Random Chance of Reversing

PM doesn't care about GF's, but a movement that is easy for a GFT gun to hit is usually easy for a PM gun to hit.

If you could fit a .08 probability of reversing every tick without loosing performance elsewhere, that would be amazing. The reason Yatagan's movement is small enough to fit distance control and good energy monitoring is because it's so simple and elegant. When the enemy fires, either never reverse, always reverse, or have a random chance of reverse or not reversing.

I guess we'll try a distance of 200/220 in the next version. It will almost certainly harm performance against HOT, but the gain against PM might make up for it.
