What would be more critical a fire rated wall to ceiling joint or a wall to wall joint? I would think it's the fire rated wall to ceiling joint since heat travels up and would concentrate in the upper area.
I would say equal
Might depend on the make up of the wall. If it has two layers of sheet rock, the joints should be staggered. So the vertical joint, in away does not matter/ or not as critical.
