I don't think it was necessarily a stealth buff, and Bort's post indicates that the devs are happy with the way one shot kills currently work.

It's not really practical to shoot down or outrun literally every HYT torpedo
, so I can only assume the devs want us to be one shot killed from time to time - regardless of whether you have used brace for impact or have full hull and shields you should simply expect to die.
