having accuracy trait, accuracy weapons along with crtH or crtD helps them to crit more often. i use AP weapons and i eat through ships faster than i did with phasers. i also tend to take out ships more in 1 pass than with phasers. comparing any of the energy weapons to each other is like comparing apples to beer- theyre meant for different things. many escorts use AP weapons precisely because of the crtH and crtD bonuses. no point in a cruiser or sci ship using AP weapons because they wont be able to take advantage of the crits as much as escorts do. it may be more expensive, but to say their worthless is a false statement.
all of the weapons have their advantages and disadvantages- its a personal play style choice. best bang for the buck are phasers and disruptors, but that doesnt make them the best in the game. it just makes them the most cost effective.
