement. I can somewhat see someone giving up because it's too hard to rebel but it certainly doesn't discourage rebelling. All in all, the reason people don't want to get rid of crits for guards is that they most likely suck ass at the game and when they go blu they can't kill rebellers without needing crits.
