I noticed tonight a BoP that would stay up close to you with Tractor Beam Repulsors running resulting in a stun for the entire duration of TBR. (6? 8? seconds?)

Am I getting it wrong? It happened more than once, but I didn't think TBR did a stun at all.

You were probably stunned by photonic shockwave/tricobalt. However tractor beam repulsors + evasive action is one of my favourite

what you are experiencing is a very sinister combo:
photonic shockwave followed immediately by a tractor beam repulsors will extend the stun from 3 seconds to however long the repulsors is in effect.

I personally consider this one a bug exploit (which is rare, coming from me), since repulsors should not be extending the stun but it does.

I'm pretty sure it's a bug also - I suspect Photonic Shockwave's stun duration is coded as "until the target comes to a complete stop".

I timed a 32 second stun once. My team still won 15-1 but I was pretty mad. I was just floating around backwards. i'm pretty sure it was either lag or hacking.

Well, report it as a bug, that's what we can do.

Was shockwaved and repulsed today as well except I guess I got a double whammy of the repulsers from another ship as when I re spawned I was flying backwards for another 10 seconds or so even though I was about 30KM away from the guy who put it on me.

Tractor Repulsors are the new Gravity well. lol

I stopped using the shockwave repulsor combo when I realized what was going on... damn evil combo, can't be intended.
