    Titans are ~50b(Erebus/Avatar are like 55 or w/e?), which is basically meaningless for any group that's been around for a few years and is lead by someone with an IQ higher than the average goon line member.

    CFC have a mixed superfleet(I was really looking forward to killing all those t1 rigged t2 fit ratting hels), didn't want to commit when we were in range, and shockingly jumped in the second we got bored and cyno'd back once it was clear the keepstar was repping itself and CFC was unwilling to escalate and give us the capital brawl we wanted.

    We use Levis/Rags for throwaways because they have lower production costs, ~~shield titans~~, and rags being baller for this sort of stuff.

    In a nonshocker, the coalition that has lived on a game preserve for the last year and has zero experience with pvp or the capital meta is behind on how stuff works in 2018 (altho lets be real, CFC have been pretty consistent in not adapting to anything for their entire existence as an entity).

    Also, we cyno'd in, not warped, but minor stuff.

    Hopefully we get some real fights out of this when the timers come up again.

    It was a shield timer, and the keep was rereffed immediately, so basically status quo ante

    It didn't work, but there were 3 titans trying to boson several hundred carriers. If it had come off like they wanted, they'd have made a reasonable K : D trade and they'd have had fighter superiority for the night, which would have meant that their supercarriers could happily use fighterbombers and murderzone all the things.

    So now hull next week?

    Explain the BFG, please. An AoE DD? Three of them enough to kill carriers?

    I was commenting on ccps changes to the game which have made suicide titans viable.

    The Bosonic Field Generator is one of the new DDs introduced a couple of years back. It's an AoE damage cone (Conic AoE). It has a long spool-up time and mechanically is several attacks over several seconds rather than one big hit. If you have good skills and line up your titans just right, then yeah, 3 of them is on the order of 4M damage or so, which is enough to melt caps.



    In theory there's time to escape if you're fast. Though in practice, it seems like it invokes a lot of the same problems as the old 250km AoE DD.

    Life is absurd, but with a little effort we can make it completely ridiculous

    Well that's more to do with the Doomsday options than the cost of the titan; the titan cost scales pretty much proportionately with the cost of the carriers; it's just as much worth doing when titan hulls cost 55B as it is when they cost 110B. If your 3 Titans call kill 100 carriers then it's worthwhile (especially if one gets out)

    Ah, thanks. I found one description of the module that indicated it did only 40k in damage (10k of each type) and I couldn't figure out how that was useful. But if it does that 40k multiple times, that makes a lot more sense.

    With the opportunity to kill a few hundred carriers and have a significant effect on the balance of power on grid, it sounds like they undercommitted. Shit always has the chance of going wrong - instead of just three perhaps they could have done five or six instead, because even if they don't win the ISK war simply removing that many ships from space would be worth it. (Depending on their goal, of course.)

      Spoiler:


    Standard fleet fit carrier is something on the order of ~2m EHP, so three bosons should have been more than enough to roast those carriers. I don't know what happened, but I'm going to assume that the lack of killmails was equal parts NC dotto being bad and the server shitting itself in heavy TiDi.
