Thissler, thank you for the answer.

In the spirit of him/her/it taking the time to write that paragraph, I suppose I should clarify my statement:

I fly an Escort, it had DHCs w/ some combination of modifiers -don't really remember - then after staring at the weapons for an hour I had an "Aha" moment, so I went out and bought DHCs w/Acc x2 & CritH - they just felt like they hit harder. The AccOverflow is what attracted me. Coupled with all the various consoles (TacConverter, Zero Point, etc...) it seemed to be true. I should note this is just looking trough the combat tab in game, not any other program.

I just switched to DHCs w/ Acc & CritH x2 recently(admittedly because this post had me curious), and yes I seem to hit a little harder than the above, but I didn't notice any huge difference in furballs. I had to actually look at the combat tab in game just to glean that information.

At least to me, there seem to be some mixing of topics going on and what I mean is that people are talking about PvP(most everyone who has said something), and some(maybe just me) are talking about everything else(PvE, Missions, etc.....).
As in, of course a human is going have all kinds of dirty tricks to do anything to win. Whereas the closest to a human opponent I've run into(at least in space), from a computer opponent, is the obnoxious Borg Queen Diamond just because it's got all kind of abilities, and uses a lot of them, and is just a pain to grind down. I could run off into all kinds of tangents.............

To circle back, my point is/was that I was trying to understand, and hopefully confirm, my gut telling me stacking Acc yields greater dmg, specifically the Criticals. As opposed to the combinations of CritH and CritD. I understand that the defense thing adds a whole new dimension to the equation. For your run of the mill ISE, is stacking Acc x3 better than any other?

So thank you for taking the time Thissler to write the earlier answer, however if I read what has since been said since the OP, it seems like one would need Acc, just not x3.........maybe.........I dunno maybe it's me........I've read the post a third time, and this is a healthy debate,
