Front loading single cannons when pretty much every ship type has a varient that can use them concerns me for the same reason the old FaW did especially concidering potential Tet Glider/Dem/Plasma Console procs.
The DBB comment of mine is purely an effort to avoid annoying things on my part.
I agree about turrets to an extent. I think there may be issues of turrets when considered w/the 2.5% repair procs on sci consoles and the critH repair proc from the rep system negating a fair amount of damage. To be fair, Dem, Tet Glider, Plasma Sci console proc and the # of CritHs from turrets could more than make up for this.
Thx for clearing up the FaW thing.
everyone of those ship types you mentioned has at least 1 that can use DHCs too. with the beam array dps buff, the single canon buff is pretty tame really. it takes more then just the front loaded style to be effective. lots of buff stacking, positioning, and timing are required for them to be effective. or else its getting hit with any other type of damage.
