Wow, the Anonymous haters are out in force today. Lovely, mindless haters.
The problem has always been proliferation, and to be fair, even now I think that what CCP is doing is too little, too late. Supercaps, if they had been kept to very, VERY low numbers could have stayed powerful weapons in the big coalition fleets. However, right now, supercapitals dominate the sov control, and you still need a massive supercap fleet if you want null-sec space. CCP made several mistakes in the past dealing with this, some incidental like making the drone regions drop minerals instead of ransoms, others were huge like botting and the massive increase in capital production when it was clearly getting out of control at least two, three years ago.
I know CCP doesn't want to do a notoriously risky re-write of what titans and supercarriers do... but their numbers are now too high to do anything other than a massive change to their very purpose. I thought about adding maintenance costs and seeing if the coding might support having multiple pilots required to fly each, but I don't think those will happen.
A change to non-combat capabilities for both the Titan and the Supercarrier is really the only thing left of the table to save null-sec from being overdominated.
