This September we are planning two large changes for Cynosural Fields:

– Cynosural Field Generator I can only be fit by Force Recon Ships and Black Ops Battleships (note: these classes can still fit covert cynos)
– Jump Freighters can jump to Covert Cynosural Fields

During this era of chaos we are eager to introduce new challenges for veteran pilots while working towards a deeper and more balanced capital meta. Historically, cynos have been extremely flexible. They can be used on flocks of alts at nearly no risk or used by the largest and strongest ships in the game. With few options for cyno disruption, capital response time and power has grown to the point that it’s oppressing activity. This change will make it more complex and demanding to get capitals to the field quickly and give more strategic options for those wishing to disrupt capital response.

While most of the impact from this change is on combat, we are sensitive to the effect on Jump Freighters and logistics overall. Jump Freighters will be allowed to use Covert Cynos which can be activated by cheaper hulls like Covert Ops Frigates. This may need further attention and we will be watching this area very closely.

      Except nothing will really change.
      The “big three” will just come up with countermeasures pretty quickly. Here, one example: They could have a purifier or two on standby in each system that’s within umbrella range. Cap got caught? While umbrella gets ready to jump, purifier lighs cloaky cyno and a recon gets blops’d over. It then warps on grid and lights a cyno, by which time the umbrella fleet is also ready to go.

      There. Super umbrella restored, just a few extra steps added to it’s usage

    Nothing changes. Alliances that have enough leverage to keep umbrellas are also able to keep strategically positioned cynos around their space.

      Plus they can just organize a response system so if a cap gets caught, a cyno can be brought on grid fast enough for it to be lighted by the time the guys in FAX and supers are ready to go.
