So, nope. No more counters needed. In my opinion, anyways.
You're vastly overestimating the usefulness of torpedoes against a ship that is still shielded. You cannot fire enough torpedoes to compensate for the fact that their damage is reduced by 75 % against shields. Due to the torpedo cooldown mechanics, you can't even build a "torpedo boat" that fires nothing but a stream of torps.
Feel free to bring 4 friends and try it out a few times if you don't believe me. I'd even be your RSP punching bag.
