Just hit VA a few days ago on my 1st character. While I was levelling I tried pretty much every ship class at some point. Visually nothing beats a Cruiser, however I find I do "better" in a Escort. Heres the problem tho, I dont much like the gameplay and the "feel" of cannons. So my question is this:
Can you run Beams on a Tac and not totally gimp yourself?
Example: Front 3x DBBs + Quant
Rear 2x BAs + Quant (torp or mines)
I would arrange BoFFs with powers to take advantage of beams of course: BO, FAW, and HYT for the Quants.
Is this even viable or would I be better of running a beam cruiser? Im flying a advanced escort atm.
