    Even though I love stacking mines on top of one another and it is an important strategy currently.

    I think the game would be better-off if it were not so easy to stack them.

    I suggest the hitbox for the mines gets shaped like a fairly flat pyramid. With a point at the top instead of a flat surface, mines will tend not to stack on top of one another, and by being fairly flat they won't interfere with other geometry.

    Mines could still lay in a close pile, but at least other people could then get a fair idea of how many mines are in that location. Plus, it would seem a bit more realistic.

    Pros:
    • Realism
    • Allows people to identify quantity
    Cons:
    • 8 mines in one location would do less damage then they used to do.
    • funny multi-mine tricks would be lessened.

    It's fine how it is. The only real danger of 8-mining is on escort.

    if you dont take defusal when driving its your own fault imo ...

    ... and dont tell me, buhuhu but noone repairs me, sure it sometimes takes a bit, but if you actively search for an engi and ask kindly over mic you get repaired 95% of the time ...

    No nerfs to mines, if you want to use realism then every vehicle in game should be destroyed or red hull after one mine.

    No what is needed to be nerferd is defusual. That should be changed to only disarm mine, no auto protection and then givien to scout instead of grenadier.

    Makes more sence that a scout that is at the top of team should be able to defuse mines then a grenadier that got only long range weaponary.

    Don't shout "nerf". It's an odd quality that makes it impossible to see how many mines are lying there. Honestly wouldn't it look cool to have a big pile of mines lying there? You could team up with 3 other grens to stack em into a big pile that scares people off just by looking at it.

    This doesn't 'nerf' mines. It just adds a layer of logic that is sorely lacking.

    how is it a nerf when hitting 8 separate mines is more powerful than hitting 8 stacked mines?

    I actually like this idea greatly, just can't think of how it would work, ok yeah you have the pyramid, but you are going to have people like commie that will ind a way to land the midn perfectly at the peak and have these floating mines, lol

    Can see it now, the doorway be blocked by a tower of mines, rofl

    This idea just makes a certain logical sense. Stacking mines feels sploity somehow, when you think about it.
