There are a lot of opinions when it comes to rehauling the mechanics and culture of PVP, especially with regards to gate camps. Regardless of where you stand on the matter, there is no question that Alphas are at a severe disadvantage when it comes to moving relatively freely in hisec and lowsec in relation to gate camps due to their inability to use either covert or non-covert cloaks. Without making any other changes to PVP mechanics or the status quo, I believe we should introduce single-cycle cloaks that Alphas can use that will permit them to use the MWD Cloak trick to break through most hisec/lowsec gate camps, but otherwise not be able to utilize the advantages that cloaks offer (such as cloak camping or cloaking upon enemies dropping in). There could maybe be a 30 second cooldown before utilizing another single-cycle cloak, and/or other penalties for equipping (passive) or using (active) the single-cycle cloak. The cycle length would largely match the cycle lengths of MWDs.
(Existing cloaks do not have cycles, so the notion of a cloak having one and only one cycle is new but, speaking as a software developer myself, should not be hard to implement given how many existing modules have cycles.)
