Undocking from station and random load times

When you undock from a station, for some reason the game is giving you extended load times while it will continue the game without you by throwing your ship into space.

While random load times from the server are something you can deal with, but putting your ship into space without you, you are unable to react to any danger while you have a black screen.

Also you have 3 seconds of invulnerability the moment you undock which are very important for some ships and situations.

Is there anything going to be done about this issue?

30seconds not 3 (maybe you forgot the zero)

As long as you dont touch or activate anything.
The only thing you can do is to stop your ship, which will not break your 30s invul timer.

The black screen after undocking is about 3times longer the first time i undock after i logged in. After that first undock the Time is very short.

OK that's good to know.

So what your saying is: (example)

I un-dock from a station, and for 30 seconds none is able to (lock) apply dmg on my ship right?

So I could un-dock from a station and see if it's safe to warp off or return to dock back to the station safely if within 30 seconds and within station range as long as I didn't pull any action right?

So when I'm un-docking from "Jita IV - Moon 4 - Caldari Navy Assembly Plant" with a ship, as long as I can warp faster off than let's say a pirate can lock and hit me I'm safe if that's correct?

Also I remember there was a small blue timer circle on the top left of the screen the moment you un-docked from station, is that something they got rid of it also?

(I know microjumped from station un-dock is something else which make you vulnerable)
