They're still alright. You probably won't burst a person down on your own with 'em in a split second, but as part of an entire shield bypassing offense they still play a useful role. Remember too that mines, Cluster Torps, HYT Transphasics, TBR's, Grav Wells, and FBP's can all be put up virtually simultaneously by the same ship. Do it with a buddy or two or three and it gets close to hilarious at how quickly you can circumvent shields and deal damage.

Unlike Shield Stripping and using quantums where you have to have to break their shields which may or may not be even possible to do single-handedly (given the prevalence of shield heals and the strength of Insulators VS Shield Drains) to connect your torps with the target's hull.
