    was com on money when someone jumped in my cv and researched arty. when i got back in and tried to cancel it, it would not register and continued researching
    i guess it has something to do with anti grief protection on commanders (if there is any)

    either that or it was just an odd thing i ran into and is completely impossible to reproduce

    Yep, you can't cancel research started by another player through normal means. Not a bug, a feature!

    Or if it is a bug, its one that happens all the time.

    Other people can't cancel your research?

    Shit, I'm known to hop into an idle cv and start up some research if the com is off twiddling his thumbs. I figure he can cancel it if he likes. It's a bit of a duck move if he can't cancel it.

    This isn't intended as far as I know, but I've never really heard of this before.

    This is strange, because I was able to cancel research that someone else started. It was a match on downfall (a shitty one).

    >get back into CV cancel the research cause no money for compo
    >lose the game because dual HE canons


    So yeah, it could be that the research can be candled if one get f+s+spaced out of the CV or the just leave. But I do for sure remeber cancelling the fuck out of the compo research. Also JK was a little bitch about it too, and proceeded to grief me for the rest of the match.
