Hello,

1. Titans cost a fortune, and for their price should have considerably more HP than they currently do.
2. Upon death, titans should create a massive explosion that damages all ships around it and it should be heard from up to three systems away.

Let me know your thoughts.

1. Cost and hp are not dependent. Look at interceptors.

2. Wtf. Why?

Titans are in need a serious dose of, "LESS UGLY", other than that they are as powerful as they need to be.

Searing destruction of your viewpoint is incoming and no you won't win the discussion or even walk away with anything resembling a win, so bail out early or suffer repeated embarrassments. You have been warned.

...Do you even fly a titan?

They have these things called support fleets. With boosts, and logistics. Their EHP is easily up into 75 million with a good fit and a proper support fleet.


If you do own a titan and you fly it without a support fleet (like one of those titan ratting retards) you deserve to have it wrecked.

I'm down for Titans causing a pretty hefty AOE blast when they go up, seems totally natural to me they should.

  1. Titans are literally what CCP mean when they say that Cost is not a Balance Parameter. Their HP is fine. Eve is a game of linear increases in power for exponential increases in cost. As it is it's currently cheaper and easier to buy a Titan than any time in Eve's history, and they're arguably in a better position than ever before in terms of overall utility and power thanks to the various DD options and Titan Ratting.

  2. No. AoE explosions on the death of *any* ship are a poor idea and nearly impossible to balance. One that creates noise *several systems over* is just annoying and pointless, not to mention stretching the limits of even Eve's creative definition of physics.

2. sure there should be an aoe like 10% of original HP so finally i got my "fire ship" which will wipe out full fleets ...first with my dd and after that with my explosion .... ok it will be more expensive than i thought it should be...but hey... i´m good at begging anyway!
