Not only is ACCx3 a more appropriate choice, especially for someone that has high defense, but because of the aforementioned. Now I am speaking from a PvP standpoint strictly. Unless you have some way of constantly holding your target or your target is big and slow, I woudn't use CrtH or CrtD.
ACCx3 especially with acc as a passive on your toon as well as a host of other stuff that adds to the targeting skills makes for almost a 85% (Give or take 5-10%) hit rate while fighting a high defense target according to Advanced Combat Tracker. Couple this with an all Veteran Boff Loadout that has the "Space Warfare Specialist" passive which gives +5 to all these for each vet boff: maneuvers, targeting systems, energy and projectile weapons specialization, it makes for deadly accuracy. Put on the omega deflector at that gives +16.2 to targeting systems. Add the Omega engines and spec out your flow caps, and you now have tetyron glider which helps drain shields from those stubborn targets (Best to use the tetryon weapons that give the phaser proc as well) an you are all set...
With the above mentioned setup, the skill, 4 DHC and 3 Turrets, I can almost maintain 90-95% hit rate on most target.
Add a tractor beam, and nothing but crit...
I have Accx3 weapons but they just never seemed to do enough damage. I have accurate trait and max targeting systems and omega deflector so I do miss , but still seem to hit enough with CrtHx3 even on fast moving escorts without tractoring them. I even tried the accx3 weapons after s7 with the various new crit bonuses, it still didn't crit as much as CrtHx3. I'm not sure what the exact formula is but it seems like acc overflow isn't adding nearly as much to crit chance as CrtH does. Also I only play cloaked ships Fed and KDF side so have a lot of choice in target and when to attack, like when their omega wears off and i can safely tractor them so dont need acc so much.
