Torpedo global cooldowns are being reduced to 1 second.

Say hello to mega 8 torpedo boats.

Everybody unequip your energy weapons.... these are not the droi-- guns you're looking for...

Stop buffing things that don't need to be buffed!

Science ships can now simply strip and stun a target while unloading a massive number of torpedoes. If Cryptic actually took some time and learned to play their own damned game, you would understand this!

With this change there is no reason to ever take an escort. You make no sacrifice in burst, while gaining more healing and control by taking more science. This is simply terrible.

On the good side, trics are not reduced to a 1 second GCD, juste tested on tribble with a 4 tric forward build. Not working.
But other torps fire in a nice solid stream of 1 second apart.

So that means, equiping more than one torpedo launcher wont gimp me anymore ? damn....

On a side note, I think it has minimum impact on torpedo abilities...its just a way to make double launchers more viable option, or rather slightly OP in case of double photons hehe... pew pew pew !

I'm no "true pvp expert" nor emo queen so I will reserve my judgement for now...

I just find the change a bit funny, because it's slap to those boring all energy cruiser/escort types

I smell nerf to shield stripping builds in the future as well.

So... Let me see... The default PvP build now:
  • Get Intrepid
  • Equip 2 Torps and maybe BA or Tric, fore & aft
  • Load CPB3, TaB3, Heals to Suit
  • Load Torp Spread
  • ???
  • Profit...

*sigh*

how odd. i think the fore and aft cooldowns should be unlinked, but the global? i think there should be a global cooldown for all the forward torps, and then a separate cooldown for all the aft torps. each unassisted by station powers torpedo launch should also consist of 3 or 4 torps launched as well, not just 1. then rebalance the station powers, fix the 1% shields canceling out torps, and torpedoes will be basically correct, and useful. a 1 second global is asking for exploitation

Meh, the BoP can do it too, the Intrepid will just do it better. ;-)

You're right, though, I forgot the PSW shenanigans too. LOL
