What determines the "Capture Odds"?

After disabling a ship, sometimes I find the capture odds are different, even for the same ship.


Simple. Your crew, their crew, and a random number generated by the program.


i think that sheilds have something to do with it...once i captured a frigate with a courier and i had 100% sheilds...another time ive tried to capture courier with a frigate and ive got 50% armour...then it doesnt work


Shields, crew and random odds. I believe it says this in the documentation that came with EV.

Tear it down

Another factor, I believe, is the exact armor status of the disabled ship. I don't know if shields enter into it, btw.

We come in peace, shoot to kill, shoot to kill, shoot to kill...

basically it is the number of people in your crew and the number of people in thier crew with the status of your ship
