Officers crazy neuting

A bit sleepy ratting in a Gila in Sansha space, notice I am dropping shields fast, and cap is...empty?

Try to warp out, can't because of NO CAP, at all. I check the recharge, not even 1 joule gets recharged.

So it's Mr. Vizan neuting me.

So my ship goes down, oh well, maybe I will recoup once I kill him. (3.5b drop)

Cyno in carrier, warp it to belt, and kill him with fighters.

But I can't help notice... that the carrier is also totally dry, 0 cap.

So Mr. Vizan just neuted 40.000 cap instantly?

Is this intended design? If so why can't we have a neut like that? Twisted

I would like to hear from others that have killed other officers and if they have experienced this, I'm also wondering if this is the case with ALL officers or just some, specifically the Sansha Officers.

yes it is.

the officer spawns are meant to be a challenge for a small fleet, not solo.

When you jump a cap ship it uses 85% or so of the cap. Then warp to sight leaves you pretty empty when you land there.
