Fozziesov is boring

Jump fatigue - ok
Systems getting more powerful if you live there, and weaker and easier to capture if you don't live there - ok. Good changes, these make sense.

Entosis links, instead of giant guns - not ok. It's boring and it feels gimmiky.

In the long run - not fun. People try a space game to see at the end of it giant ships with giant guns, in giant battles. Well - we have those somewhere, but now the sov system depends on "entosis links" - because someone wanted to give a chance to people without big guns to ... To do what? I used entosis links, and they are totally boring to use, even more boring when I knew I just used them to troll, because that's what they allowed me to do.

Entosis links diminish EVE. It's like some hackers discovered a bug - to take down solar systems with some hacks, and thats' how things remained since, nobody fixed the bug. The inspiring giant ships of ancient times are less inspiring now.

Want a system? Bring 1000 attackers in frigates, or 10 in dreanoughts. Or bring 50 in frigates, if the system was not used and is easy to capture (that was a good change). Not just - 1 with an "entosis link" - to troll. This ability does not add anything good to the game. Let people shoot things with the guns on their ships, this is fun.

Entosis links diminish the marketability of a war ("look at all these big ships") but make the wars more fun for individual people. It encourages smaller gameplay, more focused on the individual player rather than "LOOK AT ALL MY CAPS". Seems like people enjoy it so I don't see why not to keep it ingame.

Edit: I should mention that goons are better suited for fozziesov 'cause your leadership really loves Sword Fleet.

Have you ever ground a region out before? It's not actually very much fun, even with dreads, supers and Titans. The entosis mechanic is a little dull granted, but fighting over structures with millions of HP was horrible. Perhaps in future the ADM can be linked to the HP of structures in a system.
