Any 1 else notice the massive amount of pos towers that are just anchored and left at a moon?
Its for a start fairly annoying if you want that moon. Secondly a bit unfair that you can keep hostile corp from putting up a active pos that will be used this way.
And thirdly it must be a waste of server space.

So can pos that are left anchored without fuel pls auto un-anchor after 72 hours pls.

Just shoot it. Seriously, if it's unfueled it's not as if this is some major undertaking.

I like when someone just leaves it there without anchoring and runs off to get the guns, then when they come back, POS is missing :(

thats the point. u can anchor it and leave it.
yea its not a huge job to shoot 1 down but its plenty of 1 to warrant a simple timer.
prevention is better than cure after all.

People leave POSs up since there's only a limited amount of moons available, and High Sec POSs, once up, are unaffected by deteriorating Empire standings by the corp that put it there (whereas if they unanchored it and then lost standings, they'd be out of luck.) Try to negotiate with the guys to move the POS elsewhere if you want your own POS at that moon, or just buy the tower from them if they don't care about it any more. Or war dec them and destroy it.

If an auto-unanchoring mechanic were added I'd prefer it be for a much longer period than 72 hours. 72 days maybe. That would let people who do part-time POS work keep their real estate, while clearing the POSs owned by closed or genuinely inactive corps.

Unfueled makes no difference. An online and fueled tower just means it has a force field up. An offline large tower for example still has millions of shield and armor points to get through before you can remove it. So unless you've got a fairly decent fleet and don't mind spending half a day of mind-numbingly boring blasting, then yeah, its not some major undertaking Rolling Eyes

I agree with the OP. Offline towers should self destruct after 72 hours or have their shield & armor drastically reduced after a set amount of time.

Maybe make tower shield HP's dependant on the tower having fuel. Offlined tower = zero shields.

please come back when you've learned basic maths. Small towers can be eaten by 10 BS in an hour, especially when you know that its offline and therefore no guns etc.

Even large towers go down fast to scaling levels of BS. If you really want a tower dead and you don't have the time, patience or firepower to do it yourself then get in a bunch of mercs for a one off job. If killing it that way makes it unprofitable to you then you probably didn't want the moon tbh.
