Can I just offer my opinion as a markedly un-elite shmuck that I never ever want to fly a supercapital?
Like seriously fuck not being able to dock up, move around freely and having to take the game moderately seriously. I'm also the kind of scrub who doesn't use alts.
He's totally metro. Just accept it and move on.
man wtf did some1 srsly imply that darius johnson was behind all this?

If you guys are green and into the environment and all I'd like to assure you that Theta Squad supercapitals are built with locally acquired minerals through ratloot and hauler spawns, no need to burn all those messy isotopes moving minerals from empire or buying them from opressive regimes. Anyone who, you know, holds space and isn't overwhelmingly composed of scripts and injectors is capable of doing this.
I don't know but I just realized that weaselor got trips on a shitpost
I just queued up cap ship V.
Because fuck you, that's why.
You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to MpozoY again.
I'm not going to take anything away from the CFC, they do well in their style of play and it is definitely effective, but I wont take this as far as to say that now tracking Titans are nerfed, no one stands a chance. I actually think that this may be a good direction for the game to take as it has the potential to bring more pilots into sov 0.0...
Sure when it comes to sov and moon warfare you will see huge ass groups filling up to the hundreds, but EvEntually, as time goes on, the great big coalitions will break apart, fight amongst each other, and reform. They always do. Look at the past year or so and see this in abundance. No one is immune to this.
Will we see 20 vs 20 man fleets in the future over sov? Hell no, and to expect this is a joke, but it wont be 2000 vs 2000.
No! with titans nerfed nobody stands a chance against the blob! the CFC will be unstoppable just like the NC was!

I'm still waiting for the DRF to take over all of 0.0 and turn it into a botting heaven.
As you can tell by the still humming CFC titan construction yards, this patch has literally 0 effect on Titans, with the singular exception being that for some reason CCP has decided that making the titan pilots wait an extra 30 seconds to begin applying damage to any ship in the game was somehow a balance (because eliminating Titans ability to hit frigs and destroyers only will not bring balance to fleet combat where titans are concerned, unless the CFC plans to switch to sig tanking BS).
Its a good play though, if Mittani had acutally finished off RAIDEN like he should, it would show CCP that all the titans in the world can't save you when the hordes come, and by throwing drakes at titans for 3 weeks left right and center he seems to have brought the issue into sharp focus, while at the same time still securing everything of worth in the area.
Not too shabby.
Drakes should be able to kill titans easier!!
So why don't we just bring back AOE DD?

Mother of God, it all makes sense. Thank you Grath for showing us the true puppet masters behind CCP. Their days in the shadows end here; begun the tinfoil hat wars have.

Its like a twisted circle or something only a few things left to complete the circle.
I'm not going to doom and gloom too much, but everyone complaining about the ease of ISK and the need to stem the flow – you are missing the biggest part of that problem.
That ISK flows easiest into the hands that already have ISK. Riches beget riches, and without the "opportunity" for newer players to acquire wealth, those who already have tens/hundreds of billions (or trillions) of ISK in their wallets have literally years of no income generation to bring that gap down. I'm sure Turbofeld/Diagoras could get the numbers - but I'm guessing much like in RL removing the source of the ISK generation doesn't solve the problem, since so much ISK is already in the hands of so few. You can't fix this easily, because "fixing" it ruins it for younger, poorer players first. Any changes that CCP makes to actually solve the problems of ISK and logistics will take years to trickle down and resolve themselves, because of the amount of ISK already in the game.
As for Titans, I'd bet that the "titan explosion" is paired fairly closely with the re-distribution of Technetium out of the NC - and the fact that once that ISK faucet (god I hope I'm using it right) was opened to someone who plays the game, those beneficiaries started using it for their personal silver-plated Aston-Martins (super carriers) and their fleet of Tesla Roadsters (titans). Now before you get all RMT on me, I'm saying that they are using the ISK from Technetium in-game to buy Titans and Supers, and that's why there was a boom in production - there was a boom in demand when that ISK started staying in the game.
goons are still making titans because they know that defending their sov is gong to take capital level assets
shame about raiden getting raped isnt it
the expansion of titans is a ratchet-like interaction between supply and demand. it's not like one reason being true excludes another.
personally i don't see what's wrong with this. more titans means titans become less important individually, and when goons finally get enough titans to throw them around, funded by bot money, we'll see more interesting fleet fights with titan fleets from both sides. because, let's face it. titan battles are balls to the wall exciting. given that eve is such a boring game when it comes to actual gameplay, isn't it a good thing to have more battles involving dead supers?
i'm all for bots decreasing the labor cost of money in eve, raising living standards for players and making it cheaper in effect to be involved and have better stuff. just don't OVERDO it like a horus. individual, small business botters are okay and upstanding eve citizens.
nerf titans nerf tech ban bots
2013 is coming
There is really no reason for a MMO economy to function on the same principles as a RL one.
I guess I just never got into anomalies until i had a titan so maybe i don't know how much you can make off of them, or maybe CCP is full of shit, I'll believe just about anything at this point, but idk a lot of ratters so I have no metric to test CCP's retardation against.
The Eve train for me ends when Titan hits beta hopefully will be able to RMT my shit and cash out with a couple grand.
automation once again trumps manual labor. woot woot
pl's apparent response to the titan nerf: become an elite pve alliance
i did not see that one coming
Weaselior is a top-ranking Goon. Goons hate PL, because PL's core consists of faggoty former goons that nobody wants to play with. PL's periphery is just faggots that nobody wants to play with.
*Except Grath. Grath isn't a faggot so much as a perpetually angry old man.
To be fair a lot of our old goons quit, but we're literally still and always were made up of failed alliance parts. Kind of ironic in a way, made up of used old parts that couldn't hack it, but somehow in a randomly different configuration able to own own own.
Respect to the Levi pilots, they are the only Titan pilots laughing at this nerf across the map.
My closest experience to this is the Dramiel nerf, balance something OP and the ones that used them whine(I know I did about Dramiels but that's because I can't fly ceptors).
