Is BET a good option for WMs to take?
The reason I ask is that Nubians are far less important for a WM, also AMPs are not particularly useful on DNs (as they can't have last move). And Annihilators... well, I don't consider them THAT useful. In return you get far cheaper DNs and BCs. Is it worth it for losing the Omega torp?

I do not like it. I think the WMs advantage is lost if it isn't cranking ships out as soon as possible. BET is not much better than natural miniaturization, and the RWP don't make up for the handicap. Instead of researching to miniaturize DNs, You can just make fifty of them.

It probably depends on how you're going to play - if you're going for a fast start race, aiming for early or early-mid game wars then you want to be able to use new tech as soon as you get it, so BET would really hurt. If you're going for a mid-late game strategy focussed on hordes of BCs and DNs in the late-BB era then BET might be a nice bonus and keep your DN designs competetive with Nubs. However, since WM can generally best survive with the early start strategy, I don't think BET would be a great choice. You could get lucky and win an early war anyway, or find a friendly SS who just loves throwing tech at you, in which case it could be really nice, but I think it's too much of a risk for a limited advantage.
