So Mihawk isn't the only character with crit protection. Or is Cory just copying Emily again?

When there's a limited supply of rulesets to pull from, the line between those two concepts is surprisingly thin.

Seems more like it forces a re-roll on a successful attack so he was using it to stop the crit which could really hurt him.

"Tell a Story: Rolling at Disadvantage"

In the newest D&D system, you can roll at an advantage, meaning you roll two dice and take the higher roll... or roll at disadvantage, and lose that sweet, sweet higher roll.

Share a story about a time someone had to take a lower roll than what you deserved to get, and the tears of blood that were shed over it.

"Stupid Sexy Paladin"

I was doing a little travelogue with a short crew (3 1/2 players down), and threw in a little griffon action to keep it interesting. The party was clustered up beneath some trees for cover (which did not help), so I had my pick of targets.
Griffon comes in and goes for the Eldritch Knight - Crit!
Dwarf Paladin: Am I right next to EK?
DM (me):...yes?
DP: I have the Protection fighting style. I use my reaction to impose Disadvantage on the attack.
DM: ... okay, so only a 22 to hit. Damag-
EK: I'll use my reaction to cast Shield (AC is now 23).
DM:... is a miss. (rolls) And so are the talons.

The next round the Paladin Smites the griffon into a fine feathered paste. I went from potentially dropping the gish to no effect.

You never said it had to be players' tears.

This mostly goes the opposite direction, but I'll share it anyway.
In Star Wars Saga Edition, there is a talent called Advantageous Opening which allows you to make a free attack whenever any enemy or ally in line of sight rolls a natural 1 on an attack.
This is obviously very useful... especially if you are the player that gets 1's all the time. After all, you are your own ally, unless it is specifically called out.
We did have to rule that you couldn't get attacks off of 1's rolled off of these extra attacks, though. You might be surprised how often that came up.

well i cant think of a moment where a disadvantage roll made me loose, but i can think of an advantage roll where our barbarian rolled a 1 but since he had reckless attack going on he rolled again, crit and chop the monster in half.

Just last Monday, I rolled a 1 on a Con save vs exhaustion (and probable drowning), used Tides of Chaos (Sorcerer thing) to give myself advantage, and crit on the new roll.

Not sure if I've lost a 20 to disadvantage, but maybe one of my online players has.

A friend of a player of mine decided to throw together a Hoard of the Dragon Queen group. We'd just waded through the mess of kobolds and dragon cultists in a village to escort civilians into the town's keep, taking a cultist prisoner along the way to interrogate, and then went upstairs to the roof to check on the blue dragon attacking town and see if we thought the ballista could drive it off. The GM warned us that this was an unrealistic challenge for first level characters, ranted a bit about his disagreements with the module he'd chosen to run, and generally implied that we should just hunker down in the keep and wait for the dragon to go away.
We might even have donw that, but we failed our Fear tests, and while being Shaken or whatever condition it was only imposed Disadvantage on our ranged attack rolls (it might have limited our actions too, it's been a while since I played 5th) we elected to roleplay fear as "AAAAAHHHHHHH OH GODS KILL IT" instead of "Run away, run away!" Not unlike a panicked cop shooting a superhero or villain in a movie, our efforts were... ineffective. With a Barbarian, a Fighter, and a Cleric, we had no problem loading and firing the ballista each round, but Disadvantage denied us our first hit. The GM let slip how much damage needed to be done to drive the dragon off, but it had noticed our miss and was winging its way toward us.
We had the dwarf cast Guidance to negate the disadvantage and tried again.
We hit, though not by a lot.
And then we flubbed the damage roll and got carbonized by the lightning breath of an angry dragon with a ballista bolt embedded shallowly in its shoulder. Well, except for my character, whose Bear Totem Rage spared him from dying all the way.
