    I did a whole write up on the flaws of the accuracy system :p

    But yes, the Gen Tac officer can take ANY weapon and make it 100% accurate, even the worst weapons that have a base 40% chance to hit at median range. You can only ever get 100 to 95% chance to hit from median down to minimum range, never better, and always less than your combined accuracy + officer skills and abilities when beyond median range.

    So is the current accuracy system:
    TAC10 = 60%+50%weaponbaseacc =100 or 95%
    TAC10 = 1.6x 50%weaponbaseacc = 80%?

    Got it changed back to the original system recently:

    Now: (1+Tac/Officer Modifier) * Base Accuracy
    Previously: Officer Modifier + Base Accuracy

    A couple patches ago, 60% base + 40% raw accuracy bonus (lvl 8 tac) would get you 100% accuracy, which was totally broken.

    Now (and many patches ago) 40% more of the base 60% results in 84% accuracy.

    Same as your 60% bonus (1.6) * 50 base = 80
    50% bonus (1.5) * 60 base = 95

    What might be a little confusing is how accuracy was calculated based on deviation from median range. It was possible to have 100% accuracy at or near median range (because of precision and rounding, now the display is more precise, it wasn't before) and LESS accuracy as you got closer to your target!

    I went into detail about my findings on that elsewhere.

    I'm doing both sensor boost and overload now!

    Sensor boost is really nice on small ships where that 1 point of precious power translates into 3.2 movement points!

    Not that good on the big dogs where 1 energy is like 'lulz' and +1 to 20 scan range, "ok so what"

    Bacl to my many arguments that these bonuses and boosts should all be % based and require proper investment into whatever system they benefit to get a return:

    Scan boost should be +25% scan range, which would effectively allow you to see at 5 range with no power investment, being exactly the same as is, but when scanners are powered up... 20 scan range getting 25% boost = 24 scan range, a little something extra to make it worthwhile.

    Overload + corvette hit and rnn = omg nightmare for anything with less than 50 hull points.

    2 players can easily dish out 50 dmg in an alpha strike. Getting those 40 battle credits and staying alive will be tricky though.

    Get one of the ships that has a huge 1-off attack like the 6+1 officer dmg Bengbu 5 or the 6+2 officer dmg super laser Gen AFIII corvette and then modify those numbers by +300%! Now add in the 1 range damage bonus to the Gen beam as well (this is not multiplied by overload, and the Bengbu V missile doesn't get range bonus).

    28 dmg from the Sol or 33 form the Gen AF III, potentially 1-shotting a frigate and leaving. Ouch.

    After a full server as Genari, I think the TACTICAL OFFICER is the real strength behind Genari. You get 10 levels which adds up to a lot of skill, Damage Boost 2 which Sol doesn't have. And High levels of Accuracy that if you can get to level 6 or more, really makes those shots hit even at 10 range. A must for any Genari big ship.

    ^^^ Now some Genari are using Rally and Overload together to seriously increase their damage and do one shot kills!
