That's not a constructive comment in the slightest. The Railgun in its current form is pure cheese. There's absolutely zero counterplay. At least with Nova Cannons there's a chance the shot itself will miss, otherwise you still have a good chance of dodging it through special maneuvers. Furthermore, Nova Cannons have to chew through your shields first before hitting your armor.
On the other hand, the Railgun gets to go straight through your shields, its actually not that hard to hit multiple ships with it if you wait until the full engagement starts, and missing with it is all but impossible -- which makes it hilarious when someone does actually miss. Most things are cheesy when spammed, but that doesn't change the fact that even a single railgun is powerful. It's a free 100 points of damage done to every ship it hits with absolutely zero counterplay.
I've suggested two different ways to change how the Railgun works, support one or the other or propose your own way to fix it, but don't waste your own time with a useless single line response.
