I have been using this in stf's lately to flush out donatra when she cloaks, and i have been using it in Ker'rat, but it doesn't work all of the time. My question to the kdf-side: Have someone used it on you, and if so, what are your feelings about it?

To me it seems that it is a very nice weapon on paper, but usually it just hangs there in space without ever locking on, and when it does it's really slow moving, in fact so slow that it never hits the target.

Wielders and victims, yay or neigh on the efficiency of this console?

Flew a bop a lot when it first came out. Never worried about it then.

Never worried about it to be honest.
In fact, I think I've been hit by it a grand total of 1 time, and it was rather unimpressive
Fancy an exclusive, extended 21 day trial of eve online?

You don't see many people using it, but that could be explained by how poorly it works.

If you get a good crit with it while my cloak is up and shields are down... you charge up Go Down Fighting for me. I think you'd need a lot of people firing them at once for them to especially dangerous.

It is too slow. If it was at least as fast as regular torps, it might be worth equipping the console. As it stands now, not - the cloaked ship it should be looking for can just too easily outrun the torp.

I have never even been hit by it, ever. Or run into someone mounting it.

I remember testing it a lot when a friend had one and I still had a defiant, and frankly I thought it was a bit **** lol. You can see the torpedo, and you can hear it, kinda like the beep beep stereotype sound you hear in a submarine, it was easy to evade and once you got about 8km(ish) away it just stayed still and acted like a mine lol.

This is what I hoped to hear, that it isn't just me.
