Die clashes eventually wear off the dies, while die chips and cracks don't go away. They definitely determine order of die state. Picture above shows strong clashes with no die chip formed in between left loop of second 8 (die state 2). Picture below shows weak/eroded clashes with die chip (die state 3). While picture on 29 shows very late die state where die chip formed in between left loop of second 8, but clashes has been eroded (die state 4).
