Question on ranged (in General)

I have a +140 AxBow and I'm shooting with a character of 7000 Dx against a character with UC and a negative dex after EC.

How is it possible to always miss all 3 ranged rounds? Does dex not figure into ranged much?

UC confers Evasion, which provides defensive DX and PTH reduction. The evasion level is multiplied in ranged rounds -- x3 round 1, x7/3 round 2, and x5/3 round 3.

Let's just say UC's evasion in ranged is an exceptional case :P I remembered when I had +88 UC a few months ago, no one in my PR range other than mages & explosive shots can hurt me in ranged.

I could never figure out how it worked, but it's a miracle :P

I guess the math works if you assume a defensive dex bonus of about 500 or so and a penalty to hit of about 150 or so.

I tried it with my tank who has a 800K dex. Even with 800K dex and a +140 weapon vs negative dex and unknown UC, I was unable to land a single hit, even in the last round of ranged. Evasion seems overpowered to me. Seems like he's applying somewhere over a negative 300% chance to hit for that UC in all rounds of ranged.
