Like in title.
It says 5s cooldown. Cool but after firing, there are like 4 seconds of waiting untill module is over. So 5+4 that 9 s cooldown. It negates DPS boost when compared to other broadsides. Yet range decrease is present.
Also theseadditional 4 seconds cant be erased with retaliator so hurts even more. Also consider making it around whole ship not just broadsides. To even out decrease range by 50-100 m for example.
PS. Vette bois are noobs. Especially light ones.
