I came upon a group of energy turrets at a moon, obviously they used to be attached to a POS

but there's no POS there now, just the turrets. Quite a few of them are damaged and disabled, but the ones that aren't damaged are showing an "online" status. This is in high sec, btw

so my question is, if i dec these guys to steal their turrets, are they gonna shoot at me or what? how are they online without a tower? or is that just a glitch?

You shouldn't need to war dec them to take the turrets. You should be able to rep them and unanchor them. As far as the online ones... you might not be able to get those because more than likely a GM will just remove them all though once you get the other modules it can't hurt to ask.

A few years ago, when POS arrays first became able to be un-anchored and "stolen" - there was a bug where if you destroyed the POS and then repped up the guns, they would go online and start shooting you.

It's possible that this is a left-over from that time.

i posted a reply here but someone deleted it?


anyway i petitioned this as even after a war dec i couldn't do anything with the turrets and CCP's official response was that there is still a POS there so i can't have them

there is NOT a POS there though. so thanks for that CCP

Petition again or escalate the petition. Hopefully you get a GM willing to actually look.

Also be sure to rate the GM's response in the petition system as a idiot.

Um, dumb question but... did you check your overview settings and make sure that Control Towers are shown?

That's not a dumb question at all, actually, he should sit on the guns and do a 1000km scan to see if he can pickup any towers.

Making sure he has 'unchecked' the Use Overview Settings box.

Technically the POS could be on one grid and the guns on another.

It is however likely the guns are bugged as I have had GM's remove onlined highsec guns with no towers in the past. The only annoying bit was that they were handed back to the corp that anchored them and not me.

I dealt with this problem recently; GM thanked me for reporting "bugged" POS gun(s) and said they would be removed. I asked if GM would give me a specific one that was incapacitated, which I repped up to full (it went "online" afterward.) I pointed out that I had a bookmark to the object, and had spent about 20 minutes repping it with a friend. The request was turned down. I was sad that the time spent repairing it was apparently wasted.

I am 10000% sure there is no POS there. the POS has a killmail up for it on battleclinic from 2008 even, so it hasn't been there for a long time

my first petition answer was "you don't have a POS there so we can't give you the guns", which made zero sense since i explained all of this, and after basically admitting that they didn't even read my petition they then changed it to "there's still a POS there"

it takes 5 days to get an answer from someone who doesn't even read the petition apparently. and then once they do read it they won't even check it out. not the first time i've had that experience either
