I dislike Superman. He's too strong/invulnerable/good. I like my heroes to have a little vulnerability to them, a weakness that is not "oh look, more of that rare green meteor rock!" I believe no one should have it too easy and Superman with his get-magic-powers-from-yellow-sun BS has it easiest of all. I'm a Batman fan; I like that the guy is just a human that has to train and dedicate his life to crime fighting in order to be on top. I'm talking round the clock training, OCD style.
OK, where the hell am I going here?
There is a sentiment in the Eve community that supercarriers since the upgrade are too powerful, and being a supercarrier owner it is a topic close to my heart (and wallet).
The evidence is scary. Multiple millions of effective hitpoints with resistances easily reaching 90% across the board, incredible DPS from the fighter bombers as well as hordes upon hordes of utility drones, immunity to common electronic warfare, and a jump range equivalent to a dreadnought. An alliance with a small fleet to call upon for hot-dropping has a chilling effect on any minor offensives a competing alliance might try to launch without it own fleet of supercarriers.
The startlingly high increase in the number of the ships as shown in the latest QEN leads one to wonder it their propagation is a good thing for the end game as massive alliances pump them out of the construction arrays. Normal battleship fleets are virtually useless against these behemoths and destroying them in the 15 minute logout timer (due to aggression) is next to impossible without capital support. To make matters most alarming, losing one of these supercarriers is no longer an significant economic blow to a large null sec alliance. Its fairly easily replaced and back in action.
Should something be done to curb these engines of destructions? What can be done? Do the same concerns apply to Titans?
I'm interested in hearing thoughts on the subject.
