Ok, this was *******s.

I got an escalation to a DED4 site... fine. But it was in lowsec... so I set up my ship to cloak, etc. and headed out.
I started the first room, and cleared 95% of it, but not all of it... and then had to warp to a safe because the 7 -10 pirates in local were trying to scan me down.

But... WTF.
Every escalation I've ever done gets a 24 (+ a little) hour timer on it... this one, despawned, in around 10-15 minutes...
Bug?

Anyway... sucks...but that's life. Just be forewarned about this design feature/flaw.

I would imagine that DED complex escalations fall under the despawn rules of DED plexes, not the rules of expeditions (the escalations you get from exploration plexes), so if you flagged a despawn trigger on the DED plex, there really should be no surprise.

Then again, if you were only in the first room, it sounds like a bug. Have you tried... bug reporting it?

every escalation ive ever done despawned as soon ive had to warp off. would leaving a cloaky alt keep them in place?

I got a similar situation with the 3 step of the "Booster R&D" escalation. I was doing the steps with a BC and the 3rd step did contain a stage with about 50+ NPC BCs. So I warped back to get a bigger ship and to take a break for one hour. After returning the site had disappeared. I did not kill anything and the timer should have 20+ hours left.

I wrote a petition about this, and got the answer, that the completion trigger was activated for this site. If the completion trigger has been activated, the site will despawn after about 2 minutes if the last player leaves the site.

The completion trigger is not known and it may be that the completion trigger is, that a player ship has arrived. So for some sites, you only got "a single try" or you must have a second player, that will keep the site open, until you can return.

Workaround:

Newbie alt in covops (shouldn't take long to train).

Can sit indefinitely holding it there till you get back from your bio-break or whatever.
