indeed if the game was set up accurately, beams would be great vs shields, and would reflect off the hull half the time do to the special armor.

cannons would be great vs shields, and would bite into the armor a little better then beams but still wouldnt be the hull killer

torps would get stopped or slowed down by the shields, doing little damage, but when theres no shield in the way they slam into the hull and blow holes in it, sometimes maybe even penetrating low armor areas and detonating inside the ship doing devastating damage.
