So, I was watching the STOked Podcast (something I normally don't do) and I came across the description of Cryptic's newest console; the Point Defense System.
You can find the episode
Anyway, as I expected the ability was not so great. Only lasting ten seconds and most likely having a VERY long cool down. It does however work as we had laid out here in the Jupiter Dreadnought forums, targeting small craft and the like with a 360 degree area of effect (ok, we didn't say 360 degrees). It does 10x damage to small craft (fighters, probes and the like) and 3x damage (or 2x, the screen is blurry) to frigates.
My greatest disappointment with the ability is that it has a 10 second lifespan! Wow, how useful... Plus as I stated earlier, I would bet money on it having a long cool down.
So in conclusion, I don't think I'd want this console as the Jupiter's ability, it just sorta doesn't live up to expectations...
