Besides what are we really talking about guys, practically 2% CritH and 10% Sev extra in the best circumstance. lol BOnus defense also increased more then accuracy did overall, especially with all the boffs.
This depends on what gear you're using. If you use accx3 weapons, accurate trait, nukara particle converter. starship targeting systems at 99. Deonos console for 30 into targeting and 3 stack of inspirational leader for another 30 in targeting. This is then 159 targeting systems for. So acc is then 30+10+10+24=74 if targets def is -15 you're at a positive diff of 89. So 2-(1/(1+89))=147.09%.
(147.09%-1)*.125=5.89% additional crit hit
(147.09%-1)*.5=23.54% additional crit severity
You then have consumables which increase acc and also other gear that increases starship targeting systems. So you could exceed 6% crit chance and 24% crit severity.
Low end to me would be accurate trait and 99 points into starship targeting systems for 25 acc. No consoles or gear to increase acc or targeting systems. No inspirational leader. No acc on weapons. Just the 1 trait and targeting skill maxxed. with target def at -15 this is a positive difference of 40. So 2-(1/(1+40))=128.57%.
(128.57%-1)*.125=3.57% additional crit hit
(128.57%-1)*.5=14.29% additional crit severity
So as you can see this isn't really something minor here and should not be discounted.
Yes, we're looking into it. Accuracy Overflow won't currently work for any power that "ignores accuracy" - powers that have any autohit stage.
Acc Overflow is a really arcane mechanic that doesn't message well at all. Fixing it will be a widespread change to the mechanic as a whole, not just a change to a flag on Fire at Will. It will take a little while, but it's in the pipeline to be adjusted to work.
Seeing how you guys are aware of the issue, perhaps it could be added to the known issues list?
Hm, I didn't know there were any powers that ignored accuracy, except perhaps dots. Which means quite a few sci abilities and a couple eng abilities. I guess this would include weapon dots as well. And while what you say may be true this is not what I was testing. Maybe i'm just misunderstanding exactly what you mean here.
Autoattack is working perfectly for acc overflow btw. While there may be a long thread on the subject in the builds/powers/etc forum, there isn't an issue with it that I could find during autofiring.
Auto-firing != "powers that have any autohit stage." Torpedo Spread has such an auto-hit stage, in that it's determined, upfront, what the hit/miss ratio will be (in this case, 100% hit).
So if it's working fine for autofiring I don't see why it can't work fine for fire at will.
Because BFAW also has an auto-hit stage. Auto-firing a just a gimmick to auto-cycle your weps, and auto-select a target for you. After that, an auto-firing weapon behaves no different from firing a wep manually, subject to Acc (and Overflow). I can see how auto-firing thus may *look* like also having an auto-hit stage; but I think the dev was clearly referring to auto-hit abilities (like BFAW/TS), that come with a predetermined hit/miss ratio, before any target has even been selected.
I understand that. But after the auto-hit stage there's a stage that either hits or misses the target. If it hits it does X damage. If it misses it does 0 damage. When it hits the damage is based on weapon power level, etc etc. When it crits it also factors in crit severity, etc. All of that works. Why acc overflow does not work during that stage is what puzzles me. It's like part of the equation is missing. Now if FAW never missed after the auto-hit stage that would be a different story and i could well understand why acc overflow did not work.

It's probably due to how Accuracy Overflow is programmed. They've said in the past that the implementation of the overflow needs to be looked at before accuracy overflow does anything with FAW.
