Accuracy, Evasion and Criticals
Contents
Introduction
This page is to provide an indepth look into the hit rate mechanics in game for single/combined fleets and landbased air squadrons. The formulas presented in this page are still subject to change as more testing is done.
Please note that all formulas between [math]\lfloor \ \rfloor[/math] are rounded down.
Hit Rate
The hit rate is used by all attacks.
[math]\text{Hit %} = \bigl\lfloor \text{Hit}_\text{cap} \bigr\rfloor + \text{Acc}_\text{proficiency} +1[/math]
Where, the Capped Hit Rate [math]\left( \text{Hit}_\text{cap} \right)[/math] is:
[math]\text{Hit}_\text{cap} = \text{cap}_\text{max}\left( \text{cap}_\text{min} \left(\text{Accuracy}_\text{atk}  \text{Evasion}_\text{def}\right) \times \text{Morale}_\text{defender} \right)[/math]
 [math]\text{Accuracy}_\text{atk}[/math] is the calculated accuracy of the attack. Please see below for the various accuracy formulas.
 [math]\text{Evasion}_\text{def}[/math] is the calculated evasion of the defending ship. Please see below for the various evasion formulas.
 [math]\text{Morale}_\text{defender}[/math] is the morale state modifier of the defending ship.
 >52 morale (sparkling) is [math]0.7[/math]
 3052 morale (normal) is [math]1.0[/math]
 2029 morale (orange) is [math]1.2[/math]
 019 morale (red) is [math]1.4[/math]
 [math]\text{Acc}_\text{proficiency}[/math] is the average plane proficiency accuracy bonus. Please see Plane Proficiency for more details.
 The average is calculated only from dive bombers, torpedo bombers, seaplane bombers and large flying boats.
 The value is [math]12[/math] for >> ranked planes.
Hit Rate Caps
There is a minimum and maximum hit rate in the game.
 The minimum of [math]\text{cap}_\text{min}\left(x\right)[/math] is 10.
 The maximum of [math]\text{cap}_\text{max}\left(x\right)[/math] is 96.
Important Notes
 Hit rate has an effective minimum of 11% and a maximum of 97%.
 Plane proficiency is the only factor that allows a ship to go beyond 100% hit rate.
Critical Hit Rate
The following are the various formulas for determining critical hits for attacks.
 Shelling/ASW (including carriers): [math]\lfloor 1.3 \times \sqrt{\text{Hit}_\text{cap}} \rfloor + \text{Crit}_\text{proficiency} + 1[/math]
 Torpedo: [math]\lfloor 1.5 \times \sqrt{\text{Hit}_\text{cap}} \rfloor + 1[/math]
 Airstrike: [math]\lfloor 0.2 \times \sqrt{\text{Hit}_\text{cap}} \rfloor + \text{Crit}_\text{proficiency} + 1[/math]
 Night Battle (including carriers): [math]\lfloor \left(1.5 + \text{Const}_\text{contact} \right) \sqrt{\text{Hit}_\text{cap}} \rfloor + 1[/math]
 Shelling Support: [math]\lfloor 1.3 \times \sqrt{\text{Hit}_\text{cap}} \rfloor + 1[/math]
 Airstrike Support: [math]\lfloor 0.2 \times \sqrt{\text{Hit}_\text{cap}} \rfloor + 1[/math]
 [math]\text{Crit}_\text{proficiency}[/math] is the plane proficiency critical bonus. Please see Plane Proficiency for more details.
 [math]\text{Const}_\text{contact}[/math] is the night contact constant from the Type 98 Recon Seaplane (Night Scout). It is [math]0.07[/math] if night contact is triggered, [math]0[/math] otherwise.
Accuracy Formulas
Below are the common variables used in all accuracy formulas:
 [math]\text{Level}[/math] is the level of the attacking ship.
 [math]\text{Luck}[/math] is the luck of the attacking ship.
 [math]\text{Acc}_{equip}[/math] is the total accuracy provided by the equipment calculated as [math]\text{Acc}_\text{equip base} + \text{Mod}_\text{Impr} \times \sqrt{\bigstar}[/math]
 [math]\text{Acc}_\text{equip base}[/math] is the base accuracy displayed on the equipment.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{Impr}[/math] is the equipment's improvement modifier for the applicable attack.
 [math]\bigstar[/math] is the equipment's improvement level.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{formation}[/math] is the formation modifier for the applicable attack. Please see Combat for more details.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{morale}[/math] is the morale modifier of the attacking ship. Please see Morale and Fatigue for more details.
 >52 morale (sparkling) is [math]1.2[/math]
 3052 morale (normal) is [math]1.0[/math]
 2029 morale (orange) is [math]0.8[/math]
 019 morale (red) is [math]0.5[/math]
Important Notes
 Because of the number of modifiers to accuracy in game, it is trivial to increase accuracy. Therefore it is more important to prioritise firepower.

