Less DPS, but also less opportunities for big crits.

Even on my Fed torp boat where I have 3 front photons and spam a torp every 1.6 seconds, dealing pretty damn good DPS against unshielded targets, crits, while big, are less frequent and not much bigger then the crits you can get from DHCs, which you get far more frequently.

I don't see anything wrong with a cannon build, but even I won't run a full 4-cannon build, which is why I keep the DBB for spike/shield-busting. I'm all too aware of how effective torps can be, but I don't think they're needed on the Flor'Kaht.

Even with my build I still out-DPS 99% of the retarded Fed pubbie rainbow-boats I get teamed with in ESTFs, so..
