There could be both "ship" and "ground" naval combat. Folks could fight with ships or folks could fight on ships...
Yes Virus!

I will be carrying these mines on my cruiser but having been on the receiving end of them I shall not be inflicting them on anyone else, I'll just take the tetryon damage boost from them and have done

nukara mines really need a nerf... they can still one shoot people... what is the fun of not beeing able to move or do any skills and just die... they should only be able to do like 3k per mine... and even that is too much when you can put lots of mines with the dipertial patterns

I think most can agree pvp will be better off without these things or their effectivness reduced. Changing its damage to kinetic instead of physical, increasing its cooldown and not allowing it to be used with dispersal patterns would be a good start. Or how about devs could admit introducing these mines in game was a mistake and just replace them with another item in that set?

I am not a Tac, so They are not OP for me.
Looks like another case where a weapon was designed for Science or Engineer and Tac buffs make it OP like Tricobalts, Tractor Repulsors, Photonic Shockwave 3, DEM Doffs, Isometric Charge, Cryo Pulsewave, Pounce, Lunge, Cannon Rapid Fire, Torpedo High Yield, Mine Dispersal Patterns, Turrets, Jetpacks, Party Poppers, Q, Bikinis, Orion Women, everything the KDF has, Carriers, lag, Fleets, Dilithium, Forums, and CHEESE!

I use these mines. I have used them in pvp and laughed out loud as some typical pvp hero, gobs off at people like he thinks he has already won. Only to fly round like a demented Gazelle, before being crushed inside the web like an empty coke can. Great satisfaction.

Now, joking aside, what i have noticed is all the people QQing about these mines are tac escort runners. You know, the kind of people that just like to pop all their cds and spam cannon while flying round in a circle. Heaven forbid there is a weapon they actually have to think about that might interfere with said circle spinning and cannon firing.

I have played tac escorts, in a tac escort and popped them with mines until some of them asked me to stop using them. How pathetic. Sometimes i oblige and win anyway, and sometimes i oblige and lose, and then wonder why i even agreed to not use them.

I have played cruisers and sci masters, in the same setup and they laughed at the mines while ripping me out of space time with an astounding amount of projectile spam of their own.

Sorry tac escorts (which is probably 90% of the playerbase), but you lose.

Here is a crazy idea. Instead of repeatedly flying into the mines while trying to cannon alpha spam, and then throwing the proverbial teddy, why not come up with a counter, and implement it? So sick of cry baby bad sportsmen Tacscorts. They gob off like crazy half the time and then you annihilate them, its not their fault. I am not saying im some awesome pvp player, because i am not. I dont like losing either. But i am still a good sport about it.

I dont cry hax when something kills me, i find out what it is, how its used, and then how to beat it or get round it.....i thought that was what everyone did.

Last point. The web mines should not be nerfed for another very good reason. Its the best damn thing in the whole Nukara repuation, if you nerf it, then nukara rep will be a joke.

Pretty sure i said playerbase and mentioned nothing about 'teams'. I wasnt talking about cheesy premades, a lot of people PUG as well.

Maybe not that many of the playerbase even bother with pvp, but the fact is tac escorts are by far the most numerous over anything else.


Oh, and now you can go back to your Gorn chat on Risa with the other 12 year olds.

escorts are not the ships for cheese but you would /should already know this from your fellow kirk roleplayers.
