I have never witnessed any Mine dispersal pattern increase the damage of the individual mine.

For example, my Mk XII Quantum Mine [CrtD] [CrtH] [Borg] Does 2,261 Damage, weither I deploy the standard 5, or use a mine dispersal pattern to deploy more. Unless it Crits, it never deviates vs Hull it's damage beyond a few hundred due to resistances or damage rolls.

Yes they disperse more mines, I have stated I know this. And I do know that more mines can equal more damage. Again my post was about allowing the dispersal patterns increase the individual mine damage beyond just deploying more mines. And I'm not asking for something as out rageous as a High yield in damage increase. But perhaps something marginal but enough to notice. Such as maybe 2%, 4%, 6%. At least then they do something other then let you spit more mines out.
