We play that if the vortex is over the base that the shields are effectively
useless as the vortex is inside. The hits are done straight to the titan. As
the vortex is within the shields, they do no good.

Why wouldn't it scatter? If it acts like a misile, it acts like the misile
rules. Usually the scatter is never enough to move it away from the titan
they are aiming at anyway
