Hello. Can anyone tell me the length of time the guns will continue shooting you even after you have no GCC or aggression timers on them? I've had a few times where I waited in station until my timers were up (Then 5 minutes longer, if not more) and undocked and still had the station guns agress me, or faction navys chase/shoot at me. Is this a sort of bug or are there hidden timers in addition to the ones shown in the top left corner?

Thanks.

This is one of those long standing timer bugs. Basically, what happens is when you go to dock, if you land outside the immediate docking range of station, you will get a 15-min aggro timer from the station owner when you dock.

Due to various interactions, you will rarely see this timer. Therefore, many times the safe time is say, 15 or 16 minutes after you dock, and have appeared in station. That assessment may be conservative, but should account for most inter-process lag.

So 15 or 16 minutes after docking or 15 or 16 minutes after docking + the 15 minute timer? Ty for the info though.

here is how I understand it: (feel free to correct me if I am wrong)

generally, the timer is 15 minutes. However, if the offence is against the station/gait gun owners - your timer will be refreshed once they shoot you. meaning that if you have a 15 minute timer, you can bounce between safe spots and in 15 minutes you are done. Or you have a 15 minute timers, after 5 minutes of the timer you decide to dock - you get shot - this action refreshes your timer to 15 minutes(same idea with gate guns).

the short version: 15 minutes after the last interaction with the party you offended.

Yes, that is correct as I understand it.

Anytime you get shot, the timer starts over again. It takes 15 minutes from the time you docked before its cleared. Personally, I'd wait another 10+ mins.

For GCC, it's 15 minutes after you are last seen on grid. So if you jump through a gate, your timer resets. If you land at a station, your timer resets. If you flip off the fuzz, your timer resets. If CONCORD is after you, just give up.

Basically, hide for 15 minutes (safespot or docked).

Here Is All You Need To DO


Just put your mouse in the upper left corner of your screen. It will display any invisible timers that you may have, if nothing pops up your good to go.



Mechanic Is This: Your timers are refreshed anytime that you fly near a station or stargate (yes that includes docking and undocking) It is not a bug, it is just that people don't know about the mouse trick. You can have 3 simultaneous timers active at any given time depending on what faction owns the station/stargate.


But your mouse in the upper left hand corner will display them all, no timers mean no aggression.
