Since Dominion went live Titans have one shot super-weapons that are capable of insta-popping a dread or carrier. They could be used in lowsec and no doubt more than one or two station hugging heroes met their end to this device. I thought it was a great change to doomsdays, I'm sure many will agree.

All was well with this mechanic until a supercap got popped in the same way with just a single DD. This brings a problem to light. Motherships need more hitpoints. This was agreed by CCP, implemented on SISI, tested extensively and almost universally loved by players. Then it got reversed by CCP because dreads in siege need target painters (or something like that!) As of today CCP removed the ability for "dd's" to be fired in lowsec.

This totally ignores the underlying issue of supercaps having too few hitpoints, it also reduces options in the game. It eliminates the ability of the titan pilot to kill station monkies. This is a valuable service they provided to the player base. But lets get to the self interest part of this whine - It kills the chances I had of baiting a titan. Yes, I know I could go to 0.0 and kill one there. I choose to operate in empire and lowsec and I think the chance to bait and kill one there is kinda cool... So bring back lowsec DD's, please!?

Changed it to lowsec titan super-weapons to avoid confusion. These were indeed usable in lowsec, the old traditional doomsday was ofc not.

So DDs aren't able to be used in lowsec anymore? Where is this in the patch notes?
