Elite plasma torps
 
Is it really necessary to have something that can crit for 165k come out of a cube??? Why not balance out the damage all around. To me this is just being lazy and not completely working stf's like they should be.

And can any of the staff complete cure on elite? Can you guys do it and get the bonus? Probably not.

you can shoot them, your team mates should be looking for those giant green orbs, I do. You wont be destroyed by the plasma torps when you team up with me.:D I ve completed the Cure on elite.

I doubt Blizzard's staff are able to complete the hardmode raids they put into WoW, but players can, so what's the difference? As long as things aren't Mathematically Impossible, there's not much reason to complain.

And yeah, the torpedos hurt really really bad, but that's because they can be shot down. I used to complain about them myself until I picked up some beam arrays with bonus accuracy and stuck them on the back of my ship. Sideswiping the torpedoes with them, then switching back to my cannons when they're down has worked wonders to keep me (and my teammates) alive.

Equip Tactical Turret Consoles. They will auto-target high yield / destructible torpedoes. Its handy for just this sort of thing.


EDIT: I should be specific. I am not referring to the Weapon-Damage Boost Consoles, but the Point-Defense style ones.

This right here. You don't always see them. I died 5 times last night to invisible torps. Also... this is not wow...

Very true. I died earlier from an invisible attack. It was an amusing battle, though. The entire STF team was made up of MVAM Escorts.

I hang on the rear side corner of the cube to avoid the torps. I can't tank him if the cube is facing me.

I like to go to the top of the cubes.

Now, if only we could point directly downwards...
