well there are significant changes being worked on behind the scenes at the moment. i’m not sure how i feel about having a second titan, as you say, not a T2 but i imagine then just a varient of what already exisits.
personally when it comes to titans, I think there should be some kind of portal effect given to fleet members, here let me explain in more detail.
the real world equivilent of a titan would be an aircraft carrier.
the whole point of an aircraft carrier is to specifically apply force multipliers beyond the horizon.
this is in fact replicated in EVE Online by the fact a titan can bridge fleets.
however in reality, an aircraft carrier has to have its fighters return to it, due to the nature of how titan bridging works in the game this is not the case, however, i feel it would be more appropriate especially for operations if the pilots who jump through a titan bridge, we’re subject to some kind of “tempoary portal effect” where the fleet who were bridged are then additionally bought back to the titan, this would make for a much more realistic sense of how a titan and an aircraft carrier operate in my mind.
which in short would mean, the jump portal is much more how we think of warp technology in actual science at the moment, space has been bent so traveling there is fast and effective, however this is effect is only held by the titan pilot, who can cycle down the effect and thus recall the fleet.
carriers used to work in a similar way with fighters being able to warp across whole solar systems engage a target and come back, but this was removed a long time ago, the scale upward from that is bridging players to other systems, I think honestly think there is probably a way of achieving this and i think would be more fitting if a titan for example was only capable of bridging a fleet for so long, it would mean large scale fleet fights COULD then have some kind of fixed or set timer dependant on the titan pilot. I would argue this would also help with server stress loads, pilots who need to re-fit or re-ship would also then have the chance to do so before being bridged again.
I think this would be pretty cool for the titans already existing in game
