TBH I'm kinda ok with it. I use it on my escort, and putting all your eggs into one basket for enormous damage potential naturally has the ability to completely fizzle.

If I use it on a fast moving escort, I use it expecting to have a high chance to miss. Therefore I wait till the target is slow or stopped to raises my chances.

I don't think it misses more, cause the skill doesn't give an accuracy bonus or penalty. Cannons and beams miss quite a bit, but you just don't notice that all the time cause you're spamming spacebar or autofiring. It's just that you see a huge beam of energy flying by your target that sticks out in your mind.
