So an unbuffed deploy (5 mines) immediately gets you 3.5x the effect of CPB1 all the way up to (with dispersal 3 of 16 mines) 11.2x the effect of CPB1!

11.5x CPB1 on a 15 second cool down and that's without worrying about the shield resist debuff.

No wonder sci abilities suck atm. If these mines are considered a bit OP then to bring sci abilities up to useful levels CPB3 should be doing for example 10x what CPB1 currently does.
