Cap issues?

I'm running a severely cap hungry boat (abaddon) that I 'SHOULD' be cap stable. EFT, and 6 hours of running last night RIGHT up to downtime, and I was cap stable. dropped to around 10%, but always bounced back to perfect.

Running this morning after downtime, I'm now capping out, had to change my tactics. Doing the exact same stuff as last night, now a few hours later, and i'm capping myself empty. Talked to a friend flying a minmatar BS, and they are saying they are capping lower then they normally do.

Is anyone else having cap issues? or is this a weird 'freak' moment?

How close to cap unstable are you? The reason I ask is that it could be that if you're close enough to cap unstable, one or more of your modules (usually, it's a mod with high activation cost/long cycle like a microwarp) can cycle at just the right moment to nudge you out of stability. It happens rarely and usually only if your borderline cap stable.


"----in' A, right?"

"Trouble is, those things cost like a million and a half each."

"----, you pay me half that and I'll hump in some c4 and blow the ---- out of it my own damn self."

MWD'ing, i'm not capstable at all. but without the mwd on (how i spend 90% of the time) I'm like, 50% cap stable.

I crashed and relogged and it seemed to go away for me, dunno about my friend. was weird.

maybe you finished a skill, like rapid firing or something that will make any of your modules to cycle faster (or an implant maybe?) => then you use more cap/sec, and if your ship is barely stable, this can be enought to make it unstable....
