Ascendant Frontier has completed construction of a titan. My corp, Ars Caelestis, is one of the member corps, but we had no idea this was happening - we’ve only got one capital ship, and it’s just a piddly carrier. Nevermind that we can’t use the clone vats, jump portal generator or doomsday weapon…it’s pretty awesome. Ridiculous sum of in-game lucre spent on this thing.
Honestly, right this second, not much of anything. ASCN just has a history of EVE-O firsts to keep up. The ship would, when fully operational, allow you to move an entire fleet across several systems without the use of jump gates. It would let you dock ships and install clones, allowing you to clone-jump to the ship and undock, fully combat-ready, at a moment’s notice. The superweapon can be remotely activated on any cyno field (jump point, basically) in the same system, with superweapony results - big area of effect damage, lots of dead enemies. Basically, it’s a mobile logistics point slash giant siege weapon.
No, EVE caps out the number of guns on any particular ship at 8, so you don’t see much of that kind of thing. I think it’s a shame; I’d love it if my battleship could mount anti-fighter weapons and not completely compromise its offensive firepower.
Nah, it would require too much of a change in the balance of the game to get anyone to fly frigates again if they could do that. Although maybe if they nerfed nosferatus and energy neutralizers it might sorta balance out in the end…
At the moment I’m saving up to get myself a big ass miner. I’ve been working my way towards building shit - I’ve got a pretty full on “Real World” life so being able to set up builds and sales while I’m at work is pretty good.
