Patch 1.1 introduced a new and improved accuracy versus Defense
system. Accuracy is compared to a targets Defense
to determine both the chance of hitting and damage in a Weapons
min-max range used. Also included is a visual indicator of a players chance to hit a target.
White indicates <40% chance to hit
indicates 40<~56% chance to hit
indicates ~56<~72% chance to hit
indicates ~72<90% chance to hit
indicates 90%+ chance to hit

*Image made for 1.1, exact numbers subject to change.
The first formula of the above image, Character Accuracy, is subject to diminishing returns. Below 350 accuracy is 1:1.
Above 350, the formula to find effective accuracy is: (3 * 350 * accuracy)/(2 * 350 + accuracy), or more simplified (1050 * accuracy)/(700 + accuracy).
Accuracy v. Defense Roll
For example: A player with 470 accuracy from the above formulas attacks a target with 320 Defense
. The attacker rolls 1-470 and gets a 318, the defender rolls 1-320 and gets a 250, this results in a hit.
