500k No-Holds-Barred Tourney (Complete)

(2016-08-03, 09:20 PM)Varien101 Wrote: With 112 dmg for maximum effectiveness, there should be only *1* LAM piece firing at any given moment. (I think continuous is garbage, and more so for LAM) Turn your LAM's into a 4Q and make sure that however much the dmg is / 100 is the amount of LAM firing pieces you want facing an opponent/available. So if it's 1200 dmg you can insta kill up to 12 missiles at once, each from a LAM firing piece. But 10/10 times when a laser fires it'll lose some of the power, so make sure you know how much power your dropping off your laser every time it shoots. (you can watch the firing piece and as you shoot the power will drop)

From my testing with the CWIS, a 4Q laser is 1,000 times more effective. The larger the CWIS the more effective it is as killing missiles, the slower it tracks. There hasn't been any "middle ground" i've found to make CWIS a viable thing especially in tournys.

So for smaller ships that can only field a few turrets, CIWS simply takes up too much space for too little output. What about larger (5k+ blocks) constructs? I see the AOE potential of CIWS being much greater for killing large, un-staggered missile swarms than the point-defense of LAMS.

Example: I have a hull in progress that's close to 150m long. Being an air/spaceship, it will be able to field guns both on top of and underneath its hull. If I place, say, 10 CIWS turrets firing 60mm flak shells on each side, top and bottom of the hull, that gives me roughly 20 shells splattering a fairly wide area from multiple angles. I say "fairly wide" because I would set the accuracy before firing at around 10-15 degrees to make them sweep the sky (hopefully).

Would this be any better than 3-5 LAMS nodes on all sides of the hull? I'm thinking a widespread flak/frag cloud being fired in front of the missiles would be more effective at area-of-denial for anything inbound on that vector.
