Thank you, well-spotted.

 
So I finished up AoA.  I eagerly await WiH and the nasty-ass projectile weapons of the UEF.  If a frigate can do that much damage to a Raynor, the GTVA will have one hell of a hard fight on their hands.

How much damage did the Renjien do? I've never seen it deal more than few percent.

14% for me.

 
Took it down to 63%.  On Very Easy.  Of course, for some odd reason the Raynor wasn't firing its beams. :confused:

That's because you're on Very Easy -- it makes friendly capital ships weak as well as enemies.

The infrequent beam firing might have been due to a SEXP problem or (in-story) due to dissent amongst the Orestes' gunnery crews.

Yeah, playing through the mission on Insane, the Renjian did about 11% damage -- but, on the other hand, it didn't have railguns, which the Karuna types in WiH will. So yes, SpardaSon, I think we can anticipate some awesome stuff from those ships.

Despite what I was saying in the other thread about the two factions being pretty fairly balanced, and the GTVA having a slight edge with the beams, I really love the UEF ships, and I think their gritty missiles-and-railguns feel is really appealing.

Also I think that the railgun can easily target large beam turrets (like the Hecate frontal beams) being priority, as well as normal turrets without having the player to fly over to take them out. Especially on broadside battles.

Beams can do that too, though. It's not like it's an advantage of one or the other.

I've found that high-damage, high-velocity projectiles are far more effective at disabling subsystems and turrets than a direct-fire beam, purely because they generally have a higher rate of fire. (A BGreen fire once every 30 seconds).
Slash beams are quite good at destroying poorly armored turrets, however, and can destroy several in one pass.

At this rate, this thread is going to be split, and this part moved and fused with the Railgun vs. Beam discussion in the BP forum. (yes, there's already a thread for this).
