After doing some Elite STF's last night I am just reminded of how weak beam arrays are in comparison to DHC's. In the last few patches the Borg spheres got harder with mobs and there HP rating was raised. Thats fine and dandy, but if you raise the hp of NPC's to make more of a challenge for cannon using ships, then doesn't that make it harder for beam firing ships to keep up? I was part of a put together team, that had mostly cruisers and one brand new carrier. I took us forever to beat "Infected" space last night. Beams take too long to do any damage to the hulls of the sphere mobs while trying survive. They are killing you faster than you can kill one of them. Beams DPS rating need to be raised to at least the cannons' level. Its like Elite PVE and PVP is only made for cannon firing ships to enjoy.
Firepower is the key to balancing the game for all types of players can enjoy, and not just certain types.
