I'm checking bonuses for my Catalyst destroyer and according to the information on the ship there is a -25% Rate of fire bonus for all turrets. I installed a Light Electron Blaster I which has a 2 second rate of fire and was expecting the -25% percent bonus based on that. Instead I got a penalty that came to 2.02 seconds.

so It should look like this;

every second is divided into 100 Centi-seconds. ( everything below a second is base 10 math )

2 Seconds times 100 Centi-Seconds times .25 equals 1.50 seconds.

If the -25% is not a bonus but suppose to be a penalty then the math the game uses is STILL wrong it should be 2.50 seconds. And if it's suppose to be a penalty it should be listed in the Info for the ship as a penalty not as a " Role Bonus "

If there is anyone out there who knows EXACTLY why this is so I'd like to know. No guesses please, I'd like to here from a devoloper on this.
