Good people of the forum…
A public structure I use for research was recently reinforced.
I was unaware anything was amiss until I received a notification my jobs were paused.
I am unable to cancel the jobs (thus retrieving the blueprints). Is this a function of having shields reinforced? Were the jobs being paused a function of the shield timer as well, or just the station owner off-lining the service?
Second question: it seems the structure owner put the structure into low power mode just before the shield timer ran out. From what I could see, that put it into the hull timer as soon as it came out of shield reinforcement. (Low power does not get an armor timer, right?)
So why would they put it in low power. I can’t think of any advantage and leaving it powered they could at least force the adversary to grind the armor if they were not going to defend.
It seems pointless to me, so I’m hoping there was some deeper strategy at work someone could clue me into.
