Red isn't a miss, actually. The numbers are the chance of a hit (so 0.33 is a 1/3 chance of a hit landing). The colors distinguish bands of probability. Green is likely to hit at least 2/3 of the time; red is likely to hit 1/3 or less, and yellow is in between.

I chose that coloring because it clarifies how hard it is to get a hit when defensive skill is high, regardless of the attacker's skill, and how attacker's skill does make a difference when defensive skill is low.

Thanks for reading!
