I've been playing this game for a good stretch now ( I'm close to T5, but I can certainly hold my own in legendary matches )
I've recently enountered what I feel is a completely game breaking tactic.
This would be the co-ordinated attack of ships equipped with Scrambler pulse/ Scrambler mines.
You can completely wipe out your oppossing team with this tactic. You have a weapon that blinds players for 6 or ( up to? ) 10 seconds. There is no effective counter. ( well please enighten me, and please have a intelligent response. At least better than " warp away" , or "move" ) - Actually I prefer a reply from any players that have actually encountered this and if/how they countered it.
The last match I had where this was used was hilarious. At the end of the match the losing players joked " Oh there he is..scrambled. Wait go...scrambled. Oh cool game, scrambled." It is a completely debilitating tactic. And it was quite a boring match if I may add. The winning players actually laughed and wondered why scrambler mines are still in the game.
Some possible solutions to Scrambler Pulse/mines aside from simply removing them ( and please, the game loses nothing by doing this ) Add a timed delay before the effect is activated? ( This would an ok solution but is really a band-aid ) Or a keypad combination that the scrambled pilot needs to input? ( I like this because everything makes sense and there is a sensible way to counter the effect ) Moar suggestions please
I like the idea of this as an area denial weapon or a trap. I think the modules that use it that way or bombers ( because you CAN shoot them down ) are perfectly fine.
And I understand that there are players that may not have experienced this type of attack with the severity that I am describing. I just like this game a lot and would like it remain an enjoyable experience to as many players as possible.
