Just like the title says, I have it fully upgraded, it's not working as advertised. Fix it.

hmm I have fully upgraded Dfield and it breaks locks just fine. Are you eating clusters through it?

The last time this came up, I went to all the effort of making a video to prove it was working right. I'm not doing that again, but I still haven't noticed any issues at all ever.

I was being pursued, barrel roll was on cooldown and I heard the alert I was going to be locked up, popped distortion field, and it didn't break.

The thing is, it breaks "missile locks", it does NOT "evade missiles".

Could this be the oversight?
(If not, then don't forget to pop it a touch early to counter lag when you try it next time, engine abilities bridge this gap, but the lag can and does muck with those last second D-field lock breaks)

What? Breaking missile locks and evading missiles mean the same thing in this game. You break the lock, boom, missile doesn't hit you.

I believe there is an issue right now with drone missiles going through missile breaks

It works just like the other stuff, except being instant instead of several seconds long.

> It DOES break missile locks. All of them.
> It DOES cancel missiles in flight. All of them. The animation still plays.
> It does NOT behave any differently with the confirmed bugged missile sentry drones, which sometimes to always ignore missile locks.
> It does NOT behave any differently with the possibly bugged double volley clusters, whose second volley is not broken by the same mechanic that breaks the first, once the missiles are in flight.

It is working. Like someone previously said, maybe lag made it so the missile hit you before you popped it. I have even broken locks from seeker mines and drone missiles with it. I'll also point out that it only breaks the lock. It doesn't provide you with a few seconds of lock immunity like the engine ability does. This means you could click it and a split second later they could be locking on you again.

It doesn't break a lock, it stops you from getting locked on.
