I have been playing a game and right now we are invading another corp.
I don't have the luxury of a pod.

Not only do I not get a pod, but I also do not get an avoid.

This is on Micro's board.

I should have podded out, I did exit in the sector with enemy planets.
However this is what the game recorded
You destroyed your own ship!
You must wait for 1 day(s) to get back in.

Something is definitely wrong.

Check the daily log - that message usually results from a CBY. The log will confirm if you CBY'd or not.

Whenever your ship is destroyed and you don't have a pod, it counts as "you killed yourself".

I did not CBY...... This is the third time that happened to me. I get no pods!

The cannon should have podded me out ... It didn't..
Something is drastically wrong.

Ok, I thought you said the ship had no pod. You said "I don't have the luxury of a pod. " So you do have a pod but it's not podding you?

It could also be related to other settings like max pod count. There are settings that limit the number of times you can pod from a given ship, or per day.

What game is it on Micro's site? I'll see if I can get the data and take a look.

Zipp if you were using the blue ISS it has no pod by default. That and all the timing issues is why we stopped trying in there.

Best of luck

Thanks Kaus

Well it seems that another player is left with no pods. Farley just exploded and never came back. We were both in Privy's.

I just verified that the privateer is configured to have an escape pod.

I can't seem to locate this TWA anywhere. Is this something that has continued to be a problem? Any chance I could get a TWA where it's happening so I can try to repeat it?
