So I picked up one of these new beam arrays and tried it out on one of my ships. I really liked how the phased tetryon arrays had a slightly different hue, and I wanted to see if the new disruptors look any different than standard disruptors.
Well, I wasn't able to see any difference. But wouldn't it be cool if it had some of the particle-around-the-beam effect that polaron beams do? (without the waviness) I think that a little visual difference would be enough for me to want to collect them all to outfit a ship in polarized disruptors.
