Breakers are broken. They only really work for something like a suicide pipebomb where you’re running your SBs, your burst jammer, and you get ready to flash your TSB if you get boxed.
The scan res and purple lock are too much of a penalty together. The evidence: who the ■■■■ ever uses TSBs?
You see a concept theorycrafted, you see it used once or twice, and then shrug, you find something more effective. Outside of pipebombing, it’s only a sliver above worthless.
Eliminate either the ability to break purple locks, or the scan res penalty.
Increase cap usage dramatically, only permitted on battleships.
It would break up blob tactics. Arty fleets would see half their fleet lose lock, and start failing volleys (which is critically expensive).
