# 1 Can Beams get some love?
06-22-2011, 03:49 PM
OK, I have been playing from the start and all of the changes.... can beam weapons have some what of a chance against shields? Five beams at 125 power don't even scratch end game shields, yet a escort can rip ships shields and half the hull of a cruiser. I'm sorry but as it stands a escort has like 80% of the defense and 1000% times the bust damage of a cruiser. Designers....

Weren't beam weapons suppose to be good on shields and weak on hulls?
Can engineers get some form of offensive capacity rather than EWP, and other weak powers?
Why can an escort tank three ships and still get kills?

I could go on, but I'm not seeing the assault part of my assault cruiser.
