# 1 STF torpedos
08-08-2012, 05:22 AM
so, when can we expect the torpedos to be fixed? I could put up with the fact that the enemy torpedos are invisible, or that they can kill a cruiser with no problem trhough shields. but not both... now these are just ridiculous.

I was shooting at a gate, it was at 2%, when I entered into the "danger zone" aka closer than 9,999999999km, and during the three seconds it was up, and I was in there it managed to shoot a torpedo and shield drain combo. when it went down I noticed after two seconds, I got the reddish shield drain, I did not care about it, it drained basically nothing, than after another three seconds I was dead. from what? a torpedo. I did not see either incoming, and it was just ridicoulous...

the other is Donatra. for once it shot visible torpedo spread. now in itself this is a miracle alone, but the other miracle, that I survived. I saw them incoming, pushed all shield power to the front, brace for impact, and with 20% I survived. I was so happy, because the same spread destroyed one of my team mates. but after no more then 5 seconds ANOTHER (visible O.o) torpedo spread came (I barely got my shields up, and my hull to 75%), which killed me.

so either do something about the visibility, or nerf them. the former would be the better choice, since it would enhance the game, because it gives a new feature. visible stf torpedos (ikr, many would be surprised, that the gates and donatra actually can shoot torpedos).
the latter would be a half solution. it would take away the only edge of the borg, which would make them seem even weaker (and they are pretty weak), but at this point I just cant see this other than cheating...

If you mean the "invisible" torps.... yes they are annoying and most of the time they appear only when you or other team-players spit out a lot of pets. It's a graphical issue in the game engine, IMHO, witch can't handle to much flying objects.

you attak a gate and it kils you with invis torpedos?

never noticed that gates can shoot torp, that can be the reason you never have seen them.

well, the gate might shoot invisible butterflies that hit your ship with torpedo explosions, and deal 50k+ dmg. the issue is with the invisible part

Wrong. Been one shotted by a gate when there was nothing else around, and I couldn't even see what hit me. Had to be the cutting beam O_o
When in doubt, (hehe) c4!

yeah, it might be the cutting beam. though the problem remains. it is invisible, and deals 50k++++ dmg, which means it easily oneshots anything but cruisers (though I have seen those going down by invisible space fairies)

It's a problem i've been having as well. i'm not sure if it's a graphics issue though because i've had it happen AFTER a fight. Long enough for all effects to calm and the ship to explode, but short enough for the torp to travel to my ship. Usually i'm hit for 49k, which in an escort can be a lot. Especially when you don't know/see it coming. Although today in CSE both me and another guy were invisi-killed by the isometric charge. We were a good 5k apart when suddenly he exploded, then a moment later i did too. Full shields, full hull. We had just healed up after dropping the raptor when the Negh'var hit us. i found it kind of funny that they fixed the problem only to have it come back with in a patch or two.

Look this is how the gates work
First they target you with their shield drain (Blue Beam). Once your shields are down they will do an AP attack that does 0 damage. After this they shoot an indivisible Torpedo at you, and because you have no shields, this usually does a lot of Hull Damage. My advice to you is to never let them shield drain you long enough to have your shields down.

You could also heal your shields when they go down if you are worried. The Torpedo ALWAYS comes after the Blue beam and your shields are down.

I am terrible at this game. I have 7 Lv 50 accounts.

Gates don't have Torpedoes. You just underestimate their energy (plasma) damage.
