Curious to see just how much RMT in EvE Online goes on, I think people would be very surprised at the anwser, interesting read though.

Heh.

Supercap proliferation up by 224.00% .
...472 titans and 449 black ops being piloted.

At the same time high-sec population is 79.6% of the total and null sec population is 11.2%

Don't forget, though, they only take those ship measurements by who is sitting in ship at the time of measurement. And since a Titan pilot can't really live the Titan, and a Black Ops pilot can, it doesn't exactly give a perfect picture of how many ship types are in use. It's more of a snapshot "in the moment."

Yes those numbers are highly skewed it seems. Black Ops/Titans are pretty worthless except in fleet warfare. A lot of people actually make character dedicated to being a Titan pilot since you are kind of stuck in them once you get in.

Of course, it's a crap statistic since it's based on a static snapshot.
Still - the amount of supercaps is just stupid.

I agree about the number of supercaps being stupid. Its easier than ever to make money in 00 so maybe that has something to do with it? The hubs that is?

As for black ops, I disagree about them being used for fleet warfare. More like the ultimate in ganking or gurrilea warfare. I remember flying with Burn EDen back in the day and they made very good use of black ops, so good to the point people would be too scared to engage them.

They're not useless, but for how much they cost, you'd be better off in any number of other ships. They need serious work.
