This may be a dumb question but is there any way of finding out which player Corporations are,
A.) capable
B.) actually in the process of.
Manufacturing a Titan or a Mothership?
Now that RmR is about to be un-leashed upon us?

Doubt we will see motherships or titans for a while simply because of skill requirements (last time i checked to build a titan requires capital ship construction 5), carriers will be first me thinks since they cost at most 800mil to build.

Motherships and titans also need a "safe" POS station to build them and take a rather long time, oh and i dont think you can build them in empire making production of these things nigh on impossible unless the corp/alliance is serverly well organised and can keep a system protected for a month while the thing builds..

Still, CCP have already stated these will be a ***** to build, but congrats to the first corp/alliance to build one.

I think you'll see carriers come out within a week, or however long it takes to build one. The corps that build dreads already have most of the component BPOs or BPCs, and they only need the carrier BPO and the carrier components.

Motherships will be a little more difficult because of their high costs. I don't really expect to see any for a month. Titans, I think we'll be lucky if we see any within 3 months (outside of CCP intervention).

Secrecy is the only hope to those who would build a Titan, methinks. Have a lot of systems with sov, and then release propaganda to your alliance that the Titan is being built somewhere at the end of one region, when its in the middle of another. Anchor multiple Capital Shipyard Arrays across your space.

Well I can understand the need for secrecy in not letting your enemies know you are in production of one of these monsters. As that would give them a target.
Destroy the shipyard! Remove the capability to build!
But sooner or later some Corp. is going to produce one.
At that point imo
The power structure of EVE changes big time……who will be able to stop one of these thing when it decides to pay a visit.
This is my reason for asking in the first place, because I would assume that to join such a Corp could well be wise move at this time. If they are recruiting that is!
If you can’t beat then join them!

Maybe I should of asked which Corp's think they are capable of destroying a Titan or Mothership

have fun trying on your own.

Unless they changed the stats these things are tough and not need to hang around long.

I could not kill one in a vagabond before it and its 9 friends popped one BS, ran off at 3k m/s to the next one, popped it, and ran at 3k m/s to a third one that was behind me as i was still trying to get to them at the second bs. After that i got it down but it went to orbit the carrier they came from cause he was almost dead from the group that was against him. He was alone and there were several bs and one or two dreads killing him.

I believe Wild Rho is making a titan... out of paper, glue and sticky back plastic.

He's made quite a few models of Eve ships from origami I've been told, but tends to ruin things by running around his house with them in his hand making "vroom vroom" noises.

Also as with all new content... give them 1-2 months to sort the bugs out.

Edit: Dominx in anti fighter mode works wonders.
