I think the idea of stationary hard-hitting objects is adding something of a new layer to PvP. "Active defence" has never been much of an issue for other ships than escorts, who try to blow up their opponent before he can wear down the escorts defences. Now all captains have to use some attention and also build their ships to avoid getting tric-popped.
Yeah, I don't underestimate tricobalt mines (especially since I fly a Hegh'ta in PVP), now that they are far more effective through shields. Nobody else should, either. The other mines are manageable. . .it's the trics that can kill you if you're not careful.
