I'd like to see something 10 times the build cost of a Titan.

Make it awesome. Like it can lay outposts as eggs, destroy moons with a big lazor and stuff.

Main thing is proliferation demands a new "biggest" ship to reduce the super blobs.

Like a super titan. its so big it cant even leave the system not even with a cyno. kinda like a moving station.

a moving station? lol, what would be the point...other than really making people laugh when they blow it up?

It's doubtful that ccp would allow a more powerful weapon into the game so standard doomsday device..? Couldn't cloak.. Couldn't move fast, maybe it would have a shield.. then what? Strontium fuel and reinforcement like a pos's? or would they be conquerable like outposts?

a lot of questions need to be answered before I could accept this idea.

Then what happens in 3 years when every null sec corp has at least 10 of them

This doesn't improve the game and is unnecessary. We really don't need any more capital ships, especially ones related to combat.

Well, if you spend enough time reading these forums, you'll notice supercapitals are just a pain in the a$$ to fly.

Also, since CCP has this golden rule of never breaking reality, whatever that means, the skills necessary to fly such a ship would use a quadratic formula, meaning you would have grandchildren by the time your training finishes.

more interestingly would be better having a titan classed ship that you'd need multiple pilots to fly, gun, operate jump/warp drives etc.
Would be interesting making a Titan a true corporate/Alliance based ship

- Jovian left-overs (3-5 in existance).
- Armed station that can inflict serious pain.
- Capable of using cyno to change system once per day.
- Conquerable.

Or one could just go with the Hive Ship (search for it) idea which is much better in all respects

It's not a moon! It's a space station! Cool

This is the same as this topic that has been debated to death. Moving Stations

Your just asking in a different way. And I don't think and even larger ship would make a lick of difference to blobs. Unless it could warp onto a grid unleash it's weapons and literally kill everything there. Then it would just be the new "I win button" as well as unbalanced and people would cry just like the old DD's. The amount of isk that the larger alliances/coalitions have would allow them to just build these ships en-mass as well. We're talking about very, very fat wallets here.

I'm not trying to be harsh as I would like to see, at the very least Titans with the ability to become mobile stations, but if it's going to happen I don't think it will be in the near future.

I support this product and or service.

And +1 to idea, but I'd like to see more details please, aside from making it a supreme-super capital anti moon, anti outpost, station building industrial mofo of a ship that will see blobs of titans massed just to gank within 24 hours.

Maybe something like a POS that has no weapons, but a hell-of-a-lot of cargo space, a large ship maintance facility, and a lot of shields. Can only move around by cyno and must anchor itself to activate modules and access corp cargo area. Can't dock. No pilot required when anchored?

Sounds interesting for a quick and easy to deploy forward staging area.

How about a titan, but twice as big, that fits a full rack of doomsdays and can fire them all independently?

i like the jumpable staging station. somewhere you can dock and you can only move once a day. has jump range less than a black ops. and is conquerable. so large blobing alliances can easily move their members around. just think what this would save pl in jump fuel and logistics time :P

Have a look at the Hive ship. similar to your idea, A station that can use a wormhole (jumps during downtime to resolve the database issues). There was even a number of Dev posts discussing the idea.
