I guess it someone that named his character "an unknown entity".

Better than the guy that called his character "security guard", I suppose.

lol no no ... it happens almost every encounter, pvp and pve ... i think its some ship that is just out of sensor range to determine what it is, yet still within the oddly huge range of combat log grabbing.

I guess that this would be possible with Jam Sensors etc but it still feels a bit strange that the log shows "unknown entity".
What feels even more strange is this: "ZZZ deals 129 (1422) Tetryon Damage to XXX with an unknown ability."

An unknown ability?

This means your client can't identify the source of the damage for some reason. It occurs sometimes due to lag (somebody decloaked and shot you, but your computer doesn't know where the damage is coming from yet). If you're seeing it consistently, I'd suggest trying a file check (through the launcher) to see if it's something in that department. If that doesn't work, head over to the tech support forums, because this should be a rare occurrence.

Would have been better had they created the name "Your own Stupidity"

Thanks for you reply Edgecase. I checked everything on my side, file check OK, ping 111 ms from my 100 Mbits fiber connection, no real problems when checking with nettest (+400KB/sec on ever port).

My PC's performance should be OK, AMD Phenom II X4 3.2 GHz processor, ATI Radeon HD 5770 1GB.

There must be some other reasons for these "Unknown entity" and "unknown abilities" in combat log, any suggestions?
