No they really is not. I have played several games now doing what you all are claiming is so out of balance and calling the Titans OP. BS, I lost my Rebel Titan trying to take out an enemy planet. it got wasted at level 3. So please do not try and pass off that the titans are OP or built way to soon. Because they are not.
Again, I will say this again as some others have, STOP TRYING TO NERF THE TITAN before we have seen the other Races Titans. Get off your high horses and just play the game as it is now and stop whining.
15 minutes vs. 30 minutes is at least 2 tech levels, carriers are more likely to be our en mass, as are Heavy Cruisers.
Also, before you start acting like I have no clue what I'm talking about, I lost 3 Ragnarovs in one game, every one due to my own personal failures (jumping into enemy Loyalist space and getting overwhelmed by all his militia buffs for example) My issues with the Ragnarov are few and far between, it's a glass cannon that takes time to develop.
This is not true of the Ankylon, the Ankylon comes out at 15 minutes and unless people have already been expecting this and have their own Titan or have done something incredibly strange and hilarious like build nothing but 5 capitals, 3 of which are Dunovs, or made large investments in an early starbase they're not going to be able to stop it. My gripe with it is that it's supposed to be defensive support, and yet it's still able to cut through fleets like they're nothing.
The Ragnarov requires support to keep it alive, the Ankylon should require support to deal damage. I'm fine with the concept of the TEC Titans, but they should bloody well need an escort fleet, that is my view and my opinion.
That aside, my biggest gripe with the current Titans is that they push the game in a direction where everyone rushes to get their Titan as soon as possible, and they can get it by 15 minutes, turning the game into short slugfests between a few, immensely powerful ships, this is not "giant epic space battles" like Sins has always been about, it feels closer to a MOBA.
And hey, newsflash, it's a beta, people are supposed to voice their concerns, you're the one who needs to get off your high, enlightened horse and realise that's all this thread is.
