3. You have not faced a good tranny build with the breen cluster torp as their trump card... yet. But one day it will happen, you will be popped, or nearly popped by one of those torp boats, and you will understand what is going on.
let circle number one.

I fly exotic build I been flying trans scort for months. I know more than most people about this build.

I brought up shield because if you flown in sto long enough and you love min/max. You know a torp can 100% bypass shield if damage is high enough. Old tric use to do this all the time. Any one hit weapon can. it just take ALOT of damage. Ive notice the first 5 mine differ than the last 5 mines I think some of it has to deal with this mechanic of the game and I ve seen 100% bypass on Bop ask mini I got him in a 10 v10 last week, trust me he returned the favor =P. 100% bypass happens with trans cluster but its super rare and requires a full tac load up and alpha.90% of the time its 15-25k which is not one hit or op.

Last I defend trans cluster because I've been neutered by sci ship, almost to useless in some arena, only 10% of the time because everyone fly's escorts the rest of the time.

I have scared pre-mades into hiding in there own EWP, Trust me I know trans.

If it was me you fought a cluster was just one piece, balled up teams get clobbered by cluster because, you all together and mine and torp have a 1-3km aoe effect just like trico on balled up teams = hurt. I killed 3 but cluster was only half DpB3 was the other. Cluster will only cut half the health the other mines finish the job.

You mistaken btw you can get the equivalent of 6 consoles with breen set.

lol if you think clusters are scary I ve seen burn kill in 5 ticks and if your SNB your SOL
