I’m just trying to figure out what happened, and if there’s something I’m not ‘getting.’
I had undocked from station. I was sitting there making some adjustments to overviews and what not, when all of a sudden I was attacked, and saw drones buzzing around me, I got a shield alarm, etc. I just instinctively hit dock-up, since I didn’t even know what was going on, and doubted I’d have time to assess the situation before being killed (didn’t even see an enemy on-screen, though no doubt I would have if I had zoomed-out and oriented the screen).
Once inside station I started evaluating what happened. I had a suspect timer, as well as all other associated combat timers. I also found out the guy who had attacked me. He was in a Loki or other T3 cruiser.
1 - I was attacked.
2- I did not attack back.
3 - I got a suspect timer.
4 - I was not CONCORDed.
5 - As far as I know, the attacker was not CONCORDed.
6 - It was high sec.
7 - My safety was set to green. I confirmed this by undocking, and checking.
I don’t care that I was attacked. I’m just trying to understand game mechanics, and am wondering if some kind of weird glitch occurred. Should I get a suspect timer if someone attacks me? The only thing I can remotely think of that explains this whole thing is that I inadvertently clicked in space and accidentally stole something from a can floating nearby, without ever knowing it or even seeing the can. I’ll log into that ship after writing this and see if anything is in my cargo bay, but beyond that, does anyone have an explanation?