Main Gun ArmourPiercing Shell 
1.1 
Main Gun ArmourPiercing Shell 
1.25 
Main Gun Secondary Gun 
1.2 
Main Gun Secondary Gun 
1.3 
Important Notes
 It is inadvisable to run any of the other setups beyond the most basic Gun+AP. This is because the other setups will interfere with artillery spotting and cost you better attack bonuses.
 Unlike when calculating damage, the bonus applies to all targets.
Torpedo Attacks
This formula only applies to opening and closing torpedo attacks in day.
[math]\text{Accuracy}_\text{torpedo} = \left( 85 + 2\sqrt{\text{Level}} + 1.5\sqrt{\text{Luck}} + \sum_{\text{All Equips}} \text{Acc}_{equip} + \frac{\text{Attack}_\text{torp}}{5} + \text{Mod}_\text{ship} \right) \times \text{Mod}_\text{formation} \times \text{Mod}_\text{morale}[/math]

 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{ship}[/math] is the innate torpedo accuracy of the ship. Currently only Abyssal ships have values above [math]0[/math].
Aerial Combat
This formula applies to the airstrikes performed during the aerial combat phase and support. This also includes Although ASW support functions like an airstrike for damage, it does not use this formula.
[math]\text{Accuracy}_\text{airstrike} = 95[/math]
Important Notes
 Airstrike accuracy is a constant and not affected by any outside factors.
AntiSubmarine Warfare
This formula applies to all ASW attacks in combat phase and support.
[math]\text{Accuracy}_\text{ASW} = \left( 80 + 2\sqrt{\text{Level}} + 1.5\sqrt{\text{Luck}} + \sum_{\text{All Equips}} \text{Acc}_{equip} + 2\sum \text{ASW}_\text{sonar} \right) \times \text{Mod}_\text{formation} \times \text{Mod}_\text{morale} \times \text{Mod}_\text{synergy}[/math]
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{formation}[/math] for ASW is as follows:

 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{synergy}[/math] is the synergy bonus from equipping certain combinations of ASW equipment.
 Synergy bonus is either currently bugged or so small it cannot be tested.
Important Notes
 Equipping more sonars is the best way to boost ASW accuracy.
 Large sonars are not counted for this bonus.
Night Battles
This formula applies to all night battle attacks.
[math]\text{Accuracy}_\text{NB} = \bigl( \text{Mod}_\text{contact} \left( 69 + \text{Mod}_\text{star shell} \right) + 2\sqrt{\text{Level}} + 1.5\sqrt{\text{Luck}} + \sum_{\text{All Equips}} \text{Acc}_{equip} \bigr) \times \text{Mod}_\text{formation} \times \text{Mod}_\text{morale} \times \text{Mod}_\text{special} + \text{Mod}_\text{searchlight} + \text{Mod}_\text{20.3cm} + \text{Mod}_\text{fit}[/math]

