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."

Are you KDF looking for a reason to log in to your KDF Main? consider that every time you do, you're giving the finger to the people that want the KDF as a faction to die out from neglect.
