Let's think about this now...

Tric Mine, DPB, now, we'll (in our imagination lab) add in self-damage/friendly fire effects to ALL mines.

Foreseeable consequences: for those brave/foolish enough to employ these weapons in Ker'rat, I hypothesize that the results for the first few tries would be pretty funny-it's a long-standing trope now that Fed groups camping the spawn lay down minefields as part of their "Strategy" of park-weapons-on the-spawn-point.

so you'd likely see a small reduction in mines dropped by campers, but about the same level of mine-and-run (or drop mines as you die) counter-camping tactics.

espl if you take Stevehale's suggested counter to nerfing the tric-the tactic would become "Drop minefield-now RUN before it activates".
"when you're out of Birds of Prey, you're out of ships."

Look into Vanilla PvP if you're tired of the endless pursuit of grind, utterly unbalanced selections of geardo-inspired traits, and generally unbalanced and careless 'development' made mostly to turn this game into a second job.
