Why in the world is the emission torpedo so slow? It's stupid that I can outrun my own topedo going normal speed. Why bring a torpedo from the canon world if you not going to make it right? The torpedo was designed to catch cloaked ships, especially Birds of Prey. It can't do that if its flying at the speed of a tricobalt device. I have yet to hit a Bird of Prey because its so slow.
no, the fact that it is a console that adds 19 to sensor (beside the stealth stat, the most useless)
The benefit it gives...a "chance" to disable engines for a short duration, is by far not worth a cosnole slot. That alone make it a crap device+gimping your next torpedo to a near 0 mevement makes it even worse.
even with standard photon speed, you would have wasted a valueable console slot for a situation that arises maybe once during a PVP match against klingons.
but that is ofcourse entirely my opinion...but i suggest anybody seriously using it should make a little "pro and cons" list. would love to see the list that comes out with more pros for this console.
Noone said it's great for pvp queus. But great if some Open PVP zone is implemented. I can imagine how you can nicely abuse BoPs in Kerrats with it..or rather you could if it was fast. It is also one of the piece for dedicated sensor boat.
Not saying it's worth it. Saying it could be worth it.
