ACTUALLY:

The one thing in common with this and the other incident is that both victims were refitting at the time.
It's possible that the drone hit you at the exact moment that the server recalculated your ship's resistances, etc. and as a result it did way more damage than it was supposed to.



There was no way the dread could refit. It was hostile and neutral to every carrier on field. In fact it was in the process of murdering said carriers.

Are you aware of this thing called a mobile depot? He had one in cargo, which indicates that he was aware of them. If he had more than one and had deployed it, he could have been refitting.
It was said in the eve-kill comments that he was refitting.

Also if you noticed, it was a WASP that did 20k damage. A single wasp can never ever do 20k damage, regardless if the ship has 0% resistances or not.

I realize that. That doesn't mean, for whatever reason, that the game could glitch on refitting and give the ship negative or >100% resists briefly, or something.



Wasps != 20k damage each regardless of refit.

Did you not see where I said "I realize that"? Christ, it's like talking to a brick wall.

Obviously a ruse - Goons are too scared to undock their caps, this could never happen anyway!

I wouldn't be inclined to believe him except for two things. First of all, this isn't the first person to complain about this exact bug. Second of all, the previous person who complained about this had a video showing their ship (I believe it was an Archon) from a third-person perspective losing structure at a slow but steady pace, but then instantly exploding at about 50%. No titans were on field or on that killmail.

I'll have to find that thread.

So it was even worse than that, actually. He was alpha'd by this bug through 10% armor and all of his structure while he was refitting to reinforced bulkheads.
Here's the thread.
Pay close attention to the video and the logs.

Sorry, the fun police detected unauthorized fun in the area, so we had to delay our BNI fight to apprehend those having unauthorized fun.

Also if anyone knows how to reproduce this exploit (because one does not simply "glitch" drones) they should privately report it to CCP via ticket. Do NOT post how to "glitch" drones in this manner in the thread.

Methinks server ticked, mods were refitted, drones shot, stars aligned and magic resulted in wtfpwndcap

I want some 'glitch' drones.

In fact, I want a lot of them,

I also can't believe that like 12 t2 frigates ruined your T2 cruiser/ t3 battlecruiser operation.

He obviously would have died anyways, so I don't think he should be reimbursed. But CCP does need to fix this bug. They're aware of it apparently, but they seem to have shrugged it off as a "can't fix".
