Having extensivly played Frontier Elite II back on the Amiga 1200, I never once found a real use for the Plasma Accelerator weapons.. Even the 100mw felt like overkill. 😈
I myself always preferd the 20mw beam laser as it makes a mess of most targets in a single glance, and it's a lot smaller.
I'm just getting into FFE and my main question is. Is there actually a situation when you would actually benifit from the Plasma's? in Frontier I never saw any ships attacking me weilding anything mote than a 100mw and then it was rare.
I have just always though of the plasmas as the "I WIN BUTTON"
