Is the inherent ability of ICY HOT and BASE LINE affected by Accuracy?
no. accuracy effects the ability that procs on enemy fighters, doent effect abilities that gives buff to your own team.
This is from the 4.0 patch notes thread that introduced Accuracy:
“ACCURACY increases the percent chance of a Fighters Signature Ability activating, up to a cap of 50%. For example, INKLING has a 25% chance for Special Moves to be UNBLOCKABLE. With 50% ACCURACY, INKLING now has a 37.5% chance to activate UNBLOCKABLE Special Moves.”
Neither Bassline nor Icy Hot have signature abilities with a % chance to activate so neither of them are affected by accuracy.
Then, what about "METER GAIN"?
Signature abilities doesn't affected by Meter Gain.
In order for a signature ability to be affected by accuracy, it needs to say there is a %chance of something happening. I don't think there are any signature abilities that say there is a %chance to gain meter.
Regarding meter gain affecting signature abilities, this is from the 4.1 patch notes:
INSTANT METER GAIN, featured in the Signature Abilities of BIG BAND - BEAT BOX, ROBO-FORTUNE - PROTOTYPE, ELIZA - STAND OUT, etc, is no longer impacted by the METER GAIN STAT. Meter gain over time (SQUIGLY - DEAD HEAT, CEREBELLA - TOAD WARRIOR, etc) is still impacted by the Meter Gain Stat.
What About Heavy Reign?
Heavy Reign gains fixed amounts (instant gain) of meter based on her SA, so meter gain stat should not affect it.
You are right. Heavy Reign has a 50% chance to gain meter on critical hit and 50% chance to gain meter when suffering critical hit.
So, 50% accuracy would increase the chance to 75% chance to gain meter on critical hit/suffering critical hit. The amount of meter gained is unaffected by both accuracy and meter gain.
