As I've suggested before, I'd be more than happy with EAS's simply directing affecting supercaps as their role bonus. Nevermind distributing the effect to drones - the ships themselves are the issue. Passing the effect on just creates more server-side processing and doesn't address the fact that titans are the main threat to sub-caps.

Tired of a titan blowing up your subcaps? Tracking disrupt it.
Don't want fifty plus supercarriers remote repping each other? ECM them.
Want to hold down hostile supercaps until more support arrives? Points and webs from frigate-sized ships are key.

EAS are fragile as hell and can be easily taken out by a competant supporting fleet, just like dictors. The key to balancing supercaps is to ensure that they're at risk when they're not accompanied by enough proper support, and can't just be thrown around in a helicopter-**** fashion.

HICs were added as an exception to the ewar-immune rule back in the days of the AoE DD. Now it's time for for a new exception.

I dont like this idea much, since it will hit a small capfleet very hard, but large supercap fleets wont feel these.

Think about it, fights that have a handful of SCs in them arent so much the problem, instead they have the potential to be good fun and epic - its the growing number of F*** off supers that are. In such a situation no destroyer or frigate could hold up to make a difference.

I still like this.
