Torps are now PVP only, they weren't changed, tweaked or adjusted.
Cruise is the weapon for missions, unless they do adjust npc behaviour, some will say they still have uses but in effect they are pvp tools.
Bah. Torps are not pvp only. Ratting in 0.0 is better and faster now, given a proper setup. Anyone who actually tries will come to the same conclusion.
Oh right. That doesn't apply to people who only grind isk with missions and pop noobs in lowsec for fun.
But for 0.0 the torp change is only for the better though. Better ratting and pvp capability.
I rat and do exploration very easily with Javelin Torps. I seem to take down BSs as fast as before and I take out smaller ships even faster.
Also as others have mentioned, Cruise missiles work just fine for these things or missions. The only people really affected are those that completely maximized mission fits for top ISK/HR runs, and now they've had thier efficiency reduced a little bit.
I now have a reason to fit extra Ravens with PVP fits, WIN/WIN if you ask me.
