2 people located my wormhole pos, I received a mail stating that it was being attacked and the shields were down to 98%. I had just checked the fuel for it no 2 minutes before. it had 2 weeks left at the least. The password is a complex password and only 2 people know what it is. None of my corpmates were on at the time. So how did they lower my shields and cost me 800+ million isk?

Maybe the other guy who knows the password helped them?

You had 98% when you received the mail, until the next notification they popped the tower most likely (if the tower was indeed destroyed).

This was a matter of minutes, didn't destroy they tower, they just took the fuel out of it. they only had one BS and a BC. i doubt they would destory it in 2 minutes.

Only corp members with the fuel tech rights can remove fuel... So if your fuel was gone, it was your corp mates - noone else.

They popped his orca and his other ships. he is the one who invested 100 times more then i have. he barely even gave the password to me. there is no way it was given out. least possible answer.

If that is the case, petition it and ask how the tower was destroyed.

can't believe this hasn't been said.

you took the fuel out yourself and are posting this to gain credibility to your other corpie that you are trying to find out how.

You can also allow alliance members to access the fuel bay.

Who cares if they had the forcefield password? It only lets them inside the forcefield, where unless they are members of the corp/alliance they can do nothing.

Oh, except bumping the orca outside the forcefield, but it doesn't sound like that's what happened..., and if it did, then get an extra ship maintenance array next time Laughing

Ok thanks, didn't know that, how would one set up those rights tho? Always thought settings were for corp only?

Are you sure you actually put the stront on stront bay and not in a 'regular' fuel bay ?

So the question is how did they take down the tower?

Yeah... well I doubt it. There are so many people out there with a POS and yet they are clueless about POS mechanics. It's not the first time I see people blaming the forcefield password...

OP said the POS wasn't destroyed, the fuel just disappeared/was stolen/whatever.

I'm not certain how one sets it up, and I can't really test it.

But I know for sure a spy alt we managed to put into an alliance had access to the fuel bay in a POS in a different corp. He stole the fuel to offline the tower so it could be attacked easily.

You can't put strontium in the fuel bay...

My first thought too.

To OP: If only two of you have the password and the tower was not destroyed then the most likely option is that one of you took the fuel out or gave the password to a third party, whether intentionally or not.

Other possibilities:

1) Perhaps you went to fill it up and dragged the fuel in the wrong direction.
2) Your mate accidentally didn't set a password or removed it (can you do that)
3) There is a bug - but you'll have to petition to get an answer to this.
