It was that, but not solely. My thinking was looking at the risk vs reward to shooting someone in the back vs CCing them. This is something that I think only Impersonators and Forward Deployed Camo troops can do reliably (read: without too much of an order sink). Let's use a slightly different example in a Legate hacker (access to Cybermask and a DACCW) vs Angus. The boarding shotgun certainly has a lower chance to do at least one wound (79% vs 93% with MA4), but there is no risk. Angus has a little less than a 5% chance to dodge (through change facing). However, in CC that small 4% chance the Angus has to crit (without being cancelled) means a dead Umbra. You can also see that you don't need to be the best gunfighter in the game in order to have comparable chances for success. I would rate an Umbra as "competent" at best with a gun. Now perhaps I am overstating the woes of CC. I admit I haven't looked at this as closely as would be necessary to actually implement such a change... it was simply an idea (one I presented with the purpose of hearing feedback like this). And it wasn't even the one that motivated me to write this up (that was condensing the charts into one with additional effects for the other CC-related skills).
