I think I'm a little late to this party, but you're the only person I've heard state that there's a difference in accuracy calculations between Cannons and Beams, so I checked your Blog. You don't explain it in that post, you simply state what the formula IS without an explanation as to how you arrived at it.
For cannons, the chance to hit is
Hit = 1 / (1 - Diff)
For beams, the chance to hit is
Hit = 1 / (1 - Diff) * 0,75 + 0,25
Is there another post I can read that explains how you arrived at these formulas?
