I'm not trying to flame anyone. I just thought that's the way the game was supposed to work is all.
Yes, but the point everyone /else/ is making is that torps /don't/ excel against bare hull. Energy weapons still provide greater DPS, which means the only advantage torpedos have is that the damage is done in a big, instant spike (and this might crit for even higher damage).

In order for torpedos to be made worthwhile, they either need to do /more/ damage versus bare hull, or energy weapons need to take a damage hit versus the same (even if this were as little as a 20% reduction in damage).
