I don't post on the forums very much so sorry if this is in the wrong section. I have a question about the new sov mechanics.

Lets say someone anchors their things that go at the gates, and then attacks a station or a hub or both puts them in reinforced mode. Can someone else come along at that point and finish killing them or does it have to be the guys who anchored the things at the gates?

I read the developer blog about this stuff, and I can't tell for sure.

Interesting question, actually. If it's not tied to the attacking force (which I assume it isn't) it opens up scenario's where three or more parties are fighting for one system. That should turn up with some damn epic fights XD.

Doesn't matter who anchors the SBUs. They make the station/hub/TCU vulnerable, and that's it. Who does the shooting is irrelevant.

Are you hoping you can just set up your own SBUs so you can block anyone else from doing it? Try it! Laughing

i think what he is trying to ask is:

Suppose a station was under seige, SBU units are in place at the gates, Ihub is going to be destroyed. Suppose someone in system with a freighter is logged off in system. You wait for the attackers primetime to end and come in, finish off the Ihub and set up your own.

Once the SBUs (gate flag modules) have gone online, any station/hubs are vulnerable. Period. Anyone can attack them. Once they've been knocked out (through several reinforcement stages, the TCU (system ownership flag module) is vulnerable. Anyone can attack it and destroy it. Once it's destroyed, anyone can anchor and online a new TCU.

But here's the thing: you know those SBUs that made the system vulnerable? They're still up and running. Which means that even if someone snuck in with a blockade runner and a TCU, that TCU will be immediately vulnerable, and will probably be a prime target for the original attackers who fronted the cash to siege the system in the first place.

At least, that's my understanding.

If this is what should be happening then unfortauntly CCP has failed so far at it. This game is simply unplayable at large scale alliance warfare right now due to node death/lag.
