torpedos have a shared cooldown?

There is a way SORT OF around this.
High yield has a cool down of 30 seconds. All high yield skills are on a shared cool down of 20 seconds. This means you can activate one, and then have a ten second crossover period when you can activate a second one. Because torpedo shared cool down is 3 seconds, you can fire one high yield volley, and then fire the second high yield volley 3 seconds after it. It does work, I have done it as a test.
However, this is difficult to pull off, particularly in something slow like a cruiser. It really isn't practical.
If they lowered the shared cool down of the high yield skills to something more reasonable, like 5 or 10 seconds, it would make multiple torpedo volleys a possibility. This would still require timing and skill. I'm not counting on that ever happening, however.
