Docking at an outpost.

OK this happens quite regularly (i.e. about 3/4 of the time). When my characters try to dock at a Minmatar Outpost, the system says "Please Wait...". Maybe 5 minutes later it actually lets me dock. I have to keep re-trying it. This is a station where I'm neutral to the sov corp, pay a fee to dock and have an off station 0km bookmark.

However, I have another character that's in the sov corp that almost always docks instantly. As you can imagine, sitting outside a station in null whilst you wait for Eve to do whatever the hell it's doing (doing docking fee transaction, who knows?) is a gigantic pain in the buttox. It's also kind-of "dangerous".

What's the deal on this and are you going to fix Outpost docking? It's also a massive **** to have to click Yes on the payment dialog every single time. It should remember, or do it automatically.

during this time, do you tab out from the game?

because it happens that when you tab out (basically, client lose focus) after issuing a dock / jump order, the dock / jump will not happen, wich is awfull when you are travelling several accounts at once, since you alt tab constently after issuing warp + jump order......

Aha? That's *very* interesting. I do tab between characters a lot. I will do some experiments.

OK, so I tested it out for a few hours now, and not alt-tabbing from before initiating warp to dock does make a difference. It goes down from having to try to dock around 8 - 9 times in a row to around 2 or 3. Occasionally, like 1 in 10, I get in right away.

So it's still screwed up, just less so than before.
