Sucks when you are only able to fire half of your weaps and they are the 2nd weakest. At least cannons can put out some DPS when you are only using half of the hardpoints.

Turrets arent the answer to everything (my support cruiser uses 4 beams and 4 torps). But 6 turrets > 3 beams anyday, wishing beams were powerful is not going to win anything.
