That means my torpedoes are doing ~3-4% of their total damage.
I belive that the logic is that torpedoes should be best vs hull and energy weapons are better vs shields.
But, wait, cannons are energy based weapons that are the king of dropping shields and taking out hull. Buffed cannon damage puts torpedoes to shame by several orders of magnitude.
Why does my very slow firing weapon get out damaged by a very fast spamming weapon? The logic is broken and thus so are the mechanics for torpedo damage.
I guesss a
should be created to boost damage vs Shields.
We already have a torpedo that bypasses shields (Transphasic) so it makes sense.
...Keep it in
