I very much appreciate the tactically-oriented approach you took while writing this up.

The minelayer approach is definitely a valid tactic for anyone who pubs or pugs STFs.

My Fed used to do ISE/KSE in a minelayer, but then I got to tier 5 on my Rom Rep and discovered all the nasty things I could do with plasma. Now I smoke a transformer in 30 seconds or less unassisted so I just focus on doing that.

Great write-up, anyway.

Ideally, every weapon in the game would have its own niche of usefulness. Sadly, that's not always the case (dual and single cannons, I'm looking at you...) but mines, while underrated, definitely do have their place.

Edit: Another great defensive tactic for mines is to lay a DPB spread of photon or quantum mines and then back up through them, so the mines are in front of you, and waiting to catch any destructible projectile coming your way, like say, plasma bolts in HSE or red alerts, or crystal fragments in CC.
