I'm rather new with maybe 3 weeks into Incursions after an 8 year break from Eve, but I'd like to share my experiences here.
I noticed the amount of cap broadcasts often not decreasing with the addition of more Basi pilots to a fleet. While I'm constantly locking Vindicators, Hyperions and occasionally Nightmares and Tempests (depending on Site the composition varies) and give them 3 cycles with a single cap projector, there are usually only a few broadcasts left every now and then, even while contesting. In the end it all depends on the number of Vindicators; if you can lock up 7-9 of them (keeping the required locks ready for current shield broadcasts) and remember who else you are not spraying cap to, then you can easily give cap to everyone not locked on the next lock-cycle, so no broadcast is ever seen.
Yesterday I was the sole Basi in fleet for a pretty long time and we had just 2 cap broadcasts during a contest. In the Logistics channel some were confused about the DPS maybe not overheating or something. But this of course was not possible because of personal skill, but only because the amount of Vindicators being 'just' 9, making memorizing who already got proactive Cap in the TPPHs easier. It also helped a lot by not cluttering up the broadcast history and making it confusingly cramped.
An hour later we had 3-4 Basis and the chat was cramped with many people repeatedly broadcasting for cap - even with several people repeatedly complaining on voicecomms about their cap being dry. Though I noticed some Basi pilots only serving the broadcasts, some (at least one of them) of them were not transfering cap at all. Shield broadcasts were another problem during split-aggro, since many people don't broadcast 'in position' and it ended up with 6 of my locks being occupied by shield broadcasts, while the aggro partially switched on multiple new persons. Not knowing whom to unlock, makes the unlocking rather speculative, so I had to 'guess' which target was not receiving damage any more in order to make room for new shield locks... the cap broadcasts of the 14-16 Vindicators, 5 Nightmares, 4 Hyperions and 1 Tempest had to be completely ignored in favor of fleet safety. At some point, the amount of cap projectors just isn't enough to keep the broadcast history 'clean'.
And even if people broadcast 'in position' when having received enough cap, can make the broadcast history comparison with the locks quiet complicated. I usually don't have problems doing the Basi job, but sometimes at peaks (and if the other Basis are not distributing cap pro-actively), it can be difficult to browse through the history to determine what to unlock. Unlocking is easier for people in the watchlist, since you can see who's under attack and relock rather fast, but I usually have all Logis in it, the DDDs, the FC, the meatshield, and it quickly adds up to being nearly maxed out.
My recommendation would be to have a single cap-dedicated Basi in each fleet (in addition to the usualy Scimi-Loki-Basi-Mix), capable to equip and run 6 cap transfer arrays and lock 10-13 targets. That way the bulk of the Vindicators could be easily served with a massice amount of proactively distributed cap, and it would make the job of the other Basi pilots to only battlecap the 'problem children' much easier and less stressfull. As I see it, flying Basi is rather stressing for a lot of people, and some surely stop proactive capping every once in a while because they get half a burnout - it's probably not sursprising most people prefer flying Scimmitars or Lokis, since properly flying Basi comes with such a workload, you don't even have time to actively watch out for people out of position or possible DCs. WTM is a shield-based fleet with a probably high amount of Caldari pilots... why our fleets keep having a Basilisk shortage is a thing to think about.
Having a single dedicated Cap-Basi in fleet would make life easier for all the other Basi and Logi pilots as well, freing up broadcast history, making the job much less stressfull for the one proactively capping and freeing up resources and locks(!) for emergencies. And cap projectors having much smaller powergrid and CPU needs than shield transfer arrays would allow anyone to fly them even without a Powergrid rig.
I made two screenshots where I realized it would be possible to keep the whole fleet from constantly broadcasting for cap. The only problem an hour later on was the massive amount of Vindicators and the lack of cap projectors. Also switching targets for proactive battlecapping takes time off of each modules activity time, which could be futher reduced by assigning a single projector to 6 targets each longer. For me proactive battlecapping makes up 75-80% of my workload... I can understand, if many Basi pilots don't proactively distribute cap, since it is a large amount of extra work.
I can also imagine the workload on FCs and searching for new Basi pilots being lower, since a less stressed Basi/Logi pilot would probably be willing to stay in fleet longer, requiring less frequent substitution.
for the time being though, I would recommend to allow such a Basi in fleet only (!) if the FC explicitly requests for one (and of course the Cap-Basi having to leave fleet eventually or re-equip to standard fitting if a new FC doesn't want it).
So far, it is just an idea/recommendation. I wanted to see what other Logi pilots and FCs think about it as a possibly viable option to reduce the massive overhead and stress for proactive battlecapping.
kindly regards, Skeltek
