Hello!

Firebird is just as powerful in the HTML5 version as it is in all other versions of the game. What I think you are running into that could decrease the power of your turret is other Players having protection modules against your turret, which would decrease the overall damage they take from your turret, or they could be using Heat Resistance or Heat Immunity, both of which have the same effects of lowering the amount of damage an opposing Firebird deals. You can find information about protection modules here, and information about Hull Augments in this article.


Hope this helps!

I agree with the questioner.  I observe two things as I play an hour plus everyday for several years now. First, new Overdrives and other modifications seem to have made ranged weapons stronger, as compared to proximity weapons like Firebird, Isida and Freeze. Second, many hulls and augmentations now seem to shrug off my flame attacks. Admittedly I am biased, because I am a dedicated Firebird user, but I remember fondly when flames struck fear across the battlefield. Now, even though I am Mk7-11, enemies seem to shrug off my attacks.
