Titan bridging is one of the worst mechanics in EVE and dumbest ideas ever conceived.
Not only does this ridiculous mechanic stop fights from happening, it fortifies local defenses to a level where by default you either meet or beat them. The value of scouts checking gates for response fleets or camps evapourates. The mental mudpool of having some super bricked tanked cruiser or battlecruiser baiting for their friends in a massive T3D blob to drop. The gnosis for the titan bridge.
Cynos should be changed to prevent titan cannon and become ONLY for moving caps around, as originally intended. The ship which lights the cyno should suffer a penalty too, like 75% cap minimum to light and it costs 66% of total cap to fire. Parity between mechanics should be established. Stupid “gotcha” tricks like titan bridges damage the game and reduce the variety of engagements people can have. They moot the value of bubbles to slow down subcap fleets. They moot the value of cyno jammers both localised and sov type. They moot the value of scouts. They moot the value of neuts, ECM and damps. NOTHING can stop someone from titan bridging on you if you they want to do so and you didn’t have the foresight of Nostradamus to drop a cynojammer worth 100mil on every gate to stop a 1.4mil cyno from firing.
And with all of these strengths and the reputation afforded to titans of them being steel coffins its no wonder why bridging exists. It removes a lot of thinking on behalf of the bridging team. If there’s any change that the devs should implement for EVE it should be removing this defective idea from the genepool of EVE and forcing players to actually fly their ships again.
