Right, this has been bothering me for quite a while. I'm an accuracy trait captain, and I have some lovely [acc]x2 [dmg]x2 Advanced Fleet beam weapons. Well, they would be lovely... if every time I used Beam: Overload in PVP, it didn't miss.

I exaggerate slightly, but it really does feel as though whenever BO is used, my accuracy disappears. In PVE, this isn't an issue, but I've seen my beams go wide when targeting a huge-arse cruiser in PVP. Could the B:FaW bug be affecting BO?

Nope.

We investigated this when reviewing FAW's accuracy issues and can verify that BO definitely benefits from weapon-based Accuracy enhancements, as well as Captain-based enhancements.

I'm convinced that the complaints of low-accuracy BO shots is simply selective memory, or a form of confirmation bias. When you wind up for a bit hit, a miss hurts, and is far more memorable than any hit you've ever landed.

That said, we're considering adding a small +Acc buff in-line to all ranks of BO. We make no promises of this actually coming to pass, but it is being considered.

such a change would be unecesary and unwecomed by seasoned pvpers. bo miss rate is par according to my extensive combat log analysis

your BOing is from a bop that specializes in stuns, holds and 1 shots if i recall correctly, your sample size is not going to be that large vs non BO shots

I find overloads more accurate than a few patches ago. I seem to land 7/10.

But, this is with an accurate trait captain, and accX3 DBB.

8/10 would be great. But I'm not that ticked off about it.

No wonder Cryptic can never do anything right for PVP, when people can never agree on things.

BO is already pretty accurate. 95%+ when we parse it. There was a time, a long while back, when it was far less accurate. Adding in an additional [ACC] buff is completely unnecessary.

95% when target is held or stunned maybe.

I get around 90% on a non-stun/hold bop and my defiant with ACCx2. It requires a bit of timing but I don't see a issue with that.

Pretty sure MT and Naz are at around that margin in premade matches. They can correct me if I'm wrong. I can see how the number would be lower in pug matches though (more escorts, more running, less control from team mates)
