If I wanted to hit multiple targets Torp Spread is obvious choice.

But which is best one on one?
High YIeld Torpedo is for single target damage. There was a brief time where Torpedo SPread was actually better in both cases, as the damage of TS was delivered in a single blow, instead of multiple torpedoes. That meanst criticals could beocme much higher, since they boosted the entire damage, not just the damage delivered by one of the torpedoes. Not that relevant in PvE, but in PvP, where enemies are constantly getting healed, delivering a single, massive blow before anyone can heal it is pretty useful (even if it happens less often). But since that is now fixed, HYT is better for single targets again.
