Clearing the radiation DoT does not prevent the final detonation.

Shoot a player with lots of hargh'pengs, wait 15 seonds and watch him die. I suppose if the ground revamp is only half as balanced as this new item, we will all have great fun once season 4 hits.

Since I have the utmost confidence in Cryptic's ability and determination to preserve (or if necessary restore) the balance of the game, I am sure we can expect either a confirmation that this is indeed intended behaviour or a fix by the end of next week.
I really think you are only crying because we killed your FAWbulous cruiser today with a new all HARD PEN ship, and this happened even with Era healing you
I also think that the new torpedo it's quite balanced, keep up the good work Cryptic.
