Yeah, better turnrate, more hull, better shields would be great, too. And more BO slots of course.
Wait... isn't this Cruisers Online?
Where's the sense in using weapons with 90° arcs on slow moving and slow turning whales like cruisers?
Anyway that would certainly break immersion. Devs, don't do it.
Listen to what this man says.
Some things (well not all things, but we know about those :p) have been implemented for a reason. But if you want to have Cruisers Online we can make u have BoP turn rate and equip DHC on your cruisers.
