I know defense soft caps somewhere, I believe 75%, meaning no matter what your defense or their accuracy, your opponent will only have a 25% miss chance, worst case. This I am pretty sure is something snix posted on the forums somewhere, and was very easy to see with stacked defense buffs and values that could reach well over 100% defense values in the past, yet you were never unhittable with that.
As BigRedJedi and CaptainGeko's sheet tell us: 25 % is indeed an additional minimum to hit value. But how you determine your actual to hit value is more complicated then snix claimed.
Also, the 26 impulse speed cap is old info. It was changed when defense values were nerfed and escorts got the bonus defense. I believe the cap is 24 now (unless it changed again and I missed it) and the speed defense bonus is lower along with that as well, 45% now, I believe. Easy to test in any case.
This, however, may be true. I don't know the exact speed cap, but I remember it was changed, and I think the final value was effectively lower than it used to be.
