# 111 Transphasic torps
08-03-2010, 11:11 AM
I don't know if its been fixed yet however I note from personal exp.

Transphasic Torpedos do not work with the AOE tac. bridge officer abillity you trip the AOE and fire with nothing coming out of the torp tube.

Don't know if this is a glitch or ghost bug but its been around form ar least 1.5. Not sure if high yield works with them never tried it

Thanks were so demanding.

Hello all and thanks to you for your many tests and sharing your experience. I'm quite a newbie but interested in details as lots of you. I've read a lot (not all though), and you've been testing a lot the impact of weapons in term of DPS.

What i wonder is a bit different and i hope the answer isn't somewhere else in the forum i wouldn't like to be a bother.

Here i go: (all of this is about space combat)

Does anyone have any idea what the formula to hit a target is? How far does my capability of elusivity impact my chances to evade attacks?

Furthermore, the bonuses on rare weapons that give you a +10% precision: same question: how does it affect your to hit ratio? Does the +10% affect only the weapon that has this bonus, or does it stack if you have several weapons with the same bonus, resulting in a +20%, 30% or more bonus to your precision?


Let it be.

Found the answer. It is here:

(I leave the post for players who, like me, expect formulas in a topic named game mechanics)

# 114 Photon vs Quantum torps
03-04-2011, 12:51 PM
At one time I heard that Photons worked better against shields, and Quantums work better on naked hull. Is this correct?

All torpedoes (except Transphasic) work the same against shields I believe.
Photons are believed to be good for DPS due to thier firing rate and Quantams are liked due to thier higher THY damage.

Ok the Disruptor Proc question; Does it debuff resistance to shields as well?

Retrofit phaser banks (from Enterprise) Are blue phasers that scale up, nothing speical, they appaly to the highest Mark availible to ur rank, if ur Lc they are Mk IV, Cdr= VI Capt= VIII (heres where it gets wierd) RA= IX UA= X VA= XI
They are just dual phasers, swap ur beams for Dual heavy cannons.

Heres a tip for anyone who wants to try to PvP, Sustained DPS dosnt kill players, Burst damage kills players. Pvp Quantum>Photon, Dual Heavy Cannons>Dual cannons for pvp the stuff that hits hardest is most effective, for PvE sustained DPS works well cause there are normaly more targets where 1 burst isnt enough but u need many.

1. 3x(+15) = +45 cannons, but what exactly does that mean. Does every cannon shot land with +45 damage, meaning that a 180 damage plasma cannon now becomes a 225 damage plasma cannon?
Consoles (of any type) don't affect your damage directly. They all add to your Skill, in this case Cannons, the same as adding points to your skill tree does. Consoles do stack, but all Skills have diminishing returns (which you can clearly see in the skill trees; the first point adds far more than the ninth point), so each extra console of the same type is less effective than the previous one.

A console to boost your torpedos may be more effective than the third cannon console, but I'll leave it to the maths wizards to crunch the numbers.

So, if you have the phaser skill maxed out, would it be a waste of consol space to equip phaser consoles?
