- The third is the remaining damage from the torpedo being applied to your hull after the shield failed. As you can see the shield reduced the damage by a huge amount while your hull took a ton. You did not have Brace for Impact on and only had about 35% kinetic hull resist which while good is not enough without abilities active.
no, this was on my tac toon in an escort. The unimatrix thingers randomly target people so bleh. normally its not an issue, im flying a fleet advanced escort with 3 threat reduction consoles, rarely do I take much damage. So, you're right, I don't have any resistance consoles cuz everything on this ship is dps. However, on the occasions that I pull threat like in ISE from the tac cube, I usually hit brace for impact, evasive, turn 180 and book it out of range... however, theres been occasions where I've been sitting at 12k+ out from the cube, shields have been 50% and higher, and all of a sudden... pop, I get hit by an invisible torpedo for 50k+ damage.

But really that is below sphere torp damage so it is a very odd low damage hit that was taken to your shields not hull.
honestly I would go so far as to say this hit was really below what it should have been, however, in the chaos of HSE I can't say for certain what was going on at that particular instance that torp landed, I doubt I even noticed it. But that kinda proves this is broken because the 5% variance that's supposed to be on the plasma torpedoes obviously isn't working.
