also needs more dd aiming skill

seriously how do you miss an ENTIRE FLEET with a 200km radius weapon?

Wouldn't it be better tanked to have resist/HP tank? Not sure, never seen many Titans before - but it just seems to me like it would do a lot better off with a ton of HP with really good resists versus a tank with semi-good resists with a crap a limited hp/s. Or is this only really feasible on a Avatar, not a Rag?

1 Nanofiber on a ship does not make it a nano-ship.

Only one nanofiber actually fitted, though he had others with him. Pretty poor fit with the T2 smarties, T2 recharger and not even any rigs though.

Resist/hp tanks work when you've got other caps in a spider tank. Often titans are sent by themselves to hit a fleet and warp off then cloak. The slings are hopefully setup so that the titan doesn't have to align but only get to speed after popping the dd.

Look at how much damage it took. Maybe 2x that of a dread. If a titan is caught it can't exactly tank an entire cap fleet. The armor reps are mostly to buy time for a friendly cap carrier fleet to arrive.

It needed office smartbombs, and at least faction cap rechargers. Also no mention of rigs.

Also notice the nanofibers & istabs in the cargo? look like an alternative fit to me. Probably someone tried it nano.

I wondered if this titan would have survived if it had been nano'd. Superior align time and all that.

unlikely, even if he didn't miss with the dd. there were multiple heavy dictors on grid and I assume at least one was dd-tanked.

Well, the theory would be that he would dd and attempt to warp off before heavy dictors could slow boat to the spot. Racing suicidal ceptors etc that would be happy to leave a wreck for someone else to warp to.

Most of the time a titan gets tackled it doesn't work out so well for the titan. So its a race to get onto grid, dd, then warp off.

Then theres lag.



Plus look at the damage. The dreads did a world of hurt. Usually dreads can only hit a target that isn't moving. Then its the ability to bump that makes a difference.

If he had been able to keep moving then it would be mostly carriers & battleships doing the dps. Smart bombs would have helped with fighters.

he cynoed into that spot 300km off the TCF fleet and fired the dd, then they all just warped to the cyno and killed him.

Why would he fit a nanofiber instead of an inertial stabilizer? That makes no sense.

Wait. What? He. Cyno'd. On. Grid. With. A. Hostile. Fleet?

Outside of dd range? And at easy warp to distance?


A) He needed the insurance
B) The cyno pilot didn't like him much
C) He time traveled from 6 months ago(?) and forgot to read patch notes detailing the addition of new ship types
