i came up with 1207 dps with my disruptor DC ACC critH critD
and 1017 dps with disruptor single cannons ACC critH dmg (dmg modifier increases this value a little)
3 turrets add 1886 dps to 4 times 1017, wich would be around 5960, lets say 6k dps with single cannons.

DC would reach 6800 dps aproximately with 4 cannons in front.

considering the 180? arc of single cannons, your target really can't evade you much.

all buffed they reached 2800 dps with DC (would mean around 15k all together) and 2300 dps with single cannons (ca. 13200 dps)


i never imagined that they would be so close, really amazes me.

PVE i think i stick with DC/DHC...but PVP it seems, that you can deliver a lot more sustained dmg (180?) for sacrificeing only about 12% dmg. seems a fair deal, atleast to me
Exactly, although I find this setup works very well in PvE too because i can keep engine power high, move quickly and increase defence bonus and not really have to worry about aiming. Your turrets are always hitting and your cannons are hitting most of the time if you keep the front of your ship only angled towards the enemy whereas with DHC you have to be almost head on. Experiment and see what you think, it's the best setup I've tried so far but I'm sure something else will be even better when I find it. That's what I love about this game, the scope for modifications is huge, lot of fun.
