you offcially made 90% of all titans into stargates ...



Correction you mean you welcome more Tidi fights and welcome subcap pilots having more leeway in their alliances now right?

Because all I see is a bunch of l33t pvp claiming good ole boys watching their system of I win reduced to normal.

I really don't like supers, in general, in the game. That said, this nerf was rather heavy handed. Not quite as over-the-top as the dread nerf that led to most dreads collecting dust, but it is bordering on that. Tracking really wasn't as big of a problem as a 50% nerf (either in the form of siege module or on the guns themselves). Scan res, on the other hand, did need to a look. But, seriously, 5? Sieged dreads have twice that, and that's saying something. Locking multiple targets, yeah, I can see why titans are getting a max of 3 targets.

Had hoped for a better thought out solution. The tears really amuse me, but with a nerf like this, they have a right to be upset.

Can I have a graph showing how many subs you've lost today CCP? You like graphs so much these days :)

Not to give away any secrets, but the true linchpin of alphafleet is not the maelstrom, or the 1400mm arty, so its pretty easy to neuter if you understand game mechanics.

Whatever they lost today will be replaced with either new players more able to get into corps or lower PLEX prices meaning more alts. Especially now that subcaps mean something.

So I expect a net plus from this.

Got this far and just have to ask, What is it you think they're doing to change sieged dreads?

They've removed the tracking penalty while in Siege, glad to see you're following along.

I'm guessing zero.

Seriously, if you want to quit, then quit. You won't be missed, and the loss will have zero impact on the game.
After making threats like that, you really only have one option.
To stay in the game would be to admit that you don't have the bollocks.

Lets break the game as it stands now so titans dont continue breaking the game in the future, I like the part where this completely fucks over people with a significant titan presence in their fleets. This is a rash decision making titans effectively useless until you have time to address rebalancing titans. So mothball your titans, let goons take over the north and wait because we promise we'll make them good again in the future?

I really hope you will consider holding off on this rash change until you have to properly address the titan role in fleets.

Well this seems slightly short sighted. It would have been interesting to see if titans are truly imbalanced or if people were just unwilling to commit fleets to counter them (dreads and supers). I guess we'll never really know though as this nerf seems like it could be a huge game changer, especially for an alliance like Raiden dot.


Lets see if it works as intended. I tentatively support these changes, and although would have preferred something with actual coding effort, can understand why a simple static data hack is all they have been prepared to invest in. And yes, I'm a titan pilot too.

Now to tackle the next legacy game design embarrassment - technetium.

There is several tools available to find what you need if you don't have every module name memorized. Use them.
