Carriers make up for this by sheer numbers of fighters combined with carrier weapons. Yes cruisers have more hull, but they should be able to place a few good hits too, but the lower turn rates can be very preventative when it comes to lower firing arc weapons.

But then again back to a point that was completely ignored, what game breaking damage would there be in a 1-2 point increase?
Would it hurt something? dunno, but.... the "Space Whale" as you called it is tougher and slower than most heavy cruisers. this tells me the Dracon is at least partly correct.

Yeah, this.... I was able to tank those Elachi cone weapons reliably. And that was with a "dismal" turn rate.

I can haz joystick!
MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
