I just ran into someone dumping mines at the spawn point at ESD.

Due to the new changes in splash damage to teammates, basically the mines turn into grief-devices now. I tested out a tricobolt mine doing the same thing, and yes you can even kill Lt. level ships with this.

It needs to be address, hopefully removed from the game. The whole idea of team-damage from projectiles and mines is just a bad idea waiting to happen...

Don't mines need an enemy within proximity in order to activate?

When they run out of time and expire, they explode doing splash damage now.

Ya, but Tricobalts have killed new miranda, right when they warp in.
If they was a gang of people droppin LOADS of mines, it could kill stronger ships.

Maybe disable the mine damage in non-combat space zones.

Is this why ESD loading sometimes hangs?
