Along the same lines as non-capital ships ie Navy Raven,Dominix, Megathron etc Will we one day see True Sansha Avatars? Serpentis Nyx, Navy Thanatos et al?

I think it would be a good idea.

There are Faction issue titans that are 3x the size of our civilian titans. though I'm not sure if they exist in lore only.

Putting capital ships in the game without any limitations on their use was the worst idea of all time in EVE.

Adding faction capitals to the mix would just exacerbate the worst problem in the game.

I like the idea of faction Capital Ships. Would be even better to have "faction-only" capitals, like the faction frigates we have (Dramiel etc.).

It's great having no limitations to capital ships tbh. Personally I like cynoing in a fleet of dreads on a station camp in TMP. The doomsday on Jita 4-4 used to be excellent too. Now we can only D/D one freighter at a time :(

Yep, I take my archon to dodixie all the time to pick up supplies for my low sec pirating ways. Greatest part is the faction police can't kill me even though I'm an outlaw with it, I just tank them forever.Rolling Eyes

Edit: Almost forgot, I support the addition of faction capitals. Perhaps not super caps, but certainly normal capitals. I'd also like to see some additional capital mods, namely capital plates, shield extenders, neuts, smartbombs, hull reps (both self and remote) and t2 versions of it all. I probably forgot a few missing items too.

Do you have a source for that, or are you just making stuff up?

Also, "civilian titans" lol. Is it a titan for newbies that requires no skills? Maybe a rookie titan? Since when are capsuleers "civilians"?

Aren't all of the people not involved in faction war civilians? I don't recall signing up for military service when I strapped myself into a pod.

Capsuleers aren't civilians because we're extra national entities unto ourselves. Nor are we members of any regular military. We kind of transcend the whole civilian vs military distinction, since we're not citizens of any empire at all.

Besides, no matter how you define "civilian", we certainly don't use civilian gear except for the rank newbies on their rookies ships who don't have the money or skills for anything better. We use military-grade weapons, EWAR, armor, and ships.

Calling titans "civilian" is in and of itself especially silly. They're designed for fleet support and are doomsday device platforms. Calling something that can obliterate capital ships and probably whole cities from orbit "civilian" seems kind of ridiculous.

I like the idea of faction capitals but not supercaps, they are powerful enough as it is.Navy carriers or dreads i'm not so sure about they don't bring anything new to the class. Pirate capitals, now that i'd love to see with special abilities and awesome looks. May take a while to train for both race requirements but there are enough people who probably would train another just to get one if they were good enough.

Tried to find the origin of the civilian titan info I parroted second-handly. Here is a thread that has people deeply discussing lore behind titans: Linkage. In that they dscuss there being a difference between the faction titans and the ones we build.


The most probable origin of this lore is from the chronicles or the books, of which I am not a regular reader.

Faction capitals would make for an interesting ISK sink.

Not sure that Eve needs more ships though.

I would vote for more unique content. Alone the same lines as the Golden Magnate. It would be nice to see a few unique capitals.

Or maybe there should be new fighters equipped with ewar, navy caldari carriers get jamming fighters, minmatar fleet get stasis fighters , etc.
all carriers will be able to use the new fighters, but only the navy/fleet get bonuses to them depending on their racial. Pirate Carriers do not get bonuses to the new fighters, but should have specialized bonuses like VanNostrum suggested.

i say yes, but if you look at t1 frig and dramiel,, its about 160x price difference
so make the faction titans cost 11,2 trillion isk,
the faction carriers 112billion, and we dont even got a problem with em :P

There have been several suggestions in the past about faction carriers and dreads, but frankly, I don't see it happening.
