Instead, if it is determined that they need an increase in effectiveness to go along with their higher-rank seating requirements, that's a balance review we can perform more easily.
IF you want to get people to use mines more, I'[m not clear why we simply don't buff their damage, reduce their threat a little and re-bind them to a DamageType: Torpeedo so people can use torp consoles for them as well, because NO ONE is going to use a Mine console for something of limited utility.
The idea should be to make it convenient fror players to incorporate mines into their current builds without selling the DPS farm in the process.
