A big "thank you!" to Cryptic for setting Mine name and reticles to disabled as default. I really couldn't have done it without you! :D

lol... fixing screen-spam by making the most dangerous objects on the battlefield invisible to n00bs... well done...well...done...

EDIT: I think people have to get used to the idea of mines dealing damage. If I came at the cruiser with a full tac-buffed DHC attack, he would have been OK with having to fire every skill on his tray to survive. Because my attack is different, though I'm equally committed to it, he does not see the risk. My attack is far easier to survive than a DHC alpha, my whole build can be nullified by a dozen abilities. The way I see it, mines, if used more frequently, will force players to think not only about shield and hull healing. They will have to sacrifice one ability to deal with mines. Maybe, just maybe, this will make PvP healing a little bit weaker? (at least i dare hope..)

so twofold problem:
1. Mines being invisible to common people who don't adjust their UI
2. People being used to conventional Escort thinking.

A fork in the hands of the right person can be a deadly weapon, if people choose not to defend themselves... :D (And I've spent weeks now, working on my forking skills ;) )

(also, i'm pretty max out... pull set of 4 purple XII trics, and 4 purple XII TCD consoles, and ofc skilled to the rafters in everything relevant... just wish my captn had acc/elusive traits :( can't wait for my 5-console AE though...)

One evil tricy forker, you are :p

hmm... maybe I can make a list.... just for fun...

Active boff abilities to clear mines:
Warp Plasma
Scramble (scramble me, and my mines will kill me)
TBR
PSW
FAW
GW
Tykens

Passives (to run away from the mines, who travel slowly):
Evasive
EPtoE
Engine battery
AuxtoD
Subspace jumper

Consoles:
Impulse burst
"warp-plasma related consoles"
Isometric charge
AMS
(Point defence)
Edit: Acetone Assimilator! (the best mine clearer of all!)


or... carry a photon mine launcer on autofire.

If everything else fails, target and shoot the mines.

Any one of these counters, if timed well, will save a ship from my dirty trics! :)

There wouldn't be half so much screaming about mines if Cryptic would go back and make the Admiral Ackbar BOff available to everyone straight off at level 1.

"And here, in it's natural habitat we see the elusive dassemsto. A calm and docile creature, the dassemsto employs an old and perviously pointless hunting technique in bid to kil it's prey. A skittish and easily frightened inhabetent, the dassemsto is none the less a fearsome and cunning creature not to be underestimated... - An extract from Reg's Big Book of Little PVP Facts.
