Some of the Lockbox cruisers/carriers have a Cmdr or at least LtCmr Universal Boff slot that could build for mines, so it's not Escorts only but that's neither here nor there.


I got an idea! Just remove consoles and weapon types altogether and let Doff Passives determine everything, like they pretty much do now.
Generally speaking it's escorts that benefit the most from trics because they can slot DPB without penalty and lose very little (and gain a lot) from swapping out a rear weapons slot.

The freak crits that tend to kill escorts will kill cruisers too.

Truth is, you're probably one of the many voices who say escorts are OP aren't you? It's usually easy to tell who has it out for escorts.
I don't have it out for Escorts but I've seen the pattern most people complaining about mines and can generally tell most are Tacs in Escorts/BoP's. There are exceptions of course but cruisers, carriers and sci ships are pretty much made for support, including AoE so Mines shouldn't be getting near them but if you're a Tacscort, you probably have everything invested in frontload dmg which means having to pop Evasive or Omega to avoid the mines, thus giving up the upperhand and having to come in for another run.

The Jem Bug is the only escort that's a bit out of whack in PvP but they're more a nuiscance than a threat and they're still fairly scarce.

Sure, the fact that the pets have 20k hull+shields, and spawn every 11 seconds doesnt make a difference, right?

I say give the tric mines the HP of Danubes, or give the Danubes the HP of Tric mines! Also, give them the same launch speed. Then the counters would be fair!
