This worries me because the 15 minute re-secure mechanic was important, in regards to tactics and gameplay captivity, of Planetside and it saddens me that it might be stripped away in favor of an instant base cap. Thoughts?

The mechanic was sped up for the Demo. Capturing will be proximity based and affected by how many players are within that proximity. For example, if it's 15 feet, then a hack will be initiated if an enemy is within 15 feet of the control console. Each additional enemy within that proximity will decrease the time it takes to complete the hack. I would imagine that this would also be counter balanced by the number of friendlies in that proximity as well.
