Directional movement is irrelevant in the weapon hitting you. It is a math equation, nothing more.
Because Cryptic added visual effect for the miss, it is not suddenly affected by where you are firing versus where your target is moving.
It is still nothing more than your accuracy versus your enemy's evasion with a modifier for SPEED, not TRAJECTORY.
You could be flying toward me head-on, my weapons will have an equal chance of hitting you as if you were doing a horizontal strafe run.
Your "maneuvers" also do not affect these chances. Your random turns mean nothing. Again, only a mathematical equation comparing accuracy to evasion with speed modifier.
I apologize, but this is often misconstrued. You are incorrect.
