FAW solution
 
Just make it what everyone assumed it would be when Snix first posted about the change:
  • Have FAW fire only one pulse instead of two
  • Have half of the shots hit the selected target while the other half hit random targets
  • The random shots can also hit the primary target
  • Change drain back to what it was with old FAW
  • Fix the accuracy bug so FAW can miss

Can we all agree on this so Cryptic has something to work with?

I like FAW just the way it is. I find it useful when up against plasma torpedoes.

What accuracy bug? FAW can miss, beams are just inheriting more accurate than other weapons.

Someone tested it, and with FAW activated, the misses were practically nonexistant.. Regular beamshots still have perhaps 5-10% miss, FAW have less than 1%

Sounds good Jorf.

Basically a beam CRF *if* you have 1 target in sight.. Otherwise a pure AOE ability.

Heh? the only torp I worry about shooting down is a tric. Anyway Hurley makes sense. It should only be as effective against one target as CSV.

Umm, I think not. I see it miss when attacking fighters or other items with high bonus defense. No more or less than what non-FAW beams do.

It's not less than 1%.

I've been using FAW more commonly since the update, as it was actually made useful. Even so, I still miss more times with it active than I do with it inactive.

Yesterday while doing a community authored mission, I noticed that I was missing quite a bit, even against small fighters. However, this was also the same deal when I did my B'trans a few days ago going up against Romulans.

I like this idea.
