This I doubt. Perhaps at the far end of the damage cone, but not up close.

The only limit is the fore mounted Beam arrays can not fire backwards down the ship and the aft can not fire forward if the ship is facing its target head-on.
Roach,

To be correct beam arrays have a 250' arc. I wish they would be 270 because an Excel' with DBB and torps wouldn't have a "blind spot" of 10' on each side on a beam boat version.

Its all about the resists mate I've eaten plenty of them in escorts without death. That torp spread though just irritates me at times.

My mistake, though it doesn't destroy the point I was making - that Beam Arrays overlap just fine as they are set currently.

I would have no issue with Beam Arrays ( not DBBs or HBs) having thier firing arcs upgraded to a 270 degree setting, DBBs being increased to 180 degrees and Heavy Beams with a 90 degree firing arc (if they arrive)

Of course I would expect DHC's to remain at 45 Degrees, DC's to be opened to 150 degrees and Single cannons opened to 250 degrees to compensate for the ease by which beams could be used in combat.

Cruisers need an instruction manual.

I think you place too much faith in Feds being able to read or follow instructions Roach.....
KDF Future with Cryptic. Fact.

What Cryptic should consider before releasing anything.

Luckily it doesn't rely on faith as many in the forums are willing to help them when they have questions.

The sadness is that so many would rather complain than learn to play.

You are correct that it doesn't destroy your point, I just wanted to correct to maintain accuracy in statement.
I'm not sure about DC's being expanded to 150', maybe 90'. I'd argue the single cannons arc is just fine at 180'. What DHC/DC need is no vertical 45' restriction their firing arcs, its silly the small vertical arc that they can use a.t.m. .

Yup. Up close.
As Bareel said, it's all about the resists. And timing.
Sometimes she fires it off before it should (according to the animation), then yeah... most of the time that one gets me. But if I know I'm going to get nailed by it (evasive is down or whatever), then I throw up every resist and the kitchen sink, close my eyes and hold on to something
