I pop my hazzard when I need it.... then find a wall of purple impacting my ship and even if I run, I know I'll die :p It's different for my Klingon, she rolls her eyes, sits through another SNB and acts like nothing happened, it's my Escort that doesn't like pengs

I'm just waiting for a 5 defiant team armed with pengs to decloak, announce http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LyM1UGD8sqM over zone chat and fire them all, fully buffed
Mmm.. Maybe

Just seem to remember your handle off a B'rel wih multiple torps/mines loaded.. Trics, Plasmaz etc.

hi everyone,

i've been alittle confused on these torps. i see everyone saying how powerful they are but i'm not getting that. i been trying to use them since the remastered missions and they do very little damage im lucky to hit for 5 to 10 points. most of the time they hit as hard as my fireworks emote does. even with no shields on the enemy. is this intended or it the torps being shot down like the plasmas and tricolts can be shot down. or am i just experiencing a bug?

If it was IKS EAT MY TORPS, then it wasn't him. I saw the pilot of that ship do a beautiful number on a fleet escort the other day, shield stripping and kinetic. I'm eagerly anticipating the 'peng coming KDF side to level the playing field a little.

They hit harder than an unbuffed quantum, the proc varies in how much damage it does, it it's like taking a torp to unshielded hull essentially. I've been shot with them enough times to know this. Hazards help, but don't solve the whole issue.

If you are a tac they are buffed by the usual skills like APA, APB, FOMM, if you are a sci sensor scan, APB, Followed by a Scramble is nice also. For engies you only have APB to buff them. Scramble does the most damage to a person with peng secondary since it counts how many "allies" are around. This is the biggest issue with the torp it should not be modified by fake allies.

The DoT I am fine with but since the de facto rule is to use them with Scamble you have a few fleets with sci ships geared with just pengs and scrambles.

Meh, for killing nub escorts in Ker'rat I take a TacBOP, 3x DHC 1x Quantum the cloakambush with SW-CRF3-HYT3-Beta1 - Instafrag in 9 outta 10 cases.

If only transphasic torpedoes can work the way Peng does, except without the DoT and doing less damage than an unbuffed quantum torpedo.

I can see a use for the Peng in an anti-carrier setup,the aoe is nice.
I think it's still a bit OP against escorts, but i totally ignore them on my cruiser. So I'm not sure how i feel about them.
I think the thing i hate the most about them is that only Feds have them. I REALLY hate that. It's like the Devs gave a big FU to my faction. here you go Feds, have a Klingon torpedo. You Klingons, no.
