So this enemy can kill you. Easily. And this is a problem? Why is that? I don't see one. I don't have a problem with the Borg being very powerful. I don't have an issue with dying. And I know dozens of players who feel the same. Even if our deaths are sudden and inexplicable, we don't care. It's part of the game.
You aren't the invincible hero ships from canon. So get used to dying, it happens more often than not.
Now here's something else: If these Borg didn't have these "bugged" torps, would you ever die? Probably not. So these are end-game enemies. Don't expect to do end-game content without dying. That's what's broken. Not the enemies.
ok, unimatrix thingers, dontra, couple of other end game enemies have some very powerful attacks that can one shot people doing normal amounts of damage. borg high yield torpedoes can kill you if you're dumb enough to let it hit you. if you get ganged up on by spheres, ya, they can kill you. I'm perfectly okay with those because its a designed mechanic. these invisible magic torpedoes are not, cryptic has as much said they don't want it to happen. This is exactly why I stopped tanking on my engie in an oddy with all the resist gear in the world because this isn't supposed to happen and it makes this not fun. I've done all I can to reduce the chances itll happen to me by equipping threat reduction consoles and waiting a little while before I open up on the big guys. It still happens, its still broken, it still needs to be fixed.
