Okay so far I have been running the cruiser type ships with all turrets (one energy type) with supporting tactical equips and shield enhancing engineering consoles. It is very fun i seem to put good damage on my targets (from any angle) and I can take a beating to. My question is (sense 8 turrets for the next cruiser type will be an expensive venture) will this set up be a viable useful setup for the end game (I.E will i get kicked out of raids and the such for having this set up?)? Or will it just be a massive waste of energy credits and time?


Thanks for any responses

s.w.a.t.

While all turrets is lower on damage output, it's consistent from any angle.
Beams in general are better on a Cruiser.
Excelsior can do cannons/turrets.

What cruiser where you planning on flying?

Putting all turrets on a cruiser is an option. However, the best cruiser for this would be the excelsior, because you could have CRF 1, & 2. But if you are going to fly the excelsior, I would recommend cannons/turrets, or all beams because it has the highest turn rate of all cruisers.

P.S. You won't get kicked out

I was thinking the star cruiser at first then save up dilithium for an escort (of which will use heavy cannons). Based on some research I see many people saying go all beams with a torp or just full beams. Guess i'll go beams and just use an all turret build for the days i just want to have fun =)

I've seen all turrets in action a couple of times - not recently - and it is pretty scary when it comes at you.
