Just be ready to RESPEC your capt so you'll have skillz to cancel the debuff, and your TAC has APO. Ship may also need inertial dampeners, and capt skill if I read it right.
Assuming someone ran over a cluster under the old system then you have to use this probability formula...
1 - ( ( 1 - x ) ^ y )
When you do that you find that there was a 87% chance to land at least one proc in a mine cluster... hence why anyone that ran mines ONLY ran chrons.

Lets all be honest Chron mines where pretty much 100% chance of proc before... so I am willing to believe that this change really is a chron nerf... of course tying it once again to the skill tree is a fantastic way to sell more respec tokens.
