Mine dispearsal patterns ?
Anyone know what, if any, the difference is between the various mine patterns ?

Thanks !

Beta puts out all the mines at once in a bit flat pattern. Alpha puts out a few mines, waits a few seconds but out few more mines, wait a few seconds more put out few more mines.

You get the same amount of mines with both skills it?s just one put them out in a big flat blob and the other leaves a trail behind your ship.

The higher the level the more mines you drop.

EDITl; I really like dispearsal beta III with Beta II, very nasty for anyone that flys into that. For some reason you cannot mix two betas of the same type at the same type.

Beta is useful in STFs too. Doing a flyby of a cube is fun. :D you can literally dump the mines on top of the cube. then they all go BOOM! as soon as they finish their arming cycle. It makes me glad to be in a ship that actually moves.
