# 1 Mines in PvP
02-17-2011, 11:58 AM
Whatīs your take on this oh so popular mine spamming (prefferably chroniton mines that slows enemies down)?
Does it make the game more fun? Less fun? Or just about no difference at all ?

I for one think it has clearly gone overboard and makes the PvP so boring and monotonous.
I mean if everybody spawn mines(chronitons) all the time , we all be sitting there looking at eachother..well looks can kill so maybe that would work too? Yea i know about counter measurements against this, but using that doesnīt make the PvP better/more fun still!

Personally, I think it's annoying and cheap. I really wish they'd rework the targetting system to give player controlled ships priority. It'd help a lot with Scramble Sensors too.

But, it works That's why everyone uses it. Photonic Fleet/Mine spam is a very viable tactic.

I believe the mine spamming is mostly in response to the FAW builds that became common. Perhaps the tactic will change soon with the adjustment to FAW when god and everyone else stop running FAW builds.

Just give us an option to tab target and cycle through player characters only, ignoring all the NPC crap. Also, allow us to customize our targeting reticule colors and highlighting effects. Right now, the thing we are targeting is too similar to all of the other stuff out there that might be targeting us. It's hard for me to figure out which way to aim sometimes!

So you who arenīt bothered by mines at all, are you piloting an escort?
And do you have to equip lots of counter skills that you otherwise wouldnt use?
It does bother me with the chronitons mines ,that hinders you from moving, all over the place(granted that i only use cannon scattervolley)- an escort must move and cant take such a beating as cruisers.

This is not an OP thingy. Itīs an "is this a fun way tp pvp-thingy"
Mines has itīs place in pvp but this is just to much.

Mines are an annoyance more than anything. It'd be nice to toggle the text above the mines because that's what seems to take up most of my screen.
