On my cruiser I swapped out a couple of arrays for DBB's and it is more manageable now, but turn and broadside is gone. It's all strafe and turn now.
I will have to get use to that. Cruisers are not really the ships for strafe and turn. Right now I have one Quantum launcher plus 3 DBB's fore. 3 arrays aft, and one Photon aft. Its cool that your weapon power returns really quickly when not firing energy weapons. We can offcourse go manual array setup, but it wont be as fast or as efficient anymore.
