So, If I'm following correctly Borg, you want to shift away from the normalized "Guaranteed"/"Near Impossible", to a normalized "Average" to-hit? (What I mean is, you want more variety rather than seeing G or NI every single time)

i think the center is far too big. to me, borg, it looks like you took the ends and transferred their unbalance to the center. if the inner tiers were more evenly distributed it would get a ton more support. no support for swamping one extrema for another.

The current system makes no bleeping sense. I really like borgrels system, that being said what really needs to be debated is how flat or tall we want the new bell curve to be, and that can be determined by the wieghting we give to modifiers as the get further away to either end of the curve.

Your chart's wrong.

<=0,1,2,3 Guaranteed
4,5 Almost Guaranteed
6,7 Easy
8,9 Above Average
10,11 Average
12,13 Below Average
14,15 Difficult
16,17,18 Near Impossible
>= 19 Impossible (Can't be achieved)

Please redo the pretty pictures Very Happy

Little known fact is that the Withering Fire actually stacks onto of the To-hit system once it's been caluclated.

Thus even if your opponent reduces your To-hit to above 18, it'll cap at 18 and your Withering Fire can bring you back down to 9 thus 50%.

To hit is working just fine. NO SUPPORT FOR THIS ONE. If you cant hit train more, if you cant dodge means you lack of skills or basic knowledge of mechanics or you just wanted to hit way too much while flying in an orbit with gladius in your hand.

I saw questions being asked about to hit that this would answer in all chat today so decided to find it and give it a bump.
