...that misses with missles due to range do not appear in the combat log as misses. If you are missing because of range, your log will look like you simply were not firing. This is in contrast with guns which certainly do register misses due to range as "misses you completely." Thanks to Xana and Torg for helping me solve this little puzzle. I wanted to post about it because I didn't know and suspect that many of you didn't know this either.
