... and this is exactly what should happen if a player doesn't pay attention and flies directly into a minefield. Standard procedure against ship damage (emergeny power to shields, tactical team, hull buffs) won't help mich, but there are lots of other ways to avoid or get rid of them: Cannon Scatter Volley, Fire at Will, Torpedo Spread, Tractor Beam repulsors (which target everything around the user, even cloaked ships and yet undetected mines). Escorts can simply outspeed them with hyper engines. Pets also help clearing minefields as does a well placed gravity well if you are in a science ship. If your are in a cruiser and mines are at your tail hit evasive or eject warp plasma.

the only complaint i have is that if one crits they all crit, this shouldnt happen.

but otherwise, yeah. if you fly blind full speed ahead into a field of ice.... expect to hit something and sink.

This needs to be fixed if the Dispersal patterns are going to be kept working with tric mines. This bug is the reason they are so effective in combat and why I advocate DpB being turned off for tric mines.
