Somebody do me a favor and slap the mines on a T'Varo. See if the DPT launch reduces their cooldown. Just curious.

I'll try it on Tribble tonite if I get a chance.

Not that I am not saying that those mines are nuts, but ya know.. not everyone will be waiting for GDF to drop them that low (And be able to) for that super moment of OPness.
When i played around with them before we done the video just an alpha/dispersal 1 killed an escort.

You can try them out now... just go copy your toon over to Tribble, then pay the old DS9 Omega Rep vendors a visit. They can be purchased for 0EC each.

My fleet mates and I started testing both Nukura space sets on Tribble last week. When a carrier opponent is present, web mines were completely useless since carrier pets shot them down at high priority. Whenever my ship got caught my a web mine, I activated AP-Omega to break free.

Nukura web mines are available at T4 Nukura rep for 500 marks + 15k dilithium + some astrometric probes and industrial replicators. I placed one on my Fleet Defiant with DPB3, and it worked pretty well for what it was, but didn't seem that impressive otherwise. I'll test it out again at max Aux power to see if it works any better.

Its the combo of the high dmg and the high disable that makes these things BS.

Instead of the disable these things need to take engines off line for X amount of time or something...

The combo of 50-90% of your hull and a 2+ second disable is just plain dumb.

Yes. Firing the torp immediately after dropping the mines set the cooldown to 11 secs from 24.

I've been using this ALOT in pvp, the stun needs to be removed and the damage needs to scale down drastically with low aux.

This thing is ridiculous.
12th Fleet Are recruiting Active PvP'ers.
We have Full T5 starbase, Teamspeak and over 200 active members.

Go to Recruitment room and beam up! You'll be glad you did.

How so?

The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?
