I am aware of the burst damage purpose of torpedoes, but for someone who still uses auto fire like me normal photons have a higher chance of getting through shields and getting buffed due to their firing rate. So they're good for lazy people.
Edit, they are also nice against boss pve ships when the team can keep a shield down.
The Somraw, K'tinga, D'Kyr, D7, Kumari, Xindi carrier, Xindi escort, and the T'Varo are all older than the Constitution Refit and yet they are tier 5. The rule needs to change.
