The loudest complaint I am hearing about the agesis system is the defenders unable to do anything while. 1 person uses their Agesis modal on the node.

Why not let these defenders "dig in do a fight". Ie. add deployables that would assist in the defence of the task.

Sentry drones that anchor, and auto fire at nuetrals or reds.
AOE damage ommiters (smart bombs) acting as a defence system against drones and misses. (Also light ECM burst or cap drainers)
Defence Barrer - modal that will bump ships that run into its area, or may even slow instead depending on the mass of the ship.
Repair sentries- auto targeting repair sentries that repair those near by,
One shot alpha missile batteries, Which need to be redeployed to be recharged.


These deployables have a short life span ie 15 mins, at which time they need to be picked up (recharched) and redeployed.
Have these only be able to Deployable near agesis points and not near traffic area like gates or stations.
These deployables can switch sides with the use of entosis links,


This should provide items to salvage post battles, a potential of catching people left behind trying to pick up these assists. Task for quick ships to reprograme to help switch the strength of the battle field., weaker secondary targets hit during battle.


These could also be items which mission or anomaly runners might find useful, though NPCS and reds would be treated like the same.


Someday I will have the time to play. For now it is mining afk in High sec. In Cheap ships

Can't the people not entosing already deploy the current deployables? Dropping a drag bubble, a cyno inhibitor, or a scan inhibitor sounds like something they could all do.
