Without one arc somewhere thats the specific kill zone, how does this get anything done?
Not so much criticizing, just going 'huh?'
In practice it is excactle the opppsite, The DBB extra firepower is put into a narrow 90 degree cone means the weapon energy is spread on fewer targets.
Side aft attacks are the weak the points but with careful maneuvering you can often keep your targets in the front arc. As an alternative tactic if this is not possible I try to run with maximum impulse and let the rear phasers and launcher make a few shots until I got enough distance to turn around for a front attack.
It is my personal flavor of doing things and so far it is has not dissappointed me. *shrug*
