I am addressing here recent ship balance changes. Part of them were caused by the fact, that null sec semi-afk PvE in some ships let produce large amount of ISK, cripping EVE economy.
So PvP capabilities of carrirers, VNI and Gila hulls were nerfed.
All those have one common feature: null sec NPC are too dump to effectively destroy fighters or drones.
What do you think about upgrading null sec NPC anti-fighter / drones abilities instead of nerfing player ships? I know there was already upgrade like that in the past. And it caused many salt in carrier pilots, yes, but apparently it was not strong enough cause bot carrier or VNI ratting is still a thing.
I do not believe, that supposed nerfs will really help getting economy back to human players. But the change of null sec NPC behavior against drones to much closer to Abyss NPC behavior(drones are webbed and primaried by dedicated NPC teams) can help , IMHO.
