Gauntlet pairs are what is used in the Q's Gauntlet , every gauntlet has 3 traits and 1 skill , the skill is featured very often in the gauntlet matches, and the traits provide crit-chance bonus.
The "nice" thing about the gauntlet is that only the 1st star counts on a card , making it easier to participate , and the scoring is based on the cards base numbers + an rng roll on their proficiency ( similar to missions ) , base is 5% , each trait matched boosts crit chance to 25/45/65% , and a crit doubles the scoring against the opponent.
The crew which is sent to the gauntlet is still available for other use in the game ( voyages/shuttles/missions/events) ... so a non-blocking bonus game which can reward goodies.

Thank you both...I've already been doing Gauntlets, so I've seen how proficiencies affect scores & traits affect crits. Does the term "Gauntlet pair" then mean that a given crew member will be useful twice as often, statistically...?
As for the numbers given on the charts, is a low number for rank or tier better than a high one? Suggesting that more players would place that particular crew member higher on their lists?
