i used the foundry mission 'battleship 1 on 1' for all of the parsing. this is a mission that keeps you in battle for 15-20 minutes straight and only has you fighting one target at a time, no aoe cheesing
and even if tehre WERE aoe cheesing, the 360 degree nature of beam fire at will > cannon rapid fire with just turrets.
anecdotal evidence is bad.
No. I didn't parse it. Instead, I simply timed how long it took me, on average, to kill a battleship one on one with the build I was using. Not quite the same, but far from anecdotal. Average engagement time dropped from 35 to 24 seconds.
