Before when the proc happened, the launcher reset in a way that no torpedo was actually launched. Probably because the firing rate is so fast. I've had strings of like 5 pseudo launches in a row which did nothing, before I spotted it.


Projectile DOFFS doing nothing is an improvement over the previous state. On top of that the damage of this launcher is limited by it's growth of charges which isn't affected by DOFFS (yet).



tl;dr It's not a nerf. It's a fix for a harmful bug.
It's a nerf because now you can't use the Omega as a secondary torpedo to achieve shorter refire rates for longer CD projectile weapons via Projectile Doffs.

You're still able to do that without Omega torps.
