Did they change beams?

It used to be common knowledge that 8 beams was a bad idea.
It's alright front/rear, but for broadside you only get the same cycle/firing as six.
So any more then 6 beams and you're taking up two slots that would be better off with more DPS .. say a dual beam or torp.

In other words, 8 beams does no more damage broadside then 6 beams.

Again, unless the mechanics have been changed in the last 6 months or so in this respect.
