To me, this looks like a 40% reduction in effectiveness... no?
PLENTY of times i ate ~5 mines and had no procs, but now that will never happen again. chain perma chrono proced to at least some degree is what we have to look forward too if a premade is evil enough to deploy this on mass.

And better mines makes GW/tykens a better ability to pack, so it's actually a little buff to sci/cc
"Transphasic Mines:
Increased shield bleedthrough from 40% to 80%.

Transphasic mines will disrupt the enemy shields, leaving a Shield Healing debuff in place.
For 5sec after being hit with a TP Mine, Shield healing is 50% less effective on the target.

Shield Redistribution will also be less effective during this debuff.

Debuff magnitude does not stack, but multiple hits will extend the duration of the debuff.
More mines make for a longer debuff."

k, unless they forgot to mention a proc chance, theres a 100% chance of that happening per mine with the duraction stacking. with enough trans mines, you could basically cancel out a running EPtS and TT, wile also making the standard redistribute half as effective. if you cant kill someone that befuddled in less then 10 seconds, you are fail. as it looks now 50% of your ability to 'shield' in every way is removed with a 100% chance, concurrent stacking debuff. its complete insanity. if these mines have a proc chance higher then 10%,
