your statement is still not accurate. For "straight" dps, beams do fine. theyre a consistant form of dps that adds up quickly for "straight" dps. "burst" dps on the other hand is better covered by cannons. Sure a BO3 is powerful every 15-30 seconds, but a bank of DHC's and turrets constantly firing on a target with a CRF every 15-30 seconds will produce better burst results.

FYI, in a 4v1 situation, if the 4 cant kill 1 escort (unless the escort is running which isnt considered tanking) the 4 are doing it wrong.
