If you manually fire eq laser to attack ship, there is no limit on how many shots you can do before reload state is registered.

For example you can attack-click dozens of time when your laser is charged and it will fire multiple beams capable of obliterating any ship with one hit. Cool cheat, but I doubt it is intentional. =)

Yes, thank you, we are aware of the attack order abuse and will repair it after even more pressing tasks (such continued survival of our game studio) are taken care of :)
