Reminds me of lean pick charts. Although obviously completely different.

Just to pick up on your point about more than 25 launchers being overkill:

I have a 3 fleet 30 launcher triton build.  30 launchers with 4 salvo on each launcher = 120 hits per volley fired.  As firing on building always hit, irrespective of your weapons accuracy, this means 1hit ko on building (including turrents).  

This is great for avoiding dmg from brimstones as you can move before the turrents dead, as you know 1 volley will kill it...

Just sharing so others see the benefit.  Need 30 launchers to 1hit shockwave

New blog series: Considerations for accessible web development http://www.bettertesting.co.uk/content/?p=1608 

Consideration one: Produce a logical document structure http://www.bettertesting.co.uk/content/?p=1619

My aim is to try and get a couple of these done each week if I have free time.
