Got off my ass and put mine up there.

But if they aren't doing that on difficulties they should...So wait, the solution to the complaint that ion cannons at reasonable difficulties (7.6 and 1 homeworld) are a non threat when they shouldn't be is... turn up the difficulty?Yes. At least partially. Ion Cannons are basically economic attritioners. If you constantly have "too much" resources you're playing on "too" low difficulty.
And its still more effective than all the others put together =pbeam dronesSo very wrong.
Mental images of walking down the carrier deck; here are the tiny needler drones; here are the tiny laser drones; etc... and here's the 1 fat oversized beam drone that takes up the entire fighter bay.
I'm not to certain the ion cannon needs a huge boost either, but I'm not certain it doesn't, either.7-7.6ish, not really, yes (golems at least, spirecraft as well usually), and no.
I do think it would be interesting to ask the following questions, just as a point of context to the discussions.
- What difficulty do you usually play on?
- Do you often play against harder AI types?
- Do you play with superweapons? Yours or the AI doesn't matter, just their existence.
- Do you play with multiple homeworlds?
