Err no ..
Sentrys = long range
Heavies = highest dps
like comparin rails to you know .. blasters .
Err, no... it's like comparing missiles with turrets, more like comparing heavy drones and missles vs sentries and turrets.
I won't repeat what was already said in this thread so far, I'll merely re-compare heavies with sentries.
Praetor I : 24 x 1.15 EM / 2 sec = 13.8 DPS ; speed 950 m/s
Warden I : 50 x 1.2 kinetic / 4 sec = 15 DPS ; range 50(+25) km
Berserker I : 24 x 1.3 explosive / 2 sec = 15.6 DPS ; speed 1050 m/s
Curator I : 50 x 1.3 EM / 4 sec = 16.25 DPS ; range 30(+10) km
Wasp I : 24 x 1.45 kinetic / 2 sec = 17.4 DPS ; speed 800 m/s
Bouncer I : 50 x 1.4 explosive / 4 sec = 17.5 DPS ; range 40(+35) km
Ogre I : 24 x 1.6 thermal / 2 sec = 19.2 DPS ; speed 700 m/s
Garde I : 50 x 1.6 thermal / 4 sec = 20 DPS ; range 20(+10) km
You can easily see that Bouncers have almost the same effective range as Wardens, but deal almost the same damage as Wasps.
You can also see that a SENTRY drone is the highest damage dealer, while a HEAVY drone is the weakest damage dealer.
Of course you also notice that Amarr drones pure and simple suck, even without considering their damage type, and after considering that one too, they REALLY, really suck.
No, you cannot simply claim sentry=range and heavy=damage, the reality denies you that right.
