CCP has a history of nerfing stuff that is hillariously gamebreaking.

Best change ever!

I was pretty excited when they removed AOE DD, going 20 jumps in a 250+ BS fleet only to instantly die because 3 titans logged in at the target system was SUPER DUPER FUN AND BALANCED.

Unfortunately, nothing changed all that much. Still doesn't matter what ships you bring or how many people, the only real difference is it's 40 titans instead of 3 and it takes a bit longer for everyone to die.

When they get around to the full revamp I'm sure they'll reduce the cost a bit so you can stop crying that the cost justifies being unbalanced.

No, it's better by a margin. A supercarrier can't field 150 fighters simply because it costs 15 times as much as a carrier.


I for one would love for my megathron to do 10k DPS and one volley anything just like 15 thoraxes can.

EVE online is the fishermans friend of MMO's. If it's too hard you are too weak.

Incredible that CCP just play into Goon hands!

Lets just call the game "Goons Online" and be done with it. I don't know how goons and others can cry nerf when it's the only way some alliances can counter the huge numbers that can be thrown into one system at any time. They gimp the titan tank by fitting mods to kill subcaps, so therefore take a huge risk to field them in the first place.

TIDI was introduced to deal with large numbers of people therefore making alpha more prevalent, this helped certain alpha fleets and reduced the effectiveness of others....

Just because some alliances have the balls to drop Titans and Supers onto other fleets, why can't the other alliances escalate like the game is intended?

Unbelievable response by CCP and just another move that proves they don't understand how eve works anymore.



Because some alliances...
Yours mainly, end up doing this with all the titans and supers on one side.

Having 20 times the EHP is clearly worst.

Better yet, I will just trade you the tinfoil for your worthless Titan(s).

Fine CCP, also enjoy bending armor and Shild and triple the damage of DD, what use would a titan now? We are adding four years to invest anything, congratulations!

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.


In truth I'm not really sure what CCP is trying to accomplish here.

Titans being purely anti-cap weapons seems somewhat useless outside of ganks, given the incredible rarity of capital fights in EVE right now. Especially when the side fielding caps and titans has traditionally been facing a blob of subcaps and not caps. At its core it not only shows CCP's ignorance of the metagame right now, but also of the fact that no serious attempts have been made to actively kill titans outside of ganks. Saying titans are imbalanced and need a nerf simply does not make sense, given the context in which the argument is being made.

Very poor response that lacks alacrity, however something one would expect from you.

FIghting under a cyno jammer puts the defensive alliance in a good position to field huge numbers + caps/supers. Considering that Goons still have one of the largest super fleet in EVE yet cry nerf is hilarious.

You have to admit, lots of the changes recently have been of benefit to goons. I'm waiting for the 1400 howitzer nerf and then we will seriously see some crying!

If I recall right, we relieved you of the burden of Nyx ownership. You replaced it, and lost a Nyx and Ragnarok shortly thereafter. HEH
