The damage output of the Lobi Store Temporal Torpedo was not intended to be modified in this change, and will be restored.
It may be subject to balance changes in the future, but was not intended to be changed alongside Tricobalt damage output.
As for the Tricobalt changes themselves, we're monitoring the performance of these weapons under the new changes and they are likely to be subject to additional tweaks. The massive spike damage that was possible using them on their previous cooldown rotation was causing an imbalance in damage-over-time expectations that could not easily be accommodated when balancing space combat.
