If you're getting shot down too often, try flying lower. You're more easily noticed up high. I've survived entire matches by staying in the trenches.
I'm not saying the game isn't balanced, there's always a method for countering enemy attacks. My complaint is that a major part of a match is having to deal with all this "extra stuff." You're not just trying to outmaneuver enemies, you're also outmaneuvering all those enemies' mines. And even though the mines die with them, it takes about 4 seconds for that person to set out some more mines.
The game was obviously designed to be this way, so I'm not calling it broken or anything like that. But for me personally, I wish it had a little less of the arcadey stuff.
