Actualy reading things pefore posting will make you look smarter than yelling loudly. Reading comprehension is aparently a lost art.

It has been this way since S7 went live and the devs wont own up they broke them.

I see regular crits from the borg above 100k in elite stf's.
No ship in the game can survive that, even with all the buffs and armour, especially as it one shots you through 100% shields and hull......

Here's an example.

Don't get hit by the giant, slow moving, destructible plasma ball of death. It's suppose to one-shot you for being stupid.

Either move away from it or shoot the damn thing down. This is STOs version of standing in the fire, it's a stupidity test.

If your one of those people who likes to pretend that every Heavy Plasma torpedo he gets hit by is invisible, then run scatter volley or FAW and you'll kill them without even trying.

Again, if you get hit by a Heavy Plasma torpedo; you are suppose to die.

So, how can we defend something that is invisible?

No, you are not supposed to die to one shots. If you have no shields yes, but not if you have 100% hull and shields....

Read the previous post, I already accounted for those of you that pretend like every heavy plasma torp that you get hit by is invisible. I've got hit by one invisible heavy plasma torp in some 400-500 eSTFs. Regular Plasma torps do it fairly often, but not the Heavy Plasma versions.

Yes, you are. It's no different than Donatra's charge attack, the Queens point blank AoE, or a Plasma Lance from those two guard ships.

Regardless, you can and do actually survive Heavy Plasma Torps if you have full hull, and most of your shields with Tactical Team and EPtS up (which should be about 70% of the time). You'll end up between 15-40% hull in an escort with a single Neutronium, cruisers can easily survive it. I know because I've been stupid enough to get hit by them a couple times and managed to walk away from it with some quick thinking.

The only ships that will actually get one shot from 100% hull/shields (by a Heavy Plasma) with a Tac Team up are BoPs or escorts that has absolutely nothing in kinetic resists.
