how does a titan go from "shields nominal"

to "all hands abandon ship"

in 2 minutes unless it's scripted?

Well, the leaked video of a Dust battlefield littered with wreckage and, I dunno, a burning Caldari titan in the background, wasn't a hint?

its obvious they needed the titan to die

dropping 20 moros on anything means it was a pre-determined outcome, either that or they have no idea how a capfight is gonna go gallente vs. caldari when one has superly overpowered caps and the other side has the weakest

Just because the loss of the titan was scripted does not mean the battle effect is scripted. Most RPGs have "scripted events," even those that are considered open world and player destined: Mass Effect, Fallout, etc...

Who cares if the titan was scripted to be doomed... that doesn't mean you can't change the outcome on who controls Caldari Prime, or who...

anyone got a kill mail for the titan, like we got for the Sansha ships during live events?

CCP dont need to change everything to suit your play style.

Improvise, adapt and overcome!

They're never going to make an event that's going to please everyone.

Seriously? CCP can't just squelch and/or ban people abusing a public chat channel during a public event?

edit: Waiting to hear about the Caldari going through with the "mutually assured destruction" thing and having glassed the Gallente district before the Shiigeru blew up.

Their news post has already explained the titan's final moments. Doesn't sound like it's going to do much of anything beyond land softly on an evacuated city district.

Would have made a great sight for the Titan to fire salvos of capital missiles and its doomsday on the planet just before it popped.

Oh **** yeah! I could just imagine a Dust player's stream showing that from their perspective. Though it will have to remain in imagination *grumble*

It was no where near "shields nominal" and then 2 minutes to death.

The fleet focused it first and got it to about 25% shields remaining. They then switched to the Chimeras that were remote repping it and wasted all of those (bar one) and 3 of the 4 Wyrvens. They then switched back to the Titan (which hadn't for some reason received any reps) and quickly disposed of what remaining shields it had. Armour and structure are more or less irrelevant on it compared to it's shields.

It wasn't scripted, and it was nothing like '2 minutes'.

Two of the Wyvern's were cleared off the field reasonably quickly, but after that it [the fight] slowed significantly, particularly when a large proportion of the fire was split between the two fleets and all the suspects (because everyone loves KM whoring).

The fact of the matter is, most people went for the Caldari fleet as soon as the 23 FN Moros’ landed, to get on supercap killmails - if more had gone for the Moros’ things might have been quite different with all the capital shield reps available, but they didn’t, so the Titan died.

In short, quit whining, Titan down, war goes on... (1 Titan is still bugger all in Empire navy terms)
