Yes indeed! I'm the crazy person in E-STFs volunteering to sit in front of Donatra to eat torpedo spreads. I also sit on top of Gates and volunteer to tank the tactical cubes.
And yea, I feel alone there too. It seems a lot of people die after a barrage or two. People rightfully fear the gateway's "invisible torpedo of death", but honestly, I just think about it like tanking a Cube heavy torpedo. The right boff abilities will negate it as if nothing happened.
