A few mines that hurt both friendlies and hostiles if their close to the explosion wont be a problem, those groups that run butt tones of chroniton mines and a few Breen cluster torps just may have to rethink their strategy. Maybe it'll help some of those groups that have always been really good at PVP but have stooped to running mine spam (among other things not the subject of discussion here) for any number of reasons.


Other than the mine explosions where are folks getting all this crying about friendly fire?

Grav wells, Warp Plasma, Tric Rifts etc are also being proposed for being candidates for friendly fire.

Still think this isn't just another dose of LOLCryptic?

Mines aren't the problem. FF for Tric/HY Plasma is (imho). And knowing Cryptic I wouldn't be too sure they will stop after FF for mines. From there on it is only a small step to include powers like TS, EWP, GW, TR, CPB, PSW and further down FaW, CSV.

At that point (which would be the worst case scenario and is for now far away) playing with an usual PuG you probably lose not because the others killed you 15 times but because your own team killed itself 15 times.

Build it anyway and use it when you're in a particularly bad pug.

Could be amusing to see a sci ship sucked into its own grav well...

I don't think its a good idea at all. Those of us that play in premades will be ok. Pugs will suffer a lot from this, which would put them at a further disadvantage, which will lead to less people playing in pvp. That is the LAST thing we need right now.

Cryptic hasn't said anything about FF for any other skill or weapon except for mines, thus far. That may change, may not. Until it does there is absolutely no need getting mad about changes that are purely speculation (torp FF)

As for pugs... well being able to shoot my own team in some pugs would be a blessing, it could counteract those cruiser engies that say "Sorry I'm not a healer" and those that grump at the escort for popping too quickly under focus fire (usually those same engies mentioned before), or when one gets on a pug comprised of engies in escorts (not bad but not good for team heals in my experience), tacs in star cruisers and scis that wait till their scrambled to fire their AOE's. Now that I think more about it,,, FF torps please!!
