I know that High Yield does more damage to a single ship, but now that Torpedo Spread seems to actually impact the hull of an enemy ship, it seems that having Spread 2 would be more beneficial in the long run than High Yield 2.

But then again, Spread 2 hits up to 6 targets and most of the time, you only need to hit up to 3, unless you're teaming up against someone else. So then perhaps I should go with High Yield 2 and have Spread 1.

True. You could have Torpedo Spread I, which still fires 4 torpedoes at a target's hull directly, and you can target up to three ships. Then have High Yield II for the encounters where you need single target kinetic damage (although people have suggested the rank I version does more damage overall).
