Babies are bad, BAD.


That is why more than 1 guy should be balancing the ships, not that Tallest isn't awesome :D


We actually have three people dedicated to it now, the other two are just working on other areas (titan tracking, anyone?).



Let the games begin

God, I hope you're kidding about this titan nerf business. It's a 100b+ isk ship. What do you think it SHOULD do? Have you ever tried to accumulate that kind of isk in game? From start to finish, everything about a titan is epic -- the cost, production time, risk involved, etc. I think it's been nerfed enough -- too much even. Shouldn't the outcome of all that work be something equally epic?

ofc not. NERF TITANS NOW i say..

100b ship, months and months pilling up isk, huge work hauling mins / building / cooking the damn ship, protecting the tower, praying no one notices the CSAA (when in truth half galaxy knows exactly where it is) .. nerf it now i say!
make them useless (well, they are ALREADY useless..)

let's aLL fly drakes and quit the game

Damnit Punkturis, you have to take on his mantle of the saviour of the Gallente people, then. Get into that source code, change a few values and be hailed as a hero.


I'm pretty sure you guys don't want me to do balancing...


Incursions have been dealing out all sorts of effects into space-time... might explain random changes seen in hulls undocking in the future. Fortunately the effects only last 48 hours.

This system seems exploitable. Make baby, have baby, get 9 months off, sell baby on black market, make new baby, have new baby, get 9 more months off, sell new baby on black market...

A clever Icelander would never have to work again and make a fortune selling babies.

And here I was wondering where CCP got inspiration for some of the ****** up mechanics in Eve (like the old insurance fraud).

Just in case this isn't a troll, there's nothing particularly epic about Titans these days apart from how strong they are in groups.

Dozens of Titans get made perfectly safely every month, and there are more locked away on inactive accounts than have ever died in combat. It's a ship class without a role, and they've consistently been able to kill everything on grid in sufficient numbers.

Half of Eve players actually fly Titans, CCP will really feel it when they all quit.

I'm sure everyone at CCP is quaking in their boots at the thought of literally TENS of pilots unsubscribing, the effect that making the game better for everyone else will have on their bottom line.
