Devs, torps suck in PvP. Even transphasics are more reliable then Quantums or tricobalta etc these days, not even mentioning Photon torps lol.
Even with delicate timing its almost impossible for a target that keeps distributing shields etc to make a significant dent in someone. 5% shield left on a facing negates 99% of the torp dmg is my feeling.
Broken mechanic, Tacteam makes it even worse but i try to time between tacteams and the investement of torpedo investement still doesnt justify it.
