Is this a possibility that this is random crashing that always happenes?

What you should do, is get a friend and create every single possibility there is for shooting a beam at a person and see which angles, flight, or combonations there is. Lets do the math.

The form is number and in parenthsies will be for what reason

9(characters)*8(standing/flight/bieng thrown/stuck to a wall/stuck to the floor/ rolling on the floor/recovering from the floor/recovering from the wall)*2(beamjumping)*2(beam or ball)**360^3(Basically a sphere around the target)*number(not going to caulcate possibilities for a beam struggle)*number(nor the possibilities for location relative to other things)*LastNumber(I forgot how many beams or balls there are)

Take all that squared(the second person) and you got as many possibilities there are. I doubt this has anything to do with generic beams. Just look at the possibilities that it deals with generic beams. The team needs more information before they go on this. I just assume its the random crashing that plagues the ESF game.
