Longer CDs don't solve the problem.
I tried this setup(Dual Phaser, array, 2x har'peng; 2x Array 2x harpeng) just for fun a bit before it became popular and am using it ever since.
Why? Because there is no way to stop it.
Now for why longer CDs won't solve the problem:
Cruisers are still turning very slow, so even if they increase the CD my setups like the one stated would still work out fine.
The only way to resolve this issue is making them unique, or at least reducing the maximum amount of equippable har'Pengs to two.
Right now its a perfect setup for slow turning cruisers....
As for the OP case: See MelineAaele's post.
Escorts are turning fast, so your damage output is a lot higher when using cannons and Quantum/Photons
Its good for cruisers because the CD is about the time they need to turn around...
