I just had a thought as well... After learning about the disparity between using the plasma torp consoles to boost kinetic damage versus using the energy weapon plasma consoles to boost the plasma burn I have come to wonder what sort of input people have as to which is more efective.

The raw kinetic boost wuality is pretty obvious. it gives a nice per-hit bonus to every torp fired, but of course shields mitigate a lot. While the plasma burn would seem better because the damage boost bypasses that shield entirely as a dot, but of course the player has time to counter it with raw heals or of course remove it entirely with hazard emitters- which -everyone- carries as it is one of the essntial abilities.

So I guess my question is... Which one do you guys think is more valuable? I'm still waffling between the two as it looks like one of those 'six of one, half a dozen of the other' situations. :-P


Edit---------------

Oop... nevermind. I did some testing and those statements I found elsewhere appear to be false- or corrected with a patch or something. with the energy weapon consoles, the burn did 163 per tick in my testing while with the ambiplasma consoles the damage was 258 per tick. Dihlemma solved.
