Unfortunately, art in this game can have an impact on performance.
We can start with one of the most complained about ships with a poor turning axis points, the KDF raptor, and we can zoom ahead to ships like the Jem Heavy Escort Carrier and now the brand new Mogai Destroyer.
What do these ships have in common? Their pivot point is towards the rear, which means their fore arc is negatively impacted.
This is fine if you have massive arc weapons, but the ships above are all designed to utilize 45 degree narrow arc weapons.
In short I love my Mogai, but the rear pivot point is a real downer.
There is nothing more frustrating than having to fight with a ship's model to squeeze performance out of it.
