As a long time RPG player... you can always find a crit miss and hit to link together if you really want to. It's unavoidable in the statistics.
But one was a roll from Archer, while another one was a roll from an opposing doll. It's not one roll from archer being offset by another roll from archer; it's two different units. Why should archer get hit by the rock as opposed to a random infantry? Or the dwagon?
Could be his defense/dodge/save roll that was offset. When Artemis shot him, he went down. Artemis knew it was a good shot, but it didn't kill Archer. Saving throw mechanism, or just barely enough of a dodge roll turned what should have been an instakill into knockdown damage. A boulder being launched from a distance should be easy enough to avoid if you are paying attention to it. One bad perception/dodge roll later, and Archer is dusted.
Imperial Stormtrooper battle logic. You don't have to be able to aim your blaster, just keep firing until your opponent fails his dodge and gets hit by a stray blast.
