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.
Ever wonder why you lose every fight under a cynojammer?



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!


How is CCP Greyscale part of the CFC?
U should take a look at your own alliance history and issues.
Really if you had the eagerness to develop and recruit subcap pilots instead of supers
Rebuttal here would be the least of your flaws.

The change can't be as "worst" than your grammar.

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.


Attempts to kill titans are made everyday. They usually conclude in a fashion similar to this, or this.

I find it astonishing that you none of you realise that behaviour like this is what got your toys nerfed.

Your alliance has two members on CSM6 who have been party to every single conversation on this subject .. you should really bring this allegation up with them.



"What could we do about it if he is?"

Thats the response I get.


But its ok, we've learned well from Mittani when it comes using the media to vent our concerns, why ask CCP when i can ask other groups that will put it publicly in print and smear it all over CCP's face, you know, like you guys do when you don't get your way?

Soundwave and Screegs both were part of goonswarm, giving them as much power as they've attained was bound to lead to one thing and one thing only since they still associate with Goons, and today, we can see it in print, in the most ham handed useless gesture ever recorded.

15 seconds to lock your own hull class, and sub caps that can still be hit by the Titan guns.


Sounds about how a Goon would get the change done.

Why, exactly, do titans rarely get killed outside of ganks?

Sounds like a good idea. Let me dedicate my 120m SP character to a spacecoffin that opens bridges and can shoot non-existent capital fleets.

Oh well, at least this means there's one less account for me to sub.

Your spies are a little out of date mate. We don't use those anymore.

You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.