 The value is [math]12[/math] for >> ranked planes.
Evasion Formulas
Evasion has several caps depending on the calculated base evasion of the ship. Base evasion is calculated as follows:
[math]\text{Evasion}_\text{base} = \bigl\lfloor \left( \text{Evasion}_\text{ship} + \sqrt{2\text{Luck}} \right) \times \text{Mod}_\text{formation} \bigr\rfloor[/math]
 [math]\text{Evasion}_\text{ship}[/math] is the evasion of the ship including any visible equipment bonuses.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{formation}[/math] is the formation modifier. It varies based on the attack being received. Please see Combat for more details.
 Currently modifiers for Vanguard are unknown.
The various capped evasion formulas to calculate the final evasion rate is as follows:
 [math]\text{Evasion}_\text{base} \gt 40: \text{Evasion}_\text{cap} = \text{Evasion}_\text{base}[/math]
 [math]40 \lt \text{Evasion}_\text{base} \lt 65: \text{Evasion}_\text{cap} = \lfloor 40 + 3\sqrt{\text{Evasion}_\text{base}  40} \rfloor[/math]
 [math]\text{Evasion}_\text{base} \gt 65: \text{Evasion}_\text{cap} = \lfloor55 + 2\sqrt{\text{Evasion}_\text{base}  65}\rfloor[/math]
Capped evasion is then modified by postcap modifiers:
[math]\text{Evasion %} = \biggl\lfloor \text{Mod}_\text{searchlight} \times \left( \text{Evasion}_\text{cap} + \text{Mod}_\text{sonar} + \text{Mod}_\text{CA} + \text{Mod}_\text{vanguard}  \text{Mod}_\text{fuel} \right) \biggr\rfloor[/math]
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{searchlight}[/math] is the searchlight evasion penalty. It is [math]0.2[/math] for any ship equipped with a searchlight (even if not triggered) and [math]1.0[/math] otherwise.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{sonar}[/math] is the sonar improvement modifier that only applies to opening and closing torpedo attacks. It is [math]0[/math] otherwise.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{sonar} = \sum_{\text{All Sonars}} 1.5\sqrt{\bigstar}[/math]
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{CA}[/math] is the heavy/aviation cruiser night battle evasion bonus. It is [math]5[/math] for heavy/aviation cruisers and [math]0[/math] otherwise.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{vanguard}[/math] is the Vanguard evasion bonus. This is different from the formation modifier that gets taken into account for base evasion. Bonuses are:
 For ships at the top (slots 12 or 13): Nondestroyers get a 5% bonus. Destroyers get a 20% bonus.
 For the rest of the ships at the bottom (slots 35 or 47): Nondestroyers get a 20% bonus. Destroyers get a 40% bonus.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{fuel}[/math] is the remaining fuel penalty.
 [math]\text{Mod}_\text{fuel} = 75  \text{Fuel}[/math]
 If fuel is above 75%, the penalty is 0.
 The penalty is an integer and not a percentage.
Remaining Fuel  Battle #^{[1]}  Penalty 

80%  2nd Battle  0 
60%  3rd Battle  15 
40%  4th Battle  35 
20%  5th Battle  55 
0%  6th+ Battle  75 
 ↑ This only takes into account normal day battles. Special nodes have different resource consumption.
Important Notes
 The speed of the fleet is supposed to play a role in evasion. Currently, said increase is either nonexistent or too small to test.
Special Cases
PT Imps
PT Imps were introduced during the Summer 2017 Event. They have a very high evasion rate and are next to impossible to hit with normal shelling and torpedo attacks. This even includes special attacks. In order to sink them, your ships will require specific equipment setups.

Important Notes
 Small Caliber Guns + Lookout + Machine Gun is the best antiimp setup.
 It is inadvisable to run antiimp setups on any ship but destroyers because it compromises their combat effectiveness.
 Having a reinforcement expansion is important because it allows the ship to not waste a slot on a machine gun.
 The values presented above are theorised to be fixed hit rates.
 This means they are unaffected by any outside factors.
 Certain that count as small caliber main guns can substitute for .
 Certain that count as secondary guns can substitute for .
