Someone here posted a video earlier where these guys were getting murdered by DPB Tric mines.

It's ridiculous. Look at that, 2 man team just owning a 5 man with Trics.

And those aren't noobs there, you have Jedinikon on there too.

There's no way in hell that a 2 man team of JHAS with pure burst would demolish a 5 man team unless they were the worst players of all time, that had the most utterly fail builds ever as well.
Again, it's the DPB Crit Chain that's deadly but unless the player is using the Tippler Console in the Vesta with Trics or you happen to be facing an all-tric premade (which generally is unlikely), there's absolutely no reason a PvPr with any common sense should be hit by those things, especially in a JHAS when they can be out of combat range within 1.5 seconds. It's the arrogant pilot who thinks they can park on their target's arse at close range and unload a fully buffed CRF without any repurcussions.

Videos can be staged and don't provide a reliable concensus.
