As many others have said Turrets are weak.
What I don't get is how your claiming higher Crits with a lower base damage weapon. More Frequent makes sense, as you have 6 weapons at 360 with a faster firing rate than beams.
If you simply changed from a beam to a turret (same level, bonuses, type) the damage per a crit should have dropped. Also Beams have far less drop off than Cannons which are truly effective at ranges less than 5k.
I don't think it has enough base turn to try a Cannon Cruiser layout when the Excelsior seems to be a cheaper better choice for that.
EPtW with BO seems to be the way I'd go. But you'd want to put a Dual Beam Bank on the front and not be using Autofire on your beams for it to happen. You don't want the Overload to be wasted on a single when you got the Dual ready.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
