Every other doff of the same type reduce cool downs on the BOFF skills for that dmg type... accept torps... no they basicly make torps function properly... Torp doffs are the biggest joke in this game the more I think about it... they are a doff that basicly corrects a basic flaw in the game design... they don't add to anything... they basicly make torps work as they should.
I would agree that if cryptic wasn't lazy / cheep... they would implement a proper ammo system ala the omega torp... and torp doffs would reduce cool downs on HY and Spread patterns as they should.
It's not even remotely impossible the Omega torp's ammo hopper is a testbed for a similar change down the road. Don't all these new systems and gadgets have a... an experimental quality to them, this season?
And yes, I mean experimental beyond the occasionally quirky bits we tend to see with updates and new bits added to the game.
