I was fighting some scumbag farmers. Had a support only fit, no tank at all dominix dead to rights. MY HARPY'S blasters were happily ripping thru its armor and into hull when they SHUT OFF with 18 rounds left per hopper with "an attempt is being made to activate that module" message. My rocket launcher keeps firing away. Keeps registering a damage message in logs so i know its not normal weapon desynch.(cant reactivate blasters) I keep orbiting him at 1k for 50k as he crawls back to station. I keep reloading launcher and spitting rockets in a vain attempt to at least keep agro timer up. Warp scram remains active. but my TURRETS have been disabled. He put his Ogre 2 one me briefly then put them back in bay just before turrets shut off. Ogres didnt even get in range to hit me before they were returned.
Aliance member lost an abaddon fighting these guys The same way, his turrets just turrets deactived, and they got in warp jam range while he was waiting for them to reactivate.

I really believe this is some sort of hack or exploit. Launchers are not effected, YET, but if this is a hack or exploit i am sure its just a matter of time.

I have seen weapon desynch before. Weapon keeps fireing and burning ammo but log registers no damage on target. This usually corrects itself in a few rounds. Weapona have NEVER deactivated on me when they desynch, and desynch has afected both turrets and launchers at same time.

Has anyone encountered this? Seems a very, very serious issue that needs looked into immediatly

{added all caps and BOLD to MY HARPY'S for the reading challenged that keep thinking i was fluing Dominix and skipped over this part about my flying a harpy. stop cuting class to play EVE.. its showing people}

So you're suggesting "they" have direct access to the server and are able to shut down your turrets by hacking? Let me get my tin foil hat!Shocked

Its odd the same thing happens everytime we fight this same group. Do you have a better explanation? Not like farmers never cheat or use macro programs to say mine for example. Just look at the problems facting other games out there( WoW, Lineage 2, Neverquest, etc etc). Its a consistant pattern in all games.

The server was breached a while ago, you know...huge database, no logs to trace changes, anything might've happened.

Wow, so you waited two whole minutes before you decided to cancel? You think there are a hundred CCP staffers eagle eye'd on the forums for signs of tinfoil? Do you SEE a CCP reply to every stupid post? No? Try a petition maybe?

Not that it would make much difference anyway, you're implying that these guys somehow hacked the Eve cluster, turned your guns off and made it look like a desync.

It's not like the complexity of the game and conection to a huge server cluster would be prone to the occational hicup and wrong turn or anything. Millions of lines of code being so easy to manage and all that...

What you could do next time it happens is get someone over to cargo scan him.
you have to be quick, so you may want an alt ready for this.
If you find something intresting on the scan you will want to petition him (mention te time you made the scan in the petition).

If I understand you correctly mods like armor repairers and shield boosters keep functioning as does capacitor and shield recharge.

i am a noob but i know there are upgrades that will remove power from your system and in effect shut you down. do rockets need power/cap to fire? if so, then ?

hehehe! for a self confesed noob, you are indeed wise Very Happy this is probaley all that happened, the guy was either energy neut'd or he accidentley left an armor repair unit runnning and killed his own cap Laughing

But to awnser your question, no missile based weapons don't requre cap to fire, hybrids and lasers do however.

You damn trolls are so stupid you do not even READ my post before flaming.
my Harpy's cap remained solid at 90%
my scram kept running
my afterburner kept running [both of which require capacitor as i remember for you idiots that seem tho think i was neutralized]
Also: As stated above, logs show the "trying to activate module, Please be patient message" at time blasters shut off (when cap is empty you get the "cap empty weapo deactivating" message, not this one)this "weapon is being activated" message remained for the 50k crawl to station untill i was 5k from station and then weapons worked long enough to get thru Dominix's shield and armor a second time (again neutralizer tin foil jerks how does this happen when i am neutralized?)
Dominix fitings:
High slots 3 large T2 energy transfers 3 large t2 Sheild transfers
Mid Slots were ALL t2 cap rechargers
low slots were ALL t2 cap power relays


like i said its was strictly support for a ROKH macro protector. I had agro on dominix the other ship had no agro on me so i could attack the dominix and not be attacked.

thus your "he is bleeping stupid and didnt realize he was neutralized" theory is bogus and just stupid troll tactics

Something is wrong. And the point of this thread was as warning, and asking comunity if they had found similar incidents. Its sad when my concern is turned into a flame fest by a bunch of uneducated jerks who cant read past second grade level (you obviously cant read details, just imagine what you want is written) who's only way to get their jollies is to trash threads. Lose some weight, see the sun, go rent a girlfriend (you do not have the social skills for a real one) and enjoy life.

You're right! That's totally different than real life!

You have, of course, filed a petition regarding this bug correct? Since that would be about a million times as productive as coming to the forums.

ookay... Shocked

Caaaalllllmmmmmm Dooowwwwwnnnn.

Allright then, to awnser your question, while i've not SEEN this happening before, Yes, i have heard of it happening before in a highley laggy situation, ie: a 300 in local fleet battle, where a corp mate lost his carrier because he was unable to switch on his armor repair units, but was still able to control navigation and drones, it seems that one module (or in his case 2) got stuck on "attempt is underway to activate this module" when for everything else he had full control.

It is werid, but it does happen, and i highley doubt that any form of hacking was to blame, i guess you just got unlucky and happened to be on a node that was under extreamley heavy load.

Try petitioning it, see what they say.

one more small detail: Blasters chose to deactivate when I started doing hull damage on target Dominix
The original exploit petition I filed while this was happening was given an automated reply stating it would be investigated and that petiton was closed. When the petiton message box poped up my blasters imedialty reactivated at that precise moment. Managed to get the Dominix to hull a second time when blaster turned off again. That happened about 5k from station. Dominix docked about half a minuite later.

[by mentioning pop up box I am in no way implying GM culpability; just suggesting that whatever was happening that respose box corrected the problem by meerly happening. And I wanted to mention the 'coincidental' hull damage = no weapons TWICE thing]

and yes automatic payment on account is currently deactivated. I have a week left unless i decide to stick this game out.
