OK I thought I had this down, % to hit, take shot and you have that % to hit each time.
Here's a situation, maybe this is a bug or something.
I have a heavy gunner in cover, there is an enemy behind cover on a higher level. It says 53% chance to hit. I made a save right before this as I had just got my guys into their cover the way I wanted. I took a shot with my heavy and he missed (53%), oh well I guess. After another few rounds I lose two men and I decide to just reload that save. Take shot, miss (53%). Huh? Reload, take shot, miss (53%). I do this over 20 times and its the same result each time. Are the dice rolls decided before the shot is taken or something? Is this a bug? Is there some other factor than the % to hit preventing me from making that shot?
Is the % to hit really all there is or am I missing something here? I thought that it was pretty plain, percentage. Math right?
Now I am questioning every shot I take. Is it really 80%?
