Um - since the latest patch - half my torpedoes miss - my phasers miss around 20% of the time - my tactical escort turns like a whale - and my weapons seem like crap.

Sorry to use the word CRAP - but I cant even use inefficient - what the hell is going on?????

I thought it was just me.
I have noticed a slow down of turn and speed since the changes ( impulse thrusters at 9 on a Hegh'ta) but my weapons seems the same in damage output.

hmm, my main flys a BoP. I'll check this later to see for myself about the turn rates.

Manoeuvres only affects Defence doesn't it? The tooltip and a little testing I did seemed to indicate only Impulse Thrusters affect turn rate and speed with only manoeuvres affecting the bonus defence rating.

You'll probably find they were always missing but they always looked like they were hitting on screen and registering in the log as a miss. They've changed the visuals now though so a miss actually misses the target, usually passing behind towards the camera. A similar thing happens on the ground too with misses hitting a nearby object rather than the target.

Turn rate wasn't greatly affected by the changes as far as I can tell, my Sovereign dropped from 12.1 to 11.8 degrees/ second and my Hegh'ta seems to be the same so not sure what's going on there.
I've just checked my Sci/ Defiant R as well and the turn rate is all but identical, I think it's 0.1 down on what it was before. Did you get plenty of points into Impulse Thrusters and Engine Power to increase your turn rate (Impulse Thrusters directly and Engine Power indirectly through higher power levels)?

Maneuvers only affects defense, not turn rate anymore. Impulse thrusters is what you want to skill up for that.

I haven't noticed phasers missing but today was the first time I ever remember seeing a quantum torpedo miss and go flying off into space. It would be funny if it could hit a teammate or another foe by accident.

I really notice when I miss now, but have not noticed any damage, speed or turn rate reductions. In fact, I noticed a slight speed increase but that might have something to do with the skills.

cool eve finally made it so there stuff misses, instead of 'hitting' and saying ' miss ' above the target.

glad sto did too, but i cant say ive seen the lasers missing.

and I meant starship thrusters guys. not maneuvers. couldnt remember the name.
